Ephesians 1: 4-6.

Before the foundation of the world… We were In Christ… We were In love… We were In The Beloved

For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 1 Corinthians 13;9-12

Now we are a child, We speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; we do childish things.

Now we know partially and we prophesy partially. Now we see God dimly.

For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

Romans 8:22-23

Now we are like a child waiting to be born from Creation.

Now we are like a child who awaits his adoption.

We await the full redemption of our body, The Body of Christ.

“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.” Revelation 19:6-9

First we will be the wife of Christ the Lamb

For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into 'one' and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that 'in Himself' He might make the two into 'one new man', thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both 'in one body' to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. AND HE CAME AND PREACHED PEACE TO YOU WHO WERE FAR AWAY, AND PEACE TO THOSE WHO WERE NEAR; for through Him we both have our access 'in one Spirit' to the Father. Ephesians 2:13-18

Both Jesus and the Church will be as One in The One Body of Christ.

Both Jew and Gentile will be as One in The One Body of Christ. The Body of Christ will be The One New Man.

He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:22-23

So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. Ephesians 4:28 -32

We will become One Flesh with Christ the Lamb.

We will be the fullness of Christ The Son of God.

We will be the completion of Christ The Son of God.

He made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ, with regard to the fulfilment of the times [that is, the end of history, the climax of the ages]—to bring all things together in Christ, [both] things in the heavens and things on the earth. Ephesians 1:9-10

In the dispensation of the fullness of times He will gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth, even in Him. Ephesians 1:10

Not only will we become One Flesh with Christ the Lamb, but All Things will come together and become One, in Christ.

Equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of 'the body of Christ; until 'we all' attain to the 'unity and oneness' of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to 'a mature man', to the measure of the stature which belongs to 'the fullness of Christ'. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom 'the whole body', being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of 'the body' for the building up of itself in love. Ephesians 4:11-16

We all will be One in The Body of Christ. We will know what it is to be The Son of God. The Body of Christ will be The One New Mature Man and we will be fully grown into Christ.

Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3: 1-3

Our Body, the body of Christ will be transformed to be like the glorified body of Jesus Christ.

The Father has bought back Our Body, the body of Christ and we will be adopted by the Father.

When we became A Man we saw our Father face to face and we knew him fully just as He has always known us.
