1Co 16:1 Concluding Words SUMMARY OF I CORINTHIANS 16: The Collections for the Saints. The First Day of the Week. His Work at Ephesus. Timothy Commended to Them. Various Friendly Admonitions. Closing Salutations. Now concerning the collection for the saints. The collection for the poor saints at Jerusalem is referred to more than once in Acts. It was first called for when "a great dearth" came upon the land (Ac 11:28-30). The church at Jerusalem had been impoverished by the great liberality in its first years, and by the persecutions which followed. See also Ac 24:17. References to this collection are found in Ro 15:26 2Co 8:1,2 9:1,2. To the churches of Galatia. The directions to the churches of Galatia on this subject have not been preserved. Such hints as this and the reference to a lost letter to the church of Corinth (1Co 5:9), show that all that Paul wrote has not come down to us.

    "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong." Proverbs 20:13 "Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread." How were the Israelites fed in the wilderness forty years? Yet with all the miracles and hearing God's voice from heaven, all they could say about the Bread from heaven, "What is it?" Wake up, and KEEP AWAKE!

    The Lord Jesus Christ knows what 'amen' means - Thank-you, Bruce.
  • Bruce
    You may hear Amen from some, in the church. You would hear this more often a few years back. In Hebrew or Greek it means the same thing. We can pray in his will or ask his will be done. Amen does not mean Thy will be done. The meaning is: so be it, truly, truth. God said it, I believe it. Amen! Let's just stay in the B-I-B-L-E, Amen
