2 Timothy 2:15
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
King James Version (KJV)
It is only the very few who understand and adhere to this scripture. It has only been by the grace of God I’ve been able to thoroughly grow deeper into studying the word of truth found in the FINAL AUTHORITY of the King James Bible.
Although this study is not directly related to 2 Timothy 2:15, but rather The Godhead and Not the Pagan philosophy of the Trinity, it is by the precept of 2 Timothy 2:15 that I present this study.
Dear Saint, if you’re not studying the King James Bible you’re falling into error. Bear with me here for a brief moment to give you a perfect example of what I’m talking about.
All scripture in the King James Bible.

CINOs – Christians In Name Only actually believe that Christian Broadcast Network is a Christian Network and thereby promoting “truth” according to scripture.
I offer this recent article posted by CBN “Faithwire” regarding their recent reinstatement to TWITTER after being banned for their stand on calling a man a man.
Although I applaud CBN’s stand for calling a biological man a man, based on biblical truth, note how they end their statement using a perverted Bible translation. Note how the false teaching of today appears holy on the outside but are far from adhering in their hearts to God’s word. If you do not see a problem here, you need to honestly examine yourself before the Lord.
Here’s the CBN Quote:
Thanks to the free speech doctrine held by @elonmusk, our account has been reinstated, and we will continue speaking biblical truth, never in hate, always in love, and always to inform our readers to the best of our abilities,” the outlet proclaimed, closing with 2 Timothy 2:15, which reads, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
I ask the reader to compare 2 Timothy 2:15 in a perverted translation with the King James Bible.
Aside from the disaster in “rightly handling” verses rightly dividing which is an entire study in itself, I would like to focus on the term: ‘STUDY’ and why God wants his children to STUDY His word and exactly what study means. The word study literally means to strive after – working with great effort working through mental perplexity.
early 12c., “to strive toward, devote oneself to, cultivate” (translating Latin occupatur), from Old French estudiier “to study, apply oneself, show zeal for; examine” (13c., Modern French étudier), from Medieval Latin studiare, from Latin studium “study, application,” originally “eagerness,” from studere “to be diligent,” from PIE *(s)teu- (1) “to push, stick, knock, beat” (see steep (adj.)). The notion appears to be “pressing forward, thrusting toward,” hence “strive after.”
From c. 1300 as “apply oneself to the acquisition of learning, pursue a formal course of study,” also “read a book or writings intently or meditatively.” From mid-14c. as “reflect, muse, think, ponder.” Meaning “regard attentively” is from 1660s. Related: Studied; studying.
- 1300, “application of the mind to the acquisition of knowledge, intensive reading and contemplation of a book, writings, etc.,” from Old French estudie “care, attention, skill, thought; study, school” (Modern French étude), from Latin studium “study, application” (see study (v.)). Also from c. 1300 as “a state of deep thought or contemplation; a state of mental perplexity, doubt, anxiety; state of amazement or wonder.” From mid-14c. as “careful examination, scrutiny.”

While meditating on God’s word I have been heavily pressed in my spirit by The Spirit of God to share further insight into the Biblical Truth that God is ONE PERSON by examining the greetings of Paul in each of his Epistles.
We will examine particularly the conjunction “AND” and truly research its meaning IN CONTEXT.
REMEMBER Context determines the EXACT sense of the meaning of a word.
In all my study using proper hermeneutics the foundation is CONTEXT, CONTEXT, CONTEXT.
The use, meaning, and purpose of the conjunction in the English language has evolved tremendously in the past 500 years. If you’re interested, here is an interesting study by Jonathan Culpeper and Merja Kyto regarding the conjunction “and” in Early Modern English (the English utilized in the King James Bible).

“To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
King James Version (KJV)
There is quite a difference from the first AND in this scripture which uses the cumulative force, meaning “in addition to”, “plus” “also” as in the examples of scripture like the first “and” in Romans 1:7 as well as others like Matthew 1:17, 1 Corinthians 15:14,17.
Example of kai (and) meaning plus, in addition to:
Eta (uppercase Η, lowercase η) used after the conjunction kai
#1. και= and / plus
Ο Γιάννης και η Νίκη είναι εδώ./ Yannis and Niki are here.
Use of the conjunction “and” in Greek – Part 1 | Greek Language Blog (transparent.com)Use of the conjunction “and” in Greek – Part 1 | Greek Language Blog (transparent.com)
Cumulative means increasing steadily in amount or degree by one addition after another.
Now to examine the second “AND”. An unlearned reader would conclude there are 2 persons here Paul is addressing. Most of us would just read over this as I had for years.
As I stated, while meditating on His Word, The Lord revealed that what Paul is saying is God our Father who is now only Jesus Christ.
Paul was sold out for Jesus Christ and suffered terribly accordingly. He met Jesus face to face on the road to Damascus.
Jesus revealed himself personally to Paul. Read how Jesus presented himself to others in the Old Testament. The philosophy of a PREINCARNATE JESUS is not biblical. It was his virgin birth that he “legally” became the son of man to give himself as our perfect sacrifice. Amen!

This is the same manner you look at an individual and only see one person, yet the person has a Body and within him dwells his spirit and soul.
We are in the image of God – Jesus Christ having a face, arms, legs, and after his likeness (his essence of being 3 parts BODY, SOUL, SPIRIT.)
Genesis 1:26 1 Thessalonians 5:23
In the context of the open greetings of the Pauline Epistles, Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:3,9; 2 Corinthians 1:2, Galatians 1:3, Ephesians 1:2, Philippians 1:2, Colossians 1:2, 1 Thessalonians 1:1, 2 Thessalonians 1:2, 1 Timothy 1:2, 2 Timothy 1:2, Titus 1:4, Philemon 1:3, and among other scriptures like Matthew 1:21 and Mark 9:6, The King James translators translated the Greek word AND Strongs G2532 KAI in the context of a coordinating conjunction acting in the copulative force, meaning “that which is”, “namely”, “equivalent to,” “the whole linked in sense, state, property, substance, existence, and presence.”
Copulative means describing a word or word group that connects other words or word groups.
Example of kai (and) meaning “which is:
|3962 [e]||Πατρὸς||[the] Father||N-GMS|
|1473 [e]||ἡμῶν||of us||PPro-G1P|
|2962 [e]||Κυρίου||[the] Lord||N-GMS|
Something astounding that I want to share is in studying the word AND – in the context of the Pauline Epistle greetings to mean NAMELY, I discovered in the Oxford English Dictionary on page 1894 the meaning as: NOW ONLY.
Amen! Hallelujah! Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the ONLY ONE TRUE GOD, The creator of Heaven and Earth. Beside Him there is NO other. Believe this Saint!
Harmonizing scripture with scripture:
When we determine that the conjunction AND in context of the Pauline Epistle greetings means JOINED AS ONE, OF THE WHOLE, NOW ONLY ONE
Colossians 1:15, 16, 2:9;
“Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”
King James Version (KJV)
“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”
King James Version (KJV)
“Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?”
King James Version (KJV)
Most English teachers and I’d venture to say the majority of Bible students never bother studying the word of God to the extent necessary to be approved unto God. Again, it is imperative to say, that time in the NASB or other translation is nothing less than on a fool’s errand. See my background study on the tragic mangling of Luke 17:21 by Dr. Andy Woods’ otherwise brilliant work of THE COMING KINGDOM.
Reproving Dr. Andrew Woods – a case study in how modern day Bible Scholars pour Leaven into the Manna (thethirdheaventraveler.com)
See how Greek Scholars who claim one must understand Greek to understand God’s word often miss the mark. In collaboration with Dr. John Hinton a Greek and Hebrew Scholar, Rhodes Scholar and strong defender of the King James Bible translation I’ve come to learn that often false teachers act as NICOLAITANS (see the study of who are NICOLAITANS

bringing the masses to believe they are helpless to understand the Bible unless they are spoon fed.
Here is a brief example of a Quora comment by an English teacher regarding conjunctions:
“What are cumulative and adversative conjunctions?
I have never come across this terminology and I have managed without it for sixty years. This looks to me like linguistic hair splitting. Although such terminology might be useful within the sphere of linguistics, IMHO it has no place in using, learning and teaching English.”
Now imagine how the average bible teacher, student might approach scrutinizing scripture like this. I urge the reader to push yourself beyond your limits to study God’s word.
It is only through diligently seeking will you find Jesus Christ in a more personal deeper way. Without rightly dividing scripture, without knowledge of God’s word, we fall prey to the enemy and his false prophets and teachers.
Again, I stress you read my extensive studies on the Godhead is BIBLICAL – The Trinity is Pagan Polytheism BAAL Worship.
Let’s heed Paul’s warning in Colossians 2:8:
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
King James Version (KJV)
Let’s strive for masteries and our rewards as did Paul. Read and meditate on 2 Timothy 2:5. See additional studies:
2 Timothy 2:5
“And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”
King James Version (KJV)
