The Last days!

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. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 KJV
These are the last days, dangerous times they are, and hard to bear.

"Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived" 2 Timothy 3:13. These evil men and seducers are none other than those prophets of ours, men who love only themselves, and this is true of many false prophets and false teachers out there. You hear them teach on prosperity, but don’t be fooled, it’s all about themselves living pretty and sending their children to best schools, even abroad.

They love only themselves, and their money, and many of them are;

1. CovetousJesus said on covetousness, "Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth" Luke 12:15. Be on the lookout for people who pretend to love you but have a covetous mindset. David lured Uriah for his wife.

2. BoastersJames 4:16 says, "But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil" Ephesians 2:9. Boasting about how wonderful you’re to all others is evil. It’s not of works my friend, lest any man should boast.

3. ProudThere are believers who are too proud and arrogant to believe they’re in the wrong. But God, and God will "plentifully rewardeth the proud doer" Psalm 31:23.

4. Blasphemers - are they who speak against the Holy Spirit. 
5. Disobedient to parentsChildren of disobedience (angels, sons or servants of God who sin wilfully) will receive a just recompense of reward - there is no escape.
6. UnthankfulUngrateful to parents 

7. UnholyProfane, disrespectful and sneering at God.
8.  Without natural affectionInhuman and unloving
9. Truce breakersIrreconcilable

10. False accusersMalicious gossips
11. IncontinentLacking self restraint 
12. FierceMurderous 
13. Despisers of those that are good,
14. TraitorsBetrayers
15. Headyalcoholic, reckless 

16.  High-minded - Conceited
17. Lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
18. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

The office of a bishop!

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach." 1 Timothy 3:2
You got to tick all the boxes to be a bishop, not to tick tick the only one box that suits you most, but all. It‘s not enough only to be able to teach whilst you fail on the other aspects. A bishop must be blameless and beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, not a bully, but gentle, considerate, and free from the love of money. Now consider also your leader, if he/she can teach, but falls short on the other characteristics then you should know you’re both liable to falling into the devil’s trap. How will he/she take care of the church of God while ethically wrong?
Paul says, "These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, …

Who are you following?

Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.
Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2 
 He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will. 
Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.

"Be not ye therefore partakers …

Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus!

"For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end" 2 Corinthians 1:13.
What is it that you read about and acknowledge?
When you read your Bible, all you see is grace of God, you see his promises too.
Two promises stand out; that of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is for us the grace of God and, ”all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us" 2 Corinthians 1:20.The Holy Ghost. Paul says, He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; "Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts" 2 Corinthians 1:21-22.

When you read your Bible, don’t be distracted from seeing both these two promises, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.  I trust ye shall be able to acknowledge their presence in your life and significance even to the end of your journey here on Earth. 
"For if these things be in you,…
