FROM SUCH TURN AWAY
2Timothy KJV / 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
My brothers, the perilous times of the last days spoken of here are now upon us. Read carefully the following verses of God's Word. When you read the actions of the following words, look around you, and please see that all of these acts are here now.
2Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Do people now love their own selves? Selfishness abounds everywhere!
Do they covet? People now want what someone else has more that ever before!
Are they boasters? They tell everyone what they have, and what they seek after!
Are they proud? Pride in themselves & what they have are all that they know!
Do they blaspheme? They use God's name & Jesus' name in vain, to be humorous!
Disobedience? For the most part children are disobedient to parents today!
Are they unthankful? Absolutely, they believe that they deserve more, & more!
Are they unholy? The majority of this word is unholy in almost every way!
2Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Are they without natural affection? Homosexuality is common place in most areas!
Do they break truces? Everyday and everywhere, they say one thing & do another!
Are they incontinent? They know no restraint. Whatever they think, they do!
Are they fierce? Most allow anger to flow like the river flows from the mountain!
Do they despise us? The world hates us to the point that they now kill us!
2Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Are they traitors? They will tell your enemy's where you may be found!
Are they heady? Reckless, careless, head strong - Yes they are!
Are they highminded? They put themselves above all others, and everything!
Do they love pleasures more than God? ABSOLUTELY!
2Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Do they have a form of godliness, but deny the power of God? You bet they do! They will pretend to be of God, but refuse to live as God has commanded us to do. They deny that he has any power what so ever. If you quote a bible verse to them, they say where is the proof of what you say. They do no have any faith in God, but rather they only have faith in themselves. We are told here in this last verse of 2 Timothy 3:5 that we are to turn away from all who walk as the above mentioned people walk.
Brothers, have no part with those people of this day who fall into the category of each of those traits listed above in verses 2-5. Have no part with them.
God Bless you my brothers,
