Ephesians 3:10 New Living Translation (NLT)
10 God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God in order that at the present time, by means of the church, the angelic rulers and powers in the heavenly world might learn of his wisdom in all its different forms. So that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
Ephesians 3:10 The Message (MSG)
8-10 And so here I am, preaching and writing about things that are way over my head, the inexhaustible riches and generosity of Christ. My task is to bring out in the open and make plain what God, who created all this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along. Through followers of Jesus like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!
God didn’t make the church for ungodly pleasures but for gathering in his works and his name. God’s real purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. For him to introduce his teachings and bring pure knowledge to his kingdom. His purpose was to bring awareness of the heavenly realms and the heavenly laws.
