7:1 Having therefore these promises,
dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves.(how).from
is 'to pollute so as to stain black' or, harmful habits; the low consciousness
thoughts and ways that cling
to a person because of regular feeding of them).of
the flesh and spirit.(filthiness
of spirit involves how the ego
leads one into depravity
and ultimate destruction through what he or she thinks in the mind),

7:4 Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying
of you. I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation.
7:6 Nevertheless God, that comforts
those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus.
7:9 Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that you sorrowed
to repentance, for you were made sorry after a godly manner, that you might
receive damage by us in nothing.
7:10 For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation
not to be repented of.(in
other words, it lasts, so no
need for continual repentance, but the sorrow of the
taking one down the river of no
return and so we have the scourge
7:11 For behold this selfsame thing, that you sorrowed after a godly
sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves,
yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement
desire, yea, what zeal,
yea, what revenge.(a
setting of the mind to now get it right; that is, get into harmony with
the laws of the universe that allow for things to work as they should)!
In all things you have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
7:15 And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, whilst he
remembered the obedience of you all, how with fear
and trembling you received him.
