Hear The Word Of God


The Lord Jesus Christ fought the battle, but we won the war. I Thank You Lord Jesus now and forever more!!!

2 Corinthians 10:5 We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ,

Paul sees himself at war with these false teachers. He has written that he does not fight with physical weapons but with spiritual ones. These tools, such as prayer and Scripture, are powered by God. This makes them potent enough for Paul and his fellow workers to destroy strongholds of resistance to the true gospel of Jesus.

Paul reveals an essential truth. Wrong teaching leads to wrong thinking, which leads to disobedience to Christ.

Understanding the true knowledge of God leads to right thinking, which leads to obedience to Christ.

In going to war against the false arguments of his opponents, Paul’s final goal is that God’s people would obey Christ. Paul doesn’t fight for his own glory or for the sake of victory alone, but to bring more and more obedience to Christ among the Corinthians.
