    Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God: Ephesians Five:21

    Ephesians Five
    King James Bible Par ▾

    Imitators of God

    1Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

    3But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

    6Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

    Children of Light

    8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

    14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

    15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

    Song of Solomon 1:1-3; 1 Peter 3:1-7)

    22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

    25Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

    29For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.


    Love always, Walter and Debbie

    Note that in the assembly of Ekklesia in ACTS, they 'spontaneously', as well as fully, joyously (without limit, without measure) , obediently
    declared that nothing they 'owned'/ had/ was their own, and freely and as needed without coercion sold their extra properties to pay for , to see to, the true and real needs (food and clothes/ care/ transportation) of others, WHEN THE NEED BECAME KNOWN. Thus no one in the assembly had a need not met. This happens so infrequently (in terms of places; since the assemblies that do this still do this, as written, listening to the voice of Jesus, the Shepherd (and not the so-called educated voices of those opposed to Jesus) ) .....

    Thus, in line with all of God's Word, they all rejoiced together AS ONE, echad,
    just as the son and the Father ARE ONE, so also the permanent disciples are one, as written.
