Eph 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ. God's power wrought in Christ in the tomb so that he came forth living. At his own right hand. The Scriptures represent Christ at God's right hand. See Mr 16:19 Heb 8:1 10:12 12:2 Col 3:1. His seat there indicates his glory, and also that the work of redemption.

    EPHESIANS 1:13 in whom you also trusted after that you heard the word of truth the gospel of your salvation in whom also after that you believed you were sealed with that holy spirit of promise 2 CORINTHIANS 1:21 NOW HE WHICH ESTABLISHETH US WITH YOU IN CHRIST AND HATH ANOINTED US IS GOD --1:22--WHO HATH ALSO SEALED US AND GIVEN THE EARNEST OF THE SPIRIT IN OUR HEARTS

    Ephesians 1:3 answers the universal questions posed by Ecclesiastes 1:14
  • Robert E Hutchinson
    Where in the Bible does say that We must be born again and again and again. Does it not say Once saved always saved, and what about the verse where Jesus says, no Man can pluck You out of My hand. In Roman's it says Who so ever SHALL call upon the Name of Jesus SHALL be saved, not again and again and again, etc.
