 11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and meekness.

Revelation 1:9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, in the kingdom, and patient endurance in Jesus Christ,3 was on the isle that is called Patmos, because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. [If any man wants to serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there my servant will also be. John 12:26. Your sight and consciousness are in heaven, but you are still on the earth serving the Lord. From the Word of the Lord within: "You can live in heaven and still walk the earth. I will come again to the elect; I will be a crown to lead and guide them." As George Fox ministered on the earth, he was translated to paradise; and then he lived in paradise.]

 1 Having such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us,1 let us lay aside every weight, and the sin that does so easily entangle us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.1 [Note! If you lack nothing, then you have everything possible, (including fellowship with Christ and the Father, raised to heaven, sitting with Christ in the kingdom, in union with Christ and God, free from even the desire to sin, pure, holy, permanently perfected, protected from ever sinning again — all while still alive on earth), as Paul wrote the perfect man does: Until we all come to the unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; Eph 4:13. If you are a perfect man and possess the fullness of Christ, you have everything possible.]

Romans 5:3-4

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation works patience; [Paul is speaking to mature believers, those who have experienced tribulations, to work patience. Spirit imposed tribulation and suffering are part of the cross, and the only way you will ever be rid of sin. Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you, 1 Pet 4:12. Therefore, since Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same mind because he who has suffered in the flesh is finished with sin, 1 Pet 4:1.]

 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope;

Galatians 5:22-23

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace (quietness and confident trust forever), patience (including longsuffering, steadfastness, and perseverance), kindness (including morality and integrity), goodness, faithfulness, [From the Word of the Lord within, "until you witness receiving faith from Christ, you are under the law." Until you are led by the spirit, you are under the law, Gal 5:18; when you receive this fruit, you are then led by the Spirit. Those branches without fruit are thrown into the fire.]

 23 Gentleness (including meekness and humility), and self-control (mastery of sensual appetites, passions, and desires). Against these there is no law.5 [After you have mortified and crucified your sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial, you receive the fruit of the spirit. Then you are no longer subject to the law because then you are led by the Spirit. Rom 8:14, Gal 3:25, 5:18. The law has dominion over a man until his death, Rom 7:1, which death occurs when he has been crucified, Rom 7:6,Gal 2:20; as the next verse emphasizes.]

Romans 8:25

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet see, then we wait for it [salvation] with patient endurance. [Notice, Paul tells them that if they have not seen their salvation, they are to wait for it with patient endurance. This is another proof that salvation comes to those who heed and obey the spoken-to-them commands of God that they hear as they persistently and patiently wait on Him, Heb 5:9, 9:28. Reading about being saved, or preachers telling us that we are saved, or saying that we are saved, is not seeing or experiencing salvation; so how do we see salvation — when we see Jesus bring our salvation in this present life. Just like we, through the Spirit, by faith, patiently wait for the hope of righteousness, Gal 5:5, we wait for salvation. From the Word of the Lord within: "You must wait on the Lord to receive salvation."]
