JND Notes ande Jottings. Comment on Rev. 12:10, the beginning of the 3 1/2 yrs.

Treasure hid in the field. The merchant seeking beautiful pearls. Many different meanings and applications. The treasure, could it be like the field in Jeremiah, Jer 32:6-15, and the pearl the opening up of the mystery Rom 16:25,26?

Romans 16:25,26

The mystery kept in silence in the O.T. but now made manifest. See footnote "e" in J.N.D. bible.

Jeremiah 32:6-15

Jeremiah buys the field and puts the purchase sealed and open in an earthen vessel in view of the promises of restoration in the coming day.

Ephesians 5:25,26

Christ delivering himself up for the church, like securing the pearl of great value.

2 Timothy 1:12

Keep for that day the deposit I have entrusted to him.

Present Day of Grace

Paul's gospel presented the mystery. This was silent in the O.T. scriptures, and fits between the 69th and 70th week of Daniel 9:24-27 (see also chart of Daniel 9). When Rom.16:26 is added of the O.T. scriptures and the mystery in v25 it all opens up.

Daniel 9:24-27

Matthew 13:36-50

These parables Christ expounded privately to his disciples and show a change,as Christ looks ahead past the boundaries of Isreal.

Christ opened up the scriptures in the O.T.concerning himself and no doubt prepared the ground for the truth of the mystery, which Paul developed.

Ephesians 3:3-6

2 Peter 1:20,21

God's wisdom revealed to us by His Spirit. Looks to Jesus Christ and Him crucified and the present day of grace. Possibly the mystery. See Isaiah 64:4 and Rom 16:25.

1 Corinthians 2:9 (P)
