THE MYSTERIES OF GOD
-1ST Corinthians 4:1,2 states, … Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ,
and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful …
According to Ray Prinzing:
-"The word "mystery" also bears examination, for it comes from the Greek word "musterion", meaning: what is
known only to the initiated, from a derivative of "muo," to shut the mouth. Through the idea of silence imposed by initiation,
it comes to refer to a secret, or mystery. From the noun "mystery" comes the adjective "mystic" in reference to one who has
been initiated into those secrets. We also have the adjective "mystical" as in reference to the MYSTICAL BODY OF CHRIST.
This is defined as: Having a spiritual meaning, reality, neither apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intelligence (of
the carnal mind). But it refers to an individual's direct communion with God through contemplation, vision, an inner light,
giving spiritual insight." ( Whispers Of The Mysteries, Ray Prinzing )
-We are to see ourselves as stewards of the mysteries of God. The word "steward" means: a person who manages
the domestic affairs of a family. We must first come to the understanding that God is a mystery to the carnal mind. The word
"mystery" is also referred to as a “sacred secret”. Wow! How awesome is that! God is a sacred secret, not known,
understood, or perceived by human intellect. The mysteries of God must be “REVEALED” to a person by the Spirit
of God. The revelation of the Spirit then enables us to become a steward ( manager ) of His mysteries, raising us up to be
a faithful manager of these mysteries. WHAT A CALLING! WHAT AN AWESOME RESPONSIBILITY! WHAT AN EXCITING JOURNEY!
-God’s mysteries remain LOCKED to the spirit of pride, carnality, and human intellect. We must humble
ourselves, asking the Father to reveal His mysteries to us. The goal is to avoid a lifetime of ever learning and never coming
to the knowledge of the truth. We have not because we ask not. SO ASK, SEEK, AND KNOCK! It is our Father’s good pleasure
to give us of the mysteries of His Kingdom.
-Over the next several days we will take a look into some of the wonderful mysteries of our Father’s Kingdom.
We should be filled with awe that God would entrust HIS MAGNIFICENT MYSTERIES to us, asking us to be faithful stewards over
-SHOW US YOUR MYSTERIES O GOD!-
