EPH. 1:9–10, 23; 4:13, 16; 5:27; REV 19:7

For God’s good pleasure to be fulfilled, His purpose to be accomplished, and His economy to be carried out (Eph. 1:9-10) that He might have the church as Christ’s built-up Body and a full-grown new man to express Him (v. 23; 4:13, 16), and as Christ’s prepared bride to satisfy Him in love (5:27; Rev. 19:7).

Eph. 1:9-10—Making known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Himself, unto the economy of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth, in Him.

Eph. 1:23—Which is His Body, the fullness of the One who fills all in all.

Eph. 4:13—Until we all arrive at the oneness of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, at a full-grown man, at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

Eph. 4:16—Out from whom all the Body, being joined together and being knit together through every joint of the rich supply and through the operation in the measure of each one part, causes the growth of the Body unto the building up of itself in love.

Eph. 5:27—That He might present the church to Himself glorious, not having spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that she would be holy and without blemish.

Rev. 19:7—Let us rejoice and exult, and let us give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.

Persevere in prayer.
