Discussion for Ephesians 6

  • A disciple
    Wayne; I think we tried to help you with this before! Paul is not your Saviour! Paul didn't invent the Glad Tidings of Christ; nor was he teaching anything that wasn't before already in the words of the Prophets. Why do you hang on something that causes worthless arguments? Read in Corinthians what Paul himself says about those who put too much on being his disciples: God is the Saviour and Lord!

    A Disciple, Paul calls it "my gospel" Romans 2:16.

    "But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore." Exodus 14:29-30 One of the great signs for us to look to for understanding the way we take with Jesus, is the salvation and deliverance of Israel from Egypt, and the consequent humbling and destruction of Pharaoh and his army. The Day of our deliverance and salvation will be the same Day that God executes judgment on the pride and the idols of the wicked. Our very salvation is the rebuke of everything they have used to build their world, and all they trust in to support their delusions. The things that the evil ones count on to be our inescapable ruin shall be the very things that God will make our deliverance for ever out of their hands. "Stand still and see the salvation of the LORD with you!"

    "Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right." Ephesians 6:1 In the context of this part of the Epistle on the subject of Submitting ourselves to, and honoring and loving one another whether it is the married couple, the parents and their children, the servants and their masters, the community and their rulers the measure of our love for Jesus and our obedience, is in how we walk in truth and love toward those in our most ordinary relations and everyday life. Every kind of relationship whether with family, friends, neighbors or strangers, we need to learn their important relation with our walk with God, and should be regarded as the way we will actually do what the Lord says. If we read our Bibles, attend meetings and fellowship, witness to others, we don't want to be a "Street Angel, and a Home Devil!" In other words, appearing to be a devout and holy Christian outside the home, but a terrible selfish monster toward your family at home!
