2 Timothy 4 Shall be Turned unto Fables

Fables especially Jews Fables are defined by Christ in the Prophets Who warns about the "Lying Pen of the Scribes." Jesus denied that God commanded sacrifices or burnt offering but the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned Levites made a great instrumental noise claiming to shoo away the FLIES of BAAL and attract the good demons. God had abandoned them to Worship of the Starry Host.

2Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

The Greek LOGOS was Hermes: he was the son, mediator and worship leader. As the antithesis, Jesus defined Himself as the Son.  The Logos or Regulative Principle was still what God breathed (spirit) and Jesus spoke.  The spoken word was therefore the audible LOGOS: Jesus certified the prophets by the Spirit OF Christ Who defined a Rest Day as Qahal, ekklesia or synagogue both inclusively and exclusively.  In Isaiah 58 Christ outlawed seeking your own pleasure or even speaking your own words.  Paul defined that in Romans 15 which shut down all of the self-pleasure or the performing arts and crafts.  The purpose driving the church was to "use one mind and one mouth to speak that which is written for our learning.

Both the Elders (presbyters) or preachers (Kerusso) performed the role of heralds: A herald was to be punished if he changed the message to be delivered in any sense or charged for it on the receiving end.

2Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

A preacher or Kerusso must GO as a herald, deliver the message as written and then moveon.

The two functions were to speak the LOGOS without modification and the listeners gave attention to that spoken or written word and never change it.

God is the LOGOS or Regulative or Governing principle of the universe. What God speaks is LOGOS.  God always had His mind and Word with Him. No man has the ability to speak FOR God; therefore, the command from the wilderness onward was to PREACH the Word by READING the Word.  The godly people attended the Qahal, synagogue, ekklesia or Church of Christ (the Rock) in the wilderness. They were quarantined from the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned Levites.  The Sabbath means REST and that prevented the scattered people from going to the pagan "worship centers" including the Jerusalem Temple operated by The Civil - Military - Clergy monarchy God had abandoned to worship the starry host.

2Timothy 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

2Timothy 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

Paul spoke only what Jesus as Spirit revealed to him to guide him into all truth as He did the original apostles.  Jesus spoke only what He heard from the Father and He commanded that we teach and observe what HE commanded to be taught. That supplies the Evangelist with all he needs without a degree in Theology, music or acting.

2Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Those who Love Him WILL keep His commandments defined by the Prophets and Apostles.
