When others let us down

These words are real, raw and tender. Paul is about to close his last letter. He will soon breathe his last as he will be executed for the faith. He writes to Timothy to be diligent to come to him quickly (2 Tim 4:9). Paul longed to see his young prodigy. One last meeting thisContinue reading “When others let us down”

Have you experienced this?

I know I’m slow-walking through the end of Second Timothy. It’s just so packed-full of truth that even parts of sentences stop me in my tracks. “Be diligent to come to me quickly; for Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world,” (2 Tim 4:9) Those who love the world, it’s comforts and pleasuresContinue reading “Have you experienced this?”

“I have fought the good fight.I have finished the race.I have kept the faith.

Preach the Word! Don’t change the message!

These words were written to those who would seek to follow the Lord, those suffering for the faith, those not yet born, and those who would live in the End of Days.

When you see demonic forces winning…

Paul is talking about the end of days when he suddenly brings up the two magicians with demonic powers who challenged Moses.(2 Tim 3:8-9) Jannes and Jambres were able to turn a rod into a serpent, change water to blood, and bring about a plague of frogs; but in the end, their dark powers wereContinue reading “When you see demonic forces winning…”

Let’s Put out the fires of wrong thinking.

Yesterday, we looked at Paul’s description of end time days being full of people who are lovers of themselves and how this self-enthroned living can lead to most of the other characteristics he lists in 2 Tim 3:1-5. I think it is important to be on guard to some of the ways the evil oneContinue reading “Let’s Put out the fires of wrong thinking.”

Do you wonder if we are living in the last days?

I can’t read these words and not wonder if we are living in the last days— “But know this, in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors,Continue reading “Do you wonder if we are living in the last days?”
