NT intern proof where aionon cant mean endless

25 Now to him who is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for aionon times, 26 but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the aionon God, so that all the Gentiles might come to faith and obedience

its also the only verse in the NT where God is called aionon, its impossible that something is kept secret endless times and then beeing revealed

the textus receptus greek text:

25 τω δε δυναμενω υμας στηριξαι κατα το ευαγγελιον μου και το κηρυγμα ιησου χριστου κατα αποκαλυψιν μυστηριου χρονοις αιωνιοις σεσιγημενου
26 φανερωθεντος δε νυν δια τε γραφων προφητικων κατ επιταγην του αιωνιου θεου εις υπακοην πιστεως εις παντα τα εθνη γνωρισθεντος

Do you think John Wesley knew about the aionios God?


1 ROCK of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Save from wrath and make me pure.

2 Could my tears for ever flow,
Could my zeal no languor know.
These for sin could not atone;
Thou must save and thou alone:
In my hand no price I bring,
Simply to thy cross I cling.

3 While I draw this fleeting breath,
When my eyes shall close in death,
When I rise to worlds unknown,
And behold thee on thy throne,
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee.




18And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

 19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

 20And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

 21And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

 22And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:


--Ex 33

John Wesley was a voracious reader.  There's no question that he was aware of it, particularly since he was a Universalist.

Are most Wesleyan churches universalist as well?
God does not instruct us to pray to change His mind. He wants us to pray so that we'll know His mind.
 
"Prayer doesn't change God, it changes me." --C.S. Lewis

God never had or needed a Plan B. He's still on Plan A.
