Eph. 3:9-10 And to enlighten all that they may see what the economy of the mystery is, which throughout the ages has been hidden in God, who created all things, in order that now to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenlies the multifarious wisdom of God might be made known through the church.

Eph. 3:9-10 And to enlighten all that they may see what the economy of the mystery is, which throughout the ages has been hidden in God, who created all things, in order that now to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenlies the multifarious wisdom of God might be made known through the church.

In this universe there are two histories: the history of man, the human history, and the history of God, the divine history. We may liken the history of man to the shell of a walnut and the history of God to the kernel within the shell….Unfortunately, however, most readers of the Bible pay attention only to the shell and not to the kernel.

The shell, the history of man, is easily seen. In Daniel 2 this history is signified by a great human image, with the four sections of this image corresponding respectively to the Babylonian Empire, the Medo-Persian Empire, the Grecian Empire, and the Roman Empire….We must have a kind of intrinsic insight in order to see the kernel within the shell, to know the divine history within the human history. (Life-study of Joel, pp. 33-34)
God’s move among men is wrapped up with the course of history. Whether we speak of His becoming flesh through the incarnation or of the spread of the gospel or of the raising up of the church life or of the preparation of the bride, all these aspects of His move require the proper environment, as far as the world situation is concerned. (The World Situation and God’s Move, p. 286, by Witness Lee – order it online here)
