God’s Word Is Good..

Wonderful Study..Philippians 2: 5-11…

VS: 5&6 – 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… ( an act of robbery or a usurpation) ” to be equal”… ( the being on an equality)…

VS-7 BUT made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant… and was made in the likeness of men… ( emptied himself)…* it is assumed by some that when taking the form of a bondservant.. he not only divested himself of his Divine powers.. but became as his fellows.. and limited himself ( or was limited)… the knowledge and “mental status” of the age in which he lived…

He came only to accomplish the work the father gave him to do (John 17:4)… so he only spoke the words father gave him

His perfect obedience (as far as death)… was shown in that he did and said… only what was appointed him… to do and say.. not his own will… but the will of him that sent him (Hebrews 10: 5-7)….( note on Philippians verse 7)…” made himself nothing”…The..KENOSIS…” emptying “… of Christ during his Incarnation… does not mean that he surrendered any attributes of deity… but that he took on the limitations of humanity… ( bit of a mystery)…THIS… involved a veiling of his preincarnate Glory… John 17:5…

VS:8 And being found in fashion as a man… he humbled himself… and became obedient unto death… even the death of the cross..

* “That death… the shame of it which made it such a stumbling block for the Jews…

VS:9 Wherefore God also has highly exalted him…and given him a name… which is above every name…

VS:10 That at the name of Jesus… every knee should bow.. of things in heaven… and things in Earth…and things under the Earth…

VS: 11 And that every tongue should confess… that Jesus Christ is Lord… to the glory of God the Father…

Remembering my own salvation experience…” I can remember being at the Revival and after the preacher was done… God’s Holy Spirit witnessed to me… as I thought in my mind and heart… that if JESUS was God In the Flesh.. dying on a cross…. showing the most ultimate Act of selflessness…FOR ME… then that was the God… that I wanted to return my love to… later I learned the true meaning of his death on the cross…was that he OVERCAME DEATH…… everybody else is still in their graves…God gives out gifts… I also learned later that mine was evangelism…WITNESSING… my personal confession to God…is…”I’M NOT MUCH…BUT I’M AVAILABLE”…

* Some reference material from the great E.W. Bullinger…. and David Jeremiah…Kids Study Bible… also my testimony and comments…

God says… to seek him.. and you will find him…. I have been seeking him for 35 years…THANK YOU LORD…
