Ephesians 4:11 So Christ Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,
12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up
13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
- [The Lord’s sheep know His voice and will not follow another. In the very near future men of God will lay aside their false beliefs and cling to the truth, and in turn teach it to others. The church will reach maturity after which…]
14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.
15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is, Christ.
16 From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
- [Rest assured this day is coming. The Lord has sent forth apostles of Christ with instructions…]
…to destroy speculations and every lofty opinion raised up against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:5.
- [The wheat and tares will continue to grow together until the Lord and His angels come to separate them.]
