God raised us up (Eph. 2:6)

“God raised us up

With Christ.

He seated us

With Christ

In the heavenly places

In Christ Jesus.”

καὶ συνήγειρεν καὶ συνεκάθισεν ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ,

Paul said, “God raised us up with Christ (καὶ συνήγειρεν).  He seated us with Christ (καὶ συνεκάθισεν) in the heavenly places (ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις) in Christ Jesus (ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ).”  Only the Pauline letters used this word συνήγειρεν, that means to raise together or along with.  Paul explained that the grace of God would make us raise up from the dead with Jesus Christ.  We would then be seated in heaven with Christ.  Everything was done in the name of Jesus Christ, who made all this possible for us.  Do you expect to raise up with Jesus Christ?
