Whispering Hope
Exalting the Word of our Heavenly Father



Of the 22 times that the word "mystery" is mentioned in the holy Scriptures, but three are in reference to the devil and/or those under his power.  One of these is the "mystery of iniquity" mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:7, and the other is in reference to the harlot woman or Mother of harlots mentioned in Revelation 17:5,7.

The other times "mystery" is mentioned is in reference to our Father God---His kingdom, His gospel, His character, His church, His eternal purpose, and the mystery of God as manifest in the flesh.

It is the mystery of God as manifest in the flesh which is the "mystery hidden for ages".  As it is written:

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; God was manifest in the flesh..."  1 Timothy 3:16

While it is a veritable impossibility that the finite mind could ever grasp this glorious mystery, yet he can know what this mystery is and experience for himself the riches of the glory of this mystery.  As it is written:

"Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:  To whom God would make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Messiah in you, the hope of glory."  Colossians 1:26,27

Please note:  This mystery is not Messiah in you.  Messiah in you is but the riches of the glory of this mystery; it is not the mystery itself.

The mystery is God manifest in the flesh.  Yahsha Messiah is God, manifest in the flesh, the mystery hidden for ages.

God manifest in the flesh is Yahsha Messiah.

"Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Messiah."  Ephesians 3:4

"For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkenss, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Yahsha Messiah."  2 Corinthians 4:6

"The limited capacity of man cannot define this wonderful mystery---the blending of the two natures, the Divine and the human.  It can never be explained.  Man must wonder and be silent; yet man is privileged to be a partaker of the divine nature, and in this way he can in some degree enter into this mystery."  Bible Commentary, Vol. 7

The wonderful mystery hidden for ages is God manifest in the flesh.  There is but one God---the Father (1 Corinthians 8:6)

Yahsha Messiah is God manifest in the flesh.

Through perverted teachings and misinterpretations of Scripture, men have long held misconceptions of the principles of Heaven, the plan of salvation, and the character of Him who has made man in the divine image of God.  While God has spoken to man through nature, through types and symbols as given in the Word of God, through patriarchs and prophets, it was needful that lessons be given to humanity in the language of humanity.  While the divine Law of ten commandments had been given to Israel and handed down from generation to generation, the Law itself, while being a transcript of the Divine character, has been greatly misunderstood and misapplied.  Thus iniquity abounds as man lives out his own willful desires and the dictates of his own sullied conscience.  As men's distorted conceptions of the Divine character justify their own actions, they give themselves loose rein.  It is written:

"The people that sat in darkness" ... "to them that sat in the region and shadow of death..."  Matthew 4:16

Thus the stage was set for the living Law, Yahsha Messiah, to be presented.  God Himself must speak.  The voice of the Almighty must be heard in His own temple.

Yahsha Messiah is Immanuel---God with us.

There is one God---the Father.  (1 Corinthians 8:6)

While the truth with regard to the mystery of God has been revealed, this truth as revealed in Yahsha Messiah will be received but by few.  One obstacle stands in the way, but one reason keeps man from receiving the truth; that reason is pride.  Traditional teaching secures the minds of many in such a grasp that refuses to let go in order that man may come unto a knowledge of the truth as it is in Yahsha Messiah.

As it is written:

"...no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son and he to whom the Son will reveal him."  Luke 10:21

It is a sad reality that but a few will understand the mystery and simply because they refuse to receive it.

It is a most solemn truth that but little time remains for the mystery hidden for ages to be received into the heart, for it is written:

"In the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished as he hath declared unto his servants the prophets."  Revelation 10:7
