Precept:

Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

 

What is the understanding?

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard: The scriptures state that we must REMEMBER how we have received and heard the truth of the Most High. The same way you are taught the word, you must in the same order teach the word. And holdfast: To hold fast means to stand strong without wavering. By standing strong on the foundation of the doctrine of Christ, you will become skilled in defending the true gospel.

Precept:

1Ti 1:3 As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,

What is the understanding?

That thou mightiest charge some that they teach no other doctrine: Paul was very strict when it came to doctrinal understanding. Here he is commanding Timothy to let it be known to those that were in the church of Ephesus that it was important that they TEACH NO OTHER DOCTRINE. During the time of the Apostles there were many false doctrines circulating in the churches of Asia Minor. You even had some people teaching that Christ had already returned for His second coming:

Precept:

2Ti 2:17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 2Ti 2:18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

What is the understanding?

The same obstacle is posed today when it comes to false teachings. The internet has made it so that a person can be accessible to so many different doctrines at one time. By the time it's all said and done, a person may come in contact with so many philosophies that it eventually causes them to be forever learning without ever coming to the knowledge of the truth (2 Tim. 3:7).

Precept:

1Ti 1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

What is the understanding?

Neither give heed to fables: To give heed means to "hold the mind", "pay attention to", or "to apply oneself to". We are not to give any attention to fables; understanding that with these fables and lies come spirits. What are fables? Fables are basically defined as myths or legends. Fables can be categorized as something that exalts itself against the knowledge of the Most High and it's our job according to the Bible to cast them down (2Cor.10:5). These are things that can go into the same category as Christ being a European that was born on December 25.

 

And endless genealogies:

Because Israel was scattered throughout the four corners of the earth, it's impossible for one to trace his or her exact lineage from one ancestor to another. Also, we cannot try to question the genealogy of another man or woman using the color of their skin as a basis. That's not to say that we can't identify who people are in the earth today, The Most High gives exact prophecies of each nation along with what will befall them in the end days.

Through this we are able to identify who the people are in the earth today; not by some DNA test with the purpose of trying to trace every single ancestor back to ancient times. Which minister questions rather than godly edifying: Both fables and endless genealogies do nothing but bring forth confusion that causes an individual to question their faith. The Most High is not the author of confusion (1 Cor. 14:33). Our job as ministers and teachers of the Most High's word is to bring forth edification (understanding) not confusion.

Precept:

1Ti 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 1Ti 1:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;

What is the understanding?

From which some having swerved have turned aside to vain jangling Because some have turned aside from the true doctrine of Christ, they have turned aside to vain jangling (vain talk, babbling) with the purpose of making others believe that they are deep in understanding. Most of the time, this form of talk is 100% nonsense. This is why it's important to stick with the precepts.

Precept:

1Ti 1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

Desiring to be teachers of the law: understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm: Have you ever seen someone try to teach the Bible and you find yourself asking the question of; What in the world are they talking about? This is what happens when you turn aside from using the precepts. You'll eventually find yourself trying to philosophy your way through the Bible.

1Ti 4:6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things: When you become a teacher, it will become your duty to put the brothers and sisters in remembrance of the true doctrine of Christ. Thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ: By doing so, you will become a great minister and teacher of the word of Jesus Christ. Nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine whereunto thou hast attained: In order to become a great teacher, you must be nourished in the words of faith and the good doctrine which you have learned and acquired through study.

Precept:

1Ti 4:11 These things command and teach.

These things command and teach: Exactly what are we commanded to teach?

Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

What is the understanding?

We are commanded by Christ Himself to go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel to teach and preach to them that the kingdom of our Lord is at hand. Some people may ask what our overall objective is as teachers of the Most High's word. Our overall objective is to bring again the sons of Jacob back to the Father (Isa. 49:5-6).

Precept:

1Ti 6:3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

If any man teach otherwise:

If any man is teaching anything outside of the holy precepts of the Most High and Christ. And consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ: The wholesome words are the precepts of the Most High God Ahayah and our Lord and Saviour Yashiya that our found within the Bible. And to the doctrine which is according to godliness: What things are contained within the doctrine of the Most High and Christ?

1.The understanding of baptism, laying on of hands, the resurrection and second coming of our Lord, and last but not least, the judgment of the inhabitants of the earth:

Heb 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Heb 6:2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

2. The knowledge and understanding of the laws, statutes and commandments of the Most High:

Sir 19:19(Ecclesiasticus KJVA) The knowledge of the commandments of the Lord is the doctrine of life: and they that do things that please him shall receive the fruit of the tree of immortality.

3. The understanding of where we are in prophecy:

Sir 24:33 I will yet pour out doctrine as prophecy, and leave it to all ages forever.

1Ti 6:4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

He is proud:

Any man that deals outside of the precepts of the Most High is proud. The scriptures tell us that the beginning of pride comes when one departs from the Most High (Sir. 10:12). Knowing nothing: Anyone who deals outside of the precepts when teaching the Bible can be considered one that is unlearned and one that knows nothing.

 

But doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, and railing, evil surmisings:

The only thing that comes from vain talking is arguing and strife. The Bible is to become the authority at all times when teaching. It's the Bible that brings forth the understanding; not someone's opinion or vain conversation. If anyone moves off into philosophy and vain talking, you have to immediately get them back into the Bible. If you don't accomplish this, the only thing that will happen is that you will eventually get pulled into using philosophy instead of the Bible. When you teach outside of the precepts, the Bible loses all authority. Therefore, if any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of the Most High (1Pet. 4:11).

Precept:

1Ti 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

Perverse disputing of men of corrupt minds:

This is what a teacher who doesn't stay in the precepts will lead himself into; a perverse dispute in which no understanding is being brought forth. You have to understand that most of the people you come in contact with have become spiritually corrupted through either mainstream or secular religion. In mainstream religion, an individual doesn't have to go into the Bible to confirm anything. All they have to do is talk their way out of a situation. It's our job as teachers to exalt the word of the Most High; not to assist an individual in feeling like it's okay to not deal with the Bible as it is written. You will only end up adding to the confusion and spiritual corruption that this person is already dealing with.

 

And destitute of truth:

Because of the damage that has been done by both mainstream and secular religions, the world has become destitute of truth. We are responsible for bringing the truth out of the Bible as it is written. Once again, we cannot become guilty of adding to the confusion that religion has already brought forth.

 

Supposing that gain is godliness:

In mainstream religions like Christianity, a person's spirituality is measured by material gain. This idea is contrary to scripture. From such withdraw thyself: From such conversations you must withdraw yourself. Only through the precepts will you gain and bring forth understanding. Trying to receive or bring forth understanding in any other manner is false (Ps. 119:104).

Precept:

2Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God:

What is the understanding?

No matter how spiritual an individual may try to present themselves, if they abide not in the doctrine of Christ, then they are not dealing with the Most High God. Remember, Satan along with his ministers have the power to come as angels of light. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son: Those who abide in the true doctrine of Christ have a true understanding of both the Father and the Son.

Precept:

2Jn 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine:

What is the understanding?

 

This is speaking about anyone claiming to be upholders of the Most High and Christ but yet they are purposely not dealing with truth. Receive them not into your house: The Bible says that you are not to let such an individual into your house. Though this may seem harsh, this measure must be taken in order to prevent the spirits that come with false doctrines from entering into your home. Neither bid him God speed: To wish someone God speed is to give someone a happy farewell.

Precept:

2Jn 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

What is the understanding?

For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds: By wishing someone God speed after they have just exposed themselves as being bearers of false doctrine, you may make that person feel as though it's okay to spread his or her false doctrine to someone else. As a brother or sister, the best thing to do is try to correct them through the word of the Most High.

These rules our especially for those who will be teaching others. Philosophy and vain babbling will not be tolerated. Also remember that everyone is not a teacher. This information is especially key for those who are proven faithful when it comes to rightfully dividing the word of truth.

Precept:

2Ti 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses:

What is the understanding?

The "things" that Paul is referring to is certain understandings that he have taught amongst a select few. The same commit thou to faithful men: Paul says that these things are to be shared amongst men who are faithful men. These are men who are proven to be strong and wise laborers in the word of the Most High. Anyone who is wise will not attempt to cast precious jewels to swine (Matt. 7:6). In other words, it would be foolish for someone to teach a breakdown of the 7 seals of Revelations to someone who doesn't even know how many tribes of Israel there are. The only thing you will accomplish by doing this is confusing a person and stunting their spiritual growth. Who shall be able to teach others also: This is a clue to identifying who the faithful men are. These are men who have the scriptural knowledge and spiritual acumen to successfully teach others.

Precept:

2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God:

In order to receive any high understanding, you must first study to show yourself proven unto the Most High. By doing so, the Most High will exalt you in due season.

 

A workman:

Notice how the Bible refers to those who labor in the word as "workman". Whether people realize it or not, the work of the Most High is an actual job. When you examine the societies that came before us, each society had those who dealt with manual labor. And on the other hand, you had priest whose job was to teach the people the fear of the Most High in order to keep them spiritually and morally sound. The sick world we live in today is a perfect example of what happens to a nation when everyone is busy with manual labor with no one to teach them what is spiritually and morally sound. That needeth not to be ashamed: If you are serious in your studies, there will be no need for you to be ashamed when people come to you with certain questions.

 

Rightfully dividing the word of truth:

Through studying, you will eventually have the wherewithal to RIGHTFULLY divide the truth. Common sense tells us that if there is a correct way to divide the truth, there must also be a wrong way:

Precept:

Psa 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

The precepts are the only way to get the correct understanding. Any other way can be considered false. The question is what exactly is a precept?

Isa 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

Isa 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

What is the understanding?

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line: Isaiah 28:9-10 is where you go in order to receive instructions on the correct way to read the Bible. In order receive understanding, the Bible must be read precept upon precept, line upon line. A precept is defined as a scripture that links directly to another scripture. Here a little and there a little: Some people may attempt to understand the Bible by just simply reading through it like a novel. Usually, those who try to learn the Bible in this fashion find themselves frustrated to the point where they just put down the Bible altogether. The Bible, unlike any other book, is a living record. Therefore, it is not to be read like any other book. To read here a little and there a little is very key; for the simple fact that you may have a verse in Genesis whose full understanding might not pick up until you reach the book of Revelations.

For example:

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

In order to get the full understanding of this verse, you have to go all the way to Revelations the 12th chapter:

Rev 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: Rev. 12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. Rev.12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
