Topic: We Are Inching Closer To The Last Days [Friday August 4, 2017]
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” 2 Timothy 3:1
Without any shadow of a doubt, we are getting closer to the last day. If Paul talked about the last days when he started the ministry, the truth is that we are now in the last of the last days. Evil is being celebrated today in every nook and cranny. It is no longer fashionable to live right. It is not fashionable to keep your body undefiled. Cults that used to be secret cults are now openly displayed.
Evil is being perpetrated on our streets. X-rated films that were forbidden during children belt on television are now played at all times without care of who is watching. Today, we are not talking about perilous times coming, beloved, they are now here.
According to the Bible: as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the last days. We are inching very close to the last days. What was it in the days of Noah? There were all kinds of immorality and all kinds of demonic activities. Today we are seeing Sodomy being paraded on our streets. It was so bad that Noah stood as the odd man in the entire city. Is that not like what we see today? Those who stand for what is right are now being blackmailed. Ladies are ashamed of chastity. Beloved, no matter how bad it gets, you must never allow the world form your opinion or your philosophy of life. Your philosophy of life must be based on God’s word.
I don’t care what your lecturer told you. I don’t care what you read in books. It is wrong for anyone who is not a Christian to be your mentor or your role model. Yes, we can celebrate whatever they have achieved and thank God for them, but they shouldn’t be your role model. Look unto Jesus! He is your perfect example! Don’t let the success and the things you see make you choose a homosexual as your role model. That is an aberration! It is unacceptable! Remember, you are the light of the world. So let the light of God in you shine into your world.
