Welcome to In Heavenly Places
The book of Ephesians in the bible states that Christ is the Head of the Body the Church - that Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God preached the unsearchable riches of Christ; to us gentiles. And to make all men see what is the dispensation of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ and we who trust in Christ after hearing the truth of salvation in whom also after that we believed, we were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise...
when God raised from the dead Christ Jesus, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all... He gave him to be the head over all things to The church, Which is His Body...And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Paul prayed that the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling..
The Mystery of the dispensation of the Grace of God was hid in God until it was revealed to Paul in prison after the period of the Acts of the apostles ended with Israel being set aside in Acts 28:28 and so the birth of the Church which is His Body. Israel no longer first as in Paul's previous letter to the Romans with the gentile grafted in, the mystery that was hid in scripture Rom 16:25-26.
Putting aside the prior hope of Paul's calling as a Hebrew of Hebrews forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, we too press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Our calling like Paul's is no longer the earthly kingdom of God, or blessed with Abraham who saw through faith the new Jerusalem. We are to be blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.
