Scripture: “[The purpose is] that through the church the complicated, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known to the angelic rulers and authorities (principalities and powers) in the heavenly sphere.” – Ephesians 3:10 (AMPC).
Meditate: God has clearly revealed to us in the Scripture above the reason why the Church (Body of Christ) is here on earth. So what’s the reason? “The purpose is that through the Church the complicated, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known…” Made known to whom? “…to the angelic rulers and authorities (principalities and powers) in the heavenly sphere.” Wow!!!
Simply put, the Church’ purpose is to unveil before every throne and rank of angelic orders in the heavenly realm God’s full and diverse wisdom. His objective is that through the Church, He intends to display His infinite and boundless rich variety of wisdom to all the unseen rulers and authorities in heavenly realms.
God’s purpose is that through the Church all the rulers and powers in the heavenly world will now know His wonderful manifold wisdom, which has so many forms. God’s purpose was and still is and will always be to use the Church for this purpose.
According to Scripture, the ‘Church’ is the ‘Body of Christ’ made up of ‘Christians’ (true worshippers, disciples and followers of Jesus Christ), and that through Christians like you and me united as the Church, this extraordinary plan of God has to be revealed, made known and talked about even among the angels! Wow!!! But coming to think about it, it’s shockingly true and very sad to see that in Christendom these days they hardly have a clue about the spirit world or rulers and authorities in heavenly realms, let alone these Scriptural truths.
So let me close by asking this question, Why the Church is here on earth? If you didn’t know even after all this explanation, then here it is again the Scriptural answer to it: “In order that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the Church to the rulers and the authorities in heavenly places.” – Ephesians 3:10.
Are you a part of this Church? Do you think as a Christian, as the part of the Body of Christ the ‘Church’ you are fulfilling this God given purpose? If you haven’t, then it’s time to rethink and get on with it, starting with spending time with God the Holy Spirit in prayer and meditation of God’s Word (Bible) and get to know Him personally, and then by and by He’ll open your spiritual eye’s to understanding and to see the spirit world. Pray you do or you’ll have a lot to answer when you stand before God one day.
