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; even in him: (Ephesians 1:10)
I’m not a universal church promoter. Language prohibits that clearly. But I must consistently deny the ultra-pendulum swing of the other direction. This verse says that He would gather all things together in Christ. (Not here, but in other places, the church is referred to as Christ’s body.) And all those things are not in one place. These are things “both which are in heaven, and which are on earth.” Again, this is not a universal church — that phrase is an oxymoron. But, it is a universal something! Something more than a future glorified church.
