“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (II Timothy 3:1-7)
The sadder part is it is also the church today. I said in my “Our Society” Blog Posted 12-22-2014 “‘Christianity’ was to put a stop to the confusion in God’s Church. (Posted at this Website) It was to set things in order. Since people associate church with God they started viewing God by the church. People also saw the biggest hypocrites were in church. In turn that turned people against God.” This is a “Pin” in “God’s System Helps Center Pinterest:”
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable. – Brennan Manning
It is sad, but it is true. Christians look more like the world than the world does. Christians are to be “in” the world not “of” the world. Being a Christian is like being a lady. I should not have to tell you I am one. People should be able to see it in our actions and our lifestyles. People should be making, “You must be a Christian” statements to us.
When Christians profess Jesus it means we are professing we represent God. Christians cannot represent Jesus being hateful. Church folk can be some of the most hateful folk in the world. Christians cannot represent Jesus with every other word being a cuss word. Christians cannot represent Jesus having riots:
“Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” (II Timothy 3:8-13)
Persecution is part of the Christian’s Walk. Jesus is our Example. He showed us how to deal with persecution, which was with the Word of God:
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto 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 perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” (II Timothy 3:14-17)
Enduring persecution means being the bigger person. I said in my “Totally Innocent!!!” Blog Posted 12-15-2014 “Bigger person just means representing God and His Will comes before anything else.” I also said in that Blog “God honors people that are the bigger person.”
I said in my “Simplicity!” Blog Posted 12-20-2014 “The Purpose of my book, “The Trilogy” is to show that the Bible is Truth. We do that by living out the Bible, which is what I do in my book. The Bible IS “God’s living and active Word that brings life:”
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)
Christians must walk in this world like Jesus did. The Word of God must be made flesh in us. When Christians do that after the statement the next question is, “What do I have to do to have what you have?” Through our actions we just brought life to that person, which is what Jesus died for. Jesus wants us to have life and have life more abundantly.
The Excerpt in that Blog stated, “WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT THROUGH HIS CHILDREN GOD DID WRITE THE BIBLE.” That means people can take the Bible as Truth. People have lost how valuable the Bible is. The Bible is “able to make thee wise,” “profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” That is how we learn how to walk as Jesus walked. That is also how we become, “perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”
The Excerpt in my “Bible Study: I Timothy 6” Blog states, “Now God is stepping in to Re-Birth His Church in 2014.” God has already stepped in with “The Re-Birth Of Christianity.” (Posted at this Website) That means “The Rapture” is ready to go. In that Blog was “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only,” which means we must stay ready.
In “Christianity” it states, “Evangelist – Work in the field only – I Corinthians 12:28.” That is in my daily Bible reading today. Evangelists are sitting in church every Sunday with positions in the church while the world goes to Hell. Evangelists called by God are in the battlefield. The battlefield is the world. My daily Bible reading today also confirmed this Blog:
“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” (II Timothy 4:1-5)
I want to wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous 2015! 2015 must be the year Christians start representing God like Jesus did, which means we must be busy about our Father’s Business. 2015 must be the year Christians start giving God Glory. 2015 must be the year for the world to be able to tell the difference between us and them. 2015 must be the year for Christians to get back to the Word of God.
CHRISTIANS!!! THE WORLD IS WATCHING US AND WHAT THEY ARE SEEING NOW IS MAKING GOD LOOK BAD.
