Interesting fact: When the word true is used as an adjective, it confirms the presence of both that which is true and that which is false. For example, a true God (2 Chronicles 15:3) confirms the reality of false gods. True laws (Nehemiah 9:13) indicate the existence of false laws. A true witness is contrasted to that of a deceitful witness (Proverbs 14:25). True riches (Luke 16:11) suggest the availability of false riches. The Devil, being the great counterfeiter that he is, will make that which is false as close as he can to that which is true.
Bible study tip: A mystery in the Bible can refer to that which was not previously known (Ephesians 3:4-5, 9) or that which is beyond man’s comprehension (1 Corinthians 2:7-10). The New Testament includes both kingdom mysteries and church age mysteries. The student should first establish the intended period of time to which the mystery applies and then he can determine the nature and purpose of the mystery.
