FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH
When Paul was writing to Timothy, there are many revelations that confirm everything I have said previously concerning the fake salvation message out there today, spread by all denominations, who have substituted ritual for searching out Christ, who have changed conversion into regeneration, and as a result lead MILLIONS of Christians to their eternal ruin. I want to examine one verse to show everyone what I have been warning about.
1 Timothy 6:12
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
The long and short of this is that Timothy is NOT YET SAVED, and must CONTINUE the battle in order to LAY HOLD OF ETERNAL LIFE.
1Ti 6:12 FightG75 theG3588 goodG2570 fightG73 of faith,G4102 lay hold onG1949 eternalG166 life,G2222 whereuntoG1519 G3739 thou art alsoG2532 called,G2564 andG2532 hast professedG3670 a goodG2570 professionG3671 beforeG1799 manyG4183 witnesses.G3144
Let’s take a look at FIGHT, LAY HOLD OF, ETERNAL LIFE.
ἀγωνίζομαι – agōnizomai – ag-o-nid’-zom-ahee
From G73; to struggle, literally (to compete for a prize), figuratively (to contend with an adversary), or generally (to endeavor to accomplish something): – fight, labor fervently, strive.
Now let’s compare that with Revelation and the word OVERCOMETH:
Rev 3:21 To himG846 that overcomethG3528 will I grantG1325 to sitG2523 withG3326 meG1700 inG1722 myG3450 throne,G2362 even asG5613 I alsoG2504 overcame,G3528
Νικάω – nikaō – nik-ah’-o
From G3529; to subdue (literally or figuratively): – conquer, overcome, prevail, get the victory.
Timothy is told to FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT in order to lay hold of ETERNAL LIFE, and in the Book of Revelation we find that the word OVERCOME means essentially the same thing, and that if ONE OVERCOMES certain promises are made to them.
If we look at the word agonizomai, from which comes agonize, and compare that with ENTER YE IN AT THE STRAIT GATE AND WALK THE NARROW WAY it all begins to make total sense. The word NARROW MEANS:
Θλίβω – thlibō – thlee’-bo
Akin to the base of G5147; to crowd (literally or figuratively): – afflict, narrow, throng, suffer tribulation, trouble.
This is a MAJOR BATTLE to ESCAPE the Matrix, and as I wrote in the Frequency series, there is a huge and very powerful spiritual/soulish attraction to THIS WORLD, and it is very difficult for anyone to break the bonds of this PRISON HOUSE we are born into and our OVERLORD is Satan and he does not want you to leave his CONTROL.
Thus it is that God the Father provides the POWER and the ABILITY to ANYONE and EVERYONE ONE who DESIRES TO FIND THE TRUTH the ability to do so. That is why Paul says that “if God be for us, who can be against us?” In the Old Testament God mocks us by asking “Is my arm so short it cannot save?” We are, collectively full of unbelief in this age of scientific miracles and materialism and more than ever we must rely upon the SURE PROMISES OF THE LORD.
Back to Timothy who was told to FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH so that he would LAY HOLD OF eternal life.
LAY HOLD OF:
ἐπιλαμβάνομαι – epilambanomai – ep-ee-lam-ban’-om-ahee
Middle voice from G1909 and G2983; to seize (for help, injury, attainment or any other purpose; literally or figuratively): – catch, lay hold (up-) on, take (by, hold of, on).
Obviously, Timothy had NOT YET laid hold of eternal life, and if he CONTINUED THE FIGHT, he would become (future tense) an OVERCOMER!
αἰώνιος aiōnios – ahee-o’-nee-os
From G165; perpetual (also used of past time, or past and future as well): – eternal, for ever, everlasting, world (began).
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
He who has the Son has ETERNAL LIFE. He who has NOT the Son does not have eternal life. Now you KNOW why Jesus said to ASK, SEEK, KNOCK, STRIVE, CONTINUE and if you would, you would FIND THE TRUTH and THE TRUTH WOULD SET YOU FREE.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND WHAT IS BEING SAID HERE. Do not listen to the lying preachers, teachers and evangelists or anyone else who tells you to say a simple “sinners” prayer and that gives you eternal life. They are apostates, liars whose destination is ETERNAL RUIN if they do not repent.
