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.

    Galatians 5:22-23 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. The fruits of the Spirit is good and healthy . Let's not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn.

    Hello Ray; It doesn't say anywhere, that Paul couldn't heal his friend, and certainly not that the Holy Spirit in him was "fading" or he couldn't speak in tongues any more. Epaphroditus was exhausted from working himself out! By answer to PRAYERS God raised him back up, and he recovered health. There's too many that don't carry their weight in the Lord's work! So others have unfairly heavy loads.
  • Ray321
    Now Apostle Paul couldn't heal with the gift of the Holy Ghost because Epaphroditus was very sick to death. Paul had the Holy Spirit inside him, but the gift of Holy Ghost must of faded away. Epaphroditus may have died with out getting heal. Food for thought and very interesting to know why Paul couldn't heal or speak in tongues later in his ministry. His epistles speak for its self.
