Devotional Readings, Reflections on Israel

2 Timothy 3 – Would we be so bold as to include this chapter?

This chapter ends with two of my favorite verses…well worth memorizing.

It also has two lists….see below.
In Acts 20, Paul had written to the Ephesian elders..

Act 20:26  Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.

Act 20:27  For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

Act 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Act 20:29  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

Act 20:30  Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Act 20:31  Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.


And to the Romans he wrote…

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Rom 1:19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Rom 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Rom 1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Rom 1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.


Listen and read what he writes to Timothy….

Godlessness in the Last Days

(Bad list)

2Ti 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2Ti 3:2  For men shall be 

lovers of their own selves, 

covetous, 

boasters, 

proud, 

blasphemers, 

disobedient to parents, 

unthankful, 

unholy,


2Ti 3:3  Without natural affection, 

trucebreakers, 

false accusers, 

incontinent, 

fierce, 

despisers of those that are good,


2Ti 3:4  

Traitors, 

heady, 

highminded, 

lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;


2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof: 

from such turn away.


2Ti 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and 

lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,


2Ti 3:7  Ever learning, and 

never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.


2Ti 3:8  Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

2Ti 3:9  But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

All Scripture Is Breathed Out by God

(Good list)

2Ti 3:10  But thou hast fully known my 

doctrine, 

manner of life, 

purpose, 

faith, 

longsuffering, 

charity, 

patience,


2Ti 3:11  Persecutions, 

afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what 

persecutions I endured: 

but out of them all the Lord delivered me.


2Ti 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.


2Ti 3:13  But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

2Ti 3:14  But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

2Ti 3:15  And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.


2Ti 3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2Ti 3:17  That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
