The Dangers of the Last Days

3You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.G5124G1097G1161G3754G1722G2078G2250G5467G2540G1764 2For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred.G1063G444G2071G5367G5366G213G5244G989G545G1118G884G462 3They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good.G794G786G1228G193G434G865 4They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.G4273G4312G5187G5369G3123G2228G5377 5They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!G2192G3446G2150G1161G720G1411G846G2532G5128G665 6They are the kind who work their way into people's homes and win the confidence of vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires.G1063G1537G5130G1526G1744G1519G3614G2532G162G1133G4987G266G71G4164G1939 7(Such women are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth.)G3842G3129G2532G3368G1410G2064G1519G1922G225 8These teachers oppose the truth just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses. They have depraved minds and a counterfeit faith.G3739G1161G5158G2389G2532G2387G436G3475G3779G436G3778G2532G436G225G444G2704G3563G96G4012G4102 9But they won't get away with this for long. Someday everyone will recognize what fools they are, just as with Jannes and Jambres.G235G4298G3756G1909G4119G1063G846G454G2071G1552G3956G5613G1565G2532G1096

Paul’s Charge to Timothy

10But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is. You know my faith, my patience, my love, and my endurance.G1161G4771G3877G3450G1319G72G4286G4102G3115G26G5281 11You know how much persecution and suffering I have endured. You know all about how I was persecuted in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra - but the Lord rescued me from all of it.G1375G3804G3634G1096G3427G1722G490G1722G2430G1722G3082G3634G1375G5297G2532G1537G3956G2962G4506G3165 12Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.G1161G2532G3956G2309G2198G2153G1722G5547G2424G1377 13But evil people and impostors will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.G1161G4190G444G2532G1114G4298G1909G5501G4105G2532G4105 14But you must remain faithful to the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know you can trust those who taught you.G1161G3306G4771G1722G3739G3129G2532G4104G1492G3844G5101G3129 15You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.G2532G3754G575G1025G1492G2413G1121G3588G1410G4679G4571G4679G1519G4991G1223G4102G3588G1722G5547G2424 16All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.G3956G1124G2315G2532G5624G4314G1319G4314G1650G4314G1882G4314G3809G1722G1343 17God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.G2443G444G2316G5600G739G1822G4314G3956G18G2041
