1 Timothy 2: Jezebel Christian Women And God's Revelations
The "Tell It Like He Saw It" Unwavering Apostle Paul Strengthened Timothy And God Loving Christians With Sound Admonition (John 15:10-15; Luke 6:46). The Apostle Paul Addressed Jezebel Dressing And Acting Christian Women And God's Expectations For Christians In 1 Timothy Chapter 2. This Article Reviews This Information. We'll Be Edified With This Study Of 1 Timothy Chapter 2.
Let's Begin With 1 Timothy 2:1
1 Timothy 2:1 exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men;
Paul (and God's Holy Bible) gave very important areas which are necessary to approach God and gain His "Ear" Of Approval.
A) Praise- We Must Always Approach God First With Praise. God Is Worthy Of Praise (Psalm 145:3; Psalm 150:1-6).
B) Giving Of Thanks (Thanksgiving)- We Must Then Begin To Thank God For All That He Has Done, Is Doing And Will Do. Praise God! It's Often Wise To Make A List Of All Of God's Wonderful And Loving Deeds. We Humans Are Often Very Selfish And Pessimitic.
A Thank-ful, Joyus And Appreciative Attitude Is Necessary To Increase God's Holy Spirit In Us And Defeat Satan's Negative Attacks (1 Chronicles 16:4-7; 1 Chronicles 23:30; John 11:41; Mark 11:25).
C) Singing Before And To The Lord- (Psalm 96:1; Psalm 13:6; Psalm 145:7; Psalm 146:2; Psalm 147:1, 7; Psalm 149:1, 3, 5).
D) Prayers- Jesus Christ Taught Christians The Model Prayer At (Matthew 6:9-13).
E) Supplications Are Prayers That Are Humble Entreaties To God. Supplications and Petitions Should Only Be Made After Praise, Thankgivings And Songs.
We Christians Must Always Remember That We Serve The Almighty God Who Saved Us From Death With The Precious Blood Of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus. God Loves His Children. He Has Promised To Daily Provide For Us And To Never Leave Us Nor Forsake Us. He Promises To Be With Us Through All Our Dark Uncertainties And "Evils".
We Christians Should Never Approach God's Presence With Negative Doubts. God Allowed Satan To Take All Of Job's Possessions And Children. Yet Financially And Emotionally Devastated Job Fell To The Ground In Praise And Worship Of Almighty God (Jeremiah 32:17, 27; Matthew 19:26; Isaiah 9:6; John 3:16; Romans 5:9; 1 John 1:7-10; 1 John 4:8; Matthew 6:25-34; Hebrews 13:5-6; Psalm 23:1-6; Psalm 69:1-4, 14; Matthew 6:9-13; Job 1:1-22).
FAITH Means That We Beleive These Above Things About God No Matter How He Allows Life To "Slay (Strike)" Us (Job 13:15; Hebrews 11:4-6).
1Ti 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. 1Ti 2:3 For this [is] good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
Christians Should Not Be A Part Of This World. This World Belongs To Satan (Lucifer) And His Kingdom Followers (John 17:9, 14-16; John 18:36-37; John 16:7-11, 20-21, 33; Luke 4:4-7; 2 Corinthians 4:4; 1 John 2:15-17).
Paul Tells Christians To Pray For Worldly Authorities That They Not Persecute Christians But Allow Christians To Lead Godly Lives In Peace (John 17:9, 14-16).
1Ti 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
I Know The Entire World Will Never Accept Jesus Christ As Lord (God) And Savior (Deliverer). Yet I Pray The 1 Timothy 2:4 Prayer That "All People On Planet Earth Come To Truth About God And Accept Jesus Christ As Lord And Savior (John 14:4-7).
1Ti 2:5 For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 1Ti 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
God Came In The Flesh As The Man Jesus Christ. God The Creator Was Born As A Baby In A Lowly Manger. This Baby Was Emmanuel. This Baby Grew To Become A Man Called Jesus. The Self Volunteered Death Of Jesus Christ Saved All Believing Humans From Eternal Damnation For Sin (Colossians 1:26; 1 Timothy 3:16; Amos 3:4-7; John 19:5; Matthew 1:23; John 3:16; John 10:14-20).
1Ti 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 in faith and verity.
Satan Has Greatly Deceived This World. Those Called By God Should Not Have To Remind The World Of Our Heavenly Calling. Yet Just As Paul Did We Ordained Ministers Of God Often Have To Remind The Rebellious World Of Our Calling (Acts 2:1-30).
1Ti 2:8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
The Apostle Paul Encouraged Christians To Pray Everywhere. Christians Should Not Be Afraid To Bow On Their Knees Or Lift Up Their Hands In Prayer.
Christians Should Never Pray In Wrath. The Motive Of Our Prayers Should Never Be To Vent Or Vindicate Our Personal Anger(s).
Christians Must Ask The Holy Spirit To Cultivate God Approved Faith Within Themselves. A Wavering Or Doubting Christian Will Not Be Heard By God (James 1:5-8).
1Ti 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 1Ti 2:10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
The Apostle Paul Counseled Christian Women To Dress Modestly Not Drawing Unnecssary Attention To Themselves Or Their Persons. Christian Women Are Advised To Dress With Out Shame And With Sobriety (Or Soundness In Mind).
The Bible Associates "Harlot Like" Makeup, "Look At (Or Notice) Me" Attire And Jewlry, Seductive Hair Styles, A "Loose (Sexually Enticing)", "Liberal", Or "Jezebel" Way Of Dressing And "Jezebel Minded" Christians Directly With Satan (Lucifer), Lust, Immorality, Foulness (Cursed By God), Demonized Authority, Withcraft And "Skull And Bones".
Christians Should Remember That Jesus Christ Was Killed (Crucified) At The Place Of Skull (2 Kings 9:30-35; Revelation 2:20-23; Deuteronomy 18:9-15; Matthew 27:33; Mark 15:22; John 19:17).
The Apostle Paul Also Counselled That "Broided" Or "Braided" Hair Was Unbecoming For A Christian Woman.
Costly Array- The Bible Has Always Warned Against Lust (Covetous Desire) For Money And Material Things (1 John 2:15-17; 1 Timothy 6:10; Matthew 6:19-34).
Satan's World Teaches Girls, Females Women, Boys, Males And Men To Be Noticed. Our Heavenly Father Teaches Us To Be Quiet And Approach Him In His Secret (Mysterious) Presence. Only Then Will God Manifest Himself To Us And We Shall See His Presence. Anyone Who Has Not Obeyed These Biblical Commands Has Never Seen God No Matter What They Claim (Psalm 91:1; Psalm 18:11; Exodus 20:21; Matthew 6:4-6, 18; Amos 3:6-8; 1 Timothy 3:16; 2 Timothy 1:1-14; Matthew 16:13-28; Matthew 17:1-15; John 15:10-15; Luke 6:46; Exodus 20:4-6; 2 Thessalonians 2:11; John 8:32-44).
The Way A Christian Female Dresses And Conducts Herself Should Prove That She Is A Woman Of God. Christian Males Have This Same Biblical Obligation (1 Corinthians 10:31).
1Ti 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
1Ti 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 1Ti 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 1Ti 2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
When A Person Reads First And Second Timothy And The Book Of Acts They Will Learn That Certain Woman Opposed God's Way Of Doing Things. Paul Was Groomed As A Pharasiac Leader. These Men Felt That Women Should Be Seen And Not Heard. However Jesus Christ Never Taught This Belief. Jesus Christ Equated Women With Men. Often Times Women Knew More About God's Secrets Than The Male Apostles Did (John 4:1-29; Matthew 26:6-13; John 11:21-28-notice the word "secretly"; Matthew 22:23).
If It Were Not For Women Christian Teachers The Gospel Would Not Have Spread World Wide (Matthew 28:18-20). Both Saul And Paul (His Christian Name) Had Female Teachers. Any Real Man Knows That Ones Mother Is The Best Human Teacher They Can Have.
I Will Allow Your Own Prayers And The Holy Spirit To Help You Understand 1 Timothy 2:11-12. I Will Not Add Or Take Away From It (Revelation 22:18-20).
1Ti 2:15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
Any Christian (Male Or Female) Who Continues In Faith, Charity (Love) And Holiness (In All Sobriety-Soundness) Will Be Saved When Jesus Comes Again (John 14:28; Romans 10:9-13).
I Respect The Apostle Paul For His Never Wavering Faith And "Tell It Like He Saw It" Mentality. I Thank God The Holy Spirit For Giving Insight And Revelations Into God's Secrets And Mysteries (Amos 3:4-7; Romans 6:26; 2 Corinthians 12:1-7; Psalm 91:1; Psalm 18:11; Exodus 20:21; John 3:1-8; John 4:24; 1 Corinthians 14:6; Galatians 1:12; Galatians 2:2; Ephesians 1:17).
