THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO TIMOTHY
SOUL RESTORATION - SOUL TRAINING BIBLE TRUTH
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR SOUL ADVENTURE
It's a joy to have you back again to share some
Daily Bread today. Paul has touched on some
interesting subjects in this letter to Timothy, and
there's sure to be more coming up, so let's plow ahead
and see what's next.
Paul tells Timothy that the
Holy Spirit explicitly says that in the latter times (End
Times) some people will leave the Faith, following evil spirits and the
teachings of devils, telling lies in false pretenses (false claims), having
their conscience seared with a hot iron. Paul refers to this as a
Hungry for a little Daily Bread Crumb? Let's find out
just exactly what the definition of the word conscience is, because
you may notice that this word is used quite frequently in the New Testament.
Conscience is the sense or consciousness of the moral goodness or
blameworthiness of one's own conduct, intentions, or character together with
a feeling of obligation to do right or be good. Now, to have your conscience
seared with a hot iron, would have to be one of the worst things a Christian
could imagine. Your sense of right and wrong would be destroyed ...
You would have no conscience, no morals.
SOUL RESTORATION / SOUL TRAINING BIBLE TRUTH
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR SOUL TIPS
This passage reminds me of what Paul wrote in Hebrews:
For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have
tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy
Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the
world to come, If they shall
fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves
the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Now, don't forget, this letter is written to Timothy, who
is the minister of a church, so Paul is warning him about things to watch
out for. One of the things Paul says is that in the last days, those who
have fallen from the faith will forbid to marry. Just one note, we
know that the Romans practice this false doctrine to this day requiring them
to take a vow of celibacy and forbidding their clergymen and women to marry.
Let's see now, what else does Paul say will happen in the last days. (Don't forget that he
said the Holy Spirit had spoken these things specifically.)
They will command to abstain from meats (foods) which God created to be received
with thanksgiving of those who believe and know the TRUTH. For every
creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it is received with
thanksgiving because it is made holy by the Word of God and prayer.
SOUL RESTORATION AND SOUL TRAINING BIBLE FACTS
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR SOUL INSTRUCTIONS
also talks about this in
Romans 14:14, 20
Corinthians 10:25. You'll also find that if you look back into the Book
of Acts, Chapter 10,
Peter had a vision concerning this, which was an analogy of God's acceptance
of the Gentiles as His people too. God was showing Peter that any man that
God has cleansed, is not unclean, but holy. This is also another perfect
example of how God's Word, many times, relates to more than one
If you remind the brethren of these things, you'll be a good
minister of Jesus Christ, educated in the words of faith and of good
doctrine, that you have carefully followed. But refuse profane and old
wives' tales and exercise (train) yourself instead to be godly. Bodily
exercise profits little, but godliness is profitable in all things, having
promise of the life that is now, and is also to come (eternal).
Yes, you did read that correctly, but did you get
the entire meaning of it? Bodily exercise is of little value, but godliness
is valuable in every way, both in this life and life everlasting. How many
people exercise for God? How many people exercise for self, for what others
think, or for what they want
others to think?

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR SOUL NOW
Yes, you're correct, your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit ... (1 Corinthians 6:19),
and you should take care of it, but what does that
mean? It means keep it holy, clean, healthy, pure, protected. It doesn't
mean that it should be made into what is acceptable to mankind. If you
exercise because it's necessary for maintaining good health, so that you can
effectively perform godly deeds, that's one thing. But anything in excess of
that is not being done for God. You can apply the same rules to eating, or
drinking, or anything else that can be done to excess.
This is the truth and worthy of believing. For that reason (the
promise of eternal life), we work and suffer shame, because we trust in the
living God, who is the Savior of all men, namely those who believe. Command
these things and teach. Don't let anyone look down on you because of your
youth, but be an example of the believers, in word, in conversation
(conduct), in charity, in spirit, in faith and in purity.
This is an interesting point that Paul makes. If
you belong to a church that has a young pastor, or if you know or meet a
young person who is apparently gifted in teaching the doctrine of Christ, do
you ever look down over the reading glasses that are teetering on the tip of
your nose at them and think, That young whipper-snapper can't know what he's
talking about. Or how about this, does your pride disallow you to learn from
someone younger than you? I have a few examples for you to ponder on.
SOUL RESTORATION - SOUL TRAINING BIBLE HINTS
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR SOUL FOR GOD
Jesus the Christ
was about 30 years old when He began his ministry (Luke 3:23).
Jeremiah was just a child when the Lord called him
to speak to the nations (Jeremiah 1:7).
Joash was only 7
years old when he became king of Judah and reigned
for 40 years (2 Chronicles 24:1).
Isaiah 11:6, and a little child shall lead them.
Now, don't get me wrong. The elders, the sages, the elderly, the mature, the
aged, seniors, older people, people in their golden years ... They all
deserve our respect, but they are by no means, the only people that God has
appointed to do His bidding.
people who God has chosen to spread His Word have a tremendous
responsibility, as you can see from all the things that Paul is relating to
Timothy. The humiliation from people who don't believe them because of their
youth is definitely a burden they don't need to bear, they're carrying a
great load already.
SOUL RESTORATION & SOUL TRAINING BIBLE STUDY
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR SOUL AND STAY THAT WAY
Isn't it enough that the destiny of some people's souls
lie in their hands, but to add to their burden by looking down on them
because they're youthful or any other reason for that matter is really like
questioning God's judgment in choosing them. Examine your conscience and ask yourself, how
many times have you judged or ignored or patronized one of God's servants
because of their age, economic status, handicaps, being from your home
country (someone you know, or someone from your family, which makes it hard
for you accept their credibility) or any other reason?
You can see now, why Paul found it necessary to forewarn Timothy about such
things. He continues:
Until I visit, give attention to reading, to
preaching, to teaching. Don't neglect the gift that is in you, which was
given to you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hand of the presbytery
(elders). Meditate (contemplate, think) on these things, dedicate yourself
fully to them so that your value is clear to everyone. Take care of yourself
and the doctrine, believe in them, because in doing this, you will save both
yourself and those who hear you.
Once again, Paul has given us many good lessons to apply to our lives and to
pass on to others. Just a reminder before we close, your body returns to
3:19) when the time comes. God doesn't care what you look like (1 Samuel 16:7).
