Galatians 1

Galatians The Epistles of Paul have been attacked and twisted from the very days of Paul himself. Today they are twisted and perverted so as to appear to mean the exact opposite of what they do mean, turning Paul’s teachings to keep God’s Word with passionate zeal into an excuse to minimize and compromise with […]

Second Corinthians 12 – 13

2 Corinthians 12 2 Corinthians 12:1 It is not expedient [appropriate] for me doubtless to [engage in self glorying] glory [therefore] I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4 2 Corinthians 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things [secret sins] of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully [dishonestly like many today]; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to […]

Second Corinthians 2 – 3

2 Corinthians 2 Paul continues to explain why he is delaying his visit to Corinth. He does not want to come to them with more rebukes, he wants to find them in sincere repentance for the terrible sin of being proud of tolerating sin in their midst as is also done in today’s Ekklesia. 2 […]

First Corinthians 11

1 Corinthians 11 1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Jesus Christ taught us to live by EVERY WORD of God the Father in Christ-like zeal (Mat 4:4) in all things at all times! Jesus Christ is the ONLY High Priest, effectual sacrifice and intercessor with God […]

First Corinthians 7 – 8

1 Corinthians 7 1 Corinthians 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 7:3 Let the husband render unto the wife due […]

First Corinthians 6

1 Corinthians 6 The following is speaking about lawsuits between members of the body of believers. Paul backs the instructions of Jesus Christ the HEAD of the body in Matthew 18. We are to do our best to try and work out our disputes and if that cannot be done then we are to go […]

First Corinthians 5

1 Corinthians 5 Those who pride themselves on tolerating sin, ignorantly supposing that tolerating sin is love; are just like the brethren of Corinth. Here is what the scriptures have to say about that. 1 Corinthians 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much […]

First Corinthians 3 – 4

1 Corinthians 3 1 Corinthians 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual [Paul could not write to them as if they were mature spiritual people.], but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were […]

Romans 15 – 16

Romans 15 We are instructed to help those younger or weaker in the faith to learn and grow in godliness, and we are not to cause them to stumble over non-biblical personal preferences, cultural or racial issues   We are not to just do everything that we want, but we are to be considerate of the sensitivities of […]

Romans 13 – 14

Romans 13 Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: The highest power being God himself; therefore always put God first and obey others only as their teachings, laws, rulings and commands do not conflict with God’s Word. 13:2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth […]

Romans 11 – 12

Romans 11 God has not permanently cast away physical Israel, but has set physical Israel aside until another time, when he will call all Israel into spiritual Israel.  So far only a few have been called out of physical Israel, just as only a few have been called from the Gentiles into the New Covenant.  Remember Paul is trying to resolve difficulties between […]

Romans 9 – 10

Romans 9 Paul addresses apparent rivalries between the racial Jews and Gentiles; teaching them that it is only those who are faithfully obedient to the whole Word of God who are spiritual Jews and the children of Abraham indeed.  Therefore all who are faithfully believing and obedient to the Word of God are the true spiritual […]
