1 Timothy 2: 1-4

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Exhorto, pues, ante todo, que se hagan súplicas, oraciones, intercesiones y acciones de gracias, por todos los hombres; por los reyes y por todos los que están en eminencia, para que vivamos quieta y reposadamente en toda piedad y honestidad. Porque esto es bueno y agradable delante de Dios nuestro Salvador, el cual quiere que todos los hombres sean salvos, y vengan al conocimiento de la verdad.

We are to pray for all, not just some. Whether we like the ones who are in government or not, we should still lift them, and their decisions up to God. We cannot assume that God is using them for evil. God has a plan and it is our duty to pray, and let Him be God.

1 Timothy 1: 5-8

The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions. Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully

 Pero el propósito de nuestra instrucción es el amor nacido de un corazón puro, de una buena conciencia y de una fe sincera.  Pues algunos, desviándose de estas cosas, se han apartado hacia una vana palabrería,  queriendo ser maestros de la ley, aunque no entienden lo que dicen ni las cosas acerca de las cuales hacen declaraciones categóricas.  Pero nosotros sabemos que la ley es buena, si uno la usa legítimamente

It is easy for us as Christians to get caught up in pointing fingers at others. We see a sin or a mistake they make and we forget how many we have made. Are we living in the Holy Spirit or in the law?

1 Timothy 4: 1-8

But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer. In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following. But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.

Pero el Espíritu dice expresamente que en los postreros tiempos algunos apostatarán de la fe, escuchando a espíritus engañadores y a doctrinas de demonios;  que con hipocresía hablarán mentiras; teniendo cauterizada su conciencia;  prohibirán casarse, y mandarán abstenerse de alimentos que Dios creó para que con acción de gracias participasen de ellos los creyentes que han conocido la verdad.  Porque todo lo que Dios creó es bueno, y nada es de desecharse, si se toma con acción de gracias;  porque por la palabra de Dios y por la oración es santificado.  Si esto propusieres a los hermanos, serás buen ministro de Jesucristo, nutrido en las palabras de la fe y de la buena doctrina, la cual has alcanzado.  Mas desecha las fábulas profanas y de viejas, y ejercítate para la piedad;  porque el ejercicio corporal para poco es provechoso; mas la piedad para todo aprovecha, pues tiene promesa de la vida presente y de la venidera.

It is very easy to get caught up in what seems to be spirituality, but is actually law and stress. Don’t eat that, don’t drink this. Do it this way or follow my way.

The truth is, we need to follow God’s way–Jesus Christ’s way; we need to listen and follow the Holy Spirit. Just because everyone else is being vegetarians doesn’t mean you will get closer to Heaven by doing the same. There is only one way to Heaven–through Jesus’ amazing Grace.

Let God, prayer and God’s Word (The Bible) guide you. Many will try to have you follow their way–it doesn’t mean they are right. There is only one who has it completely right—Jesus Christ our Lord!

1 Timothy 2:1-3

1I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men; 2for kings and all that are in dignity, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and gravity; 3for this is good and acceptable before our Saviour God

1 Exhorto, pues, ante todo, que se hagan súplicas, oraciones, intercesiones y acciones de gracias, por todos los hombres; 2 por los reyes y por todos los que están en eminencia, para que vivamos quieta y reposadamente en toda piedad y honestidad. 3 Porque esto es bueno y agradable delante de Dios nuestro Salvador

We have to keep all leaders in prayer. Even if we disagree with their views, it is our responsibility to lift them to God. God puts them in seats of power and He takes them away from power. We must allow Him to guide them. Pray for our leaders and know that God IS in control.

1 Timothy 1:4

Neither give heed to myths and endless genealogies, which cause questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

ni prestaran atención a mitos y genealogías interminables, lo que da lugar a discusiones inútiles en vez de hacer avanzar el plan de Dios que es por fe, así te encargo ahora.

With all the hype about the Mayan prophecy, this scripture shows that we should not heed it. Only God knows when; only God!!

1 Timothy 5:24-25

Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after. Likewise also the good works of some are evident beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.

Los pecados de algunos hombres son ya evidentes, yendo delante de ellos al juicio; mas a otros, sus pecados los siguen. De la misma manera, las buenas obras son evidentes, y las que no lo son no se pueden ocultar.

This whole scripture speaks for itself quite better than I could ever say it. It is very important that we do realize, don’t we???… God sees it all. Shouldn’t we be embarrassed? After all, our maker sees it all!!! Lets see!! What all wouldn’t I actually want Him to see or hear? You?????
