Welcome to Timotheist

Standing on the Word

Isn’t the boast of the post-modern age, the boast of knowledge? The basis upon which many decry our faith, is the assumption that those who believe, do not know better. They beat their chests who would deride our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, by exalting themselves above Him upon the idea that they know, therefore they disbelieve.

The prevailing zeitgeist has insidiously permeated the ranks of the Church of Christ, so that among those who name the name of Jesus, are found some if not many, whose enthusiasm for the Lord barely rises higher than dampened powder. Are they saved? Yes, they are. Do they fellowship with believers? Yes, they do. But this higher call, to know Him, is a foreign concept to them.

May this platform serve to help you to know God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

PART 10: MAN IN HIS FALLEN STATE

22-February-2020 by Timothy Wanjohi

‘And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked…’ – Genesis 3:7.


 

This post is a discourse about how man fell and the consequences of the fall. It will give us an understanding of the state of the world we see around us and help us understand our position before God. As a result, we should be able to form a basis for how man could deal with God in latter posts. We will be able to explain it to the those who have not yet heard of it, and the doubting or the rebelling world, for it applies to all of mankind in the same degree. The significance of this information cannot be over-emphasized, reason being that Satan, our adversary, . . .

PART 9: MAN UNDER THE COVENANT OF WORKS

08-February-2020 by Timothy Wanjohi

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die - Genesis 2:17


 

A covenant in the Bible is an agreement between God and man where God promises to bless him if and when he keeps the stipulations laid down by God Himself. Man’s keeping of it is what we covenant theologians call the covenant of works, which is a theme we believe we can see throughout the tenor of the whole of the inspired Scripture.

 

In the covenant of works, Adam was the federal head of the human race. As a result, whatever he did, he did on behalf of all mankind. The Bible says, ‘Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so deat . . .

PART 8: MAN IN HIS PERFECT STATE.

10-July-2019 by Timothy Wanjohi

'The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life' – Job 33:4.


 

The first seven parts dealt with Theology, which is the study of God. What naturally follows is the study of man, Anthropology. The revelations of God are given in order that they might be understood by man. Without a proper understanding of the self, man will never have a proper perspective of how to approach God. God has chosen as a result, to reveal man to himself from a point of history to an eternity in the future, as revealed in the inspired Scripture.
