An Expose on Colossians Two and Two

Col 2:2 that their hearts might be comforted, being knit together (coalesce, combine, merge, cohere) in love, and to all riches of the full assurance of the understanding, to the full knowledge (epignosis) of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ

By revelation, the knowledge of God’s mysteries will coalesce, combine, merge, cohere and be “jelloed” into understanding.  There are riches which are created when we understand something.  Or understanding a matter, brings great riches. The riches become immeasurable when we have full and confident understanding. This is what Paul exhorts us to do with the mysteries of God.

Pr 3:19  By wisdom Yahweh founded the earth. By understanding, he established the heavens.

Knowledge is power and spiritual knowledge by far is the greatest knowledge of all.

The knowledge of Christ is the most essential of all knowledge. Inside of Him resides all of the maneuverings of the universe with its visible and invisible effects. In Him resides the eternal redemption for humanity.

Paul finishes this verse by expounding on what the full assertion of all understanding means. He uses the word epignosis which is a complete and exact knowledge so deep,  that it can transform. This is the word for recognition.

The riches brought by  our assertion of all understanding are the epignosis or recognition of the mysteries of God.
