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.

Discussion for Ephesians 1

  • Ray321
    Romans 15:16 16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost. What Paul did back then was very dangerous, because of the higher up Jews did not believe in the Gentiles joining together with Christ. So Paul ministered to Gentiles and Peter ministered to Jews
  • A disciple
    According to some well meaning, but perhaps less than honest or maybe inexperienced fellow-Saints; by simply reciting verses and standing rigidly to a determined position, that somehow makes them having attained. But why then does the Lord solemnly warn us to Take heed, Watch and Pray always, Let no one deceive you? Because we need to attend to the things we have received with constant discipline.
  • A disciple
    "I am no different then Paul when I preach.." I knew a brother like that some years ago: he seemed to really think that because his name was Paul, that that was a sign from God that he was Paul. Eventually you have to get away from these kinds; they have listened to the devil, who told them, You are the ONE! Using Scriptures to smite his FELLOW-SERVANTS but not remembering the mercy he's received!
  • A disciple
    Mr. Kelly; since you seem to have no interest, but to keep telling EVERYONE ELSE that they need to quit sinning; it hardly makes sense to keep trying to reason with you. "Set them to judge who are least esteemed in the Church." Nearly every sectarian person (heretic) is full of Scriptures he uses to damn others; while being completely obtuse to the "weightier matters of the Law; mercy and faith."
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Disciple: I am no different then Paul when I preach. 2nd Cor 11:6] But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Disciple: get out of verse 8 in 1st John get into verse 9 confess your sin give it up. Verse 9 tells me is is just to forgive us "ALL Sins" all unrighteousness is sin. Verse 8 is where we see church stumble over. Put it in context. Verse 8 in 1st John does NOT say "if we say we have no sin which we commit everyday" John is writing to a people who want to have fellowship with him. 1st John 1:4.
