The rich wisdom of God will be made known (Eph. 3:10)

“Through the church,

The wisdom of God

In its rich variety

Might now be made known

To the rulers

And authorities

In the heavenly places.”

ἵνα γνωρισθῇ νῦν ταῖς ἀρχαῖς καὶ ταῖς ἐξουσίαις ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις διὰ τῆς ἐκκλησίας ἡ πολυποίκιλος σοφία τοῦ Θεοῦ,

Paul said, “Through the church (διὰ τῆς ἐκκλησίας), the wisdom of God (σοφία τοῦ Θεοῦ) in its rich variety (ἡ πολυποίκιλος) might now be made known (ἵνα γνωρισθῇ νῦν) to the rulers (ταῖς ἀρχαῖς) and authorities (καὶ ταῖς ἐξουσίαις) in the heavenly places (ἐν τοῖς ἐπουρανίοις).”  Only this Ephesian letter used this unique word πολυποίκιλος, that means differing colors, much varied, or manifold.  Paul explained the rich various elements of the wisdom of God is now known by the heavenly rulers and authorities.  The knowledge of God’s varied wise plan for all here on earth comes through the church or the community of believers in Jesus Christ.  Do you want to know God’s plan for you?
