Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 6:7


6:7 By the convincing and converting power of God - Accompanying his word; and also attesting it by divers miracles. By the armour of righteousness on the right hand and the left - That is, on all sides; the panoply or whole armour of God.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 6:7


2Co 6:7 By the word of truth. By preaching the gospel with power. By the power of God. Shown in his great activity and unparalleled success (2Co 4:7). By the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left. See Eph 6:11. On the left hand was the shield; on the right, the sword. Protected by "the shield of faith" (Eph 6:16), Paul used "the sword of the Spirit" (Eph 6:17).

    Verse 2 is quoting Isaiah 49:8. Now is the especially acceptable time. We don't want to miss the purpose of God's undeserved kindness.

    Jim: Yes, Unevenly Yoked in anything: But its mostly used for Marriage. Most believe They Will draw the other to Christ,But---? One Looks to The Light the other to Darkness. We can help the Lost. I will help anyone with almost anything,the Price: Hearing The Way of Salvation. I sometimes take them Fishing or invite for Supper. Sometimes One will go to Church.

    Being unequally yoked with unbelievers is correct, but it means not to run with them not to restrain from witnessing to them.

    Ask God for a Christian young lady or young man to marry. God knows what you need and where they are. And ask the Holy Ghost to bring your hearts together in His love. I did and been married, to same Christian woman, 52 years. God Bless.

    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!!
