The Path of an Approved Servant in a Day of Falling away (Apostasy)

chazak Chazak

2:1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the Chesed that is in Moshiach Yeshua (ישוע). Eph 6:10

2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to trustworthy men, who shall be able to teach others also. 2 Tim 1:13

2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Yeshua (ישוע) Moshiach.

2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of [this] life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

2:5 And if a man also strive for masteries, [yet] is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

2:6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.

2:7 Consider what I say; and the Master give thee understanding in all things.

2:8 Zakar that Yeshua (ישוע) Moshiach of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my goodnews:

2:9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, [even] unto bonds; but Dvar Elohim is not bound.

2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the Yeshuah (salvation) which is in Moshiach Yeshua (ישוע) with kavod olamim.

2:11 [It is] a trustworthy saying:

2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto Elohim, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Dvar Emet.

2:16 But shun profane [and] vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

2:17 And their conversation will spread like gangrene: Among them  of whom is Humenaios and Philetos; 1 Tim 1:20

2:18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the Emunah of some.

Hashem knows His servants

2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of Elohim standeth sure, having this seal, Adonay knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that nameth the Name of Moshiach depart from iniquity.

2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of zahav and of Kesef, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, [and] prepared unto every good work.

2:22 Flee also youthful lusts: but pursue Tzedek, Emunah, ahavah, Shalom, with them that call on the Adonay out of a lev Tahor (pure heart).

2:23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

2:24 And the eved Adonay must not be quarrelsome; but be gentle unto all [men], able to teach, patient when wronged,

2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if Elohim peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; Acts 8:22; 1 Tim 2:4

2:26 And [that] they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
