Ephesians 3:11 This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord,

Greg smiling

This verse is the sum of all the scripture as it was written by inspiration of God, in everything that has taken place since and before creation. In everything that will take place. In every event in History, the coming and going of mankind. The rise and fall of nations. The rising of the sun to the setting of the sun. From the law and commandments through the setting up kings and the taking down of kings. To every person called to prophesies and the judges called to judge. To every person in power to every President ever elected by the will of God. To our birth and our death. Everything that has happened and will happened is according  to the eternal purpose that He has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord. But to focus more content on the text, the main focus has been the church (The body of Christ) now revealed and the means by which God chose to carry it out. The supernatural bonding of Jews and Gentiles into on body. From eternity passed the triune God with the absence of man,  decreed the Gospel to be the gospel. That spiritually dead persons are called by God, quickened by the Holy Spirit and redeemed by the blood of Christ. and other gospel is accursed.
