PAUL TEACHES EPHESIANS

Posted on August 6, 2021 at 3:25 AM


                               


My friends, Paul was such an inspiring teacher!! He was on fire to bring forth the messages and mysteries of God's Word. I love Ephesians which he actually wrote while imprisoned for his faith. I invite you to just settle down with me and let’s share some of Ephesians 3~


Ephesians 3:6-13

The Divine Mystery

3 Beloved friends, because of my love for Jesus Christ, I am now His prisoner for the sake of all of you who are not Jews, 2 so that you will hear the gospel that God has entrusted to me to share with you. 3 For this wonderful mystery, which I briefly described, was given to me by divine revelation, 4 so that whenever you read it you will be able to understand my revelation and insight into the secret mystery of the Messiah.


Paul did not mind suffering for his faith, so long as he could spread the richness of the Gospel. Here he reveals the mystery that was hidden through the ages:

 

5 There has never been a generation that has been given the detailed understanding of this glorious and divine mystery until now. He kept it a secret until this generation. God is revealing it only now to his sacred apostles and prophets by the Holy Spirit.



                                                         



So it is not only the Jewish people who are privileged to know God, but non-Jewish believers as well. That would be a shock to the people of the time. Now all believers can become one with the Body of Christ, one with God!


6 Here’s the secret: The gospel of grace has made you, non-Jewish believers, into co-heirs of his promise through your union with Him. And you have now become members of his body—one with the Anointed One!


One thing that becomes evident is Paul's humility. He is careful to give God the glory, calling himself the least significant. I believe it was because of Paul's humble spirit that God was able to use him so powerfully! 



7–8 I have been made a messenger of this wonderful news by the gift of grace that works through me. Even though I am the least significant of all His holy believers, this grace-gift was imparted when the manifestation of his power came upon me. Grace alone empowers me so that I can boldly preach this wonderful message to non-Jewish people, sharing with them the unfading,[a] inexhaustible riches of Christ, which are beyond comprehension.



Paul was eager to spread the Gospel to those laid out by God's plan. 


9 My passion is to enlighten every person to this divine mystery. It was hidden for ages past until now, and kept a secret in the heart of God, the Creator of all. 10 The purpose of this was to unveil before every throne and rank of angelic orders iln the heavenly realm God’s full and diverse wisdom revealed through the church.[b] 11 This perfectly wise plan was destined from eternal ages and fulfilled completely in our Lord Jesus Christ, so that now 12 we have boldness through Him,[c] and free access as kings[d] before the Father, because of our complete confidence in Christ’s faithfulness.

 

God has a good plan for each one of us as well as for each nation. As we fulfill the plan in our lives we have Gods help working for us and even inside of us. He prepares our lives as we progress through the years to become whom He created us to be. As we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, His guidance is active in us all the time ~ every moment. He sends the Third Person of the Hoy Trinity, His Holy Spirit to actually indwell us.

 

    

                                                      


We can develop a personal relationship with Him, and come to love Him as He loves us. 'Knowing God' is a life long journey. We will never know Him completely; part of the joy is discovering His many attributes and characteristics and mysteries. We have three Persons in one God; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit make up our One God. See? Mysteries. The human mind cannot comprehend  all of them; but as I said, it's as we grow, discovering and understanding them brings joy to our hearts.


                                                              


Come choose to build relationship with our wonderful God!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
