Wesley's Notes for Philippians 2:9


2:9 Wherefore - Because of his voluntary humiliation and obedience. He humbled himself; but God hath exalted him - So recompensing his humiliation. And hath given him - So recompensing his emptying himself. A name which is above every name - Dignity and majesty superior to every creature.


People's Bible Notes for Philippians 2:9


Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him. His wonderful humility had been shown, but it is the law of the universe that he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. Therefore God lifted him up from the grave to the heavens, gave all power into his hands (Mt 28:18), and gave him a name which is above every name. The idea is an authority, a position, above that of all intelligences. This exaltation made the humble name, Jesus, a name above every name.

    my Bible say idle mind is the devil's workshop keep our minds on the world and the promises of God everything is going to be alright

    V.2 - being likeminded, of one accord, of one mind. Paul's speaking to ALL the churches, even the ones of today. Have you ever really thought about how that one accord, one mind can be brought about in even just one church with the different ethnic, thought patterns, etc.? It can only be done through prayer AND fasting, with tears of supplication to God. He's not coming for a church-scattered.
  • Irene123
