Ephesians 3 

God’s Mysterious Plan Revealed

1 When I think of all this, I, Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus for the benefit of you Gentiles[a] . . . assuming, by the way, that you know God gave me the special responsibility of extending his grace to you Gentiles. As I briefly wrote earlier, God himself revealed his mysterious plan to me. As you read what I have written, you will understand my insight into this plan regarding Christ. God did not reveal it to previous generations, but now by his Spirit he has revealed it to his holy apostles and prophets.

And this is God’s plan: Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus.[b] By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News.

Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people, he graciously gave me the privilege of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ.I was chosen to explain to everyone[c] this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning.

10 God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. 11 This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.

12 Because of Christ and our faith in him,[d] we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. 13 So please don’t lose heart because of my trials here. I am suffering for you, so you should feel honored.

Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Growth

14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father,[e] 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.[f] 16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

One comment on “Ephesians 3

  1. Golanv Waya on said:

    I believe Paul was a manifestation of satan and propogated Jesus Christ who is a fake version of Yahusha Ha Mashiach the real Son of YHWH.

    The biggest fear I have is 4.4 Billion people bought the lie from the Catholic Church instead of chosing the real Yahusha haMashiach and they choose the fake one Paul presents Jesus Christ.

    Paul to the Ephesians: “I am an apostle of Yahusha” Eps 1:1, Col 1:1, 1 Tim 1:1, 2 Timothy 1: 11,
    The Ephesians to Paul: “No you’re not.” Acts 19,
    Yahusha haMashiach to the Ephesians: “Well done!” Rev 2: 2.

    Read your prophecies. Paul is the Ravening Wolf from the Tribe of Benjamin (Genesis 49:27, Philippians 3:5-9, John 5:43, John 8:44, Acts 7:54-8:2, Isaiah 42:23-25, Matthew 7:15-23, John 5:43, Rev 2:2)

    These are behaviors after he supposedly was converted.
    Ask yourself these questions: Why did Paul call Peter a hypocrite Galatians 2:11-13? Why did Paul steal 2 Corinthians 11:8? Put down the 12 Apostles and mock them 2 Corinthians 11:5? Say he wished people would get castrated Galatians 5:12? Change the story of Adam and Eve Romans 5:12? Change the story of Abraham in the Bible Romans 3:27-4:25? Say he was called by Jesus to lead the assembly when Peter was 1 Corinthians 3:10-11 & Matthew 16:18? Use lies and trickery to gain converts 2 Corinthians 12:16, Romans 3:7 & 2 Corinthians 12:20? Brag & Boast constantly Entire chapters on his letters count the personal pronouns and number of times he brags?

    The Seven Churches in Revelation 5 have the problems because they were taught by Paul and followed Paul’s Teachings. Paul’s message was completely contradictory to Yahusha haMashiach’s Message. If you follow Paul’s teachings you end up like 4.4 Billion Christians thinking the law was done away with. The Churches in Revelation are GENTILE CHURCHES and Yahusha haMashiach totally expects them to be doing the law.

    Choosing Paul over Yahusha haMashiach’s Words can cost you eternity. Those words were added in 397 CE by the Whole of Babylon see NT Bible Cannon and how the Bible was formed. The early Christians rebuked Paul.The Books do not need to be removed God left them on purpose so we know truth. The Book has been changed or we would not have Bibles that have gone from 90 Books to 66.?

    Can you really say that Paul’s teachings only grace and no law is correct is right in light of Rev 3:22?
    Revelation 3: 22 Wake up, and strengthen and reaffirm what remains [of your faithful commitment to Me], which is about to die; for I have not found [any of] your deeds completed in the sight of My God or meeting His requirements.,
    In light of Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of Yahuah, and the faith of Yahusha haMashiach.

    There is a day coming soon when all will stand before YHWH and give an account and I fear for those who choose Paul’s fake christ over the Real Yahusha haMashiach. I am not going to be one of them. It will be hard to defend your case when the proof is in the Bible you read everyday.

    Paul and the law

    Did he or didn’t he follow the Law?
    Philippians 3: 6 I obeyed the law without fault.
    Galatians 2: 19 For when I tried to keep the law, it condemned me

    Galatians 5: 1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.(The Law)

    Galatians 5:4-5
    4 You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace. 5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness. (lol don’t keep the law you might lose your grace)

    1 Corinthians 8 8 But food will not commend us to God

    1 Corinthians 8 9 But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. (Sin is only sin if your conscience is weak)

    Philippians 3: 8 Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it (the Law) all as garbage (Original Greek this word is dung or rubbish), so that I could gain Christ 9 and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ (The Devil’s Antichrist because Yahshua Never Taught this) .[a] For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith

    2Cor 3:13 We are not like Moses, who used to put a veil over his face so that the Israelites could not stare at the the end of what was fading away

    Galatians 5:2
    2 Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. (Circumcisum is the Law of Yahweh)

    Romans 2:14–15
    14 For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, 15 in that they show athe work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them

    Romans 3 : 28
    28 So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.

    Romans : 3 : 30 There is only one God, and he makes people right with himself only by faith, whether they are Jews or Gentiles.

    Romans 7:6
    6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.

    *** What will you tell the Father on your judgment day when the proof was in the book you read every day?

    Love You & Hope You see this eventually
