Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.”


When you allow hirelings to teach, they as leaders are sharing half-truths, they are being led by man, not the Holy Spirit. People laugh, when you show them what Paul revealed in Romans 1:22-24 “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”
Not many if none, in this form of leadership will admit this. These leaders are like the sculptors who used their skills to create the finest representation of their deities into human figures.

In the same sense, these hirelings, use their worldly skills to change the glory of the uncorruptible God, into an image made like to corruptible man. As a result of this action, you see this kind of information being passed as acceptable Christianity.


When in fact, what you have is what Paul revealed in Rom. 1:24. God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves. The following is Matthew Henry commentary in regards to Ephesians 4:18,19

The more general exhortation to purity and holiness of heart and life 1. It begins thus, “That you henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, that for the time to come you do not live, and behave yourselves, as ignorant and unconverted heathens do, who are wholly guided by an understanding employed about vain things, their idols and their worldly possessions, things which are no way profitable to their souls, and which will deceive their expectations” Converted Gentiles must not live as unconverted Gentiles do.

Though they live among them, they must not live like them. Here, (1) The apostle takes occasion to describe the wickedness of the Gentile world, out of which regenerate Christians were snatched as brands out of the burning [1] Their understandings were darkened, Ephesians 4:18.

They were void of all saving knowledge yea, ignorant of many things concerning God which the light of nature might have taught them. They sat in darkness, and they loved it rather than light: and by their ignorance, they were alienated from the life of God.

They were estranged from and had a dislike and aversion to, a life of holiness, which is not only that way of life which God requires and approves, and by which we live to him, but which resembles God himself, in his purity, righteousness, truth, and goodness.

Their wilful ignorance was the cause of their estrangement from this life of God, which begins in light and knowledge. Gross and affected ignorance is destructive to religion and godliness. And what was the cause of their being thus ignorant? It was because of the blindness or the hardness of their heart. It was not because God did not make himself known to them by his works, but because they would not admit the instructive rays of the divine light.

They were ignorant because they would be so. Their ignorance proceeded from their obstinacy and the hardness of their hearts, their resisting the light and rejecting all the means of illumination and knowledge [2] Their consciences were debauched and seared: Who being past feeling, Ephesians 4:19. They had no sense of their sin, nor of the misery and danger of their case by means of it whereupon they gave themselves over unto lasciviousness.

They indulged themselves in their filthy lusts and, yielding themselves up to the dominion of these, they became the slaves and drudges of sin and the devil, working all uncleanness with greediness. They made it their common practise to commit all sorts of uncleanness, and even the most unnatural and monstrous sins, and that with insatiable desires.
Observe, When men’s consciences are once seared, there are no bounds to their sins. When they set their hearts upon the gratification of their lusts, what can be expected but the most abominable sensuality and lewdness, and that their horrid enormities will abound?


Christians must distinguish themselves from such Gentiles: You have not so learned Yeshua, Ephesians 4:20. It may be read, But you not so you have learned Yeshua.
Those who have learned Yeshua are saved from the darkness and defilement that others lie under and, as they know more, they are obliged to live in a better manner than others.

It is a good argument against sin that we have not so learned Yeshua.
Learn Yeshua! Is Yeshua a book, a lesson, a way, a trade? The meaning is, “You have not so learned the doctrines of Yeshua and the rules of life prescribed by him. Not so as to do as others do. If so be, or since, that you have heard him (Ephesians 4:21), have heard his doctrine preached by us, and have been taught by him, inwardly and effectually, by his Spirit” Yeshua is the lesson we must learn Yeshua: and Yeshua is the teacher we are taught by him. As the truth is in Yeshua.

This may be understood two ways: either, “You have been taught the real truth, as held forth by Yeshua himself, both in his doctrine and in his life” Or thus, “The truth has made such an impression on your hearts, in your measure, as it did upon the heart of Yeshua” The truth of Yeshua then appears in its beauty and power when it appears as in Yeshua.

Matthew Henry Commentary on 1Corinthians 6:18 sheds light on why Yeshua choose to turn these individuals over to a “Reprobate Mind.”

The body is not for fornication; it was never formed for any such purpose, but for the Lord, for the service and honour of God. It is to be an instrument of righteousness to holiness ({cf11ul Rom 6:19}), and therefore is never to be made an instrument of uncleanness. It is to be a member of Yeshua, and therefore must not be made a member of a harlot, {cf11ul 1Co 6:15}. And the Lord is for the body, that is, as some think, Yeshua is to be Lord of the body, to have property in it and dominion over it, having assumed a body and been made to partake of our nature, that he might be head of his church, and head over all things, {cf11ul Heb 2:5}, {cf11ul Heb 2:18}. Note, We must take care that we do not use what belongs to Yeshua as if it were our own, and much less to his dishonour.


“Father in Heaven, I place your children before your throne, knowing Father there is nothing hidden from you. I am appealing to you, Lord, that all hidden secrets in our hearts be revealed through you, for their acceptance and correction by your servants. Praying Father, for deep discernment, to be placed in our souls. Bring an understanding of your works now and in the future. This I pray in your name Yeshua, Amen, and Amen.”


Remember, I am only the messenger doing as my Father (Yahewa) has called me to do as a “Watchman”” share His warnings to His children, so they will know of His presence. You now must decide your position in this walk with our Father and His Son Yeshua. Blessings and Peace be before you as you chose your journey’s path.The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects the One who sent Me (Luke 10:16).
