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.

  • #But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless, when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. II Cor. 3:15-17

    Jesus has done away with the vail and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty. We have complete perfect Liberty in Jesus Christ and we can read the old testament with joy as well as Liberty. Thank the Lord for this freedom that we have in the Holy Spirit.

  • #Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. II Cor.3:12-14

    Jesus Christ took away the veil of the old testament when he died upon the Cross and fulfilled all the prophecies that were written about him. Now we do not have to cover our faces when we read the old testament as the vail is done away with in Christ. The children of Israel are mostly blinded to this until they accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

  • #For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious. II Cor.3:10-11

    The law was glorious, but now it is not what remaineth. For that which remains is grace and it is more glorious. The Law condemned all sinners but the Law came by Moses but Grace and Truth came by Jesus and it remains, thus it is far more glorious. Jesus is the truth that sets us free and we manifest the fruits of the spirit to evidence our liberty in Christ. 

  • #But if the ministration of death, written and engraved in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious? For if the ministration of condemnation is glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory. II Cor.3:7-9

    The Law was engraved in stones and condemned all as sinners and worthy of death. So the children of Israel could not behold the face of Moses because of the veil over it. In Jesus Christ, the ministration of righteousness exceeds in glory and does away with the veil of Moses in the Law. Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech.

  • #And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves, but our sufficiency is of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. II Cor. 3:4-6

    Thank God that our sufficiency is in Christ to God-ward and has made us able ministers of the new testament. Not by the letter, but of the spirit. For the letter kills but the Spirit gives life.

  • #Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? Ye are our epistles written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. II Cor.3:1-3 

    We are epistles, letters written not in ink, but declared to be the epistle of Christ. We are read and known of all men, but with the Spirit of the living God. So be careful what you are writing, as others see Christ in you with a fleshy heart, not in tables of stone. What an honor by God that he allows us to minister to you and we are accountable to God for what we write. 


  • #Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place. For we are unto God a sweet savor of Christ, in them that perish: To the one we are the savor of death unto death and to the other the savor of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not many, which corrupt the word of God, but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ. II Cor. 2:14-17

    We thank God for the leading of us in triumph in Christ and make known the savor of Christ everywhere to those who are saved. To those who are lost, we are the savor of death unto death. Who is sufficient for these things? We are in Christ and we preach Christ out of the sincerity of the word of God. In Christ, we make God known to all and rejoice that we are ambassadors for Christ where ever God sends us.

  • #To whom ye forgive anything, I forgive also: for if I forgave anything, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ. Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel and a door was opened unto me in the Lord. I had no rest in my spirit because I found not Titus my brother, but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into Macedonia. II Cor. 2:10-13

    When your brother sins against you, then rebuke him and if he repents then forgive him, lest Satan takes advantage of you. Paul had a great door opened to preach the gospel of Christ, but he looked for Titus to help him and could not find him. So Paul went on to Macedonia to do the work of the Lord. Some times our brothers and sisters leave us at an inopportune time, yet we must forgive them and do the work of the Lord as the Holy Spirit helps us. 

  • #But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness. For if I make you sorry, who is he that maketh me glad but the same which is sorry for me? And I wrote this same unto you, lest when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice, having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all. For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you. But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me but in part: that I may not overcharge you all.  Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. So that contrariwise ye ought rather forgive him and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. II Cor. 2:1-7

    Paul was heavy of heart and did not want to cause sorrow of whom should cause joy. Satan is always trying to take the influence of us by not forgiving anyone who has sinned. Once the person has been rebuked, we must forgive lest the one will be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. So this is what Paul had to warn the Corinthians, lest Satan takes advantage of them. This is a good lesson for us today so may the Lord give us the grace to move on and forgive by keeping the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

  • #And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit and to pass by you into Macedonia and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea. When I,  therefore, was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be the yea yea and nay nay? But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay. II Cor. 1:15-18

    Paul, Silvanus, and Timotheus came preaching Christ, not as yea, nay but as God is true we say yea and Amen to the glory of God for his promises. So when God answers prayer it is always yea and not in the flesh as it is said nay. We have to be ready to say Amen to the glory of God for his goodness in knowing what we need. That does not mean that God does not say no to us, but all his promises are yea and we have to align ourselves to the will of God by saying yea and Amen to his will.
