Sermonette: Who Were Jannes and Jambres?
Those Who Oppose God
Given 08-May-04; 13 minutes
Scripture says little of the magicians Jannes and Jambres, the contemporaries of Moses referred to by Paul in II Timothy, but more information is found in extra-biblical sources. Their chief character traits include rebellion, obduracy, and stubbornness, acknowledging or recognizing the truth, but adamantly refusing to yield to it and refusing to repent — reaping hideous curses. Their obduracy was a contributory cause of Egypt's demise. Their example warns us that in these last days there will also be people who adamantly resist God, but will ultimately perish in the lake of fire. We need to take heed not to follow their example.
