Introduction

: A follow-up of sorts or continuation from my message two weeks ago. Last week we spoke about the Temple Dedication but two weeks ago I spoke about the significance of God’s word.

‘We believe that all Scriptures are Inspired by God in a verbal, plenary way; the revelation of God to us; Infallible and inerrant and; The authority over our faith and living’.

Review

Verses 6-9 continue with Modus Operandi: method, manner, distinct pattern.

 

So What do we do?

 

Coming Soon Part 2

Transition

: The antidote is found in verses 10-17

2 Timothy 3:10-17

,



‘But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance,

11

persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra– what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me.

12

Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

13

But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

14

But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,

15

and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

17

that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work’.

(NKJ)
