"Manifold Wisdom Made Known..."
“Manifold Wisdom Made Known…”
Paul speaks of the grace that was given to him.
We as True Believers have received this grace.
Grace manifest Itself in each one as He desires.
Read how Grace moved in Paul’s life.
Then, see the Truth that applies to all of us.
8 To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
9 and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things,
10 so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
- preach the unsearchable riches of Christ to the Gentiles
- bring to light to everyone the plan of the mystery hidden for ages...mystery of the church
- Giver of grace
- unsearchable riches
- created all things
- manifold wisdom
- the mystery hidden for ages
- the manifold wisdom of God is made known through the church…
Did you note “to whom” the wisdom of God is made known?
Read verse 10 again.
God has designed things so that “through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.”
Rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
Who are they?
What are they?
There is a hierarchy in the heavenly places - angelic and demonic (rebellious angels).
The church literally testifies of the wisdom of God before these rulers and authorities.
They know that the church is victorious in the blood of Jesus.
The angels rejoice...and long to know more.
The demons resist...and are terrified of the Day to come.
Are you of the True Church...the organism that is the Body of Christ?
Are you simply of the organization called “church”...a deception of the evil one?
Today is the day of salvation.
