Somehow the very word “mystery” seems to shut the door of love in our faces instead of opening portals for it. The word “mystery” looms large and dark and shadowy. It seems to defy understanding. None but the wisest may even attempt the solution to a “mystery”! Not so with the mysteries in God’s Holy Word. They are simply secrets. Once they were hidden and could not be known. And yet, after God revealed them, they were easily understood by all who had ears to hear.

When the apostle Paul was held captive in Rome, his burning desire was to blaze abroad the Secret. No longer could he go among the ecclesias to impart God’s glorious revelation, so in Ephesians 6:19 he asked his readers to pray for him that he might open his mouth with boldness “to make known the secret of the evangel.” (An excursus concerning the Greek terms aiõn [eon] and aiõnios [eonian] is included.)
