People's Bible Notes for Colossians 4:2


Col 4:2 Continue in prayer. Prayer ought to be regular, habitual. The Christian should every day have a season of prayer. See Lu 18:1 Ac 1:14 Eph 6:18. Watch in the same. Watch that you pray aright, in earnest, and ask for what you ought. With thanksgiving. Let thanks for mercies given ascend as you ask for new mercies.

    THE THINGS ABOVE WHERE JESUS IS SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD IS BOTH TRUE AND ETERNAL! THE THINGS ON EARTH IS A TEMPORAl PLACE CAUSE OF THE SIN THAT 'S DESTROYING THE WORLD! CAUSE OF SATAN AND HIS LIES THE WORLD HAS BEEN DECEIVE TO FOLLOW HIS WAYS AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO STAND FOREVER! DEATH IS IN THE WORLD CAUSE OF THE LIES OF SATAN WE BELIEVED FROM THE BEGINNING IN GENESIS CHAPTER 3! THAT 'S WHY AS BELIEVERS IN CHRIST WE MUST CONTINUE TO STUDY AND UNDERSTAND THE WORD OF GOD SO SATAN CAN NOT FILL US WITH LIES! WHEN JESUS WAS ON EARTH, AT HIS WEAKEST POINT CAUSE OF NOT EATING NOTHING FOR FORTY DAYS, SATAN CAME AT JESUS WITH TEMPORARY WORLDLY THINGS! CAUSE JESUS WAS FILLED WITH SO MUCH WORD AND TRUTH, SATAN HAD NO CHANCE TO TURN JESUS FROM THE TRUTH WITH HIS LIES! AS BELIEVERS WE MUST SET OUR MINDS ON THE ETERNAL THINGS ABOVE CAUSE WE KNOW THIS WORLD AS WE KNOW IT IS ONLY TEMPORARY! LORD HELP US TO FOCUS OUR MIND ON THE TRUTH SO WE WANT ALLOW THE LIES OF SATAN TO DESTROY OUR LIVES ANYMORE! CAUSE THE TRUTH WORD OF GOD WILL SET US FREE! "WHO THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED "! AMEN! GLORY BE TO GOD!!!
