Surely there was someone at sometime that knew what Christ told Paul.
Not according to what it says in Colossians 1:26.
“Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints”
‘Ages‘ is a word that refers to periods of time. (A dispensation is not a period of time [Col 1:25].)
‘Generations‘ is a word that refers to all the people in time.
Apparently, the mystery given to Paul was hidden from all time [ages] and all people [generations] since the world began (Col 1:26).
When men fail to see that Moses, David, Isaiah, and Peter did not know what was given by Christ to Paul, then confusion ensues by attributing to those godly men what they did not know.
Much of the confusion, denominational division, and Bible contradictions in Christianity result from a failure to see what was hid.
This is why the greatest commission God gives the church is through Paul to “make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God (Eph 3:9).
For His glory,
Justin “Eph 3:9″ Johnson
