…a Bible student's notes…

Ehpesians 3:9….

The following is my “rough” study of Ephesians 3:9.  There is hardly any commentary on my part.  The literal version and the Strong’s – note version includes all three verses:  9-11 of Ephesians 3.  Anyway, read and study carefully.  Many blessings are stored away for you to discover in these verses.  Enjoy!

 Eph. 3:9And to bring to light—what is the administration of the sacred secret which had been hidden away from the ages in God, who did all things create: – Rotherham

When God was creating – before God created – He had a plan, a “secret” plan, “mystery,” hidden away in Himself – The Great “I AM,” – Elohim. And, when He said, “Let there be light,” it has spiritual and literal implications for you and me!! This plan was “hidden away from the ages” in Himself. This plan includes an ADMINISTRATION! And, now is being made know to ALL His creation.

Eph 3:9 and to enlighten all as to what is the administration of the secret, which has been concealed from the eons in God, Who creates all,

Eph 3:10that now may be made known to the sovereignties and the authorities among the celestials, through the ecclesia, the multifarious wisdom of God,

Eph 3:11 in accord with the purpose of the eons, which He makes in Christ Jesus, our Lord;” CLV – Concordant Literal Version
