Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

November 2 - Evening

"Do you not know that the Lord’s people will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases? Do you not know that
we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life! Therefore, if you have disputes about such matters, do
you ask for a ruling from those whose way of life is
scorned in the church? I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers?”

- 1 Corinthians 6:2-5

You Must Be Kidding! Do You Not Know...?"    

In First Corinthians chapter six Paul challenges the intelligence and logic of the arrogant Corinthian church when he says six times in this one chapter, “Do you not know…?” If there is any question
concerning Paul’s attitude, his intentions are made clear when he writes:

“I say this to shame you!” (1 Corinthians 6:5)

The Corinthians continue to have trouble with division that is being manifest in a variety
of ways within the church. Paul challenges them to take the initiative to deal with the situations
and resolve the conflict themselves. He approaches this issue by reminding the Corinthians that
God originally created them as leaders on planet earth and, now that they are in Christ, they are being prepared to rule with Christ in the future. (Matt. 19:28; Luke 22:28-32;
Daniel 7:22; Revelation 2:26-27; Hebrews 2:5-9)

God has a great plan for the redeemed who have been taken from among mankind. We are being prepared for a great eternity that involves so much more than floating on clouds and playing harps! Concerning the future age, Paul says:

            “The Lord’s people will judge the world…we will judge angels.”

But, it would be nice if these future world leaders and judges in the kingdom of God could demonstrate some level of competency in today’s world by resolving simple conflicts among themselves.  Paul then asks a rhetorical question to jar these self-glorifying, arrogant leaders
in the Corinthians church:

“Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers?”

  Christian Quote from Church History

“One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always.“
- A. W. Tozer




Something to Ponder??

Edward Irving predicted in 1867 that the thousand
year reign, or the Millennium, began in 1867.

Thesauros (Gr) - Treasure (Eng) - this Greek word thesauros means "treasury,"
"treasure box," and "storehouse." In the ancient world the thesauros would be in the city's temple. Our word "thesaurus" comes from thesauros because a thesaurus is a treasury of words.

  Acts 18:12 refers to Gallio, a proconsul in Achaia, Greece during Paul's days in Corinth (50-52 AD). This same Gallio was found named in an inscription from 52 AD. He is mentioned in a decree from Emperor Claudius written in April-July of 52 AD.
