    Jude 23: Philemon 1:3


    Jude 23 King James Version (KJV)
    23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

    Jude 23 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

    23 and save others by snatching them from the fire, and have mercy on others with fear, hating even the tunic stained by the flesh.

    These are my thoughts.
    Part of our duty as Christians is to help others be saved for hell by helping them find God’s mercy and grace. 

    Philemon 3 King James Version (KJV)

    Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


    Philemon 3 New Matthew Bible (NMB)


    Grace be with you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

    We only have true grace thru receiving Jesus as our Savior; grace can be received because of Jesus dying on the cross. Peace comes from having a right standing with the Lord which only comes by having God’s grace and giving Him control of our life by having Him be our Lord.

    Mark 6:9; Job 14:3-5


    Mark 6:9 King James Version (KJV)

    But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.

    Mark 6:9 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    It’s all right to wear sandals, but don’t take along a change of clothes.


    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts.

    We use what we need but we are to rely on the Lord and not ourselves. The disciples we only asked to do this at this time it wasn’t apart of the great commission given later. 

    Job 14:3-5 King James Version (KJV)

    And doth thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee?

    Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.

    Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;



    Job 14:3-5 Good News Translation (GNT)


    Will you even look at me, God,
     or put me on trial and judge me?
    Nothing clean can ever come
     from anything as unclean as human beings.
    The length of our lives is decided beforehand—
     the number of months we will live.
    You have settled it, and it can't be changed.


    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts, please share yours.


    3 God is to be our judge but thru Christ we are redeemed from sin. We all deserve judgment but as Christians we have Christ and have mercy and grace. Job had some pride because he lived better then others and because he had a relationship with God, he thought he was good enough but only by faith and His love are we saved.


    4 We are sinful and unclean but only thru Jesus and the Spirit living in us can we be saved and good. The only thing good in us as believers is the Holy Spirit and by Him we can do good and be good, without the Spirit and without Jesus we don’t have a good standing before the Father and cant be good.


    5 God has already determined our life and already has both a will for us and knows what we will actually do. Some things we cant change because they are God’s will but many things we can fight but we should submit to His will.

    Jude 22; Philemon 1:1-2


    Jude 22 King James Version (KJV)
    22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

    Jude 22 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

    22 And have mercy on those who doubt,

    These are my thoughts.
    We show try to bring them to greater faith but not be harsh with them because this is only discouragement. 

    Philemon 1-2 King James Version (KJV)

    Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,

    And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church in thy house:



    Philemon 1-2 New Matthew Bible (NMB)


    Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ, and brother Timothy.

    To Philemon the beloved and our helper, and to the beloved Apphia, and to Archippus our fellow-soldier, and to the congregation of your house.

    1 Timothy wasn’t Paul’s actually brother but they had such a close fellowship with each other. Paul was a bond slave for Jesus but now he was a prisoner because of sharing Jesus. Paul had rights that allowed him to write letter as a Roman citizen while he was a prisoner. Paul helped Timothy to the faith and a close friendship/ mentorship started out of that. Philemon was helping not just Paul but Timothy and the work of the Lord because of him helping them.


    2 Apphia was from Colossae and was a believer there and may have been closely related to Philemon. Archippus was a minister at Colossae. It may be likely that the church used Philemon’s house to meet.

    Mark 6:8; Job 14:1-2


    Mark 6:8 King James Version (KJV)
    8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:

    Mark 6:8 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    8 He told them, “You may take along a walking stick. But don’t carry food or a traveling bag or any money.

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

    These are my thoughts.
    This verse was for the disciples as they went out then, they weren’t commanded to do this in this way when the great commission is given what we can get out of it is what He was teaching them by saying and having them do this, we are to rely on Him to meet our needs. 

    Job 14:1-2 King James Version (KJV)
    14 Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.
    2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.

    Job 14:1-2 Good News Translation (GNT)

    14 We are all born weak and helpless.
        All lead the same short, troubled life.
    2 We grow and wither as quickly as flowers;
        we disappear like shadows.

    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    1 We need to realize we are weak and helpless and need to the Lord because thru Him we can become strong and He becomes are helper, with Him we can get thru anything. All hope are born die, Elijah and Enoch were the only exceptions. Life isn’t easy some people do face more trouble then others though.

    2 Our life is short but what do we do with it, do we let the Lord use our short time for Hi glory?

    Mark 6:7; Job 13:26-28


    Mark 6:7 King James Version (KJV)
    7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

    Mark 6:7 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    7 Then he called together his twelve apostles and sent them out two by two with power over evil spirits.

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

    These are my thoughts.
    We have power as believers thru the Holy Spirit but we are stronger together. 

    Job 13:26-28 King James Version (KJV)
    26 For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.
    27 Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet.
    28 And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten.

    Job 13:26-28 Good News Translation (GNT)

    26 You bring bitter charges against me,
        even for what I did when I was young.
    27 You bind chains on my feet;
        you watch every step I take,
        and even examine my footprints.
    28 As a result, I crumble like rotten wood,
        like a moth-eaten coat.

    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    26 People may throw up our past, we as believers all did things that now shame us, we may still fall into ways that shame us because we should be shamed by our sin because we should want to be holy. It is never biblically to run down believers by their past, it is never biblical to run down believers who are striving for the Lord and trying to grow closer and be more like Him. 

    27 Job is saying this about God, Job’s view of God is distorted because of his circumstances often times our circumstances can distort how we view God but God stays the same. Sin is what binds us, God does sometimes keep us from such things but it is for our good. God knows not only where we have been and are but where we are going and most important where He wants to lead us.

    28 Job was weak and broken, we sometimes get to this point and it’s the point we can only look to the Lord to build us up. Job was looking to the Lord but wasn’t ready yet for blessing, our hearts need to change before blessing is poured out.
