Ministers of the New Covenant
2 Corinthians 3
1 Do we begin to praise ourselves again? Or need we as some others, Epistles of recommendation unto you, or letters of recommendation from you?
2 Ye are our epistle, written in our hearts, which is understood and read of all men;
3 In that ye are manifest, to be the Epistle of Christ, ministered by us, and written, not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God, not in tablets of stone, but in fleshly tablets of the heart.
4 And such trust have we through Christ to God;
5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to think anything, as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God,
6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the New Testament, not of the letter, but of the Spirit; for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life.
7 If then the ministration of death written with letters and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not behold the face of Moses, for the glory of his countenance (which glory is done away.)
8 How shall not the ministration of the Spirit be more glorious?
9 For if the ministry of condemnation was glorious, much more doeth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
10 For even that which was glorified, was not glorified in this point, that is, as touching the exceeding glory.
11 For if that which should be abolished, was glorious, much more shall that which remaineth be glorious.
12 Seeing then that we have such trust, we use great boldness of speech.
13 And we are not as Moses, which put a veil upon his face, that the children of Israel should not look unto the end of that which should be abolished.
14 Therefore their minds are hardened; for until this day remaineth the same covering untaken away in the reading of the Old Testament, which veil in Christ is put away.
15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is laid over their hearts.
16 Nevertheless when their heart shall be turned to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 But we all behold as in a mirror the glory of the Lord with open face, and are changed into the same image, from glory to glory, as by the Spirit of the Lord.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
