Ephesians 3:19  to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  (NKJV)

The Apostle Paul wrote the Book of Ephesians to the believers in the church in Ephesus; somehow trying to explain to them how they as believers had been sealed with Holy Spirit of promise (Ephesians 1:13)… They had been plagued by false prophets, who had filled their heads with unscriptural ideas that were leading to harmful disputes; rather than godly edification that comes by receiving the riches and fullness of God’s blessings, for those believers that allowed Christ to fill their hearts with His love…

This love of Christ which passes knowledge, that the Apostle Paul writes about in the opening scripture…can only be realized by the Christian who allows the Holy Spirit to completely control their life…  This fullness of God is what I have been trying to explain in the last 3 out of 4 days of writing…  When the Christian is walking in the Spirit, they possess a live-in lifelong Helper, the Holy Spirit (John 14:26); which gives the believer the agape love of Christ, a faith that can move mountains (Matthew 17:20), spiritual wisdom (Colossians 2:2-3), a fullness of joy (John 15:11), and a supernatural peace that goes beyond our mortal understanding…

Philippians 4:6-7Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  (NKJV)

This awesome supernatural power of the Holy Spirit, as the opening scripture reveals as Christ’s love, which passes knowledge…is just about impossible to explain to someone who has never experienced what truly walking in the fullness of the Holy Spirit is like…  The Apostle Paul prays this for the Ephesians; that through the power of the Holy Spirit…

Ephesians 3:17-19that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height19 to know the love of Christ which passesknowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  (NKJV)

Take one look at the universe, and all that God made in this perfect world; that through just God’s speech, He spoke it all into existence…Genesis 1…   http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=gen1&version=NKJV

Before I became a Christian, I had a problem believing that the Creation, and all that the Bible has recorded in it that was God breathed (2 Timothy 3:16-17), was the true Word of God…  I wrote back on 11/13/12, about why the Creation was a mystery for some people…  Here is the link for those who want to go back and read what the Bible reveals about why…   https://godsmanforever.wordpress.com/2012/11/13/gods-group-thoughts-for-11132012-why-creation-is-a-mystery-to-some/

I made mention in this writing, that I believe only more mature Christians, who have spent extensive time in God’s Word, and are walking in the Spirit, with all the fullness of God, will have the faith and the spiritual wisdom to not only understand what God is trying to teach us through His Word…but they will also believe in faith given to them by the Holy Spirit, that every word is true…  Without the help of the Holy Spirit, much of the Bible will be a mystery, a bunch of stories for children, or worse…foolishness to some…  Belief in Creation, will be replaced with evolution…

1 Corinthians 2:10 & 13-14 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  (NKJV)

So many churches will never teach about the multiple benefits and absolute power of the Holy Spirit…  Many of these churches spend little or no time teaching and preaching about the need for a sinner to understand and obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Thessalonians 1:8-9); to have sins forgiven by God’s pure grace alone, through saving faith alone in Jesus Christ… Here is a link to a day of writing; I pray anyone with questions about how God will forgive sins will study, as explained through God’s inerrant Word, the Bible…

Heavenly Father, I pray that anyone who doesn’t feel the awesome power of the Holy Spirit surging through their body, giving life to every part of their being…would get down on their knees and seek Your grace… I pray Lord that You would draw those in need of Your saving  grace unto Yourself (John 6:44), and that those You know as Your children (if they are less than Spirit filled), would confess their sins and turn from them (1 John 1:9)…and again seek to walk in sweet fellowship with You… I pray for these spiritual changes for those in need, in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…
