    does 'he that findeth his life shall lose it' mean ; if a person lives only for himself, believing all his life is by the power of his own hands, and never gives God a thought or glorifies Him: who will turn in others to save himself; who will take the mark of the beast to preserve his mortal life? just need clarification on this.

    To Noel on 2 Timothy 1:6, Your comment on speaking in tongues was painted with a wide brush. I would caution you as you move forward as a Christian, while professing speaking in tongues. You are incorrect in your interpretation of God's Word. Look up Kenneth Copeland and R H Browne as they babble in a "tongue?" Back and forth while laughing and slapping each other on the back. These people and others like them ie. Benny Hinn are nothing but charlatans who are out for their own personal financial gain. Study and show yourself approved while rightly dividing the TRUTH!!
  • Carol. on 2 Timothy 1:12
    We have to know in this uncertain time that regardless of whats happening around us the word of God still stands secure Paul said for i know!!! Its all about "KNOWING"...in spite of everything around us God is still God..for i KNOW!! I am in his hands this is my Confidence!!
  • Noel on 2 Timothy 1:6
    There is one gift it is the Holy Spirit Acts 2:38.

    When you recieve the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, The Holy Spirit comes into you with all the other manifestations of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12.

    1 Corinthians 12:28 - And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles,

    then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. (Tongues the last least gift.)

    1 Corinthians 12:29 - Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

    1 Cor 12:30 - Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? (the answer is NO)

    1 Cor 12:31 - But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

    1 Corinthians 14:5 I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues

    1 Corinthians Chapter 14: 26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue,

    hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.

    27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

    28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

    ....But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church....

    not one Pentecostal church I have ever been to have ever followed this in scripture.

    tongues is the least important gift. no interpreter = keep silent.

  • Mishael on The Holy Spirit on 2 Timothy 1
    Jesus spoke many times about the Comforter to come. Especially near the end of his earthly life. He knew we would need Holy Spirits ministry for every part of our lives; especially for ministry.

    Tongues is for the edification and strengthening of your inner spirit. Sometimes you may feel deep groaning inside. I rock myself. I was praying in tongues, as were hundreds of others: it was a corporate prayer. (Your natural mind does not comprehend what your spirit is saying. Give voice to the groaning.) We finished praying and it was time to go home. The nice looking couple beside me asked me if I knew what I had spoken? I said no. They asked did I want to know. I said ok. They said I was praising God in Hebrew. We chatted and they invited me and a church friend to a Passover dinner the next night which was beautiful. They washed my feet :O

    It's not an every day thing. You feel an unction in your spirit when the Holy Spirit alerts you to. If you're "standing in the gap" for someone (interceding), you need to pray right then if called to.

    It's not weird. Have you ever felt like groaning? I don't know one word of Hebrew. If someone was speaking it my natural mind wouldn't recognize it. It's mysterious but always calming. As my love and trust for the Holy Spirit deepened, I was ok with anything He wanted. I'm a servant as best I can describe.

    There's a lyric in a song that best describes it. It's about a holy man living in a cave who sings to the Lord. He's got no shoes, little food but sees the most incredible things..... The singer met the SONG, and he understood. He dies.

    That's how I feel about the Holy Spirit.

    If you've had failed relationships with male figures; you have to lay all that on a invisible altar; walk backwards to the door,

    Turn and walk away. Ask the Holy Spirit to cover those memories. In my experience the sting of those memories are never felt again.

    That'd how He is. He's gentle. He knows YOU by name.
  • Jan Hethcoat on 2 Timothy 1:7
    I love and believe in God ,but I also fear God. I believe that when I step out of God's will that He might and does, deal with me. The Holy Spirit makes me very uncomfortable until I go to God in prayer and seek His forgiveness.
  • Norman Walker Butch - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1
    Jan, I feel the same way. I am a true believer and love God and Jesus to! I also fear God but I also love him just as much! I worry that I am not living up to his standards because I do not like to mingle with a bunch of people like in Church. Not that they are rude or anything I just am not the type. I read something about God almost every day and every time I do he lifts me up and he has answered my prayers and one prayer he answered for me in about 5 Min. Just blew me away and him and only him would have known what I needed and after that I could feel him when I was in certain places in the house and it was a wonderful feeling!! I am afraid I am not living up to his standards and it really does worry me! I do think if I went to Church I would get the answers I am lookin for. What I do is look back to John 3:16, and that really sums it up for me. I wish with all my heart I felt better about everything because it is the most important thing in your life and I want to go to Heaven. I am no where at all a bad person. Gods word is getting fulfilled very fast right now! Amen

    Jan, it is wonderful that He deals with us as a loving father would on Earth (Hebrews 12:5-11) & not as a tyrant lording it over us for our many sins & weaknesses. We always notice that His dealings with us are gentle, patient, & imploring. Conviction of that sin is the first sign of the Spirit speaking to our spirit that all is not well & the Mercy Seat is available for us. How privileged & blessed we are to be His precious children.
  • Abraham on 2 Timothy 1:7
    The fear the Bible talks about is used with negative "not" refers to the condition in which we approach God.Because before Jesus ,our ancestors were given the covenant of Law on Mount Sinai to follow to live in peace with God. But the were dying like insect by a little mistake. In this way, the had been afraid to approach the Lord. Even animals died when the approached. Moses even said it that he was afraid to go near.They broke the covanant He told Jeremiah to let them know that he was about to make a new covenant with them which is of" LOVE AND PEACE not Of FEAR.(JER:31:33-34.)this is Jesus.Then through Jesus we are bound to God and live in peace andgo to God without fear..
  • Adam on 2 Timothy 1:12
    In this world of PC and political shaming and relentless attacks of Christians while somehow being respectful of non-Christian religions, it's not easy to apply this verse. It takes faith.
  • Harry on 2 Timothy 1:7
    In Psalms 34, David said, he sought the Lord& He delivered him from all his fears. That doesn't mean that David didn't have anymore.
  • Helena Garilano - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1
    Correct!Jesus showed us how to cast our demons of fear out Mark 16:17 Deliverance is a ministry about how to cast our demons
  • Fred Scanlan on 2 Timothy 1
    We need to reassure our pastors that in spite of the unbelief exhibited by the church today that we also believe, teach and are teachers of the gospel. Like then the church today is trampling the word for the sake of the ungodly. How long will you halt between two? We are not to be ashamed for what we believe. Being a prisoner,held by the gospel of truth. Stir up our minds , to be instant in season, proclaiming the hope in the Lord Jesus.Walk in the spirit, let the gospel convince you. Hold on to that holy spirit ,you are a holy priesthood.Proclaim his holy name as the spirit gives thee utterance.
  • Dougslug on 2 Timothy 1
    He was not ashamed of my chain. Though Paul was a prisoner his faithful friend came to see him and did not think less of him for the chain around his ankle. We can learn from this not to judge others for their position in life as after all Jesus was crucified between 2 other prisoners. Judge others for their faith and take stock of your own faith.
  • Freedomborn*** on 2 Timothy 1
    Do you also reject Jesus being called Emanuel meaning God with us. Our Abba Father has differant Names too and they have meaning. Anne
  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale: on 2 Timothy 1
    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.
  • CHRISTYloveYAH - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1

  • ANN on 2 Timothy 1
    Glory be to god, this is beautiful i love it , really enjoyable to read,and i do beleive god love for his people to come togather and discuss his living word, this is how we gain strength from one another.
  • Freedomborn - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1
    Very True Ann, we are indeed Jesus's Voice, Arms, Hands and Feet in this Hurting World. Love is an Action not just a word and God is Love and so His Words which are His Truth are very Powerful in breaking down Strongholds and Restoring His Love and Peace. God's Blessings dear Christian Sister - Anne.
  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale: - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1
    How are you, being many, Jesus? For the Scriptures say few, as in eight souls, are alive and remain. Can repentant men call on the Name of the Lord if many, of variable names and vain repetitions, are the Christ? My Holy Father says, For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ: and shall deceive many. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
  • Marjorie Hodges - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1
    Good morning can we study together a bit this morning ? concerning your entry that sounds like a question to me .It sounds like you may be having a problem rightly dividing the scriptures the eight remaining were Moses and his family aren't those the eight you are referring to?
  • Seventh day is sabbath - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1
    Maybe referring to Noah and his family?
  • I am - in Reply on 2 Timothy 1
    Nay. For the anointing of my Father makes me to rightly divide the word, of truth. It is written in the Holy Scriptures: Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
  • Felix on 2 Timothy 1
    God is good
  • BSP on 2 Timothy 1
    Verse 7~The spirit that Jehovah God gives is one of power and courage. God's spirit can help us to face and overcome any obstacle that comes our way.
  • Me. on 2 Timothy 1
    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 on 2 Timothy 1
    "..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 on 2 Timothy 1
    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.
