Perilous times shall come!

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

Perilous times shall come; and here is how you will know; "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 3:3-5.

What it means, as believers your faith is exposed to imminent risk of disaster or ruin, "and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold" Matthew 24:12.

Iniquity is in nothing but our conduct. Paul said men, meaning you and me shall be lovers of our own-selves. It’s not only the people in world who are proud, but us christians also. It’s not sinners but believers who’ve a form of godliness, who are unholy, trucebreakers, false accusers, traitors, heady, highminded and despisers of those that are good. It’s the Christian capable of resisting the Holy Ghost.

Perilous times shall come, "the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron" In 1 Timothy 4:1-2.

Danger isn’t in the world, but is among us people who believe. It’s us who make life difficult for those who believe.  I hear the Lord say, "And a man's foes shall be they of his own household" Matthew 10:36. False prophets and false teachers are they who make it difficult, precarious and hazardous for believers who want to keep the faith. These resist, even vain talkers and deceivers and gainsayers.

Perilous times shall come, and folks these already are the last days. I trust in the living God, that you will be different, and be able to keep the faith, and in all manner of your conversations, "exercise thyself rather unto godliness" 1 Timothy 4:7. Love the people of God; "be sober, just, holy, and temperate" Titus 1:8. Above this allow,  the Holy Ghost to keep you in sound doctrine.

God bless,
Laurence

The mystery of the kingdom of God

And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them, Mark 4:11-12 KJV.
The secret of the kingdom of God is given to you who look and perceive, listen and understand, you such as have teachable hearts which can easily be converted towards the way of salvation.
But the unbelievers are not so, they’re spiritually blind, they see, but perceive not; they hear but do not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. Many is  because, instead of responding to the gospel in faith, they were rejecting it, and are such as would not receive further truth.
Now listen my friend, Jesus said, "If anyone has ears to hear, let him listen." And he said to them, "Pay at…

You need deliverance?

Jesus and his disciples arrived in the country of the Gerasenes, 
And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him, Mark 5:2-4.
His demonic strength kept anyone from being able to bind or team him, but by night and day his screams were heard as he slit himself with stones.
But upon seeing Jesus the man bowed down before him and the demon cried out, "What do you have to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you before God, don't torment me!" For Jesus had been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!” 
Jesus asked the demon his name. My name is Legion; for we are many, he replied. The demon continued begging Jesus not to send them…

They were offended at him!

But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house, Mark 6:4 KJV.
Jesus came to Nazareth, His hometown, accompanied by His disciples. On the Sabbath he was asked to speak in the synagogue and those who listened were astonished, marveling at His wisdom and wondering about its source. They also wondered about the miracles He was performing. 
"Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him, Mark 6:3.
He came to his country, to his own people in order to bless them, but marvelled because of their unbelief, and that prevented him from doing a miracle there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them, but instead "he went round about the villages, teaching" Mark 6:6.
Why couldn’t he do anymore miracles there? It’s because they scrutinised him, judged him, and cr…
