About 2Corinthians

2Corinthians 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Emmanuel the Christ by the will of God and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia.

2Corinthians 1:2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

2Corinthians 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.(in the original the word "comfort" means "consolation" and comes from a root meaning, 'to call you close', how close?);

2Corinthians 1:4 Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them.(1Thessalonians 5:14).which are in any trouble, by the comfort.(*).wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

2Corinthians 1:5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us.(the apostle Paul's experience:.Romans 8:18), so our consolation also abounds by Christ.

2Corinthians 1:6 And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer; or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation..(Paul's heart was all for the benefit of others; he understood love)

2Corinthians 1:7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so shall you be also of the consolation.

2Corinthians 1:8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life.

2Corinthians 1:9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raises the dead;

2Corinthians 1:10 Who delivered us from so great a death and does deliver. In whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;

2Corinthians 1:11 You also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.

2Corinthians 1:12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you ward.

2Corinthians 1:14 As also you have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as you also are ours in the day of the Lord Emmanuel.

2Corinthians 1:19 For the Son of God, Emmanuel the Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yes and no, but in him was yes.

2Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in him are yea and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

2Corinthians 1:21 Now he which establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us, is God;

2Corinthians 1:22 Who has also sealed us and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

Meaning it is an internal spiritual thing; we have been given enough to be on the road of higher consciousness where the supply to us increases as we use it to develop deeper spirituality; because of this direction we are in a state of perfection and will continually abide therein:.Colossians 3:14; Hebrews 13:5 "...for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you."

2Corinthians 1:23 Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.

2Corinthians 1:24 Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy; for by faith you stand.

2Corinthians 2:6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many.

2Corinthians 2:12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,

2Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ and makes manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

2Corinthians 2:15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved and in them that perish.(original 'are perishing'; why?)..(notes on 2Corinthians 2:15)

2Corinthians 2:16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient.(who is worthy or deserves).for these things?

2Corinthians 2:17 For we are not as many which corrupt the word of God, but as of sincerity and as of God and in sight of God, speak we in Christ.

2Corinthians 2:17 For we are not as many which corrupt.(a huckster, to peddle, to get money by any means, as many corrupt ancient 'leaders' did; to get money any way one can).the word of God, but as of sincerity and as of God and in sight of God, speak we in Christ.

2Corinthians 3:3 Forasmuch as you are manifestly declared to be the epistle.(as if written down in a letter).of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God.(Ephesians 2:10); not in tables of stone.(*), but in fleshy tables of the heart..(1John 4:9)

2Corinthians 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves, but our sufficiency is of God.

2Corinthians 3:6 Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter but of the spirit. For the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.

2Corinthians 3:6 Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter.(meaning of, 'of the letter': the literalness.the ego demands:.Romans 2:29; 7:6.Lliving by the letter is wanting to know the fine lines of right and wrong so it can regulate itself because it abhors the ways of love:.Romans 13:10; 3:10-17; Philippians 3:9; 1Timothy 6:4-8).but of the spirit. For the letter kills, but the spirit.(get to know the things of the spirit).gives life.

2Corinthians 3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses.(Exodus 35:33-35).for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away.

2Corinthians 3:8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?

2Corinthians 3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation.(condemnation to death, see verse 7 above).be glory, much more does the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.

2Corinthians 3:10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excels.

2Corinthians 3:11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remains.(original is 'abides'; John 8:35).is glorious.

2Corinthians 3:13 And not as Moses which put a vail over his face that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished.

2Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were blinded. For until this day remains the same vail untaken away in the reading.(original 'to read to know').of the old testament, which vail is done away in Christ..(the vail was a vail of separation)

2Corinthians 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

2Corinthians 3:16 Nevertheless when whosoever shall turn to the Lord, the vail is taken away.

2Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit. And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

2Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit. And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

And where is that spirit of the Lord? the word 'liberty' comes from a root word meaning 'freeborn' 'unfettered coming and going in one's affairs', 'freeman'.."Freedom only works if everyone gets to use it.".More.Micah 4:4,; 1Corinthians 7:22.

2Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass.(a mirror as held in front of you {keeping your attention focused on the things of higher consciousness.[Proverbs 4:25-27; Jude 1:21; 2Timothy 1:13,14]}; with a mirror we allow light to illuminate the face; it's saying here that the light of the gospel enables the mind to be illuminated in a process that changes us over time to be as the Great Infinite One is; that is, to become motivated in thinking as the thinking that is harmonious with what this phrase 'being in Christ' means, which is being motivated with love).the glory of the Lord, are changed into.(being changed into).the same image.(what does us being changed 'into the same image of God' mean?).from glory to glory.(many levels of higher consciousness).even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2Corinthians 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty; not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully but by manifestation of the truth.commending ourselves to every man's conscience.in the sight of God.

2Corinthians 4:2 But have renounced.(original is to admit so as to separate from, how?).the hidden things of dishonesty.(Habakkuk 2:14; 2Timothy 3:6; darkness hides many things {1Corinthians 4:5} yet to be resolved by love), not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience.(treat people properly; we are all connected and their spirit will recognize yours).in the sight of God..(Romans 6:21)

2Corinthians 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost.

Original for 'lost' is 'separated', many are still separated from the Father, with Whom they once had a relationship before they were in the physical; what is there that separates them? and how are they awakening?

2Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world.has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God.(man too), should shine unto them..(who's this 'god of this world'?.John 8:23; 14:30; Ephesians 2:2; Revelation 12:9)

It's now the time for everybody to come to an overstanding of what God really is and as the ancient Sumerians recorded, the two Gods, the one good, the other not good; the now time for awakening spiritually as most are still sleepwalking according to the long ago set "course of the world".

2Corinthians 4:6 For God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness has shined in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Emmanuel the Christ.

2Corinthians 4:10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Emmanuel, that the life also of Emmanuel might be made manifest.in our body.

2Corinthians 4:11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Emmanuel's sake that the life also of Emmanuel might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

2Corinthians 4:11.original for this verse:."For we which live are perpetually given from death thanks to Emmanuel's life manifest in us.".(what does "delivered unto death" or "given from death" mean here? It's talking about:.Matthew 10:39; John 10:11,15)

2Corinthians 4:14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Emmanuel shall raise up us also by.('by' or 'because of').Emmanuel and shall present us with you.

2Corinthians 4:15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God..

Original of this verse is."For everything through or by reason of, or on account of those your superabundances regarding those things which bring joy and pleasure, are made to abound or come about and come into your life through being thankful for this great abundance resulting from thinking like God."

2Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day..(makes sense then to live from the inward man, the soul)

2Corinthians 4:17 For our light affliction.(amazing what Paul calls his 'light affliction'), which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.(*);

2Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Don't allow the depressing things of the world to take your focus off the things in life that last beyond it, the higher consciousness things to live that bring you an eternal reward. We're here to move there!.(*)
