PT9 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: There Must Be A True Foundation Laid Of The True Gospel, That Will Bring Us Into the Maturity Of Christ Measuring Up To The Full Statue Of Christ Jesus. "Because of God's special favor to me, I have Laid The Foundation Like An Expert Builder. Now Others Are Building On It. But whoever is building on this Foundation Must Be Very Careful. For No One Can Lay Any Other Foundation Than The One We Already Have-- Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 3:10 "We are His House, Build On The Foundation Of The Apostles And The Prophets. And The Cornerstone Is Christ Jesus Himself." Ephesians 2:20 The True Foundation Of The Gifts To The Body of Christ Jesus Yahshua, The Ekklesia, Must Be Found In The Chief Cornerstone which is Christ Jesus Himself. "And You Should Follow My Example, JUST As I Follow Christ." 1 Corinthians 11:1 Every Gift To The Body Of Christ, The Ekklesia, Must Be Patterned After Christ's Example if they Are A True Gift To The Body. "But God's Truth Stands Firm Like A Foundation Stone With This Inscription: "The Lord Knows Those Who Are His, And Those Who Claim They Belong To The Lord Must Turn Away From All Wickedness." 2 Timothy 2:19 Read Luke 6:43-49
