    thank you lord for saving me lord and washing my sins away

    Praise God for sealing us with His Holy Spirit when we were born again as stated in vs.13 of chapter 1. Also God through Paul shows us inspired words to pray over fellow believers in verses 17-23...notice Paul in verse 16 says he makes mention or speaks words ...and there is a [ ;] semicolon after the word prayers, then in verse 17 he begins what he prays for over his fellow believers. Praise God!

    I believe that Ephesians is the definition of the salvation method of all the believers. Who believe that Jesus Christ is the one true God, and the creator of all the people of the Earth, and Angels, and all things from the foundation of the world. Called to be saints by receiving the spirit of God in them-with the Holy Ghost of God. They that worship Him, must worship him in spirit and in truth.

    J they do love death, which is to say the devil. They, the ones that went against Jesus are but not all of those wrote of in Matt. 13 vs 36 to 44 speaking of the tares the wicked one sends to earth. At the attempted overthrow by Satan when he tried to steal the mercy seat that he was to guard those followed Satan.
  • Word
    Bible reader that's true and God is a righteous Judge so when the Great White Throne Judgment occurrs it is your actions and what you did is what condemns a person or if good they get good rewards. If one truly is sorry and that sin is heart felt because God knows and one ask for forgiveness it will be cleared through Christ.
  • Bible reader
    JESUS loves everyone NOT the sin that the individual does.
