#132 Seven Things that Make Up the Mystery of Godliness
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number one-hundred and thirty-two of this series, Seven Things that Make Up the Mystery of Godliness.
Paul uses the word “mystery”, although Paul uses the word differently than we do today. Paul is not talking about something unsolved, Paul is talking about a divine secret that was not revealed until the New Testament. This mystery is described in 1 Timothy 3.16 as the foundation of the New Testament.
Seven Things that Make Up the Mystery of Godliness:
- Christ is great indeed.
- Christ was manifested in the flesh.
- Christ was vindicated by the Holy Spirit.
- Christ was seen by angels.
- Christ was proclaimed among the nations.
- Christ was believed on by many in the world.
- Christ was taken up in Glory.
Yes, great indeed and the possession of every Christian. God came in the flesh as Jesus Christ to rescue all of mankind. Some will want to be rescued and others will not because they love the world and its worldly pleasures. After writing “great indeed”, Paul writes “we confess”. Have you confessed that you want to be rescued? If not, do so today and I will see you in heaven.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
1 Ti 3:16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.
