About 1Corinthians

1Corinthians 1:1.Paul, called to be an apostle of Emmanuel Christ through the will of God and Sosthenes our brother,

1Corinthians 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Emmanuel, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Emmanuel the Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours.

1Corinthians 1:3 Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

1Corinthians 1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Emmanuel the Christ;

1Corinthians 1:5 That in every thing you are enriched by him, in all utterance and in all knowledge;

1Corinthians 1:7 So that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming.(written about 57 A.D. {*} 13 years before He came in 70 A.D.).of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

1Corinthians 1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that we may be blameless in the day.(2Corinthians 1:14, 1Thessalonians 5:9).of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

1Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, by whom you were called unto the fellowship of his Son Emmanuel the Christ our Lord..(it's a fellowship of the heart)

1Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you brethren by the name of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you brethren.(who is my brother?).by the name of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ, that you all speak the same thing.(that is, be of the same mind; that is, be all of love, be all in the higher consciousness things, God doesn't want each of us to be the same in expression and say the same exact words; we have all had different experiences) and that there be no divisions among you.(to be one in love and the things of love), but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind.(all souls are knit together {Colossians 2:2} in the invisible spirit realm, but are separated when people live from the ego level).and in the same judgment..(in the same judgment coming from those values of the oneness of the high consciousness mind)

1Corinthians 1:11 For it has been declared unto me of you my brethren by them which are of the house of Chloe that there are contentions among you.

1Corinthians 1:12 Now this I say, that every one of you says, I am of Paul and I of Apollos and I of Cephas and I of Christ..(why?)

1Corinthians 1:13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized.(*).in the name of Paul?

1Corinthians 1:14 I thank God that I baptized none of you but Crispus and Gaius;

1Corinthians 1:17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect..(Paul learned to keep simple what he was saying so others wouldn't get lost when listening to him and miss the essence of his intent, such as they would if they had to labor through a complicated.exegesis message)

1Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish, foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

1Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross.(meaning all about this central point of history being the crucifixion and resurrection of Emmanuel).is to them that perish.(those still in the mass mind, those on the regular pathway of mankind; those on the pathway of death, the perishing path), foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God..(?)

1Corinthians 1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

1Corinthians 1:19 For it is written.(from Isaiah 29:14);.Barnes New Testament Notes.comments: "...God would so execute his judgments as to confound their wise men and overwhelm those who boasted of their understanding. Those in whom they had confided and on whom they relied, should appear to be bereft of their wisdom and they should be made conscious of their own want of counsel to meet and remove the impending calamities. The apostle does not affirm that this passage in Isaiah refers to the times of the gospel. The contrary is manifestly true. But it expresses a general principle of the Divine administration, that the coming forth of God is often such as to confound human prudence in a manner which human wisdom would not have devised and in such a way as to show that he is not dependent on the wisdom of man"), I will destroy.(Barnes New Testament Notes:."that is, I will abolish or will not be dependent on it, or will show that my plans are not derived from the counsels of men").the wisdom of the wise and will bring to nothing the understanding.(original also means 'knowledge').of the prudent.

1Corinthians 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

1Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them.(Matthew 18:11).that believe..(and because this 'preaching of the gospel' thing is foolishness to the worldy wise, they skirt over it, not realizing that it is the very power of God)

The verse means, it was in the wisdom of God's plan at that time that He not be found by mankind's searching; but now, God is open to everyone for finding:.Acts 17:30; and so most people today have God effective in their lives to the extent of how much they allow:.2Timothy 3:5; John 15:19; the world has its wisdom, its philosophies, that is they know of God because they are mostly not fools today  {Psalms 14:1 "...The fool has said in his heart, There is no God..."; and what does God think of worldly wisdoms?.1Corinthians 3:19}; though the worldly wise may know of God, they hold back in letting the goodness of God affect them:.Romans 1:21,22; Job 24:1; comprised with.Adam Clarke's Commentary:.'the preaching of Christ crucified, the Gentiles termed foolishness, in opposition to their own worldy wise ways, which they termed wisdom. It was not by the foolishness of preaching, literally, nor by foolish preaching, that God saved the world, but by that Gospel which they called foolishness, which was, in fact, the wisdom of God and also the power of God to the salvation of them that believed':.Romans 1:16

1Corinthians 1:22 For the Jews require a sign and the Greeks seek after wisdom.

1Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock and unto the Greeks foolishness;

1Corinthians 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

1Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1Corinthians 1:26 For you see your calling brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.

Not many but some and why not many? because it would easy to slip into the former ways that got them by in life and this would take their heart away from the eternal purpose for them: 1Corinthians 2:9; Hebrews 2:1-5. Those in Corinth mentioned here knew who called them.

1Corinthians 1:27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.

1Corinthians 1:27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world.(those persons regarded as being foolish {which are those relying on their Creator and not their ego}; those who may not yet be called, might regard one's spiritual interest as foolish because they are still being ruled by their egos).to.(original is 'that'; it's not that God uses your example to harass those still steeped in their ego existence; God's not that way; He is kind:.Ephesians 2:7; Titus 3:4;.Luke 6:35 "...he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.").confound.(original is 'ashamed'; they'll come to see that they've missed something that you have that they then see that they need).the wise and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confoundthe things which are mighty.(those in the ego realm of living feel they need nothing {Revelation 3:17}, as with their egos they can handle life just fine ?)..(Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary: "God, in bestowing blessings upon his people, gives more to some than to others, more gifts, graces, and comforts, and more of the good things of this life. He often gives most to those who are least likely. He chooses the weak things of the world; he raises the poor out of the dust. Grace does not observe the order of nature, nor does God prefer those whom we think fittest to be preferred, but as it pleases him. How poor are those who have no riches but those of this world!").(?)

1Corinthians 1:28 And base things of the world and things which are despised.(original is 'least esteemed'), has God chosen, yea and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are.(showing by their lives what is important eternally is love).

The world built since mankind came here has been ego built; the time for the ego world is now over; the time for the kingdom of God has come..(?)

1Corinthians 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

1Corinthians 1:30 But of him are you in Christ Emmanuel, who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.

1Corinthians 1:30 But of him are you in Christ Emmanuel.(?), who of God.(it was the Creator, God the Father's plan to redeem you).is made unto us.(*).wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.{spiritual things}:.Romans 4:21-25..(Scofield Reference Bible Notes 1917, says that the righteousness of God is not an attribute of God and not the changed character of the believer, but Christ Himself who fully met in our stead and behalf every demand of the law and Who is the act of God called imputation) (see also 2Cornthians 5:21; Romans 3:26; 4:6; 10:4; Philippians 3:9)

1Corinthians 1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glories, let him glory in the Lord.

1Corinthians 2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.(1Corinthians 1:17,23,24).

1Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Emmanuel the Christ and him crucified..(in other words, 'I don't care about any sins you still may have, all I'm concerned about is how you are doing in God, because it's here that all else is looked after)

1Corinthians 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power..(we want you to go for the gold, not just pick up some pithy sayings)

1Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God..(so how do you get it?.Romans 1:16)

1Corinthians 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect. Yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought.

1Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the world unto our glory.

1Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery.(a mystery to those with ego understanding, but for those who are spiritually unfolding not so much {1Corinthians 13:12; Ecclesiastes 2:14}; on word 'mystery'), even the hidden wisdom.(words 'even' and 'wisdom' not in original; the esoteric meanings in the Bible are not readily evident 1, 2, 3).which God ordained before the world unto our glory.

1Corinthians 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew. For had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

1Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.

1Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written.(written from where:.Isaiah 64:4), Eye has not seen.(Job 28:7,20,21,23,26-28; 1Peter 1:12), nor ear heard, neither has entered into the heart of man.(his imagination), the things.(Daniel 12:3; 1Peter 1:4-25).which God has prepared.(prepared now on Earth and for now and far beyond 1, 2:.1Corinthians 15:24,28).for them that love him.(James 2:5)..(this is for those in rapport, in alignment with the Creator's purpose in them, a purpose involving the oneness of love, because in oneness there is only one being who wears different disguises {the same being is us, all different on the surface because of our nervous systems, our personalities, but all the same underneath, the same intelligent never ending energy from which we sprung and within which we all live, move and have our being: Acts 17:28}, therefore there is only the self, the illumined self, a being comprising all of us when in alignment with what the Creator is and Creator God is love and love comprises the things of high consciousness and here there is goodness; 2Peter 1:4).(?)

1Corinthians 2:10 But God has revealed them unto us by his Spirit, for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God.

1Corinthians 2:10 But God has revealed them unto us by his Spirit.(note that it's His spirit, the spirit of high consciousness, which you are ofifyou are connected by means of your soul; this is our aim, this is our destiny; note that it is not the things of the low ordinary consciousness that reveals to us high consciousness things; the things of low consciousness are a separation from the things of the spirit: 1Corinthians 15:34)(also see verse 12 below and Ephesians 1:17), for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God..(?)

1Corinthians 2:11 For what man knows the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knows no man.(*), but the Spirit of God.

1Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world.(Ephesians 2:2), but the spirit which is of God, that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

The things of living higher standards are understood when one has desire for spiritual things; they are not part of the worldly ego level; you get to know them by using them and thus comprehension deepens.

1Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.(as opposed to comparing physical things with spiritual).

1Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receives not.(the natural man who may also be a religious man prefers things which can relate to what he is like and what he is like is what he knows and what most religious people know is from that which has been taught to them by whatever church they may be in; this is what it was like for religious people in the time before Christ:.Hebrews 9:8,10).the things of the Spirit of God.(what keeps man from the things of the spirit?), for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually.(invisible).discerned..(it's saying that the Holy Spirit provides insight regarding spiritual things; how?)

One may have already decided that this spiritual stuff is foolish and not worthy of time away from ego concerns; one has to be of higher consciousness to understand the things of the spiritual realm, to unlock and awaken to the attributes of love and this requires change, so that such attributes can function in one's life, for we can only go in the life direction our heart is headed.

1Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

1Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judges.(judges or discerns).all things.(even his shadow side; he or she gets a correct sense from everything; what sense? but they who don't yet have the Holy Spirit are unable to see things as a spiritual person does), yet he himself is judged of no man.(that is, the unenlightened are incapable of seeing so as to properly ascertain the true intents of one who is spiritual and so they often make judgments that are erroneous; see verse 14 just above).

Why? Because he has learned what love does.

1Corinthians 2:16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have.the mind of Christ.

1Corinthians 2:16 For who has known.(Isaiah 40:28).the mind of the Lord.(the 'Lord' has to do with the mind, obviously what may be in the mind, what is of the mind and these are invisible higher frequencies way beyond the physicalness of earthly things and things of the known universe; these are the things of a higher consciousness.than that of ordinary mankind; these are the things to have in mind if mankind is to progress spiritually into eternity), that he may instruct him?.(without knowing the mind of the Lord, we end up instructing God as it were, with some compilation of our own 'righteousness', such perhaps as some acclaimed.prophet having some alleged special message he or she claims is from God for you:.Barnes Notes:."...And as no one can fully understand God by nature, so neither can he or she understand him who is influenced by God.{that is, no one can know you as well yourself, because you know where you stand [Ephesians 1:12-23] in your spiritual growth in Christ}.and is like him.{John 10:34}...".Without the mind of Christ how can we have a mind for spiritual concerns?).But we have.(*).the mind.(Romans 11:34).of Christ.(having the mind of Christ means one is in and of Christ and of the Creator-Father {*}).
