What do you mean there are two mysteries and they are running parallel, and someday they will meet?
One other question is, what is the meaning of the word EPITOME?

(From the The Two Great Mysteries teaching)



Dear Robbie,
God bless you and thank you for writing about this important subject. What we mean by the two mysteries running parallel is that they are both realities in the world, but they are completely separate. As we say in the teaching, "The first one is of God, the latter is of the wicked one. The one is manifested in Christ. The other will be manifested in the Antichrist. Closer examination will reveal the terrible truth that one is a very close counterfeit of the other; so close that many will be deceived and led to destruction." We use the word "epitome" (Greek epitemnein to cut short) as it is also used as a synonym for embodiment. One definition for the word is: "a person or thing that is typical of or possesses to a high degree the features of a whole class: He is the epitome of goodness." This is clearly what our Lord Christ Jesus is for righteousness, and the coming anti-Christ will be for evil.

We hope this helps,
The Believers
