Paul in writing to Timothy and Jude [Judah] - the brother of our LORD Jesus spoke of perilous times.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come…”

“In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires...”

“For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear….”

We are now witnessing the selfishness and utter godlessness of the last days - perilous times are upon us.

The changes we will be facing in the months ahead will catch unprepared and undiscerning Christians off guard. It will throw many into a panic and set them up for a powerful delusion as described in 2 Thessalonians 2 and Matthew 24.  This deception - already underway - includes redefining the identity of Christ Jesus. It will be accompanied by a growing hatred and disdain for His followers.

As society moves further and further away from truth and moral absolutes, self deification and the pursuit of complete personal freedom; an anything goes mindset is developing. Christians must remain faithful and loyal to our LORD. We must take inventory of our lives, rooting out the sins of the world, not falling for the subtle deceptions of satan. We must yield ourselves completely to the Holy Spirit.

This is not a bad dream from which we will awaken, it is the reality of 2013. His remnant must be prepared. We must not grow faint over what we see coming our way. Instead, let us be bold and obedient to follow our LORD wherever He may lead.

Obedient without Fear

"The LORD is with me, I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Psalm 118:6

Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 22:2
