Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

December 1 - Morning

"Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith.”

- First Timothy 6:20-21

Guard the Deposit    

Paul’s final words to Timothy in this book come back to the apostolic revelation, or, the
Word of God, that has been “entrusted” to Timothy. Timothy is told to “guard what has been
entrusted to your care.” The English phrase “guard what has been entrusted” is literally
“guard the deposit.” The word “deposit” is from paratheke a banking term in the Greek that
refers to a sum of money placed into the safe keeping of a bank. Obviously, the Word of God
itself is secure, but the presentation of the Word of God can easily be mixed with other things.

Timothy is told to turn away from “godless chatter” and “what is falsely called knowledge.”
The “godless chatter” is a reference to pseudo-religious talk that was, one, “godless” even though
it used Christian words and appeals to emotions; and, two, “chatter” which meant it was empty
of any useful substance for the Christian life. The reference to “what is falsely called knowledge”
is indeed a form of “knowledge” or “information,” but this was cultural knowledge that had crept
into the church ministry. This most likely was the logic, views, values, etc. of Greek philosophy
that was common in Ephesus. The mixing of Greek philosophy with Christian doctrine
(or, socially accepted concepts with the transforming power of God’s Truth) was developing
into what would become  known as the false branch of Christianity called Gnosticism.
John would write against Gnosticism later as would followers of John’s disciples, such as Irenaeus, and other early church writers.

Timothy must teach the Word of God. But, he must also be able to discern what is not the Word of God, but is instead merely cultural ideas or actual false doctrine and heretical teaching.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"A man who does not know how to be angry does not know how to be good.  And a man that does not know how to be shaken to his heart’s core with indignation over things evil is either a fungus
or a wicked man."

- Henry Ward Beecher

Something to Ponder??
Justin Martyr wrote in 160 AD: "When the Child was born in Bethlehem, since Joseph could not find a lodging in that village, he took up his quarters in a certain cave near the village."
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information



'esh (Hb) - Fire (Eng) - the Hebrew word 'esh is the word for "fire" and refers to the visible
portion of fire or the flame. 'Esh is associated with God and the manifestation of his
presence through out the Old Testament.

  The Roman Empire had more than 50,000 miles of paved roads. Some of these roads still exist today. To build the 10-12 foot wide roads a trench three feet deep was dug and filled with stones. These stones were covered with smaller stones cemented together. The top layer of the road was covered with flat stones fit together to form a flat surface with the spaces between the pavement stones being filled in with small pebbles.
