“In 2 Timothy 3:8, we read, “Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth; men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.” Here we learn the names of two of the magicians (doubtless the principal ones) who worked miracles in Egypt. Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses. They did this not by having him turned out of the king’s palace, not by causing him to be imprisoned or slain, but by duplicating his works. And, says the Holy Spirit, there are those now who similarly resist the servants of God — “as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these (the ones mentioned in vv. 5 and 6 also resist the truth”. This is one of the Divinely-delineated characteristics of the “perilous times”. The reference is to men (and women) supernaturally endowed by Satan to work miracles. Such are found to-day, we believe, not only among Spiritualists and Christian Scientists, but also in some of the leaders of the Faith-healing cults. There are men and women now posing as evangelists of Christ who are attracting large crowds numbered by the thousand. Their chief appeal is not the message they bear, but their readiness to “anoint” and pray over the sick. They claim that “Jesus” (they never own Him as “the Lord Jesus”), in response to their faith, has through them removed paralysis, healed cancers, given sight to the blind. When their claims are carefully investigated it is found that most of the widely-advertised “cures” are impostures.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “Gleanings in Exodus” by A. W. Pink (1886–1952)
