1Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts.(word 'gifts' not in original; means just the spiritual, spiritual things, the higher consciousness things), brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

1Corinthians 12:2 You know that you were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as you were led.

1Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calls Emmanuel accursed and that no man can say that Emmanuel is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

1Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man.(original for 'man' is 'one', so no one, encompassing more beings than man, which would include angels).speaking by the Spirit of God calls Emmanuel accursed.(meaning the life of Christ is on no benefit for mankind; a marker point denoting an attitude of ordinary consciousness as compared with that of a higher consciousness).and that no man.(original for 'man' is 'one').can say that Emmanuel is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

1Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

1Corinthians 12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

1Corinthians 12:6 And there are diversities of operations.(different workings), but it is the same God which works all in all..(it's the same God in each of us expressing differently; expressing as each of us is, when in higher consciousness, that is, living the high consciousness concepts in our daily lives:.Ephesians 1:23 "Which is his body, the fulness of him that fills all in all.")

Another translation: 'There are different workings but it's all the same spirit' but it's all man's spirit connected with the Soul; 1Corinthians 15:28; Ephesians 1:23.

1Corinthians 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

To affect others helpfully, to profit others, to benefit all; spirit needs to flow.

1Corinthians 12:8-10 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues.

1Corinthians 12:8-10 For to one is given by.(or 'through'; 'by means of').the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles.(original 'mighty works'; same original is in Mark 6:5); to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits.(being able to determine if another acts out of the Holy Spirit's momentum of love or some other motive); to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues.

1Corinthians 12:11 But all these work that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally.(differently).as he.(re: 'he', see verse 6).will.

There is something that is your deep passion that you are able to do better than anyone else on Earth; you should ask yourself, which asking connects you to your soul, what that specific thing may be, so that you can use it to benefit others and thus yourself, for we are all one: verse 7 above.

1Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one and has many members and all the members of that one body being many are one body, so also.(Hebrews 10:5).is Christ.

Paul is comparing the physical body of beings (members of the church back them {what is a church?}) to the spiritual body.

1Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized.(what about baptism today?).into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free and have been all made to drink into one Spirit..(the oneness of the universe)

1Corinthians 12:14 For the body.(the oneness of the universe as the Creator is all in all: verse 6 above).is not one member, but many.

Includes those alive and the spirits of those passed on and still alive (John 5:25), but some not as they were here on the 'pressure cooker' of Earth, as they want to return as spiritual growth is quicker for the self here; others including Bruno Gröning are content to be effective from the invisible realm where they now are, not really having need to again be here in the physical for spiritual growth as they have reached their purpose in eternity.

1Corinthians 12:15-19 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body?

1Corinthians 12:20-22 But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of you. Nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary.

1Corinthians 12:23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.

1Corinthians 12:24 For our comely parts have no need. But God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.

1Corinthians 12:25 That there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care one for another. 

1Corinthians 12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

1Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ and members in particular.

1Corinthians 12:28 And God has set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

1Corinthians 12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

1Corinthians 12:30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

1Corinthians 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts. And yet show I unto you a more excellent way.

1Corinthians 12:31 But covet.(original 'have a hot desire for' and 'earnestly desire'; be hot for the higher spiritual things as ancient David was).earnestly the best gifts. And yet show I unto you a more excellent way.(1Corinthians 13:1-8)..(better than such gifts {verses 1-12} which make one man distinct from another, is love, as the next chapter shows)
