the Risen Christ to Paul and On To Us Today
(more from Philippians)
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.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory...
13. Walk by the same rule...
2:3-8 - Let nothing be done through strife
or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than
themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also
on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ
Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal
with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form
of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion
as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the
death of the cross.
to another; to he in contention or dispute.

Christ did it
for us, so can we for others also?
Not to strive...
2:23-26 - But foolish and unlearned questions
avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord
must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In
meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure
will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they
may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive
by him at his will.
2:14 - Of these things put them in remembrance,
charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit,
but to the subverting of the hearers.
Yes to strive...
- Now I beseech
you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the
Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;
1:27 - 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;
1:29 - Whereunto I also labour, striving
according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
the work of God...
meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is
evil for that man who eateth with offence.
to follow Paul's pattern: Depart;
Despise; Destroy; Prayer; Tears; Grace; Truth; Mercy; Longsuffering; Patience;
Reprove; Rebuke; Get away (Avoid; withdraw from
such; not strive; neither give heed; purge; reject; be not partakers; mark;
note them; have no company; not to company with; put away from among yourselves;
cast off; have no fellowship); Deliver them unto Satan ...
You are not better and stronger than God / Paul, etc. so...
...don't try to be the tolerating passionate Christian forever... and watch
them destroy you, your family, the church, etc.
Try to reach folks, but don't strive - when you need to, not if or when
you want to... then move along or move yourself along!
Remember God in Proverbs 1:23-33
There is an end coming...
Not about an individual, but the Gentile nation
Jesus is not 'tarrying'
John 21:22 - Jesus
saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
follow thou me.
I Timothy 3:15 -
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave
thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the
pillar and ground of the truth.
3:16 - Nevertheless, whereto we have already
attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I
do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those
things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect,
be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal
even this unto you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let
us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
always, more to come - the KJB is a magnificent Book - it all just goes
on and on!
