Perilous Times

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. 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. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 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.
