Know also!

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:1 KJV

Know also, that

Men shall be high minded; they shall love even the bible more than they love God. But don’t be deceived, for even though they love the bible, they despise those things good in it.

They shall be "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 3:4-5.

Paul says, these preachers creep into houses, and control the minds/hearts of the simple, and turn them away from the faith.

"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" 2 Timothy 3:2. It is not the will of God important to them, but their own bellies, and their own lusts. That important for this generation is loving themselves.

"Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth" 2 Timothy 3:7.

What’s exalted among some believers is the bible, ministry and a man/woman of God, but not God. The love for Him sometimes isn’t genuine. They know the bible cover to cover, but they do so not know God, but for advantage, "...so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith" 2 Timothy 3:8.

Paul rightly said, "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves .... highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

Turn away from these false teachers and prophets.

God bless,

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.

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, …

Why we go to church

Church is a place where the Lord your God has chosen to place his name there.

Moses said, thou shalt go there, "and worship before the Lord thy God" Deuteronomy 26:10.

You go to Church to worship the Lord, and to "rejoice in every good thing which the Lord thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house..." Deuteronomy 26:11. While there also you petition the Lord to bless you too.

Deuteronomy 26:16-19 says, "This day the Lord thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. Thou hast avouched the Lord this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice: And the Lord hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, a…
