Part 1

We've Spoken Openly.

Glossing over some of the most profound text this world has to offer, Paul reiterates righteous rules and profound precepts from our Heavenly Correspondence consisting of a plethora of ideologies which can readily be followed in order to be pleasing to God on our journey towards eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2nd Corinthians 6.11-18 Remastered.mp3

 

We Then as Workers Together with Him

We then as workers together with Him reveals the constance that we as believers in Jesus must traverse when pursuing the Most High:  In anointed unison, we rejoice together in performing the wondrous call of God with one mindand yet, we come to His throne to find unmerited, unearned, and undeserved grace when reasoning with our Heavenly Creator who works within us, never beseeching us to carry out duties that Jesus Himself hasn't previously foreordained as our forerunner.

2nd Corinthians 6.1-10 Remastered.mp3

 

We are the Righteousness of God in Jesus

Elucidated through exegetic explications, two of the most profound doctrines in the Scriptures are expounded: the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ and the avant-garde, cutting edge novel-life of being transformed into a new creation by the Spirit of the living God.

2nd Corinthians 5.12-21 Remastered.mp3

 

The Bema Seat of Christ

We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ to receive the things done in the body, whether good or bad.  Fortunately for the believing saints, there's now no condemnation for those who have accepted Jesus as their eternal righteousness!  Ultimately, we will be lovingly commended, lavishly coronated, and lastly crowned at the Reward (Bema) Seat of Christ!  

2nd Corinthians 5.10-11 Remastered.mp3

 

From the Tent to the House

Finally discarding this old worn-weathered tent and ascending into our heavenly mansion, we'll once and for all inherit our magnificent metaphysical real-estate.’  Jesus said, In My Father's house are many mansions, I go to prepare a place for you and I will return again to receive you to Myself.”  Blessed is the man whose heart is set on pilgrimage!  We are going home! Oh happy day!

2nd Corinthians 5.1-9 Remastered.mp3

 

Treasure in an Earthen Vessel

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.  Outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  God works in us both to will and do for His good pleasure by the Holy Spirit within us.

2nd Corinthians 4.7-18 Remastered.mp3

 

Renouncing the Hidden Things of Shame

But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth have commended ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. Forsaking common practices of unwitting-stealthy deceptions and clandestine agendas, we wear our hearts on our sleeves....

2nd Corinthians 4.1-6 Remastered.mp3

 

The Ministry of Death and Life

The marvelous ministry of the Old Testament luminously exuberated overwhelming glory, which caused Moses' face to shinewhich glory was passing away.  Yet the ministry of the New Covenant exceeds much more in glory; never to depart.  And we, with unveiled face beholding His glory as in a mirror, are being transformed into that same image–from glory to glory!

2nd Corinthians 3.7-18 Remastered.mp3

 

Are you Called to the Ministry?

Therefore since we have this ministry we do not lose heart.  In every faceted arena of life's journey, we're ministers regardless of our social economic status-positioning or confident prowessperforming an anointed work driven by the Holy Spirit who establishes the works of our hands–whose beauty is upon us.  In all we do, we do it as unto the Lord.

2nd Corinthians 3.1-6 Remastered.mp3

 

His Rest will go Before You

Isaiah prophesied of an everlasting sign indicating Gods approval concerning the cloudy contemplating decisions we finalize and nebulous paths we endeavor to embark upon.  We shall go out with peace and be led forth with joyits God's stamp of absolute approval appertaining to the righteous adventures we ventureforevermore. God has made it that simplistic!  Just pursue those things which make for perfect peace!

2nd Corinthians 2.12-17 Remastered.mp3

 

Holy Rebuke and Evil Devices

The Scriptures equip us to wisely correct, rebuke, and exhort with all authority.  And, the second aspect of this survey through Scripture teaches us that we are not ignorant of Satan's devices; his tactical tricks and stealthy schemes inevitably surface to light.  In altruistic heroism, God ultimately springs us from every wile the enemy contrives against us.  The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.

2nd Corinthians 2.1-11 Remastered.mp3

 

Letting our Yes be Yes, and our No...No

Following a verse by verse discourse through systematic messages, we are enlightened to the burgeoning dangers of making futuristic agendas.  Though the Spirit declares to us what is to come, we see through a glass dimly.  We do not know what a day may bring forth or where the Holy Spirit may lead us!  Plan your way, but be open to God re-planning your way!

2nd Corinthians 1.15-24 Remastered.mp3

 

Suffering, Simplicity, and the Promises of God

As the sufferings of Christ abound in us, even so our consolation abounds through Christ; consolation, comfort, and cascading peace have those who love Your law!  Resting in Gods promises, and walking in serene-simplicity causes one to move mighty mountains...Never forget who you are in Jesuswe are the mountain movers, grave-skippers, and water walkers!

2nd Corinthians 1.4-14 Remastered.mp3

 

Introducing this Place Called Corinth

Corinthian corruption perfectly illustrates contemporary society and the warnings systematically taught from Pauline exhortations appertain to the spheres we maneuver in and through on a daily basis.  Viewing the enveloping world which surrounds us, one can only conclude that Jesus is coming quickly to intervene and inaugurate Gods millenial kingdom on earth and cleanse us of Corinthian corruption once and forever. 

2nd Corinthians 1.1-3 Remastered.mp3

 

Part 2

I Write These Things

For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.  Every evil intent that is purposed against us God will turn around for our good.   Joseph's plight was despairingly harsh and desperately horrible, but miraculously twisted into an exceedingly exalted good; in the aftermath, doubtlessly, Joseph would have it no other waynor would we!  Though Joseph's story is momentarily recapped, this surveyed section of Scripture reminisces over various tenets of what the Apostle Paul has declared thus far!

2nd Corinthians 13.6-14 Remastered.mp3

 

Examine Yourselves

Our soul intention and sole ambition is the performance of those heavenly functions that please God on the earth; and our periodic prayers should be requests that God would search us to see if there be any wicked way within us, and to lead us in the way everlasting.

2nd Corinthians 13.1-6 Remastered.mp3

 

Taking no Advantage of Others

Using a God ordained form of sanctified-sarcasm, Paul is concerned that upon his visitation to the Corinthians that he will not find them living a life worthy of the high calling of God.  As a loving spiritual parent, he is duly concerned for their spiritual health.

2nd Corinthians 12.14-21.mp3

 

A Thorn in the Flesh

In various instances we can pray that God would meet our requests or expectations, when, all the while, He chooses to place us in a dependent position whereby we desperately rely upon His salvation to see us through.  Without faith it is impossible to please Him.

2nd Corinthians 12.1-13.mp3

 

The Cost of Following Him

Anyone who wishes to keep His life will lose it; he who loses his life for My sake will keep it.  Those are the words of Jesus who also said, "Anyone who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me."

2nd Corinthians 11.16-33.mp3

 

Privileges of the Genuine, Traits of the False

As children of God we have been given privileges, an ability to know what is to come by the Holy Spirit who guides us into all righteousness and causes us to bear fruit; fruit that remains.  We receive anointing, power, and an illuminated life to declare the good news of Jesus on the cross as the atoning Savior of the world who grants us heavenly access!

2nd Corinthians 11.5-15.mp3

 

Overcoming Deception

Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.  You will know them by their fruits.  Do men gather figs from thistles or grapes from thornbushes?  Even so every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit - Jesus.

2nd Corinthians 11.1-4.mp3

 

Standards of Righteousness, Boundaries of Boasting

If we must make our boast we are only to boast in Him.  Let another man praise you and not your own mouth, a stranger and not your own mouth.  The Psalmist declared that one can Biblically boast in one thing - that you know the word of God!

2nd Corinthians 10.12-18.mp3

 

Weapons of Warfare (Recorded Live and Outdoors)

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.  As an anointed child of God our default mechanism is the unmatched weaponry of prayer.

2nd Corinthians 10.1-11.mp3

 

Open Hearts; Open Hands (Part 2)

Giving is the only area in the Scriptures where God says to try, test, and prove Him.  Any other arena of provocation is borderline insolence.  Give. And see if God won't burst open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing you won't have room enough to receive it.  Try Him!  In this lesson we will learn how the insider and outsider view the giver.

2nd Corinthians 9.1-15.mp3

 

Christian Initiative and Administration

Let all things be done decently and in order.  Christian initiatives must also have allotted boundaries and borderline prerequisites found in the word of God; The Holy Spirit directs every pre-conceived schematic lest any actions transgress the sphere of sanctity from above.

2nd Corinthians 8.16-24.mp3

 

Open Hearts; Open Hands (Part 1)

So let each one give as he purposes in his heart.  Not grudgingly or of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.  He who gives sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who gives bountifully will also reap bountifully.  

2nd Corinthians 8.1-15.mp3

 

Repentance Leading to Salvation

The perfected and established individual has ceased from sin, no longer spending the rest of his time here for the lusts of flesh, but for the will of God; and though the word of the Lord surgically penetrates the heart. Godly sorrow leads to repentance which is not to be regretted.  

2nd Corinthians 7.1-16.mp3
