Today we read the third chapter of the Apostle Paul’s Second letter to Timothy and two chapters of Jeremiah.
September 27: 2 Timothy 3 , Jeremiah 25, Jeremiah 26 (click on the chapter to begin reading).
2 Timothy 3. The apostle Paul spoke of perilous times and perilous men, but as for Timothy, he was to be the man of God, and keep in mind“ All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
Jeremiah 25. God gave Jeremiah this big prophesy: Seventy years of captivity and judgment on the nations.
Jeremiah 26. For giving bad news Jeremiah received death threats, but the priests managed to hold off the mob with pointing out what was prophesied is consistent with earlier prophecies, so he was let free (for a while).
