A Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation

March 15, 2020 Speaker: Marshall Hines Series: Ephesians

Topic: Ephesians Passage: Ephesians 1:15–1:23

The Mystery of God's Will - Made Known in Ephesians
The Church - Wife of Christ Body of Christ/One New Man God's Household and Sons, His Inheritance/Building/Temple All Things Headed Up in Christ
(headship/kingdom)
3:10 so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church 1:22b-23 … the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. 1:5 He predestined us to adoption as sons (lit. sonship) through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will 1:10 with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up (lit. heading up) of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth.
5:28-29 So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church 2:15-16 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, ..., so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross… 1:11 also we have obtained an inheritance (or were chosen as His inheritance), having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, 1:22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church
5:31-32 FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. 3:6 to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel 1:17-18 that you will know what is the ... what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints 4:15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ,
  4:16 from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. 2:19-22 ... you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit. 5:5 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
  5:30 because we are members of His body. 4:12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.
