does this scripture mean?
In reading the Bible, or
anything for that matter, read the context,
so you can see the intent of the writer and understand what is the overview
he is writing about.
If a spiritual person's works
are not loving, kind, helpful, compassionate, understanding of others,
forgiving towards others, etc..–.and
a sincere spiritual person's works will be this way if they are hot for
God; but if they are not that way, but
instead these, then he or she is just 'spinning their wheels', going
nowhere near any hope of a reward, wasting his time here on earth engaged
with things of the self, which take you more or less happily toward the
end of your time here.
Being like this usually means
an eventual loss of these things as one goes through the fires of life.
He himself will be saved,
but obviously having not qualified for
a reward, he having regarded this present evil world and the things in
it as more important that the
real world to come.
3:13 What does."discovering
the foundation unto the neck".mean
hast come forth to the salvation of thy people, to salvation, with thine
anointed one. Thou hast crushed the head out of the house of the lawless
one, being the foundation up to the neck."
4:22 "For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested;
neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.".Openness
No one can cover his deeds
from God who eventually requites
34:21 "For his eyes are upon the ways of man and he seeth all his goings."
29:15 "Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the
LORD and their works are in the dark and they say, Who seeth us? and who
is Paul saying here about God's grace?
not I, but the grace of God which was with me".part
of the verse, is talking about how Paul felt about things.
Like us today, some things
we just want to avoid. Paul seeing this in himself also saw together with
it, a burning desire present, a burning desire which enabled him to have
long term vision and to press on toward a better
day. This was his hope. And he commented about what it would be like:.1Corinthians
The spirit life as a member
of the God family that Jesus Christ now enjoys so far eclipses this life
that there really is not comparison. That's when the real
living will start:.1Corinthians
when will Christ return to this earth?
New Testament Notes:.He
first appeared as the Man of sorrows to make atonement
for sin. His second appearance would be as the Lord of His people and Judge
of the quick and the dead:.Matthew
25:31. The apostle does not say when this would be, nor is any intimation
given in the Scriptures when it will occur. It is, on the contrary, everywhere
declared that this is concealed from men:.Acts
Matthew 24:36. All that
is known respecting the time is, that it will be suddenly and at an unexpected
indications are is that it occurred
in 70 A.D.

word of the Gospel, gathering
into itself all the redemptive acts and processes: as justification,
