How do we demystify the real meaning of mystic? Many don’t realize how many times the word is written in the bible due to translation confusion in later editions. But Wasnt Peter in a trance when he had the vision on the roof in Acts 10:9-16? Paul’s entire conversion experience was mystical!
Let’s listen to a classic John Crowder, “Jesus Trip” video teaching on the subject…
2 Cor 5:13- If we seem out of our minds, it is between God and us. But if we are in our right minds, it is for your good.
Acts 22: 17 – Later, when I had returned to Jerusalem and was praying at the temple, I fell into a trance
[For my hope is] that their hearts may be encouraged as they are knit together in [unselfish] love, so that they may have all the riches that come from the full assurance of understanding [the joy of salvation], resulting in a true [and more intimate] knowledge of the mystery of God, that is, Christ. (Col 2:2)
…but upholding and fully understanding the mystery [that is, the true doctrine] of the [Christian] faith with a clear conscience [resulting from behavior consistent with spiritual maturity].1 Tim 3:9
And great, we confess, is the mystery [the hidden truth] of godliness:He (Jesus Christ) who was revealed in human flesh,Was justified and vindicated in the Spirit,Seen by angels,Preached among the nations,Believed on in the world,Taken up in glory.
1 Tim 3:16
