Difficult Times Ahead In The Last Days

7 and are always learning something new, and yet are never able to arrive at real knowledge of the truth. 8 And just as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so also these false teachers withstand the truth--being, as they are, men of debased intellects, and of no real worth so far as faith is concerned. 9 But they will have no further success; for their folly will be as clearly manifest to all men, as that of the opponents of Moses came to be.
