Ephesians 4:7-13 TLV
But to each one of us grace was given in keeping with the measure of Messiah’s gift.
Therefore it says, “When He went up on high, He led captive a troop of captives and gave gifts to his people.”
Now what does “He went up” mean, except that He first went down to the lower regions of the earth?
The One who came down is the same One who went up far above all the heavens, in order to fill all things.
He Himself gave some to be emissaries, some as prophets, some as proclaimers of the Good News, and some as shepherds and teachers—
to equip the kedoshim for the work of service, for building up the body of Messiah.
This will continue until we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of Ben-Elohim—to mature adulthood, to the measure of the stature of Messiah’s fullness.
