Conclusion: It concerns the witnesses of Messiah to seriously consider the account they must give the Lord Jesus Christ, of the trust placed upon them as His representatives. Against the last days when there shall be widespread rejection of the sound doctrines, men grown weary of the plain Gospel and hankering for vain philosophies, let us faithfully preach the pure Word of God, apart from any merely human fancies, making full proof of our ministry and loving the truth of His return for His own.
Key Word: Paul’s Charge, 2 Timothy 4:1
Strong Verses: 2 Timothy 4:2-4, 8, 18
Striking Facts: 2 Timothy 4:8, “Crown” is a symbol of reward in the New Testament. A special reward is promised to those who love the truth of Christ’s second coming and work and long for it. It is a crown the “post-millennarian” will not receive, for He hopes to set up the millennium without the presence of the King.
