    I believe the Bible declares that 2 Timothy 4:18 is a doxology to the Lord Jesus. A doxology is basically defined as a hymn of praise to God. Since Christ is God He receives a doxology not only in 2 Peter 3:18 but here in 2 Timothy 4:18 as well.

    a. 2 Timothy 4:17 strengthened (endunamow, Strong's #1743) is used only two other times in Paul's' letters to Timothy.
    - 1 Timothy 1:12 (In reference to the Lord Jesus)
    - 2 Timothy 2:1 (In reference to the Lord Jesus)
    b. 2 Timothy 4:22 "The Lord be with your spirit"- spirit is used only two other times in the closing of Paul's letters when he states, "The Lord Jesus be with your spirit". - Galatians 6:18 (The Lord Jesus) - Philemon 1:25 (The Lord Jesus)

    If anyone has evidence that the appellation "Lord" is used in reference to the Father I would be interested in seeing it.

    Thank you
