The following is my Alternate Translation of Ephesians 6:5. I am sending it to you because it is exactly what you experienced when you called me last week:
5 Employees, subordinate yourselves to the authorities who have a legitimate rule over you, and be alarmed [at the possibility of your disobedience to secular authority resulting in the separation of] Christ [Jesus], the single column [of God’s corrective judgment] in your heart center, [into the First and Second Adam, because Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind of the First Adam, enforces Jehovah’s righteous Sowing & Reaping Judgment, without mercy],
You were disobeying the authority over you and the result was that you lost an overtime shift. This was Satan enforcing the Sowing & Reaping Judgment. But you called me and I explained to you that even though it was your day off, and the authority was wrong in her supervisory discretion, you were still obliged to submit to her decision to switch to the shift that she wanted you to work. But, when you called to apologize and submit to her decision, another officer intervened and you not only recovered the lost overtime shift, but the shift that you preferred was restored to you. The Lord cancelled Satan's enforcement of the Sowing & Reaping Judgment!!
