Coming To Nothing: A Brief Comment on 1 Cor. 2:6

A great sadness swept over me as I read a word from Scripture and the Holy Spirit quickened that passage to me. This is what I was shown.

“We . . . speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing” (1 Cor. 2:6 NIV).

Why only among the mature? and who is mature enough to qualify to hear it, much less understand it? The answer: Only among the spiritually mature, because those spiritually immature will turn on those telling them things too deep for them to understand and will tear them to pieces.

Healed so that I can walk up the stairs.

My body has been under bombardment for years in pain and sickness and when I recently moved house I was told by occupational therapy there is a long wait for a stair lift. TOO LONG! I was going up the stairs and down the stairs at times on my bottom. I cried out to God and said, I can’t wait for a stair Lift Lord, I need your help now, I want to walk. As I was checking out the different churches in Eastbourne a word of knowledge was given that a lady in their congregation today who has not been to their church before has bad knees, to go forward for prayer.

Giving to an Online Church

Like most churches, when we begin, we are going to receive offerings. People are going to be invited to contribute financially to the development of the online community. Why is this?

The Power of Your Words

God has put creative power on the inside of us, and that power is released by speaking words.

The Salvation Prayer – is it a Powerful Sacrament or has it become an Abused Tool?

Why We Have Painful Challenges and Trials

If God removed all challenges, we would never grow and overcome obstacles. He often permits difficulty in our lives because He is trying to reveal something that needs to be strengthened or changed in us. Our weaknesses are never revealed in good times, but they quickly show up in times of trial and tribulation.
 
Sometimes He shows us what we are afraid of because He wants to deliver us from that fear and strengthen us for things that will come in the future. In those times, we need to say, "Thank You, God, for allowing me to see that fear in my life.

Trading Treasures for Trinkets

It makes no sense to trade treasure for trinkets, but the Bible records many such examples of this. We should learn from them. “These things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did” (1 Cor. 10:6 NIV). “These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come” (1 Cor. 10:11 NIV).

My thoughts.

We will have those who stand aginast but if we are following the Lord’s will for than they are really standing against God’s will.

How the Apostle Paul worked with Church People

I've seen a lot of interesting principles in a short passage from Romans 1 which is often skipped over because it is close to other verses of major importance. We can learn a lot about Paul's priorities through these verses.
 
8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

Is Heaven and Hell Real?

Is Heaven and Hell Real?

The short answer is YES.

The Choices we make today will determine where we spend Eternity. We live a lifetime of planning for this life but what about your plans for your Eternal Life? You will live for an Eternity either in Heaven or in Hell the choice is yours. We live our lives at the brink of Eternity every second of time. We are all just a heartbeat away from Eternity. We never really know what an hour or day may bring.
