Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 6:2


6:2 For he saith - The sense is, As of old there was a particular time wherein God was pleased to pour out his peculiar blessing, so there is now. And this is the particular time: this is a time of peculiar blessing. #Isaiah 49:8|.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 6:2


2Co 6:2 For he saith. See Isa 44:8. In the day of salvation have I succored thee. The prophecy is an offer of salvation to the Gentiles, to whom the Corinthians belonged. The point is that God has offered the salvation, but that "now [is] the accepted time", and it is not safe to neglect it.

Yes we can Rejoice

    V.10 - As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; - I've had 2 recent experiences with this - as I know many of you have. About 2 1/2 mos. ago my 46 yr. old son had a heart attack, his heart stopped, they got it going again; he's fine now. Then this past Dec. 13 I came down with flu/pneumonia for 2 wks. Mighty prayer was sent up for us both of us by the ch. I'm fine, but thru it all I could REJOICE!!

    Christina: the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband. 1Corinthians 7:10-16 Both will not go to heaven only those who are born again. Unevenly yoked will be hard. A believer should never marry an unbeliever! Have you been called John6:44,forgiving 1John1:9,you will be:Matthew3:11. You will know, impossible not to know 2Corinthians 5:17
  • Christina
    Being unequally yoked can defile the believer,as well as the believer never inherit God's Kingdom
  • Moses
    i cannot be a believer and love the world nor the things in it; Jesus warned me about idolatry and i cannot be a sin free true christian and buddy around with a disobedient one-my love will go cold.Compromise has sent many OF US TO HELLFIRE-if Jesus loved me with all his heart i also ought to love Him with all mine and i hate failing in this-pray for me for sacrificing for Jesus sometimes not easy.

    This world is not our home so why get comfortable here. We do not belong here if we are Christians. It is like visiting. It is not our home and we dont belong so we dont make ourself too comfortable.
