The Power of His Might Ephesians 6 [podcast]


Ephesians 6:1-2

“Where our religion is true, it will affect every relationship in life. The love of Christ must find its manifestation in nursery and in kitchen, in workshop and in municipal chamber. But notice that its duties are reciprocal. We must give on our side, just as we expect others to give on theirs.

The first duty of children is obedience. They must be taught to obey because it is right, and their conscience bears witness to the rightness. Never plead with a child to do what is right, nor bribe it by a reward. Take your stand on that primeval sense of right and wrong, which is the foundation of morals and will be the stay of the child’s whole after-life, when once its supremacy is established. But parents should help their children by removing irritation or passion from their own speech. Slaves formed a large proportion of the early Church. Their obedience must be explicit, and they were taught to believe that Christ took their faithful service to their earthly owner as service to Himself. But masters must ever deal with their servants as liable to be called to account by the great Master of all. The center of all authority is Christ, and He will demand an account of our treatment of every servant He has sent into our homes.”

Charles Pray writes:

“This is the main thing God wants to teach us-that this is a spiritual battle that we fight. You can read in the King James Bible, in 2 Chronicles 20:1-29: “The battle is not yours, but God’s.” Sometimes if we are to succeed and win victory, the Lord has to be the one to fight the battle. This is the way it must be to win the victory over sins. Only through what God has done can we win the victory. We cannot redeem ourselves from our sins. We have no price we can offer. Amen!”

Biblical Duties for Employees/Bosses

The word “purloining” is a King James Bible word that comes to mind….

“Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again; 10 Not purloining (stealing), but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.” Titus 2:9-10 

Greek for “purloining”

Middle voice from νοσφί nosphi (apart or clandestinely); to sequestrate for oneself, that is, embezzle: – keep back, purloin.
Total KJV occurrences: 3


PURLOINverb transitive

1. Literally, to take or carry away for one’s self; hence, to steal; to take by theft.

eg: Your butler purloins your liquor.

2. To take by plagiarism; to steal from books or manuscripts.

Where the Real Battle Rages, Ephesians 6:12

The Whole Armor of God

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” Ephesians 6:10-18

In our country, it’s Satan who wants us defenseless – unable to defend ourselves. In spiritual battle, it’s also Satan who wants nothing more than for believers to leave the house every morning without suiting up with the armor of God!

Defensive and Offensive Weaponry

Our military can defensively strike down missiles etc. There are also many offensive weapons which can blow up enemies as is witnessed by the footage of American fighter pilots targeting terrorist operations by strategically firing and perfectly guiding heavy bombs into enemy targets…buildings. etc.

Hebrews 4:12:

The Word of God, “the sword of the Spirit” is divinely powerful, bringing great destruction (Jer 23:29; 2 Cor 10:3-5); bringing offensive weapons for the inner man (John 15:3; Eph 5:26); and for evangelism) Lk 8:11; 1 Pet 1:23; Is 55:11).
