Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But to them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person. I Cor. 5:12,13

    Paul has pointed out that Christians must judge Christians and God will judge the wicked. So it behooves believers to put away the wicked person from among them. Rebuke a believer who is living in sin and if he or she repents accept them, but if they do not then turn them over to Satan for the destruction of the body so that the soul can be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus Christ. God will judge the wicked at the Great White Throne judgment and we will be allowed to testify to the judgment that we witnessed to them about their sin. Therefore judge yourselves so that ye will not be judged. Let the unrighteous man forsake his thoughts and the wicked man his ways and return to the Lord for he will abundantly pardon.

  • #I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of being this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolators; for then must ye needs to go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such a one no not to eat. I Cor. 5:9-11

    Paul has given the standard for Christian conduct and what must not be named among Christians in order to go to Heaven. We find in today that Christians are not as serious about what Paul admonished in this epistle, and it is more commonly reported of Christians to be fornicators. I know it is not the unpardonable sin, but must be repented of at once. Let every man or woman have their own spouse. This is the only way the Christian community is going to overcome the gossip and lies that is permeating the Church today. Drinking is more socially acceptable than ever before and not associating with drunkards is hardly ever standard. We must be at peace with all men and follow holiness, for without holiness no man will see the Lord.

  • #Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out, therefore, the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. I Cor. 5:6-8

    Does Paul use the analogy of leaven being a little leaveneth the whole lump? This is why we must keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Therefore put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provisions for the flesh.

  • #For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, To deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. I Cor. 5:3-5

    Paul is concerned that the Corinthian church turns this man over to Satan for fornicating with his father's wife. For the destruction of the body in hopes that his soul can be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. We must judge ourselves so that we may not be judged.

  • #It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you and such fornication as is not so much named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. And ye are puffed up and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. I Cor. 5:1-2

    Incest is fornication rather it is a stepmother or real mother and the Corinthian Church failed to judge this brother for this sin. What a shame to see that this sin is still prevalent in society today. May the Lord give pastors the courage to rebuke anyone that is living in sin today. There is so much prosperity preaching going on, and pastors are more concerned about not offending members. We must all stand before the judgment seat of Christ and answer for those things done in the body, be they good or bad.

  • #Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you. But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power. For the kingdom of God is not in word, but power. What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love and in the spirit of meekness? I Cor. 4:18-21

    There are some who are full of pride, as Paul warned the Corinthians, that he would come in power if the Lord wills. For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power. Then he challenges them shall I come to you with a rod or in love and in the spirit of meekness? Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit goes before a fall. Meekness is the key and love is better to use than a rod of strength. 

  • #Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me. For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church. I Cor. 4:16,17 

    Paul exhorts the Corinthians to be followers of him as he follows Christ and that he would send Timothy, the Greek name Timotheus to them who would bring them into remembrance of my ways in Christ Jesus. When you win someone to Christ you then become a spiritual father, as Paul had become the spiritual father of Timothy.

  • #I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons, I warn you. For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. I Cor. 4:14,15

    Paul is responsible for many sons, as he has won them to Christ by the preaching of the gospel and he has warned them as a loving father warns his children of present dangers. We must not get puffed up preaching the gospel, as we must remain humble servants of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • #We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honorable, but we are despised. Even unto this present hour we both hunger and thirst and are naked and are buffeted and have no certain dwelling place; and labor, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. I Cor. 4:10-13

    As Christians, we are fools for Christ's sake to this world for the glory of God. We are weak, while others are honorable. We are despised while others are strong. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: being defamed, we intreat: we are made as to the filth of the world and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. We praise God for the chance to suffer for Christ's sake and glorify the Lord in our bodies even though we are pilgrims and strangers in this present world.

  • #And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you is, puffed up for one against another. For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it? Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. I Cor.4:6-8

    It is important to us not to think of men more than we ought to. For it is God who makes us differ from another. Now we are rich in Christ Jesus and are seated with Him in heavenly places. We can reign as kings by the power of God for He has given us all things that we have received.
