Now We Know

  There are a number of passages that tell us that God determined the plan of salvation even before the beginning. The story of the Bible is the record of the gradual unfolding of the wisdom of God in saving man. Starting all the way back in Eden until the coronation of Christ the message was somewhat a mystery.

  A mystery is not something that cannot be known but is something that is unknown. For a long time God's scheme of redemption was a mystery; that is, not fully revealed. Once revealed it is no longer a mystery.

  Paul wrote of this mystery, "But now is made manifest and by the scriptures of the prophets..." (Romans 16: 26.). With God's revelation, the Bible, now we not only can know His will but understand it (Ephesians 3: 1- 6). Of course, it takes study.
