In the book of 2 Cor. 4:3,-5 Paul is taking to the Corinth people about opening up their eyes to see; and the same message apply to us today. When we start reading in these verses of 3-5 in 2 Cor. 4, we will start to get a clear understanding of what Apostle Paul was saying, I pray that you do. Paul said, But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost. In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but your servants for Jesus’s sake….. In a sense Apostle Paul is not saying the gospel of Christ is hid, Jesus will never cover up His gospel He want all people to know Him, not just by what good things others are saying about Him; of course all of that is good and true, but He wants you to come to the knowledge of repentance and get to know Him for yourself on a more personal level.. That is what Jesus is saying and that is what Paul is saying..
The evil one do not want you to see none of this that is why he tries to blind as many as possible, but God God gotta Paul to raise up, who thought he was on his way to persecute and vex the church until he meet a man named Jesus hallelujah. We can learn a lot from Paul. So yes Paul is saying, because Satan has blinded some of you minds the gospel is hid because you can’t see the glorious grace of the cross which only Jesus Christ can save you through, by faith in what He did for us.. This is what Apostle Paul were talking about. Satan has blinded the eyes of the ones that don’t know Christ Paul says, and have put scales over their eyes so that they couldn’t see.. Of course who knew that well enough other than Paul himself because he once had scales over his eyes too and could not see persecuting and vexing the church of God; Paul thought he was doing God a favor, until Jesus came and knock him down.. Paul regretted persecuting the church and mostly he regretted treating the Lord that way.. Paul knew he could never repay the Lord for sparing his life, but God did. He from then on started going around preaching Jesus and loving on the church after given God his life and he did it to the fullest, we can see this is true according to scriptures.
I can see Satan now he thought he had Paul and the church; that goes to show you what little do Satan know. He knows nothing when he’s tries to come against the people of God, but for the ones that don’t know him he has much power over them and sadly to say, for some Christians as well. Either they don’t know how to use it or they just flat out give in to Satan.. To me that just like saying to satan, if you want me you can just have me. No! What? The devil is a liar and the father of them. Girl, boy, woman or man don’t you do that.. It’s not a necessity to give in to this Ungodly creature it is forbidden by the creator who is God.. How can we as lovers to Christ fall and stoop so low in our spirits when God has clearly giving us Jesus to have and to hold when we’re wanting to desiring other gods in our lives. I dare we treat the Lord like that! These things will never hold us up or last because they are perishing with the foolish ways of Satan’s world.. Notice I did not say satan’s earth because the earth is the Lord’s and the fullest therefore and they that dwells in it.. The Lord has giving us a attitude spirit to tell Satan with confident, Look! Satan you can have this old world, but give me back my Jesus because He’s the one I’m really in love with..
Guess What y’all? Satan had Jesus although he bite Him on the heel, he had to let Jesus go hallelujah glory to God because Jesus died and got down off of that cross and crushed Satan in the head real good and destroyed him forever. Jesus came back up out of that grave with all powers in His hands, and not only that, but my bible tells me in Matt. 27:52,53, those who slept that were on the Lord’s side came back up out of our graves with Him that was you and I hallelujah glory to God this was our resurrection with Jesus.. We rose up with Him.. Death was swallowed up in Victory. Hallelujah..
Make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today if you haven’t already. Peace and blessings to you. Amen🙏
