1 Timothy 4:1 Parallel
Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

4:1 But the Spirit saith - By St. Paul himself to the Thessalonians, and probably by other contemporary prophets. Expressly - As concerning a thing of great moment, and soon to be fulfilled.

None of these persons, Mr. W. says, told any tales of their separate existence. So I suppose with him.

Discerning Prayer.
INTRODUCTORY. BY D.W. WHITTLE.
