His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The eternal purpose of God involved the uniting of Jew and Gentile, not only in the Church which is his Body, but in a spiritual house, a holy temple in the Lord, a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. (Eph.2:19-22).
All this will have a more glorious expression in our eternal home.
