People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:17


Eph 1:17 That. This introduces the things for which he prayed God in their behalf. The Father of glory. The source of all spiritual glory. Give unto you the Spirit of wisdom. A gift of the Spirit. See PNT "1Co 12:8". Divine wisdom works wisdom in believers. And revelation in the knowledge of him. The Spirit that reveals a knowledge of God and spiritual mysteries. This Spirit would enable them to better comprehend the "mystery" of God, the divine plans for human redemption in a better knowledge of him.

    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.
