2Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous (through the idea of reducing the strength; times that will tend to sap your strength).times shall come,

2Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,.(more bad stuff).(?)

2Timothy 3:3 without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers.(who is behind this accusing falsely of others, prompting people who are unwilling to make the right choice toward a higher consciousness life.(*), mostly because of an advantage they would receive? Such was the way of the betrayer of Emmanuel, Judas Iscariot), incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2Timothy 3:4.Traitors, heady, highminded.(prideful {the wrong kind of it}), lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God,

2Timothy 3:5.Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such turn away.(1John 2:15).
The verse is saying to stay away from those not allowing the high consciousness of God to affect their lives, those who may go to church, yet their lives fail to reflect anything learned their that could improve their character. And why would anyone want to improve their character? This verse is saying to not waste one's time with those determined to drive in a different direction, these ones steeped in living from their ordinary consciousness, those still needing more bangs and knocks of life to steer them to where they can be receptive to an awakening, but some, like ancient Saul (1Samuel 15:25-35), didn't take God seriously, I guess Saul really just didn't believe to any depth, his mind mostly on himself.

On having a form of godliness; comprised from Eclectic Notes:."From Munich to Innsbruck I traveled with a young Frenchman and two Italians, the one a cardinal and the other apparently his secretary...We were much struck by seeing them for nearly an hour occupied in repeating the evening prayers from their breviaries. It seemed as if it would never be over. But the way in which they did it was exactly that of a schoolboy humming over his lessons. They corrected one another...opened the windows, shut them down, had a few words of conversation now and then. This reminded me very strongly how inevitable a tendency there is in all forms, even the best, to lose all the spirit which once animated them and become like lifeless corpses. No doubt those prayers were once the expression of true and fervid feeling. Now, a very cardinal can scarcely go through them without yawning."....Frederick W Robertson, Letter, Sept. 18th 1846, as reported by Charles H Spurgeon.

2Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,.(Habakkuk 2:15)

2Timothy 3:7 Ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Comprised with.Barnes Notes: They may learn many things, but the true.nature of spirituality they do not learn. There are many such persons in the world, who, whatever attention they may pay to religion/spiritual things, never understand its nature. Many engage in speculative.acquaintance with the doctrines of Christianity, but leave off efforts toward continual growth, such as using the four disciplines. Many study the constitution and government of some church, but remain strangers to practical piety. Many become familiar with the various philosophical.theories.of.religion, but never become truly acquainted with what spirituality really is:.1John 2:12-14. Many also embrace.visionarytheories, who never show that they are influenced by the Spirit of the gospel. Nothing is more common than for persons to be very busy and active with the physical things of some religion, even learning many things about it and still remain strangers to God:.verse 5 above.
2Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres.(Exodus 7:11).withstood Moses.(Exodus 14:10-12), so do these also resist the truth. Men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

1Timothy 3:11 Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers.(original is 'devil'), sober, faithful in all things.

2Timothy 3:12 Yea and all that will live godly.(spiritual things most important in their lives).in Christ Emmanuel suffer.persecution.
Original for 'suffer persecution' is 'run from', 'flee', 'drive away' stay away from those averse to your living differently from them. The verse means that those of the same high consciousness Christ is, will see some persecution in their lives, be it comments, etc. and this because rank and file humanity is steeped in their selfish 'I care only for me' living and you're not that way..(*)
2Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

2Timothy 3:14 But continue you in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them;

2Timothy 3:15 And that from a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation.through faith.(how?).which is in Christ Emmanuel.
Comprised from.Barnes Notes: Paul in his letters to Timothy was committing to him an important trust, one that required great wisdom and fidelity.and that in doing it he was acting with the hopes which he had cherished respecting Timothy, hopes because of Timothy's training when a child by his mother and grandmother:.2Timothy 1:5. Paul expressed anticipations about Timothy's influence in the church. The hope had been entertained that Timothy would be a man to whom important trusts might be committed and it had been predicted that he would be distinguished as a friend of those in the early body of Christ and able to provide further spiritual help to those he now had influence over. These hopes seem to have been cherished in consequence of the early in life careful training which Timothy had and probably from Timothy's early indications of seriousness, prudence and piety. It was natural to entertain such hopes and it seems, from this place, that such hopes had even assumed the form of predictions..(?)
2Timothy 3:16.All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for correction, for instruction in righteousness
2Timothy 3:16.All scripture.(a scripture is a holy writing, that is, a maxim that contributes to becoming whole {holy} as the Creator is whole and how is the Creator whole? 'all scripture' refers to the missing books of the Bible now found and soon to be released).is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine.(for teaching; to be taught from), for reproof.(or, for proving; the same word in the original Greek is translated 'evidence' in Hebrews 11:1; the.Bible.is the basis for humanity's life), for correction, for instruction in righteousness.(Ephesians 4:24 "And that you put on the new man.(*), which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness")..(*)
2Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.(in the original it's words 'throughly furnished' meaning 'completely finished':.Hebrews 12:2).

2Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God and the Lord Emmanuel the Christ, who shall judge the quick.(living).and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

2Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.
People generally want to hear words that make them feel that their ways are ok:.Proverbs 14:12; Jeremiah 44:16,17.
2Timothy 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth and toward fables.
Isaiah 30:10.
2Timothy 4:5 But watch you in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry.

2Timothy 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand.

2Timothy 4:7 I have fought a good fight.(what's a good fight mean here?.1Timothy 6:12), I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.

2Timothy 4:8.Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness.(*), which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day. And not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
If you love His appearing you have no fear over His coming, because you're sure you are clean. Why is he a 'righteous judge'? Because he doesn't judge at all! How can you be anything but righteous if you take no action one way or the other? It's the universal spiritual laws set up before.(*).humanity or the universe was made that judge one:.Ephesians 3:9. These spiritual laws include reaping what one has sown. All spiritual laws are automatic and it's them that judges.
2Timothy 4:10 For Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world and is departed unto Thessalonica, Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

2Timothy 4:11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark and bring him with you. For he is profitable to me for the ministry.

2Timothy 4:12 And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.

2Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil. The Lord reward him according to his works.(?).

2Timothy 4:15 Of whom be you aware also, for he has greatly withstood our words.
Here it sounds as if Paul was vindictive, but he wasn't. Paul's concern was for all to be saved:.1Corinthinans 5:5; 1Timothy 1:20; 4:10.
2Timothy 4:17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, that by me the preaching might be fully known and that all the Gentiles might hear and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

2Timothy 4:18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom. To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen..(?)

2Timothy 4:19 Salute Prisca and Aquila.(Acts 18:26).and the household of Onesiphorus.

2Timothy 4:22 The Lord Emmanuel the Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.
The second epistle unto Timotheus, ordained the first bishop of the church of the Ephesians, was written from Rome, when Paul was brought before Nero the second time.
