This secret was hidden throughout the ages and generations but has now been revealed to his saints.
The Bible states clearly that the church possesses privileged information–the mystery or secret wisdom of God–which the world doesn’t know. Why then do we behave as if we are looking up to the world? We shouldn’t. Our confusion, compromise and corruption rob us of our right to influence the world for Christ. Heaven help us all! (See also Col. 1:27-29).
