Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 5:7


5:7 For we cannot clearly see him in this life, wherein we walk by faith only: an evidence, indeed, that necessarily implies a kind of seeing him who is invisible; yet as far beneath what we shall have in eternity, as it is above that of bare, unassisted reason.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 5:7


2Co 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. It is by faith here that we see the Lord, though absent from him.

    2 Cor. 5:19 - To wit, God was in Christ .....;Jesus is God Himself. As man, Jesus had compassion, love; as God He opened blind eyes, healed the lame; H (God) took 5 loaves, 2 fishes, fed 5,000. It was a man who said, "of myself I can do nothing"; but it was God who said, "When you have seen me you have seen the Father". A man wept at Lazarus' tomb; God said, Lazarus, come forth. No trinity. ONE.
