Reading Through The New Testament in 2016 - December 14th, 2016 - Revelations 10 What is the “Myste
In Revelations 10 it says:
But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets. (vs7)
In the end, there will be time when the mystery of God is accomplished. But what is this mystery?
Paul referred to the “mystery of God” 4 times in his letters and reveals to us what the mystery is.
Here’s what Paul says in Colossians:
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27
The mystery of God is Christ in us, our hope of glory.
The mystery of God is that He came down and lived a humble life, was a friend of sinners, gave himself up to take on our shame and sin so that we would receive life instead of death.
The mystery of God is that Christ came to live in us, to give us his power, to show us the way, and to lead us to glory.
Revelation 10 tells us there will be a day when this mystery is complete. When “Christ in us” becomes fully realized.
This is where our story is leading us: to a place where Christ becomes everything. To a point where our lives resemble Christ’s, where we are giving, loving, being a friend of sinners, and living fully alive to the love of God.
This means that today you can have hope. This is God’s desire, His will, that you would discover that Christ is alive and within you and He is your hope of glory.
