Can you keep a secret? If you can’t, stop reading right now. But if you can, I’ll share a couple of secrets with you. You good to go? OK, here they are…
…well…I’m not really telling secrets of my own today. But I am gonna share a couple of secrets with you that you can easily find in the Bible. These are mysteries of God. One of the mysteries He kept for 4,000 years and then revealed it to a man named Saul. The other mystery, or secret, hasn’t been revealed yet. But many Christians think it will be soon.
The first mystery is also known as “The Dispensation of the Mystery”. And you might also recognize it as the “Gospel given to the Gentiles”. Maybe the best description of all is “Amazing Grace“. God kept this mystery “since the world began”, and He found a man He knew would give his all to spread the message to the unbelieving Gentiles. It was (and is) a message of the sacrificial gift of salvation to eternal life. It’s freely offered to you, if you’re willing to humble yourself and say you trust in Jesus to save you.
Yeah, I know it sounds like the same ol’ “Bible-thumping-holy-roller” nonsense to most people. But to those who thirst and hunger for truth, the Living Water and the Bread of Life are more valuable than oxygen. And that leads me to the second secret.
Jesus promised He’d come back some day. He also said no one knows when that will happen…not even Him. He said “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father“. Yep, God can keep a secret. We mere mortals have a hard time with 5 minutes, but He can wait for millennia until just the right time.
But here’s a suggestion…since none of us know when just that right time is…it’s a good idea to be prepared. All you need to do, like I’ve mentioned many times here in my articles, is humble yourself and ask for forgiveness. You’ll receive a gift you could never in a million years pay for yourself. And when you do…don’t keep it a secret.
