 It is nearness of heart to God that produces simplicity, and that enables us in simplicity to enjoy the blessings of God. (Ephesians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 Now Christ stands in two relationships with God, His Father. He is a perfect man before His God; He is a Son with His Father. We are to share both these relationships. (Ephesians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 He is God, and He is Father. And our blessings are connected with this (that is, with His perfect nature as God, and with the intimacy of a positive relationship with Him as Father). (Ephesians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 He is a perfect man before His God; He is a Son with His Father. We are to share both these relationships. This He announced to His disciples ere He went back to heaven….our blessings are in connection with these two titles. (Ephesians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 {the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ} These two titles are the key to the epistle. (Remarks on Ephesians 1:1-3 by W. Kelly)
 He teaches us that death and resurrection gave Him title in God's righteousness to put us in His position. (Remarks on Ephesians 1:1-3 by W. Kelly)
 We are not displayed in {heavenly places} yet, nor is it a question of feeling. May we believe it! Feelings may deceive me, but faith never can. If I see a thing, it is merely my eye that sees. If I believe a truth on God's word, I am looking at it, in a measure, so to speak, with God's eyes. The world has a notion that faith only implies confidence as to a thing which is not sure. This is not the meaning of “I believe” in the things of God. My own vision is a poor range of sight; but what of God's eye! The believer stands upon the highest ground; he rests upon the certainty of what God says. (Remarks on Ephesians 1:1-3 by W. Kelly)
 The expression “heavenly places” is in contrast with the portion of the Jews, who were blessed in earthly places. (Remarks on Ephesians 1:1-3 by W. Kelly)
 {The Israelite's} portion will always be under their Messiah, to be blessed by Him as an earthly people. But ours, who believe in Christ now, will be to have the same blessing which God the Father confers upon Christ risen from the dead. (Remarks on Ephesians 1:1-3 by W. Kelly)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us withc every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ;

JND Translation Notes

+
c
"With" does not quite give the force. The preposition (en) here conveys something of the power and value of what is enjoyed; gives the blessing characteristically. see Note c, Matt. 3.11.
