That their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Human science tries to find the explanation that reveals the mysteries of nature and everything that exists. In multiple scientific theories God is excluded from the interpretation given by man. And although the Bible has by far been the best-selling book in history, there are more people who devalue it every day and prefer to accept dubiously confirmed explanations given by science. The mystery of God and His creation are given in the Bible and are available to all.
Human curiosity has no limit, and humanity has always tried to find a way to know what will happen in the future. To this end, different ways have been used to achieve this goal: fortune tellers, astrologers, pythoness, horoscopes, warlocks, sorcerers, cards, crystal balls, among other things. All these media bring us into contact with the world of darkness and away from the admirable light of God, who has spoken very clearly in His Word about what will happen.
The Bible uses the word prophecy to define what will happen in the future. But the Bible itself warns us that the world of darkness will use the same word prophecy to confound many, including believers. Matthew 24:24 says it quite clearly, For false Christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. We are already living that time, therefore we must be alert and attached to the Word of God not to be deceived.
All those false Christs and false prophets who have been appearing for some time, are preparing the way for the manifestation of the man of sin, which will come along with a false prophet and his master and lord, as Revelation 16:13-14 tells us, And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
In Revelation 16:13-14 we see three persons: the dragon, the beast and the false prophet. Who are they? The dragon, the ancient serpent, is the devil; the beast is the antichrist and the false prophet is the religious figure who will lead the world to worship the beast. The plans of the enemy, who knows beforehand that he has little time left, have already started. Our Heavenly Father has left us in writing in His Holy Word the signs we must observe. But he has also commanded us to be alert all the time because we do not know the day and the hour.
On the Lord’s Day, we will see the consummation of the mystery of God. Scripture is in Revelation 10:5-7, The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his hand to heaven and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer, but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets. God bless you.
