1 Timothy 3 King James Version (KJV)

This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop (overseerer), he desireth a good work.

A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre (money); but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity (orderly, mannerly);

(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without (outside of the Church); lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Likewise must the deacons be grave (worthy of respect), not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre (gain);

Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.

11 Even so must their wives be grave (worthy of respect), not slanderers, sober (moderation) faithful in all things.

12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well, purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

14 These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:

15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

These verses have major significance in my life, when timing is taken into account.

For i currently hold the position of House Manager.

A position given to me by Elohim Himself. Something He assures me of often.

Just last night, i pleaded to Yeshua even more. The personal difficulties i am having interfere greatly with my duties in this position the Lord has placed me in.

i reminded Him, that i am representing You! 😀

i do not plead for myself, to be free of discomfort, i plead for His Glory to manifest in a miracle, so that i will be above reproach, as is mentioned in the verses above.

This position calls for me to be very tempting ‘bait’ for the hook is Christ and i am not, unless He steps in & heals me again, miraculously! (Hallelujah!) 😀

i woke up with instructions, a list of things to do, i was shown them. Definitely an answer to my pleas! 😀

Ty Yeshua! 😘
