Discussion for Ephesians 1

  • A disciple
    Frank; We are in a time of increasing darkness and trouble, because so many that have heard and known the word of God have despised and rejected it; and love instead their cares and pleasures in this life, than to be of the truth. This is the narrow way that Jesus spoke of, and the very reason most choose to stay on the broad way because they are ashamed or afraid or simply love their sins more.

    1 CORINTHIANS 10:4 AND DID ALL DRINK THE SAME SPIRITUAL DRINK FOR THEY DRANK OF THAT SPIRITUAL ROCK THAT FOLLOWED THEM AND THAT --- ROCK WAS CHRIST --- 10:9 --- NEITHER LET US TEMPT CHRIST AS SOME OF THEM ALSO TEMPTED AND WERE DESTROYED OF SERPENTS --- 1 TIMOTHY 2:5 FOR THERE IS ONE GOD AND ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN --- THE MAN JESUS CHRIST ---
  • Cephas
    He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
  • Pbear

  • Frank Velasco
    Blessed us... genuine believers. Do we believe this, or we merely exist, behave and conduct ourselves so mediocrity as to be outside of His blessing? In our day and time, I am certain it's the latter, not the former.
