6:1 Dare any of you having a matter against another go to law before
the unjust and not before the saints.(a
lesson on this from the Old Testament:.2Chronicles
is saying, Are you so off base spiritually that you can't work out your
problems with each other?
6:2 Do you not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the
world shall be judged by you are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
6:3 Know you not that we shall judge angels.(*)?
How much more things that pertain to this life.
to this life? We do things and others do things, so about
22:30. What about.2Corinthians
1Corinthians 6:4,5 If then you
have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who
are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that
there is not a wise man among you? No, there isn't one who is able to judge
between his brethren.
6:4,5 If then you have judgments of things pertaining to this life,
set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.(consider
the poor amongst you:.Ephesians
4:2,3; Ephesians 4:32; Colossians
3:12-15; James 2:6).
I speak to your shame.(what
have you done to help your brother who may be in need?.Matthew
23:5,6). Is it so, that there is not a
wise man among you.(you
have no sense to do good to those in need)?
No, there isn't one who is able to judge between his brethren.
6:6 But brother goes to law with brother and that before the unbelievers.
Paul is here
explaining that you just treat everbody as though they are all making out
fine. Why? Matthew 7:3-6. The Corinthian
church was known.(1Corinthians
3:1-4 and verses 6-8 below here).for
being the most carnal
of all the churches back then.
5:25; 1Corinthians 3:16;
6:7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you because
you go to law one with another. Why do you not
take wrong? Why do you not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
6:8 Nay, you do wrong and defraud and that your brethren.
1Corinthians 6:9 Know you
not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived.
Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor
abusers of themselves with humanity.
6:9 Know you not that the unrighteous.(just
a word they used way back when, to describe the low consciousness we all
slide into by default about the age of three).shall
for 'inherit' is 'to receive by lot';
in other words, the unrighteous, those of the low consciousness ego level
won't be 'chosen' because they are still in the low consciousness ego level
for whatever reasons they are still there:.Matthew
22:14. To be 'chosen' one must be of the higher consciousness level,
not actually 'chosen' as if chosen apart from others (Acts
17:30), just a word they used as best they could to describe the spiritual
kingdom of God? Be not deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor
adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with humanity..('abusers
of themselves with humanity' refers to homosexuals in the original. Basically
the verse is talking of an attitude that precludes
the growth of a
relationship with the Great Infinite One, for what else should ever
have the preeminence?
with such vices
have chosen the life they want to live. It's just showing here that anything
that one is consumed by is not for his ultimate good. Only higher consciousness
ways are for everyone's ultimate good:.2Corinthians
6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners,
inherit the kingdom of God.
6:11 And such were some of you.(Titus
3:3-7). But now you
are washed, but now you are sanctified
and justified in the name of the Lord.Emmanuel
and by the Spirit of our God.
6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient.
All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power
about how we all were at the ego, low consciousness level in our lives,
wanted something better for ourselves and others we love and now are on
that pathway of something better. The verbs in the verse show that it's
a process. The verbs are aorist,
passive and indicative.
here determines that he will be in control of all things regarding
his life, so that they won't have control over him to any detriment,
speaking of course mostly of negative things, such as alcohol dependency,
living life raucously,
6:14 And God has both raised up the Lord
and will also raise up us.('raised
us up' in original is awakening from sleep; being asleep to the higher
consciousness things, being asleep because your
ego has you blinded to the things of the spirit).by
'own' not in original).power.
6:15 Know you not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall
I then take the members of Christ and make them the members of an harlot?
6:16 What? know you not that he which is joined to an harlot is one
body? For two says he, are one flesh.
6:17 But he that is joined
unto the Lord.(what's
the Lord? and how are we
do we all have the same faith and
what about amounts of it?
6:18 Flee fornication.
Every sin that a man does is without the body, but he that commits fornication
sins against his own body.
1Corinthians 6:19 What?
Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which
have of God and you are not your own?
6:19 What? Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy
'your acting as though you are not aware that the Creator
is in you, because you are not using the powerful life changing gift
God gave you and instead acting like you have been in separation from the
which you have of God.(it
was and still is a gift:.Acts
2:38; 10:45; Romans
you are not your own?
6:20 For you
are bought with a price. Therefore glorify
God in your body and in your spirit,
which are God's..
2:38 "...receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
10:45 "...the gift of the Holy Ghost."
And it's good
each of us is 'not our own', because God looks after those who love Him
(Luke 11:11-13), those aligned
with God (*):.Hebrews
No longer belonging
to the beliefs you held close when you were fragmented.
the original has it, 'you're not yourself', that is, were not then, not
whole, no wholeness; well then, just
are you? and how to get God's attention on you:.Isaiah
66:2. And what's your part
in it all?
are in the universal consciousness of good when we prefer to
focus on those qualities
of higher consciousness that remove us from evil (Matthew
6:13), but sometimes
we need a little help. A lot of help has been provided, but most people
remain unaware of this. What help has been provided that you could use
this instant? Here it is! Use
can also mean 'which is God' that is, you've given attention to God in
you and this brings it
out. Your body and your spirit is God when your attention is on that
and when it is, you're of higher consciousness than the low consciousness
thinking that is the normaility of humanity.
