Ephesians 3:1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Emmanuel the Christ for you Gentiles,

Ephesians 3:2 If you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you ward

Ephesians 3:3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; as I wrote afore in few words,

Ephesians 3:4 Whereby, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ.

Ephesians 3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit..(Isaiah 50:4)

Ephesians 3:6 That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs and of the same body and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel.

Ephesians 3:7 Whereof I was made.(word 'made' in original is 'became').a minister.(a minister is a servant:.Luke 22:26,27)., according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual.(word 'effectual' not in original).working of his power.

Ephesians 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

Ephesians 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;.(Eclectic Notes.adds:."...not merely a Messiah according to the promises made to the fathers, a Jewish Christ, but a Christ whose riches were unsearchable. No one could trace to the end and in all its development in Him, the accomplishment of the counsels and the revelation of the nature of God {John 1:18}. They are the incomprehensible riches of a Christ in whom God reveals Himself and in whom all God's thoughts are accomplished and displayed. These purposes of God with regard to Christ, the Head of His body, the assembly {Hebrews 12:23}, Head over all things {Ephesians 1:22,23; Colossians 2:10; John 1:3,10; Ephesians 3:9, is next verse below} in heaven and Earth, this Christ who was God the Creator-Father manifest in the flesh, were now made known and being accomplished.")

Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God, who created all things by Emmanuel Christ.

Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship (original also means 'partner in', to have a part in).of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God.(and there is a key to getting into this hidden area of spirituality), who created.(original 'is creating' or, constantly recreating.all things).all things.(Hebrews 3:4).by Emmanuel Christ.(*)..(done before He became physical and one of humankind:.John 8:58).

Better translated, paraphrased and explained:."And to make all men see that they are one with what was previously unknown to them, the relationship which was continuously throughout the ages hid in God, who is constantly creating all things by Emmanuel the Christ.".and why? next verse.

Ephesians 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold.('manifold' means, 'many and variegated and deep' as verses 18,19 below show).wisdom of God;.(?)

Ephesians 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Emmanuel our Lord.

Ephesians 3:12 In whom we have boldness.(Hebrews 10:27).and access with confidence by the faith.of him.(comprehend the use of the word 'him').

Ephesians 3:13 Wherefore I desire that you faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.(what does 'glory' mean here?).

Paul encourages them not to be sapped by any trials and tests he was going through in the form of persecutions

Ephesians 3:14 For this cause.(what cause? Romans 8:18; 2Corinthians 1:6; 1Peter 1:11) I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ,

Paul was dedicated to what he believed to be his purpose

Ephesians 3:15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

Ephesians 3:16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.(the inner man is what you really are, your mind, character and personality);

Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith.(Christ doesn't dwell in our hearts because of us working at a bunch of religious do's and don'ts; it takes faith to believe); that you, being rooted and grounded in love.(and that's what the Creator is and this rooting and grounding in love {which means, being in the Creator, or the Creator in you} is necessary to comprehend that which Paul says in the next verse, that of the forth dimension {remember, physically, we exist in a three-dimensional world, so Paul is talking of seeing things beyond this, things of a higher realm}),

Ephesians 3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height.

Ephesians 3:18 May.(word 'may' not in original).be able.(original for 'be able' is 'be strong').to comprehend.(original for 'comprehend' is 'according to taking', 'to having').with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth.(down).and height.(up)..(verse here refers back to verse 10 and 12)

"And since he.(mankind).sees the world.(from his very birth).this way.(three-dimensional space and a one dimensional time), he, naturally, has no doubt that the world is the way he sees it. But the.(colored contacts).contact lenses can be taken out and then the world will appear as entirely different, in the whole gamut.(complete range).of splendid colors. In the same way, if we eliminate the limitations of ordinary wakeful consciousness together with the three-dimensional.perception of the world and time that goes with it, that is, if we shift to a higher state of consciousness, the world will appear as utterly different.
   "This truth has been known from times immemorial. Note what Apostle Paul says about space in this epistle.(letter). Four dimensions of space are listed. It means that as a result of a certain work and under certain conditions and above all, as stated by Paul the Apostle.(an apostle is a leading disciple, a learner, follower, pupil), upon condition of "being rooted and established in love", man will be able to start perceiving four dimensions of space. And I will add onto what will happen due to the change of the state of consciousness. In reality, as the state of his consciousness changes, man may begin to perceive spaces of any number of dimensions")....Grigori Grabovoi

Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge that you might be.filled with all.the fulness of God.

Ephesians 3:19 And to know the love of Christ.(this is the higher spirituality, where one continues spiritual growth, greater and greater and the tools for this are here).which passes knowledge.(what does 'passes knowledge' mean?).that you might be.(words 'might be' not in original and word 'be' is implied).filled with all.the fulness of God..(would you not then be equal with 'all' the fullness?.Ephesians 4:13learning is a process on the road to perfection, even though God calls us perfect now:.Romans 4:17 "God, who quickens the dead and calls those things which be not as though they were.".And in this learning along the way some mistakes are made that cause trouble:.John 7:7. Along with one's zeal for truth and acquisition of knowledge.(2Peter 3:18), one must use wisdom:.James 1:5.

Ephesians 3:20.(from the original).And to be able.(we are able to use this power, once we understand we have it).to have power through a state of mind toward favourable circumstances because of law.(universal laws).producing designated performance more than you now have, more than you ask or think according to the power operating in us.

And how the King James translators translated it:.Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us

Ephesians 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Emmanuel throughout all ages, world without end..Amen.

Ephesians 3:21 Unto.(word 'unto' not in original).him.(or, 'He is', or 'His').be.('be' not in original) glory in the church by.(or, 'through').Christ Emmanuel throughout all ages, world without end.(a better translation of the phrase 'world without end. Amen' would have been 'forever and for sure', because it's not talking about a world without end, it's talking about Christ without end; the original Greek words make this clearer)..Amen.

Ephesians 3:21 is from Isaiah 45:17; if we live forever and there is really no time, once we understand it, then there is no need of death

Perhaps better translated:.Him glory in church.(the church is people in whom Christ's higher consciousness nature of love is; so, His glory or, the glory of being in Him will last forever).in Him.(or, glory to those in Him).into all generations ever always in truth..(the idea is, that through the endless succession of ages {from beginning of mankind and throughout all eternity} or, through all time, Christ is the glory over all principalities and powers; see verse 10. Also Romans 16:17.
