Ephesians 3, Part 12

The Mystery of Christ Is Being Revealed NOW

By Tammy Lacock

”How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words; Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ,) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit.” (Eph. 3:3-5, KJV)

In Ephesians 3, Part 12, Warren Litzman emphasizes verse 5 by noting that the “mystery of Christ” IN the believer has not been revealed in any other time and to any other person in the Bible other than Paul in this current dispensation of grace. The time is NOW! The closest this mystery came to be revealed is when Christ, Himself, said to Nicodemus that one must be “born-again” to know the things of the Kingdom of Heaven. However, Nicodemus was confused and didn’t understand. After His death, burial and resurrection, Christ raised up only Paul to bring forth this truth that anyone who believes, by grace, is saved and Christ NOW lives IN them. They are born-again. Their old sin nature is replaced with the God-seed of Christ, leaving no separation between the believer and Christ. With Christ as our new life, we stand before God as his adopted children. That’s salvation! The mystery is revealed!

The purpose of Paul’s epistles is that we may learn and come to an understanding of his knowledge NOW, that we too might have the revelation of the “mystery of Christ” IN us. 

Paul was not just an ordinary guy! He was an extremely learned and respected Jewish Rabbi who was struck blind on his way to Damascus to persecute believers. Christ spoke to him directly and Paul was changed forever. He made it clear that we are not saved by obedience to law, as he so vehemently enforced in his old life, but that in this very day we are saved by God’s grace. He makes it very clear in all of his epistles, that by God’s grace, we need only believe in Christ as our Saviour to be born again, “new creations” with Christ as our new life. 

He states is ever so perfectly in Galatians 2:20:

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth IN me: and the life which I NOW live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” 

Right here, right NOW! If you believe, Christ lives in you! It’s time to grow up in Him and spread this Final Gospel to the whole world!

About the Podcast

Loving the Christ-life!
Warren Litzman teaches life in Christ, the Christ-life, the gospel of grace taught by Apostle Paul..
Warren Litzman teaches the Christ-life, the liberating life available when the born-again believer realizes the Spirit of Christ living within is his/her only righteousness and only life. This gospel of grace taught by Paul frees us from sin and law, shifting our focus from self to Christ, relieving us from stressing over perfecting self by works and the guilt and condemnation that follows our inevitable failure at self-righteousness. It leads us into a much more personal, intimate relationship with our heavenly Father as born-again children of God, joint-heirs with Christ.
