People's Bible Notes for 1 Timothy 6:13


1Ti 6:13 I give thee charge in the sight of God . . . and [before] Christ Jesus. See 1Ti 1:5,18. The whole epistle is a charge, and here at the close Paul renews the charge very solemnly. Who before Pontius Pilate testified a good confession. The Greek may be rendered "under Pontius Pilate". Jesus before the Sanhedrin confessed that he was the Christ, the Son of God (Mt 26:63,64), and on that confession they condemned him to death and hurried him to Pilate for execution (Mt 27:1,2). Ibelieved this is what Paul refers to. Though before Pilate our Lord reaffirmed in substance this same confession (Joh 18:33-37).

Discussion for 1 Timothy 6

  • I, EVEN I, AM THAT MICHAEL ISAAC DALE:
    Hear O man the Spirit of truth. The Holy Father says not the wicked must despise money but he who will hold to GOD, will despise money. It is written, Ye cannot serve GOD and mammon. For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom gave life to them that have it. Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom and to depart from evil is understanding.
  • I am that Michael Isaac Dale
    Verily, whosoever loves my Holy Father despises money and defends it not as ye do here. Ye say, We couldn’t survive a day without money. and, money is important. It is written, No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Ye know Christ is come yet ye praise money, not GOD.
  • Ivy Johnson
    V10: For the LOVE of MONEY is the root of all EVIL. Not money is the root of all evil. We couldn’t survive a day without money. So many people today have sold their souls to Satan for the love of money: worldly people: movie stars: athletes: entertainers: prestigious: elites:
    etc: money is important: should not control you: God bless you: use to further His Kingdom: less fortunate: do not hoard:
