Ephesians 4:13 – The realization of the son of God

03-07-2018 - Posted by Andre Piet

…unto the end that we should all attain to the unity of the faith and of the realization of the son of God…

The gifts that were mentioned in verse 11 would be given “until”. Not until the ecclesia would have disappeared from the earthly scene, as is usually thought. But until the ecclesia would no longer be immature. Or being carried about by every wind of teaching (:14). In other words, when all we be made know to her what she is required to know. The completed scriptures! No longer a fragmentary knowledge of faith, but “the unity of the faith”.

The second “until” is that we all (the ecclesia as a whole) would attain “the realization of the son of God”. It is about what the Son of God himself realizes. What he knows and what he is aware of. How else could we achieve this, than by the Son of God himself informing us of this? And that is exactly what he did when he revealed himself to Paul from heaven and communicated to him his deepest thoughts and entrusted his words to him. All this has been made known and written on Scripture. So that we would know!
