The epistle to the Ephesians unfolds the truth of “the Mystery,” which is a secret that God had kept hid in Himself through the ages of time, but has now made known through special revelations given to the Apostle Paul (Ephesians 3:4-5, 9; Colossians 1:26; Romans 16:25).

The Mystery discloses God’s great purpose to glorify His Son in two spheres—in heaven and on earth—in the world to come (the Millennium), through a specially formed vessel of testimony, the Church, which is Christ’s body and bride.

The Mystery is not Christ in His holy and glorious Person, nor is it His life of perfection as He walked in this world, nor is it His death and resurrection, and His coming again to reign over this world. These things were not a secret, but were spoken of in the Old Testament, and known to those who were familiar with those Scriptures. The Old Testament foretells of a Jewish Messiah reigning over the earth with Israel and the Gentile nations rejoicing under Him.

But the Mystery reveals something more. When Christ will reign, He will have a complement at His side (the Church), which is a special vessel of testimony formed by God for the purpose of enhancing the glory of Christ in that coming day of display. Moreover, the mystery reveals that Christ will not only reign over Israel and the Gentile nations on the earth, but that the whole universe—all things in heaven and earth—will be under the administration of Him and His bride.
