Philippians 3:3.

Jun 4, 2013, 5:22 AM |

Finally, my Brethren, rejoice In The LORD. To write the same things is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you. Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the false circumcision; for we are The circumcision, who worship in The SPIRIT Of GOD And Glory In CHRIST JESUS and put no confidence in the flesh,... Philippians 3:1-3.


To understand all Scripture, and for all matters Pertaining to GOD, we first and foremost seek GOD in everything and for everything. Faith. It Is through The faith that is In CHRIST JESUS that all Wisdom, Knowledge, Learning, Understanding, and Discernment are Given, that all Strength, Power, and faith are Perfected And Established, and all this By The Empowering Of The HOLY SPIRIT. GOD HIMSELF Will Do this, we ourselves can not. Grace.


...You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being Manifested that you are a Letter Of CHRIST, cared for by us, Written not with ink, but With The SPIRIT Of The Living GOD, not on tablets of stone, but on tablets of human hearts. And such confidence we have through CHRIST toward GOD. Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as from ourselves, but our adequacy Is From GOD, WHO Also Made us adequate servants Of A New Covenant, not Of The Letter ( The Old Covenant; The Law ), but Of The SPIRIT; for The Letter kills ( Romans 3:19-20 ), but The SPIRIT Gives Life. But if the ministry of death, in Letters Engraved on stones, came with Glory, so that the sons of Israel could not look intently at the face of Moses because of the Glory on his face, fading as it was, how shall The Ministry Of The SPIRIT fail to be with even More Glory? For if the ministry of condemnation has Glory, much more does the Ministry Of Righteousness Abound In Glory ( Romans 1:16-17, Romans 3:31 ). For indeed what had Glory, in this case has no Glory on account Of The Glory That Surpasses. For if that which fades away was with Glory, much more That Which Remains In Glory.


Having therefore such A Hope, we use great boldness in speech, and not as Moses, who used to put a veil over his face that the sons of Israel might not look intently at the end of what was fading away. But their minds were hardened; for until this very day at the reading of The Old Covenant the same veil remains unlifted, because it is removed In CHRIST. But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their heart; but whenever a man turns to The LORD, the veil is Taken Away. Now The LORD Is The SPIRIT; and where The SPIRIT Of The LORD Is, Is Liberty. But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror The Glory Of The LORD, are being Transformed into The Same Image from Glory To Glory, just As From The LORD, The SPIRIT. 2 Corinthians 3:2-18.


...for we are The circumcision, who worship In The SPIRIT Of GOD and Glory In CHRIST JESUS and put no confidence in the flesh,... Philippians 3:3.


In CHRIST JESUS our LORD in Truth means we are as those being of,


' The circumcision made without hands in the removal of the body of the flesh by The circumcision Of CHRIST, who worship in Spirit And Truth and Glory In CHRIST JESUS; meaning, who vaunt, that is, praise, display boastfully, rejoicing in CHRIST JESUS, in no way whatsoever trusting in nor yielding to the flesh,' ' Philippians 3:3 '.


When Paul writes the verse we know as Philippians 3:3, of those to whom he is refering when he says, ' for we are', are those who are not walking according to the flesh, but According To The SPIRIT.


Nothing short of it is meant, nor is it to be construde as meaning anything else nor anything less than this. But this is written being of those who, By Grace through The faith no longer are living the rest of the time in the flesh for the lusts of the men, but for The Will Of GOD, and all being to HIS Praise And Glory. Just as Paul himself could say that he was walking, By Grace through faith, and without hypocrisy;


"I have been crucified with CHRIST; and it is no longer i who live, but CHRIST Lives in me; and the life which i now live in the flesh i live by faith in The SON Of GOD, WHO Loved me, and Delivered HIMSELF Up For me." Galatians 2:20.


For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are According To The SPIRIT, The Things Of The SPIRIT. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on The SPIRIT Is Life And Peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward GOD; for it does not subject itself to The Law Of GOD, for it is not even able to do so; and those who are in the flesh cannot please GOD. However, you are not in the flesh but in The SPIRIT, if indeed The SPIRIT Of GOD Dwells in you. But if anyone does not have The Spirit Of CHRIST ( 1 Corinthians 2:16 ), he does not belong to HIM. Romans 8:5-10.


For them that have concerns in a manner corresponding to, pertaining to the body ( flesh ), as opposed to soul and spirit, have only the sentiments and opinions of the body ( flesh ) in all their person, ( and a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough ),


But i say, walk By The SPIRIT, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against The SPIRIT, and The SPIRIT Against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are Led By The SPIRIT, you are not under The Law. Now the deeds of the flesh are evident ( and we will be known by our fruits; Matthew 7, Mark 7:14-23 ), which are: immorality, impurity ( physical or moral uncleanness ), sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities ( hate; Matthew 5:21-48 ), strife, jealousy, out-bursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which i forewarn you just as i have forewarned you that those who practice ( do ) such things shall not Inherit The Kingdom Of GOD. Galatians 5:19-21.


but those who seek the things Pertaining to GOD; who walk According To The SPIRIT, The Things Of The SPIRIT,


But The Fruit Of The SPIRIT Is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control; against such things there is no Law. Now those who belong to CHRIST JESUS have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live By The SPIRIT, let us also walk By The SPIRIT. Galatians 5:22-25.


Our measure is JESUS CHRIST. By JESUS CHRIST we are to examine ourselves, to test ourselves to see if we are in The faith, to see if we fail the test. We Glory in CHRIST JESUS,


the Mystery Which has been Hidden from the past ages and generations; but has now been Manifested To HIS Saints, To whom GOD Willed to Make Known What Is The Riches Of The Glory Of This Mystery among the Gentiles, Which Is CHRIST In you, The Hope Of Glory. And we proclaim HIM, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all Wisdom, that we may present every man complete In CHRIST. And for this purpose also i labour, striving according to HIS Power, Which Mightily Works within me... Colossians 1:26-29.


...See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principals of the world, rather than according to CHRIST. For In HIM All The Fulness Of Deity Dwells in bodily form, and In HIM you have been Made Complete, and HE Is The Head Over All Rule And Authority; and In HIM you were also Circumcised With A Circumcision Made without hands, in the Removal of the body of the flesh By The Circumcision Of CHRIST; having been buried with HIM In Baptism, In Which you were also Raised Up With HIM Through faith In The Working Of GOD, WHO Raised HIM From the dead... Colossians 2:8-12.


...Or do you not know that all of us who have been Baptized Into CHRIST JESUS Have Been Baptized Into HIS Death? Therefore we have been buried With HIM Through Baptism Into death, in order that as CHRIST Was Raised From the dead Through The Glory Of The FATHER, so we too might walk in Newness Of Life. For if we have become United With HIM In The Likeness Of HIS Death, certainly we shall be also Of HIS Resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with HIM, that our body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is Freed from sin. Now if we have died With CHRIST, we believe that we shall also Live With HIM, knowing that CHRIST, having Been Raised From the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over HIM. For the death that HE Died, HE Died to sin, Once For All; but The Life that HE Lives, HE Lives To GOD. Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive To GOD In CHRIST JESUS. Romans 6:3-11.


Even so, walk in The Same Manner As HE Walked.


Therefore, since CHRIST Has Suffered In The Flesh ( death ), arm yourselves also with the same purpose ( dying to the flesh ), because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for The Will Of GOD. 1 Peter 4:1-2.


...JESUS therefore was Saying To those Jews who had believed HIM, "If you abide In MY Word, then you are Truly Disciples Of MINE; and you shall know The Truth, and The Truth Shall Make you Free." John 8:31-32


Then JESUS Said To HIS Disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after ME, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow ME. "For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for MY sake shall Find It. "For what will a man be profited, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? "For The SON Of Man Is Going To Come In The Glory Of HIS FATHER With HIS angels; and Will Then Recompense every man according to his deeds. "Truly, truly, I Say To you, there are some of those who are standing here who shall not taste death until they see The SON Of Man Coming In HIS Kingdom." Matthew 16:24-28.


Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body that you should obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to GOD as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of Righteousness to GOD. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under Law, but Under Grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under Law but Under Grace? May it never be! Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in Righteousness?... Romans 6:12-16.


..."But An Hour Is Coming, And Now Is, when the true worshipers shall worship The FATHER in Spirit And Truth; for such people The FATHER Seeks to be HIS worshipers. "GOD Is SPIRIT, and those who worship HIM must worship in Spirit And Truth." John 4:23-24.


My soul, wait in silence for GOD only, For my Hope Is From HIM. HE Only Is my ROCK And my Salvation, my Stronghold; i shall not be shaken. On GOD my Salvation And my Glory Rest; The ROCK Of my Strength, my Refuge Is In GOD. Trust in HIM at all times, O people; pour out your heart before HIM; GOD Is A Refuge For us. Psalm 62:5-8.


...for we are The circumcision, who worship In The SPIRIT Of GOD and Glory In CHRIST JESUS and put no confidence in the flesh,... Philippians 3:3.


Now The GOD Of Peace, WHO Brought Up from the dead The Great SHEPHERD Of The sheep Through The Blood Of The Eternal Covenant, JESUS our LORD, Equip you in every good thing to do HIS Will, Working in us That Which Is Pleasing In HIS Sight, Through JESUS CHRIST, To WHOM Be The Glory Forever And Ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21.
