Ephesians - Part 4

The lesson on October 27, 2013 was part 4 of the "Ephesians" study and covered verses 7-11 but first reviewed the previous lessons. The three W's were covered again showing the Will of the Father, the Work of the Son, and the Witness of the Spirit showed there was a work going on in the Trinity which was before the foundation of the world.  There are also three blessings that go along with the three W's.  Where the gospel is preached, the next step is to grow on right division, which will allow you to see the meat of scripture.  We reviewed the carnal blessings in scripture that were given to Israel and then to the Gentiles in the New Testament during Acts because the Gentile was grafted into the olive tree of Israel.  After Acts, PAul the prisoner of the Lord, revealed the Mystery, which was a secret that was hid in God before the foundation of the world.  This is our calling for today and contains all spiritual blessing in heavenly places.  With every spiritual blessings given to us today, this does not include carnal blessings of the pre-Acts 28 calling that people try to pull forward into the present age. Carnal blessings come from hard work! The scripture reading was in Ephesians 1:7-11 KJV "7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:"
