Pleroma - The Fulness of God

Derek McCammonWhen approaching scripture, you can do it dispensationally which looks at the different periods of administration of God. Yet, there is another way to look at an overview of God’s plan and that is identified in Ephesians 1:8-10 (KJV) which states “Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 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”. This audio series studies the fullness of God as He accomplished His purpose in Christ.

Pleroma - Part 3. When you study the “fullness”, the breadth of it covers from before the foundation of the world through the ages to come and beyond . One of the problems we have when studying “the fulness”, is we often focus on the present rather than understanding the big picture.

This is when Christ reveals through the Apostle Paul the start of another gap which He calls The Mystery.
