Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 12:9


12:9 Faith may here mean an extraordinary trust in God under the most difficult or dangerous circumstances. The gift of healing need not be wholly confined to the healing diseases with a word or a touch. It may exert itself also, though in a lower degree, where natural remedies are applied; and it may often be this, not superior skill, which makes some physicians more successful than others. And thus it may be with regard to other gifts likewise. As, after the golden shields were lost, the king of Judah put brazen in their place, so, after the pure gifts were lost, the power of God exerts itself in a more covert manner, under human studies and helps; and that the more plentifully, according as there is the more room given for it.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 12:9


1Co 12:9 To another faith by the same Spirit. Not that faith which "comes by hearing" (Ro 10:17), but that faith which carried miraculous power. See 1Co 13:2 Mt 17:20.

    Stephen, speaking in diverse languages and interpretation of diverse languages is listed last. Also, matt. 6:33 states but seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. Being in the kingdom and His righteousness, the Lord will supply all our needs.

    V. 1 - "..... and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost." What this is referring to is - Jesus is the 'Lord' of ones life, after Acts 2:38. It's THEN He becomes the Lord of one's life, and one can say, "I KNOW the Lord." Jn. 15:14. Matt. 28:19 is a commandment of Jesus: in the NAME of ....."

    What people do not know that the Holy Ghost and Holy Spirit is the same, when a person gets saved, he receives the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit, the Bible say in Romans 8:9 Now if a man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His, he abides when you for ever, the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit is part of the trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit.
