Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

Philippians 3:2.Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision.(Jeremiah 4:4), which worship God in the spirit.(?).and rejoice in Christ.Emmanuel and have no confidence in the flesh.
What are works of the flesh that have nothing to do with the spirit?.Galatians 5:17. Why? On the other hand, physical works done out of one's high consciousness spirituality, gains one a reward. What about the Old Testament's Mosaic Law that was with the people back then, was it not spiritual?
Philippians 3:4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinks that he has whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more.
Paul was extremely well qualified in his earlier life.
Philippians 3:5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

Philippians 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church.(before Paul's conversion he was just terrible); touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me.(things he gained by being as described above from verse 4 to here), those I counted loss for Christ.

The things that had importance to him in life, were, in comparison to the riches of the spiritual life and what it offered, dung (next verse).

Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Emmanuel my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Emmanuel.(what was this excellency of knowledge that Christ held?).my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and do count them but dung.(what were the things Paul went through?), that I may win Christ.(or 'to gain the character of Christ', meaning that he, Paul, would not let physical things hinder him from allowing Christ to work in him:.Ephesians 2:10.

The Creator expresses as us but only if we want that. And if so, what can we do?

Philippians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law.(Paul was very legalistic in his earlier years), but but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.
Because it was faith that brought it to you as a gift that you can accept, if you are of the mind to do so:.Romans 5:17.
Philippians 3:10 That I may know him and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.

Philippians 3:11 If by any means.(and he meant it!).I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Philippians 3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect.(*). But I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Emmanuel.
Paul is talking about himself living up to what he thought God wants of him. This was Paul's mind and he was dedicated to the life he believed he should live. It's interesting to compare Paul's life with the life of John:.John:13:23.
Philippians 3:13 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 in front of me,

Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of.God in Christ.Emmanuel.
Philippians 3:14 I press.(Paul diligently kept his eye on the goal and took steps to ensure he would make it; what steps?).toward the mark.(*).for the prize of the high calling.(?).of God in Christ Emmanuel.

About 'God in Christ'. Each of us have been awakened to be in Christ. What does that mean?

Paul is saying he was on the road, the purpose of his life now, which was now being in Christ. The purpose of the Creator is for us to share in all God is and this way has been opened to all by Christ:.John 14:6.

Paul was dedicated to this way.

Philippians 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded. And if in anything you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
Philippians 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect.(means you are aware of your true nature), be thus minded. And if in any thing you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
How and when? God is the same today as He has always been, so this applies also to how He telepathically.communicated with those in Old Testament times.
Philippians 3:16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me and mark.(or, take note of).them which walk.(Hebrews 11:13).so as you have us for an ensample.(old English way of spelling 'example').

Philippians 3:18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ.
They let their egos keep them from the spirituality Christ came to reveal. The more power in life a person of low consciousness has the worse it gets. Forget the low consciousness ego level of your life and head for the good life; how?
Philippians 3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly.(Titus 1:12) and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.
Why are they like that? see verse 18.
Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven, from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Emmanuel the Christ.
Philippians 3:20 For our conversation.(the word 'conversation' is an old English word for 'conduct' and 'citizenship'; on Earth we are said to be strangers and pilgrims, while awaiting a new country:.Hebrews 11:13-16).is in heaven.(heaven is the kingdom of the Creator in you, a being in and growing in attitude or in your spirit, that is, not in the low level consciousness of man, but rather, in the higher consciousness of God {so then, what does 'in Christ' mean?}, see verse 14 above and Ephesians 1:3 to see how we're in this thing called heaven while on Earth and emulate the conduct befitting of that calling to become a member of the family of the Creator:.2Peter 3:18; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

Note that our conduct is in this 'heaven' which is inside us (those of the God family) and that it is from here that we are to look for Christ's full consciousness to unfold. Many religious people are still waiting for His appearance in the physical.

Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile.(original for 'vile' is 'lower in state', that is, lower in frequencies as compared to high consciousness spirit energy, because all is energy frequencies; just means our human fleshly body).body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue.(original 'align with Him' and thus, is our purpose on Earth; and what is the 'Him' that we should be aligning with, if not what He is and He is love and love is a higher consciousness mind).all things unto himself..(why?.Colossians 1:18 "...that in all things he.(who's he?).might have the preeminence.")
Philippians 4:1 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord.(1Thessalonians 3:8), my dearly beloved.

Philippians 4:2 I beseech Euodias and beseech Syntyche.(women who helped Paul in the work he did at Philippi), that they be of the same mind in the Lord.

Philippians 4:3 And I intreat you also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also and with other my fellow labourers, whose names are in the book of life.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway. And again I say, Rejoice.

Philippians 4:5 Let your moderation.(Barnes Notes: original is 'restraint on the passions', 'general.soberness of living', 'being free from all excesses'; the word properly means that which is 'fit or suitably proper and reasonable' and then 'propriety', 'considerateness', 'deference', 'gentleness', 'mildness', 'patience'; they were to indulge in no excess of passion or dress or eating or drinking, instead governing their appetites, restraining their temper and to be examples of what was proper as being the best in men and women).be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful.(original is 'anxious', 'having anxiety', 'taking anxious thought for' or worried about what you are doing); many people are worried over their tomorrows and this takes them out of the present moment, wherein is the Creator and the Creator is high conscious principles including joy {Nehemiah 8:10 "...the joy of the Lord is your strength."}, so worry robs you of a joyful present).for nothing.(or, one could say, 'don't be anxious about anything, just turn it all over to God' who cares for you {1Peter 5:7} and deal with things, if they still come along {as there may be something in it for you to learn}, on the day they must be dealt with), but in every thing by prayer and supplication.(not vain prayer, but prayer {which is your requests, your heartfelt feeling for} regarding things that deeply matter to you with a desire for a response:.Matthew 6:8 "...your Father knows what things you have need of before you ask him."}, but no 'asky', no 'getty'; so ask, then let it go, knowing the universe knows how to best bring it to fruition).with thanksgiving.(always be in a grateful attitude {Philippians 2:13; Colossians 3:15; 1Thessalonians 5:18} because you are sure God is absolutely aware of and taking care of {in His own way}.all aspects of your life:.Ephesians 2:10).let your requests be made known unto God.

Comprised with.Barnes Notes: on not being careful for anything: There is a degree of thinking and industry about the things of this life which is proper:.1Timothy 5:8 "But if any provide not for his own and specially for those of his own house, he...is worse than an infidel." 2Thessalonians 3:10 "...if any would not work, neither should he eat."

It's saying to keep engaged in activities that provide benefit for yourself and others, not to just sit around most of the time. Instead, become an interesting person, alive, interested in the world. Sincere interest in another shows you care about them and it's a component of a loving attitude." Romans 12:11 "Not slothful in business..."

Matthew 6:25-34 shows us not to worry about money and not to be anxious about the supply of wants. But rather, learn how to get your wants, because God will never override your mindset and force them upon you. As He says in verse 25, the life is more than food and the body is more than just the clothes you put on. The Creator will take care of these. He has given you life. He created the body. Shall not he, who has conferred the greater blessing of eternal life, be willing to confer the less? Shall not He, who has formed the body out of His power and goodness, see that it is properly protected and clothed? He who has displayed so great goodness as to form the body and breathe into it the breath of life, will surely follow up the blessing and confer the smaller favor of providing that the body should be clothed and that life be preserved.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God which passes all understanding will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Emmanuel.
Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God which passes all understanding.(original is 'passes the mind', that is, passes to the soul) will keep your hearts.(in this 'thing' called Christ we are kept {Isaiah 53:5; Ephesians 2:14; Hebrews 13:5} as the higher consciousness individuals we came here to be and in Christ, we are kept from getting discouraged).and minds through.(original is."in"; that is, if in Christ, that is aligned with love; comprehend what 'Christ' fully means).Christ.Emmanuel..(?)

But for those living with limitations, there is no peace. Learn how to rise above.

Philippians 4:8 Finally brethren whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8 Finally brethren whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest.(original for word 'honest' is 'worthy of giving attention to'), whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely.(acceptable for lasting happiness, pleasing), whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue.(good actions forthcoming from what you may say).and if there be any praise.(things you can be thankful for and that contribute to happiness of self and of others), think on these things.

Proverbs 4:7; 4:20-22.

Keep your mind on the higher consciousness things, because these keep you in the frequencies of health and keep you aligned with the God of high consciousness. The dark energy invisible ones actually feed off of anything in mind you have that's negative. Stay away. Then they go away.

If you think high consciousness things, you'll talk and live high consciousness things and of course, the opposite is also true. Example, a fraudulent person suspects fraud in all he meets.

Philippians 4:9 Those things which you have both learned and received and heard and seen in me, do and the God of peace is then with you.

Philippians 4:10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me has flourished again, wherein you were also careful.(original for 'careful' is 'had it in mind', 'regarded'), but you lacked opportunity.

Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want, for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
Note Paul is saying that he's not speaking about any lack in his life. Paul always had his eyes on the prize and this became so ingrained in his subconscious, that this was the real Paul, happy, enthusiastic, forward looking, confidently being and forever believing. He kept his mind on the goal so much, that it was automatic with him.
Philippians 4:12 I know both how to be abased and I know how to abound. Every where and in all things I am instructed.(original for word 'instructed' is 'feel deep inside about', meaning a trusting God no matter what).both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ.(what is Christ?).which strengthens me.
Trust in God:.2Corinthians 3:4; Galatians 4:7; Ephesians 2:7; Philippians 4:7.
Philippians 4:15 Now you Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but you only.

Philippians 4:16 For even in Thessalonica you sent once and again unto my necessity.

Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Emmanuel.
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need.(drilling down past the surface words the translators used here, the original for word 'need' is 'to take for one's use' and how is that done?).according to his riches in glory.(in glory is in the realm of it in a person, the invisible realm; and His riches is everything there is and could be; unlimited potential).by.(original also 'in', 'through').Christ Emmanuel.(comprehend what Christ is).
Philippians 4:22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.
