🖋 Making the Blind See with the Mystery:📖
🎥Chart Lesson: Mystery Made Clear📖
Learning the gospel of Christ according to the mystery is an eye-opening experience.
It is a commonly testified that learning to rightly divide Prophecy and Mystery makes the Bible “so clear”, “easy to understand”, and “just make sense”.
After being “in church” for sometimes 30-40 years people testify that learning how to rightly divide is like stained glass windows becoming clear for the first time.
Where people were once confused and blind to what the Bible said, they can now understand and see the truth of the gospel.
🖋Paul Sent to Open Eyes:
This eye opening doctrine is what Christ sent Paul to preach among the Gentiles (Eph 3:2).
“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light …” – Acts 26:18
Paul prayed without ceasing that eyes would be opened to the dispensation of the gospel God delivered to him.
“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints…” – Eph 1:18
This mystery of Christ concerns the hope of glory in heaven for anyone who believes the gospel of salvation.
“Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you… To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:” – Col 1:25-27
🖋Blinded to the Mystery:
Many people and churches are filled with confusion about what is the true gospel and what the Bible teaches and for whom. This doctrinal confusion is the result of devilish doctrines and false teachers who do not respect the mystery of Christ revealed to Paul.
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” – 2 Cor 4:4
“Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.” – 2 Tim2:7
🖋The gospel should be a light. The truth of what God is doing today should be eye-opening, it should make things clear.
If the “gospel” you have been taught has been dragging you through the throes of religion and self-justification, then you do not understand the glorious truth that Christ can make you free by the gospel.
If your Bible is impenetrable, and a closed book to your understanding, then your eyes have not yet been enlightened to understand what God has revealed in the mystery of Christ.
There is a fascination these days with performing miracles of healing to make blind men see. Yet, the healer who has 20/20 vision cannot see the mystery of Christ.
What profit is there in making the blind to see, when both are ignorant of the mystery?
It is by preaching the mystery of Christ that eyes are opened to the clarity of the gospel and the truth of the Bible rightly divided. It is our duty to make all men see…
“…to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:” – Ephesians 3:9
🎥The Beginning of the Church📖
🖋 What Grace Means📖
One thing you should realize about different religions and churches is that everyone uses the same words, but they define them differently.
Grace is one of those words that people describe very differently in various traditions.
What does grace really mean? Here is what we teach our children:
Grace is what someone else does to benefit you that you do not deserve.
Grace consists of three simple elements: 1) you did not do the work; 2) you benefit from it; 3) and you do not deserve it.
🖋 1. You did not do the work:
It is not grace if you perform the work to provide it.
“And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.” – Romans 11:6
If you build your own house, you did not receive it by grace. If you throw your own party, it is not a gift.
If you pay for your lunch, even though you did not cook it, you traded money of equal value for it. It is not received by grace. This is a trade. Men boast in what they buy, because it was by the work of their hands that they earned enough money to purchase it.
This means religion and all its sacraments are not grace. In religion you must perform sacraments of grace. True grace requires you not perform or work to provide it.
🖋 2. You benefit from it:
You may not have worked or deserved a punch in the face, but it most definitely does not benefit you. It is not grace. Wrath is not God’s grace.
You say, who would think such a thing? Many traditions redefine the doctrines of grace to refer to God’s unconditional election or reprobation. In these traditions the election or reprobation is unconditional (you did not work for it), but it doesn’t mean it benefits you.
You could be chosen to go to hell by no choice of your own (unconditional).
Not only is this a wrong idea of election, but it is a wrong idea about God’s grace. Grace is not about God’s election of who will and won’t be saved. Grace is a benefit! It is a blessing! It brings salvation!
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,” – Titus 2:11
🖋 3. You do not deserve it:
There are cases where people deserve someone else to work for their benefit.
Consider Paul’s instruction to “obey your parents” in Eph 6:1, Col 3:20, or for the younger to bear the burden of the widows in their family.
“But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.” – 1 Timothy 5:4
Why does Paul tell the younger to work for their benefit? The widows are not working for it, but they are benefiting from it. Is this a grace?
No this is not grace, this is a responsibility: a duty. Your parents are deserving of honor by virtue of the position they hold.
The Bible says to honor your father and mother, and that you should honor someone if it is their “due” (Rom 14:7).
Wise men brought Christ gifts, not because of grace, but because he deserved it. Consider guests of honor, rulers, dignitaries, or other great men of distinction. If a person merits the honor, then it is not a grace but an obligation.
Grace is given only to those who do not deserve it. Such is the case of sinners before a righteous God (Rom 3:1.
Grace is simple. Grace must have these three elements or it is no longer grace.
The greatest example of grace in human history is found in the preaching of the cross, which is the gospel of the grace of God.
By Christ’s death, shed blood, burial, and resurrection, he performed all that you could not. What’s more is that he did it all for your salvation, your eternal benefit.
This precious gift is offered freely without condition to every ungodly sinner in the world who doesn’t deserve it, if you believe in Him (Rom 3:23-26; Rom 4:5).
Salvation is by grace through faith (Eph 2:8-9). This means salvation today is to the benefit of all the undeserving men who do not do enough good works, which includes both you and I, if you believe.
