Being Confident of this…very thing… that God that began the good work, IN YOU, will continue until… that work comes into the fullness of Christ Jesus!
Here is our reference:
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
~ Philippians 1:6 ~
Notice where this good work of God works. Within us!
How long will God perform this good work? Until Jesus Christ is revealed in us.
Know ye, not ye are the temple of the Holy Ghost! SAY WHAAATTT?
What? Know ye not that your body (the good work) is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1 Corinthians 6:19
The Good Work God will perform…Until Christ be formed IN YOU! The apostle travails in the birth of Jesus until Christ is formed within us!
My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you…
~ Galatians 4:19 ~
And again we find another reference that Jesus Christ is IN YOU!
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
~ 2 Corinthians 13:5 ~
Apostle Paul in reference that God was to reveal his Son in him.
To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the nations; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
~ Galatians 1:16 ~
Yes, it is time for us to be confident of this truth, that the Lord of heaven that began a God work IN YOU, will continue…until…the light of the Word in you, is fully understood. Until the Spirit brings your Word forth until the parable of the man (both in good and in evil), is fully understood. This is what allows us to walk in the (light of) the spirit so that we no longer have to walk (discern) by the desires of our own mind and understanding (recall this is called the lust-of-the-flesh).
It takes the Spirit (of Truth) to bring each of us to the DAY OF JESUS CHRIST. It’s the Spirit who will reveal this to you, directly. Right? Of course. Its the Spirit that quickeneth…awakes that soul (understanding) that is asleep.
Matthew chapter 16: verses 13-17
13. When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
14. And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
15. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16. And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
~ John 6:62, 63 ~
So, how does this look in the application? What is the progression of this good work?
Where do we first begin so as that we can fully agree with apostle Paul understanding?
First, make the decision today in believing on Jesus As the scripture has said (this thesis is posted under our ATA tab).
Secondly, make a commitment to be involved in a face-to-face Bible study groups’ table. One that the teacher or instructor will allow open discussions and time for questions and answers. Scripture reference of this participation is called ‘breaking of bread’.
And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
~ Luke 24:35 ~
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
~ Acts 2:42 ~
Be confident, that God that began the good work, IN YOU, will continue until that godly work comes into the fullness of Christ Jesus!
Amen and Amen
All the promises of God are TRUE!
