” God in the types of the last dispensation was teaching His children their letters. In this dispensation He is teaching them to put all the letters together, and they find that the letters, arrange them as they will, spell Jesus, and nothing but Jesus! “

Why Is It So?

Australia was better off for the presence of Professor Julius Sumner Miller. His effervescent enthusiasm for knowing the answer was infectious. Julius migrated from the USA and for over twenty years blessed our tv screens with science Q&A. His catch cry was “Why is it so?” and from there he discussed science mysteries.

Imagine how excited the disciples were at the authority that Jesus displayed as He answered the unanswerable questions of all time. He told them that they would know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 13:11).

In Revelation there’s the mystery of the Seven Stars (1:20), the mystery of God (10:07), the mystery of Babylon the Great (17:05) and of the Woman and the Beast (17:07).

Then there’s your mystery. The changing of life from despair to hope in the grace of God — the greatest mystery of all.

Paul said that “we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory” (1 Corinthians 2:7 KJV). This is the “power of God” (2:5) and it is revealed in you!

“Now to Him who is able to establish you according to [the] Gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began… to God, alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.”” (Romans 16:25, 27 NKJV).

The mystery is the power, and the power is in you.

Amen indeed!
