Sabbath September 21, 2013

The Bible has this definite definition for the study of God’s word, spiritual things spiritually understood. We are going to go through some of the texts in a somewhat different manner than usual. Our purpose for this Sabbath day is to provide you with the specific definitions you need to prove God’s methods of Bible study are correct.

We will be focusing primarily on 1 Corinthians 1:17 – 3:3.

to preach the gospel = the cross of Christ 1:17

the preaching of the cross = the power of God.1:18

the understanding of the prudent = nothing. 1:19

the wisdom of this world = foolish 1:20

the foolishness of preaching = to preach the gospel 1:21

preaching Christ crucified = to the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness 1:23

preaching Christ crucified = Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 1:24

the foolishness of God = the weakness of God = preaching Christ crucified 1:25

the foolish things of the world = the weak things of the world = preaching Christ crucified 1:27

base things of the world = things which are despised = things which are not = preaching Christ crucified 1:28

Christ Jesus = wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 1:30

the testimony of God = preaching Christ crucified 2:1

Jesus Christ, and him crucified = to preach the gospel 2:2

in demonstration of the Spirit and of power = preaching Christ crucified 2:4

the power of God = preaching Christ crucified 2:5

wisdom = preaching Christ crucified; not the wisdom of this world 2:6

the wisdom of God in a mystery = the hidden wisdom 2:7

the deep things of God = preaching Christ crucified 2:10

the things = the deep things of God 2:12

things = which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 2:13

the things of the Spirit of God = foolishness unto man and spiritually discerned. 2:14

the mind of Christ = the deep things of God 2:16

carnal = babes in Christ. 3:1

milk = surface meaning of the Bible; meat = the deep things of God 3:2

carnal = envying, and strife, and divisions, and walking as men of the world 1 Corinthians 3:3

It would be in your best interests to read this portion of scripture and prove this list of definitions….

God Bless your Study
