James 5

James 5 Those who seek and focus on physical wealth and pleasures, instead of on the spiritual riches of the Word of God, will be perverted away from the Word of God and will compromise with God’s Word to gain worldly riches; as worldly riches becomes their idol. Physical riches have no lasting value since […]

Hebrews 11

Hebrews 10

The Mosaic sacrificial law which allowed the physical high priest access to the Most Holy Place only once a year and only with physical sacrifices; could not make the people perfect before God. Hebrews 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can […]

Hebrews 9

The physical tabernacle and temple were built according to the pattern Christ showed Moses, which was a type of the heavenly Temple.

2 Timothy 3 – 4

2 Timothy 3 In Second Timothy 3 Paul issues a strong indictment against today’s brethren. Paul now directly warns us about the last days before Christ comes: Telling us what it will be like in the world and in the latter day spiritual Ekklesia. These things all have their spiritual counterparts. 2 Timothy 3:1 This […]

2 Timothy 2

2 Timothy 2 Paul encourages Timothy to “Be Strong,” to zealously learn and live by every Word of and the Will of God the Father in all things. Brethren, let us all do likewise for God calls to us: Be Strong and Persevere, My Son! 2 Timothy 2:1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in […]

1 Timothy 5 – 6

1 Timothy 5 Instructions on how elders are to treat the brethren. For many years this instruction about elders has been misapplied to falsely insist that no minister is to be rebuked for their sins. Paul is forbidding bullying and is instructing the ministry to treat older people with the respect and honor due to […]

1 Timothy 4

1 Timothy 4 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; 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; This is fulfilled in the spiritual Ekklesia today, notably in their […]

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

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 these qualifications, which is a main cause of the doctrinal drifting and accelerating apostasy of the past decades. We are ALL called to be priests […]

2 Thessalonians 1 – 3
