1 Timothy 4:5
_ _ sanctified “hallowed”; set apart as holy for the use of believing men: separated from “the creature,” which is under the bondage of vanity and corruption (Romans 8:19, etc.). Just as in the Lord’s Supper, the thanksgiving prayer sanctifies the elements, separating them from their naturally alien position in relation to the spiritual world, and transferring them to their true relation to the new life. So in every use of the creature, thanksgiving prayer has the same effect, and ought always to be used (1 Corinthians 10:30, 1 Corinthians 10:31).
_ _ by the word of God and prayer that is, “by means of intercessory prayer” (so the Greek) that is, consecratory prayer in behalf of “the creature” or food that prayer mainly consisting of “the word of God.” The Apostolic Constitutions [7.49], give this ancient grace, almost wholly consisting of Scripture, “Blessed art thou, O Lord, who feedest me from my youth, who givest food to all flesh: Fill our hearts with joy and gladness, that we, having all sufficiency, may abound unto every good work in Christ Jesus our Lord, through whom glory, honor, and might, be to thee for ever. Amen.” In the case of inspired men, “the word of God” would refer to their inspired prayers (1 Kings 17:1); but as Paul speaks in general, including uninspired men’s thanksgiving for meals, the “word of God” more probably refers to the Scripture words used in thanksgiving prayers.
1 Timothy 4:5
It is sanctified by the word of God Creating all, and giving it to man for food. And by prayer The children of God are to pray for the sanctification of all the creatures which they use. And not only the Christians, but even the Jews, yea, the very heathens used to consecrate their table by prayer.
1 Timothy 4:5
(8) For it is (d) sanctified by the (e) word of God and prayer.
(8) He properly uses God's benefits who acknowledges the giver of them by his word, and calls upon him.
(d) It is so made pure and holy in respect of us, so that we may use it with a good conscience, as received from the Lord's hands.
(e) We confess and acknowledge that God is the maker and giver of those creatures which we use. Secondly, that we are of the number of those, who through Christ's benefit, have recovered that right over all creatures, which Adam lost by his fall. Thirdly, by our prayers we crave of the Lord that we may use those meats with a good conscience, which we receive from his hands. Fourthly, we make an end of our eating and drinking, with thanksgiving and prayer: and so are our meats sanctified to us.
1 Timothy 4:3 Forbidding to marry, [and commanding] to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
Luke 11:41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.
1 Corinthians 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
Titus 1:15 Unto the pure all things [are] pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving [is] nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
