GRACE AMBASSADORS

Why Haven’t I Heard This Before?

By Justin Johnson

So many people have not heard of the dispensation of the grace of God or the revelation of the mystery because it has been hid from them. Either they have not discovered this precious and important gem from the Scriptures, or they have been deceived by so-called ‘ministers of righteousness’.

Many readers of the Scripture spend an abundant amount of time in the Old Testament books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. In those needful books of the Bible we learn about a salvation for the house of David, the Jews, which was prophesied about since the world began:

“And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; 70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:” – Luke 1:69

However, more often than not, students ignore the important books that contain the further revelation of the mystery of Christ. Paul’s epistles make clear that the salvation by grace through faith which he had received from Christ was NOT prophesied but hid since the world began:

“And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:” – Ephesians 3:9

“Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:” – Colossians 1:26

Many people have become what Paul called ‘ignorant brethren’ not understanding the mystery that Paul spoke about in his epistles.

The second and more dangerous reason that it has been hid from people is that Satan has currently put aside his pitchfork and put upon himself a guise as an angel of light.

“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.“ – 2 Corinthians 11:14-15

Verse 15 describes that Satan has ministers who are transformed into ministers of righteousness. Paul says in Titus 1:9-11 that these vain talkers and deceivers preaching for filthy lucre who subvert whole houses.

It is a truth that there is a Satanic policy of evil to hide the glorious gospel of grace from people today. This deception has entered, knowingly or unknowingly, into churches all across the world that show ignorance of how to preach Christ according to the revelation of the mystery instead of according to the Old Testament.

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” – 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

If you have not heard of the dispensation of the grace of God or the gospel of Christ then perhaps you have been deceived into believing a lie about God’s word.

Learn now about how you are saved by grace through faith, not of works, and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery.
