Isaiah: 22. 20. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah: 21. And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. 22. And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. 23. And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house. 24. And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons. 25. In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the LORD hath spoken it.
What does that mean GT, could you explain it to me.
Didn't you say the new covenant was mysteries revealed? Why then are we referencing the OT?
Just wondering and trying to stay on topic
You don't understand that the mysteries were revealed in the New Testament?
The mystery is of Christ being revealed to all.
The Old Testament spoke of the gospel to come, when ALL would be saved by faith. Galatians 3:8.
This was all a mystery of Christ, now revealed by the apostles.
Ephesians 1:9 when He made known to us the secret of His will. And this is in harmony with God's merciful purpose
Ephesians 1:10 for the government of the world when the times are ripe for it--the purpose which He has cherished in His own mind of restoring the whole creation to find its one Head in Christ; yes, things in Heaven and things on earth, to find their one Head in Him.
Ephesians 6:19 Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
Romans 16:25 Now to him who is able to establish you by my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past,
Ephesians 3:3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly.
Ephesians 3:4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ,
Ephesians 3:9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.
Colossians 4:3 And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.
