The Revealed Mystery 





I. ALL NATIONS shall be blessed in Abraham and his seed.
[Proof: Gen. 12:3; Gal. 3:8]

II. ABRAHAM and his seed (the Christ) shall possess the Holy Land for ever.
[Proof: Gen. 13:15; Gal. 3:16-19]

III. ABRAHAM having died, must therefore be raised up from the dead, to live for ever, and possess the Holy Land.
[Proof: Luke 13:28; 20:37; Rev. 11:18]

IV. ABRAHAM'S SEED (the Christ) dying, must also rise from the dead to deathlessness; and departing from the earth must return to possess the Holy Land for ever, which likewise necessitates the final expulsion of the Gentiles from that country.
[Proof: Lev. 25:23; Psa. 10:16; 37:29, 32-34; Zech. 2:12; 14:4; Ezek. 45:7-8; 48:21; John 1:11; 14:3; Acts 1:11]

V. Abraham's seed (the Christ) shall be Melchisedeck King of Jerusalem.
[Proof:Gen. 14:18; Psa. 110:4; Heb. 7]

VI. THE HIGH PRIEST and King of Jerusalem shall possess the gate of his enemies, and having triumphed over the kings who held in captivity his brethren and their goods, shall bring forth bread and wine when the passover shall be fulfilled in the kingdom of God, and shall then and there, as priest of the Most High, bless Abraham and his seed, who shall give him tithes of all.
[Proof: Gen. 22:17; 14:17-20; Ezek. 43:7-9; 45:13-16, 21; Luke 13:29; 22:15-16, 18, 30; Rev. 19:12-21; 20:4]

VII. "THE SEED OF ABRAHAM" is not only a singular, but a multitudinous Christ; they that are the Christ's at his coming--and afterwards the twelve tribes of Israel who walk in the steps of his faith; and the many nations joined to the Lord in the day when he dwells in Zion, are all comprehended in this phrase.
[Proof: Gen. 17:5; Psa. 72:11-17; Hosea 1:5, 10; 2:28; Zech. 2:10-11; Rom. 4:12, 18; 8:17; 9:6-8; Gal. 3:16-29; James 2:5]

VIII. THE EVERLASTING POSSESSION of the Holy Land by Abraham, by the Christ, by them that are the Christ's, and by the twelve tribes grafted into their own olive tree again, was covenanted and typically confirmed 430 years before the night of the exodus from Egypt and the promulgation of the Mosaic Law. The commencement of the everlasting possession, of course, was to begin at some time subsequently to the bringing that typically confirmed covenant into force.
[Proof: Gen. 15:21; Rom. 15:8; Heb. 9:15-16; Gal. 3:17]

IX. THE LAW OF MOSES was an additional covenant, imposed upon the twelve Tribes because of transgressions, until the seed of the Christ should come, to whom the promise of the everlasting possession of the Holy Land was made.
[Proof: Gal. 3:19]

X. CIRCUMCISION outward in the flesh was a token or sign of the covenant betwixt GOD and ABRAHAM; and a mark or seal of the righteousness counted to him because of his believing the promise that he should be the father of many nations, which should be blessed in him when as yet, being an old man and his wife past bearing, he had no child. Hence, it was a sign "that all nations should be blessed in him," and a seal of his faith in that Gospel -- circumcised flesh significative of previously circumcised heart and ears in regard to the truth of God. The cutting off of the flesh of faithful Abraham memorialized "the putting off the body of the sins of his flesh." when his faith in the promises of God was counted to him for remission of sins. But multitudes of Israelites and Mohammedans are circumcised who have no faith. This is not true circumcision; for "that is not true circumcision which is outward in the flesh; but circumcision is that of the heart, in spirit and not in letter" of the law. A heart affectionately believing the gospel of the kingdom, or "the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus the Christ" (Acts 8:12), and putting on the Christ by being immersed into him (Gal. 3:27), being thus in the Christ who, like Abraham, had the sign of the covenant in the flesh, and the righteousness thereof in his heart, such an one "is circumcised with the circumcision made without hands in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of the Christ, having been buried with him in the baptism by which also ye are raised up with him through the faith of the energy of God who raised him from among the dead;" -- Therefore the Apostle says to the saints at Philippi, "We are the circumcision, who worship God in spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and put no confidence in the flesh."
[Proof: Gen. 17:1, 11; 18:18; Rom. 4:3, 11, 18-19; Col. 2:11-12]

XI. THE SEED OF ABRAHAM, or the Christ, "the Shepherd and Stone of Israel," was to descend from the tribe of Judah, from which the Sovereignty should not permanently depart, because the Shiloh should come, to whom shall be the gathering of the peoples: and from the God of Jacob. Judah, the mother-tribe of Messiah, and God his Father was the prediction of Jacob. The Son of God and of Judah was also to come of David, and therefore of some female "of his house and lineage."
[Proof: Gen. 49:8, 10, 24; 2 Sam. 7:12-16; Isa. 7:14; Luke 1:26-35; Heb. 1:5]

XII. THE SON OF GOD, and of David, called Messiah in the Hebrew, Christ in the Greek, and Anointed in the English, is to sit upon the throne of David, and to govern the kingdom for "a season and a time," or 1,000 years.
[Proof: Psa. 67:4; 72:11; 89:3-4, 24-29, 34-37; Isa. 9:6-7; 22:22; Dan. 7:12; Rev. 11:15; 20:4]

XIII. THE THRONE AND KINGDOM of David in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, are the throne and kingdom of Yahweh and the king enthroned there, is Yahweh's viceroy over Israel and their tributaries.
[Proof: 1 Chron. 28:5; 29:23; 2 Chron. 9:8; Jer. 3:17; Psa. 2:6]

XIV. YAHWEH'S throne and kingdom, with dominion over all nations throughout all generations, are covenanted or guaranteed to a man of the house of David, styled the Anointed of Yahweh, Yahweh's Fellow, the Lamp of David, and Yahweh's Name.
[Proof: Psa. 2:2; 39:24; 132:11-18; Isa. 30:27; Zech. 13:7]

XV. YAHWEH'S throne and kingdom of Israel were not to exist uninterruptedly in the Holy Land from their foundation to the last generation of mankind; they were to be "overturned," and the power of Israel scattered by their enemies until the times of the Gentile powers shall expire, and he shall come in the name of Yahweh, "whose right they are" by covenant with his fathers, ABRAHAM and DAVID.
[Proof: Psa. 118:22, 26; Dan. 12:8; Ezek. 21:26-27; Matt. 21:42-44; 23:39; Luke 21:24]

XVI. THE ERA introduced by the epochal ending of the times of the Gentiles is "the Regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit upon the throne of his glory"; the restoration of the kingdom again to Israel; the time of the restitution of all things pertaining to Israel; the building again of the tabernacle of David, the giving of the Kingdom of God to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof--and so forth.
[Proof: Amos 9:11; Matt. 19:28; 21:43; Acts 1:6; 3:21; 15:16; 1 Pet. 2:9]

XVII. THE ERA of the restoration of Yahweh's throne and kingdom of Israel in the Holy Land is the beginning of "the Day of Christ," or, "the day of vengeance" upon the enemies of Israel and the Saints; and the "acceptable year of the Lord" for the approved. Gentilism in all its civil and ecclesiastical manifestations will be abolished; and all things Jewish compatible with the sacrificial and sacerdotal attributes of Jesus of Nazareth, restored. From this epoch David shall never want a Son to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel, nor the priests, the Levites, a man before Yahweh, to do sacrifice continually.
[Proof: Jer. 33:14-26]

XVIII. "BECAUSE he hath poured out his soul unto death, therefore, he shall divide the spoil with the mighty" -- hence, David's immortal Son, who is to be king for Yahweh over Israel and the nations, ascends Yahweh's throne in Jerusalem at some time subsequently to his resurrection from the dead -- "God would raise up the Christ to sit upon David's throne."
[Proof: 1 Chron. 17:11; Psa. 2:7; 16:8-11; Isa. 53:10-12; Acts 2:29-31; 13:34]

XIX. THE KINGDOM OF YAHWEH, the kingdom of David, the kingdom of the Christ, the kingdom of Israel, and the kingdom of heaven, are all one and the same kingdom, consisting of the united twelve tribes under David II, as "their prince for ever," established in the Holy Land, which will then be PARADISE IN EDEN.
[Proof: Isa. 2:3; Ezek. 34:22-31; 36:35; 37:21-28]

XX. WHEN the God of Heaven shall set up this kingdom again, the priests and rulers thereof will be as the KING OF THE JEWS himself, deathless and glorious; while the twelve tribes of Israel, the subjects of the kingdom, though blessed in Abraham and his seed, with other peoples, will still have lives terminable in death.
[Proof: Isa. 65:20; Dan. 7:18; 1 Cor. 15:25-26; Rev. 2:7; 3:20; 5:10; 20:6]

XXI. THE MESSIAH was to be the Messenger of the Abrahamic covenant, bearing a message to the children of Israel, therein announcing peace to them through himself, when he should be established "LORD OF ALL" upon the throne of DAVID.
[Proof: Isa. 9:7; Mal. 3:1; Acts 10:36; Gal. 3:15-17; Luke 22:20; Heb. 10:10]

XXII. WHEN he bore God's message of peace to Judah, he came not to bring the peace, but to preach it.
[Proof: Matt. 10:34]

XXIII. THE bringing of the BLESSEDNESS OF ABRAHAM upon Israel and the nations, through the restoration of Yahweh's throne in Jerusalem and the Holy Land; and the promotion of obedient believers taken from among Israel and the Gentiles upon the principle of faith in the things covenanted to Abraham and David, to a share with "the Christ," in the "power, the riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing," of the coming dispensation is the subject matter of the Gospel. Hence the message of peace to Israel is styled "the gospel or glad tidings of the kingdom of God;" "the hope proclaimed in the word of the truth of the Gospel," "the hope of the Gospel" "the hope of the promise made of God to the fathers", "the hope of Israel," and so forth.
[Proof: Matt. 4:23; 24:14; Luke 4:43; 8:1; 9:2-6; Acts 26:6; 28:20; 23:31; Col. 1:5, 23]

XXIV. TO INHERIT the kingdom of God is not to be a mortal subject of it, but to possess the glory, honor, power, riches, immortality, and blessedness of it as a priest and a king thereof.
[Proof: 1 Cor. 6:2; 15:50; 1 Peter 5:4; Rev. 2:10, 26-27; 3:21; 5:9-10; 20:6]

XXV. "IN MESSIAH'S DAY the righteous shall flourish." Hence the kingdom of Yahweh and of His Anointed will be righteousness, peace, and joy; therefore the unrighteous, the fearful, and the unbelieving, cannot inherit it. A man is naturally unholy, and cannot make himself righteous; and as God has concluded all, both Jews and Gentiles, under sin, whose wages is death, they must, without respect of person, be justified, or "made righteous," that grace may reign in them through righteousness unto eternal life in the kingdom of God.
[Proof: Psa. 72:7; 1 Cor. 6:9-10; Eph. 5:6; Gal. 5:22; Rev. 21:8; 22:14-15; Rom. 3:9-10, 19; 6:23; Gal. 3:22, 26-27]

XXVI. JESUS exhorteth those he came to invite to repentance, "to seek first the kingdom of God, and God's righteousness." He placed the kingdom of God first in the sentence, because "the righteousness of God" is only for the justification of those who believe His truth concerning His promised kingdom. Hence, in recording the justification of the Samaritans, it is stated that "they believed the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus the Christ, and were immersed both men and women."
[Proof: Matt. 6:33; Acts 8:12]

XXVII. THE PHRASE "the righteousness of God" is expressive of that system of means whereby sinners who are subjected to it become righteous in heart and state. It is contained in the gospel of the kingdom, and makes that gospel "the power of God for salvation to everyone that believeth." He that does as the Samaritans did, is himself made "the righteousness of God in the Christ," "whom God hath made unto the justified wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption."
[Proof: Rom. 1:15, 17; 1 Cor. 1:30; 2 Cor. 5:21] . (next page)
