End Time Series
2 Timothy 3 New King James Version (NKJV)
Perilous Times and Perilous Men
3 But know this, that in the last days [a]perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.
The Man of God and the Word of God
10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3 New International Version (NIV)
3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
A Final Charge to Timothy
10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
In the last days will be difficult times of tribulations. They will be ungrateful and arrogant, they will be living and loving of the ungodly. They will have no self control and will be unforgiving to others. They will be filled in hate of that which is good and filled with pure detestation. They will turn away and betray their loved ones and friends and filled with pride, they will increase in love for pleasures and not that of God. They will act religious but will renounce the power that would make them godly. These are people who are known as unyoked of the word these are people we are told to stay away from and do not associate ourselves with. People who are unyoked will make us as believers stray and falter they will bring us down and turn us from God.
But remember this, your most trying and hardest journeys will be in the last days, these times will test your faith. During these times people will follow the law of the world, not of God. They will love only for themselves and will love money, alcohol and worldly pleasures. They will be proud and self praise themselves not the works of the father. They will focus solely on oneself. They will affront one another and abuse each other with offensive manner. They will not obey their parents. They will be unappreciative about all gifts and teachings from God and all having to take any part to God and against everything pleasing to God. They will not have love for others and will refuse to forgive anyone. They will talk about others to hurt them and will have no self control. they will be cruel snd hate what is good. They will become full of evil and pride.
People will turn against their friends. They will do foolish things without thinking and will be so proud of themselves. Instead of loving God they will love pleasure and entertainment. They will go on professing their love for God when they really have none and they will refuse to let that faithfulness change the way they live and be a part of who they are. Do not associate with these unyoked people for the will life in sin and of the world and will only pull you away from God as well. Some of them go into houses and control over weak woman whose lives are full of sin. Woman who are led by the things they want. These women always want to learn something new but they are never able to fully understand the truth. Just as they fought against Moses these people fight against truth. Their thinking is confused. The faith they have and teach is worthless but they will not succeed in what they are trying to do. Everyone will see how foolish they are.
But you know all about me, You know my goal in life I have given you all the truths and teachings about me. You know my faith, what i teach, and how I live. My patience and my love. You know that i never stop trying. You know all about my persecutions and my sufferings. You know all the things that happened to me in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. The persecution I suffered in those places. But the Lord saved me from it all. Everyone who wants to live showing true devotion to God in Christ will be persecuted People who are evil and cheat others will become worse and worse. They will fool others, but they will also be fooling themselves. But you should continue following the teachings you learned. You know it is true, because you know you can trust those who taught you. You have know the scripture since a young child. They are able to make you wise in knowledges. They will provide you wisdom leading to salvation through Jesus. All scriptures are given by God. And all is used for teaching and showing people what is wrong in their lives. It is useful for correcting responsibilities and teaching the right way to live. Using the scriptures for those who serve God will be prepared and will have everything they need to do every good work. Men will loose their Godliness and faith will be tested by God and also by the world. The world and God will ask of your faith. Times in the last days will be Tribulations full of the most trying times ever seen nothing will be normal or known to oneself it will be a teaching and learning experience of a test of faith.
