In this episode:
These days it can hard to tell the difference in what is real and fake.
The same goes for knowing lies versus Truth. The best way to know when a lie is present is by knowing the Truth without waiver. This comes when you lean in and see what the Word of God says. Satan will twist scripture and it takes resolve and determination to not fall into the traps.
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. Click To Tweet2 Timothy 2:2
There’s your scripture. Second Timothy, two, two lot of twos this week. I get it guys. I’ll go ahead and apologize. Front. I have had a terrible cold I’m I’m fighting. I’m trying to battle through it for this, for this week. So I apologize. My voice sounds a little bit off. I’m gonna try to muscle through this guys.
I promise you. I’m gonna do my best. Hang with me. Okay. Now, where is second Timothy? It’s a bit tricky in the new Testament. Okay, so you have, uh, the Fon first and second Seon. And then you have Titus, what’s kind of in between there. Okay. So this, so this is, you may have to go to your table contents, but it’s in you a new Testament.
It’s back there. I promise you if you go to first and second felo, you’ll find it. Okay. And this is a letter that Paul wrote to Timothy. We need to just know that out front Paul wrote to Timothy, right? And I’ve talked about this in other, um, episodes two, find your Paul find you Baras find you Timothy. So Paul was basically like a, a father, son type relationship.
He loved Timothy. Okay. And remember, Jesus warned us about false prophets, right. And Christ that will try to mislead us. Okay. So many false teachers were trying to twist the message and that happens all the time. Paul knew that after his death, the wolves. They would go on, come out and start attacking even more.
So he was basically arming up Timothy. He was getting him ready, the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses and trustees to faithful people who you’ll be able to teach others also. Okay. So do you feel this way right now? You know, SA I get guys, you have to know this Satan.
He wants to steal, kill and destroy period, period. So Paul was putting extra emphasis here on the truth, on the truth, and he taught the truth and that should be remembered. This is what he was just hammering into Tim. Okay. I talked to you the truth. Remember it, utilize it and pass it on. That’s it so important.
And he was correcting the Jewish, uh, legalism and redirecting it all right. Back to what? Back to the truth and think about this. The only way that you can recognize a fake is to know the, the true, right, the right, the, the true item. Okay. It’s just like, when, when you’re trying to, to look at a, a counterfeit, how do you identify a counterfeit?
You have to know what a true dollar or a hundred dollar bill looks like, same thing here. So how do we do that? How do we do this as a, as a Christian leader, you have to spend time with God, every. Every day. Now this is Paul’s last known epistle and he is motivating us. Right? He is really trying to give us that rally cry for everybody to be strong in the grace.
That is Jesus Christ, right. He’s encouraging and, and trying to get us to hold fast to the unchangeable word of guy. And we need to know this Paul’s message, never waver wavered once his entire life. It never wa wave. And he wrote with such conviction and confidence, and we need that as Christian men, despite many false Christ out there, false prophets, the wolves that are out there, there are relentless attacks of the enemy, right.
Paul stood strong on the word of God. And so can we, we can, you know, we heard the good news because the gospel was passed on from. Through many witnesses, faithful men and others, and record it for our learnings right here and the holy scripture. So let’s be part of the P of the others, right? The others that Paul’s talking about and trust these to faithful people who will be able to teach others.
Also, let’s be part of that and let’s share the good news of Christ and we just need to be doing, to do this boldly. Look, he was crucified. He’d risen. He has sent it for the redemption of mankind. Whoever believes in him will not perish. That’s gonna have what everlasting life. So guys, second Timothy, two, two, so important.
This is very impactful scripture talking about being a faithful servant and following the word of God. You’ve heard it now. You need to entrust it to faithful men. You are those you are the. And then to teach others also, it’s not enough just to have head knowledge, we need to have heart knowledge. We need to take that heart knowledge and transfer to others.
So guys, this week, what are we gonna be doing? We’re gonna be unpacking a phenomenal book. It’s called a good and faithful servant. Okay. And gas. You need to come back. We’re gonna be talking to this doctor. He wrote a biography of his, of his father. I’m gonna tell you what, it’s a powerful story. Just imagine being able to sit down and do a, a, a to capture your father’s testimony, the way that this man did.
It’s unbelievable, guys. It’s gonna be a little bit of a different episode. I’m gonna go ahead and warn you on Wednesday. It’s gonna be a bit different than what we normally have on online within us, but I think it’s something that you guys are gonna enjoy. I learned a lot for you history buffs out. This is the episode for you for your apologetics out there.
This is the episode for you. Come back on Wednesday and check that out. Okay. Now, you know, every spiritual kickoff, what we wanna do, we recognize that not everybody listening to align within us as a believer, and that’s okay. We love you, but we don’t want you to miss the opportunity. If Christ came back today, if he comes back.
Are you going to heaven? And if you can’t answer that well, please reach out to us email@example.com. Cause here’s the deal. Jesus Christ came to earth as our savior. He was born into, he was born to a Virgin. He was Emmanuel God with us. He performed many miracle. He walked with us. He taught us, he was the teacher.
He was a great rabbi and he paid the penalty for our sin. And if you listening to this, you are a center. So am I, I’m the chief center and there’s no way there’s no way to get to heaven except through Christ. So you have an opportunity right now, right now to accept Christ. Because, what did he do? He went to the cross.
He paid the ultimate penalty for our sin. His blood was the price via atonement, the propitiation, the payment that satisfies for our sin. And then he, they laid him in a tomb. And then guess what? Three days later was he still there? No, he has risen. We worship a risen Lord. Not a dead guy. He overcame death.
He walked amongst us. Then he ascended to the right hand of the father and no one gets to the father except through him. So guys, if you haven’t made that commitment in your life, if you haven’t given your life to Christ, I beg you. I urge you. It’s the best thing you’ll ever do because when you do, he’s gonna send down the holy.
That holy spirit is going to guide you direct you, and it’s gonna give you the one thing everybody’s searching for peace. The peace that passes all understanding only comes. I’m a relationship with Jesus Christ. So admit that you’re a center. Believe, believe that Jesus is. And confess him as your savior.
