Which Word Does Not Apply Today?

16 08 2021

Fear not

The whole world is shaking. Time for a reality check. Should we be surprised to see the “perilous times” predicted by Paul the apostle? Consider the contrast between believers and unbelievers. Whether we are thinking of the Taliban or Antifa, or BLM rioters, this is the day Paul saw. In the following list, which does not apply to our culture today?

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.

2 Timothy 3:2-5

On the other hand, this is the day for believers to stand up for God’s Kingdom no matter the personal cost. Jesus said He will never leave us or forsake us. We have a living hope of eternal life with Him and all who love the glorious appearing of the Messiah Yeshua. Come quickly Lord Jesus! But in the meantime, we have a job to do and He is with us.

“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 3:12-17

Yehovah has provided all we need to be completely and thoroughly equipped. Hallelujah! More are they that are with us than they that are with them. Look into the spiritual realm and see the chariots of fire and the angels of Yehovah God surrounding and outnumbering our enemies. We have read the end of the Book, and we win!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and seasonal rain.
