Thank you Abba Father for blessing us IN CHRIST with every spiritual blessing IN the heavenly places. I do not cease to give thanks, remembering you in prayers, that the God of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may KNOW the hope you are called to, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His Power in us who believe, according to the working of His great Might, which he accomplished IN CHRIST when he raised Him from the dead and made Him sit at his Right hand in the heavenly places, far Above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that can be named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come; and He has put all things under His feet and made Him the Head over all things for the church, His Body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all (Ephesians 1:3, 16-23).
God who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which He loves us, made us alive TOGETHER WITH CHRIST; raised up WITH CHRIST, and made to sit WITH HIM in the heavenly places IN CHRIST. This is a Gift of God, not by what you do but by what Jesus did. Jesus creates IN HIMSELF: one new creature in place of two, reconciling us both to God in ONE BODY through the Cross. THROUGH HIM we both have access in ONE SPIRIT to the Father, a holy temple in our body on earth; a dwelling place of God IN THE SPIRIT (Ephesians 2:1-22).
Steward God’s Grace; receive the revelation by the Spirit by the mystery of Christ, the mystery of the gospel, the mystery of Christ’s religion; stewarding the mystery; partakers of the promise of Christ Jesus through the gospel (Ephesians 3:2-6; 1 Corinthians 4:1). The Gift of God’s Grace is given by the working of His Power; see the Plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; the eternal Purpose realized IN CHRIST, in whom we have boldness and confidence of ACCESS to God our Father at the Throne above the highest heavens, through our FAITH in Christ, so do not lose HEART (Ephesians 3:7-13).
For this reason I bow my knees before our Father, that according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with might THROUGH HIS SPIRIT in your inner man, your spirit man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through FAITH; rooted and grounded in Love, having the Power to comprehend with all the saints the breadth, height, length, and depth of God’s Love, and to know the Love of Christ beyond knowledge, that you may be FILLED with all the fullness of God, whose POWER AT WORK IN YOU is able to do far more abundantly than you ask or think, to give God the glory (Ephesians 3:14-21)
Maintain unity OF THE SPIRIT in the bond of peace; NOT in unity with those who are OF A DIFFERENT SPIRIT than the Living Holy Just Righteous Pure Spirit of our God and Father and HIS Christ. There are many counterfeit and false christs, idols, elemental spirits of the universe, philosophical ideologies, traditions of men and doctrines of demons, and servants of satan disguised as servants of righteousness. IN CHRIST there is one Body and one Spirit, the True Living Church, one hope that belongs to your CALL, one Lord, and faith, one baptism of Jesus that unites you with God by the Holy Spirit and fire; one God and Father of all IN CHRIST, who is above all and through all of Christ in you, and in all who are IN CHRIST. Apart from CHRIST is nothing of God. The Truth is found in Jesus, a person not an ideology, so be taught IN HIM. Put off your old nature of this world and put on the Christ LIKE garment of light, fire, Spirit, salvation and righteousness, eternally betrothed to Christ: joined to Christ, yoked to Christ as a true yokefellow, learning Christ, not more things of this fallen, broken, dark world system. God’s Plans and Purposes for human beings are FAR DIFFERENT than the world system’s plans and purposes that may sound “good” but harm us. Jesus is the Great Physician whom NEVER HARMS. Put on the new nature found IN CHRIST, revealed by the HOLY SPIRIT, who creates in you after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:3-24).
Take NO PART in the works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is a shame to even speak of the things the world system does in SECRET. Be careful how you walk, be wise, understanding what the Will of the Lord is; be FILLED with the HOLY Spirit with Christ as the Head of your body, who sanctifies, cleanses, and washes with the Water of the Word to present you holy and spotless as a bride; the two become one flesh when united with Christ. This mystery is a profound one! (Ephesians 5:3-32).
Finally be strong IN THE LORD and in the strength of HIS MIGHT. Put on the whole armor of God to be able to STAND AGAINST the wiles, schemes, devices of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood but against the world system leaders of THIS PRESENT DARKNESS, against the spiritual HOSTS of wickedness. Therefore TAKE the whole armor of God, that you may be able to WITHSTAND in these evil days, and having done all, to STAND. Stand therefore, in Truth, Righteousness the Gospel of Peace, Faith to quench the fiery darts shot at you, the helmet of Salvation to protect your mind, and the Sword of the SPIRIT, which is the Word of God. Pray at ALL TIMES in the Spirit; keep ALERT with all perseverance, and utterance given to open your mouth BOLDLY to proclaim the mystery of the gospel (Ephesians 6:10-19).
