The Mystery of Godliness
I hope to come to you soon, but I am writing these things to you so that,
if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth.
Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:
s He was manifested in the flesh,
vindicated by the Spirit,
t seen by angels,
u proclaimed among the nations,
v believed on in the world,
w taken up in glory.

I went up because of a revelation and set before them (though privately before those who seemed influential) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in order to make sure I was not running or had not run in vain.
2 Thessalonians 1:10
When he comes on that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be marveled at among all who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed.
Until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen.
