As the Apostle Paul writes his last letter to Timothy and prepares to leave this Earth for Heaven, he reminds Timothy in this last chapter of II Timothy that he needs to be ready to preach the word in season and out of season. He warns him that people will not want to hear sound doctrine as the last days progress. He encourages Timothy to remain strong during those times and continue on fulfilling his call to ministry. Paul gives us some personal insight in to his own life at that time that teaches us that sometimes we too will be abandoned by friends due to or faithful stand in the Lord.

Refusal to build God's temple (i.e. doing God's Kingdom work) causes God to withhold His blessings. But saying "Yes" to God in obedience to Him (not straying from His will, but doing His will) will unleash God's blessings in our lives and in our churches. It will bring glory to God!
In Chapter 3 the Apostle Paul talks to Timothy about the perilous times and men that lay ahead. He warns them about the last days. He continues to remind him to stick to scripture which is inspired by God.

In Chapter 5 of Acts we learn how members of the Church on Fire are vey in tuned with the Holy Spirit and His leading. Ananias and Saphira try to deceive the Holy Spirit and the leadership of God's church. God reminds the church that deception is not acceptable, that lying comes from Satan, the Father of Lies. As the chapter progresses the Apostles are arrested and continue to stand strong for the Lord and see His protection throughout the situation.
Strongholds need to be removed from our lives.
