πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ What Are ‘The Things Which God Hath Prepared’?

β€œBut as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him” (1 Cor. 2:9).

This verse is commonly interpreted to refer to the glories of heaven which none has seen nor heard. Once we get a meaning for a verse in our minds, it is often difficult to dislodge it and consider any other meaning.

However, here Paul wrote about the truths of the Mystery that have been revealed to those who love the Lord in this dispensation of grace. β€œThe things which God hath prepared for them that love Him” were not seen nor heard in the past, and they never β€œentered into the heart of man” because they were β€œhid in God” (Eph. 3:9) and were never before revealed. But Paul writes in the next verse in 1 CorinthiansΒ 6:10: β€œBut God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit.” Now the Mystery has been fully revealed! Now we see and know the things God has prepared for us as members of the Body of Christ through the Holy Spirit via illumination to His Word.

Paul’s point here is not the things in heaven God has prepared for us. Rather, it is that God has fully revealed to us His formerly-hidden wisdom, the Mystery and the dispensation of grace. God has revealed to us our heavenly calling and our blessed hope (Phil.Β 3:20; TitusΒ 2:13) which He β€œhath prepared” and β€œordained before the world unto our glory” (1 Cor. 2:7), and we can see it, know it, and enjoy it right now! source

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. — 1 John 4:11-12
