The Greatest Secret Ever…(Revealed!)

What you read in the title of this article is no mistake. There is such a thing as the Greatest Secret. Now, all that I am going to do is let you in on what that secret was. Yes, I did say “was”, because it has already been revealed in the Bible.

I’ll bet you never knew that, among other things, the Bible is also a ‘mystery book’. In fact, the word ‘mystery’ is used in the bible a number of times.

Here is an example: The Apostle Paul was addressing the Christian believers in Corinth (which is in present day Greece) when he writes these words to them:

(I Cor. 2: 7-8)  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Note: (it would help if you also read the other verses before and after this scripture reference – read the context to help build your understanding)

Did you see the word ‘mystery’ in verse 7? Well, as the scripture says, this was such a great mystery that even the ‘princes of this world’ (the ones that killed him) didn’t know what it was. It also says that they wouldn’t have even crucified Jesus if they had known what this ‘mystery’ was.

So, “what is this ‘mystery’ that they are referring to?”, you may ask. The Bible has the answer to that question in black and white, so that no one should miss it. The answer is in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians in the city of Ephesus (which is near present day Ismir, Turkey).

We will start reading in Ephesians: (Ephesians 3: 3-8)  How that by revelation he [God] made known unto me the mystery;  (as I wrote afore [ in the book of Corinthians ] in few words, Whereby when 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 reavealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit [God]; That the Gentiles [unbelievers] should be fellowheirs and of the same body, and partakers of his [God’s] promise in Christ by the gospel:

Note: (it would help if you also read the other verses before and after this scripture reference – read the context to help build your understanding)

What these verses basically tell us is that this ‘mystery’ was that the Gentiles [which means * ‘other nations besides the Jewish nation of that day and time’] (who were considered to be unbelievers by the Jews) would now (after the Day of Pentecost in the first century A.D.) become fellowheirs (they would fully share in this promise of Christian victory when they became born again or saved) and that they would have the same promise that the Jews had access to in the ‘new birth into spiritual living’ which is covered very consisely in Romans 10: 9-10.

So, there is the proof (in black and white), that the Greatest Secret Ever has already been revealed! This was a mystery that was kept as a secret from the time that the world was formed, made and created by God until the time that He chose to reveal it to the Apostle Paul.

The only question now to be answered is – “what does this mean to me?”. I will answer this question by saying to you that this can only mean to you what you are ready to believe. I would suggest reading the article that I wrote called The Foundation of a Christian’s Belief Center. Why not read it now while you are here?


God Bless You,
