Really, what was the apostle Paul really saying in this verse. Paul was writing according to the facts of the first century of Christianity, during which the new covenant had been put into operation. Into it men of all nationalities, Jews, Samaritans, uncircumcised Gentiles, had already been brought after being made a part of spiritual Israel.
What is wrong with the jebhoba witness cult.
1. 1 Timothy 2:5
The Watchtower cult REJECTS this (and really every other) scripture and accepts the (Satanic) Watchtower Cult in the place of Jesus as the mediator. Only the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses have direct access to the truth. Only they can ultimately interpret scripture correctly.
Christ Jesus was the mediator of that new covenant.
Pauls letter to Timothy regarding this was a case of one minister of the new covenant writing to another minister of the new covenant. That new covenant between our Savior, God, and spiritual Israel continues as long as there are spiritual Israelites still in the flesh as men here on earth.
So the covenant is in force today. Jesuscorresponding ransom for all lays the basis for men and women of all sorts to become spiritual Israelites and be brought into the new covenant of which Christ Jesus is the one mediator.
The Law covenant arrangement with its animal sacrifices, as a pictorial legal basis, pointed toward a superior basis for approach to God.(Heb 9:8-10; 10:1)
This came by means of the new covenant through which all were to know Jehovah, from the least one even to the greatest one.(Jer 31:31-34; Heb 7:19; 8:10-13)
As the sole Mediator of that new covenant, Christ Jesus became the way. He said,No one comes to the Father except through me.(Joh 14:6, 13, 14)
The barrier separating the Jews from the uncircumcised Gentile nations outside Gods national covenant with Israel was removed by means of Christs death, so that through him we, both peoples, have the approach to the Father by one spirit.(Eph 2:11-19; Ac 10:35)
Faith in God as the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him and in the ransom is the prerequisite for peaceful approach and a kindly reception by God through Jesus Christ.(Heb 11:6; 1Pe 3:18)
Those approaching through Christ Jesus as their High Priest and Intercessor know that he is always alive to plead for them(Heb 7:25), and they can confidently approach with freeness of speech to the throne of undeserved kindness.(Heb 4:14-16; Eph 3:12) They do not approach in fear of condemnation.(Ro 8:33, 34) Yet they retain the godly fear and awe that such approach to God,the Judge of all, merits.Heb 12:18-24,
