21 In [en] whom [hos] all [pas] the building [oikodome] fitly framed together [sunarmologeo] groweth [auxano] unto [eis] an holy [hagios] temple [naos] in [en] the Lord: [kurios] KJV-Interlinear
21 in whom
the whole building, being fitted together is growing into a holy temple in the
In whom, is a reference from the previous verse, to Jesus Christ. He is God. He is the cornerstone, the foundation, the written word, the total substance or reality.
The building, is the body or believers which we call the Church. This is also called the nation, and the family, and that is what is being assembled throughout history, until the end of history and these same peoples, from both genders, from all nations, from all cultures, from all races, and so forth, will live together in eternity, worshiping the same God, the same truth, living the same spiritual process, while simultaneously maintaining each individuals personality, likes, and such.
Framed together, 'sunarmologeo,' means to fit together piece by piece as a puzzle is fitted together, as any construction project is put together piece by piece, element by element, phase by phase until the entire job has been completed.
It is God who is making this assembly. It is God who is putting together all of the pieces, the Church, made up of many millions and billions and most likely trillions of believers from all of human history, until the entire body of Christ, all believers from Adam until the end of the ages, is completed. Piece by piece, believer by believer.
Unto the holy temple, defined Christianity, or all that are gathered to God through Christ. This excludes all religions, all philosophies, all opinions, all good intentions, all beliefs or even non-beliefs, except one, which is Christianity.
Jesus Christ controls history. Jesus Christ is assembling His family in preparation for eternity. Life is not man advancing through history in order to one day rule the galaxies. Life is man being given the opportunity to get himself ready, through Christ, for eternity. To ignore this opportunity, to disregard this opportunity, to do otherwise is the huge mistake of the fool.
