Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 14:32


14:32 For the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets - But what enthusiast considers this? The impulses of the Holy Spirit, even in men really inspired, so suit themselves to their rational faculties, as not to divest them of the government of themselves, like the heathen priests under their diabolical possession. Evil spirits threw their prophets into such ungovernable ecstasies, as forced them to speak and act like madmen. But the Spirit of God left his prophets the clear use of their judgment, when, and how long, it was fit for them to speak, and never hurried them into any improprieties either as to the matter, manner, or time of their speaking.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 14:32


1Co 14:32 The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. A prophet can wait his turn in silence; he is not compelled to speak at once, for his spirit is subject to him. He can be silent if he wills it.

    God created the heaven and earth, he knows all things before the foundation was ever laid. Many are call and few are chosen. My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will allow his will to be done through whomever he choose. It is Godbusiness. Remember the "Wisdom of man is the foolishness of God"

    SPEAKING IN TONGUES = CHRIST IN YOU = PROOF POSSITIVE OF THE POWER AND PRESENCE OF THE INDWELLING GIFTS OF THE 9 MANIFESTATIONS OF THE HOLY GHOST = BORN OF THE INCORRUPTABLE SEED MADE OF THE TRUE AND GENUINE TEMPLE MADE WITHOUT HANDS = OH YES WE CAN FOR HIS EVERLASTING GLORY IN THESE LATTER DAYS IN THIS KINGDOM OF GOD AMEN ! RESTORATION FROM ACTS THROUGH JUDE RIGHTLY DIVIDED AMEN ! SHALOM SAINTS !

    "Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaks a barbarian, and he that speaks shall be a barbarian unto me." The Lord gave four examples of the kinds of hearts men have with respect to hearing and receiving His Word. The examples all came out of the individuals' own making of what kind they would be; for God's will is clearly for ALL of them to have been saved.

    Wayne; God commanded the woman to be under obedience and subjection to her husband in Genesis 3:15 directly after pronouncing to the serpent his eternal condemnation and the breaking of his head by the coming of Christ. The Western Churches are in disobedience to this Word because of rebellious worldly influences and thinking they're above such things, thus opening the door to more and more evil.
