LOOKING UNTO JESUS And at nothing else, as our text expresses it in one untranslatable word (aphoroontes), which at the same time directs us to fix our gaze upon Him, and to turn it away from everything else.                                             


Jeremiah 44:24-47:7
2 Timothy 2:22-3:17

Summary: Godlessness in the Last Days, All Scripture Is Breathed Out by God


Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will. ~ 2 Timothy 2:23-26


the snare of the devil. Deception is Satan’s trap. He is an inveterate, scheming, clever, and subtle purveyor of lies. ~ John MacArthur


The first thing Jesus says in Matthew 24:3-14 about Signs of the End of the Age is “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” ~ Matthew 24:4 WARNING us that deception will be rampant in the end days. Nowadays deception is about as evil as it gets. Even people who you think are Christian are being deceived and teaching people what is contrary to the truth in the Bible.

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.
~ 2 Timothy 3:1-7

God’s word the Bible never changes. It is the only truth and you can not change it to say what you want it to say. Know your Bible.

Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
~ 2 Timothy 3:12-17

It is important to note that inspiration applies only to the original autographs of Scripture, not the Bible writers; there are no inspired Scripture writers, only inspired Scripture. So identified is God with His Word that when Scripture speaks, God speaks (Rom 9:17; Gal 3:8). Scripture is called “the oracles of God” (Rom 3:2; 1Pe 4:11), and cannot be altered (Joh 10:35; Mat 5:17-18; Luke 16:17; Rev 22:18-19).  MacArthur Bible Commentary
