2 Corinthians:

This series of messages is a verse by verse exposition of the book of 2 Corinthians by Cornel Rasor, a pastor at Kootenai Community Church. These messages were preached during our Sunday Morning Worship Service. Click here for more teaching by Cornel Rasor.

An Approved Ministry (2 Corinthians 3:16-4:1)

The self-imposed veil that obscures our view of the Lord Jesus Christ is removed from the elect at salvation. It remains with unbelievers. Once removed, ministers of Christ who are the Church, are sanctified day by day, step by step to become the letter of commendation that Paul references in chapter 3:1.

The true liberty that the Holy Spirit gives, frees God’s ministers to do the works He planned for them before time began. Paul encourages the Corinthians and us by extension not to lose heart but to live in that liberty. An exposition of 2 Corinthians 3:16-4:1.

Ministers of the New Covenant (2 Corinthians 3:10-16)

Paul here reminds the Corinthians that the glory of the Old Testament pales in comparison to the glory of the New Testament and the work of the Lord Jesus Christ consummating everything the Old Testament pointed to and anticipated. His speeches bold and to the point, because he has the truth-the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Jews of that time continue to have a veil over their understanding because they would not accept the Messiah. Unbelief today results in the same thing. 2 Corinthians 3:10-16.
