Pleroma – Part 4. The Pleroma = The fullness. This word is applied by Jesus in the New Testament scriptures to identify something that repairs a tear or rip in a fabric, that is subsequently filled by a patch. Pleroma fills the tear or gap. There are many “gaps” in scripture and one of the most important gaps to be understood is identified in Acts 28:28. This is when Christ reveals through the Apostle Paul the start of another gap which He calls The Mystery. This body of truth is what fills the gap between the time of Christ on the cross and when He reigns on this earth in the future. This gap is still active and Christ is now seated in the heavenlies which is where we (members of the body of Christ) are seated with Him. We find in Ephesians that God has a purpose for your life which fits within His purpose for the Ages. This purpose is simply to fulfill His purpose. Right now you are on display for the principalities and powers in the heavenly places as declared in Eph 3:10-11(KJV) ”To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:” Not only does God have a plan for your life right now, but He has one for the ages to come! The pleroma speaks to the fact that God was “all in all” in the beginning and He will be “all in all” in the future (end). This lesson on June 22, 2003 continues the series on the “pleroma” and often refers to the Pleroma chart (which you may download here).
