The Seven Mysteries - All Seven Mysteries - video by Dr Peter Ruckman
1 Corinthians 4:1–2
“Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.”
1. God Manifest in the Flesh
1 Timothy 3:16,
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh....”
One in three, three in one.
God is a tripartite being, having 3 parts in one, as so are we. God the Father is the Soul of God, The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, and Jesus Christ is the body of God:
God manifested in the flesh. In the old testament He appeared as the
Angel of the Lord.
Indeed, this a great mystery.
2. Christ In You
“this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
When we get saved we get two natures
and that is a mystery. That’s “Christ in you, the hope of glory, Jesus Christ is one with our spirit, as he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit, and Jesus Christ
is our Souls new husband
as the old flesh man was killed being crucified and nailed to the cross at the time of the new birth. Our Soul is saved and waiting for
our husband Jesus Christ to call us up hither
and then meet him in the air to consummate our marriage by being transformed into new sinless bodies fashioned unto the image of God's son in His resurrected body.
Then we go up with Jesus (with the dead Christians that rose first) up to the 3rd Heaven for a 7 year feast, while the Kingdom of Death and Hell is back on Earth for the un-saved under
Satan's authority through the anti -Christ.
This is another great mystery of God.
Watch Dr Ruckman teach about "The Holy Spirit", the mystery of Christ in you:
3. Christ and the Church
“This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”
Examine the context:
“For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church.”
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.”
“For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother,
and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”
“Of his flesh, and of his bones”
1 Cor. 6:16
“For two, saith he, shall be one flesh”
4. The Restoration Of Israel
"For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits;
that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob.”
“As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.
For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance”
Jesus Christ's primary ministry was to Israel, secondary to the Gentiles. Paul's primary ministry was to the Gentiles, secondary to Israel. Now, during and at the end of the Church Age,
the Gentiles are "grafted in" by the offer of The Gospel in 1st Cor 15, as God provokes Israel to jealousy by offering Salvation to anyone, not just Israel.
However, the restoration of Israel will occur as
Israel will be "grafted back in" at the end of the 7 year Tribulation when Jesus Christ restores Israel, and he will be sitting on the throne as King of Kings in the Millennium.
5. Mystery, Babylon The Great
"And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH".
“And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”
“golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication,”
“the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.”
6. The Mystery Of Iniquity
2 Thessalonians 2:7
"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work"
2 Thessalonians 2:2–8
“That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed....”
7. The Rapture
For details regarding The Rapture scriptures below, go to our webpage:
1 COR 15:51
"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:
for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption,
and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren,
be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."
21 "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne."
22 "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."
After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither,
and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
II Thes 2:1
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
1 Thes 4:13
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain
unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before
him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
