Minister of World Affairs - Lord Jesus Christ - Ephesians 1:9,10

For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God - 1 Peter 3:18

Today's Scripture
Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him
Ephesians 1:9,10


In the New Testament the word 'mystery' is used differently to the way it is used today. Today we mean something that has to be solved, we need to work it out and we need an answer. In the days of the Bible it meant that problem had been solved, the secret was out. If you knew what the mystery was you were 'in', initiated and part of a select group. The word is used like this in Ephesians 3:7 - 'which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets'. It was once a secret but now it's out in the open.

God's will is out in the open. One aspect of his will is to bring to completion every strand of world affairs and events. The Lord Jesus will be managing the whole process and everything will be under his authority.

The world was created by the Lord Jesus and for His pleasure. Sin and evil came in, brought death, and distanced us from God. 

God sent His Son, Jesus, in person 'not to condemn the world' but that through him we might be saved (John 3:17). 

The Lord Jesus is acting as Saviour today, when he comes again he will come in the capacity of Judge (Acts 17:31) and executor of the all purposes of God.

Will you be ready?
