Wisdom and Revelation

ephesians-1-15-23

15 This is why, since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 I never stop giving thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. 17 I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. 18 I pray that the perception of your mind may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength. 20 He demonstrated this power in the Messiah by raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His right hand in the heavens— 21 far above every ruler and authority, power and dominion, and every title given, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And He put everything under His feet, and appointed Him as head over everything for the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of the One who fills all things in every way.

Ephesians 1:15-23

i-heard-about-your-faith-in-the-lord-jesus-and-your-love-for-all-the-saints

  1. This is why, since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints

* Love is what grows out of your Faith.

* Faith manifests through Love. See Galatians 5:6. Love is the living proof of the Love of Christ in you. By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:35

  1. I never stop giving thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers.

* Thanksgiving to our God helps us to enter His gates. Praise and thanksgiving brings His presence.

* Prayer for others is a sacrifice given in love for their needs. See Romans 1:9. Intercession is paramount for the Body of Christ and a call to pray and love those who not yet know Jesus, our Messiah. There is a beautiful old song that says: “They will know we are Christians by our Love!” A wonderful witness!

i-pray-that-the-god-of-our-lord-jesus-christ-the-glorious-father-would-give-you-a-spirit-of-wisdom-and-revelation-in-the-knowledge-of-him

  1. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.

* spirit of Wisdom. Knowing what to do with the revelation Truth.

* revelation knowledge. Truth revealed ONLY by the Holy Spirit, and freely given to us to grow us up in the Image of Christ Jesus – the Pattern Son. We cannot even brag of what we know because He is the One who revealed it to us! See John 14:26.

* Wisdom and revelation knowledge goes beyond our finite minds and reasoning of carnality.

  1. I pray that the perception of your mind may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saints, 

* the perception of your mind. This refers to your inner man. The perception of your mind needs to be enlightened.

* hope of His calling. Each of us has a calling on our lives. We were born with a purpose and destiny that we need to discover by having open eyes and hearts. See Jeremiah 29:11. See Philippians 3:15. : In Christ Through Christ For Christ With Christ

* the glorious riches. Though we might bask in His glory, all glory belongs to our God. He sometimes gives us a glimpse of His glory and when He does, man humbly falls on his face.

* His inheritance among the saints. The most precious possession is the church (believers). We share in the inheritance that the Father has given Christ Jesus. He gave Himself willingly for all to be saved who choose to believe in Him as the Son of God. See Colossians 1:12. See l Peter 1:4.

and-what-is-the-immeasurable-greatness-of-his-power-to-us-who-believe-according-to-the-working-of-his-vast-strength

19. and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength.

* immeasurable greatness. YHWH is deserving of all praise and glory! He is the LORD of all, King of Glory! Transcendent, Immeasurable, More-than-Sufficient, I AM! God of the Universe! The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Divine!

* of His power! He is the One True God Divine in all His ways. His power is dunamis power –  meaning dynamite power! It is the root word of our English words dynamite, dynamo and dynamic. He can do anything. Jesus said that does what His Father does. He does not do anything that’s powerful without His Father showing Him first.

* to us who believe We have the same inheritance, not because we deserve it or because we earned it, but just because He loves us and has a purpose for us. For those who desire more –  spend more time with Him.

* according to the working of His vast strength. Almighty God, Father, Abba, Head over all, omnipresence, Jesus, Son of God, Son of man, Messiah, seated at the Right Hand of the Father. Holy Spirit, Teacher, Counselor, Comforter, Living in Believers.

20. He demonstrated this power in the Messiah by raising Him from the dead and seating Him at His right hand in the heavens—

* raising Him from the dead. Jesus said, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” John 2:19. He was speaking of Himself. Whom God raised up from the dead, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it. Acts 2:24

* seated Him at His right hand. The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” Psalm 110:1

the-third-heaven-is-where-our-father-and-jesus-reign

in the heavens

* our earth and sky we see is the first heaven. It is a world with sin due to the demonic realm effecting man and causing him the sin of disobedience. Our earth was made originally to be very beautiful and as a wonderful place for men, women and children to enjoy with Abba Father, Son Jesus and Holy Spirit to commune with us. This was lost to sin by Adam and Eve’s fall.

* the second Heaven is dominated by the demonic angels of many different ranks, who try to kill, steal and destroy mankind and the plans of our God.

* the third Heaven is where our Father and Jesus reign in all power and glory and dominion. It is also where the angels are dispatched to do what the God of Heaven and the Righteous of the earth tell them to do to rescue, heal, instruct, protect and direct.

far-above-every-ruler-and-authority-power-and-dominion-and-every-title-given

21) far above every ruler and authority, power and dominion, and every title given, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

* His name is above all and He follows what the Father does in complete obedience. Therefore He is honored above all and has dominion over all, but chose to share this dominion with righteous men, women and children.

* not only in this age but also in the one to come. “The Ancient of Days” The One whose existence is eternal. Daniel 7:13

he-put-everything-under-his-feet-and-appointed-him-as-head-over-everything-for-the-church

22) And He put everything under His feet, and appointed Him as head over everything for the church,

* Jesus said, “All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth.” Matthew 28:18. See Hebrews 2:8.

his-body-the-fullness-of-the-one-who-fills-all-things-in-every-way

23. which is His body, the fullness of the One who fills all things in every way.

* so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Romans 12:5. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Colossians 2:9. See l Corinthians 12:6. There is much to glean from the Word of God. Oh taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:8
