DO YOU SEE WHAT’S  HAPPENING ? 

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was. But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,  and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work”. {2  Timothy 3:1‭-‬17}.

“However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ”. (1 Corinthians 2:6‭-‬16).

“The Lord has made bare His holy arm In the eyes of all the nations; And all the ends of the earth shall see The salvation of our God. Depart! Depart! Go out from there, Touch no unclean thing; Go out from the midst of her, Be clean, You who bear the vessels of the Lord . For you shall not go out with haste, Nor go by flight; For the Lord will go before you, And the God of Israel will  be your rear guard”.[Isaiah 52:10‭-‬12].

A PATH OF DESTRUCTION

2 Timothy 3:1-5
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
It’s amazing how people don’t realize that the events that took place centuries ago are still happening today. All the devil did was just change the name to make it appealing to every generation. There were false prophets among the people then, just as there are false prophets and teachers now. False prophets and teachers are among those who secretly introduce destructive heresies, deny the sovereign Lord who made them, and are oblivious of the fact that they bring swift destruction on themselves.

Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality, and because of them, Jesus  Christ and his truth is slandered. In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold  of your money. But God condemned them long ago and their destruction is on the way. For God did not spare even the angels when they sinned, He cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment (2 Peter 2:1-4).

We are living in the last days, as most of us who are not blind can see. That’s why the Bible reminds us in 2 Peter 3:3-4 that in the last days there will be scoffers (mockers, people who don’t care) who will laugh at the truth, and do every evil thing they desire; This will be their argument: “Jesus promised to come back, did He? Then where is He? Why, as far back as anyone can remember, everything has remained the same since the world was created?” However, if they follow the course of history and allow God to reveal His truth they would see the changes, because the natural man can’t receive the things of the Spirit of God, because they are foolishness to him (1 Corinthians 2:14).

For all those people who are searching for the Messiah and other ways to God, Jesus said it best in John 5:39-43,

“You search the scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life, and these are they which testify of me, but you are not willing to come to me that you may have life. I do not receive honor from men, but I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you; I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me; but if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.”

People in the latter days underestimate the power of God, totally forgetting or disregarding the fact that God did not spare the ancient world, except for Noah and his family of seven(Genesis 6-8). Noah warned the world of God’s righteous judgment, then God destroyed the whole world of ungodly people with a vast flood. Later He (God) turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into heaps of ashes, and swept them off the face of the earth, this you can read in Genesis 19. This was an example of what will happen to ungodly people; however He did rescue Lot who was righteous (2 Peter 2:5-10).

The Lord knows how and when to rescue godly people from their trials, even while punishing the wicked straight up to his return and judgement day. Matthew 5:19-20 tells us that,

“Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of Heaven; But whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven. For I say unto you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of Heaven.”

Which path are you on? What is your excuse now? What will it take? How long must God wait for you? Listen time is running out. Look around you, are things getting better or worse, doesn’t same-sex marriages remind you of Sodom and Gomorrah? Well if you are interested in turning your life around go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. This is not the time to play with God. Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God, Our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me to minister to His people. To Him belong  majesty, dominion, and power now and forever. May He also grant His children the spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding as they receive His word, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

LAST DAYS

1 Tim 3:1
THIS know also, that in the last days perilous (dangerous) times shall come {1 Timothy 3:1}.Perilous and dangerous things are happening worldwide, but our hope and safety is in our Lord Jesus Christ. And as 1 John 4:4-5 assures us,
“For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world,even our faith.Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God? Another assurance is when Jesus prayed for us in John 17: 9 & 15. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which you have given me; for they are yours.I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil. Thank God that this prayer of Jesus is still working for us today.In spite of what is going on around us in the world the Lord is on our side,and as Psalm 91:1-2 says,”He who dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty;I will say of the Lord,He is my refuge and my fortress,my God,in Him will I trust”. The children of God,should not be fearful or in a state of shock nor panic, because, if you read your Bible,it tells you of what will take place. Yet, we are assured that God will protect us and He will never leave nor forsake us. Why are we panicking when 2 Timothy 1:7 says,that God didn’t give us a spirit of fear but power,love,and a sound mind. And,Psalms 23:4 says,yea,though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil;for THOU art with me thy rod,and thy staff they comfort me. As Jesus said once,and is saying to Us,Oh ye of little faith,and in John 16:33 He reminds us that,In the world,ye shall have tribulation ;but we must be of good cheer ;for He has overcome the world. Now that’s reassuring if you are a believer and follower of Christ,but if you are not,please take this opportunity and get right with God through His only begotten Son,JESUS the CHRIST, by simple going to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions, then allow the Indwelling Holy Spirit to lead, guide, direct,and protect you for the rest of your life,Glory to God,have a blessed day.
