The Epistle Of Joy – Part 10
Philippians is known as the Epistle of Joy. Paul’s first encounter with the people of Philippi is found in Acts 16 where Paul received a vision of a gentleman from Macedonia asking him to come over there. Philippi was a chief city of Macedonia. It is referred to as a colony, a colony was a Roman city for their war veterans. The people of Philippi were not Jews but gentiles. The theme of Philippians is Joy in the midst of every situation. Paul suffered imprisonment, yet he had joy. This joy is above and beyond what the world can have or understand.
Part 10 – Tonight we look at verses 19 – 22 in Philippians 1. Many times believers have had the idea that they could not know when it was their time to move to heaven, in this message we will discover that not only can we know but we play a major part in the decision of going or staying. Your faith will be strengthened in your relationship with your Father God as you realize that He has provided grace for every area of your life including death.
