The Apostle Paul tells Timothy in
1 Tim. 6:20-21
V.20 O Timothy, GUARD what has been ENTRUSTED to you avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is FALSELY called “knowledge,”
V.21 Which some have professed and thus gone ASTRAY from the faith. Grace be with you.
Therefore, it’s imperative for us read our bible every day, so that we know if the Word is being misquoted and another doctrine is being presented that could deceive you.
There is a day coming when men will NOT ENDURE sound doctrine, and will want to have their ears tickled and accumulate teachers in accordance with their OWN desires. (We are experiencing some of that now)
GUARD WHAT JESUS HAS ENTRUSTED YOU WITH
He has ENTRUSTED you also with His Word and His call on YOUR life, that no one else can fulfill but YOU.
From time to time I run into people who will make a comment about the Word of God as they misquote it, and say that it was written by men that make mistakes.
I have been a student of the Word for almost 30 years. There’s an obligation that I feel to share the truth with someone misquoting the word so that they will not be deceived. God has ENTRUSTED revelation of His Word to me not to argue it, but to help bring TRUE Light to it for those who are hungry for righteousness and younger than I am in the faith and in the Lord.
I share with them that the bible was written by men who were INSPIRED by the Holy Spirit and Moved by God. To back that up; I share
2 Peter 1:20-21
V.20 But know this first of all, that NO prophecy of scripture is a matter of ONE’S OWN interpretation,
V.21 For NO prophecy was ever made by an act of HUMAN WILL, but men MOVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT spoke from God.
2 Peter 3:16-18
V.16 and also in all of his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things HARD TO UNDERSTAND, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do the rest of the scriptures, to their own destruction.
V.17 YOU therefore, beloved, knowing this BEFOREHAND, be ON YOUR GUARD so that you are NOT carried away by the ERROR of UNPRINCIPLED men, and fall from your own steadfastness.
V.18 BUT GROW IN the GRACE and KNOWLEDGE of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, To Him be the GLORY, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
Galatians 1:8 says; that even if we, or an ANGEL from heaven, should preach to you A GOSPEL CONTRARY to what we have preached to you, let him be accursed!
2 Peter 2:1 says, “but false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will SECRETLY introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
What many people don’t know it that wisdom and knowledge are ONLY REVEALED “IN CHRIST JESUS” NOT man’s understanding and interpretation.
Colossians 2:2-3 says, “that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the FULL ASSURANCE of understanding, resulting in a TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD’S MYSTERY, that is, Christ Himself,
V.3 IN WHOM ARE HIDDEN “ALL” the TREASURES of WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE.”
Please GUARD what God has ENTRUSTED to you. There is much work to be done for the kingdom’s sake in bringing in people who’ve never heard of Him or even His very NAME! God has called you and equipped you for the WORK OF THE MINISTRY! Will you answer the call?
He is telling the ranks to fall in line. As a believer you were enlisted in God’s army, respect Him and what He has ENTRUSTED you with. Jesus is working with you to bring this to pass.
