What Is Mystery?

Robert Ogema

What's mystery?
Part 1:
1. Being saved on the merits of Christ's shed blood is a mystery.
On what ground am I making such claim? If you have an objection to this claim. Let me ask you question also: Is there any hind in the OT which is supposing that Christ would die for the Gentiles?

Unless you spiritualize scriptures, you can never find such an idea either in narrative, poetical or prophetic books.
According to prophet Jeremiah writings, Christ was to die and initiate the new covenant with the house of Jacob and not with Gentiles.

Now, maybe you're asking yourself again; where is the place of Gentiles if that is the case. Well, this is the very reason why we should appreciate this salvation that comes by grace through faith.
Nowhere in the OT was the Gentiles going to be saved on the merits of Christ's shed blood. According to previous prophet writing, Gentiles salvation was to come through the converted nation Israel.

But again, what went wrong with the nation Israel? Apostle Paul says, they weren't more good than Gentiles, Romans 11. Their unbelief was even worse to a point of rejecting Christ by crucifying Him.

Salvation through shed blood is a mystery which was known only by God Himself. Ephesians 3: 9.

This truth is a complete mystery Which should cause us as believers in the present dispensation to rejoice and glorify God for His wonderful plan that He had for us.

To be continued.......
