But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ

No matter what situation you find yourself in, we must never rebel against God because He has the right over us. Therefore, celebrate Him for everything He does. We came into this world without asking for anything. Life is ephemeral. Let us be good to people, no matter what their condition. "Owe no man any thing but to love one another" (Romans 13:8). You can have everything, but in the coffin you leave with nothing!

Philippians 3:4-14

Paul shows us his journey. He thought he was above the others, so zealous was he that he persecuted the people of God. He was born an Israelite and kept the law. Peter said the same thing, "Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten anything unclean or defiled. (Acts 10:14)

Pharisee was the most rigid sect. Paul had grown up at the feet of Gamaliel. Without realizing it, he was filled with pride. As far as knowing the Word and doing the Word, there was nothing to reproach him with. For him, if God came, he went. Only a little pride takes you away from God, that changes everything.

The stage of sanctification is a very important stage. As long as you have this nature of pride, there is still dirt. The anointing can come upon you, but when you look at your actions, there is a problem. When the Holy Spirit comes, He cannot dwell in a dirty place. "But since he who called you is holy, you also must be holy in all your conduct" (1 Peter 1:15) "For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God." (Romans 8: 14) "If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong." (Romans 8:9) "But as it is written, these are things which eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor come to the heart of man, things which God has prepared for those who love him." (1 Corinthians 2:9) "The spiritual man, on the other hand, judges everything, and is himself judged by no one." (1 Corinthians 2:15) If there is a speck of pride anywhere, there is a problem because your walk will never be straight. Satan was a perfect archangel but he found pride in him. That's what made him fall to the lowest position. You can know, you can have the anointing, but a little pride puts you out. When you see the other as inferior, get on your knees, fast and pray. "By the grace given to me, I say to each of you, do not think too highly of yourselves, but be modest in your thinking, according to the measure of faith God has given to each of you." (Romans 12:3) We are all fought in the spirit. Satan is evil and a liar. When you accept the thought, then you become a prisoner of it. No one can tell you anything anymore, you take everything wrong. God loves us and He has given us the weapons to be perfect. You have to get to the point where the devil looks for faults and sins, and he doesn't find them. "Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the company of scoffers, but delights in the law of the LORD, and meditates on it day and night." (Psalm 1:1-2) "Let not this book of the law depart from thy mouth: meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest do according to all that is written therein: for then shalt thou prosper in thy works, and then shalt thou prosper." (Joshua 1:8) The weapon is to meditate on the Word. When Satan comes, the Word comes out. Someone who is proud is like someone who is crazy. Someone who is slow to anger is in control. When you are calm, people respect you. When a dog barks, it is to scare you. But when you stand in front of it calmly without shaking, you dominate the situation. Your attitude dominates the other person. When someone insults you, don't respond.

Moses was a very angry man, he even killed an Egyptian. God gave him a rebellious people. God worked on a man. For this people, God made him become very soft until he won.
