Perfection. To become a perfect man is generally seen as something attainable only in the next age as though it is not yet but must become later after a 2nd coming but scripture says otherwise.
Hebrews 7.11 Therefore, if perfection were through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise.
The truth is the saving and redemption is to what Adam lost. A co-conscientiousness with God the Father. As Christ prayed “Father that they may be one with us”. This is the reconciliation of the cross Paul saying “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us this word of reconciliation. (not a future reconciling)20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. (this is what Adam lost and passed onto all humanity) 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (Adams loss restored, Adams fallen lifted back up, raised and resurrected). This is not a gift delegated to a 2nd coming savior but the cross as having happened. The reconciliation of the world described in these verses are a new world view that the created world responds differently to.
Adam departed from his God given role and took on the contrast. The creation that he was to “have dominion over” now had dominion over him saying “of the sweat of your face you shall work the earth and thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you”. God did not curse the earth or Adams flesh. Adam started thinking backwards relying on his lower nature and its senses. So implemented the opposite of faith being shame, fear and self preservation as the carnal senses informed him. Proof of this is he did work with his hands in the Garden as evident by the fig leaf where he covered himself in a shameful way. Until then God was his covering and to that we are restored by means of the gospel. Like when God visited Abraham God said to Him “I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward”. That about covers it. What more could you want? You see all Gods works are word.
And this is what the gospel does to those who hear Gods word and believe it. We are re clothed. We are covered and refitted to glorify God by doing what God does, which is to speak a thing to be. “For greater works shall you do because I go to the Father” were the words of Christ”. In this way “we are a kind of first fruits of His creation. We are His kind and not fish, fowl or animal. This is what it means to “put on Christ. And this is mandated now and not at a 2nd coming. We become saints, holy and glorious like “the Father of Glories”. We become “the perfect man is able to bridle his mouth”.
Together with my dead body[b] they shall arise. (26.19)
being flesh of My flesh (of invisible attributes seen in Christ) and bone of My bone (of being sound doctrine).
Redemption is in three parts and is incomplete without including creation. And that has happened for those who believe in scripture as is evident by these bible quotes. “Christ came to “redeem all things to himself”. God restored all things to himself through Jesus Christ and He is the propitiation for the whole world”, “for God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world to Himself”. And “God sent His Son into the world not to condemn the world but that the world through Him would be saved”. If we are in Him it is. And last but not least;
The resurrection of life is available now and the new creation is available now. The transformation by the Spirit from glory to glory is available now, and putting on Christ is available now. This is true godliness, or God-like-ness.
The disciples asked Jesus Why He spoke to the people in parables and He answered them saying “Because to you it has been given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom, but to them it has not been given”.
This here thenÂ coincidesÂ with “of those born among women there is noneÂ greater than John the baptist, but he who is least in the kingdom is greater than he”. That it is thoseÂ who are looking to time as a dispenser of the things of God to be manifest in physical matter the things of God, they are blinded because it is by revelation that we receive the things of God. Not a date on theÂ calendar..Â
Knock knock!Â Who is there? Hi Dad this is Jesus. Hey those guys you gave me? Well I told them about your mansion with many rooms. Well they asked me if they could come over. I told them I would prepare a place for them, and that I would come back and get them. Well they really have their hopes up, so I was wondering if they could come over? To this the Father said “No! Not in a million years! Jesus then trying to save face with his buddiesÂ bargainsÂ with His Father saying. Aw come on Dad, that’s a long time. How about just 2000 years, to which the Father says ;Okay!
The currency of our age is money. If you have enough you can go any where and do anything.Â Money is power for the things of this age.
But the currency of the eternal,Â invisibleÂ realm is word. Gods word. It is His word that grants us access. As different currencies display the icon of that kingdom, be it a king or a queen. It is the power of that one it carries. It is the assorted words that make up the gospel and re-assembled in us that displays the icon of our currency Jesus Christ. But unlike the artwork of an icon on a dead piece of paper or coin that bears an image to acquire things of that culture, our currency being the word of God has more than just a depiction of a man, but the very handiwork of God Himself being His Son, Jesus Christ. He is the Word of God that the words of the gospel display. And this word is living and powerful for our transformation now.
So we who have faith â€œIn Christâ€ carry about not a dead document called money with a picture of a dead man on it but God in Word form. This is what all those born of His kingdom have. To the one who has faith in Him, in His Word, they have God in Word form and the true impression or reflection and likeness of the Father is Jesus Christ being the Word of God, and the Word was God. (John 1.1) This is the very nature of God.
We partake of the Word of God being the bread of life. Which is food of the Spirit in the Kingdom of God. It is as we accept the testimony of Gods Son, the words in our inward person by faith and washed by the Holy Spirit that it becomes for us not just an iconic figure of a dead man, but the impression of God Himself. We take on not an impression like a tattoo on our outward man but His very nature and character in our invisible inward parts. We are of His kind. For even the angels in heaven behold the face of the Father in these little onesâ€. (Mt 18.10)
We donâ€™t have to carry dead money in our pocket for our new culture. We have His Word stored up in our heart. These are the keys to the Kingdom of God â€œIn Christâ€ for us in the here and now. We have the same measure of faith. We believe therefor we speakâ€. (2 Corinthians 4.13) It is the word we receive by faith that we speak that grants us access.Â So when we are instructed to follow those who through faith and patience receive the promisesâ€¦? (Heb 6.12) This is that.
The promises are ourÂ currencyÂ and are not a deadÂ Â document or coin. When you inherit the promise, you receive the thing that is said. And it is said of Gods Son â€œWho shall descend into the deep to bring Him up? Or who shall ascend to the heavens to bring Him down? But what does His Word say? The word is close to you, even in your heart that you may hear it and do itâ€. And what is it that we will do not by human endeavor but by our work of faith? We believe and speak, but we do not bring Him back. We go up.
We ascend to the very heights of heaven to God Himself. The keys to His Kingdom are His words displayed in His Son being the bread of life broken down for our consumption, received, believed and re-assembling Himself inside of us through the gospel which repeats the Word already spoken, â€œfor God in former times spoke to the fathers by the law and the prophets has in His final saying spoken to us by His Sonâ€ (Heb 1+) The Son is His final answer on everything that pertains to eternal life and god-like-ness. God has spoken. Now waiting for His enemies to become His footstool.
It is now your doubts and fears that you lay at the feet of Jesus that are His enemies that kept you from the Kingdom because He paid your price. For it is by the cross that He has already defeated for you the god of the Adamic age and that He overcame sin and death and gave this to you. Jesus Christ dies no more for these, nor does He squabble or fight over them any more ever again. He defeated them publicly,Â victoriouslyÂ triumphing over them. (Col 2.14) And He does not repeat Himself or have to come a 2nd time to become victorious as if He wasnâ€™t powerful enough the first time for â€œGod has spokenâ€.
It is as we know His word and have faith in the things He has said, that have been passed on to us in what we call the gospel, it is these very words given then mixed with faith that grants you the thing youÂ believe.
If God said itâ€¦it is. If Jesus said itâ€¦it is. The two are one. â€œWhat the Father does the Son likewise doesâ€. So when Jesus said â€œI go to prepare a place for you..He did saying â€ that where I am you may be alsoâ€â€¦He did. He Also said â€œI will come again to receive you to myselfâ€. Who also said â€œFather I want those whom you have given me to be with Me where I am, that they may behold My Glory, that the Glory you have given me I have given themâ€â€¦. and it is so. Â Who also said â€œI speak not to just these here today but those also who will believe their word, (the gospel) that they too may be oneâ€. Â He said itâ€¦and it is. Believe it or not. The choice is yours.
He creates everything with His word and His word creates. He does not speak in jest and He does not repeat Himself as though the thing that He said is not true yet. He healed the sick and raised the dead how? With His word. With a word. He does not speak 2000+ year time release capsules. And He does not need to be said again or performed by a second coming Jesus. And it is not as though you need to see it with human eyes for it to be true â€œfor we look to the things that are unseen. The things that are seen are temporary but the things that are unseen are eternal. Like it or not. His words not mine.
This is why Paul could say that we are seated together with Jesus Christ in the heavens. He believed in His heart and spoke to receive the promise being the keys and currency of the Kingdom of God in Christ to whom belongs eternal Glory amen!
Now then you who were baptized into His death, what was it that you saw when you became dead? You were raised by faith to new life having come up out of the water. What was it you saw then when you were resurrected? So why is it that you started by the spirit that you are to be perfected by something you see? And why is it you are waiting to be resurrected at a second coming when you already went through baptism? Did you not believe? Who told you this. This persuasion cometh not from Him who calls you to His eternal Glory through the Gospel. Believe the gospel. That which is from the beginning. Not that which is coming as though it is not yet.
The Son has spoken. The Gospel re-iterates what has been spoken for each generation to experience the gift of God in Christ Jesus, being God the Father. God does not repeat Himself. The scriptures do and we do. This is what becomes alive. This is our living. Our eternal life now. This is the faith once and for all delivered to the saints (jude..)
God said through His Son â€œlet there be lightâ€ for the first creation and it was so, spokeÂ by His Son in these last days, His final say so on the matter who made a bridge for us to the new creation saying (John 17)â€Father that those whomÂ you have given me may be with me where I amâ€. And who are those with Him where He is? â€œTo them He gave power to be His children, even to those who believe in His name who are not born of flesh but of Spiritâ€.
This is His inscription and His likeness. It is at that point our soul is stamped with Him. His name is stamped on our forehead by a renewed mind according to His word. It is here that we carry not a dead iconic impression on a deadÂ pieceÂ of paper or coin but the living word in our heart is our currency.
This becomes for us more than any currency or money of unrighteous mammon and even more powerful than a passport holding you spell bound and idle waiting for a 2nd coming promise for another Jesus. Oh no no no. There is nothing dead or in limbo or waiting about the word of God but doubts fears and deceptions. It is these things that are Â the enemies of God. Why? Because God already gave you the victory over satan sin and death at the cross. You just donâ€™tÂ believeÂ it yet. You donâ€™t have the thing that has been spoken. You have not received the promise.
It is not you that are the enemy for He is the propitiation for the whole world. But it is your wrong thoughts. This is why the gospel says that â€œthe weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God, pulling down arguments, strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against this knowledge of Godâ€. If you are still fighting against satan sin and death you donâ€™t understand the gospel or the power of God. You must battle with the word of God, the sword of the spirit in the upper echelons of your mind.
If youÂ believeÂ that the words of God are I.O.U.â€™s to beÂ activated by a second coming Jesus when he comes to defeat satan sin and death, that is a powerless place to be. You must defeat that mindset now by the word of God in the upper echelons/heavens of your mind. These are the things that keep you out of the kingdom now. Not satan or sin but unbelief and deceptions. It is these that must be put under foot for the word of God to be fulfilled in you, not for Him to come back and do that. He did that.
This is what Jesus meant when He said â€œThe Kingdom of God is at handâ€ even back then. He also said that â€œthe Kingdom cometh not with (carnal) observationâ€. But this is what every 2nd coming seeker cult does. â€œLook here or look thereâ€, but Jesus said â€œdo not follow themâ€ (Luke 17 20+). Apply the words God already spoke by His Son and defeat that crap. Put it underfoot. Lay it at the feet of JesusÂ where all His enemies are like satan sin and death.
Everything that stands between you and God the Father today is an enemy and an anti-christ, but not satan sin or death. This is why Paul pleaded â€œbe ye reconciled (to the Father)n for He made Him who knew no sin to become our sin for us to become His righteousness in Himâ€. This is our inscription. This is our currency.
Come thou good and faithful (Full of faith) servant. Enter the joy of the Lord.
Antichrist and the Last time Deception in 1st John
1 John 2.18Â Little children, it is the last time; and as you have heard that theÂ Antichrist is coming, even now manyÂ anti-christsÂ have come, by which we know that it is the last time.Â 19Â TheyÂ went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; butÂ they went outÂ that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.Â
1 John 4.1Â Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; becauseÂ many false prophets have gone outÂ into the world.Â 2Â By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,Â 3Â and every spirit that does not confess that[a]Â Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is theÂ spiritÂ of the Antichrist, whichÂ you have heard was coming, and is nowÂ already in the world.Â
The writer John here talks about some who were among them, who would leave them and teach other things. John was safe guarding the believers from these anti-christs who went out from them. It is easy for us to think that John was talking about other beliefs and other religions when thinking about this anti-christ spirit that was then and expected to grow. But it was from among them that the falsehood would come. They use the scriptures.
As part of his safe guard John coined some Â phrases, and these phrases are relevant to the message about those trying to deceive them and you. And if they were aware that this falsehood was coming they needed to certainly be aware that it already was. If it was small then to get bigger, what is it today?Â
Well let’s unlock that by associating it with Johns newly termed phrases. Â Two of them are related to time. “that which was from the beginning” and “the last time” Â which Â means “end times”. Â These terms were for our safe guarding as well as a 3rd term “anti-christs” being those who “went out who manifest a new spirit or teaching that violated the truth that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. Those who deny Â this, who came out from them, believe something different but similar enough to deceive.Â
If it was not similar it would be no threat but this threat that now 2000 years later has become the threat of all threats to violate the faith once and for all delivered to the saints.
This threatÂ ignoresÂ the true message “from theÂ beginning”Â andÂ teaches another “last time” or end times, for John to have to clarify “last time”. That message that is anti-christ that came out of them that is a counterfeit to the truth that obscures that which is from the beginning. Their new gospel message obscures “Him who has come in the flesh” who brought salvation. They teach another end time and another coming one to save.
That is right. The message preached from end timers speak of another Jesus to come again on the world scene to save His people and bring salvation to planet earth. Yes. another Jesus to appear on the human stage.
Johns point in us needing to believe that Jesus the Son of God has come, is that what end time seekers expect Jesus to do at a 2nd coming, is what He already did. We already have what they expect to get. We have overcome the world.
Look what John said about this.. 1 John 5.4 “and what is the victory that overcomes the world? Even our faith!” Now this discredits a 2nd coming Jesus to overcome the world, for it is not an end time or another day event. And these anti-christs are those who teach another end time with another Jesus for delivering us from this world. They call it end times and a 2nd coming Jesus.
This is scary stuff if you are mixed up in it. Is it the message of the 2nd coming? Or that which is from theÂ beginning” that John teaches and affirms? John felt it important enough to address this by letter. Is it the message of the cross? Or a tribulation a rapture and a futureÂ resurrectionÂ that overcomes the world and saves you? So when Jesus came to save, deliver and redeem, did He do that then?Â Or just give you aÂ promissoryÂ note?
Is He King of Kings now or must He become that at a 2nd coming? Is He in full Glory now or must He come here to claim a victory later? Did He defeat satan sin and death or does He do that later?Â If you are not sure I am afraid for you for you know Him not.
Jesus said in John 12.31 “Now is the judgment of this world! Now the ruler of this world is cast out!”Â Was this a prophesy of a future event? I think not if you have faith in the one who said it “from the beginning” for He cannot lie. Every word He ever spoke was accomplished the moment He said it as evidenced by Him speaking forth creation. He who said “Let there be light”? He said “arise and walk”.
Another end time teaching of another deliverer to save you keeps you from the gift of God that is “InÂ Christ” now. You cannotÂ receiveÂ thisÂ rewardÂ because you are closed off thinking it is later. You have faith in a fairy tale of fallenÂ fairies. You shouldn’t just ponder thisÂ message but you should flee. I mean if John equates another last time, end times with “anti-christ”? It is anti-christ because it rejects the truth that he has saved, delivered, redeemed, and atoned. He put away transgression, made reconciliation for inequity, He brought us everlasting righteousness, He sealed up vision and prophesy and was anointed Most Holy as Jesus said “Now the Son of man is Glorified. And if God is Glorified in Him God will also Glorify Him immediately.” Now there is the Father and Son I know.
Who is this 2nd coming deliverer? That message is anti-christ, as is the whole message of another coming one clearly has not accepted that Christ already came in the flesh of whom 2 Peter 1.4 says that we are partakers of the divine nature having (already) escaped the corruption that is in the world”Â
Who is your deliverer? Â The Christ who is? Or a 2nd coming Jesus?
That which we have seen we have heard we have handled”. Not what you will see hear and handle at a 2nd coming, but “that from the beginning”.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
From Galatians 6.9 for in due time we shall reap if we do not faint”. The phrase due time is better rendered “own time” or “personal time” indicating that this is not a collective reaping like a 2nd coming . And of Israel of old who “knew not their time of visitation”. But we do. This is our appointed time if you have ears to hear.
This word from the Greek “due” is translated “own” several times like here in 1 Corinthians 15. 23 of the resurrection and being made alive, quickened.. That it will happen “to each one in his own (due) order”. This is not a collective event that we all have to wait for as the 2nd coming seekers teach, but each one in their own order. And same chapter verse 38 speaking of a resurrected that “every seed their own body. Their own order.
So these concepts, better yet spiritual truths are manifest in their own time, due time, private time, each one in their own order. By the one who “stands at the door (of your heart) and knocks”. Who need not to reappear again in a carnal construct to do so.
We need to quit looking at the various stages of our faith as a collective event fulfilled all at once at a second coming and allow yourself to advance step by step now. “If you are able to receive it” From Philippians 3.16 ” to the degree that you have attained, so walk ye in it. So we do.
With this in mind let us look at Galatians 3.23+ indicating that the law and the prophets were our tutors to bring us to Christ, but after faith, after the invisible comes we are no longer under the physical, visible, the law and the prophets, the tutors and toys. These are fulfilled in Christ.
This is the “when that which is perfect has come, that which is in part is done away with” in 2 Corinthians 13.10. Not a 2nd coming.. But perfect in understanding.
This is the “sown corruptible, physical, raised in-corruptible, Â invisible. in the spirit of the mind. 2 Corinthians 15.42+ Not a 2nd coming of a collective bodily resurrection, but each one in their own order, in their own time, due time, personal time.
This is like Jacobs ladder where he saw the angels of God ascending and descending. Where he called that place “Bethel” meaning “house of God” Â the “gate of heaven”. Where God promised to give him that land. And who was that Ladder with Beth-el and the land having the gate to heaven and the angels of God ascending and descending? Why it was none other then Jesus Christ, He fulfilled that too.”Can you believe this? Â Then “hereafter you shall see the heavens open up and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man. (John 1.51)
All things are “In Christ” and in Him is the house of God, be it called Bethel, or Shiloh, or Jerusalem, and He is the gate to heaven. This is why He could say “the Kingdom of God is at hand, right here. He is it, it is in Him. In Him all the promises of God are yes and amen to the glory of God the Father.
This is another reason why another physical Jerusalem on earth, or another coming of the man called Jesus to rule on planet earth is an unnecessary redundancy. For thinking this I destroy what the Lord accomplished in the Spirit and make myself a transgressor and a denier.
Jerusalem was already sown incorruptible, destroyed in the visible for you to acknowledge the invisible “Kingdom of God at hand” the incorruptible Jerusalem that comes from God.
You cannot see Him or His Kingdom with physical eyes that can only see this creation anyway.
It is He alone who has immortality dwelling in unapproachable light whom no man has seen or can see. Â (1 Tim 6.16)
Do you now see? can you now believe?Â Is this your own time, due time, private time, own order?
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
When the signers of the Constitution of The United States of America did so, they knew that they would not enjoy the freedoms they had laid down their lives for. TheyÂ sacrificed their blood for their grand children and future generations. You may say that they are the veryÂ foundations on which we stand if you are an American
In 1st Corinthians 15 Paul defines The gospel from the cross of Jesus Christ. Paul qualifies himself as the 12 born inÂ due timeÂ as one having seen the Lord, of which is the main qualification to have seen the Lord “to take part in this ministry” (Acts 2). Paul however did not witness the physical cross and Jesus with his eyes but that of a light that shown from heaven that blinded him. The eyes of his understanding. He saw theÂ Lord as He truly is.Â
Paul wraps up his discourse of this topic with these wordsÂ in verseÂ 57Â But thanksÂ beÂ to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” This victory was the cross that defeated death and broughtÂ immortalityÂ to light through the gospel. This is the true gospel.
Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand!
I was driving a vehicle like a golf cart. Along came this man who I would define as despicable having characteristics of every wicked person I have ever encountered. I knew this man to be evil but I also knew that I was divinely instructed to go with him against my will. I proceeded to drive backwards looking over my shoulder but then cooperating I turned the cart around to better see where I was going.. I then knew we were visiting the lower ranks in the spirit.
2 Corinthians 5:13-21New King James Version (NKJV)
13 For if we are beside ourselves,Â it isÂ for God; or if we are of sound mind,Â it isÂ for you.Â 14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died;Â 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
16 Therefore,Â from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, (a man or a baby)Â yet now we know Him thus no longer.Â 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,Â he is (now)Â a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then, we are ambassadors for (and citizens from) Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christs behalf, be reconciled to God (not in the rickety rooms or the basement but where He is in His Kingdom now). 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
I don’t know how someone could read this as something actuated at a 2nd coming for it is all past tense and actuated by the working of faith.
The fact is the first words out of the mouth of the man Jesus is still our starting point with Him “today!” if you will hear His voice. And that is?
Repent! For the Kingdom of God is at hand.
We have discussed in previous articles how Paul teaches in Ephesians that we having been made aliveÂ togetherÂ with Christ, having raised us upÂ togetherÂ In Christ, and made us sitÂ togetherÂ with ChristÂ in the heavens with Christ is the very “gathering togetherÂ of the fullness of times”. The mystery of the gospel that was entrusted to Paul for him to make all men see.
20Â â€œI do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will[e]Â believe in Me through their word;21Â that they all may be one, as You, Father,Â areÂ in Me, and I in You; thatÂ they also may be one in Us,Â that the world may believe that You sent Me.Â 22Â And the glory which You gave Me I have given them,Â that they may be one just as We are one:Â 23Â I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
24Â â€œFather, I desire that they also whom You gave MeÂ may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.Â 25Â O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.Â 26Â And I have declared to them Your name, and will declareÂ it,that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.â€
Isn’t being one with Him being raised together, ascended together and seated together with Him like Paul said? And this is our stewardship to proclaim this same truth now! Why? “That the world may know” and “that they (us who believe) made be made perfect in one” That is us now, perfect in understanding, being joined to Him who is the head of the body seated in the heavens now.Â
So do not say in your mind, well who is going to go to heaven to bring this down for us? (like a 2nd coming) Or who will ascend from the deep to bring Him up? Or, how can I climb up to sit down myself?Â
Romans 8.8Â But what does it say?Â â€œThe word is near you, in your mouth and in your heartâ€[a]Â (that is, the word of faith which we preach):Â 9Â that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.Â 10Â For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Â Unto completion, the full package, seated with Him in Glory, a perfect man, a full measure of Christ.
This is the gospel of the true Kingdom of God and the place of our calling. To Him through the working of faith.
Â To the intent that now the manifest, declared wisdom of God would be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavens. To make all of us see the dispensation of this mystery. Paul said these words then and it is as true for us today.
Ephesians 2.20+ Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone. In whom the whole building of God is joined together.
