The Revelation Of The Prototokos – How To Understand The Scripture Episode 13

Christ Mystery:

Christ MysteryChrist mystery is the mystery of the firstborn from the dead. No one understood Christ mystery better than Holy Spirit and that is why the revelation is given to Him. The revelation of Christ mystery is the main reason why the Holy Spirit came as stated in the verse below.

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.”

John 16:13-14

Now the statement above is very instructive. The statement says that the Holy Spirit will not reveal anything about Himself but about Jesus Christ. This is because the purpose of Holy Spirit’s Christ revelation is for Him to glorify Jesus. And the way to do is for Him to take that which He received from Christ and show them to His people. This is what is called Christ mystery! Here, it is important for us to understand the description of the personality of the Holy Spirit by Christ. Jesus called Him the Spirit of Truth, which means He has no lie in Himself. The making and content of Him is just Truth. This implies that Christ mystery that He’s going to reveal is the hidden truth that has not been made known.

Christ Mystery Is The Truth Revealed:

Therefore, since His making is truth, He can only give what He has which is the Truth. So whatever the Holy Spirit says must be seen as the Truth because His nature is nothing but the Truth. Also Jesus spelled out His duty this way;

“he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”

John 16:13

This teaching is very insightful “Antichrist Spirit What Is It?”

The understanding fact is that the Holy Spirit will do nothing else except to guide the believers into ‘all truth’. Importantly, it implies that it is in the hand of the Holy Spirit only to direct believers into all truth. And therefore, no one else has this duty to perform except He that knows the truth. Any believer seeking to know the truth which is Christ mystery should seek the face of the Holy Spirit.  The believer doesn’t need to go elsewhere to seek Him because He is the indwelling person in him.

These things should not deter you in life read about them HERE

The revelation of Christ mystery is therefore within the believer because he carries the source on his inside. Any believer that goes elsewhere to seek for Christ mystery (the Truth) will have himself to blame. That very believer will receive a lie because the only quintessence of the truth is the Holy Spirit. The reality is that outside the Holy Spirit Christ mystery cannot be revealed anywhere else.

The Things To Come Is Christ Mystery:

Another thing the Holy Spirit will do is to show the believers ‘things to come’. The things to come are encapsulated in Christ mystery which is the body of Truth. Apostle Paul writing about this made these statements below;

This short story is very thrilling read it HERE

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”

1 Corinthians 2:9-13

Also, in another place he made this statement that;

“Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ). Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;”

Ephesians 3:4-5

The Epistles Are The Christ Mystery Revealed:

Christ MysteryThis is an indication that the Holy Spirit actually showed the Apostles and Prophets ‘things to come’. This is because He revealed things to come (Christ mystery) to them. And they jolted it down in what is called the epistles today. Therefore, based on this assertion, it’s apt to say that the epistles are the revelation of the things to come. And if the epistles are the revelation from the Holy Spirit it means that they are the truth. So the epistles are the truth and anybody studying these epistles is studying the truth. The study of the epistles is the study of Christ mystery revealed by the Holy Spirit.

The meeting need gospel what it is find out HERE

But remember, the truth must be rightly divided for it to be rightly digested. There is something we should have at the back of our minds while studying any book in the New Testament. And that is the New Testament reveals the nature and character of God in Christ. However, in the Old Testament the right and perfect character of God is hibernated. This is why the Old Testament is called the mystery. Let’s see how Apostle Paul puts it here;

“Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,”

Romans 16:25

The Epistles Are The Embodiment Of The Truth:

Therefore, the epistles in the New Testament are no exceptions in this regard. They are written to reveal God in Christ to us. And worthy to mention is that they were written to reveal what the believer in the gospel has become in Christ. Therefore, the revelation of Christ mystery is the revelation of the believer in Christ.

Stop these inhumanities to man read about them HERE

In other words, the epistles were written to express in details the finished work of Christ as regards to man’s salvation.

“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory”

1 Corinthians 2:7

Though hidden in from ages but the epistles made it known and clear in this dispensation. And therefore, these things are no longer mysteries today. If they are no longer mysteries it means that they are written in clear terms and can be understood when studied. Apostle Paul puts it this way

“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Christ Mystery Revealed In Clear Terms:

The arrival of the Holy Spirit means the revelation of things that are hidden in the Old Testament. This revelation was given to the Apostles and Prophets of our dispensation in a more clear and understandable terms. This is what is called the revelation of the Truth or the revealed Truth.

Knw why God is not in control of this world HERE

“But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”

1 Corinthians 2:10

“Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;”

 Ephesians 3:5
