9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself: 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth - in Him.
It is absolutely clear from reading these verses that the mystery of God's will and His purpose is to gather together everything in the universe in one with Christ in God's time and His order. This agrees with the key scripture Colossians 1:15-20. Many are Called but Few are Chosen Matthew 22:14
"For many are called, but few are chosen."
Apostle Paul knew that only a few Israelites would be saved before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, and that the vast majority of his fellow Israelites would remain under the Abrahamic Curse of unbelief, cut off from their natural Holy Olive Tree. Most 'Christians' are also under the Abrahamic Curse of unbelief because of their belief in the doctrine of hell and Replacement Theology. In Chapter 7 'God's Purpose for Israel' we gave full details on the Abrahamic Blessing and Curse.
Most Christians are called but they are not chosen to enter God's Millennial Kingdom as the Bride of Christ. They are enlightened, understand the gospel of Grace, and they even have zeal for God. However, they do not have the God given faith to believe in the full gospel of Jesus Christ, that God is indeed the Saviour of ALL people.
Only a few Elect from the nation of Israel and from the Gentile nations are called and chosen by God to be the Bride of Christ to enter the Millennial Kingdom of God on this earth, at Christ's return.
On the Great White Throne Judgement Day, many Gentile 'Christians' like many Jews will be shocked to learn that they have been cut off from the Holy Olive Tree of Israel. They will be shocked to learn that they were never part of the Bride of Christ, and that Christ never knew them as a husband knows his wife.
