Today we read the third chapter of Second Timothy and two chapters of Jeremiah.
2 Timothy 3. The apostle Paul speaks of perilous Times and perilous men, but you, Timothy is to be the man of God, and remember “ 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. Here it comes; Jeremiah prophesies seventy years of captivity and judgment on the nations.
Jeremiah 26. For giving bad news Jeremiah gets death threats, but the priests manages to hold off the mob and point out that what is prophesied is consistent with earlier prophecies, so he is going free (for now).
