2 Corinthians 6:14 (GNT) Do not try to work with unbelievers on an equal footing, for this cannot happen. How can good and evil be partners? How can light and darkness live together? Romans 13:12-14 The night is far dead, the day is near: so let us strip the works of darkness and put the armor of light. 2. For God`s promise is the reason for our admonition. He says: God the Father speaks to God the Son, and therefore to all believers who are considered one with Him. In the eternal designs of my love, I have listened to your prayer for the salvation of your people (cf. Jn 17:9 John 17:15 John 17:20 John 17:24). adopted. Accepted – The Greek of the latter is more emphatic, “well accepted”. What was “an accepted time” in prophecy (Isaiah 49:8, Hebrew, “in the time of grace”) becomes “a time well received” in fulfillment (cf. Psalm 69:13). Since this is God`s time to receive sinners, receive His grace: accept (2 Corinthians 6:1) the Word of Reconciliation in His accepted time. the day of salvation – “a day of redemption” (Luke 4:18 Luke 4:19 Luke 4:21, 19:42, Hebrews 3:7).
6. To . . . de, &c.–rather, like the Greek, “In. . . in”, which implies not the instrument, but the sphere or element in which his service has moved. Knowledge – spiritual: in the mysteries of the Gospel, inaccessible by simple reason (1 Corinthians 2:6-16, 2 Corinthians 3:6 2 Corinthians 3:17 2 Corinthians 3:18). patient. Goodness – associated with “charity” or “love” (1 Corinthians 13:4), as here. by the Holy Spirit – by virtue of His influences that produce these graces and other gifts, with “ungendered love” being the most important of them.
16. Agreement – Agreement of feelings (cf. 1 Kings 18:21, Ephesians 5:7 Ephesians 5:11). the temple of God – that is, you believers (1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19). who believes with an unbeliever – translate “a believer with an unbeliever”. Verses 1-10 The gospel is a word of grace that rings in our ears. Gospel Day is a day of redemption, the means of grace is the means of salvation, the offers of the gospel are the offer of salvation, and presence is the right time to accept these offers. Tomorrow is not ours: we do not know what tomorrow will be, or where we will be. .
