"...for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through through God for the pulling down of strongholds."  2 Cor 10: 4 Never ever minimize, dear Christian, what it took for you to be free in Christ at last. I took a painful death on a Cross, and the complete destruction of the "strongholds" that were holding you prisoner! And--praise God!--now that you are free, you've been equipped to handle "strongholds" as well. Let's take a look...

As irreversible as gravity! The law of sowing and reaping. There are bodies of water that never "give"; there is plenty of "inflow" but nothing flows out! Special names are reserved for such places: "Salton Sea", "Great Salt Lake", "Dead Sea"! And isn't it interesting that, even in our respiration, we must "give" if we want to "receive" and survive. Our Scripture this morning is telling us that the same is true for every Christian. Let's learn this priceless truth together!

Preparation for the last judgment/ plague. Which side are you on? Are you on the side where you see signs of wonder and power, or on the side that only sees plagues?

"...so give proof before the churches of your love..." 2 Cor 8: 24 ESV Paul had been bragging about the corinthians Christians: how enthusiastic they were about that Jerusalem Offering! But that was a year ago and now it's time to collect the offering. What if things have change? What if passions have cooled and people are having second thoughts? Oh, it's "proof-time" in Corinth! Let's take a look... Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange CA  From his series: 2 Corinthians: You The Ultimate Survivor.

"Though He was rich, yet for your sake, He became poor..." 2 Cor 8:9 It all began when ruthless persecution smote the Christians in Jerusalem. A few years later came terrible famine. That's when Paul came up with a brilliant inspiration: what if the non-Jewish Christians took up a collection? Yes! The "children" of the Gospel now blessing the spiritual "parents". It was an outlandish idea! And God has been using Christians to bless the world ever since!

Join us as we read through the 8th and 9th judgment. Most people are not comfortable with the thought of God judging, people dying or suffering, but these judgments/ plagues are a result of how the Egyptians have been dealing harshly with the Israelites and how Pharaoh doesn't want to listen to God's instructions. God cares about the next generations (Ex. 10:2) and will use these judgments to not only teach the current generation but, also, those that will come in the future.

"For Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regrets." 2 Cor 7: 10 NIV "Sorrow never comes too late and happiness too swiftly flies," is Thomas Gray's sad assessment of life. But isn't this Word of God refreshing? Not all sorrow is bad! Some sorrow is definitely needed; can't come soon enough, in fact! And you will never find true happiness without it. Let's dive in...

"But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us..." 2 Cor 7:6 "No pity extends to the prideful man, who carries his own comfort with him." Wow! What a thought! Could it be that our present, carefree generation is just crafting its own "comfort" using self-made baubles and frauds? Oh, this world is in desperate need of real comfort, and there is only One who can bring it!
