BUT I was not surprised: I understood why he said that even as I understand why you call Lox and those who understand allegory Zombies
2Cr 3:2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
2Cr 3:3 [Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, (((written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God)))); not in tables of stone, but in ((((fleshy tables of the heart)))).
2Cr 3:4 ¶ And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
2Cr 3:5 ((((Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency [is] of God))));
ME: IT IS CHRIST IN ME who speaks the LIVING WORD that flows continually from my belly/womb/heart like LIVING WATER
2Cr 3:6 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.
ME:I use the letter to show why I speak the way I do from the abundance of the HEART where the LIVING WORD was engrafted, but those who don't have the SPIRIT, think I am lying about having it in me: They are still being KILLED by the LETTER and don't know it yet:
2Cr 3:7 ¶ But (((if the ministration of death, written))) [and] engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which [glory] was to be done away:
THE STONES it is written on is the HEART OF STONE, heart of the law....Israel without the Spirit of Christ...
2Cr 3:8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
2Cr 3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation [be] glory, much more doth (((the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.))))
this is the ministration that those who are crucified with CHRIST have...witnesses of Jesus:
2Cr 3:10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
2Cr 3:11 For if that which is done away [was] glorious, much more that which remaineth [is] glorious.
2Cr 3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, (((we use great plainness of speech)))):
ME: its only PLAIN to those who UNDERSTAND it plainly:
2Cr 3:13 And not as Moses, [which] put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
2Cr 3:14 But ((((their minds were blinded)))): for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which [vail] is done away in Christ.
2Cr 3:15 But even unto ((((this day)))), when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
ME: IT means "THIS DAY" still if you don't have CHRIST in the HEART....you still can't understand when MOSES is read:
2Cr 3:16 Nevertheless ((((when it shall turn to the Lord))), the vail shall be taken away.
ME: THE "IT" is the HEART
2Cr 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty.
2Cr 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord.
