‘There are many “gods” and many “lords” (1 Corinthians 8:5)
Paul said that during perilous times, people will be lovers of themselves, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, haters of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of money and pleasure rather than lovers of God, and having a form of godliness but denying its power. For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; (1Timothy3:1-8). There’s no doubt that we are living in perilous times, a difficult season- a period where you can’t discern who’s who spiritually without having a real revelatory gift of God. An elevated level of deceivers have emerged and are operating mainly within the “Christian churches” calling themselves prophets, apostles, pastors and bishops.
Paul compared these who will arise in the last days to oppose the truth of God with the story of Moses and Jannes and Jambres. Paul said the same way Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses in the presence of Pharaoh, would be the same method that the diviners, sorcerers, and the psychics who will secretly introduce destructive teachings in the church will resist the truth. Paul called them men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith (2Timothy3:8). Moses and Aaron were true prophets of God, while Jannes and Jambres were the chief magicians of Pharaoh (Exodus7, 8). Moses and Aaron had the genuine power of God and divine message to call the people of God out of sin and bondage, but Jannes and Jambres apparently had “astonishing” magical powers without an accurate revelation of God, their works was to make Israelite’s not to leave Egypt – Jannes and Jambres wanted believers in GOD to remain earthly conscious, instead of Kingdom minded. These things are currently taking place in Christian churches. There are many magicians and ritualists disguising their shrines as churches.
