Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 1:10


1:10 Manstealers - The worst of all thieves, in comparison of whom, highwaymen and housebreakers are innocent. What then are most traders in negroes, procurers of servants for America, and all who list soldiers by lies, tricks, or enticements?

    Steve morrow you know why the law is not made for people of faith? Because the just live by faith. If the spirit of G-D is leading you he will never lead you into sin. That is why I believe a man can walk in perfection. If Jesus said, "be ye perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect." It must be possible...consider yourself dead but alive unto the L-RD!!!

    To AIM - God HAD to use Deborah - because there was no man to stand in the gap. The time of the judges was Israel's lowest - as far as 'men of God' were concerned. They were not to have judges - God was their judge. They were not to have a king (Saul, etc.). but they were God's chosen and He loved them, so He went along with them AT TIMES, but they paid for all their faithlessness. cont.

    To AIM - Jer. 35:19; Eze. 22:30; God is not unreasonable; we can reason with him. Deborah was chosen because there was no man to stand in the gap, but God's preference was for a man. Deborah was a PROPHETESS, like Anna of Luke. In Judges 4:6 Deborah rebukes Barak, the armies leader for not doing God's will. So God told her to go with him - if that was the only way He could get His will done.

    To Breeze - THANK-YOU so much for pointing out the scripture on pastors, bishops are to have one wife. I've known women weren't to usurp authority, but hadn't noticed this scripture. It makes it so OBVIOUS!!
    Pastors, etc. ".....are to have one WIFE;" not pastors, etc. are to have one HUSBAND. I can't thank you enough for knowing who Jesus is.
  • Mark verrell
    these words are astounding MIRACULOUS INSPIRING HOPE FILLED (when one reads of the reactions of some in society who offer nothing other than worse retribution and punishment to the everyday occurrences of crimes described in these passages 1 Timothy 8-11 IT IS AWESOME THE HOPE IN THESE SCRIPTURES
