God is Wound up About His Son

AdultSonFatherGod is wound up about His Son and His Son’s destiny, so how can things be winding down? Religion leaves us to think that this whole thing is about us and our getting to heaven. The reason God gets wound up about people is because of the part of His Son’s destiny that they play, not because He would rather have them playing a harp than roasting like a marshmallow. Paul shows this plainly: Eph 1:8  “Which He lavished upon us in every kind of wisdom and understanding (practical insight and prudence),  9  Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him, 10  [He planned] for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, [both] things in heaven and things on the earth.” (Amplified) It is descriptively put in the NASB in v.10 like this: “…an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ.”
