1 Timothy 1:3b-11
YOU (Believers) may CHARGE Some (Unbelievers) that They (Unbelievers) TEACH NO Other Doctrine, NOR Give Heed to Fables and Endless Genealogies, which cause disputes, rather than Godly Edification, which is IN Faith. Now The Purpose of The Commandment is Love FROM a Pure Heart, FROM a Good Conscience, and FROM Sincere Faith, from which Some (Unbelievers), having STRAYED, have Turned Aside to Idle Talk, Desiring to be Teachers of The Law (The Old Covenant), understanding NEITHER what They (Unbelievers) say NOR The Things which They (Unbelievers) Affirm.
But We (Believers) KNOW that The Law (The Old Covenant) is Good IF One uses it Lawfully, KNOWING THIS: that The Law (The Old Covenant) is NOT MADE for a Righteous Person (Believers), BUT FOR The Lawless (Unbelievers) and Insubordinate (Unbelievers), FOR The Ungodly (Unbelievers) and FOR sinners (Unbelievers), FOR The Unholy (Unbelievers) and Profane (Unbelievers), FOR Murderers (Unbelievers) of Fathers and Murderers (Unbelievers) of Mothers, FOR Manslayers (Unbelievers), FOR Fornicators (Unbelievers), FOR Sodomites (Unbelievers), FOR Kidnappers (Unbelievers), FOR Liars (Unbelievers), FOR Perjurers (Unbelievers), and if there is ANY Other Thing that is CONTRARY TO Sound Doctrine (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), according to The Glorious Gospel of The BLESSED GOD (GOD Almighty), which was COMMITTED TO My (Believers) Trust.
Therefore I (Believers) EXHORT, first of all, that Supplications, Prayers, Intercessions, and Giving of Thanks BE MADE for All Men, for This IS Good and Acceptable IN The SIGHT of GOD (GOD Almighty) Our (Believers) Savior, Who DESIRES All Men to BE SAVED and to COME to The Knowledge of The TRUTH (The Gospel of Jesus Christ). For there is One GOD (GOD Almighty) and One Mediator (Jesus Christ) BETWEEN GOD (GOD Almighty) and Men, The Man Christ Jesus, Who GAVE Himself (Jesus Christ) a RANSOM for All, to BE TESTIFIED in Due Time.
1 Timothy 3:15b-16
I (Believers) write so that YOU (Believers) may KNOW how YOU (Believers) Ought to Conduct Yourself IN The HOUSE of GOD (GOD Almighty), which IS The Church of The LIVING GOD (GOD Almighty), The Pillar and Ground of The TRUTH. And Without Controversy, Great IS The Mystery of Godliness: GOD (GOD Almighty) was MANIFESTED IN The Flesh (Jesus Christ), JUSTIFIED IN The Spirit (The Holy Spirit), SEEN by Angels (GOD Almighty’s Holy Angels), PREACHED among The Gentiles (Non-Jewish Believers), BELIEVED ON IN The World, RECEIVED UP IN GLORY.
Now The Spirit (The Holy Spirit) Expressly SAYS that IN Latter Times Some (Unbelievers) will DEPART FROM The Faith (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), giving heed to Deceiving Spirits and Doctrines of Demons, Speaking Lies in Hypocrisy, having Their (Unbelievers) Own Conscience SEARED with a Hot Iron, Forbidding to Marry, and Commanding to ABSTAIN from Foods, which GOD (GOD Almighty) CREATED to be RECEIVED with Thanksgiving by Those (Believers) who BELIEVE and KNOW The TRUTH (The Gospel of Jesus Christ). For Every Creature of GOD (GOD Almighty) IS GOOD, and NOTHING is to BE REFUSED, IF it is RECEIVED with Thanksgiving; for it is SANCTIFIED BY The WORD of GOD (GOD Almighty) and Prayer.
If YOU (Believers) INSTRUCT The Brethren (Believers) IN These Things, YOU (Believers) will be a Good Minister of Jesus Christ, NOURISHED IN The WORDS of Faith and of The Good DOCTRINE, which YOU (Believers) have Carefully Followed. But REJECT Profane and Old Wives’ Fables, and EXERCISE Yourself (Believers) TOWARD Godliness. For Bodily Exercise profits a little, BUT Godliness IS PROFITABLE for All Things, having PROMISE of The Life that NOW IS and of that (Eternal Life) which IS TO COME. This is a Faithful Saying and Worthy of All Acceptance. For to THIS END, We (Believers) BOTH Labor and Suffer Reproach, BECAUSE We (Believers) TRUST IN The LIVING GOD (GOD Almighty), Who IS The Savior of All Men, ESPECIALLY of Those (Believers) who BELIEVE. These Things Command and Teach.
Let NO ONE despise Your (Believers) Youth, but BE AN EXAMPLE to The Believers IN Word, IN Conduct, IN Love, IN Spirit, IN Faith, IN Purity. Give Attention TO Reading, TO Exhortation, TO Doctrine. Do NOT neglect The Gift (The Spiritual Gifts) that is IN YOU (Believers). Meditate on These Things; Give Yourself (Believers) ENTIRELY to Them, that Your (Believers) Progress may be EVIDENT to All. TAKE HEED TO Yourself (Believers) and TO The Doctrine (The Gospel of Jesus Christ). Continue IN Them, for in DOING THIS, YOU (Believers) Will SAVE BOTH Yourself (Believers) and Those (Believers) Who HEAR YOU (Believers).
If ANYONE (Unbelievers) teaches otherwise and does NOT CONSENT to Wholesome Words, EVEN The WORDS of Our LORD Jesus Christ, and to The Doctrine (The Gospel of Jesus Christ) which ACCORDS with Godliness, he (Unbelievers) is Proud, Knowing NOTHING, but is Obsessed with Disputes and Arguments over words, from which come Envy, Strife, Reviling, Evil Suspicions, Useless Wranglings of Men (Unbelievers) of Corrupt Minds and Destitute of The TRUTH (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), who suppose that Godliness is a Means of Gain. From Such (Unbelievers) WITHDRAW Yourself (Believers).
But YOU (Believers), O Man (Believers) of GOD (GOD Almighty), FLEE These Things and PURSUE Righteousness, Godliness, Faith, Love, Patience, Gentleness. FIGHT The Good FIGHT of Faith, Lay Hold on ETERNAL LIFE, to which YOU (Believers) were also CALLED and have CONFESSED The Good CONFESSION, in The Presence of Many Witnesses (Believers). I (Believers) URGE YOU (Believers) IN The SIGHT of GOD (GOD Almighty) Who GIVES LIFE to All Things, and BEFORE Christ Jesus Who WITNESSED The Good CONFESSION before Pontius Pilate, that YOU (Believers) KEEP This Commandment WITHOUT Spot, Blameless UNTIL Our LORD Jesus Christ’s APPEARING, which He (Jesus Christ) Will MANIFEST in His (Jesus Christ’s) Own Time, He (Jesus Christ) Who IS The BLESSED and ONLY Potentate, The King of kings and LORD of lords, Who ALONE has Immortality, Dwelling IN UNAPPROACHABLE LIGHT, whom NO Man has SEEN or CAN SEE, to Whom (Jesus Christ) BE Honor and EVERLASTING POWER. Amen.
GUARD what was COMMITTED to Your (Believers) TRUST, AVOIDING The Profane and Idle Babblings and Contradictions of what is FALSELY called Knowledge, by professing it (False Knowledge) Some (Unbelievers) have STRAYED Concerning The Faith (The Gospel of Jesus Christ).
YOU (Believers) therefore, BE STRONG in The Grace that is IN Christ Jesus. YOU (Believers) therefore MUST ENDURE Hardship as a Good Soldier of Jesus Christ. NO ONE (Believers) Engaged IN Warfare ENTANGLES Himself (Believers) WITH The Affairs of This Life (The Natural Body), that He (Believers) may PLEASE Him (Jesus Christ) Who ENLISTED Him (Believers) as a Soldier. And also if ANYONE Competes IN Athletics, He (Believers) is NOT Crowned UNLESS He (Believers) Competes according to The Rules. The Hardworking Farmer MUST BE First to Partake of The Crops. Consider what I (Believers) say, and May The LORD (Jesus Christ) GIVE YOU (Believers) Understanding IN All Things.
Nevertheless The Solid Foundation of GOD (GOD Almighty) STANDS, having This SEAL: “The LORD KNOWS Those (Believers) Who ARE His,” and, “Let EVERYONE Who NAMES The Name of Christ (Jesus Christ) Depart FROM Iniquity.”
And a Servant of The LORD (Jesus Christ) MUST NOT quarrel but BE GENTLE to All, Able to Teach, Patient, in Humility Correcting Those (Unbelievers) who are in opposition, if GOD (GOD Almighty) perhaps will GRANT Them (Unbelievers) Repentance, so that They (Unbelievers) may KNOW The TRUTH (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), and that They (Unbelievers) may COME to Their (Unbelievers) Senses and ESCAPE The SNARE of the devil (Satan), having been TAKEN CAPTIVE by him (Satan) to DO his (Satan’s) will.
But KNOW THIS, that IN The Last Days Perilous Times will COME: For Men (Unbelievers) will be Lovers of Themselves, Lovers of Money, Boasters, Proud, Blasphemers, Disobedient to Parents, Unthankful, Unholy, Unloving, Unforgiving, Slanderers, WITHOUT Self-Control, Brutal, Despisers of GOOD, Traitors, Headstrong, Haughty, Lovers of Pleasure rather than Lovers of GOD (GOD Almighty), having a form of Godliness BUT Denying ITS POWER. And FROM Such People (Unbelievers) TURN AWAY! For of This Sort are Those (Unbelievers) who creep into households and make captives of Gullible Women LOADED DOWN with sins, LED AWAY by Various Lusts, Always Learning and NEVER able to COME to The Knowledge of The TRUTH (The Gospel of Jesus Christ). Now as Jannes and Jambres RESISTED Moses, so do These (Unbelievers) also RESIST The TRUTH (The Gospel of Jesus Christ): Men (Unbelievers) of Corrupt Minds, Disapproved Concerning The Faith; BUT They (Unbelievers) will progress NO further, for Their (Unbelievers) FOLLY will BE MANIFEST to All, as Theirs (Jannes and Jambres) also was.
Yes, and All (Believers) who DESIRE to Live Godly IN Christ Jesus will SUFFER PERSECUTION. But Evil Men (Unbelievers) and Impostors (Unbelievers) will grow worse and worse, Deceiving and Being Deceived. But YOU (Believers) MUST continue in The Things which YOU (Believers) have LEARNED and BEEN ASSURED OF, KNOWING FROM Whom (Jesus Christ) YOU (Believers) have LEARNED them, and that from childhood YOU (Believers) have KNOWN The Holy Scriptures, which are ABLE TO MAKE YOU (Believers) WISE for Salvation THROUGH Faith which IS IN Christ Jesus.
ALL SCRIPTURE (The Holy Bible) IS GIVE BY INSPIRATION of GOD (GOD Almighty), and IS Profitable FOR Doctrine, FOR Reproof, FOR Correction, FOR Instruction in Righteousness, that The Man (Believers) of GOD (GOD Almighty) may be COMPLETE, THOROUGHLY EQUIPPED For Every Good Work.
I (Believers) CHARGE YOU (Believers) therefore BEFORE GOD (GOD Almighty) and The LORD Jesus Christ, Who Will JUDGE The Living and The Dead AT His (Jesus Christ’s) Appearing AND His (Jesus Christ’s) Kingdom: PREACH The WORD (The Gospel of Jesus Christ)! BE READY in Season and out of Season. Convince, Rebuke, Exhort, WITH All Longsuffering and Teaching. For The Time Will COME when They (Unbelievers) will NOT endure Sound Doctrine (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), BUT according to Their (Unbelievers) Own Desires, because They (Unbelievers) have Itching Ears, They (Unbelievers) will HEAP UP for Themselves (Unbelievers) Teachers; and They (Unbelievers) will TURN Their (Unbelievers) Ears AWAY FROM The TRUTH (The Gospel of Jesus Christ), and be Turned Aside to Fables. But YOU (Believers) BE WATCHFUL in All Things, ENDURE Afflictions, DO The Work of an Evangelist, FULFILL Your (Believers) Ministry.
Fellow Believers, We ARE Jesus Christ’s LIGHT upon This World (Satan’s World), May Jesus Christ’s LIGHT Shine so Brightly, THROUGH Us (Believers), that People SEE Jesus Christ, and NOT Us (Believers). So, Let Us (Believers) get out there and Share The Gospel of Jesus Christ with EVERYONE, who has Ears to HEAR and Eyes to SEE, The TRUTH, because We (Believers) want Them to Join Us (Believers) IN GOD Almighty’s Immediate Presence, WITH Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, GOD Almighty’s Holy Angels, and All The Rest of The Children (Believers) of GOD Almighty, for Eternity, Forever.
