People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 6:23


Eph 6:23,24 Peace [be] to the brethren, etc. As was his custom he closes with a benediction. Compare those of the preceding Epistles. NOTE.--Some have urged that the absence of individual salutations is a proof that this letter could not have been addressed to the Ephesians where he was so well acquainted. The same argument might apply to the Corinthian, Galatian and Philippian letters also, and indeed his letters to all the churches which he had founded. It rather implies that his acquaintances were so numerous that he could hardly have space to single out individuals, and sent his personal salutations by the messengers. Besides, there are reasons for the opinion that the Ephesian letter was intended also for other churches of "Asia".

    Nathaniel; You say good words, that are so important! As to the efficacy of prayer of a righteous man; in Daniel 9 the man of God was reflecting on the Scriptures and praying and confessing and fasting about the things he read; and while he was doing these things there was great battle in the spirit world of the heavens for the sake of bringing God's answer and understanding to Daniel.
  • Nathaniel A. Omonayajo
    In view of various challenges facing our generation, this chapter has given us an answer - "put on the armour of God..." Children of God all over the world must rise up to the challenges through power of prayer. Victory is certain. Jesus is Lord!
  • Mary
    Paul was in prison when he wrote Ephesians. Tychicus was there with him, and it is a blessing that he was. Paul told us how to fight against the evil spirits and he even gave us instructions on how to dress. Putting on the whole armour, it is all there verses 11 through 18. I love it. If we follow this advice we cannot miss.
  • Cheryl
    So when God form man from the dust of Earth and breath the breath of life in him he did not say man was a spirit but upon death our life breath returns to him when did he say man had separate form other than one he gave us
