The End Is Not Yet

January 6, 2012

And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, Who created all things by Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:9).

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men (Titus 2:11).

Here in both places, the term is universal, all men; all men must see what is the fellowship of the mystery …

If you say, but we see not yet all men brought to the knowledge of the mystery. I answer as in another case, “the end is not yet.” … I shall answer this exception in the words of the author of Hebrews in a like case,

But now we see not yet all things put under Him. But we see Jesus, Who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man (Hebrews 2:8-9).
