Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 5:7


5:7 For we cannot clearly see him in this life, wherein we walk by faith only: an evidence, indeed, that necessarily implies a kind of seeing him who is invisible; yet as far beneath what we shall have in eternity, as it is above that of bare, unassisted reason.

    Comment*When we walk in the spirit as he is spirit his nature is made manifest in us because we were regenerated from being in the hm by his precious child and the old nature was taken away that is we have to crucify five things daily on the cross,
    the world,
    the devil,
    sins and transpases,
    flesh and
    law
    God will nt do for us we to do it ourselves in jesus name

    Eternal truths: For we walk by faith, not by sight. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin

    I think that 2 Corinthians is telling us that we need to work for God all the time and to work as we are working for Him on our jobs and at home. And that we will be Judge for what we do and what we don't do.

    Daniel 5:16 And I have heard of thee, that thou canst make interpretations, and dissolve doubts: now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.

    I just want to say we all need our faith increse and i thank God for being God and to know we have him to look to from an evil wicked world things will end but his love will never and we have to belive that we didnt creat our self and really dont understand ourselves so we know to turn to our God our creator and thats enough
