Philippians 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,

Philippians 2:2 Fulfil you my joy, that you be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Philippians 2:2 Fulfil you my joy, that you be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord.(original Greek for word 'accord' is to be 'together with the feelings of others', 'be having empathy'; rapport; in unity with them; involved with others, seeing how you may be able to help in some way), of one mind..(one mind meaning all having the same love, like all living with and made to breath in this thing called air; one can choose not to love and one can choose not to breathe but why would you?)

Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

Philippians 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife.(original is 'partisanship').or vainglory.(everyone wants to be worshipped, to secure increasing attention from others; instead, consider circumstances of others to see how you yourself would feel if you were in their shoes) but in lowliness of mind.(humility).let each esteem other better than themselves.(what does this mean?)..(?)

If everyone followed what it means, we would not have the 'lord it over others' type of person who subjugates the kind, considerate and meek of the Earth.

Philippians 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others..(care about what others are concerned about enough to pray for what's on their mind)

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Emmanuel.

Philippians 2:5 Let.(original for 'let' is 'to be likeminded'; in other words, it's what one think's about; if thoughts are about religious legalism, that is, about do's & don'ts one should do to get himself or herself righteous, they can't be based upon rightousness by faith and he or she then is keeping themselves in sin, as it were:.Romans 14:23 "...whatsoever is not of faith is sin."; Galatians 3:12).this mind.(original for word 'mind' is 'understanding', so, let this mind or this thinking).be in you.(what mind was that?), which was also in Christ.Emmanuel.

Note that it's the same mind, a oneness; if it's the same mind, then are we equal at least in potential?; the same mind within Christ is an attribute which comprises.the mind of grace, an aspect of love; to let the same mind be in you means to just elevate it by your conscious mind knowing that it is so; here the stillness is important and so is taking one scripture in your mind for the day. And how does one bring his conscious mind to this point?

Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God.(and just what is God's form?), thought it not robbery to be equal with God.

Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery.(or, a crime, as something that one should not think or do).to be equal with God..(or you could say that 'being formed of the Creator, He understood equality with the Father':.John 10:34)

Philippians 2:7 But made himself of no reputation and took upon him the form of a servant and was made in the likeness of men.

Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man.(Hebrews 2:17), he.(Emmanuel), he humbled himself.(because of what man came here with, he is averse to humility).and became obedient unto death.(He chose death so all mankind would be out of sin and its eventual penalty, but He could have chosen for His own life to carry on, but where then would that have left us?.Matthew 26:53), even the death of the cross..(?)

Philippians 2:9 Wherefore God also has highly exalted him and given him a name which is above.(Ephesians 1:21).every name.(His name really means all that He is about).

Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Emmanuel every knee should bow.(means what He did was of such importance to help mankind), of things in heaven and things in earth and things under the earth;

Philippians 2:11 And that every tongue should confess.(original for 'should confess' is 'agree'; word 'should not there in original).that Emmanuel the Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence,.work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed.(original is 'open-minded willingness to learn), not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence,.work out your own.(be smart enough to see that when you are not getting what is possible from life, you need to drill down {1, 2} to find out why and where you seem to be going against life {2Corinthians 13:5), because the universe is all out to give you your heart's desires:.John 10:10).salvation.(salvation is something you need that will save you from anything against you:.1Peter 3:13).with fear and trembling.(or, carefully {we need to be careful what we come to believe before acting on it because we live our lives out of our beliefs}; and why 'fear and trembling'?..(?)

Philippians 2:13 For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Philippians 2:13 For it is God which works in you both to will.(original for 'to will' is 'will', 'would', 'have in mind').and to do of his.(word 'his' not in original).good pleasure.('good pleasure' means to work on the things that are good for yourself and others)..(from the original:."For it is God {the Great Infinite Intelligent Creative Energy}, this energy on and thorough you that is both desires of your mind and the energy to perform them for your satisfaction and the help and healing of all mankind.").(so, you work out your own salvation, but it is the Creator doing it, it is the Creator that brings you to Him; therefore you too are a creator)

Philippians 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings.

Philippians 2:14 Do all things without.(original can also mean 'apart from').murmurings.(grudging, complaining;.1Corinthians 10:10).and disputings.(to bring up all kinds of reasons why it should be done differently or not done at all, which really just puts off getting on with doing anything; doubting, arguing).

Philippians 2:15 That you may be blameless and harmless the sons of God without rebuke in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation among whom you shine as lights in the world.

Philippians 2:15 That you may be blameless and harmless.(original is 'pure', 'unmixed'; unmixed, that is, with the low consciousness ego level we all should be moving away from,.how?) the sons of God without rebuke.(blameless) in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation among whom you shine as lights in the world.

Philippians 2:16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Philippians 2:16 Holding forth.(keep spiritual things going in your life by giving time for them).the word.(or 'words' as the original has it).of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Philippians 2:17 Yea and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy and rejoice with you all.

Philippians 2:18 For the same cause also do you joy and rejoice with me.

Philippians 2:19 But I trust in the Lord Emmanuel to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.

Philippians 2:20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state.

many Christians of various degrees of spirituality were with Paul, but few cared for others as Timothy did, who appears to have the same genuine concern for others as the disciple John who was endeared by Christ

Philippians 2:21 For all seek their own, not the things which are Emmanuel the Christ's.

Philippians 2:22-24 But you know the proof of him, that as a son with the father he has served with me in the gospel. Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me. But I trust in the Lord that I also myself shall come shortly.

Philippians 2:25,26 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 you had heard that he had been sick.

Philippians 2:25,26 Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus.(a resident of the city of Philippi and member of the church raised up there; Paul was going to send this Epaphroditus right away and Timothy and perhaps even himself, sometime later), my brother and companion in labour and fellowsoldier, but your messenger.(he was to take Paul's letter {Philippians} that Paul wrote in Rome, to those in the recently raised up church in the city of Philippi).and he that ministered to my wants. For he longed after you all and was full of heaviness, because that you had heard that he had been sick.

Philippians 2:27 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.

Philippians 2:28-30 I sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when you see him again, you 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.
