PT6 The Same One Who Came Down He Is The One Who Ascended Higher Than All The Heavens, So That His Rule Might Fill The Entire Universe. He Is The One Who Gave These Gifts to the church: (Ekklesia, God's Called Out Ones) The Apostles, The Prophets, The Evangelist, And The Pastors and Teachers. Their Responsibility Is To Equip God's People To Do His Work and Build Up the church, (The Ekklesia) The Body Of Christ, Until We Come To Such Unity In Our Faith And Knowledge of God's Son That We Will Be Mature And Full Growing In The Lord, Measuring Up To The Full Statue Of Christ. Then we will no longer Be Like Children, forever changing our minds about What We Believe because someone has told us Something Different or because someone has Cleverly Lied To Us and Made The Lies Sound Like The Truth. Ephesians 4:10-14 Lesson here: So do we have a True Representation and Examples of what these Gifts and Functions look like? Yes we do! "Follow God's Example In Everything You Do, Because You Are His Children. Live A Life Filled With Love For Others, Following The Example Of Christ, Who Loved You and Gave Himself As An Offering To Take Away Your Sins. And God was pleased because that Sacrifice was like Sweet Perfume To Him." Ephesians 5:1-2 "How we Praise God, The Father Of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us With Every Spiritual Blessing In The Heavenly Realms Because We Belong To Christ. Long ago, Even Before HE Made The World, God Loved Us And Chose Us In Christ To Be Holy And Without Fault In His Eyes. His Unchanging Plan has always been to Adopt Us Into His Own Family By Bringing Us To Himself Through Jesus Christ. And This Gave Him Great Pleasure." Ephesians 1:3-5 So we will find Every Gift Of The Divine Order Was Experienced And Expressed Through Christ Jesus Yahshua! He Was And Is Our Ultimate Example of All God's Gift To His Body, The Ekklesia, God's Called Out Ones. Christ Jesus Yahshua Did Function In All Of The Gifts.
