“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires.”
2 Timothy 4:3
We are inundated daily with news reports about riots, destructive protests, marches for unbiblical and sinful practices, and obscene language and gestures of ‘political correctness’ towards anyone that disagrees with their point of view. The beauty of America’s Constitution and freedom allows for PEACEFUL dissent, but when you constantly witness vicious attacks on people with religious morals, beliefs and values AND know that this was prophesied in the Bible to happen in the Last Days, you must sit back and question how much longer will Believers exist in this world. What you never see are true Christians rioting against these people. You don’t see them burning down buildings and fighting police. The majority of these events ARE NOT in support of Christianity but rather are an all out war against what Jesus and the Bible teaches. Why is that?
“But realize this, that IN THE LAST DAYS (capitals mine) difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of truth.”
2 Timothy 3:1-7
I believe most will agree with God’s description of these rioters! Of course many would argue we have always had these people amongst us and certainly we have all been guilty of many of these transgressions. But the key phrase “…rather than lovers of God” is the basis for the depravity that is centralized in their thought process and actions. If they loved God and obeyed His Word, these activities would certainly cease in a minute. Instead, they use principals that they have interpreted for their benefit to tell us that they are right and we are wrong. For example, they tout that it is a woman’s right to choose if she will have a baby but ignore the fact that the Bible says, “Before I (God) formed you in the womb I knew you And before you were born I consecrated you.” (Jeremiah 1:5) Also, if you believe God created life, His 6th Commandment ” You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13) draws the line that cannot be crossed. But, this does not fit their narrative so they continue to push Satan’s agenda. And, it is Satan’s agenda and it will only get worse!
“But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
2 Timothy 3:13
By simply stating the obvious of what the Bible says about the declining nature of unbelieving mankind in these Last Days, I am sure I will see some unsubscribe from my blog and “de-friend” me for simply repeating what the Bible has always said will happen. However, some day I will stand in front of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and strongly believe I will never need to apologize for repeating any of HIS comments in the Bible. I sincerely hope and pray that anyone that disagrees with that premise will ask themselves, “Am I actually doing all that the Lord commanded I do?” Will we be persecuted for these beliefs? Absolutely! It is happening today.
“Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Jesus Christ will be persecuted.”
2 Timothy 3:12
In my preparation for this blog I came across a very interesting Scripture that goes right to the heart of my message:
“When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to the evildoers.”
Whenever you see the news on TV or in the media and you see people praising the efforts to bring Christian morals and values back to America, you will always see the “Left” respond with terror. The fact that Christ’s commandments are being followed would pulverize the unbelievers even though it would bring most of us great joy. This blog has never been about Republican or Democrat. Rather it is about what the Bible teaches us on how we should live and believe. I do find it absolutely fascinating that 2,000 years ago the Bible prophesied about the “right” and the “left”, a mantra that exists todays with the beliefs of various people in the US and in the world. It is easily identified by all regardless of their political affiliation and is an acceptable definition based on their belief or unbelief in what the Bible says.
“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory the Second Coming at Armageddon), and all the angels with Him, then he will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him; and he will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His RIGHT (capitals mine) and the goats on His LEFT (capitals mine). Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”
“Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels.”
Christ’s message here differentiated the sheep from the goats and how they treated others, not necessarily what they said. We cannot claim to be Christian and then fail to do what Jesus has told us to do. IF we follow His Words and believe that He died for our sins, we will be saved! To me that is extremely comforting and I only wish through this blog to “…comfort one another with these words.”
