Week 1: God’s Eternal Purpose and His Economy

I. God’s eternal purpose is to make man in His image, so that man can express Him, and give man His dominion, to represent Him, so that man can exercise His authority – Gen. 1:26-27: (continued)
C. God’s eternal purpose can only be accomplished by His economy, His plan, His household administration, which is to dispense Himself into His believers as life and everything so that they can be built up to be the Body of Christ – Gen. 2:9-10; Eph. 3:8-11; John 10:10b.

Genesis 2:9-10 And out of the ground Jehovah God caused to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, as well as the tree of life in the middle of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 And a river went forth from Eden to water the garden, and from there it divided and became four branches.

Ephesians 3:9-11 And to enlighten all that they may see what the economy of the mystery is, which throughout the ages has been hidden in God, who created all things, 10 In order that now to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenlies the multifarious wisdom of God might be made known through the church, 11 According to the eternal purpose which He made in Christ Jesus our Lord,

John 10:10 …I have come that they may have life and may have it abundantly.
