If there is ever a time when we need to read, study, and obey the Word of God, it is now. The tide of lawlessness, spreading like wildfire, can be tempered when Christians know His Word and can accurately apply it to improve their lives and those around them.
As the seismic tremors of deception attempt to penetrate the church, those who are "rooted and grounded" in God's Word can become effective witnesses in combating this evil end-time occurrence.
Paul, the apostle, writing to his protege Timothy, warned of the events of the "last days." He wrote, "But know this, that in the last days, perilous times will come" (2 Timothy 3:1). He noted nineteen vices that would grip society and become evident as people's hearts deteriorate and become increasingly wicked. Notably, these vices fostered by deception and indifference to God and His Word bring Paul's prophetic writing to reality.
This commentary provides an in-depth study of the book of 2 Timothy. It was written to:
encourage believers to "study to shew themselves approved unto God,"
"rightly divide the word of truth" that will enable them to avoid the pitfalls of deception,
promote a better understanding of who God is,
grow in their faith and become mature believers,
and facilitate further reflection with the goal of becoming lifelong students of the Word of God.
