Heavenly Realms Exist:
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
WHEN WILL WE KNOW THE MYSTERY OF DISCLOSURE?
With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be
put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
WHO RULES THE UNIVERSE - THE POWER OF GOD MANIFEST IN CREATION
19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the
dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked,
not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for
the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
RULER OF THE AIR BREATHERS - RULER OF THE KINGDOM OF AIR - TERRESTRIAL RULER
2 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of
the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.
SALVATION FROM HEAVENLY REALMS AND NOT OF OURSELVES
6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the
incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this
is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to
do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
CREATION OF A NEW HUMANITY
14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15 by setting aside in
his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and
in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to you who
were far away and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
THE MYSTERY HELD BY GOD AND REVEALED TO MAN - SALVATION MIXED ETHNICITY
2 Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation,
as I have already written briefly. 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not
made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets. 6 This mystery is that
through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.
PAUL'S PURPOSE AND THE MYSTERY REVEALED
to preach to the Gentiles the boundless riches of Christ, 9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was
kept hidden in God, who created all things. 10 His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the
rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, 11 according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 In him and
through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. 13 I ask you, therefore, not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you,
which are your glory.
14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name.
---There are families in heaven, just like families on Earth.
ONE SPIRIT, ONE HOPE, ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, AND ONE BAPTISM
4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father
of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
---The Lord of hosts is rules the bodies below. The Spirit indwells it's host. We are the host of God's Spirit, which is what gives all living
EXISTENCE BEYOND THIS UNIVERSE
“When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.”
9 (What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions[c]? 10 He who descended is the very one who ascended
higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.)
THE EXPECTATION OF THE SPIRIT FOR SALVATION FROM THE EARTH
17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are
darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19
Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.
20 That, however, is not the way of life you learned 21 when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in
Jesus. 22 You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; 23 to
be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
---This chapter goes on to outline the mark of the person being saved into the kingdom of the Heavens.
5 1 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a
fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
ENTANGLEMENT WITH THE ANGEL ABOVE - SEE THIS THREAD
22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the
church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
THE MOST PROFOUND MYSTERY OF ALL - YOUR ANGEL ABOVE
31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”[c] 32 This is a profound
mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must
respect her husband.
---When you leave this body, you will be rejoined to the other half of yourself above. See the linked thread above.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THOSE TRAVELING TO EARTH AS SERVANTS
5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. 6 Obey them not only to win
their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving
the Lord, not people, 8 because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.
