6 and rouses us together and seats us together among the celestials, in Christ Jesus,
7 that, in the oncoming eons, He should be displaying the transcendent riches of His grace in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
(So, the GRACE He has shown to US, will be on display.)
9 and to enlighten all as to what is the administration of the secret, which has been concealed from the eons in God, Who creates all,
10 that now may be made known to the sovereignties and the authorities among the celestials, through the ecclesia, the multifarious wisdom of God,
11 in accord with the purpose of the eons, which He makes in Christ Jesus, our Lord;
(So, At one time, this stuff was “a secret” — but “NOW” it’s being made known to two groups…
- the sovereignties among the celestials
- and the authorities among the celestials…
Those two groups are checking out just how GRACIOUS God is to us “bad boys of Antioch” (as I like to say.)
But one day, “through the ecclesia” all the celestials will come home. See Colossians 1:15-20). And through Israel, all the nations will come home.
Grace to you, sleepy head.
