As I slowly make my way into 2 Timothy, I couldn’t help but jump ahead a couple of chapters; don’t worry, I’ll go back. There is no reason for me to comment or give examples or explanations; these verses speak for themselves except where Paul mentions Jannes and Jambres. These men were Pharaoh’s magicians replicating Moses's miracles when the Israelites were trying to get out of Egypt. Please read this and realize that we are in the last days, but remember, it’s the last days for evil, not us.
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith. But they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men. 2 Timothy 3:1-9
