- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
1:6 Being persuaded - The grounds of which persuasion are set down in the following verse. That he who hath begun a good work in you, will perfect it until the day of Christ - That he who having justified, hath begun to sanctify you, will carry on this work, till it issue in glory.
Php 1:6 Being confident of this very thing. So faithful have they been that he is confident that they will be faithful to the end. That he which hath begun a good work in you will perform [it]. God, who sent Paul to them with the gospel, began the good work. He will sustain them by his grace. Until the day of Jesus Christ. The day they are called to his presence.

Paul says , *preach the gospel without fearing.* Elohim is the boss in Jesus' work, as his followers we ought to follow his steps in anyways, and I like that.
Can God? God can.

The 'he'here is not God but 'anybody' from among the believers;otherwise God would not judge anyone for failing to accomplish what he started and the "if we don't give ups" in the bible,have no meanings since it's God who started it and must compplete it until jesus comes as some think.

It prepares us for the second coming of Christ. Jesus is the whole point of discussion in the book of philipians

God is faithful and does not do half jobs, all his work is absolutely perfect just like in the time of creation, at the end of it all-all was very good. Its really none of our business how He does it but we have to trust Him with all our heart

to me am saying that the book of philippians is encouraging us to trust God who can do everything

I think that Philippians 1:6 is majorly focusing on our faith as Christians. We need to focus solely on God,because He's the All Knowing God and He surely shall make everything that He promised to come to pass to them who believe in Him.

God is the true ruler of all that we see- he created this as well as all of us! It is not our place to question his devine wisdom?

In 1999, I was diagnosed with cancer. During this first few months, the Lord revealed to me this scripture. That He would finish what He had started!! Five months later the cancer was gone, and He had surely finished what He had started. Doing well today!!

Just as Christ came and fulfilled his purpose on earth. So is God giving us the assurance that whatever purpose he God has commissioned us to do, that He will help us to finish and fulfil it just as Christ did.

It would seem, according to the Word to God, that although life can become challenging in part having difficulties to face; because God Himself has begun a work in us, it will be performed to the fullest, despite any challenge or difficulty! What shall separate us from the Love of God?

Just went from home going to a service for one of the Church members of my father's Church Mt. Zion Baptist, and this is the completion of this verse, when Jesus calls us home to glory. Jesus prayed that we would be with him in heaven, and at salvation, He justifies us, separates us for His service, then He calls us home to glory. Thank God death is not the end, but a transformation to glory. Praise God when we all get to heaven, what a glorious day that will be.

God is the beginner and He ends whatever He started.

Let your salvation and faith in Christ be intact, then your trust in the Lord will now abound.

If you click on verse 6, you'll see that half the translations have the He capitalized and half don't. I'm sure each had their reasons for capitalization. It doesn't appear to change the meaning though.
