The Unfolding of The Divine Drama

Despite the divisions and confusion among the so-called churches of God: the back stabbings and jockeying for positions by the ruling hirelings, the plan of God is unfolding in accordance with God’s eternal purpose (Eph.3:11).  The divine plan, which was purposed in Christ Jesus, is the greatest drama ever conceived.  It was conceived, purposed and written in eternity.  It was then implemented in time by the creation of the worlds, to bring about its fulfillment.  The divine plan is, God is creating children in his own image to share his eternal glory (Eph.1:5).  The plan was hidden in God (Eph.3:9) until Christ came into the world, with God’s final revelation to his elect (Heb. 1:1-2).

Of course, Christ died for the redemption of God’s elect, that is, the children of God, and to share the sufferings of “the vessel of wrath”(Romans 9:22).  Three days after his death, he rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.  He was then qualified to take the book, which was sealed with seven seals, and revealed the mystery of the divine drama(Rev.5:5).  The revelation was then made know unto his Apostles and prophets(Eph.3:5), but primarily to the Chosen Vessel.  Note the question posed by the Chosen Vessel thus: “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory…?”(Col.1:27)  And note the answer, “Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ”(Eph.3:8).

Note the words of him, to whom the keys of the kingdom were given: "Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently...searching what manner of time:" the prophets knew that in the fullness of time God would reveal the mystery, but they didn't know when. The narrative continues: "the spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testify before-hand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should fallow."  Then Peter asked:  "On to whom it was revealed...not unto themselves, but unto us."(1Pet.1:10-13).  The "us" are the Apostles and prophets of the New Testament Church.  Whom Jesus told: "Blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears for they hear. For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things that you see, and have not seen them...(Matt.13:16-17).  It was not even revealed to the angels in heaven.  Though now, through the church, the angels are able to understand what God is doing on the earth(Eph.3:10). 

These sublime mysteries, that underpinned to divine drama, were not revealed to the hirelings that were members of The Worldwide Church of God, who were and are completely motivated by pride and money.  These awful men, and that is to put it mildly, are completely ignorant of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven.
