What is 'be filled with Holy Spirit' mean? Look like? Is there a progression in the Aorist Ptc's of v19-21 (addressing, singing and making melody, giving thanks) or are they on equal footing? Is 'submitting' in v21 as a Passive Ptc different than those Ptc's before it? How so? -------- What does Paul mean by the 'will of the Lord' in v 17? (only uses that phrase here in Eph in all of his epistles) A: After doing a search of how Paul uses 'will' of God or of the Lord, it came to mind Piper's explanation of the two wills of God, his 'sovereign will' which controls all things (i.e. nothing, not one thing, has ever or will ever happen outside of God's sovereign will) and God's 'desired will', which is more like saying what God desires or wants to happen, which can be construed as what makes God happy. So I think Paul is referring to the 'will of the Lord' in the second sense, 'know what makes God happy, what pleases him, and do it.' We see the latter sense of God's will being further explained in Eph 6:6, that slaves should 'do the will of God from the heart', which means not being 'people-pleasers' but rather acting as servants of Christ, 'serving with a good will as to the Lord and not to man.' Further, in 1 Thess, Paul makes two good clarifying statements about the desire of God. 1 Th 4:1-4 Finally, then, brothers,1 we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you dreceived from us ehow you ought to walk and fto please God, just as you are doing, that you gdo so more and more. 2 For hyou know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus. 3 For this is the will of God, iyour sanctification:2 jthat you abstain from sexual immorality; 4 that each one of you know how to control his own kbody3 in holiness and honor..." And later in 1 Th 5:15-22 5 See that tno one repays anyone evil for evil, but always useek to do good to one another and to everyone. 16 vRejoice always, 17 wpray without ceasing, 18 xgive thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19 yDo not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise zprophecies, 21 but atest everything; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil. It seems, then, that Paul asserts his apostolic authority in a way that his instructions about holiness and godliness are parameters on what please God, what his will is. 1 Tim 1:3-4 3 This is good, and xit is pleasing in the sight of yGod our Savior, 4 who desires zall people to be saved and ato come to bthe knowledge of the truth. 5 For cthere is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man1 Christ Jesus, 6 dwho gave himself as a ransom for all, which is ethe testimony given fat the proper time. 7 gFor this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (hI am telling the truth, I am not lying), ia teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. The Holy Bible : English standard version. 2001 (1 Ti 2:3-7). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society. ------------- Correlation between being drunk (like some oracles of false gods) and being drunk with Holy Spirit, like on Pentecost, different languages that could be heard and understand by real people and it's helpful...but those who are drunk with wine blabber uselessly and are controlled by wine... v16a Interesting use of the Ptc 'exagoramenoi' redeeming...maybe some parallel with Paul in Gal 3:13: 13 Christ has redeemed us out of the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, (for it is written, Cursed is every one hanged upon a tree,) 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come to the nations in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
