People's Bible Notes for Philippians 2:10


Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow. That name, by the exaltation, has become the name of the King of kings. It is supreme. Hence, "every knee" in all the universe bows to its majesty. Under the earth. In the underworld, hades, the abode of the dead.

    Vv . 14-16. Do all things without murmurings and disputing, that you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God without rebuke in the midst if a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world, holding forth the word of life. Amazing scripture that fits our time on this earth. Let not our love grow cold because iniquity abounds. Jesus is our strength!

    In noticing the name Epaphroditus, I remembered ALL the many people Paul named in Rom. 16. All those precious souls!! I hope to see ALL of them in the rapture. What a GLORIOUS day!!! To see them all; can you just imagine??
