The True Knowledge
1 Timothy 6:20 -
O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge
Today's scripture has a tremendous depth to what Paul advices Timothy. When I sat in the morning to write this message I had some track but situations did not allow me. Through this day many things happened but when I sat to reflect on this message and some of the events that happened today I realized the depth of today's message.
The Lord is telling us the knowledge we receive from the Bible is priceless and we need to understand the value of it.
Today as I was scanning through the TV channels I came across some of the children movies which showed about goblins, fairies, ogres and soul snatching etc. These movies brain wash the children and sow seeds of occult and make it difficult for them to know the Truth.
As adults we know these worlds are unreal but children sometimes live in these worlds. It may surprise you that even adults are so influenced by these fantasy world that they have mixed the Truth with these fantasy world. For example they imagine Angels to be like fairies, females with wings. Firstly the Angels are addressed as male (not that they are like earthly males) and like I wrote before all beings in Heaven have the same gender male. Secondly Angels have no wings, nor a body of flesh like we do. They are spirit beings and have powers to take any form, like appear as a human in the flesh. The spirit world is more real than the natural world we live in.
We adults laugh at the children when they speak of fairy land but we do not realize our world itself is like a fairy land and the real world is the spirit world. We the children of God are children of spirit and thus aliens in this world.
Like Paul advised Timothy, the Lord is advising us not to get lost in the knowledge of this world. The word translated as knowledge is also translated as science in the New Testament. It means the knowledge of this world which we take as science or consider as unchangeable are as Paul states as idle babbling, profane and untrue. That does not mean we turn a blind eye to all that exist. If we eye all that God created in its true understanding we too will say like God did 'it is good'. Scriptures state when the whole Truth will come into man nature will submit to man. Like Jesus commanded the storm and it obeyed so also all creation, animal, bird etc. the whole of nature will obey. Man will have power like sons of God (Angels).
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are Spirit and your Kingdom is Spirit Kingdom. Your Kingdom is real and this world we live in is temporary. You created this world with purpose and when that purpose is fulfilled all these cease to exist. Your Word reveals the Truth, it gives us knowledge of your Kingdom which is hidden from man. Lord, we pray that our faith increase and we dwell more in the Truth and not what this world tells us...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

20 O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge-
21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature [creation] waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creature [creation] was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope,
21 Because the creature [creation] itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
