2Timothy 3:1-13
Scripture ...But understand this, that in the last days hard times will come— for people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, hardhearted, unforgiving, backbiting, without self-control, brutal, hating what is good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to an outward form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people! For among these are those who slip into households and deceive weak women weighed down with sins, led away by various desires, always learning yet never able to come to the knowledge of truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so do these people oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and worthless concerning the faith. But these people will not make any more progress—for their folly, like that of Jannes and Jambres, will be obvious to everyone. You, however, closely followed my teaching, manner of life, purpose, faithfulness, patience, love, perseverance— as well as persecutions and sufferings that happened to me in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. What persecutions I endured! And the Lord rescued me from them all! Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted. But evil men and imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
2 Timothy 3:1‭-‬13

Paul's reference to the, last days, reveals his sense of urgency. The last days began after Jesus's resurrection when the Holy Spirit came upon the believers at Pentecost. The last days will continue until Christ's second coming. This means that we too are living in the last days and we should make the most of the time that God has given us here on earth.

We all should daily check our lives against Paul's list so we do not give into societies pleasures… We must be ready, vigilant, we never know when Christ will return…

We can read the scripture in Matthew that says in the end, many Christians will fall away… This gives me such pause… We mustn't settle for the comfort without commitment, WE MUST STAND! stand up against evil by living as God would have his people live.

Why is it so tempting to love pleasure rather than God? Sin is fun for a season.. it's a snare!!!  A trap from the enemy!… We may not see the consequences of sin immediately, so we think we have  gotten away with something... God will not be mocked!!! Rest assured, God sees everything, and He knows our hearts! ...Pleasure is something we can control and God cannot be controlled..
We as believers must continuously grow in our knowledge of the Word because ignorance can make us vulnerable to deception… We are in the world, but not of the world!

We must remember that the enemy was once living in heaven… He knows the word and he knows how to twist it… Do not be tricked, know the word for yourself!

The Bible says in 2 Timothy 2:22
That we must run from anything that stimulates youthful lust's. Instead, we must pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.

It goes on to say in verse 23, again I say, don't get involved in foolish, ignorant, arguments that only start fights.

God is our vindicator, God is our redeemer… Let's plead our cases to God, let's let Him handle and settle all of these injustices!

 2Timothy 2:19
God's truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription, "The Lord knows those who are his and all who belong to the Lord must turn away from evil!"

I pray a fresh alignment and a fresh assignment for each and every one of us as we are God's watchmen on the wall, God is using us to hold open the gates for the gospel!

When the enemy comes in like a flood, God will raise a standard against the enemy, God is using all of us to raise the standard against all evil… Check your hearts, check your minds, what are you thinking on, are you reacting to evil or are you trusting God, we must pray more than we complain.. let's speak the word over evil because in the HOLY NAME OF JESUS ,
The enemy has to flee!!!
It's time, take your authority,!!!

"Lord hear our cries, and help us to stay on your path, help us  to be bold for your name, we pray that what the enemy has meant for harm,  God you will use for good, we pray that we will overcome evil with good, we pray for protection, guidance, and that no weapon formed against your people can ever prosper...
Vindicate, redeem, restore, unite, prosper, heal, and bring peace to your people, this nation, and the world… We repent of our sins and ask you to forgive us this day! Have your way!... Holy spirit come! Let your glory fall like never before!
For we ask this in Jesus name!
Hallelujah! Amen!"

In Matt 24:10 Jesus predicts that in the endtime many will fall away The result is that they will hate one another, wickedness will be multiplied, and love will grow cold. Yet whoever endures in love until the end will be saved (vv. 11, 13)

Ephesians 5:16
Make the most of your time because the days are evil.

2Timothy 2:15
Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth. Avoid worthless, foolish talk that only leads to more godless behavior.

James 4:7
Submit to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you
