People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 1:6


2Ti 1:6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance. From the earnestness with which he stirs up Timothy in both Epistles, it seems likely that he did not possess the rugged, restless energy of Paul. That thou stir up the gift of God. The supernatural gift which he received by the imposition of the apostolic hands. The gift of office was conferred by ordination at the hands of the presbytery; the gift of miraculous powers, by the imposition of the hands of an apostle.

Discussion for 2 Timothy 1

  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    See his envy O man? He is corrupt: so is his fruit. Being death he preaches death. He perishes as will his meat. That wicked, being willfully ignorant of the witnesses, confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh: whom I am witness. For my Holy Father will give thee the light of life. It is written, Whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Believe thou this? Repent: then believe.

    Yes, God has given us all things. It is in our power through him to have faith and and love and resist temptation and follow the path of righteousness.
  • A disciple
    "..now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and HATH BROUGHT LIFE AND IMMORTALITY TO LIGHT THROUGH THE ANNOUNCED GLAD TIDINGS...whereunto I am appointed a preacher.." Immortality! Death Abolished! All the works of the devil and all the causes of sin in man undone taken away and healed! Let us have no place for all that diverts us from God's purpose.
  • Ivan
    Julie. Ask the Lord to baptize you with the Holy Spirit and to give you a prayer language. When He does use it daily. Paul said that when you pray in the Spirit, or in tongues, you spirit prays directly to God in mysteries that only God understands. It is the most effective way to pray because the Spirit knows what to pray for always. I have experience this many times and seen many results.
