Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Timothy 6:15

_ _ in his timesGreek,His own [fitting] times” (Acts 1:7). The plural implies successive stages in the manifestation of the kingdom of God, each having its own appropriate time, the regulating principle and knowledge of which rests with the Father (1 Timothy 2:6; 2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 1:3; Hebrews 1:1).

_ _ he shall show — “display”: an expression appropriate in reference to His “APPEARING,” which is stronger than His “coming,” and implies its visibility; “manifest”: make visible (compare Acts 3:20): “He” is the Father (1 Timothy 6:16).

_ _ blessed — in Himself: so about to be the source of blessing to His people at Christ appearing, whence flows their “blessed hope” (1 Timothy 1:11; Titus 2:13).

_ _ only — (John 17:3; Romans 16:27; Revelation 15:4).

_ _ King of kings — elsewhere applied also to Jesus (Revelation 1:5; Revelation 17:14; Revelation 19:16).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Timothy 6:15

Which in his times he shall shew, [who is] the (f) blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

(f) He combines many words together for one purpose: by which he confirms the power of God, which if we trust steadfastly in, we will not be moved out of our position.
