We are living in some evil times. As the word of God says in 2 Timothy 3:1- But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come. We are literally seeing the rise of the dark kingdom before our eyes. And they enemy is coming in the church, with evil doctrines that is beguiling the church. As the word of God says in 1 Timothy 4:1- Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving head to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons. Meaning that they are going to distort the truth with complete lies. As the word of God says in 1 Timothy 4:2-speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron. Saints we have to be careful to what are ears are perceiving in these evil days. I believe this is a trap of the devil. And unless we stay grounded and rooted in the word of God, not listening to doctrines of men, which can catch you. As the word of God says in Colossians 2:4- Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words. and as Colossians 2:8- Bewared lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. He is the absolute truth. God's word are not tainted. As the word of God says in Psalm 12:6- The words of the Lord are pure words, Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, Purified seven times. You need to hold on to God's word dearly, it is the only thing that will help you to stand when tribulation like never before will come. As the word of God says in Matthew 24:21- For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no , nor ever shall be.And remember wolves will go in the church to drag God's saints away from the light of gospel. To bring in their own doctrines. As the word of God says in Acts 20:29,30- For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves. It does not matter what men think , we want to go to heaven. When the enemy tempts you to side with the world. You tell him that you mind is set on heaven and it is worth suffering for Christ. Because we have an inheritance waiting on us. As the word of God says in 1 Peter 1:4- to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you. Yes we are being pressed down all sides but not crushed. As the word of God says in 2 Corinthians 4:8,9- We are hard -pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed , but not in despair,persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down but not destroyed. You are strong in the Lord, and even people rejected you for Christ. You are doing God's will, because they do not want to hear the truth. And you rather be heaven than burning in hell. Living for Christ is worth and dying for him. Just remember to pick up your cross and follow him.As the word of God says in Luke 9:23- Then He said to them all, " If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.God speed in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.
If you want to have a relationship Jesus say this prayer: Lord Jesus I believe in your sacrificial death, that you died for a transgressor like me. And you paid the price for me so I can truly be set free from the sin that holds me down. I ask for you cleansing blood to take away all my evil deeds, and give me a new heart and new spirit, and destroy this old temple, and raise up the new temple in me, by filling me up with your Holy Spirit. IN Jesus Name. AMen
