You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.

Colossians 1:27



27 To whom [hos] God [theos] would [thelo] make known [gnorizo] what [tis] is the riches [ploutos] of the glory [doxa] of this [toutou] mystery [musterion] among [en] the Gentiles; [ethnos] which [hos] is [esti] Christ [Christos] in [en] you, [humin] the hope [elpis] of glory: [doxa] KJV-Interlinear



27 to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. NASB



To will, means to be motivated, to determine, to resolve, to force, to exercise self control, sovereign.And that is exactly what God possesses mastery of, in all of eternity, both future and past.


In every detail, no matter how small or great, God is the sovereign authority and power to determine what is or is not going to occur at any given moment in time.


Rom 9:18

18 So then He has mercy [blessing, discernment] on whom He desires, and He hardens [blindness, discipline] whom He desires. NASB


Jesus Christ controls history.He causes life and He removes it from this earth.And, He does it in accordance with the Fathers divine plan (the Divine Decrees or the master blue prints of history), without hesitation, or deviation of any kind, from the original.


He willed for the life of Abraham to occur in his day.God knew the decisions that Abraham would make. He willed for the nation of Israel to occur in their time. He foresaw their decision to veer away from the truth of the scriptures, and thus forfeit their opportunity to bring the scriptures to the world.


The dispensation of Israel was interrupted in order to allow the gentile nations to take up the lead in promoting the gospel and doctrine to the world, and thus the dispensation of the Church Age was decreed in eternity past.


Kept hidden throughout all of the ages, and why?Because there was going to be a time in history when empires would rule, always warned through active prophecy, and then there was going to be a time in history when doctrine in the written form alone would be used to guide history, through the dark ages, to the enlightened ages, to the age of technology.


Christ in you, is the key to history, and to the life of each individual.Christ is the living person.Christ is also the written word.Christ in you, is both the person of Jesus Christ as God, indwelling each and every believer, as well as doctrine indwelling each individual person who takes upon themselves to learn its secrets.


With each and every reading of the scriptures, with each and every moment of contemplation of the scriptures, new secrets are revealed.


I have often said that reading the Bible alone will do nothing for you. Satan can read the scriptures, and in fact he knows them all by heart, but they do nothing for him.


We read all of the In the beginnings..., all of the begats, all of the baby Jesus stories and they teach us what? Nothing. That is, as far as the academics of their information goes.


But, and this is a big but (don t look behind you).If you have believed in Christ, and are therefore saved, and if you maintain your spiritual status in fellowship, and read the Bible, or are taught from some authoritative source of scripture, then, and I repeat, then, there comes into play in your life a masterful secret, which the world cannot ever discover. And that secret is the content, the power, the revelation that is inside the scriptures, ready to burst forth within your soul.


You have seen Sci-fi movies where the aliens send a signal to earth, and someone discovers a hidden code within that signal, and then they decode it and discover whatever message is inside, and so forth.


Where do you think those writers of movies got their idea?From doctrine.


God has had a hidden code inside doctrine forever, but that code is not in letters or numbers or sequences in the Bible, it is in the revelation which is supernatural, and revealed by the Holy Spirit, when doctrine channels through your human spirit, and then into your soul.


Gods code is spiritual, not an academic algorithm.


You can explain something that is clear as day to yourself, but an unbeliever or an out of fellowship believer just cannot figure it out. And the reason they cannot figure it out is because they lack the code breaker or translator, if you will, which is the Holy Spirit in control of the soul of the believer in fellowship.


Why do celebrities, successful people, wealthy people, people of society and prominence seem to make screwball decisions, and yet they can be successful in the world? Because they may have book smarts, street smarts driven by their sin natures, which aid them in the jungle activities of life, but they lack the spiritual attributes, which allow them to see the real secrets of life.
