Preaching of Jesus Christ according  to the Mystery.


Romans 16:25   Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,


1.  Israel blind and fallen.  Gentiles are fellowheirs of His promise in Christ. 

Eph 3:6That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:

 Romans 11:11  I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.


Romans 11:25  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.


2.  God’s dealing with man.  We are under grace alone (no law)

Ephesians 3:1-10  (GO GET YOUR BIBLE AND READ IT NOW!!!!!!!!!)
Romans 6:14   For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.


3.  Man’s dealings with God change because of

Colossians 1:26   “the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:” 


     which entails a new relationship with Christ because God now has made

Colossians 1:27   “known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles;  which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:”


4.  Body of Christ instead of Israel.

2 Corinthians 5:17   Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


Colossians 1:18    And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.


5.   God has us on earth as ambassadors.  We are to see souls saved and edify the saints.

2 Corinthians 5:20   Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.


1 Timothy 2:4   Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.


6.   We will meet Jesus in Heavenly Places instead of ruling on earth with the 12 tribes of Israel.

1 Corinthians 15:51   Behold, I shew you a mystery;  We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,          1 Thessalonians   4:13-17
