Verses:

Eph. 1:10 “Unto the economy of the fullness of the times, to head up all things in Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth, in Him.”

 

Excerpts:

When God created the universe, everything of the universe was in oneness; all things in it were in harmony. Because of Satan’s rebellion, which was followed by man’s fall, this original oneness in creation was ruined so that the entire universe was brought into confusion. Satan damaged the oneness of the universe in creation by introducing death into all creation, which death severed the Creator’s relationship with creation.

 

Yet God had an eternal plan to head up all things in Christ. God’s way to recover the oneness among His creation is to impart Himself in Christ into us as life. The Triune God as life brings in light, and light issues in harmony and brings all things into oneness. Hence, the believers participate in this heading up by growing in life, by being headed up in the proper church life, and by living under Christ’s light. The more we grow in life, the more we will be headed up and the more we will be rescued from the universal collapse. This process of heading up all things in Christ is still continuing, and the heading up of all things will be fully accomplished and manifested when Christ finishes His work to bring forth the new creation out of the old creation through all the dispensations of God. It is through this new creation that Christ will head up all creation and bring it into the universal oneness; this will issue in the new heaven and the new earth. (The Conclusion of the New Testament,
msg. 333)
