1 Timothy 2 – 3

1 Timothy 2 Paul admonishes us to pray for all men [including our enemies]. This is often misunderstood as praying for their physical blessing, when we are really to pray that they will sincerely repent and turn towards godly conduct, or at least be peaceable towards the godly. 1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, […]

1 Timothy 1

Paul’s letters to Timothy and Titus give us instructions and qualifications for the ministry. A very large number of today’s ministers have been inappropriately ordained contrary to the scripturally required qualifications, which is a main cause of the doctrinal drifting and accelerating apostasy of the past decades. Every converted person has been called to become […]

2 Thessalonians 1 – 3

2 Thessalonians 1:1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: 1:2 Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5

Paul begins to instruct the pillars of our day about the onset of the tribulation, first teaching that the vast majority will be taken completely by surprise. 1 Thessalonians 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day […]

1 Thessalonians 3 – 4

1 Thessalonians 3 Paul reveals that he is at Athens and is sending this letter by Timothy for the purpose of confirming and establishing the pillars of faith at Thessaloniki. 1 Thessalonians 3:1 Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone; 3:2 And sent Timotheus, our […]

1 Thessalonians 1 – 2

The epistles to the Thessalonians were recorded and preserved for God’s faithful pillars, who stand unshakable on every Word of God; encouraging them in their patient enduring while giving them key prophetic information. While the epistles of Paul are addressed to individual congregations; they are likewise preserved as Holy Scripture and recorded for the instruction […]

Colossians 3 – 4

Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen [risen from the waters of baptism into godliness] with Christ, seek those things which are above [seek godly things and not worldliness], where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God [the Father]. 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth [seek spiritual […]

Colossians 2

Colossians 1

The Book of Colossians was written to the brethren at Colossae and to the brethren of Laodicea; it is therefore a direct message to today’s spiritual Ekklesia; who are for the most part latter day Laodiceans. Paul was the apostle to the Gentiles and everywhere he went he spoke first to the Jews and was […]

Philippians 3 – 4

Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

Philippians 2

Philippians 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind [with Almighty God]. Paul admonishes the Philippians to be […]

Philippians 1

The Philippians lived in the city of Philippi, which is a city near Neapolis in Macedonia.  Paul and Timothy are writing this Epistle together, just like Paul and Timothy wrote to the Colossians together. Philippians 1:1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, […]

Ephesians 6

Ephesians 6:1 Children obey your parents in the Lord (Ex 20:12, Deu 516) for this is right. 6:2 Honour they father and mother which is the first commandment with promise. 6:3 That it may be well with thee and thou must live long on the earth. We have the promise that if we obey our […]

Ephesians 5:1 Be ye, therefore, followers of God as dear children. 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

Ephesians 2

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened [given life], who were dead in trespasses and sin. We were dead, or as good as dead, because we were full of sin and the wages of sin is death. The ultimate result of sin is death. We were as good as dead facing ultimate death for our sins. […]

The Holy Spirit

The word “Holy” means: of or pertaining to God: while the word “Spirit” refers to God as being a spirit:  Therefore the “Holy Spirit” is a reference to  God.  Of course there are other spirits either of loyal angels, or rebellious spirits which are not holy.  A spirit in the Greek is pneuma: wind or […]
