Colossians 1:28 by Robert Dean
Continuing our review of spiritual gifts, we are reminded that two of these gifts (apostle and prophet) ceased around 95 to 100 A.D. Yet it was primarily through Paul's gift as Apostle that God revealed the Mystery Doctrine. Emphasis is placed on a congregation reaching spiritual maturity, but how is that measured? We learn the steps: understanding, knowledge, and finally wisdom, which is a skillful application of the knowledge we've acquired, which begins and is based upon understanding.
The Apostle Paul refers to "the riches of Christ." How do we attain it, and how does it relate to the Mystery of God?
