1 Timothy 4: False Doctrines Of Demons Which "Kill" Christians Who Believe Them
In 1 Timothy Chapter 4 Paul Warned Christian Against Satanic Inspired Doctrines. This Article Will Examine 1 Timothy 4:1-16.
Please Read 1 Timothy 4:1-16. The Authorized King James Version Will Be Used.
1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
The "Latter Times" Include These "Last Days" That We Humans Are Currently Living In (2 Timothy 3:1). God's Holy Spirit "Spoke Expressively (Prophesized-2 Peter 1:20-21) That In Our Time Christians Would Disobey (Depart From) The Faith Of Jesus Christ. Christians Would Be Beguiled (Tempted Into Sin) By The Fleshly Seductions Of Devils And Demonic Spirits (Genesis 3:13; Genesis 3:1-15; 2 Corinthians 11:3; Matthew 4:1-11).
Many Of Earth's Modern Christian Religions Are Demonic. Their Doctrine And Supernatural Events Are Of Satan (2 Thessalonians 2:1-17; Revelation 12:9; John 8:32-44).
1Timothy 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
These "christian" Men And Women Of God Deceive And Lie As Satan Their Father Does. They Preach A Seemingly Spiritual Message But Hypocritically Follow Their Selfish And Sinful Flesh. They Are So Corrupt That Their Conscience Can Not Be Corrected By God's Word (Matthew 23:1-39; John 8:32-44).
1Timothy 4:3 Forbidding to marry, [and commanding] to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 1Timothy 4:4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 1Timothy 4:5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
The Bible Informs Us That Anyone Who Forbids Marriage Is Of The Devil (1 Timothy 4:1,3). The Bible Also Makes Perfectly Clear That There Is No Need To Abstain From Meats (Acts 10:9-16).
These "Christian" Doctrines Are "Doctrines Of Devils" And Have Apostated From The Faith Of Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 4:1, 3).
According To 1 Timothy 4:3 A Christian Who Believes In Jesus And Knows The Truth Can Eat And/Or Marry As The Truth (Jesus God) Dictates (John 3:16; John 8:32-36; John 14:4-7; John 17:17).
Christians Must Always Approach God With Thanksgiving (Psalm 69:30). God's Word And Christian Prayer Sanctifies Marriage And Food.
1Timothy 4:6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
Christians Must Be Built Up (Nourished) In God's Word Which Increases Their Faith. God's Word Is Truth And Is Good (God Approved) Doctrine (John 17:17; John 1:1; Ephesians 6:10-18).
1Timothy 4:7 But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself [rather] unto godliness.
God Hates Gossiping And Fables. Christians Are Only To Think On And Speak About Holiness (Godliness) And Truth (Proverbs 6:16-19; Philippians 4:4-8).
1Timothy 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. 1Timothy 4:9 This [is] a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
The Apostle Paul Attacks Human Vanity In The Book Of 1 Timothy. Humans Want To Appear Attractive In The Physical. Paul Reminds Christians That This Is Of Little "Profit" (Benefit). Paul Reminds Christians That Spiritual Godliness Benefits Christians In This Life And In God's Heavenly Life To Come (John 3:16).
1Timothy 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. 1Timothy 4:11 These things command and teach.
Christian Who Labour For Christ Can Expect Trials And Report. Christian Faith Means That We Trust In God Who Saves All Humans. Yet Only Humans Who Believe In Jesus Will Be Saved Into Heaven's Eternity (Proverbs 3:5-6; Matthew 16:21-28; John 3:16).
1Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
It Appeared That Certain Christians Refused To Respect The "Young" Timothy. Carnal Minded Christians Will Always Find "Reasons" Not To Obey The Holy Spirit's Leadership. Paul Admonished Timothy Not To Focus On Those Who "Despised" His Youth. Paul Encouraged Timothy To Be An Example Despite The Opposition(s).
Paul Advised Timothy To Watch The Words He Spoke, How He Conversed, How He Loved And Helped Others, How He Connected With The Holy Spirit, How He Displayed Faith In God And How He Remained Pure Before The Lord.
1Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
Paul Also Advised Timothy To Be In Attendance Where The Reading And Exhortation Of God's Doctrine (Of Jesus Christ) Was Being Taught Or Preached.
1Timothy 4:14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
The Gift Of Prophecy Is Essential For Each And Every Christian. Jesus, God, And The Holy Spirit Are The "Spirit Of Prophecy" (2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 19:10). I Recently Left A Church Which Opposed The Spirit Of Prophecy. They Were "Blind (Delusion)" To The Nearness Of The Rapture And Revealing Of The Man Of Sin. They Were Totally Pleased With This Beast And This World (2 Thessalonians 2:1-17).
Timothy Apparently Inherited This "Gift Of Prophecy" By The "Laying On Of Hands" Of The Church Presbytery (Elders).
1Timothy 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. 1Timothy 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
Christians Are To Be Wholly (Fully) Involved With God's Biblical Doctrines. They Are To Meditate On God's Word Extensively (Psalm 1:2; Psalm 63:6). This Is The Only Way The Holy Spirit Can Begin To Renew, Transform And Conform The Mind Of Christians Into The Mind Of Jesus Christ (Romans 12:1; Philippians 2:4-12; John 3:1-8; John 4:24; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54; John 17:17; John 6:63; John 1:1; Ephesians 6:10-18).
Others Will Be Saved When We Personally Develop "God's Doctrine" With In Ourselves. In 1996 The Holy Spirit Delivered From A Religous Cult. I Went Through A Period Of Disillusionment. Yet I Eagerly Studied The Bible Daily. My Place Of Employment Had Many Christians.
At That Time I Was Still Very Much In The World. Yet One Person Would Always Come To Me With Bible And God Questions. I Wondered Why This Person Would Come To "Sinning" Me When The Building Was Full Of Christians. This Experience Proved That Paul's Admonition In 1 Timothy 4:16 Was Correct.
Most Christians Are Unaware That What They Believe Will Either Bless Them Into Heaven Or "Slay" Them Into Damnation (Matthew 25:1-12). May We All Seek God's Holy Spirit, Learn God's Truth And Enter Heaven With Jesus Christ (John 14:26; John 14:4-7; John 17:17; Psalm 119:105; Matthew 7:13-29; Matthew 25:1-12).
