today is the right time to return to God. God the Father. Today is the day of salvation. today’s word is “accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness” !
2 Corinthians 6 (in parts)
New Living Translation (NLT)
1 As God’s partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness and then ignore it. 2 For God says,
“At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.”
Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.
4 In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God.
6 We prove ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love. 7 We faithfully preach the truth. God’s power is working in us.
14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? 16 And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:
“I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.17 Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you. 18 And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
6 As we work together with him, we also urge you not to receive the Chen v’Chesed Hashem in vain. [2C 5:20]
4 But in everything presenting ourselves [2C 4:2] as mesharetim of Hashem in much savlanut (patience),
6 In purity, in da’as, in longsuffering, in chesed, in the Ruach Hakodesh, in ahavah amittit,
7 In the dvar HaEmes, in the gevurat Hashem, through the weapons of Tzedek of the right hand and of the left.
14 Do not become unequally yoked with koferim (unbelievers) [Ep 5:7,11] for what shuttafut (partnership) has Tzedek with Lawlessness? Or where is the Brit (Covenant) between Ohr (light) and Choshech (darkness)? [BERESHIS 24:3; DEVARIM 22:10]
15 And what harmony does Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach have with B’liya’al? Or what chelek (allotment, inheritance) has a ma’amin with an Apikoros?
16 And what agreement has the Heikhal of Hashem with elilim? For we are a Heikhal of the Elohim Chayyim [1C 3:16; 6:19] as G-d said, “V’HITHALLACHTI B’TOCHCHEM (“And I will walk in the midst of you” [VAYIKRA 26:12] I WILL BE MISHKANI ALEHEM (“dwelling place of me with them” [YECHEZKEL 37:27]) V’HAYU LI L’AM VAANI EHEYEH LAHEM LELOHIM [YIRMEYAH 32:38] (“And they will be to me as people and I will be to them as G-d.” [YIRMEYAH 32:38]
17 Therefore, SURU (Depart!), come out from the midst of them and be separated, says Adoneinu, and a TAMEH AL TIGAU “unclean thing do not touch;” [YESHAYAH 52:11] ERTZEH ETCHEM “and I will receive you”, [YECHEZKEL 20:34,41; Rv 18:4]
18 And I will be to you an AV and you will be to me BANIM and BANOT (“my daughters” [SHMUEL BAIS 7:8,14; YESHAYAH 43:6; YIRMEYAH 31:9] says Adonoi Tzva’ot. [SHEMOT 4:22; DIVREY HAYAMIM ALEF 17:13; AMOS 3:13; 4:13 TARGUM HASHIVIM Rv 4:8; 11:17; 15:3; 21:22
