  • 38. Review The kingdom itself willnever be shaken. So it behooves us to seizeGod’s unmerited approval in Jesus, helping us to serve God acceptably.
  • 39. Review Isaiah 34:4 And all the host of heaven shall bedissolved, and the heavensshall be rolled together asa scroll: and all their hostshall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.

  • 50. Stopped here 9-23-20124 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
  • 51. Stopped here 9-23-2012 4 Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, ofgreat price, and especially dear) in all things. And thus let themarriage bed be undefiled (keptundishonored); for God will judge and punish the unchaste [all guilty of sexual vice] and adulterous.
  • 52. The Bible strictly condemnssex outside of the marriage commitment (fornicators and adulterers God will judge). But the Bible celebrates sexual love within the commitment of marriage
  • 53. Fornication and adultery are not synonymous in the New Testament: adultery impliesunfaithfulness by either party to the marriage vow, while the word translated “fornication” covers a widerange of sexual irregularities.
  • 54. God will judge and condemn fornicationand infractions of the marriage-bond, no matter how much social sentiment may condone them.
  • 55. The object here is to statethat "honor" is to be shown to the marriage relation.It is not to be undervalued by the pretence of the superior purity of a state of celibacy
  • 56. 1 Timothy 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which Godhath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

  • 60. 1 Kings 6:13 And I will live among the Israelites and will not abandon my people Israel
  • 61. Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take nothought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
  • 62. I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee - Thesewords were, in sum, spoken to Joshua, Joshua 1:5 : "As I was with Moses, so will I be with thee; I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."
  • 63. There are no less than five negatives in this short sentence, and these connected with two verbs and one pronoun twice repeated.
  • 64. 5 Let your character or moraldisposition be free from love ofmoney [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfiedwith your present [circumstances and with what you have];
  • 65. ...for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way failyou nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor [e]let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
  • 66. 6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fearwhat man shall do unto me.

  • 68. Philippians 4:11-13: Not that I speak in regard to need, for Ihave learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know howto be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in allthings I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
  • 69. 7 Remember them which have the rule over you,who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
  • 70. We are told to recognizeand follow godly leadership in the body of Christ,leadership that is shown to be legitimate byfaithfulness to the word of God and by godly conduct.
  • 71. Paul advised Timothy alongthe same lines: Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue inthem, for in doing this youwill save both yourself and those who hear you. (1 Timothy 4:16)
  • 72. Such leaders should be recognized (remember those) and followed. Justas much as a church needsgodly leaders, it also needs godly followers.
  • 73. 8 Jesus Christthe same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
  • 74. 9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart beestablished with grace; notwith meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
  • 75. 10 We have an altar,whereof they have no right to eatwhich serve the tabernacle.
  • 76. 11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood isbrought into the sanctuaryby the high priest for sin, are burned without [outside] the camp.
  • 77. 12 Wherefore Jesus also,that he might sanctify thepeople with his own blood,suffered without the gate.
  • 78. 13 Let us go forth thereforeunto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. 14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
  • 79. 15 By him thereforelet us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lipsgiving thanks to his name.
  • 80. 16 But to do good and to communicate forget not:for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
  • 81. 17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watchfor your souls, as they thatmust give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
  • 82. 18 Pray for us:for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly.
  • 83. 19 But I beseech you the rather to do this, that Imay be restored to you the sooner
  • 84. 20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus,that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
  • 85. 21 Make you perfect inevery good work to do his will, working in you thatwhich is wellpleasing in his sight, through JesusChrist; to whom be gloryfor ever and ever. Amen.
  • 86. 22 And I beseech you, brethren, suffer the word of exhortation:for I have written a letter unto you in few words.
  • 87. 23 Know ye that our brother Timothy is set at liberty;with whom, if he come shortly, I will see you.
  • 88. 24 Salute all them that have the rule over you, and all the saints.They of Italy salute you.
  • 89. 25 Grace be with you all. Amen.
