Text Scripture: 2 Timothy 3:1-7 As believers, we must be conscious of happenings in the last days and beware of fake adulterated Christians who portray themselves as children of God but are wolves in sheep clothings. The Bible describes the last days as follows: 1. Difficult times 2. People will love money and be selfish 3. People will be boastful and proud 4. Unloving and unforgiving 5. Nothing will be sacred to many 6. Slander 7. Lack of self-control 8. Cruelty and hatred towards what are good 9. Betrayal of friends 10. Recklessness 11. Puffed with pride 12. Love pleasures rather than God 13. Religious but not godly 14. Strange men who call themselves men of God will work their way into the homes of vulnerable women who are burdened with guilt of sin and controlled by various desires to deceive them with strange doctrines. These women will follow these strange doctrines and will never understand the Truth. 15. There will be people with depraved minds and counterfeit faith. Who are Hypocrites in the Last Days? - Hypocrites in the last days publicly profess Christ but do exactly the opposite of what Christ require of them (Mathew 23:23). - Apostles Paul refers hypocrites as those who claim to be Christians and appear to be religious and do the right things yet do not have intimate personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. - They are people who embrace false doctrines, spiritual impersonation, condone worldly things and behaviours in their homes, church, environment, work and family. - Their conducts and characters are not controlled by the Power of the Holy Spirit that help set people free from sins and worldliness, selfishness and ungodly behaviours. However, we can overcome these hypocrites of the last days by moving closer to God and entrench ourselves in the Word of God to discover the Truth by ourselves. By knowing the Truth is when we shall be set free from the evils of these last days. “All Scriptures are inspired by God and is profitable or useful to (2 Timothy 3:16): - Teach us what is true. - Make us realize what is wrong in our lives. - Correct us when we are wrong - Teach us to do what is right. For us to know the Truth, we must be born again, have the Spirit of God that teaches us and let God have His Way in our lives. We must also seek God’s Kingdom and the treasures of heaven rather than of this world. Accept Jesus Christ today and you shall be saved. God bless you. Peace!
