    Amazing how many people dismiss audience relevance.

    The passage in the OP is future tense, though Paul's missives are almost entirely eschatological. He echoes the imminence of the end that Jesus warned of.

    And of course, some time after writing to Timothy, Paul actually did witness the end of the age; that is, if he had not died until the year 67 and after Rome had surrounded Jerusalem with her armies, as Jesus foretold.
