THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE EPHESIANS

CHAPTER 4
 

CAPTIVITY BIBLE VERSE

CAPTIVITY BIBLE STUDY ON CAPTIVITY BIBLE QUOTE WITH CAPTIVITY BIBLE MESSAGE
 

           Oh, there you are! I was hoping you’d be back soon for more Daily Bread. Welcome back! Now that Paul has introduced us to the spiritual blessings or gifts that have been bestowed upon us by God, now he encourages us to use those blessings and gifts and walk the spiritual walk of Faith. Remember, we learned that the “works” of Faith are effortless, because they’re a part of you, so they come to you naturally. Now let’s learn, as Paul teaches us how to live by Faith.

 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you that you walk worthy of the vocation (divine calling) that you’re called to do, with all lowliness (humbleness, humility) and meekness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love; attempting to keep the unity of the Spirit in peace.

 There is one body (church), and One Spirit (the Holy Spirit), just as you are called in one hope of your calling (Salvation), there is One Lord (Jesus Christ), one faith (Christianity), one baptism (in the name of the same Father, God), One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Ephesians 4:7
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

What does this mean? That Jesus gives each one of us unique and special administrations (called Spiritual gifts) that He knows in His infinite wisdom are best suited to us as individuals because we are His creation.

That’s why He (the Lord) prophesied through David:

Psalms 68:18
Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.

CAPTIVITY BIBLE VERSE LESSON WITH CAPTIVITY BIBLE VERSE EXPLANATION

         Now the next two verses may be a little hard to understand so let's look at them closely.

Ephesians 4:9-10
(Now that He ascended, what is it but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things.)

Since Paul was talking about the ascension of Jesus, he finds it necessary to point out that He must have descended first. He humbled Himself first and then He was exalted so that He could fill all things, all of the members of the body of Christ, with gifts appropriate to their calling.

          Among the gifts that He gave us, He gave (provided) to some, Apostles; and to some, Prophets; and to some, Evangelists; and to some, Pastors and Teachers, for the perfecting of the saints (for the betterment of the believers), for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ until we are all unified in Faith, and in the knowledge of the Son of God, as a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

          From now on, we should be no longer like children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight (deceit) of men, and cunning craftiness, by which they lie in wait to deceive people, but speaking the TRUTH in love, that we may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, that is, Christ, from whom the whole body fitly joined together and held together by what each joint supplies, according to the effective working throughout every part, enriching the body for the building up of itself in love.

This I say then, and testify in the Lord, that from now on, don’t live as other Gentiles live, in pride, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart, who having no conscience, have given themselves over to unruliness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

But you have not learned this from Christ, if you have truly heard Him, and have been taught by Him, as the TRUTH is in Jesus, that you do away with the former life of your old selves, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be made new in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
 
          Therefore, don’t lie, but everyone speak TRUTH with your neighbor, because we are members one of another. Don’t be angry, and sin not: don’t let the sun go down while you’re angry.

CAPTIVITY BIBLE VERSE INFORMATION WITH CAPTIVITY BIBLE VERSE MEANING

           People do that quite frequently don’t they? Whether they’re mad at someone in their own family or mad at someone or something else, they choose to keep their anger inside them. Paul says, don’t go to sleep mad. Here’s a good reason why. You cannot control your dreams. And who do you think knows that? Bingo, the adversary. When you’re angry, there’s a chink in your armor. What a grand opportunity for him to put deceitful ideas in your mind.

Ephesians 4:26
... Let not the sun go down upon your wrath.

Neither give place (opportunity) to the devil.

Let him that stole, steal no more, but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have enough to give to him that needs.

Let no evil words proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying (building up), that it may minister Grace to whoever hears you.

And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed for the day of redemption.

          If you haven’t read Spirit of Truth yet, I encourage you to do so. It will help you to understand the Holy Spirit in a way that you may not have known up until now. I encourage you to introduce yourself to Him as well!

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, along with all malice.

And be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God, for Christ's sake, has forgiven you.

          Do you love to get mail? Whenever your mailbox is empty, there’s always a letter from Paul, right there in your Bible. Come on back soon, and we’ll enjoy the next part of this letter from Paul, together, right here at Daily Bread.
