Heaven has a mystery. One that benefits us. I love how the Amplified version describes this mystery.
Yet God is sharing His riches with us. This is the mystery. Why didn't He just wipe out man and start over with the fall? What about the flood, He could've starred over again then? What are His riches in glory?
We know what is not counted as riches. Here gold is valuable, in Heaven it is used to pave the streets. Pearls are used as gates in Heaven and jewels for building with. So what we see as valuable here on Earth is looked as nothing to God.
God's riches are for our benefit. They are:
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,”
Ephesians 2:4 NASB
“so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
Ephesians 2:7 NASB
“Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?”
Romans 2:4 NASB
These are the riches that He has made known to us.
