Furthermore, this image that Paul saw, was ...
[ Romans 16:25 ... according to my gospel, ... according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began.

[ Mark 16:15 Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: ]
