Why was Paul a prisoner of Rome?
#1
Surely every Christian should understand more about "The Mystery." God wants every Christian to know "The Mystery Cheap Cory Schneider Jersey ," and to make it known to others (Eph. 3:9). You say, "Then it'd not be "The Mystery." Certainly not. Why after over 2,000 years should this divine truth still be mystery so far as ninety-nine per cent of God's people are concerned? Can you answer this question? It is true the devil does not want any one to comprehend or even analyze this divine truth. But is not God's will to be desired by Christians more than Satan's? Does not God's power surpass the demon's power? Satan is powerful. God is almighty. Genuine spiritual Christians realize that God's power surpasses Satan's power.

But let us take an inventory. As we take in the world wide political situation, the distress of nations, with the so called Christian countries on the verge of insolvency and destruction Cheap Kyle Palmieri Jersey , we might wonder that Satan has such power But we believe that Satan understood what he was talking about in Luke 4:6 when he told the Lord Jesus that the kingdoms of the world were under his control. The Lord was right when He called Satan "the prince of this world."

When we consider the millions and countless individuals of the entire world religiously, and see exactly what the devil has done to them, certainly we give a hearty "Amen" to the statement of I John 5:19, "the entire world lieth in [the evil one]." In his tricks to keep sinners from the saving gospel of Christ, Satan is called "the god of the [age]" (II Cor. 4:3 Cheap Drew Stafford Jersey ,4). To execute his goal with those who desire some kind of a so called Christian religion, the devil transforms himself into an angel of light and instructs his servants to feign that they are missionaries of Christ (II Cor. 11:13-15).

Then let us consider exactly what the devil has done with Church members that are actually members of the Body of Christ, God's one and only Church now. Notice God's instructions in Ephesians 4:3-6:

Meditate--"the unity of the Spirit." Where is it found? One baptism, one faith, one hope of your calling. One Body. How many sects and denominations? Several hundred. Just how many bodies? One Body. Note Ephesians 1:20-23:

"Which He wrought in Christ Cheap Adam Henrique Jersey , when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in [the heavenlies]. Far above all principality and power, and might, and dominion, and every name which is named Cheap John Moore Jersey , not only these days, but also in that which is to come: and hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the Head over all things to the Church, which is His Body, the fulness of Him that filleth all in all."

Christ is in the heavenlies.

No matter how loyal Marcus Johansson Jersey , zealous sectarians may defend and maintain for their denominational churches, the student of the Word of God knows that "denominationalism" is totally unscriptural. In Ephesians 3:6 that one Church is called the "Joint-Body" (see the Greek).

2:6 and 1:3). One reason why God desires all men to see "The Mystery" is expressed in Ephesians 3:10,11:

The Mystery then, is divine truth concerning "the heavenlies" and "according to the eternal purpose which God purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord." By seeking the Scriptures we find that this divine message was not in fulfillment of prophecy, but did God predestinates a system that is religious before the basis of the whole world.

notice Ephesians 6:11 Jesper Bratt Jersey ,12:

"Put on the entire armour of God, that ye may have the ability to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world Miles Wood Jersey , against spiritual wickedness in high places [in the heavenlies]."

And note Ephesians 6:19,20:

Why was Paul a prisoner of Rome? Read this in Colossians 4:3,4 and hear his testimony in Ephesians 3:1-3:

"For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles.

Notice God's Word in Ephesians 3:9:

"And to make all men see what is the [dispensation] of the Mystery, which from the start of the world hath been hid in God."

Here we see "the dispensation of the grace of God" along with the dispensation of the Mystery are linked together. This glorious truth was made known by revelation. Do we appreciate what he suffered for us? Let's try to understand the message that he endured and get to the Novel.

While Paul understood that spiritual men were opposed to "The Enigma" and were determined that he should not preach that divine truth Brian Gibbons Jersey , he understood that he was not wrestling against flesh and blood; that his actual adversary was the demon as the ruler of world darkness in the heavenlies.

Paul wrote in II Corinthians 4:3 and 4 that Satan blinded were. by heads But notice his request to get an incredibly specific prayer in Ephesians 1:17,18:

Paul did not need thoughts blinded to "The Mystery." He understood that it needed a special spirit of wisdom and revelation to get that truth that was glorious that was specific.

Yes, the devil succeeded in getting Paul in jail for "The Mystery," bound as an evil doer unto chains. But from his prison cell he wrote: "The Word of God is not bound."

God would like one to understand and also to make known this glorious truth...which should have stopped to be a mystery more than twenty centuries past.
