TODAY’S STUDY
God Wants You to Take Advantage of Your Direct Access to Him 
 
Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision (the Jews),” (a circumcision) which is performed in the flesh by human hands —
 
…remember that you (Gentiles) were at that time separate from Christ (without the hope of a Messiah as promised to the Jews), excluded from the commonwealth of Israel (not citizens), and strangers to the covenants of promise (with no hope of the future blessing the Jews had through Abraham), having no hope (because they were unbelievers) and without (a relationship with) God in the world.
 
But now in (union with) Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
 
For He Himself (the Lord Jesus Christ) is our peace, who made both groups into one (group…unity) and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall…
 
…by abolishing in His flesh (physical death) the enmity, which is the (Mosaic) Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He (the Lord Jesus Christ) might make the two (groups) into one new man (the new spiritual species…the Church Age believer), thus establishing peace…
 
…and might reconcile them both in one body (the Church Age believers…the body of Christ) to God through the Cross, by it (the Cross) having put to death the enmity.
 
AND HE (the Lord Jesus Christ) CAME AND PREACHED PEACE TO YOU (Gentiles) WHO WERE FAR AWAY, AND PEACE TO THOSE WHO WERE NEAR (the Jews)…
 
…for through Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) we both (Jews and Gentiles) have our access in one Spirit (en Pneumati) to (God)the Father.
 
For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of (the Lord Jesus) Christ Jesus (in a Roman jail as well as in the “imprisonment” of a bond servant) for the sake of you Gentiles —
 
…if (1) indeed you have heard of the stewardship (dispensation) of God’s grace which was given to me for you (and you have because I have taught it to you before)…
 
…that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief (in chapter two).
 
By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ…
 
…which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit (en Pneumati)…
 
…to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body (of Christ…the Church Age Royal family), and fellow partakers of the promise in (union with) Christ Jesus through the gospel…
 
…of which I (Paul) was made a minister, according to the gift of God’s grace which was given to me according to the working of His power.
 
To me (Paul), the very least of all saints (believers in Christ), this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable (incapable of being traced by footprints) riches of Christ…
 
…and to bring to light what is the administration (dispensation) of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in (the) God (the Lord Jesus Christ) who created (the) all things (John 1:3)…
 
…so that the manifold wisdom of God (the Father) might now be made known through the church (age believers) to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.
 
This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He (God the Father) carried out in (union with) Christ Jesus our Lord…
 
…in whom we (believers in Christ) have boldness and confident (direct) access (to God) through faith in Him (the Lord Jesus Christ).

From that time Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up (in resurrection) on the third day.
 
Peter took Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “God forbid it, Lord! This shall never happen to You.”
 
But He (the Lord Jesus Christ) turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but (you are setting your mind on) man’s (interests).”
 
For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD (so well), THAT HE WILL (be qualified to) INSTRUCT HIM? But we (believers) have the mind of Christ.
 
Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
 
I have learned the secret…
 
I can do all things through Him (the Lord Jesus Christ) who strengthens me.
 
…as it is written, “BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”
 
FAITH
Placing your confidence in the object of your faith after an examination of the evidence.
 
…shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight (and do) not (shepherd) under compulsion, but (shepherd) voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain (greedy for money), but 
with eagerness (to serve)…
 
…nor (shepherd) yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but (shepherd by) proving to be examples (of character) to the flock.
 
 
Now these (Berean believers) were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.
