Could it be we are living in the time Paul was talking about in verse 10 this is going to be the blessing of blessing? 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

Dispensation of the fullness of time refers to the end of time as we know it on planet earth. ).—Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary  Verse 10. Translate, “Unto the dispensation of the fulness of the times,” that is, “which He purposed in Himself” (Eph 1:9) with a view to the economy of (the gracious administration belonging to) the fulness of the times (Greek, “fit times,” “seasons”). More comprehensive than “the fulness of the time” (Ga 4:4). The whole of the Gospel times (plural) is meant, with the benefits to the Church dispensed in them severally and successively. Compare “the ages to come” (Eph 2:7). “The ends of the ages” (Greek, 1Co 10:11); “the times (same Greek as here, ‘the seasons,’ or ‘fitly appointed times’) of the Gentiles” (Lu 21:24); “the seasons which the Father hath put in His own power” (Ac 1:7); “the times of restitution of all things which God hath spoken by the prophets since the world began” (Ac 3:20, 21). The coming of Jesus at the first advent, “in the fulness of time,” was one of these “times.” The descent of the Holy Ghost, “when Pentecost was fully come” (Ac 2:1), was another. The testimony given by the apostles to Him “in due time” (“in its own seasons,” Greek) (1Ti 2:6) was another. The conversion of the Jews “when the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled,” the second coming of Christ, the “restitution of all things,” the millennial kingdom, the new heaven and earth, shall be severally instances of “the dispensation of the fulness of the times,” that is, “the dispensation of” the Gospel events and benefits belonging to their respective “times,” when severally filled up or completed. God the Father, according to His own good pleasure and purpose, is the Dispenser both of the Gospel benefits and of their several fitting times (Ac 1:7).”

This week as been another week of crisis in the region of the hurricane, it seems every one is blaming every one. People in office are stepping down and we need people to step up to the plate, accepting responsibility for what is going on, if we are going to be a blessing to others. Who is in control? Is being  asked by our Senate and house and we need to see the power within ourselves, as we accept the Lords will for our lives..

Are you beginning to see our blessing as we abide in the vine? Verse 9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

I never thought we would see another hurricane reaching a level 5 so soon, as Rita is bearing down on the Texas Coast and surrounding areas. It seems we never learn how powerful nature is, for many still do not want to flea the area; rather going to ride it out.

It is a pleasure for me at this time to be attending the Critical Incident Stress Management Pastoral Crisis Intervention conducted by Washington CISM Network in Yakima, WA. Our instructor is Dr. Tim Klerekoper the Executive Director of Charteris Foundation, a private non-profit charitable organization providing chaplaincy services throughout the Pacific Northwest. He personally serves as Head Chaplain for Federal Way Fire Department and Des Moines Police Department where he hold the rank of Major. He earned his Bachelor’s degree from Whitworth College, a Diploma in Christian studies from Regent College, and a Master of Arts and Doctors of Ministry degree from Faith Lutheran Seminary.

He does marriage and family counseling, and is an instructor for the California P.O.S.T training program and lectures nationally and internationally for the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, and the International Conference of police Chaplains, and is an Adjunct Seminary Professor, teaching Crisis Intervention Counseling, Grief and Bereavement and Stress related classes both in the United States and overseas.

He is married to his wife Jan for 27 years and has two boys, he is Ordained as an Anglican Priest and lives in Federal Way Washington.I feel very blessed to be under his teaching and am inspired to continue to do all I can to lift   those hurting by bringing them the truth in love, kindness in understanding them, gentleness in confirming them, and understanding in walking with them in their stresses.

         

What we are learning in Crisis Management goes with what I have centered my Web Site on to those released from jail, or the prison of sin. As we continue in our study of Ephesians we see Paul facing reality of who we are in Christ. So let’s note Ephesians 1:8

           Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence.”
