Ephesians 1:7-9 New King James Version (NKJV) 7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace 8 which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, 9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, Here is the good start and where we are ultimately headed in ultimate integration— "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit,… Ephesians 4:7 “But unto each one of us was the grace given according to the measure of the gift of Christ” “Unto each one of us”: While Paul will mention specific areas of service (), it is also true that very Christian possesses a talent or gift that they must use (Matthew 25:14-29; Romans 12:4-6). {I have often wondered why it is necessary for God to withdraw the Holy Spirit from the earth before the end of the last days, although of course it is not my place to question God as the clay should never question the potter; but often wondering that if somewhere in the recesses of the OT is not a simple statement to explain a reason for the loosing of Satan by the withdrawal of the Spirit.
