The gospel must be preached to all creatures so they can be found and not lost.

 


D Camero's comment about verse 8 on 11/06/2013, 7:21pm...

He who are in Christ Jesus are guaranteed to suffer persecution but will not be destroyed because of Christ mercy, love and strength that he gives
will us to overcome. Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord.

Verse 17-We tend to feel that what we are going through is too heavy to bear, but this scripture reminds us that our affliction is light(although it may feel heavy) and only last for a moment. The moment can be 1 day, 1 month, 1 year or 10 years depending on God's time frame for the situation, but it will not last forever. Also, our affliction works for us(not against us). Remember that all things WORK together for the good of them that love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. This is so that God gets the glory out of your affliction. God is awesome because he allows our afflictions to be slaves to us(work). In the end, it will all work out for our good!!

We will be presented together not at each individuals death as is taught by most. at the resurrection as in John 5:28-29

 


Aina Mobolaji Temitope's comment about verse 18 on 10/15/2013, 7:00am...

Everything in this life is certainly a temporary affair. Because life is temporary, all things, imaginable and unimaginable will eventually pass away. The things which are unseen are permanent and eternal. And it is the Spirit that can not be seen,hence it is only what the Spirit produces that are eternal; love,joy,patience...

Wilbur Lee Salway's comment about verse 4 on 9/12/2013, 10:20am...

Here is a very pivotal verse teaching us that the reason that the unbeliever does not understand the Gospel is because they have been blinded to it by Satan. Not only has Satan blinded the unbeliever to the true Gospel, he has successfully filled that belief void with one of his own inventions. For example, a person who is void of the Gospel can be filled with the belief in evolution. A person who is void of the Gospel can be filled with the belief in religion. A person who is void of the Gospel can be filled with belief in the occult. This is why it is basically futile to debate an unbeliever in any field because they will not have the ability to understand until or unless God saves them. Then, and only then, will they be able to understand. We must also realize that Satan is not omnipresent and cannot be everywhere, so he does not personally blind every unbeliever in the world. Instead, he sets up false systems of religion, or science and then finds someone, like Darwin, who he can deceive and then the wheels are set in motion. Today, millions believe in evolution just because of one man. Look at Islam which has over one billion followers based upon the book of one man. Satan need not be all over, all he has to do is start a religion and it will keep millions blinded and will continually gain adherents. The only way anyone can be freed from these satanic systems, is to become saved and then the glorious light of the gospel will show through, revealing the errors in the system the person was just saved from. So do not be angered when you come upon someone who is unsaved and gives you a hard time for bringing the gospel. It is because they are dead and do not understand and will not unless they become saved. (Eph 4:18 KJV) Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

2 corithians 4:9 is a verse that reminds us that nomatter what trials we might go through,God is always there to strengthen us

 


Emmanual's comment on 8/29/2013, 3:56am...

2 corinthians 4:3, our gospel is hiden to those who are lost, which means if it is not hiden to you then you are found so be personal in salvation, don't look at your friends because you have an individual assignment.

 


Friday james's comment about verse 7 on 8/24/2013, 7:25am...

We need to discover the hidden treasures of our personality,potentials,abilities,and power God put in us.

 


Victor's comment about verse 7 on 8/16/2013, 1:30am...

Here Paul refers to the treasure of eternal life and light of God we received when we got saved.the ministry of reconciliation has been given to us and we are able to do it because We have the light of the knowledge of God's glory.its not ourselves but he who called us n gave us this treasure

 


Jeff's comment about verse 9 on 8/04/2013, 9:09am...

Its helping us to understand that even through we going through some trails. Its for us to be strong in the Lord.

 


Lonwabo Mhlope's comment on 7/19/2013, 1:14pm...

The same spirit that we carry is working in us only if our spirit man is awake, it must be able to communicate with spirit, it also have to separate the good and the bad.

 


Sunny's comment about verse 13 on 6/03/2013, 4:19pm...

God spoke the world into existence with the breath of his spirit, and said "it is good" When we ask Jesus into our hearts and try to do as God would have us to do, we share that same spirit, so we also can speak, what God knows is good into existence with the breath of the spirit.

 


Evalena Jacobs-Latham's comment about verse 11 on 3/19/2013, 8:40am...

We daily give up the ways of the flesh in every situation, so that Jesus’ righteousness will be seen in us. Thank you Jesus for your wisdom, and Holy Spirit who leads and guides us in life.

 


R. D. Mattock's comment on 3/08/2013, 4:52pm...

On verse 1, Webster says that Mercy is the goodness of God sent to relieve misery. I differ, Webster was a man who coined definitions. Mercy is much greater than that. In the Old Testament when God’s people were outnumbered by enemies that surrounded them, God told them to bring the praisers out. Then God told them what to say. “Praise the Lord, his Mercy endureth forever.” Mercy is deployed to defeat enemies. Mercy becomes one of the most powerful combatant elements of God’s nature. Have you ever thought of Mercy as being combatant?

 


Bro bongani's comment about verse 7 on 2/20/2013, 2:14pm...

It means in our bodies we carry treasures with us, wherever we go and therefore need to realize that; and explore how great we were created...

 


Melody Sells's comment on 12/12/2012, 4:04am...

This chapter is very inspiring. A few verses stood out like verses 8 and 9.On this past Sunday our family car was reposed. This my husband feel really bad and down but when he went to church, the pastor spoke on those two scriptures and my husband had peace in the mist of our storm. It was an on time word. As I read the word this morning verses 17 and 18 stuck out it was basically saying the things that we go through on earth are nothing compared to the joy and the peace we will have when we get to heaven. And verse 18 is saying we are looking at everything that is going on around us but we need to focus on the bigger picture, the things we know God has promised us if we hold on. God bless.

 


S. NESBITT's comment about verse 9 on 11/23/2012, 11:37am...

2 Corinthians 4:9 reminds us that God will take care of us, no matter what we are going through. God is greater than our problems, situations and circumstances. God Bless.

 


Leeman's comment on 11/13/2012, 8:55am...

Such a pertinent verse of Holy Scripture to me as I am currently warring with so many temptations on a daily basis and sometimes convince myself that I am "all alone." Then, by God's grace, my mind is drawn back to the Word of God. I heard 2 Corinthians 4:13-18 on Family Life Radio this morning...Just in time.

 


Achoko's comment on 9/25/2012, 9:22pm...

In verse 18 Paul is so careful to say, yet not focusing on the things that are seen because they are temporal, but on that which is unseen, am sure he meant the spiritual things...today we look so much on the seen ones to determine who we are and where we are going in life, we are walking by sight by faith in the spirit of God. This verse reminds us to look back to God and not to things around us. Amen

 


Daniel's comment about verse 7 on 1/24/2012, 6:41am...

we are the treasures of the Lord. he cherishes us and value us. that is why he has given us the treasure of the great task of preaching the good news to All, who are in the dark.

 


SAMUEL FELIX's comment about verse 1 on 12/30/2011, 5:08pm...

The Apostil writes these letters to members of the church that Jesus Christ, who was sent by God, had established! These members, thou they had faith before Christ, needed to be restored daily as they were baptised in Christ(the church of the Apostils), who was the first High Priest and Apostil of our doctrine, the members were all served Holy communion, and they were sealed with the Holy Ghost By the laying on of the hands of an Apostil of Jesus Christ, thus completing the transformation from flesh to spirit. This scripture has been maid availible to the whole world in preperation for the coming of the Son of God who is no longer one individual member but is the Glorified Body: 1 Chorinthians 12 v 27 Many members one body! Jesus Christ is alive in this flesh!

 


Susan Dalton's comment on 12/07/2011, 10:16pm...

"For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh." (II Corinthians 4:11)

Some may ask why some believers seem to have so many trials and afflictions. Some may erroneously
say the person has sin in their life and they are being chastised.

Paul says we which live are always delivered unto death.

We are always delivered unto death for...for what reason? That the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

Death is seen so that the life of Jesus also may be seen.

II Corinthians 2:14 says, "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place."

The "savour of his knowledge" is made manifest by us. God uses us to manifest the savour of his knowledge. What a priviledge that he uses us. That savour is victory over death. We can always triumph over death, hell, powers, principalities, etc. in Christ. The savour of God's knowledge is manifested by us in every place. Wherever we are, if we are delivered unto death, we are the ones God has chosen to manifest the savour of his knowledge in that place.

I think of God looking down upon earth and seeing all things, sees what place needs a savour of his knowledge. And then he sends one of his into that place. He then allows them to go unto death. In death, now the life of Christ is seen. There is now manifested the savour of God's knowledge in that place.

God makes manifest the savour of his knowledge "by us" "in every place."

What a mind blowing thought, God manifests this savour of his knowledge "by us." And not only "by us," but he does this "in every place."

We have victory because of Christ. On our side what gives us victory? Love is one. When you love, you don't want anything to break that bond. Truth is another, but love is what bonds it. You don't want to go against truth - because you love the truth, and because you love The Truth. You love the One who is Truth. Another is wisdom, you know anything against truth is death. You don't want death, you want to abide in life. Another is service, you don't want to not be the "by us" "in every place." That's love also, because you love God's service. Another is knowledge, you don't want to be joined to the power of the enemy, and lose the only power you have against it - power in Christ.

After Jesus rose from the dead, he spoke to Simon Peter. He said to him, "Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these?" (John 21:15)

Jesus said, "...son of Jonas..." We have no power to be victorious apart from Jesus Christ. Our fleshly nature, the son of man nature, the son of Jonas nature, the old man, the old nature, the nature we inherit from our parents, cannot give us victory; only by the Spirit of Christ can we be victorious.

"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place."
