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.

    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??
