(THE WORD OF GOD FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD )

NOW IF I COULD GET A BAPTIST AMEN -A BORN AGAIN BELIEVER PRAISE GOD AND A BETHESDA MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH HALLELUJAH

I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT (NOW UNTO HIM THAT IS ABLE )

MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS

THE WRITER OF THIS LETTER BEFORE US

IS NONE OTHER THAN THE APOSTLE PAUL

PAUL THE SON OF A PHARISEE

WHO WAS REARED IN TARSUS THE CAPITAL CITY OF CILICIA

ATTENDED THE FINEST SCHOOL OF TARSUS WHERE HE LEARN THE TRADE OF A TENT MAKER

AT THE AGE OF 13 HE WAS SENT TO JERUSALEM TO SIT AT THE FEET GAMALIEL

WHERE HE LEARN THE HEBREW SCRIPTURE

EARLY CHURCH HISTORY REVEALS THAT PAUL WAS VERY STUDIOUS

FOR HE COULD QUOTE THE 1ST FIVE BOOKS OF THE LAW VERSE BY VERSE

COULD EVEN SPEAK IN 14 DIFFERENT LANUAGES AND HAD MASTERED 7

BUT EVEN THOUGH HE HAD ALL THAT EDUCATION HE STILL HAD ONE PROBLEM

AND THAT WAS WHEN HE WENT DOWN THE DAMASCUS ROAD HE DID`NT KNOW WHO JESUS WAS

BUT AIN`T IT GOOD NEWS

I SAY AIN`T IT GOOD NEWS

THAT WE SERVE A GOD WHO CAN TAKE WHAT THE DEVIL HAS MEANT FOR BAD

AND TURN IT AROUND AND MAKE IT WORK FOR OUR GOOD

CAN I BORROW A SKINNY MINUTE AND TELL YOU WHAT I`M TALKING ABOUT

YOU SEE WHEN HE WENT TO DAMASCUS HE WAS A AIN`T

BUT WHEN HE LEFT HE WAS A TRANSFORMED SAINT

PAUL WRITES THIS LETTER TO THE CHURCH AT EPHESUS

WHILE UNDER HOUSE ARREST IN ROME

AND HE WAS`NT UNDER HOUSE ARREST

FOR RAPE – ROBBERY OR MURDER

BUT HE WAS UNDER HOUSE ARREST FOR TELLING OTHERS ABOUT THE GOODNESS OF JESUS

AND HE WRITES THIS LETTER TO ENCOURAGE THE CHURCH AT EPHESUS IN THERE WALK WITH GOD

FOR THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND THE NATURE AND THE PURPOSE OF THE CHURCH

AND ALL 6 CHAPTER OF THIS LETTER IS A BLESSING FROM GOD

THAT IS DIVIDED INTO 2 SECTIONS

YOU SEE CHAPTERS 1-2-3 ARE DOCTRINAL

AND CHAPTERS 4-5-6 ARE PRACTICAL

BUT THE 1ST 3 CHAPTERS ARE KNOWN AS A THEOLOGICAL GOLDMINE

BECAUSE PAUL REVEALS TO THE CHURCH

HOW GOD IS ONE IN ESSENCE

AND TRIUNE IN PERSONALITY

IN OTHER WORDS

HE TELLS US ABOUT A FATHER WITH A PLAN

A SON WHO REDEEMS

AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO FILLS

BY LETTING US KNOW THAT GOD HAD US ON HIS MIND BEFORE THE EARTH HAD AND AXIS

AND THE MOON HAD A GLOW

GOD HAD US ON THE RADAR OF HIS REDEMPTIVE LOVE

THEN HE SHOWS US THE WORK OF THE SON

BY SAYING WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GRACE

PAUL LETS US KNOW THAT

JESUS HUNG - BLEED- DIED

WAS PLACE IN A BORROWED TOMB

GOT UP THE 3RD DAY MORNING

AND NOW HAS RULE --REGENCY AND SHALL RETURN

CAN I GIVE IT TO YOU IN RETRANSLATION MODE

JESUS PAID A DEBT HE DID NOT OWE

A DEBT WE COULD NOT PAY

THEN HE TELLS US ABOUT THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

BY LETTING US KNOW WE ARE SEAL UNTO THE DAY OF REDEMPTION

BECAUSE YOU DO KNOW

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

BEING SEAL BY THE SPIRIT AND BEING FILL WITH THE SPIRIT

BECAUSE YOU CAN BE SEAL AND NOT FILL

BUT YOU CAN`T BE FILL AND NOT SEAL

BECAUSE THE THE SEALING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT HAPPENS ONCE AND FOR ALL

BUT THE FILLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT HAPPENS OVER AND OVER AGAIN

*********************************

IN CHAPTER 2

HE LETS US KNOW HOW SIN WORKS AGAINST US

BUT HOW GOD -WORK FOR US --IN US AND THROUGH US

**********************************

IN CHAPTER 3 PAUL PRAISE GOD FOR THE CHURCH BEING STEWARDS OF THE GOSPEL

THEN HE PRAYS

HE PRAYS FOR GOD TO STRENGHTEN THE INNER MAN AND THERE FAITH

THAT WE WOULD BE ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN LOVE

AND BE FILL WITH THE FULLNESS OF GOD

THEN PAUL MAKES A THEOLOGICAL DECLARATION

AND THIS WHERE OUR TEXT WILL BEGIN

PAUL SAYS

20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

HE ENDS HIS PRAYER WITH PRAISE AND GIVE THE DOXOLGY

IN OTHER WORDS HE GIVES GOD THE GLORY

AND I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU BETHESDA
