Promises from First Corinthians

These promises are so powerful, I hope you are enjoying these studies, we need them in order to be equipped with the divine nature of Christ, and be an overcomer.  See 2 Peter 1:4.

1 Corinthians 1:18  "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." What is the message of the cross?  It is the power of God to those who are being saved.  How wonderful!!!

1 Corinthians 2:5  "Your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God." Make sure when you study your Bible, you take it just as it reads.  DO NOT let others interpret it for you. If you ask for the Holy Spirit's guidance, you will understand what it is saying.  We must have faith in the Scriptures as God's word to us.

1 Corinthians 2:9,10  "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.  But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit.  For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God." Be faithful my friend, the glories of heaven and the new earth are far beyond the beauty and glory of our imagination.

1 Corinthians  2:12  "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God."

1 Corinthians  2:16  "For who knows the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?  But we have the mind of Christ."   Philippians 2:5  "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus."  How do we get the mind of Christ, well for one, it is promised to us right there and the way we get it is studying His promises and applying them to our lives.

1 Corinthians 10:13  "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make a way of escape, that you may be able to bear it."  God will make a way to escape from falling into the temptation and also help us to be able to bear it."

1 Corinthians 15:57  "But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
Thank you Jesus for the victory that you gives us through the life you lived and the blood you shed for us on the cross.

I want to explain something about these studies, I have many readers from many countries, and that is the reason, I try to help them understand what the verse is saying.  I know there are some whose education is not adequate and also there are people who are not acquainted with the Scriptures and sometimes if you skim over them without thinking, you miss the whole meaning of the verse.  So please bear with me as I try to make the verses clear to those who do not understand as you do.  I want everyone to enjoy these studies and benefit from them with a stronger faith in God and a better life.  Love all of you and want to be your neighbor in heaven and on the new earth.  Grandma Joan
