The Gathering together of the Church ! Eph 1:9-11 9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: This gathering together was also predicted by and was the Hope of the OT Church, for example hear Jacob Gen 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Shiloh is Christ, and His coming was in the fulness of time Gal 4:4 4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son[Shiloh], made of a woman, made under the law, And by His Peace Making Cross, He gathers the People under One Head. The word Shiloh from Gen 49:10 means: I.he whose it is, that which belongs to him, tranquillity, Some hebrew scholars render it to mean the peaceable one, peace maker, Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. And this Peace gathers together in One all the People of God Eph 2:14-19 14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: 17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; This is what Jacob foresaw centuries before Gen 49:10 by Shiloh, the Head of the Church !
