People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 14:36


1Co 14:36 What? came the word of God out from you? A rebuke. The Corinthian church must receive instruction, not give it. It did not send out the word of God, but the word of God was sent to 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"

    well if God used a donkey He will use anyone!!! If more Men would be the leaders that God called them to be then maybe there wouldnt be women preaching but where are all the Men of God!!! Praise God for the Women that are doing the work!!! Where are all the men 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.
