The Book of Philippians 1-1:

June 25, 2007 22:20 pm PowerPoint By: Deacon Jerome Smith SR www.takeuptheircross.org The Book of Philippians 1-1 Answer each question in you’re on words just as I have . What is your thought to Paul’s aims for this letter were ? After closer study, how would you now explain his purposes ? Well, Paul starts by writing a thank-you note to the believers at Philippi for their help in his hour of need, and he then uses the occasion to send along-some instruction on Christian unity. With Christ as your model of humility and service, you can enjoy a, oneness of purpose, attitude, goal, and labor a truth which Paul himself illustrates from his own life, and one the Philippians desperately needed to hear.

The Book of Philippians 1-2:

June 25, 2007 22:20 pm PowerPoint By: Deacon Jerome Smith SR www.takeuptheircross.org The Book of Philippians 1-2 What are the most important lessons you learned from Philippians about the following topics ? Partnership in Christ : Meaning of the word Exalt: To exalt someone means to praise or raise in rank, to give honor, to elevate, to glorify, to acknowledge. The book of Philippians teaches us that Paul did all these things during his time of afflictions, during a time when he himself was facing a time of pain and distress and persecution. Philippians 2:3 “ Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteems other better than themselves .” This verse means to regard highly or favorably; regard with respect or admiration: I esteem him for his honesty. In doing this we exalt one another.

The Book of Philippians 1-3:

The Book of Philippians 1-3 To partnership with Christ, one must be of the same Christ like mind just as Paul was. In Paul’s afflictions he Exalt the Lord. We should follow Paul’s example doing our own time of afflictions with boldness, having faith and knowing that Christ will be magnified in our body. There will come a time now in the present and for sure in the near future when all Christians will need strong faith in Christ, which will be needed for all Christians to strive against and overcome the era of the pale horse, which is the age of the Antichrist to come as described in Revelation 6:7-8v . The era of the pale horse is a vision of death on a pale horse. “ And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see .” “ And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sward, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth .” June 25, 2007 22:20 pm PowerPoint By: Deacon Jerome Smith SR www.takeuptheircross.org

The Book of Philippians 1-4:

June 25, 2007 22:20 pm PowerPoint By: Deacon Jerome Smith SR www.takeuptheircross.org The Book of Philippians 1-4 Joy : We have joy in Christ Jesus; only in Christ is real unity and joy possible. Only in Christ Jesus will we be able to escape the horror that will come up on the face of this earth in the near future. Knowing that all Christians will be with Christ gives us all great joy and hope. Circumstances and suffering : I learned that we should rejoice in the spreading of the gospel in spite of our situation and circumstances; continue to give thanks to our Lord and Savior, for the good times as well as the bad times. In Christ : In reading the book of Philippians, Paul’s appeal to have the peace of Christ. In 4 th chapter Paul urges the Philippians to have peace with the brethren by living a life-style of unity, prayerful dependence, and holiness; all Christians should have this kind of life-style. Peace with the Brethren, Peace with the Lord, Peace with all circumstances. The Christian mind : The Christians mind should be Christ like, thanksgiving in our prayer always, not proud but humble, having complete faith in God, exhort the Lord at all times.

The Book of Philippians 1-5:

June 25, 2007 22:20 pm PowerPoint By: Deacon Jerome Smith SR www.takeuptheircross.org The Book of Philippians 1-5 Knowledge and knowing : Paul appeal to have the knowledge of Christ in chapter 3: Paul warns against confidence in the flesh. The bible teaches us that we should not lean on our own understanding but to seek God for all things including knowledge and God’s righteousness. Paul’s teaches here in this chapter that true righteousness is received through faith in Jesus Christ not by mechanical obedience to any law in having our own righteousness. Paul express this in 3:8 v , he also warns against living for flesh in 3:17-21 v Courage and confidence : Paul preached the gospel of Jesus Christ with boldness as he had complete confidence in the Word of God and not confidence in the flesh. I my self seek this same courage and confidence in faith through Jesus.

The Book of Philippians 1-6:

June 25, 2007 22:20 pm PowerPoint By: Deacon Jerome Smith SR www.takeuptheircross.org The Book of Philippians 1-6 God at work in us : This take’s me to Chapter 2:5 v “ Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus ”. I guest we should ask our self this question, do other people see Christ me? When you are asked to do something, do you do it without murmuring and disputing, grumbling or arguing, is this kind behavior Christ like? Paul stated in this chapter that all Christians should be blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as light in the world. I truly believe that just seeing Jesus in you can save a person. Others : Thank God for his work in his creation, and greet every saint in Christ Jesus.

The Book of Philippians 1-7:

If so, how have you changed? I fill that I have more encouragement in faith and more wisdom form this study. I have gained more knowledge about not having confidence in the flesh, because it’s easy sometime to lean on your own understanding. If you continue to get wrapped up in your own understanding you will also get wrapped up in your own self-righteousness. What topic (or topics) from Philippians continues to challenge you personally, and what do you plan to do about it? Chapters 2,3 & 4 were a challenge to me personally for as gaining more knowledge from this study. Warning against confidence in the flesh, and warning against living for the flesh, Peace with the brethren, peace with the Lord, peace in all circumstances . I plan to continue to seek God and study his Word.
