is confusing, contradictory and archaic.
The KJB is not only the easiest bible to read, it is the easiest to
The KJB is God's Holy Scriptures and is the ONLY Holy Scripture!
Here is how it can be so simply understood:

the Risen Christ to Paul and On To Us Today
we have confidence in the Lord touching you,
ye both do and will do the things which we command you.
they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you,
how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;
things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in
the God of peace shall be with you.

from part III)
Philippians 1:27-29 - Only
let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether
I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that
ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith
of the gospel; And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to
them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of
God. For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe
on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
gospel of Christ

that does not mean to Jesus' teachings

- For they verily for a few days chastened
us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be
partakers of his holiness.
I Peter 4:13
- But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers
of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye
may be glad also with exceeding joy.
II Peter 1:4
- Whereby are given unto us exceeding great
and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine
nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through

Stand fast at all times!
even when alone
One spirit - one baptism - one body,
one Spirit, one Lord, one faith, one Book, one way, one Paul, one author
(God); one preacher, one pastor/teacher, etc.
- One God and Father of all, who
is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Don't be afraid to witness or 'do right'
or 'not do wrong' in daily situations! Stand fast & know why!
If you are afraid in tense situations
and if your confidence is down, they will KNOW you don't know or care enough
about what you believe!
They see that you are not real!
No dissimulated love when you know you
should abhor evil!
- Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to
that which is good.
Note: you will suffer - expect it, so
walk and talk the truth!
You know it is your evident token of
your salvation, and that of God!
Unless you are being stupid and getting
arrested or dying for wrong battle!
saying wrong things
church building, etc.
Our efforts down here on this earth
for in preparation for the Judgment seat of Christ, not to live a better
and prosperous life now.
Not for trying to justify and live a
'successful life' as much as it is to live a 'righteous' life based on
HIS righteousness, etc.
Goal for the church
- But why dost thou judge thy brother?
or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before
the judgment seat of Christ.
5:10 - For we must all appear before the
judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in
his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
2:25-30 - Yet
I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion
in labour, and fellowsoldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered
to my wants. For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because
that ye had heard that he had been sick. For indeed he was sick nigh unto
death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest
I should have sorrow upon sorrow. I sent him therefore the more carefully,
that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less
sorrowful. Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold
such in reputation: Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death,
not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.

can we have 'wants?'
the absence of that which is necessary or useful
The state of not
for; to desire.
8:12-16 - For if there be first a willing
mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to
that he hath not. For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply
for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want:
that there may be equality: As it is written, He that had gathered much
had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack. But thanks
be to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for
9:6-13 - But this I say, He which soweth
sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall
reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart,
so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful
giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always
having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: (As
it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his
righteousness remaineth for ever. Now he that ministereth seed to the sower
both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase
the fruits of your righteousness;) Being enriched in every thing to all
bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God. For the administration
of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant
also by many thanksgivings unto God; Whiles by the experiment of this ministration
they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ,
and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men;
11:5-10 - For I suppose I was not
a whit behind the very chiefest apostles. But though I be rude in speech,
yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you
in all things. Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might
be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely? I
robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service. And when
I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that
which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied:
and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and
so will I keep myself. As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop
me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.
Paul was always
content through it all
Not that I speak in repsect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever
state that I am, therewith to be content.

what the folks couldn't do for Paul
Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when
I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning
giving and receiving, but ye only. For even in Thessalonica ye sent once
and again unto my necessity. Not because I desire a gift: but I desire
fruit that may abound to your account. But I have all, and abound:
I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from
you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to
They lacked opportunity,
but now they flourish!
4:10 - But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly,
that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye
were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.
