I was to reveal the hidden mystery (Eph. 3:9)

“I was

To make

Everyone see

What is the plan

Of the hidden mystery

For ages

In God,

Who created all things.”

καὶ φωτίσαι τίς ἡ οἰκονομία τοῦ μυστηρίου τοῦ ἀποκεκρυμμένου ἀπὸ τῶν αἰώνων ἐν τῷ Θεῷ τῷ τὰ πάντα κτίσαντι,

Paul said, “I was to make everyone see (καὶ φωτίσαι) what is the plan (τίς ἡ οἰκονομία) of the hidden mystery (τοῦ μυστηρίου τοῦ ἀποκεκρυμμένου) for ages (ἀπὸ τῶν αἰώνων) in God (ἐν τῷ Θεῷ), who created all things (τῷ τὰ πάντα κτίσαντι).”  Paul explained that his role was to enlighten or help others see the hidden mysterious plan of God that had been concealed for centuries.  God created all things, including this hidden mysterious plan in eternity.  Paul was going to reveal to others this plan of God for them.  Have you ever tried to understand God’s hidden mysteries?
