2Corinthians 10:1 Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence.(outward appearance).am base.(humiliated.{in circumstances or disposition} base, cast down, humble, of low degree {estate}, lowly).among you, but being absent am bold toward you..(Paul was bold in his letters, but his physical appearance belied his effectiveness)

2Corinthians 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh we do not war after the flesh..(Paul means here that the warfare for high consciousness people is a spiritual warfare, not the fleshly warfare that leads man further from spirituality. The common warfare of ordinary consciousness persons is a dark side trick to keep the world away from spiritual growth)

2Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons.(one weapon we have; others:.Ephesians 6:10-18; 1Timothy 1:18; 2Timothy 2:3-5).of our warfare.(?).are not carnal.(of the low consciousness ego level), but mighty through God.(the high consciousness things).to the pulling down of strong holds.

Things of the ego that keep your soul in prison and away from the flow of higher consciousness things Christ came to reveal to mankind from the Father that would set you free.

Why is God called the 'Father'? Because from Him comes everything. The Father is the intelligence in the oneness that created all, even his son, called the Word. The Soul is the mother of us all. In these things is revealed even the power to keep you from your own faults:.2Samuel 22:24 "...have kept myself from mine iniquity."

2Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations.(our thoughts).and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.(the knowledge of God is His high consciousness ways; many thoughts we have snuff Godly based concerns out of us).and bringing into captivity.(make sure that all your thoughts are in line with love, in line with the good, because."thoughts are spiritual forces"....Bruno Gröning).every thought to the obedience of Christ.(what is.'Christ'?);

2Corinthians 10:6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience.(original for 'disobedience' is 'hearing amiss' or the knowledge errors you have lived life up to now with:.1Thessalonians 5:21), when your obedience is fulfilled.

2Corinthians 10:7 Do you look on things after the outward appearance?.(*).If any man trust to himself that he is Christ, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ, even so are we Christ..(in the original Paul is saying that if one believes that he is equal with Christ, let him not be puffed up by this, but realize that this is true of the rest of us also:.John 10:30 "I and my Father are one.")

2Corinthians 10:8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord has given us for edification and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed,

2Corinthians 10:9,10 That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters. For his letters say they, are weighty and powerful, but his bodily presence is weak and his speech contemptible.

2Corinthians 10:11 Let such an one think this, that such as we are in word by letters when we are absent such will we be also in deed when we are present.

2Corinthians 10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves, but they measuring themselves by themselves and comparing themselves among themselves are not wise.

2Corinthians 10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number.(or, make ourselves the same as those that).or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves.(Luke 18:9-14), but they measuring themselves.(typical of the low consciousness ego level of living).by.(original for 'by' can also mean 'among' which fits here better with the context).themselves and comparing themselves among themselves.(making judgments).are not wise..(?).(?)

2Corinthians 10:13,14 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God has distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you. We stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you.(didn't use hyperboles in speaking to you, which would have taken our message away from you, placing it somewhere above the general.ability to comprehend), for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ.

2Corinthians 10:15 Not boasting of things without our measure.(he's saying our message is all about the gospel of Christ {Romans 1:16; 10:15} and we stick within that framework), that is, of other men's labours, but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly..(we'll be happy that our efforts brought forth in you those eternal spiritual things {1Corinthians 9:22}; that is, they were enlarged in heart, they grew spiritually and because of the dedication of the leaders Paul and others; a leader is one who is ahead of others, until these others grow into full formation:.Galatians 4:19); Colossians 2:2)

2Corinthians 10:18 For not he that commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends.
