And I also say to thee, that thou art a rock, and upon this rock I will build my assembly, and gates of Hades shall not prevail against it; and I will give to thee the keys of the reign of the heavens, and whatever thou mayest bind upon the earth shall be having been bound in the heavens, and whatever thou mayest loose upon the earth shall be having been loosed in the heavens. Mathew 16, 18-19
Which He wrought in the Christ, having raised him out of the dead, and did set [him] at His right hand in the heavenly [places], far above all principality, and authority, and might, and lordship, and every name named, not only in this age, but also in the coming one; and all things He did put under his feet, and did give him — head over all things to the assembly, which is his body, the fulness of Him who is filling the all in all. Ephesians 2, 20-23
And to cause all to see what [is] the fellowship of the secret that hath been hid from the ages in God, who the all things did create by Jesus Christ, that there might be made known now to the principalities and the authorities in the heavenly [places], through the assembly, the manifold wisdom of God, according to a purpose of the ages, which He made in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ephesians 3, 9-11
The new creation of God, which was birthed through the event of the death of Christ, on the cross of Calvary.
The new creature in time, which was hidden in God before the ages began, was revealed in the death of Christ.
The new creation of the God man in Christ. This new cooperate broken body, birthed out of the living glorified God.
This new creation called the Church, the called out ones, whos destiny is universal in scope.
For if the powers of the air really understood what the cross meant for them, then they would have never crucified the Lord of glory.
The cross was the beginning of a new kind of creation. This new creation of humanity, called the church of the living God, was created through the agony and suffering of Calvary.
Out of the grave came this new cooperate man, whos very DNA is the same as the seed, which was planted.
God became humanity, so humanity could become divinity? The divine nature of the Lord of glory was released on the cross, Bone of his bone, flesh of his flesh
This cooperate Son of the new creation, which was the mystery revealed, to the cosmic rulers of this age. This new divinely elected chosen vessel, which came out of this broken world of humanity.
These cosmic powers, rulers, where shocked and stunned when they realized what happened at Calvary.
The cross was the death blow to these cosmic rulers of creation. They were witnesses to the birth of a new kind of a creature, which is called the church of the most high God. Sons of a new kind of a humanity, whos destiny is to sit as kings and priests, over the cosmos of creation, judging the works of Gods hand.
God is not going to destroy this world and cosmos. God is going to renew his good creation.
The whole creation waits for the full adoption of these Sons of God, who will judge the angels?

For if the powers of the air really understood what the cross meant for them, then they would have never crucified the Lord of glory. I love that line. Indeed, the cross was the death blow to the rulers of this age.
