Perilous Times – 2 Timothy 3:1-9

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.  2 Timothy 3:1-9  (KJB)

From F. B. Meyer on 2 Timothy 3:1-9…

“The last days of the present age are to be black and sorrowful. Sinful rejection of Christ will come to a head. We must not be misled by the wide-spread profession of the forms of religion; this may co-exist with the rankest apostasy. When women are conscious of sins against God, society, and themselves, they are very liable to the seduction of false teachers, who promise peace and condone impurity.
Tares and wheat grow together unto the harvest. The devil has always set himself to counterfeit God’s handiwork: the Holy City by Babylon; the Son of man by the man of sin; blessedness by the worldling’s giddy merriment. Thus the Egyptian conjurers repeated the miracles of Moses by resorting to sleight of hand. So there is a pure gospel and a specious mimicry of it. Wait for the inevitable unfoldings of God’s purpose. Time will show what is true and what is false. In the meantime, examine yourselves whether ye be in the faith.” Through the Bible Day by Day (F. B. Meyer)

As Christians in the world today we must stand upon the Scriptures, the word of God; and when others are turning to false teachers and teachings we must not.  When we stay true to God and His word, and by the guidance of the Holy Spirit within us we will not be led away from Christ Jesus our Lord, into the peril of the wicked.

Keep your eyes on Jesus Christ, the One who is the greatest gift given to Adam kind; He who went to the cross taking our sin upon Himself, and  died that we might be in the presence of God,  Jesus was buried carrying our sin away, then rose bodily from the grave, and He lives forever. Because He lives we too will live eternally with Him.

Turn your life to Jesus Christ today.  Call on His name and He will hear, and He will deliver you from your sin.
