Intent, and Purpose?

The word “intent” is not the same thing as “purpose” To have “intent” one is required to have “action”, and before there is an "action" there requires a "purpose" for that action!

Intent produces an action towards a purpose. Intent and purpose are communicated through “words” “God sends his word, and we are healed, and delivered from our destruction....” (Ps 107:20) The intent produced action, to send his Word for the purpose of healing, and deliverance from destruction!

Before any “action” can take place it requires a purpose first so that the intent can work towards that purpose! “In the beginning was the Word.....” (John 1:1)
The word, “Word” can also be translated as “purpose, and or reason”

The bible tells us the “purpose” of why everything exists!!!

John 1:3 ALL THINGS WERE MADE BY HIM, and without him was not anything made that was made.

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: ALL THINGS WERE CREATED BY HIM, AND FOR HIM:

Everything in existence whether visible, or invisible whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:, were created by Jesus Christ, and they were created FOR JESUS CHRIST!!!!!

Jesus Christ (the Word) is the purpose of why all things exist!!! The “intent” which produced an "action" was accomplished by God giving (sending) us his Son to be the savior of the world!
“God so loved the world that HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. ” (John 3:16)

The scriptures clearly tell us that the "purpose" for the salvation of man, and in how it would be accomplished was already prepared, and set into motion before the world came into existence!

2Tim 1:8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partakers of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
2Tim 1:9 WHO HATH SAVED US, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, BUT ACCORDING TO HIS OWN PURPOSE and grace, WHICH WAS GIVEN US IN CHRIST JESUS BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN,
2Tim 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

Notice: Salvation was the "purpose" found in Christ Jesus (the Word) before the world began!!!
Salvation can not be received until the "light" of that salvation is brought to light through the Gospel! The "intent" of the Gospel (the good news) was to bring the "purpose" of salvation to man!

Salvation has come to all those who have made the choice to receive the gift of faith which comes from hearing the Gospel that gives "access" to salvation that is by grace, (Eph 2:8)(Rom 5:2) Now, today God has a "new" purpose for man! God's new purpose for man is NOT new to himself but only to us as it was hidden in God from the beginning of the world!!

Eph 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
Eph 3:9 And TO MAKE ALL MEN SEE WHAT IS THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE MYSTERY, WHICH FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD HATH BEEN HID IN GOD, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
Eph 3:10 TO THE INTENT that NOW UNTO THE PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS IN HEAVENLY PLACES MIGHT BE KNOWN BY THE CHURCH THE MANIFOLD WISDOM OF GOD,
Eph 3:11 ACCORDING TO THE ETERNAL PURPOSE WHICH HE PURPOSED IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD:

The Lord God's new "purpose" for man is that from now on the limitless, vast, endless Wisdom of God is going to be made known through his body the Church to every principality, and powers in the heavenly places forever, and this was according to his eternal "purpose" in Christ Jesus!!!

The Church (body of Christ) intent (our action) is to spread the ultimate multifaceted (multicolor) Wisdom of God throughout all the ages to every spiritual being in heavenly places through Jesus Christ! (The purpose for creation)
