RAINING TRUTH WATERING THE GARDEN
Watering the Garden
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, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (2nd Timothy 3:1-5)
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. (2nd Peter 3:3-4)
Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. (James 5:3)
In the New Testament Timothy, Peter and James describe what the world would be like in the latter days. Timothy speaks of perilous times consisting of self centered people who have a form of godliness, but deny the power of God. Peter describes scoffers who would be making fun of Christians and James speaks of irrelevant riches being gathered.
Concerning the last days keep in your mind these scriptures. “The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust him.” Nahum 1:7 “Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” Psalms 50:15 Our Father knows those who trust in him.
WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?
Timothy, Peter and James warn us that self-centered, scoffers who store up riches that have no eternal value will be prevalent in the latter days.
Our Father appreciates the fact that you are trying. May God’s blessing be upon this
study of His word, Amen.
