Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: [Colossians 1:26]
This scripture issues out from the last statement in verse twenty five which says fulfilling the Word of God “…even the mystery…” Selah.
Our spiritual union with God in the firstborn is a mystery. It was a divine agenda hidden for many generations but has now been unveiled in this dispensation of grace. It has been undraped…made open for all to see. Scripture calls it the mystery made open now, for all to see the desired intent; that unto the principalities and powers in the heavenly places may be known (I.e. that these powers come to know) the wisdom of God accomplished (made resplendent) in the church (the Body joined in oneness with the Head – Jesus Christ). Ephesians 3:9-11
This mystery of our fellowship with Divinity in Christ is made manifest in His saints. We are displayed for all to see…we are the city set on a hill for the entire cosmos to see and come to apprehend the revelation of the new man- the Lord Jesus Christ!
Today this light has been “…made manifest to His saints…” We know who we are! We have awakened to the mystery of our union with the Firstborn. We are His Body; the tangible expression of all His divine attributes and glory. Selah
Would we dare walk in the light of this sublime truth?!
