The Last Days
1#Eze 38:16; 2Pe 3:3Know this: In the last days perilous times will come. 2#Php 2:21; Jude 1:16Men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3#Ro 1:31; 1Ti 3:11without natural affection, trucebreakers, slanderers, unrestrained, fierce, despisers of those who are good, 4#1Ti 3:6traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, 5#1Ti 5:8; Mt 7:15having a form of godliness, but denying its power. Turn away from such people.
6#Titus 3:3; Jude 1:4Those of this nature creep into houses and captivate silly women who are burdened with sins and led away with various desires, 7#1Ti 2:4; 2Ti 2:25always learning, but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8#Ex 7:11; 1Ti 6:5Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so these also resist the truth, men of corrupt minds and worthless concerning the faith. 9#Ex 7:12; 9:11But they shall proceed no further, for their folly will be revealed to everyone, as theirs also was.
Last Charge to Timothy
10#Php 2:22; 1Ti 4:6But you have observed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, tolerance, love, patience, 11#Ps 34:19; Ac 13:45persecutions, and afflictions, which came to me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra—what persecutions I endured! But the Lord delivered me out of them all. 12#Ac 14:22; Titus 2:12Yes, and all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13But evil men and seducers will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14#2Ti 1:13But continue in the things that you have learned and have been assured of, knowing those from whom you have learned them, 15#2Ti 1:5and that since childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through the faith that is in Christ Jesus. 16#Ro 15:4All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness, 17#1Ti 6:11; 2Ti 2:21that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
