  • Comments by Alex on how we know that Jesus is truly God the Son . We know that Jesus is truly God the Son by his WORDS which are the very seeds of God .Jesus was reproducing GODS spirit the H.G. by his seed ,his WORDS when he breath on them, His breath was his word and his WORDS are his seeds as he says the GOOD SEEDS ARE THE Words of God and he that soweth the GOOD SEED is the SON OF MAN so Jesus is able to propagate very God ( the H.G. ) with his seed as he said to whom the WORD came it made them Gods thus Jesus is truly God the son simply b/c he can reproduce very God with his seed ,I.E. He reproduces after the God kind, he says that which is born of the spirit is spirit. Thats the H.G. his OFFSPRING ,THE GRANSON , That Child of PROMISE that is gonna be born in US via his precious Seed th living WORD. Not the written word but the living Word ,Being bornagain of an incorruptible seed even by the word of God that LIVETH and abideth FOREVER ( The LIVING WORD WHICH IS A LIVING BEING A BABY CHRIST ) Even in the natural, a birth implies a CHILD When they argued which was the greatest Jesus took a Child and set him in their midst meaning they needed to BIRTH a baby Christ in their lives which is the H.G. That Child of Promise . As a lil CHILD is gonna lead US. Its the H.G. our new born babe ,our new innerman that is the greatest in the EYES of GOD. As we have borne the image of the earthy we must also bear ( birth ) the image of the heavenly . The new BIRTH IMPLIES A HEAVENLY CHILD . We are not born from above till we birth that heavenly Child in our hearts. Remember the Woman is giving birth in Revelation 12 ,she was impregnated by the WORDS of our lord the contents of the book in the hand of the FATHER that is soon to be opened that contains the words of life the seeds of the SOWER the new covenant . The Woman is th best example of FAITH being bornagain of an incorruptible seed, She had the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen HER CHILD IS THE H.G..
  • In chapter ten of first Corinthians the references that Paul made about the cloud, what does the cloud signify ?
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 10
    Paul was referring back to the old days when the children of Israel had left the bondage that they were in at Egypt, and were being led of God from Egypt towards the Promised Land, Canaan. God ministered to them in many ways, including supplying food & water as well. However, God used a (very large) cloud to guide Moses & the people by day & a pillar of fire by night: Exodus 13:21,22.

    And when Israel stopped to rest & set up camp, that cloud from God went behind them & near the pursuing Egyptians, so that Israel had light, while this great cloud covered the sun & gave darkness to the pursuing Egyptians, so that they too had to stop since they couldn't see where they were going: Exodus 14:19,20. In this way, God maintained a separation between Israel & her enemies, thus keeping her safe.

    So the point that Paul was making here, was that how wonderfully God had taken care of His people during those difficult days (40 years) of trekking through the desert because of their murmuring & disobedience to God, so the Corinthians also should use that event as an example for their own lives. God had dealt severely with Israel for their sins & so we too should be careful in our Christian walk & live carefully before God, lest He discipline us according to our waywardness & sins. The Corinthian Christians were living amongst an idolatrous people & were being tempted to live by their standards (even as it is today with us), but Paul's warning to them was to beware of living like this & learn from the serious example that the Israelites in their wanderings, had set for them.

    Thank-you, Chris

    1 Corinthians 10

    For the clarification regarding the cloud of God guiding the Israelites into the promise land by day, and bringing fire by night. To show his people his greatness and his everlasting Love and Protection.

    God Bless you and Merry Christmas

    Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:24

    His own only, but another's welfare also.

    People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:24

    Let no man seek his own. In asserting rights; consider the interests of others first.

    Timothy Wayne George Comment: on 1 Corinthians 10:24 10 yrs ago

    Let no man seek his own good but the good of his neighbor We should do all we can to make our neighbor wealthy by imparting some wisdom in life that will help him to get ahead The Lord will always bless you when you put the needs of your neighbor ahead of your own That is what the Lord requires of us to do justly love mercy and walk humbly before the Lord When we do this the Lord will reward us with many blessings more than we can hold.

  • Jesus Existed Before He was born the Som of Man on 1 Corinthians 10
    I found other scriptures. The scripture 1 John 5:7 should be enough. Jesus name before Bethlehem is the WORD.

    Hebrews 7:3, speaking of Melchizedek, says: "but made Like unto the Son of God.."

    John 1:1-5, 14 clearly shows that Jesus, the Word; was in the beginning with God.

    Ephesians 1:4, 9-10

    Proverbs 8:22-31

    Psalms 33:6, Psalms 2:7

    Colossians 1:16-19

    Colossians 2:9

    Corinthians 8:6

    Note: the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed, declared Jesus Begotten: NOT made.

    The sabboth is Saturday. The Jews still worship on this day. Jesus rose on the first day of the week. ( the Lords day.) Sunday. This is why Christians worship on this day.
  • Pam Carlton on 1 Corinthians 10:13
    God didn't promise us that life in Him would be exempt from trials and temptation. But, what He says is that he'll provide a way of escape. Therefore, we win because he has provided a way out.

    Could not GOD have forgiven us of our sins without JESUS CHRIST being made human and dying?
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 10:14
    Yes, God could have still forgiven us without sending His Son to die for us, but then God wouldn't have been the God that we know from the Bible. Why is that?

    You know the various attributes of God: He is Holy, Merciful, Gracious, Long suffering, Just, to name a few. Because He is a Just God & requires obedience, any breaking of His Laws, however small, requires a penalty. Just like when we over speed on the road & get pulled over. We can give all the excuses to the officer, but he has to still issue a ticket & we have to pay the fine according to the laws' requirements. God cannot give man a law & then overlook any breaking of it - if so, He wouldn't be a Just Judge. So if we break God's Law, we have to suffer a penalty. And because God is Holy & Just, He can & should expect our total obedience. But can we be totally obedient?

    But the Bible tells us that "all have sinned & fallen short of God's Glory (or, we haven't met God's requirements): Romans 3:23. And we know this for a fact - not one of us is without sin. So, the payment of sin is death: Romans 6:23a "For the wages of sin is death". We rightly deserve His punishment of death = eternal separation from God because we have wronged God & despised Him. So in reality, when we die we should all go to Hell, to our deserved punishment for violating God's Holy demands.

    But God's Love for us constrained Him not to do this, but how could we pay for sin's penalty? All religions teach that we must try hard to do good & please God by our lives to escape His Judgement - but that doesn't work because we still sin & so how can something dirty (a sinner) make itself clean (sinless)? You need something pure to satisfy God's demands & we have nothing to offer.

    Jesus steps in: "I will give my life to take UPON ME the penalty of man's sins" John 10:15, Galatians 3:13. So Jesus, the Pure, Holy One of God, willingly became our substitute to give up His Life so we don't have to lose ours to the Devil: but only if we put our trust in Him.
  • Richard on 1 Corinthians 10
    It reads in verse 13 we will be provided a way out of temptation, what happens if we succumb to that temptation, can we still find forgiveness?
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 10
    Richard, that passage you referred to talks about Testings that come to believers - and not to sin directly. As you can see, verses 1 -22 deals with testings: Israel tested God's love & goodness towards them by following idols & received God's Judgement (v 8). And Paul gave the warning to his readers (v 9) to not test Christ in similar fashion. Obviously, Israel & Christians do test the Lord, they sin & they are admonished or judged but verse 13 speaks about, not how we test the Lord, but of testings that come to us to compel us to sin or turn away from the Lord. So, it could be through some extreme trial (physical/emotional suffering, loss of a loved one, loss of job, insecurity, persecution, etc.) that comes to us. The Lord allows us to go through it, but verse 13 says, that through that testing, God gives us a way out of it so that you don't succumb & sin.

    Therefore, I see this verse 13 as an extra instruction to the aspect of our sinning & recovery: we are tempted to sin & if we give in, we sin. But this verse tells us that in the midst of that temptation, God provides us a way out of it so that we don't succumb & sin. And that way out, is the spiritual strength He gives us, the Holy Spirit revealing to us what we must do, or Him even going ahead of us to sort out the problem matter so that we don't sin as a result. But, if we do succumb, then there is still place for forgiveness but may come at a high price & this experience will be for our learning & maturing in Christ.

  • Don't assume Paul is saying sin is justified.

    For even the Head Apostle, Peter, said Paul's writings are hard to be understood, as other scriptures, 2 Peter 3:16.

    Adultery is adultery, fornication is fornication, lasciviousness is lasciviousness.

    To commit adultery saying we do it unto Christ is saying, God is confusion.

    But God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, 1 Corinthians 14:33.

    Can sin bring peace?

    Blessed is the man that endureth temptation, James 1:12

    Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

    Do not err, my beloved brethren, James 1:15-16
  • Philippians 2:5 it is nothing for Jesus to put others interests before his own! We should follow his example is what Paul is exorting. If i am with my jewish friend, i say the baruch before meals with her in Hebrew! that we may win some...
  • No matter what we do in our lives daily we need to make sure that we are glorifying Jehovah God by our speech and conduct.

  • Daughter of a King on 1 Corinthians 10
    Communion is more than a monthly ritual, it is recognized in the sight of God as the partaking of Christ's body, his church. Paul warned that communion was not an occasion to eat and drink to satisfy a fleshly hunger. When we take it unworthily (not ordering our lives after his word) we can face his wrath. Communion is sacred and should be done the way Christ instructed. In memory of him!
  • Tom Nichols on 1 Corinthians 10
    Merry Christmas my friend!
  • Thank God for the choice of verse. Struggling believers exposed to the world get help here. Invisible spirits abound to intice yet greater is God in our midst. Christians are hurt with pride and temptation yet our Lord shows his sheep the safe way. Remain in his vine, when lust arises go to his Word, these verses, so powerful to protect us. May Christ ring true with His power this season, Amen.
  • Charles Northup on 1 Corinthians 10
    We must remember it all was written by God and has to agree as one writing? The Father and The Word and The Holy Ghost and these 3 are one.
  • Verse 12: We want to guard against overconfidence and put up a constant fight to stay on the right course.
  • Wayne on 1 Corinthians 10
    Romans 8:23, Christians are not to walk after the flesh but are to mortify the deeds of the body by the Spirit. Christ came to give us power over the flesh and all sin. If one is a Christian, one must take all sinful things to Jesus to b eradicated. Christ can remove all sin, 1 John 1st chapter. "And cleanse us from all unrighteousness". "Cleanses us from ALL sin". 2nd chap Walk as He walked.
  • Peter A. Okebukola on 1 Corinthians 10
    Eternal truths: Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
