People's Bible Notes for 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.

    God is wonderful indeed, i still cant tell why He loves us this much... no words can explain what awaits us home
  • This is only for a select group of people not the Sunday church goers or those who sit on a deacon board or play in the church choir and think that is salvation It s not for the fearful or the faithless or the liars or backbiters etc But this is for those who have died out to the world and surrendered all to God Those who call on the name of Jesus day and night The ones baptized by the Holy Ghost and the fire These are they who when they are tried and endure are found worthy to receive God s glory in their lives It pays to love God It pays to fear Him and to trust in His Word The Word of God is Jesus We can not even begin to comprehend what revelations and songs and prophecies and visions and wonderful works God has in store for those who love Him And who does Jesus says loves Him Those who keep His commandments Amen
  • MockingBird on 1 Corinthians 2:9
    Mine eye has not seen nor my ears have heard the things that my Lord has in store for me I have tasted a small portion in receiving His salvation in His Son my Lord and Saviour Awesome that The Almighty God of all Loves me enough to send His Son to live and die for me My future is in heaven But I can only comprehend a small portion that is reserved for me I amm looking for the coming of my Lord soon Praise God
