Rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15)
Prophecy and Mystery
Read the Bible and know that it means exactly what it says.
Compare verse with verse in order to understand it.
Rightly divide, that is, to recognize the things in scripture that God has done in
different times and places and always remember the distinctions of the prophetic program
(God's dealings with the nation of Israel) and the Mystery program (God's dealings with
the Body of Christ).
