Title: Ephesians 6


1
Ephesians 6
  • The frog in the kettle with the gradually rising
    temperature did not know how to react until it
    was too late. Unfortunately, this sadly
    illustrates many families

2
Responsibilities of Children to Parents Ephesians
61-3
  • 1 Children,
  • obey your parents in the Lord,
  • for this is right.
  • 2 Honor your father and mother
  • (which is the first commandment with a
    promise),
  • 3 that it may be well with you,
  • and that you may live long on the earth.

Disobedience was a sign of Gentile corruption in
Rom 130 They are backstabbers, haters of God,
insolent, proud, and boastful. They are forever
inventing new ways of sinning and are disobedient
to their parents. And a sign of the end times in
2 Tim 32 For people will love only themselves
and their money. They will be boastful and proud,
scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents,
and ungrateful.
Modern version Parents, obey your children, for
this will keep them happy and bring peace to the
home.

Ephesians 64
  • And, fathers,
  • do not provoke your children to anger
  • but bring them up in the discipline
  • and instruction of the Lord.

In the Roman law of patria potestas a father had
virtual life and death power not only over his
slaves but over his entire household
4
How to Provoke to Anger
  1. Overly protective, restricting activities, never
    trusting them, and over controlling them
  2. Favoritism (Esau/Jacob), comparing
    siblings-looser is resentful and bitter
  3. Pushing achievement beyond reasonable
    bounds-learns acceptance/significance depends on
    performance
  4. Constant discouragement, questioning their
    judgment, never good enough, never complimented
  5. Failing to sacrifice for the children- made to
    feel like an intrusion ruining the parents
    plans-attitude reverses later!
  6. Expecting adult behavior from child
  7. Using love as a tool of reward or
    punishment-manipulation
  8. Physical and verbal abuse-most punish out of
    anger or hurt child emotionally by sarcasm,
    rejection or threats

5
Seven Attitudes of Servants Spirit-Filled Labor
relations Ephesians 65-6
Gods plan is authority and submission relations
in mutual submission
Struggle today between employer and employees is
greed and selfishness.
  • 5 Slaves,
  • be obedient to those
  • who are your masters
  • according to the flesh,
  • with fear and trembling,
  • in the sincerity of your heart,
  • as to Christ
  • 6 not by way of eyeservice,
  • as men-pleasers,
  • but as slaves of Christ,
  • doing the will of God from the heart.

6
Submission of Employees Eph 67-8
  • 7 With good will render service,
  • as to the Lord,
  • and not to men,
  • 8 knowing that whatever good thing
  • each one does,
  • this he will receive back
  • from the Lord,
  • whether slave or free.

7
Submission of Employers Eph 69
  • 9 And, masters,
  • do the same things to them,
  • and give up threatening,
  • knowing that both their Master
  • and yours is in heaven,
  • and there is no partiality with Him.

8
Challenge to Warfare Ephesians 610-11
  • Finally,
  • be strong in the Lord,
  • and in the strength of His might.
  • 11 Put on the full armor of God,
  • that you may be able to stand firm
  • against the schemes of the devil.

Timothy became fearful and timid. Paul wrote,
God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but
of POWER and love and discipline. Therefore do
not be ashamed of the testimony of our LordYou,
therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is
in Christ Jesus (2 Tim 16-8, 21)
  • Why would people ignore, be indifferent or forget
    the armor?
  • No sense of the real danger for the power and
    scheming of the enemy. Every day we step into a
    spiritual minefield.
  • Untrained in use of weapons
  • Too comfortable thus are willing to be ignorant
    of the battle

Power to seduce and Persuade Deceived Israel in
desert after miraculous exodus, led Israel to
worship hideous idols of paganism, convinced
Israel to crucify their Messiah, and will
persuade all that Antichrist is really
Christ Today demonic persuasion is changing
family values, new morality, pagan and apostate
cults, many seducing spirits and doctrines of
demons (1Tim 41)
9
The Spiritual Mafia Hierarchy Eph 612-13
  • 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and
    blood,
  • but against the rulers,
  • against the powers,
  • against the world forces
  • of this darkness,
  • against the spiritual forces
  • of wickedness
  • in the heavenly places.

Christians have authority and power to overcome
Satan. James gives instruction to submit to the
power of Jesus and resist Satan and he will flee
(Jas 47).
10
Empowerment for Victory Eph 613
  • 13 Therefore,
  • take up the full armor of God,
  • that you may be able to resist in the evil day,
  • and having done everything,
  • to stand firm.

11
Satans Schemes
  1. Discredits Gods character, credibility and
    abilitytempting men to distrust God, disregard
    the Scripture, doubt Gods purpose and blame God
    for evil
  2. Generates trouble that makes life difficult,
    tempting you to abandon Gods standard and
    purpose for your life, esp. by persecution, fear
    of criticism
  3. Doctrinal confusion and falsehood to dissuade the
    untaught and emotional
  4. Opposition to ministry (many adversaries 1 Cor
    169)
  5. Attacks believers by causing divisions. Jesus
    paid for their unity (Jn 174, 21-23). Carnal
    Corinthians fell prey to his schemes (1 Cor 1-3)
  6. Persuades you to trust your own resources. Satan
    got David to count his troops (1 Chron 211-8).
    Like trusting your degree, personality, talent,
    knowledge, funds instead of His providence.
  7. Leads believers into hypocrisyfaking it, with a
    disobedient secret life
  8. Convinces believers of worldliness, materialism,
    self-satisfaction, self-indulgence, hedonism,
    quest for more things and worldly respect.
  9. Leads believers to disobey Gods Word. God wants
    us to be moral, Satan, immoral God wants us to
    speak truth Satan to lie God wants us to be
    unselfish loving, Satan, selfish disinterested
    God wants us content, Satan, greedy, covetous,
    envious God wants us to live by faith, Satan, to
    live by sight, etc.

Believers 7-Part Armor Eph 614-15
  • 14 Stand firm therefore,
  • having girded your loins with truth,

When attacked by Satan the first thing we need to
do to get ready for battle is to use the truth of
God, His Word, to prepare us. This is a battle
of the mind. We are to begin our warfare by
remembering who we are in Christ. Satan cant
change that and he cannot defeat the follower of
Christ who claims that truth before he enters
battle.
We are human, but we don't wage war with human
plans and methods. We use God's mighty weapons,
not mere worldly weapons, to knock down the
Devil's strongholds. With these weapons we break
down every proud argument that keeps people from
knowing God. With these weapons we conquer their
rebellious ideas, and we teach them to obey
Christ. 2 Corinthians 103-5
12
13
Believers 7-Part Armor Eph 614-15
  • 14 Stand firm therefore,
  • and having put on the breastplate of
    righteousness,

Righteousness is to wrap around our lives (not
self-righteousness thinking we are holy), but
the righteousness of Christ. It is by His
righteousness that our salvation is secured and
guaranteed. It is by His righteousness that we
can withstand all the attacks of Satan who tries
to keep us from having eternal salvation. It is
by His righteousness that we have spiritual life
that cannot be destroyed.

14
Believers 7-Part Armor Eph 614-15
  • 14 Stand firm therefore,
  • 15 and having shod your feet
  • with the preparation of the gospel of peace

Peace can only come to the one who knows Jesus is
in their heart to stay not because of what they
do but because that is what He promises to do.
15
Armor of Believer Eph 616-17
  • 16 in addition to all,
  • taking up the shield of faith
  • with which you will be able to extinguish
  • all the flaming missiles of the evil one.

missiles are temptations to immorality, hatred,
envy, anger, covetousness, pride, doubt, fear,
despair, distrust Him. If you cant trust Him,
you wont obey Him. This is the victory that
has overcome the worldour faith 1 John 54
16
Armor of Believer Eph 616-17
  • 17 And take the helmet of salvation,

16
17
Armor of Believer Eph 616-17
  • and the sword of the Spirit,
  • which is the word of God.

18
Power Source of Prayer Ephesians 618
  • With all prayer
  • and petition
  • pray at all times in the Spirit,
  • and with this in view,
  • be on the alert with all perseverance
  • and petition for all the saints,

19
How to pray for a Servant Eph 619-20
  • 19 and pray on my behalf,
  • that utterance may be given to me
  • in the opening of my mouth,
  • to make known with boldness
  • the mystery of the gospel,
  • 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains
  • that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly,
  • as I ought to speak.

My circumstances have turned out for the greater
progress of the gospel, so that my imprisonment
in the cause of Christ has become well known
throughout the whole praetorian guard and to
everyone else, and that most of the brethrenhave
far more courage to speak the word of God without
fear Phil 112-14
20
Intelligent prayers require information Ephesians
621-22
  • But that you also may know about my
    circumstances,
  • how I am doing,
  • Tychicus, the beloved brother
  • and faithful minister in the Lord,
  • will make everything known to you.
  • 22 And I have sent him to you
  • for this very purpose,
  • so that you may know about us,
  • and that he may comfort your hearts.

21
The Benediction Eph 623-24
  • 23 Peace be to the brethren,
  • and love with faith,
  • from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 24 Grace be with all
  • those who love our Lord Jesus Christ
  • with a love incorruptible.
