    2 Corinthians 10:7 Commentary

    Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? Many JUDGED Paul by the meanness of his person, the weakness of his body, the lowness of his voice, his outward circumstances of life, his poverty, afflictions, and persecutions; and despised him; whilst they looked upon the riches, eloquence, haughty airs, noisiness, and personable airs of the FALSE APOSTLES, and admired them.

    IF a man trusts that he is Christ's: is fully assured that he has an interest in Jesus's love and favour, is redeemed by his blood, is a partaker of his grace, and a believer in him; that he is a minister of the Gospel, and an disciple of Christ, one that is qualified and sent forth by Jesus to preach the word.

    Who don't go about to disprove others of being Christ's or not (by judging).

    My comment: Anyone that is born again through Christ Jesus the Lord, and has received the Holy Spirits Baptism: is going to be SCRUTINIZED by most everybody. Especially if the Holy Spirit has anointed you to ministry. So remember that your GIFT will make room for you. It's useful to have a good relationship with your Church's leadership.

    Satan doesn't want us to do what Jesus is calling us to. Being on leaderships prayer list is a good thing.

    We submit ourselves to Jesus's leadership and Follow Him. My baby Christian-hood was spent within Church leadership for a season. I was involved evangelistically with other street preachers. We all had jobs too.

    Apostle Paul was traveling with other followers of Jesus. But he was singled out (with Satan's help) to be hated for appearance, message, volume , knowledge of Jewish, Roman, and other learning. Don't take it personally. "THEY" are responsible for their own deeds.

    You do what Jesus said to do. He will catch "all the rocks" that people aim at you. You're Gods kid__that's all you need to know. Read Ezekiel slowly. We got it good.

    Please read further 2Corinthians 10:7-18,

    1st he's going back at words spoken about him vrs 10, & 11,

    2nd he notes "even so are we Christ's" = also belonging too, also, James 2,

    But we are to Judge ourselves, John 7:24, 1Corinthians 11:31, 1Peter 3,

    James 1:5,

    Hopefully these are helpful
  • Elsa C Deem on 2 Corinthians 10
    I don't really understand what 2 Corinthians 10.7 means. I am concerned about whether I am fooling myself or not really resigning myself to God as I really want to. Can you help me make this meaning clearer in my mind?
  • Bob - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 10
    Amen & Halleluiah again Free my friend!!!

    I feel it in my bones "...where sin abounds, grace much more abounds..."; Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Tsikeneu [hope i spelled them right]; all names have meanings, espscially the names of our God! Deut.6:4

    Shalom/Maranatha & kol tuv etc .... [never could have imagined today's happennings in my life time! "... the beginning of sorrows ..."]
  • Bob - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 10
    Todah (i.e. thank u) Mishael!!

    Amen & AMEN again (God does 'still' inhabit the praises of 'His' people)

    Kol tuv (be well) etc ....
  • Mishael - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 10
    I thank the Lord for your zeal. Don't lose that. You are absolutely correct. The Praise Warriors went first. God inhabits the praise of his children, His mighty men & women.
  • ***continued from previous post;

    Who can tell who might say as many did on THE DAY OF PENTECOST/SHAVOUT In the 2nd chapter of the Book Of Acts "...what must we do to be saved?" Amen? AMEN!!!

    BTW, remember sodom & gomorrah, & "the days of Noah"

    again MARANATHA! & kol tuv (be well) etc .... in Jesus' Name!
  • u know folks, while listenning to 'uplifting' gospel music ["I feel your spirit" sung by Polish young people & "flash mob" videos ] i felt led to share some thoughts/scriptures with you concernig today's present world situation [i.e. spiritual warfare]. Paul here in this chapter vs.4-5 reminds us what our warfare & weapons are all about, especially if/when sin is in the/our camp, thru out the Bible (KJV) revival & victory is won/guaranteed when we put WORSHIPPERS IN FRONT/AHEAD OF EVERYTHING ELSE (did we forget again?), beginning with a return to the Word Of God! Remember Jericho? The Day Of Pentecost, Hezekiah's revival etc?

    The scripture in Isaiah 58:1 says show *'My People' their transgressions & *'The House Of Jacob' their sins! A clear distinction of the two ("why call me LORD, LORD ....). Can you imagine what would/could happen if we put Judah (Praise/spiritual weapons) in front/before PEACEFUL patriotic truckers assemblies world wide, especially in CANADA & AMERICA? What could the people satan is using do "IN SUCH A TIME AS THIS" (REMEMBER QUEEN ESTHER)

    "NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST US CAN/WILL PROSPER" Isaiah 54:17, no matter who seems to be in power! Stop following the enemies [followers of the devil (evil one)] naratives/talking points and do as little David did against his giant foe, Goliath! He used what worked for him, 'his weapon' (sling shot) and we all should know what followed!

    So be encouraged to fight these situations with OUR WEAPONS WHICH ARE SPIRITUAL, and watch what happens, Game Over! "If my people who are called by My Name, would humble themselves & pray...."

    "Doers & not hearers" of God's Word(s)! Amen? AMEN!!! Patriots everywhere need our support [try worship music at your events when possible; it will also attract & encourage our young people & others]

    I'm your brother in Yeshua Hammachiah/Christ Jesus our Lord & Saviour; I am also a whosoever of whosoevers according to John 3:16.

    God Bless & Stay Safe, i.e. kol tuv etc!

    Romans 1:21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

    22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

    23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    2things about water baptism to consider.

    #1 is WHO was present (in Spirit) at the baptism of Jesus Christ himself? Answer; God the Father, Jesus himself, and the Holy Spirit that descended upon Jesus, like a dove!(Father, Son, Holy Spirit, right?)

    #2 Why did Jesus Christ himself say in Matthew 28:19 to "go ye therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the FATHER and of the SON and of the HOLY GHOST, teaching them to observe all things what so ever I HAVE commanded you and low I am With you always even until the end of the world amen".

    Jesus said this after He resurrected before He ascended to THE FATHER.

    Please make sure that you study the whole Bible YOURSELF, PRAYERFULLY. And if something doesn't sit right in your spirit then keep praying about it keep studying. Be careful not to cherry pick scriptures from the Bible but take the entire Bible as a whole when seeking your answers.

    Lord be with you and your search.

    God is faithful and true and he will not let you be deceived if you seek Him with all your heart

  • What does the bible say about same sex relationships and homosexuality? Someone made a comment that king James was a homosexual. I don't think I believe that.

    Also how many scriptures say to be Baptized In Jesus' Name? Water Baptism.

    Thank you and I appreciate your help.

    Religious people repeate Letters absent of the fruit of the Spirit" resulting in dead works.The letter killeth but the Spirit Revives. Speaking flattering ego ceceptive words only serves to bolster the ego of wolves in sheep's clothing. Each true servent of God ,are targeted firstly be crafty servents of Satan who seduce people with smooth tounges and fine garments Cars Houses in Gated Communities. TV Broadcast , and lower level preachers who feed off the poor they hold captive. Perverting the Ture Gospel of Christ. leading hungry sould further away from the love of God they already have. I take theposition of I'd rather be a usher at God house then dine at the head Table of the Opresser of Gods People. Over years and years of listening to blind leaders and moving on I learned to seek the Truth directly from God ,and to ask God to teach me the truth in a understnding that is aplliable in transforming and renweing the old flesh materialisitc attachments, lettig go of old things so fresh new awareness can be realized. We should be equiped with he Words of God that is powerful to stamp out satanatic networks that stalk our children at School and attacking family memebrs or any who have aligned with Eveil doers ,Calling the police and going to Court is not guranteed, But deliberate precise spirit directed uttterence of God Words is 100% guranteed against any and all Weapons aimed at us , Reading and not beleving is muggling the OX. Leaning to the Flesh blocks us off from Divine activation. It is my prayer that Gods Children will go directly to hime as Jesus told us to ,Asking anything in his name and the father is guranteed to do it for us. Detach from all doubters near who the enemy uses to dump cold water on your fire for God. Psalms 38-20.68-68-21-109-3. Jeremiah1-19- Psalms 27-3- Isiah29-5. are Weapons of God more powerful than any weapons developed my the minds of Warmongers. who abuse the weak .
  • John Emeter on 2 Corinthians 10:6
    1 Pet.4:17 says that judgment shall begin from the house of God. If we are waiting for God's judgment against the disobedience of the world, then our own obedience must be complete. God is not partial, and because He loves us, He will always wait for us to be perfected in obedience before unleashing His wrath against the children of disobedience, in judgment. So, why we are not yet seeing the wicked punished, or why we are not yet avenged against our persecutors, is simply because we are still leaving in disobedience. We are the ones holding back the hand of God's judgment.
  • Marquisha T Jerry on 2 Corinthians 10:5
    Amen to this word of God, and to you'll comments which gives me a better understanding of what the scripture is saying, praise God.

    Paul's methodology ( 2 Corinthians 10:2-6)

    1. What Paul does not do ( 2 Cor. 10:2-3): He does not depend upon the tactics of this world.

    2. What Paul does ( 2 Cor. 10:4-6): He uses God's mighty weapons to knockdown Satan's strongholds.

    Get any of those varieties of physical exercise or simply far better, mix these people all the way up.
  • WESLEY J BARNARD - in Reply on 2 Corinthians 10
    *strongholds-G3794-ochyro'ma=a castle; a fortress; arguments and beliefs used to defend against an opponent; per Strongs.

    Paul here reminds the 'saints' that they are not ignorant of Satan's devices; that Satan concentrates on deceiving the mind, the thinking of his victims. Did he not 'change' the minds of Adam and Eve?

    So, those who are not aware of Satan's 'devices', his plans, his strategies, are all focused on your mind. This awareness also helps us know how they think, how they plan and what they plan.

    *casting down-G2507-kathaireo'=to take down; to destroy; to pull down; to demolish; to refute.

    Bringing into captivity every thought to submit to the mind of Christ is the aim here. Yes, submitting to Christ's word, his truth; these are the 'weapons' we use to cast down or pull down all human reasoning. We must first begin in our own mind to pull down all human reasoning. Only then can we be prepared to 'pull down every thought' that is in opposition to the Christ. This one part of the spiritual war we must wage with Satan and his 'seed' Esau, the Edomite Jew.

    Please review the 'spiritual truth' of the word 'Strong Holds' and what it means on the Current Events page (two entries) of a world deceived.ca

    The Current Events page is a collection of thoughts and discussions on todays current events and how it helps explain and examine them and put them into spiritual context.
  • We must be obedient unto Christ. Our warfare is spiritual and Jesus fights our battles for us. Bring into captivity all thoughts and obedience unto Christ. God pulls down the strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against Him. All glory goes to God the Father, Creator of the universe.

    Lord how's name is love let every word of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in they sight O God my strength and my redeemer,
  • Ryan Stone on 2 Corinthians 10
    Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: 2 But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. Good set of verses
  • Verse 15~Paul was confident that as the faith of others continued to grow, there would be an increase.
  • Peter A. Okebukola on 2 Corinthians 10
    Eternal truths- For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.
  • Bennett Okafor on 2 Corinthians 10
    Jesus said behold I have given you power and authority over EVERY POWER Of the enemy. We have power authority and dominion over our thoughts and every suggestions of the devil. Greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world. As he is so are we in this world
  • A disciple on 2 Corinthians 10
    Ray; We are born of the Water, clean through His Word, born from above of the Spirit, new creations in Christ! We are not full grown when we're born; but must grow in His grace and knowledge, by WORKING OUT OUR SALVATION through proving by fire! It is a chance to transform our very nature and character; but it is a FIGHT AGAINST all that has been our nature and character up until we were saved.
  • Verse 5: We must bring any negative or wrong thought into captivity and to make them obedient to the Christ. We need to find ways to combat negative thinking by applying encouraging Scriptures.
  • Ray321 on 2 Corinthians 10
    Paul is always writing to saved believers, mostly Gentiles. Peter wrote to Jewish believers in his epistles. John wrote to Jewish believers in his epistles. Every book in the Bible was written for a reason, but it all end up at the cross of Jesus Christ. The Bible, before the cross and after the cross, finally we have Salvation thru Jesus Christ our Lord by his finished works. Amen
