1Timothy

TIMOTHY 1

 

59 AD

The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacatiana.

Timothy was the most trusted and dearly beloved of Paul's teammates.

Seems to be written from Macedonia, Philippi.

Paul leaves Luke and Timothy behind in Ephasus (1 Tim 1:3)

 

Paul may have met Timothy on the first missionary journey when visiting Lystra and Derbe. He positively did meet him when he revisited those places on the second journey. Thereafter Timothy became a frequent companion of Paul on his travels and appears to have been placed in some position of authority over the assembly at Ephesus, where he saw, eventually, ordained Bishop.

 

The main theme is concerned with practical matters affecting assembly organization and the character and behavior of ministers, and office holders.

In these letters, Paul shows the future of the merely visible and outward form of the “church” to be apostasy.

 

Translations from the original Greek will be used often to clarify mistakes and bring to light deliberate changes by the lying pen of the scribes. (Jer 8:8)

 

This letter emphasizes how the Christian assembly was expected to act, as well as the ministers.

1Timothy 1:1  Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Prince Yahshua Christ, which is our hope;

 1:2  Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith (allegiance): Grace (Favor), mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Prince.

The Greek reads, 'purely bred child in faith'. Timothy is not Paul's literal son as shown in Acts 16:1 which states that his mother was a Judaean and his father was a Greek.

Paul is stating that Timothy is an Israelite, of the faith and the seed of Abraham. The Bible is about the generations of Adam (Gen 5:1). It can be easily demonstrated that this seedline from Adam to Noah to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are the same race. Kind after kind. Jacob whose name was changed to Israel, had 12 sons, and from the time in Egypt to today, the descendants of these tribes are the anglo-saxon people, seed, race of the white nations of the world.

 1:3  As I besought you (Timothy) to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that you mightest charge (command) some that they teach no other doctrine,  (Acts 20:1)

Paul was warning of false teachers, Judaizers, those who taught errors. The Judaizers of the day were the scribes and Pharisees and Sadducees. These religious sects were infiltrated by Canaanites and Edomites while the Israelites were in captivity. They distorted the laws of Moses into the 'traditions of men'. Today it is called Judaism, Communism, and Talmudism, all of which are of the Jews. (Gal 1:6-7)

 1:4  Neither give heed to fables  and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

The Greek:

4  Nor give heed to myths and endless genealogies, which afford disputes rather than management of the family of Yahweh which is by faith.

'Edify' in verse 4 is from G3622. It means 'management of family'. What family? Is it the human race? Not according to scripture. The family is the seed of Abraham, a chosen race of people by Yahweh, holy, set apart from the other races by Yahweh.

The myths and endless genealogies are referring to how the Greeks and other pagans claimed their ancestry was from the gods. Zeus, Ares, Apollos, unions of gods and earthly mates.

 1:5  Now the end (result) of the commandment is charity (love) out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: (Rom 13:8, Gal 5:14)

 1:6  From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling (talking); (1 Tim 6:4,20)

 1:7  Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

Just because someone has knowledge does not mean they have truth. This goes for preachers today as well, who have been mentally inseminated with Judaized doctrine in seminary school, just like Paul when he was Saul, learning as a Pharisee.

 1:8  But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;  (Rom 7:12)

 1:9  Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

But the “churches” teach that the law was “done away with”. Well 30 years after the crucifixion, the scriptures are still enforcing the law.  The sacrificial rituals were done.

 1:10  For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind (Homos), for menstealers (kidnappers), for liars, for perjured persons (falsely swearing, oath), and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

 1:11  According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

It was Paul's job to bring the message of the word to the dispersed tribes of Israel that lost and/or forgot who they were, the seed of Abraham. The other apostles taught the Israelites of the house of Judah, which had the law, and did not realize that the house of Israel (the dispersed) were their brethren. The “churches” teach that the Jews are Israel and the Gentiles are everyone else. I pray that you see the magnitude of this deception.

 1:12  And I thank Christ Jesus our Prince, who hath enabled me, for that He counted me faithful (loyal), putting me into the ministry;

 1:13  Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.  (Acts 8:3)

Clearly one can be forgiven from sins committed in ignorance, as was Paul.

If only our ignorant preachers and “churches” will have a revelation.

 1:14  And the grace (favor) of our Prince was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.  (Rom 5:20)

 1:15  This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

15  Trustworthy is this saying, and worthy of all acceptance: that Christ Yahshua came into Society to deliver wrongdoers, of which I am first,

Paul knows he did wrong to the children of Israel, his own kinsmen, it's possible he feels that he was the first of the worst to be forgiven after the ascension of Christ.

 1:16  Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on Him to life everlasting.

The pattern of a sinner and the acknowledgment and understanding of it, along with the allegiance (faith) of imitating Christ's example.

 1:17  Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

 1:18  This charge (command) I commit unto you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them mightest war a good warfare; (soldier a good battle)

 1:19  Holding faith (allegiance), and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

A lot of the early converts had fallen over the wayside rapidly.

 1:20  Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered (surrendered) unto Satan (the Adversary), that they may learn not to blaspheme.  (2 Tim 2:17, 4:14)

When we put those who sin out of our company, congregation, or society and let the children of darkness (the Adversary) deal with them, they will suffer from refusing to follow the Christian Way. It might even bring them to repentance. For what communion has light with darkness?

 

 

1Timothy 2:1  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

 2:2  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

 2:3  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of Yahweh God our Saviour;

Romans 12:2  And be not conformed to this world (society): but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

 2:4  Who will have (desires) all men to be saved (preserved), and to come unto the (full) knowledge of the truth.

This is a conditional verse. Yahweh wants us to be preserved in this life by coming to and living in the truth. The truth that we are the descendants of Jacob and have a duty to be the light of this corrupt society.

 2:5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Hebrews 9:15  And for this cause He is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

The “churches” teach that the OT was the past and Israel is the Jews. And that the NT was now for the “Gentile” “church”.

This verse explicitly and exclusively refers to the children of Israel. The old covenant in the OT and the new covenant in the NT are to the SAME people. The 'called out' seed of Abraham, whom the promises were made. No other race or people were given the law, covenants, promises and election  spoken of in scripture. Christ came only unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel.

 2:6  Who gave Himself a ransom for all (Adamkind, the family), to be testified in due time.

Mark 10:45  For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many.

Preservation and eternal life for those in allegiance (faith).

 2:7  Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles (dispersed Nations of Israel)  in faith and verity.

 2:8  I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.  

Psalm 134:2  Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless Yahweh.

 2:9  In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided (braided) hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

 2:10  But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

 2:11  Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

 2:12  But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

       (1 Cor 14:34)

Isaiah 3:12  As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people, they which lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.

Sounds like today. The men have fallen asleep and the women and children, under the propaganda influence of Judaism, are running wild.

 2:13  For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

 2:14  And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

The Greek has the ending as “...the woman being deceived when the transgression occurred.”

Eve was beguiled by the Devil when the transgression (sex) occurred.

Adam chose to accept Eve after she had fallen, and in doing so Adam also transgressed.  Adam could, and should have asked Yahweh for another wife of righteousness.

This is similar to when Joseph thought Mary was with another man. Joseph was willing to put her away and not accept her, only this child was of Yahweh and not of Satan.

 2:15  Notwithstanding she shall be saved (delivered) in childbearing, if they continue in faith (allegiance) and charity and holiness with sobriety.

15  But she will be delivered through child-bearing, if they abide in faith and love and sanctification with discretion.

 

 

Bishops and Deacons

1Timothy 3:1  This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop (supervisor), he desireth a good work.

 3:2  A bishop (supervisor) then must be blameless (irreproachable), the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

 3:3  Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre (money); but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

 3:4  One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity (reverence);

 3:5  (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the assembly of God?)

 3:6  Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

 3:7  Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without (outside); lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

1Corinthians 5:12-13

12  For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

13  But them that are without (outside) God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

2Timothy 2:26  And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

If those within do not conform to The Way, we are to cast them out and let Yahweh judge them. Being ensnared in the lusts of the Adversary, they might wake up and repent.

 3:8  Likewise must the deacons (reverent ministers) be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre (money);

 3:9  Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. (Eph 3)

The mystery is the identity of the nations of Israel. And it's not the Jews!

 3:10  And let these (ministers) also first be proved (scrutinized); then let them use the office of a deacon (minister), being found blameless.

Bishops and deacons are the same thing, they are servants, ministers of truth. The different words used in the KJV for ministers is to give validity to the layers of authority. We are not to rule over each other. Women and children answer to men, and men to Yahweh.

 3:11  Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

 3:12  Let the deacons (ministers) be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

 3:13  For they that have used the office of a deacon (minister) well purchase (obtain) to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith (allegiance) which is in Christ Jesus.

 3:14  These things write I unto you, hoping to come unto you shortly:

 3:15  But if I tarry long, that you mayest know how you oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church (assembly) of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles (Nations of Israel), believed on in the world (society), received up into glory (honor).

John 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and tabernacled among us, (and we beheld His splendor, the glory as of the most beloved of the Father,) full of favor and truth.

1John 1:2  (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

Christ was the example. That example is our goal.

 

 

This chapter is speaking of today's “churches”.

Just because one goes to “church” doesn't mean they are learning truth. The scriptures warn us of falling away. Put a frog in a pot of water and bring it to boil. The frog will not notice the gradual change and be consumed.

1Timothy 4:1  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith (allegiance), giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

John 16:3  And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor Me.

The Judaism being taught in our “churches” is the doctrines of devils.

 4:2  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

 4:3  Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats (foods), which God hath created (established) to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe (have allegiance) and know the truth.

The food reference must be talking about the food that Yahweh established as clean and for our sustenance and preservation. Today, our enemies have genetically modified our crops and animals. They push pork as food, Yahweh does not change His mind about what He deemed unclean (Lev, Mal 3:6). Our society's diet is far from natural and far from the food laws.

Some of you ought to be ashamed of what you allow into your temple (body).

 4:4  For every creature (establishment) of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

The foods Yahweh deemed good (clean) were sacrificed to pagan gods back then, and unless you had a farm, you bought your meat at the temple where the market was attached. Some Israelites had a conscience about this, but understanding that if they needed to buy meat, buy it, take it home, pray over it and eat it.

 4:5  For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

 4:6  If you put the brethren in remembrance of these things, you shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto you hast attained.

2Timothy 3:14  But continue you in the things which you hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom you hast learned;

If you continue in truth, you will know Christ, you will have learned to be like Christ.

Note: Verse 6 'minister' is the same word as 'deacon' (G1249). Why didn't the translators write 'deacon of Jesus'? Doesn't fit, they only use it when it supports their clerical hierarchy idea.

 4:7  But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

Don't support evolution. Don't spend ALL your time at the gym. Exercise your understanding.

 4:8  For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

Psalm 37:4  Delight thyself also in Yahweh; and He shall give you the desires of thine heart.

 4:9  This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.

 4:10  For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

This is one of those bad, deliberate errors. Let's observe in the Greek:

10  For this we toil and we struggle, because we have trusted in Yahweh who lives, who is Savior of all most believing men.

Deliberate changes are sneaked in unawares. This leads to hidden agendas. One is universalizing the word of Yahweh to everyone in the world. The Bible is a book written by, to, for and about the race of Adam and specifically the seed of Abraham. The laws, covenants, and promises were made by Yahweh to his seed. Blacks, Asians, and Mexicans were not in the Exodus, or the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities. Or at the sermon on the Mount. Or at the fall of Rome, and even the Crusades. Yahweh chose Abraham's seed.

 4:11  These things command (transmit) and teach.

 4:12  Let no man despise your youth; but be you an example (model) of the believers, in word, in conversation (conduct), in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

'youth' refers to newness, as in newness to the Truth.

 4:13  Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine (teaching).

 4:14  Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.  

14  Do not have neglect for the favor within you, which was given to you through the interpretation of Scripture along with the laying on of hands of the council of elders.

The favor, or gift, that is in us is because of the promise to Abraham. We are sinners, worthy of death, but because of Yahweh's covenant with Abraham, we will not be consumed. That's why Christ died for us, so through allegiance (faith) with Him we will live. It's up to us to choose to follow, it's up to Him to choose us. That's why it is wrong and arrogant to declare “I'm Saved!”. It has nothing to do with anything of your own doing.

 4:15  Meditate (attend) upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that your profiting (progress, development) may appear to all.

 4:16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine (teaching); continue in them: for in doing this you shalt both save (preserve) thyself, and them that hear you.

Preservation for obedience.

 

 

1Timothy 5:1  Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;  (Lev 19:32)

 5:2  The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.

 5:3  Honour widows that are widows indeed.

 5:4  But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.

 5:5  Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.

1Corinthians 7:32  But I would have you without carefulness (be unconcerned). He/she that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Prince, how he/she may please the Prince:

 5:6  But she that liveth in pleasure (lewdly) is dead while she liveth.

 5:7  And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.

7  And you transmit these things in order that they would be irreproachable.

 5:8  But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

The Greek has 'inferior to one of the faithless'.

Isaiah 58:7  Is it not to deal your bread to the hungry, and that you bring the poor that are cast out to your house? when you seest the naked, that you cover him; and that you hide not thyself from thine own flesh (kin)?

There are three types of people:

People of the faith. Abraham's of course. Israelites. The caucasian race. Practice good.

People that do not have the faith. Literally the descendants of Cain/Canaanites and Esau/Edomites. Spiritless. Demonic. Practice evil.

People that deny the faith. All the children of the serpent as well as children of Yahweh.

 5:9  Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,

 5:10  Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

The community should support the elder widows. They were mature and had life experience.

 5:11  But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;

 5:12  Having damnation (judgment), because they have cast off their first faith (assurance).

Verse 11 does not say the women desired to marry Christ. Here and in many other places, 'Christ' does not always mean the man. It often means the group, the Anointed seed of Isaac, Jacob/Israel. The only 'called out' seed, people, posterity Yahweh has known.

The younger women desired the men (the Anointed men of Israel). If they were taken in and cared for before marriage and an experienced life, they became like desperate housewives.

They would be better to marry then fall into temptation.

 5:13  And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.

 5:14  I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.

 5:15  For some are already turned aside after Satan.

 5:16  If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

16  If anyone faithful keeps widows, they must assist them and not burden the assembly, in order that it may assist those who are really widows.

 5:17  Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.

17  Those elders having governed rightly are worthy of double honor, especially those toiling in the word and in teaching.

 5:18  For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.  (Deut 25:4, 1 Cor 9:9)

It's only fair the ox should get to eat as well.

 5:19  Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

 5:20  Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. (Deut 13:11)

Rebuke publicly. The “churches” don't follow this example.

Titus 1:13  This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

 5:21  I charge (appeal) you before God, and the Prince Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that you observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

      (1 Tim 6:17, 2 Tim 2:14)

The scriptures teach NO TOLERANCE. Nothing by partiality. Why do the “churches” teach the opposite? Because the “churches” are factories for molding minions of darkness.

 5:22  Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.

 5:23  Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for your stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.

The scriptures do not condemn wine. Christ's first miracle was turning water into wine. 1 Timothy 3:8 and Titus 2:3 approve in moderation. How bout a psalm for a buzz?

Psalm 104:15  And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.

 5:24  Some men's sins are open (manifest, obvious) beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.

 5:25  Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.

 

 

1Timothy 6:1  Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and His doctrine be not blasphemed.  (Eph 6:5, Col 3:22)

 6:2  And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort (encourage).

 6:3  If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Prince Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;  (Titus 1:9)

 6:4  He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

1Corinthians 8:2  And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.

 6:5  Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

 6:6  But godliness with contentment is great gain.

 6:7  For we brought nothing into this world (order), and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

 6:8  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

Genesis 28:20  And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

Hebrews 13:5  Let your conversation (character) be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.

 6:9  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

Proverbs 15:27  He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

 6:10  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith (allegiance), and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  (Deut 16:19)

 6:11  But you, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith (moral conviction), love, patience, meekness.

2Timothy 2:2  And the things that you hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit you to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

Deuteronomy 33:1  And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.

 6:12  Fight the good fight of faith (allegiance), lay hold on eternal life, whereunto you art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.  (Phil 3:12)

 6:13  I give you charge (command) in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

In verse 12, 'professed and profession' means acknowledgment. The Greek reference is G3670/3671.

In verse 13, 'confession' should be 'profession'. The same reference is used G3671. Christ did not confess to Pilate, He professed. He proclaimed.

Verse 13 in the Greek:

13  I command you before Yahweh who brings to life all things, and Christ Yahshua who testified the good profession before Pontius Pilate.

John 18:37  Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art you a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world (society), that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth My voice.

The children of Israel are His sheep, only they hear His voice, only He knows His sheep.

(John 10:27)

1Samuel 2:6  Yahweh killeth, and maketh alive: He bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.

 6:14  That you keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Prince Jesus Christ:

The “churches” teach “just believe”.

The scriptures teach to keep His commandments. Walk in The Way. Imitate our Saviour.

 6:15  Which in His times He shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Sovereign of Sovereigns;

 6:16  Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

 6:17  Charge (Exhort) them that are rich in this world (age), that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;  

Luke 12:21  So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

 6:18  That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;

James 2:5  Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which He hath promised to them that love Him?

John 14:15  If ye love Me, keep My commandments.

 6:19  Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.  

Matthew 6:20  But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

 6:20  O Timothy, keep that which is committed to your trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

Falsely labeled knowledge.

TIMOTHY1 – CHURCH DOCTRINE VS. SCRIPTURE

Below are 3 sources of what the modern churches preach today about the book of Timothy 1.

The purpose is to expose the apostasy and perversion of the scriptures, and to educate our people about the truth of our heritage. That we, the anglo-saxon race who are the descendants of ancient Israel, are the people of Abraham's seed and therefore the heirs of the promises of Yahweh. Not the Jews who distort and pervert the scriptures and teach the 'traditions of men'.

The book of 1st Timothy is a Pastoral Epistle (letter from Paul to a church (assembly) leader). The author is Paul who wrote it approximately 62 A.D. The key personalities are the Apostle Paul and Timothy. It was written to give encouragement and leadership guidelines to a young pastor named Timothy at the church (assembly) in Ephesus.

•    Chapter 1 begins with a greeting to Timothy, then quickly turns to a warning against false teachings, and an emphasis on correct beliefs. Paul encourages him to “fight the good fight” (vs. 18).

•    In chapters 2-4, Paul declares that God desires salvation (preservation) for everyone, “Who desires all men to be saved (preserved) and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2:4).

Paul then teaches that, “For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (2:5).

Next, Paul lays some important guidelines and principles for church (assembly) leadership. He taught the controversial subject of women in the church (assembly) and what the two offices of leadership in the church (assembly) were to be, the Overseer and the Deacon. He even taught some of the practices that should be carried out in the church (assembly) such as, “give attention to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation and teaching” (4:13).

•    Chapter 5-6, Paul gives guidelines for relationships within the church (assembly) as he explains how to deal with discipline and care for widows. He gives advice of how to minister and lays more guidelines for the wealthy instructing them to be generous. “Instruct those who are rich in this present world (society) not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy” (6:17).

"Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen." (1:17)

Paul’s First Letter to Timothy

Start reading it here: 1 Timothy 1

When was it written? Most likely between AD 62 and 66. It’s likely that Paul was in Macedonia when he wrote this letter (see 1 Timothy 1:3).

Paul was likely executed by Nero in Rome in 62 AD.

To whom was it written? 1 Timothy is a “pastoral” letter. These letters were addressed to church leaders and outlined their pastoral duties. The letter was written to Timothy. Timothy was to detail the duties of ministers of assemblies. This one was written to Timothy, a believer (saint) in Ephesus who had worked and traveled extensively with Paul. A saint is not any “believer”. A saint is anyone of the 'called out', set apart, consecrated seed of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob. Throughout the letter, Paul uses the tone of a father instructing a son, even calling Timothy his “true child of the faith.” Because Timothy had parents from both houses of Israel. A pure bred Israelite of the faith of Abraham.

Why was it written? The Christian church (assembly) in Ephesus was falling into serious error: a form of gnosticism was corrupting church teachings. Actually “church” teachings have corrupted Christianity. In those days, the scribes and Pharisees were corrupting the laws of Moses and the OT prophets into 'the doctrines of men', known as Judaism and more secretly, Talmudism, the Jews religion. Paul urges Timothy to remain in Ephesus to put a stop to these falsehoods and maintain spiritual discipline within the church (assembly). Both to protect the Ephesian church (assembly) from further error and to encourage the formation of a Christlike community, Paul includes many instructions about the administration of the church (assembly).

 

What does it say? Like Paul’s letter to the Colossians, 1 Timothy confronts the danger of pagan, syncretistic theology within the church (assembly). Influential people within the church (assembly) were promoting practices and ideologies that didn’t cohere with Christian doctrine. These people would be the children of darkness, the agitators, the Edomite scribes and Pharisees. The Greek goddess Artemis was the city’s favored deity—the Temple of Artemis, located in Ephesus, was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World—and pagan beliefs were seeping into the young Christian church (assembly). Timothy’s charge was to urge the Church (assembly) to stay true to the Christian faith (see 1 Timothy 2:5-6 and 4).

This letter also functions as an administrative guide for the church (assembly). Paul outlines the procedure of public worship, the qualifications of church (assembly) leaders, the treatment of elders and widows, gender roles within the community, and even instructions for slaves (servants, including ox). These passages are heavily discussed to this day, as modern Christians try to understand Paul’s specific and practical guidelines within the cultural context of the ancient Roman world.

Noteworthy passages:

  • 1 Timothy 2:5: Paul asserts the oneness of God and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ, in contrast to polytheistic pagan beliefs. Oneness of unity. Yahweh is the lump, Christ is an extension of the lump.

  • 1 Timothy 3: Paul’s list of qualifications for church (assembly) leaders is also an excellent guide for godly living in general. Yea, the qualifications are race, understanding and obedience.

  • 1 Timothy 6:7: The origin of the saying “you can’t take it with you!”

  • 1 Timothy 6:10: Paul’s famous warning that “the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil.”

What can we learn from 1 Timothy? As we’ve seen in some of Paul’s other letters, false teaching has been a threat to the church (assembly) from its earliest days. While it’s unlikely that the specific heresies described in 1 Timothy are taking root in your church,  our modern age has its own fair share of appealing but false philosophies; we can certainly benefit from Paul’s emphasis on refuting erroneous beliefs and remaining true to the teachings of Christ. This is the deception we are warned about. Being so arrogant and ignorant to the fact that  today's “churches” are the result of the heresies of those days. The scriptures do not teach that the Jew's are Israel, or Jesus was a Jew, or that we are “Gentiles” that get “adopted” by “just believing” and declaring we are “saved”. Scripture does not teach “personal salvation” or that the law has been “done away with”. Or that anyone who “believes” becomes a saint. That we are to tolerate evil and evil doers. And to wait around for a “rapture”.

Brethren, our “churches” are apostate. It's time to wake up.

Paul’s message is simple and exquisitely clear: one God; salvation by Jesus Christ.

Preservation by allegiance (faith) in the faith (allegiance) of Christ.

Paul’s instructions regarding church (assembly) leadership and responsibilities are very relevant today, and churches around the world use 1 Timothy as a guide for choosing leaders and understanding their duties.

So why don't they follow them? Why are they still teaching the apostasy detailed above? Why are there homosexuals and mixed race couples in the congregation? Why is transgression not rebuked and the transgressors put out?

Consider these questions as you read 1 Timothy:

  • Why do you think Paul focuses so much on interpersonal guidance in this letter? Paul is warning Timothy of Judaizers and tells Timothy to warn the assemblies, and so forth.

  • Reading 1 Timothy, what picture do you get of the church in Ephesus? It's not a “church”. It's a congregation, an assembly of saints who believe, follow and seek understanding.

  • Does your church use 1 Timothy’s guidelines for leaders and church administration as the basis for its everyday work? I don't go to “church” because of the apostasy. How does your church approach some of the more controversial guidelines in 1 Timothy, such as Paul’s instructions for women and slaves? Asking women to be modest and allowing your servants to some of their labors are not controversial. What's controversial is rebuking the apostasies defined above!

  • Your church probably isn’t tempted by Artemis worship. But what non-Christian beliefs could you see threatening your church, if you were to let your guard down? How about worship of a Jewish Christ? People, the Jews are the children of the Wicked One. John 8:44. If you don't believe me, believe Jesus who identified them. They have corrupted Our Way and now only a remnant of “the elect” are left unfooled.

Summary of the Book of 1 Timothy

During his fourth missionary journey, Paul had instructed Timothy to care for the church (assembly) at Ephesus (1:3) while he went on to Macedonia. When he realized that he might not return to Ephesus in the near future (3:14-15), he wrote this first letter to Timothy to develop the charge he had given his young assistant (1:3, 18), to refute false teachings (1:3-7; 4:1-8; 6:3-5,20-21) and to supervise the affairs of the growing Ephesian church (assembly).

A major problem in the Ephesian church (assembly) was a heresy that combined Gnosticism, decadent Judaism (1:3-7) and false asceticism (4:1-5).

As the salutation indicates (1:2), Paul is writing to Timothy, a native of Lystra (in modern Turkey). Timothy's father was Greek (“Gentile” according to the “churches”. According to scripture, the Greeks were of the dispersed Nations of Israel, the uncircumcision) , while his mother was a Jewish Christian (No such thing as a Jewish Christian, in scripture the word 'Jew' should read 'Judaean' meaning an Israelite of the house of Judah dwelling in Judaea, the circumcision)(Acts 16:1). From childhood he had been taught the OT (2Tim 1:5; 3:15). Paul called him "my true son in the faith" (pure bred child, an Israelite), perhaps having led him to faith in Christ during his first visit to Lystra. At the time of his second visit Paul invited Timothy to join him on his missionary travels, circumcising him so that his Greek ancestry would not be a liability in working with the Jews (Judaeans) (Acts 16:3). Before the gospel, the Greeks (uncircumcision) and Judaeans (circumcision) lost and forgot their heritage and relationship with each other. Timothy helped Paul evangelize Macedonia and Achaia (Acts 17:14-15; 18:5) and was with him during much of his long preaching ministry at Ephesus (Acts 19:22). He traveled with him from Ephesus to Macedonia, to Corinth ( Acts 20:3), back to Macedonia, and to Asia Minor (Acts 20:1-6). He may even have accompanied him all the way to Jerusalem. He was with Paul during the apostle's first imprisonment (Php 1:1; Col 1:1; Phm 1).

Following Paul's release (after Acts 28), Timothy again traveled with him but eventually stayed at Ephesus to deal with the problems there, while Paul went on to Macedonia. Paul's closeness to and admiration of Timothy are seen in Paul's naming him as the co-sender of six of his letters (2 Corinthians, Philippians, Colossians, 1,2 Thessalonians and Philemon) and in his speaking highly of him to the Philippians (Php 2:19-22). At the end of Paul's life he requested Timothy to join him at Rome (2Ti 4:9,21). According to Heb 13:23, Timothy himself was imprisoned and subsequently released -- whether at Rome or elsewhere, we do not know.

Timothy was not an apostle. It may be best to regard him as an apostolic representative, delegated to carry out special work (Tit 1:5).

Who wrote the book?

The first of Paul’s final series of letters—which along with 2 Timothy and Titus are called the Pastoral Epistles—1 Timothy offers practical and pastoral advice from the aging apostle Paul to a young pastor named Timothy working in the church (assembly) at Ephesus. More than a decade prior to writing this letter, Paul had first met Timothy in the city of Lystra—in Asia Minor—where Timothy was known and respected by the Christians (Acts 16:1–4). Upon recognizing Timothy’s impressive qualities, Paul recruited the young man to travel with him as he continued his second missionary journey. The presence of Timothy would have met an important need for Paul, their friendship coming on the heels of Paul’s split with his close friend and partner in missions, Barnabas (15:36–41).

Where are we?

The Bible’s silence on the ultimate fate of Paul has engendered a great deal of debate in modern times. The book of Acts ends with Paul sitting in a Roman prison awaiting his hearing before the Roman emperor, a privilege of appeal that all Roman citizens possessed. However, the writing of the Pastoral Epistles clearly dates to a time after the events of Acts. So where was Paul when he wrote 1 Timothy? Paul had expected the Romans to release him from prison, something that likely happened near the end of AD 62 (Philippians 2:24). His release allowed him the opportunity to travel to Ephesus and eventually place Timothy in ministry at that church. Paul then went on to preach in Macedonia, where he heard reports of Timothy’s work at Ephesus that prompted him to write 1 Timothy, probably in AD 63.

No evidence supports Paul ever being released from Rome. He was likely beheaded by Nero in 62 AD.

Why is First Timothy so important?

First Timothy presents the most explicit and complete instructions for church (assembly) leadership and organization in the entire Bible. This includes sections on appropriate conduct in worship gatherings, the qualifications of elders and deacons, and the proper order of church (assembly) discipline. Paul advised Timothy on these practical matters in a way that would have helped the young pastor to emphasize the purity that should characterize Christian leaders and the gatherings they oversee.

What's the big idea?

Timothy’s youth no doubt served him well, allowing for the energy and vigor he needed to serve his people. However, it also caused inevitable difficulties with older Christians who may not have taken quickly to the leadership of such a young man because of his lack of knowledge and experience in leadership. It was important to Paul that Timothy set an example of consistent faith and a good conscience, remaining above reproach and exercising the spiritual gifts that God had given him (1 Timothy 4:12–16).

However, Paul knew that such a task would not be easy for the young man. Therefore, on two occasions Paul encouraged Timothy to “fight the good fight” (1:18; 6:12). Perseverance in what was good often became a slog for Timothy, one that required thick skin and a clear purpose.

How do I apply this?

The leaders of our churches fill important roles as they participate in encouraging the spiritual growth of Christians under their care. If they know the truth, unfortunately most of our preachers today are under the schooling of corrupted seminary schools. Although with good intention, they are deceived and ignorantly repeat to you what they were taught. We know the significance of these men in our churches and in our personal lives, but 1 Timothy helps us to gain a clearer understanding of the proper qualifications and roles for church (assembly) leaders. Paul’s letter shows us those things he hoped Timothy would address in his ministry, providing a template of sorts that our leaders can follow in their own ministries.

If only they would do just that.

How do your leaders implement Paul’s exhortations in 1 Timothy? They don't, just read the details of the apostasy in the above summaries. When has the “church” or anyone ever rebuked unrighteousness? Our churches will be strongest when they are closest to the biblical vision laid out for them. That's a fact. Now let's get closer. As you look at your church or look for a new one, consider the priorities of the leaders. If your “church” has any of the apostasy stated above, look for a new one. Or get educated and help turn it right side up. Look for an emphasis on sound doctrine, on purity within the leaders’ personal lives, and on living out the Christian faith by example. Find those qualities, and you will more than likely find a church where you can thrive. And it doesn't have to be a “church” where you learn.

Matthew 18:20  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

The word 'church' in the bible never refers to a building. The Greek word is 'ecclessia' which means a 'called out' body of saints, an assembly, holy children of Israel, of the seed of Abraham.
