to the whole world, which is lost and hell-bound because of sin, but through the crucifixion of Jesus Christ alone salvation,
is at hand.
the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this
world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching
to save them that believe.
For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified,
unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ
the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling,
brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen
the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things
which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which
are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus,
who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written,
He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
The scriptures declare in John’s gospel: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was
made. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father,) full of grace and truth”.
From eternal glory to flesh, to the cross, to the grave,to resurrected life and ALL power in Heaven and earth.
He (Jesus Christ) made amends for our sins on the cross as the scriptures declare while we were yet sinners Christ
died for the ungodly.This so we could be pardoned and reconciled to God.Jesus declared that He is the only way to the Father and if anyone attempted to come
another way he was a thief and a robber. The atoning sacrifice on the cross could only be made by Him
who knew no sin (Jesus) that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
To the unbelieving, ungodly, proud, unholy, wicked, profane, lawless, disobedient, mockers, lovers of their own selves,
covetous, boasters, blasphemers, wise of this world, adulterers, fornicators, those who are unclean, lascivious, practice
witchcraft, sorcerers, murderers, drunkards, revelers, homosexuals, lesbians, thieves, unthankful, ungrateful, abominable,
whoremongers, idolaters, and all liars, the preaching of the cross is foolishness and contemptible.
In fulfilling the great and only commission given by the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to go into the world and preach
the gospel to every creature in order that they might be saved I frequently encounter the reproachful disdain of those mentioned
above when Jesus is preached. To them it is foolishness for many different reasons i.e., their eyes are blinded, they love
their sins, they believe another gospel, another spirit, or even another Jesus.
But unto us which are saved it is the power of God All mighty to cleanse us
of our sins, to remove them as far as the east is from the west.
The power to:
Save us from eternal damnation
Save our family
Heal our bodies
Anoint us for service
Enable us to endure to the end
Help us overcome the wicked one
Bind and loose in Jesus mighty name
Walk in newness of life
Be filled with the Holy Spirit
Be conformed to His image
Cast down vain imaginations
Fight the good fight of faith
Reign in life
Love our neighbors
Establish God’s word on earth
Bless the Lord at all times
Be led by His Spirit
Walk as He walked
Pray without ceasing
Be bold in the Lord and tell everyone about Jesus
Be strong in faith
Grow in Faith
Walk by faith and not by sight
Love our enemies
Forgive those who trespass against us
Fill us with divine wisdom and spiritual understanding
Deliver us from anything as He will for His glory
Complete the work He has begun in us
Be a doer of the word
Do all things through christ who strengthens us
