Ephesians 3:21 Unto (not in original) him (or, 'He is', or 'His') be ('be' not in original) glory (is – implied) in the church by (or, 'through') Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end.

    The idea is, through the endless succession of ages {from beginning and throughout all eternity}, or through all time, Christ is the glory over all principalities and powers – see verse 10. Also Romans 16:17)
