  • Yes, here are some scriptures. Romans 16: 25-27 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery which has been kept secret for long ages past,
    26but now is manifested, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the eternal God, has been made known to all the nations, leading to obedience of faith;27to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be the glory forever. Amen. NASB
    Mark 4:10-12 As soon as He was alone, His followers, along with the twelve, began asking Him about the parables.
    11And He was saying to them, "To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but those who are outside get everything in parables, 12so that WHILE SEEING, THEY MAY SEE AND NOT PERCEIVE, AND WHILE HEARING, THEY MAY HEAR AND NOT UNDERSTAND, OTHERWISE THEY MIGHT RETURN AND BE FORGIVEN." NASB

  • To me' A mystery of faith' is a whitewash way of a minister or priest of saying' I dont know the answer but you better believe it'.

  • Yes it is Gods intention for us to know all as in Dan 12 v 9 and 10 says”( 9 And he went on to say: “Go, Daniel, because the words are made secret and sealed up until the time of [the] end. 10 Many will cleanse themselves and whiten themselves and will be refined. And the wicked ones will certainly act wickedly, and no wicked ones at all will understand; but the ones having insight will understand.)NWT

  • There is no possible way for us to know everything! Our brains can not possibly fathom the ways or dimensions of God! Try contemplating eternity? We will never be able to understand everything until God reveals it to us upon arriving in heaven.
