Our integrity has to be maintained by Bible Doctrine and has to be protected by the function of the 10 PSD’s.

Integrity is defined as firm adherence to a code of values or the quality or state of being complete or undivided.

In the spiritual realm,
the firm adherence to a code of values refers to the spiritual strength to be faithful to the principles
of the PPOG.


EPH 5:22

EPH 6:5-9

After studying these principles and
noting these things,
Paul is saying
toi loupou, “from now on.”

tou loipou =
“from now on”

tou loipou =
“from now on”

Spiritual skills must
precede production skills for the performance
of divine good.


The filling of the Holy Spirit and therefore
the use of divine power.


2. Cognition of Bible Doctrine and therefore
the use of divine power.

3. The execution of the PPOG and therefore
the use of divine power.

We have this wonderful grace phrase, tou loipou, “from now on.”

EPH 5:22 Wives, obey your own husbands
EPH 5:24 Wives, be subject

EPH 6:4 Parents, do not provoke your children to anger,
EPH 6:5 labor, be obedient to management
EPH 6:9 and management treat labor fairly.


The implication is very simple; we are too unstable and unprepared to handle spiritual warfare when we can’t even handle relationships in life.

strong – pres-pass-imp of
endunamoo which means in the passive voice to acquire power, or to become strong.

This could also be translated as a middle voice since TLJC is the power and the power belongs to TLJC and He produces the action of the verb and we benefit.

We now come to a position where we are ready to put on that armor, not just to handle marriage, family, and the work place, but also to recognize spiritual warfare.

The pres-pass-imp of endunamoo should be translated, start becoming strong.

This is a tendentious [the aim] present tense for an action commanded but not taking place.

In other words, “From now on” start becoming strong.
Or begin acquiring power which is available for the execution of the PPOG.

1. The filling of the Spirit
2. Cognition of Bible doctrine

This is learning how to use God’s power and set aside our power.

Our power is related to failure.
God’s power is related to victory.

parakleton –

even the Spirit of truth, whom the world is not able to receive, because they neither see Him nor do they know Him, but you know Him because He lives with you, and will be in you.”

“par plus the personal pronoun humin” = describes the ministry of the Holy Spirit to the disciples during the dispensation of the hypostatic union.

“and He will be in you” is the prepositional phrase “en plus the locative plural, the personal pronoun humin” which describes the ministry of the Holy Spirit to Church-age believers.

This is the most radical spiritual thing that has ever occurred in all of human history and that will ever occur in human history.
EPH 6:10 Finally or from now on, be strong in the Lord,
in the Lord – en plus the instrumental of agency from kurios.

Divine power or the omnipotence of the God is available to each one of us as Church-age believers.

We need divine power because of the fact that Satan, as the ruler of this world, has maximum power which is utilized for evil.

Satan’s power is revealed by the fact that he is the highest of all angels, and ruler of all fallen angels
MAT 9:34; MAT 12:26; LUK 11:18‑19.

a helper, a counselor, someone who can instill wisdom into your soul and therefore a perfect illustration of the ministry of God the HS during the metabolization of B.D. Wives, – husbands
Husbands -wives,
Children -parents
Parents -children
Labor -management
Management -labor

[obedient] to your husbands in everything
EPH 5:25 Husbands, [agape] love your wives,
EPH 6:1 Children, obey your parents. with the marvelous information on integrity and divine power,
go forward.
This is a Grace idiom. =
that we are still alive and therefore we can make
some adjustments. the principle of management labor relationship. , Paul has taught them the principles behind marriage.
EPH 6:1-4, the principles behind parenthood, and parent – child relationship; = tou loipou
= “from now on;”
“for the future”
This refers to some very important principles which began in EPH 5:22.
