The Revelation of the Mysteries of God

"The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints" (Colossians 1:26).

God is eternal. He has no beginning and He has no end. For countless eons of time God existed without there being a universe. Before the galaxies existed, there was God. Everything that we see had a beginning. There was a day that God spoke and all that we know appeared. However, before the Word proceeded from His mouth, the cosmos was non-existent.

"By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast" (Psalm 33:6,9).

At the writing of this article, science tells us that our known universe is 94 billion light years in radius. As man’s ability increases, science is discovering there is no end to space. Although man is coming to this knowledge, he is unable to comprehend the limitlessness of the knowledge he has attained.

Science has never been able to disprove the existence of God, nor has it been able to disprove His Holy Scriptures. While some ridicule and some proclaim their lack of belief in a Supreme Being, the truth is that it only takes a few moments of observation to know all that exists is not some type of cosmic accident. There must be a Supreme Intelligence that formed and created our world.

The reality is this. It takes more faith to believe that the earth and the daily lives of mankind somehow just mystically evolved from space dust, than the faith required to believe in intelligent design.

When God inspired men to write the ancient Scriptures, He revealed Himself, His purpose, and His plan for mankind. The prophet Daniel was told to shut up the words and seal up the book until the time of the end. Then he was told that one of the signs of the end times would be that many would run to and fro and that knowledge would increase (Daniel 12:4).

The last century has shown the greatest increase in travel and knowledge in all of the history of mankind. In the 6,000 years that man has been on the earth from Adam until the 1900s, man traveled at the speed of the fastest animal he could find. But within the last century, man has gone from traveling 100 miles in a day to thousands of miles per hour traveling through space.

Knowledge is being accumulated through observatories and science labs at such a high rate, it has been estimated that at the writing of this book it would take over twenty years for all of the data that has been collected to be reviewed.

Truly the words in the ancient writings of Daniel are true. The end times will be defined as rapid travel and increase of knowledge. We are in these times now and according to Scripture, the knowledge hidden from the ages is to be revealed to the people of God (Colossians 1:26).
