In the temporal world: There must be a birthing process, in order that, one can be born and brought into this world; at which time we were separated (living apart) from Christ –with no knowledge of or right in God’s agreements, His covenants. And had no hope- no promise; you were in the world without God. Eph. 2:12.

 

However, in the realm of eternity the birthing process is somewhat different; you must die first; in order that, the re birth may occur. Here: The Cross of Christ is significant. For with out it, our re-birth would not have come to fruition. For He [himself] is our peace- our bond of unity and harmony. He has made us both [Jew and Gentile] one (body), and has broken down the middle wall of partition between us. Eph2:14.  Having abolished in His [crucified] flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; to make in himself, of twain one new man, so making peace; and that He might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby. For through Christ we both have access by one spirit unto the Father.Eph.2:15, 16, 18.  We are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints; and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the Chief Cornerstone.

 

Unto the Church of God… to them that are sanctified, consecrated, purified and made holy in Christ Jesus, [who are] selected and called to be saints together with all those who in any place: call upon and give honor to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours: Grace (favor and spiritual blessing) be to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor.1:2&3.

 

And hath put all things under His feet, and gave him to be the Head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him that filleth all in all. Eph. 1:22&23.

 

The Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ by the gospel. Eph.3:6.

 

Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Savior of the body. Eph.5:24.

 

Christ loved the church and gave himself for it. Eph.5:25.  That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word; that He might present it [the church] to Himself: A glorious church without spot or wrinkle or any such thing.Eph.5:26&27.

 

We are the members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.Eph.5:30.

 

He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things. And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors; and some teachers; Eph.4:11. For the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the full and accurate knowledge of the Son of God; that [we might arrive] at a maturity – the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection- the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ, and the completeness found in Him.Eph.4:12&13. Amplified.
