People's Bible Notes for Philippians 3:10


Php 3:10 That I may know him. By enjoying his presence in the soul; an experimental knowledge. And the power of his resurrection. The resurrection demonstrated him to be the Son of God with power (Ro 1:4). The mighty power that worked in his resurrection works in the saints (1) in their resurrection from spiritual death to a new life (Col 2:13 Eph 1:19-23). It is therefore a present power. (2) It works also when they are lifted from the dead to eternal life. Consciousness of the victory over sin is the earnest of the ultimate triumph over death. And the fellowship of his sufferings. Christ's life is the plan of that of the saint. Like him, we take the cross, are crucified with him (Ro 6:6), are baptized into his death (Ro 6:3), are planted in the likeness of his death, and are risen with him (Col 3:1). In all these we look to the suffering Savior, and are conformable to his death. Not only do we take the "form" of his sufferings, but we sympathize with him. If the obedience is from the heart, there is a partaking of his sufferings.

Discussion for Philippians 3:10

  • Robin on Philippians 3:10
    Mystery Babylon in revelation 17 , most assume it's the RRC ,

    Then who are her harlot daughters ? They hold the same teachings perhaps , this is a huge religious system mixed with the world .

    We know the RRC excepts other religions and is ecumenical.

    Even Billy Graham was in association with them .

    The Nicene creed was the beginning of the RRC so how many hold to these doctrines ?

    If it's not the RRC then who is it ? It would need to be way in the future, because only RRC would fit the discription currently.

  • Adam L Grubb on Philippians 3:10
    I am suffering but didn't Jesus Christ, as precious Emmanuelle, suffer also? I am undergoing tribulations, but doesn't this mean those eyes of unquenchable fire are upon me? I die daily to my flesh while Jesus gave up the ghost upon the cross, Heavenly Father's only begotten literally died but then was resurrected! I will honor this love, I will respect this power and even offer up my undeserved life to that which is greater than any indeed.
  • Chris - in Reply on Philippians 3:10
    Those were very noble & compelling comments you shared Adam. May your spirit & mind be encouraged as you walk this Earth with temptations & tribulations encircling you. The Lord of Grace be your constant companion & strength, so that you may walk with head held high, with great joy in the abundance of grace given to you. Hebrews 4:16; James 4:6; Proverbs 3:34: All of Grace.
  • Alex Udumebraye Ogbon on Philippians 3:10
    Without knowing Christ and the power that resurrected him from the grave our Christianity is empty and totally vain. Every believer should not only emulate Christ but also trudge on the true path he has paved for us, no matter the travails assailing us but this is our cross and we have been pre-equipped afore-time to prevail. Shalom

    My prayer every day is,may the whole nation be save through the power of his resurrection amen
  • Rhonda Matthews on Philippians 3:10
    My Pastor just preach on knowing Him. Our goal as Christians should be to know him more, and more. Heaven is an aspect of knowing Him, a reward, but so not the goal. Heaven is a part of Him, but it is not Him.
  • Respect on Philippians 3:10
    who Christ is . the first aspect because for you to have felloship with him you need to first know his character. there is power to overcome evry situaton of life in his ressurection
  • Paul Ajibade I. on Philippians 3:10
    Knowing JESUS CHRIST and the power of His resurrection indicates that we stopped looking at the circumstances around us I.e the difficult situations and time that we pass through and start looking unto Him that we have, knowing His worth and with the understanding that we can do all things in Him and are above every principalities no matter how much or bad we are afflicted, being ready to endure in His suffering. Let 's ask ourselves this question that, why did Apostle Paul later made this conviction " what can separate him from the love of Christ...hunger, tribulation, strife, nakedness, sword etc? He answered and said nothing, which in turns means he had finally come to realize the power of His resurrection. This conviction is worthy of emulation to the Christians of this end time generation. I pray may God help us all IJN. Amen
