    To Bible Reader on Eph.4:8 - When I posted this - I just assumed vs. 9
  • Bible Reader


    Irene123 you quoted
    Eph. 4:8 - This is a ref. to Jesus descending into hell to rescue the O.T. saints who died in faith, 
    I was wandering if you meant the grave instead of hell because true saints of God living a holy separate life want be in hell. I'm not being rude just curious what you was trying to say.
  • Irene123
    Eph. 4:8 - This is a ref. to Jesus descending into hell to rescue the O.T. saints who died in faith, Jesus having the KEYS of death and hell, Rev. 1:18. The 'gifts' to men came in Acts 2:38; the MAIN gift was the Holy Ghost from which came all the gifts of - healing, casting out devils, teachers, pastors, etc. Line upon line,.....precept upon precept, Isa. 28:10.

    V. 26 - I had read this verse many times and - I knew it was possible to do, to be angry (really angry, not just miffed) and sin not - because the Bible says so. BUT - I just couldn't imagine how. I found out how a couple of days ago. My husband is anti God. He was trying to be a 'mini' dictator to our FORTY-SIX yr. old son!! I told him it was our son's decision, not his. but, I didn't 'lose' it
