We are living out what the Bible calls ‘Perilous Times’. First we are hit with what many believe to be the manufactured COVID-19 virus that almost brought our nation to a permanent standstill. Now the nation is experiencing riots all around the country were businesses and personal property are systematically destroyed all in the name of justice… The enemy is hard at work.
But there is glorious light and blessings at the end of the tunnel. Exposure, justice, judgment, and restoration. God is in the business of saving people, showing His goodness, and bringing honor and glory to His name. As you read the scripture below, let it reflect on the world around you today. How much can you relate too? The last verse is very telling and from the context, I believe it possibly refers to the period of the last days mentioned in verse 1 while the church is still present on earth.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was. 2 Timothy 3:1-9
Prayer is powerful and more often than not, we forget how powerful it really is. The link below is one of the best reads I have read concerning prayer. Pray for our country and administration. Pray for restoration.
We know that God, for His reasons alone, puts people in power to bless the people or judge the people.
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Romans 13:1-4
Right now America is in a fight for her very soul. The events happening around the country on a national and state level are staggering. It is no longer about Republican vs Democrat, but rather Tyranny vs Liberty.
Our nation is under a spiritual attack like never before and the enemy is doing everything in his power to destroy it. The spiritual warfare is at a height. We know that:“we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Eph. 6:12
In the video below, President Trump gave this speech just before the presidential election of 2016. One could almost say it is eerily prophetic to what we see happening around the nation today. Our nation is at a crossroads. I see the good and the evil pushing as hard as they may. In the end, I believe the prayers of the people will prevail, for it is not yet time for the days of evil and there is yet a short period of better days ahead. Pray for the President and his administration. Pray for revival. Pray for Justice.
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9
The move, first reported by the Associated Press, comes more than two years after Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents about his discussions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States in the weeks before President Donald Trump took office.
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. 11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. 12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; 14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet. 17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 2 Peter 9-17.
