People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:19


Eph 1:19 The exceeding greatness of his power. He prays that they may have greater knowledge of three things: (1) Of eternal life (the hope); (2) of the glorious inheritance, and (3) of God's mighty power towards believers.

    God said you must rightly devide the word, and we are also in the dispensation of Grace, the entire Bible is written for us, but not every verse is addressed to us, or written about us, if you read the red letters of Jesus Christ, then read what He taught after he paid our sin debt, and you really knew how to read and teach the truth, you would not teach the way you do, Ephesians 2:8 it was hidden
