The apostle Paul was a member of this inner circle of
Believers who was initiated in the esoteric. Now through the scripture, he
teaches this truth to Godís Election. Our brother Paul was one of the most
gifted teachers sent by God in this earth age. He taught our Fatherís word
on different levels of understanding and you received his teaching on your
level of knowledge of Godís Word. Many Christians like to quote the
scripture below on the elementary level, and miss out on the deeper level of
truth that is taught to those who are initiated into the mysteries of Godís
Philippians 4:12-13-I know both how to be abased, and I
know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed
both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can
do all things through Christ Which strengthened me.
The word Ďinstructedí in Greek means, "from the
base of #3466; to initiate, by implication, to teach." (Strongís #3453)
The #3466 comes from the Greek word Ďmysteryí
in The Strongís Exhaustive Concordance. It means, "to shut the mouth;

Here, Paul proclaimed that he could do all things through
Christ Which strengthened him. He was able to proclaim his strength in
Christ with confidence because he knew that he was initiated into the
mystery of Satanís religious deception designed to deceive them who love not
the truth. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-12). I thank our Father for His Word.
His Word always shines light on lies and false teachings. I pray that the
lightning flash of Satanís deception does not blind you from the truth so
that you, as a servant of God, will have eyes to see and ears to hear the
thundering voice of God proclaiming the mystery of the kingdom of heaven. I
thank you for studying with Men As Trees Teaching Ministry and encourage you
