People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:10


Eph 1:10 That. He now states the mystery which God had revealed. In the dispensation of the fulness of times. In the last dispensation which came in the fullness of time; when the times were full, or ripe. "Fullness of time" is often applied to the period of Christ's coming. See Ga 4:4 Heb 1:2 9:10 1Pe 1:20. He might gather together in one all things in Christ. That the scattered families and tribes of men, both Jews and Gentiles, should all be gathered and united under one head, Christ. Nay, not only men, but angels, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth, all should be united under Christ as head, so that he should be "all and in all" (Col 3:11). See Re 5:13. Compare Mt 28:18 and many other passages which are parallel in thought.

    when they asked what we should pray, he taught them the Lords pray Matthew 6:9-13, we prayer this daily, it teaches us how to worship our Holy Father, how to seek for daily bread, wisdom, how to forgive us our sins daily how to forgive ours who sin against you turn the other cheek, deliver us from the evil one for he is the power that we seek from him, and he is the glory let his kingdom come Amen

    Scripture says God is male, "Father Son Holy Spirit. The 3 are one. When God revealed himself to me I saw the face of Jesus every time I closed my eyes for 2 years. I can assure you God is male. Jesus said, "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father also." Jesus also referred to the Holy Spirit as 'He'. God has created female beings so he understand both male and female, but he is not a woman.
