    Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to [or Blessed is] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Christ, God has given us every spiritual blessing in the heavenly ·world [realms; places].(EXB)
    continuing my thoughts on this very important passage--interconnected to the verses above below and the whole book! and Bible!!
    Who? God our father has blest us
    Through whom? The blessing is in Christ
    What? EVERY spiritual blessing
    Where? heavenly world (realm)
    Why? because we are adopted through Christ into God's family. (vs 4)
    I spent the whole night kneeling against the sofa praying for the safety of a loved one, not knowing what course of action was the best--it was a place where I could have been damned if I did and damned if I didnt!
    In the morning--came the blest assurance of PS 91. The battle was won. I didnt have to do anything.-in the days to come I saw the assurance folding out.
    Every earthly battle should be perceived by us--as a spiritual battle. We are 'seated with Christ' in the heavenly realm and so we are conquerors. its a winning battle.
    Unless we see our life's situation through the eyes of Christ--we will not win. we give in to despair, to hopelessness, to loss to anger, to revenge to bitterness.
    Only as i realise that the god of this air, seeks to keep me in confinement (as that lady was in pain (70years old))only when i realise that all of heaven's equipment is mine for the asking only then will i be more than a conqueror!
    in Christ, we are in heavenly places and every spiritual blessing is ours--take it--there is no quarrel so ugly, God cannot bring peace, no hatred so intense God cannot bring love, no addiction or stronghold so strong God cannot release people, no pain so deep, God cannot heal it--We are His children--children of the almighty God, creator of the heaven and earth--lets take up our positions and take back what we have lost
    Remember it is not material wealth --its spiritual blessings. material wealth may come, health may come--as we follow God--but as Jesus says , 'Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you--all that we need for life and godliness--God will provide

    Our faith in Christ resurrection is the reason why we are christian

    These truths in Ephesians 1 apply to all Christians.Later in the apostle Paul's epistle to the church in Ephesus,he describes the multidimensional armor of God which is part of our identity as Christians.We need to live in accordance with that identity to reject following idols.The city of Ephesus had tons of them.Our current society does too.I have a friend of mine who knows Ephesians well,and she is a big blessing to me in the Lord.
