Colossians 2

For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;

That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.

For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

20 Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,

21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;

22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

  1. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

  2. 18-19 NLT “Don’t let anyone condemn you by insisting on pious self-denial or the worship of angels, saying they have had visions about these things. Their sinful minds have made them proud, and they are not connected to Christ, the head of the body. For he holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it.

    JESUS is the head of the church and believers are the body. As the head HE provides all our needs as HE leads and guides us for HIS honor and glory.

  3. 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    The old covenant of sacrifices and ordinances have been nailed to the cross. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Following the teachings of Jesus rather than religious traditions will help us to stay on the right path.

  4. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
    Colossians 2:7

    No matter what we decide in life wife, it is going to be what anchors us into into the ground for how ever long it lasts. That is why we must be intentional about what what we plant and even the ground that we planted in, because there is only one true seed That we will Last forever with and it will only be Christ that will Keep us anchored When the storms of life Come after us and it will only be Christ That is there for us when everything else in life fails.

  5. 12. For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.

    13. You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. NLT

    Until we die out to sin, and get buried and resurrected in Jesus name, we are never really alive.

  6. Colossians 2:7,13-14
    [7]Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

    Stay rooted in Christ and the Church. They are our firm foundation.

    [13]You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins.
    [14]He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.

    Forgiven
    Song by David Crowder

    I’m the one who held the nail
    It was cold between my fingertips
    I’ve hidden in the garden
    I’ve denied You with my very lips
    God, I fall down to my knees
    With a hammer in my hand
    You look at me, arms open
    Forgiven, forgiven
    Child there is freedom from all of it
    Say goodbye to every sin
    You are forgiven
    I’ve done things I wish I hadn’t done
    I’ve seen things I wish I hadn’t seen
    Just the thought of Your amazing grace
    And I cry, “Jesus, forgive me!”
    God, I fall down to my knees
    With a hammer in my hand
    You look at me, arms open
    Forgiven, forgiven
    Child there is freedom from all of it
    Say goodbye to every sin
    You are forgiven
    I could’ve been six feet under
    I could’ve been lost forever
    Yeah I should be in that fire
    But now there’s fire inside of me
    Here I am a dead man walking
    No grave gonna hold God’s people
    All the weight of all our evil
    Lifted away forever free
    Who could believe, who could believe?
    Forgiven, forgiven
    You love me even when I don’t deserve it
    Forgiven, I’m Forgiven
    Jesus Your blood makes me innocent
    So I will say goodbye to every sin
    I am forgiven
    I am forgiven

  7. ‘“Don’t handle! Don’t taste! Don’t touch!”? You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. ‘

    Colossians 2:13-14,21
    Someone will be baptized today in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins today. Someone will receive the gift of the holy ghost and speak in other tongues as the spirit gives the utterance. Jesus will perform the miraculous we just gotta bring the people lets do it in Jesus name today!

  8. The Living Bible
    vs:9-10
    For in Christ there is all of God in a human body, so you have everything when you have Christ, and you are filled with God through your union with Christ. He is the highest Ruler, with authority over every other power.

    Earlier too Paul spoke of Christ possessing the fullness of God. In this chapter Paul means simply that all God can be and is for us is summed up in Jesus. We don’t need a “better way” because relationship with Jesus provides us with all of God.

  9. Verses 6-7 AMP “Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in [union with] Him [reflecting His character in the things you do and say—living lives that lead others away from sin], having been deeply rooted [in Him] and now being continually built up in Him and [becoming increasingly more] established [e]in your faith, just as you were taught, and overflowing in it with gratitude.” The next verse 8 warns against being fooled, deceived or led away and making sure no predator make you his prey. Heed the warnings, be strong and be GREATER!

  10. “fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”
    ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:2‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    We are to be like Jesus. A light that shines in darkness. How will we win and bring our city unto the LORD JESUS if we are behaving and treating each other as the ways of the world speaks and acts? How will people coming in through those doors feel the love of Jesus Christ?
    We know that we may not all get along. But when we are able to put our agenda, feelings,and attitude aside. Then we can know that GOD can do miracles,signs, and wonders in our region as HE heals our land.
    Revival NOW!

    “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭13:34-35‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  11. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
    Colossians 2:7 NLT

    Let your roots grow down into Him and let your lives be built on Him – we have to LET God do what He wants in our lives. We have to lay down our own desires and ways. God has His own plan and if we let Him, it will come to pass greater than anything we could have ever imagined!

  12. Colossians 2: 6-7
    As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him.
    7) Rooted and build up in him and stablished in the faith,as ye has been taught,abounding therein with Thanksgiving.
    Paul warned them to beware of the other philosophy, deceit, and the traditions of men- thing that are not of Christ.
    There is nothing better than having a relationship with Jesus.

  13. 4I am telling you this so no one will deceive you with well-crafted arguments. 5For though I am far away from you, my heart is with you. And I rejoice that you are living as you should and that your faith in Christ is strong.

    Don’t let friends, relatives or coworkers deceive you with the Word. Many will interpret the Word to fill the point of view. Read the Word, and it will guide you. Rejoice knowing God is with with at all times.

  14. 1 For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;

    2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

    3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

    There’s not a situation that we face that we cannot find the answer to in the word of God, we just must seek for it. Wisdom and knowledge come to those who desire because they won’t be satisfied with just anything, but they will search the Word until they know they have found its truth.

    Proverbs 1:7
    The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

  15. If you have died with Christ to the world’s way of doing things, why do you let others tell you how to live? It’s as though you were still under the world’s influence.
    Colossians 2:20 GW

    We are submitted to a new Master! The world can have its comments and opinions but it is God Alone that is our Counselor, Guide and Ultimately our Judge.

  16. Colossians 2:14 (NLT)
    “He cancelled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.”

    1 Peter 2:24a tells us, “He personally carried our sins in His body on the Cross…”
    When JESUS Was Nailed To The Cross, He was carrying my/our sins.
    So THANKFUL today that when JESUS Was Nailed To and Died On The Cross for me, my sins (the record of the charges against me) were cancelled – blotted out -wiped away.
    Thank You JESUS!!
    When HE WAS ON THE CROSS – I WAS ON HIS MIND!

  17. GREATER
    LOVE FOR TRUTH

    4 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
    5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.
    6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
    7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
    8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
    9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
    10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

    JESUS is the WAY, TRUTH and LIFE. HE established order in the Old Testament through Israel and restablished Spiritual order in the New Testament through the church.

    JESUS established a SHEPHERD over HIS sheep, called a Pastor or an under-shepherd, who serves at the call and will of GOD not people. JESUS gives sheep (people) a SHEPHERD to feed, lead and protect from wolves or dangerous doctrines, decisions, directions or dialogue.

    The apostle warns here that our FAITH should be in JESUS and we should not listen to every voice, but to be complete in JESUS. Meaning that we are not always looking for the “next move” or “next opportunity” but we are COMPLETE in HIM. Mans ways are not always GODs ways and we have a SHEPHERD to guide us in this. The SHEPERDS/PASTORS voice should be the LOUDEST and most influential voice in our lives. JESUS is the ONE that placed us under their care and we would be foolish and unwise to break that JESUS established relationship and not expect spiritual peril.

    JESUS us the FULLNESS of GOD and has ALL authority in Heaven and Earth and we are complete in HIM. HE makes no mistakes. We must have FAITH in Christ JESUS and HIS Kingdom system to avoid being spoiled by other men and their spoiling words.

    i am loved
    hallelujah!!!
    blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus.
    thank you Lord for your love, thank you Jesus for salvation.
    thank you Lord for your MERCY.

  20. 5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.

    We are one in Christ. The enemy may try to split us up, but our God is greater. Because of his greatness, we can do great things. There is no god like our God.

  21. The Kingdom of God is Greater
    This chapter is trying to get the Gentiles to understand they are not under the Jewish customs and to not allow anyone judge them. We are encouraged to love folk and help them get rooted into Jesus. Things have definitely changed a lot from the days of Paul, but there are other divisions that we must be aware of

  22. 6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
    7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
    8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

    Stay in the apostolic church and with what you have learned regarding the new birth of water and Spirit because there are many half truths and philosophies all around us. Don’t remove the ancient landmarks of our forefathers in the apostolic doctrine.

  23. There were teachers in Colosi who were teaching heresy. Paul warned the Colossians against these false teachings. These teachers said that God couldn’t touch anything made out of material elements and God had to enlist the help of other mediators. God didn’t need anyone else. Jesus is the mediator, and we are complete in him.

  24. 3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

    The only way we will have access to this wisdom and knowledge is by having a relationship with JESUS

  25. Colossians 2

    6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him.

    Follow the word of the Lord daily. Read God’s word, go to our POFW church. It sounds simple, but avoid the worldly ways. The enemy is constantly trying win you over, but Jesus is stronger.
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  26. 23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

    We have to take control of our flesh this is why we fast to take control of our flesh if temptation comes we can raisiny deny it with fasting

  27. That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

    Love is so important. Love a key ingredient in relationships. Love knites us tohether into one. Lord help me love your people as you do so that together we can fulfill your call

  28. Colossians 2:6,7 As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with Thanksgiving.

    Relationship with Jesus, Greater and greater every day.

    I Thessalonians 4:1 Furthermore then we beseech you brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how you ought to walk and to please God, so you would abound more and more.

  29. 6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
    7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
    8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

    2 things, you know someone is walking in Jesus by:
    they are rooted and built up in Him.
    They are stablished in faith
    They are abounding in thanksgiving.

    Always be careful not to allow someone to convince you of vain traditions. While some traditions are ok, the vain ones waste time, and keep you from Jesus…

  30. “And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”
    ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    The more you invest into your relationship with Christ the better it will be. You can expect the deliverance you received when you were first reborn to carry you the rest of your life. Each day you should be drawing closer and closer to him and killing this flesh. There will never come a time where you have too much in you to where you can’t grow anymore. Plants don’t grow without water: they have to be fed and nourished. We are like plants and in order to grow we have to be fed and nourished not just once but daily. This is why the Bible reading and prayer and fasting is important. Daily growth!!

  31. 23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.

    To lay down and to not satisfy is a sacrifice yet rewarding.

  32. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

    9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

    If the warming is there it’s becuase it is totally possible for this to happen. We need to learn and know the truth so well that no deception que lead away hearts away from the truth.

  33. 11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
    12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
    13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
    14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
    15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
    16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    We must let your light shine so that we may be able to witness to the lost. God has given us the power.

  34. 6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

    7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
    ******************
    I am so thankful for the salvation I found in Jesus Christ. I was living in a worldly way though I believe I was a Christian, been baptized ( in the titles), going to church occasionally when I felt like it, repented of my sins and then repeated them. Not reading the bible regularly. It wasn’t till I learned the truth, that I started having a real relationship with Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Walking daily with Him , becoming rooted in Him, this has established my faith in Him. I never want to or will go back to the life I had before. I love being a born again in Jesus name, Holy Spirit filled, a member of the family of God, a true Christian. It brings joy and peace that you will never find in the world. Praise God, for the word of God is true and free to all who will accept it. Hallelujah
