Ephesians 3:3-4 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
I am focusing in on the word “may” here which in the Greek is dynamai which is by definition of uncertain infinity, able but not with any certainty, capable but without an guarantee.
Paul is addressing the gentiles about one mystery which was withheld from the Jews. How the Jewish believers might take this verse will be different than the Gentiles perspective. Since we are all in Christ now, we should all come to one conclusion about mysteries and the dynamite.
Imagine if you would that we are all standing before a wall of our personal understanding. We each have our own understanding and God is about to blow up this wall to reveal the truth.
What will be your reaction to your understanding being destroyed?
As I look at the wall of my understanding, I see a wide gap. The cornerstone is still in place, good. Other areas seem to be sound and fit. Some of the blocks that are dislodged are still solid, but rested upon blocks that were destroyed. I can rebuild the wall. Let me see what pieces I still have, find order for them and replace those which are destroyed.
I stand before the wall of my understanding and weep bitterly over my loss. How could I have been so foolish, what is wrong with me? I am undone.
There is a wide gap in my wall, I must go and stand in the gap and defend my position.
I stand before the wall of my understanding that has been destroyed. What is it that I can see now that my errors have been removed?
Psalm 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
God only destroys that which He has not made.
