"The Charge"

“The Charge”



In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in His own time---God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, who no one has seen or can see.  To Him be honor and might forever.  Amen.          1Timothy 6:13-16


This charge, given to Timothy, by Paul, was the strongest charge of all those given to Timothy.  The content of the charge is probably larger than any single law.  And more than likely refers to the whole body of sound teaching.  Paul was charging Timothy with the preservation of this whole body of teaching without spot or blame, until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.


The return of Christ will take place at God’s appointed time.  NO one knows when that will be, not even Christ Jesus knows, ONLY God, the Blessed and ONLY Ruler, the King of kings and Lord or lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom NO one has seen or can see. 


Then the charge ends with a doxology, of sorts, to the ONE and ONLY God of the Universe, the CREATOR of ALL that is, the Ultimate Ruler of all, the One deserving of PRAISE and WORSHIP.  ALL things are in His hands. 


God, though living in an unapproachable light, has provided away for mankind to come to Him, and that being, by His ONE and ONLY Son, Jesus Christ.  There is NO OTHER way in which mankind can be SAVED, but to come to the foot of the cross of Christ, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to God, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, which is offered to you through Jesus Christ, who will SOON RETURN to this earth to claim His own.  This is your opportunity to be able to spend ALL eternity in Heaven with God, the Father and Jesus His Son.  So you need to do it NOW, while you still can, because He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!  Don’t be left behind!!!
