Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:9

People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:9

1Co 2:9 As it is written. See Isa 54:4. There was no human conception, as shown by the prophet, of the glory to be revealed in the mystery of the gospel. And indeed that glory is still beyond the power of mere human conception.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 2

  • Yabe Bezabeh on 1 Corinthians 2:9
    When all other verses fed away for a while from memories, when I am severely in pain and hurt and life seems so unfair and bitter and unfairness takes place and my emotion and accusations takes over and the devil thinks he has won, and I feel as I have failed somehow and hopelessNess comes and there is nothing can be done about the situation, I still cling to my LORD whatever the case. I tell the devil that if God is with me who on earth can be against me? I remind him that He is obviously a loser and that I have the ALMIGHTY God in me who is so much greater and that I am not supposed to trust humans but just love them while I just TRUST my LORD to the end for He is the one who is able to get me to the place where eyes has not seen not ears have not heard.........

    Amen forever

    That indeed is a true declaration of the Spirit's Work in your life, your understanding of the Scriptures & your dealing with the enemy of our souls. The Power & Authority of God's Word will always cause the enemy to flee. The calling upon the Lord, engages all of Heaven's resources for your benefit, resulting in a joyous victory. Yabe, may you continue to rejoice, keeping your eyes affixed upon the "Author & Finisher of your faith".

  • Demetrius on 1 Corinthians 2:9
    There is no doubt the promises attached to this verse can 't be compared money or any material gain. Ignorance has a way of keeping you around your destiny but the Holy Spirit has a way of revealing it to you.
  • MockingBird on 1 Corinthians 2:9
    We have now the earnest of the Spirit : That is a down payment with payment in full to come at His return : From time to time Spirit of God is so manifestly wide open at times I believe that I am already in heaven with my Lord : If I see the down payment as so unspeakable and full of Glory : no wonder we need a glorified body to be IN the very presence of God for eternity : Oh !! Glory what a time such as this :

    This scriptural verse is indeed the greatest promise of love by our lovely father, it is our hope, strength, courage and assurance that at the END there is an unimmaginable, unthinkable and a precious price awaiting us both in heaven and on earth. Amen.
