“Without any doubt, the mystery of our religion is great: He was revealed in Flesh, vindicated in spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among Gentiles, believed in throughout the world, taken up in glory.” 1Timothy 3:16
Honestly, there is absolutely no doubt that Christianity is a mystery. The life of Jesus Christ while on earth was filled with so much mysteries to such that many people must have wondered a lot, asking among themselves questions like ‘who is this man? How is he able to heal this person or change the situation? Where is he from?’
These questions, I bet are so many and up till today, many people still marvel at Jesus Christ and His ministry. This is normal and great to know because no matter how they try to reveal the work of God, they will merely find the surface.
This is true because God’s ways are full of wonders, of mysteries that no man can truly understand. And this is the best as it shows how different we all as human are from God. Yes, we have God’s image and His power within us and that is the Holy Spirit BUT we must also not forget that we are mere mortal.
To God be all the glories for many are His wonders and mysteries that no man can be able to explain!
Look at the above verse of Timothy; he was referring to God coming to us in the image of His son, Jesus Christ. In the verse, Timothy made us to understand how God revealed Himself in
Flesh by being born unto this world, yet He (God) lives in the spirit, showing His uniqueness, and His sovereignty.
The angels proclaimed God’s present in our midst when Jesus came out of the water after being baptised by John the Baptist, and everybody around saw the glory of God, announcing His presence. By thousands of miracles done while Jesus Christ lives on earth, many Gentiles came to know God, to believe in His existence. Lots and lots of sicknesses were healed, the dead rose to live, the demonic captives were released under God’s command!
And finally, Christ died once and for all, for all of us, BUT he didn’t end it there! On the third day, He ROSE from the dead thereby DEFEATING death! Isn’t that amazing to learn!
To crown it all, Jesus Christ is seen by many of His disciples after His resurrection before He ascended unto Heaven, taken up in Glory!
So great to learn of God’s love for mankind! So many a blessings for all to know that God is indeed the; I AM THAT I AM!
Won’t you stand this moment to reflect and praise God for many are His love as well as His unfailing mysteries!
