“A Hireling sent from our Enemies…!” (Continued)

“En Garde” in fencing is a call to be ready for an attack. The Word of God is our sword (Eph. 6:17) Titus tells us to use God’s Word (the Truth) to “rebuke” – expose, admonish, demand an explanation when we are led away from God’s Word. (Eph. 5:11) This is to be done without hesitation. (2 Cor. 13:10)
Verse 14
“and will pay no attention to Jewish myths or to the merely human commands of those who reject the truth”
Attention – prosechō – apply, attach, be addicted to (Heb. 2:1)
Fables – mythos – inventions, fiction, lie (2 Pet. 1:16)
Commands – entolē – order, charge, rule (Matt. 15:9)
Reject – apostrephō – defect, turn allegiance, desert (2 Tim. 4:4)
Truth – alētheia – reality, facts (Jn. 8:32)
