    Ephesians 4 vs 25,29,31 our words express the true conditions of our hearts.

    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.

    Ephesians 4:29 clearly tells us that the same mouth that we say our prayer, eat and drink we should not be using vulgarities and bad mouth others. Its basic common sense. This verse has wake me up. God bless

    May our God help us to use words that build up, not destroy, other people.
  • Irene123
    I like Sharon's comment on v. 5 - AMEN! I love the whole chapter. Verse 26 - since I r'cvd the Holy Ghost - I don't get angry. It just takes too much energy. It's so much easier to go into prayer mode. Anger just keeps feeding on itself (and feeding on your body). I'm not saying I won't get angry one day, I am human - still.
