Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:9

2:9 But this ignorance of theirs fulfils what is written concerning the blessings of the Messiah's kingdom. No natural man hath either seen, heard, or known, the things which God hath prepared, saith the prophet, for them that love him. #Isaiah 64:4|

 

People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:9

1Co 2:9 As it is written. See Isa 54:4. There was no human conception, as shown by the prophet, of the glory to be revealed in the mystery of the gospel. And indeed that glory is still beyond the power of mere human conception.

God is wonderful indeed, i still cant tell why He loves us this much... no words can explain what awaits us home

This is only for a select group of people not the Sunday church goers or those who sit on a deacon board or play in the church choir and think that is salvation It s not for the fearful or the faithless or the liars or backbiters etc But this is for those who have died out to the world and surrendered all to God Those who call on the name of Jesus day and night The ones baptized by the Holy Ghost and the fire These are they who when they are tried and endure are found worthy to receive God s glory in their lives It pays to love God It pays to fear Him and to trust in His Word The Word of God is Jesus We can not even begin to comprehend what revelations and songs and prophecies and visions and wonderful works God has in store for those who love Him And who does Jesus says loves Him Those who keep His commandments Amen

God is awesome. We have no words to describe him. One day no more pain, no more suffering, no more living in a cursed and sinful world. What a great time that will be. Thank you Father!

this Scripture encourages me to perseverance in life .that there is blessings at the end of the tunnel once I love God .so I dont need to give up now.

 

Victoria's comment on 2013-11-14 08:23:26:

anything can happen for those who love the Lord .
God is full of surprises beyond our wildest dreams !
I know of a catholic woman who was very kind to someone . When the person died she left 5 houses to that catholic lady !Jesus also died! Just imagine what He has left us in his inheritance !

Praise the living God, who was, who is and who is to come, may His name be praised forever and evermore. This verse is so beautiful, i just loves it, it increases my faith so much, it gives me so much courage,knowing that as i am a child of God, having been made rightous and being the righousness of God in Christ Jesus, i love God so much,as He has made it possible for me to love Him through His Holy Sprit whom He has given freely to me in my union with Lord Jesus Christ. This verse is so rich,full of hope. This verse gives me assurance,to know that there is more for me. Thank you.

This scripture always it hits my mind,i always increase the love i have for God. This gives me an ***urance that my love for God is not in vein.

 

Charity Nyapokoto's comment on 2013-08-03 03:35:18:

This verse give me theg great honour to know that because i am born again ,i am chosen to see,to hear and to comprehend all what God has for me.the only one thing i have to do is to take the devine life , the gift of righteousness,the grace of God.all what is in God is given to me by his spirit.so this is only given to the born again children of God.those who are not born again can never comprehend what we have in christ jesus.this is hidden to the world.is only revealed to us the beloveth of God.pPraise God!!!!!!!!.

 

Glen's comment on 2013-07-28 09:45:51:

this was said ti me in a church in 2001 (I think)
my eyes have been opened since april this year 2013. it broke my heart to see what was happening , so much so that i honestly cried out to god for help. i called a minister in the middle of the night because i hadnt been able to sleep for approx 2 weeks . what i saw made me physicaly sick (honeslty ) after praying to god I was able to rest & get some sleep. this is all new to me. ive even been reading the bible to understand better. all ill say is that things are going to get very bad. so if you a re reading this i ask you to collect non perishable food & probably water. have a bible handy I have jehovas witness one & a study guide. if anyone is hungry it would be good to have something for them to eat. oh , have a bible handy. good luck . im thinking of you. love, glen

 

Keisha Johnson's comment on 2013-07-26 13:36:13:

As I read this scripture it reminds me that my greater is coming and regardless of what it may look like, God promises says that God has a plan to prosper me and eyes have not seen nor ears have heard what God has in store for me. I just have to remain humble, activate my faith and wait on the Lord!!!!!

 

Styles's comment on 2013-07-02 14:29:33:

I really love this scripture because we has individuals we cant look at people for their outward appears we must be spiritual at all time. For the spirit of carnality can creep in and make you beleive that all is well but God.God have the last say on your life. Prepare a table in the presence of your enemies.

 

Tally's comment on 2013-03-18 06:15:38:

This verse is an amazing example of the intensity of Godís love for us and the awesome sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Rhoda's comment on 2013-02-04 10:00:59:

Great verse! Very encouraging!

 

Zenaida Subrabas's comment on 2012-12-10 15:58:53:

The writer stressed the very limited capacity of man to imagine the things that God has prepared for His people for even man himself cannot imagine the beauty of the paradise prepared by God for those who truly love and adore Him. It is beyond description as a line of a song goes. If one can comprehend the truth of this verse wholeheartedly, undoubtedly, he would not fear physical death because it would be the gateway to this indescribable beauty. But the question is can we really say "I love you, Lord ". Without feeling a pinch of guilt for all we know we are not worthy to utter, knowing our sinfulness, most of all greed. Are we worthy of that prepared haven? Thanks be to the Lord Jesus for it is He that will make us worthy through the shed blood of His on the cross.

 

Shelly's comment on 2012-12-03 09:03:38:

You can't imagine and haven't given it a thought of the great things that are in store for you in your future; it's especially for them who love God.
