Discussion for Ephesians 5:9

  • Mishael on Ephesians 5:9
    Jesus called himself The Son of Man.

    Acts 7:56

    And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

    Hebrews 2:6

    But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?

    Revelation 1:13

    And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

    Revelation 14:14

    And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

    This is the Son of Man! How can we with our unclean lips, speak His name without bowing the knee?

    It blows my brain how people do not reverence Him. Debate him. Chip away at his Deity. He is who HE said he is.

    At least Isaiah 6:1-8. We see a PROPER response to the Lord of Glory.

    Also, I spotted another LET US scripture in Isaiah 6:8.
  • Don Diala on Ephesians 5:9
    I Corinthians 6 : 9 tells us that as Christians(children of God) our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, and that the Holy Spirit actually dwells within each of us.

    When the Holy Spirit indwells a Christian this way, He manifests certain attributes which Apostle Paul calls "fruits of the Spirit" in Galatians 5 : 22. Just as a tree yields its fruits so the Holy Spirit yields those listed fruits in any Christian He indwells.

    Now, as a Christian businessman filled with the Holy Spirit for example, someone comes to you with a business proposal that is actually a scam.

    Because it is a scam it is lacking in goodness, in righteousness and in truth, it is not "acceptable unto the Lord".

    Consequently the Christian businessman will not have an inner peace thinking about this proposal. There will be this strong sense of uneasiness and he will know there is something seriously wrong with the proposed business.

    This is what I think Ephesians 5 : 9 - 10 is talking about.
  • Jaime Gutierrez on Ephesians 5:9
    The fruit of the SPIRIT is our LORD JESUS CHRIST who is righteous good and whom is the TRUTH
