Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 2:14


2:14 For he is our peace - Not only as he purchased it, but as he is the very bond and centre of union. He who hath made both - Jews and gentiles, one church. The apostle describes, The conjunction of the gentiles with Israel, #Eph 2:14|,15. And, The conjunction of both with God, #Eph 2:15 |- 18. Each description is subdivided into two parts. And the former part of the one, concerning abolishing the enmity, answers the former part of the other; the latter part of the one, concerning the evangelical decrees, the latter part of the other. And hath broken down the middle wall of partition - Alluding to that wall of old, which separated the court of Israel from the court of the gentiles. Such a wall was the ceremonial law, which Christ had now taken away.

    Jesus has answered many of my prayers over the past few years and he is faithful to all of his promises, yet we must always defer to his timing. Jesus bless!

    disciple"the brethren in the beginning" KNEW God.Using discernment they KNEW the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. The "vast multitudes" are on the broad way.If someone is "starved to death"it is because God has not given them understanding of the knowledge."If we walk in the light as He is in the light,we have fellowship one with another,through the blood of Jesus Christ.

    He delivered me from a terrible debt. I did not know what to do, but I knew how to pray. So I prayed and He made His word manifest and paid my debt.
    How He sorts my problems is inexplicable.
    There is an issue I have at hand now, and I have committed it unto His mighty hands and am believing that it is already settled.
    This God is Jehovah El-shaddai; He has everything in abundance...praise the Lord
  • A disciple
    "In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit." BUILDED TOGETHER! How do we not know today what unity and grace and knowledge that our brethren in the beginning knew? How do the vast multitudes of gentle believers seem to be starved to death for understanding even of the first basics of knowledge, and find mostly contention and divisions instead of fellowship?
  • Lu2677
