According to your work...we read what He says pertaining to the outward man which perishes, this world which perishes and passes away, the old crucified ...all things created and made new in Christ. The command is to walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
The word says Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light...and this is no great marvel as his ministers are able also to transform themselves into light. If one reads further this is clarified in 2 Corinthians 11:18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also.
“...glory after the flesh...”
While it should be “...glory after the Spirit.” Always rejoicing and praying in the Spirit.
Whether one acknowledges it or not there is an angst. Man looking upon the outward of a man while God looks on the inward hidden man of the heart. We have the verses which tell us God does not judge by outward appearance. The world judges someone sick and in need of medicine yet they have no insurance to pay for the ridiculous cost of treatments as unworthy to be made well. The world’s system says they can’t have the medicine they need because they don’t have the money to buy it. What do you say to someone sick and in need of life saving treatment but can’t afford it. There is no hope? We don’t like it but in this world’s system they lose. They can’t have what is needed because of men and regulations that favour money and the greed of it and not people. But the children of God the Father should know God doesn’t turn away for lack of money but calls out to all in need of a physician to come to Him. He is the opposite of greed and respect of persons but calls to those that do not have any power left. Men throw out what has lost its savour and trodden it down before other men...but when it has lost its savour where does it find savour? From above and not of men. God chooses out the dung heap and lifts up and restores the despised, the rejected, the poor, the broken, the bleeding, the hurting, the fearful...the Feebleminded...the chief’s of all sinners...the fools...The lost.
Could spend the rest of my time telling others about His love and it would not be enough time to praise Him for what He has done which is the impossible...despite men attempts to prevent. So consider I am sick yet I am healed. I am Weak in outward appearance yet strong in the Resurrected Spirit of God. Men can’t control your entrance into His Hope and glory nor deny you of it.
Cursed yet blessed. Lame yet walking. Ashamed yet never ashamed. Dead yet made alive. Poor yet possessing all things. Which do you walk in: cursed, lame, ashamed, death, and poor. OR Blessed, never to be ashamed for Christ’s sake, ALIVE, running, and possessing all things? Servant to men YET made free from all men. Dead and crucified in trespasses and sin YET made alive in the resurrected Son of God; Who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords inheriting all things. Revelation 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS .
2 Corinthians 6:1-11
 We then,...
as workers together with him , ...beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.  (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)  Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:  But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,  In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;  By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,  By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
...By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report:
... as deceivers, and yet true;
...As unknown, and yet well known;
...as dying, and, behold, we live;
...as chastened, and not killed;
...As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing;
...as poor, yet making many rich;
...as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged.
