God has Blessed us
About 30 years ago Jesus came to me while I was sleeping one night, and He said so very clear that He wanted me to do some things for Him.
Now just about every day since then many things have been piling up that needed to be done, yes by me, but some how like most things they are put on the back burner, well this is what I did with some things.
Now years later since that night when Jesus came to me , well at last I'm now starting to get into those things which needed to be done.
And now I've worked it out that there must be hundreds of things that I put aside that needs my attention, so now it could take me years to just try and catch up so I'll be alive for ever.
Praise God! for He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, God blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heaven.
In Christ, God chose us before the world began.
He wanted us to be holy and spotless before Him in love.
God planned long ago that we become His own sons through Jesus Christ, this would please God; it is what He wanted,we praise God for His glorious, gracious love that He gave us in Christ. God loves him, we have something in Christ - his blood has set us free, we have the forgiveness of sins! God's gracious love is so rich!.It overwhelms us with all kinds of wisdom and understanding. To us God made clear the secret of what He wanted, He was pleased to plan this in Christ.
God's plan is to bring everything together in Christ - in heaven and on earth - under Christ as Head. When the right time arrives He will do this.
We were chosen in Christ, God planned this long ago for His purpose, He works out everything, God decides what He wants,You've heard the true message, the good news about your salvation, after you believed, you were sealed in Christ with the Holy Spirit whom God promised. The Spirit is the guarantee that we will receive the inheritance, God will set His own people free for the praise of His glory.
So I never stop thanking God for you, I always mention you in my prayers, I want the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, to give to you insight and a wise spirit, then you will know Him better, I pray that the eyes of your heart will receive the light, then you will know the meaning of the hope of God's invitation. You will know the riches of His glorious inheritance among the holy people.
You will know God's great power which is available to us who believe, it is like the exercising of His mighty strength, when He raised Christ from death and put him at His own right side in the heavenly world.
However,God was rich in mercy, because of His great love which He had for us, while we were spitirually dead in sins, God made us alive with Christ. ( You have been saved by God's gracious love) And God raised us from spitirual death and seated us in heavenly world with Christ Jesus
This community is Christ's body, it is the totality of Christ; he completes everything everywhere.
I have been able to write some of Ephesians here which you have just read.
