Timothy Study – Part 17 (final in the series). The lesson on July 22, 2007 finishes the audio series in Timothy. This is the 17th and final lesson in this series. The last lesson looked at our hope and our sphere of blessing. It covered the three spheres of blessings and which ones belong to whom which will probably lead to another series that dives into what our hope is in the church of the one body. But, in finishing Timothy, the verses covered were in 1 Tim 6:15-16 “Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.” These verses express very particular truths we have in the calling that we have. Christ Jesus is the only potentate. There is none other who has accomplished what Christ Jesus has done. He is the only on that has immortality! The God Man, Christ Jesus is the only one that can dwell in the light of God. Now, in verse 17 thru the end of the chapter, Paul picks up the message from where he left off in verse 9. 1 Timothy 6:17-19 “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.” There are 9 million millionaires in America today. What is rich? Isn’t it relative? Riches are something that we never should covet. The first thing God tells those who are rich is not to be highminded. People who have money think they are better than those who don’t. Don’t trust in your uncertain riches. The lesson goes into examples in scripture of how riches are a snare to a man of God.
