Perilous Times Have Come to America

Perilous Times Have Come to America

“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)

Many have resisted the truth in America. They mock and slander those who teach it. Their minds are corrupt and they’re reprobate (a person abandoned to sin) concerning the faith BUT (I love the but!) they shall proceed not further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men. We have no cause to fear, women!

How are we to live in these perilous times? “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned…” (2 Timothy 3:14). Be in the Word consistently. Cling to His promises in it. Live godly lives daily in obedience to the Lord. Remind yourself that the JOY of the Lord is your strength. Your times are in His hands. He will never leave nor forsake you. Love all those around you and pray for them. Everyone needs Jesus. They need the Gospel.

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
1 Timothy 2:4

    1. I don’t live in America so don’t really know how moral it is or isn’t, but this is all foretold in the Bible. The way I understand it, morals are going to keep declining further and further no matter what people do to try to improve things.

  1. I 100% Believe that without Christ in our lives, we can’t get through these troubled times. Oh some say they don’t need or believe in the Lord but they are lacking the true peace that comes with having Christ. Thank you for posting this Lori. Have a blessed 4th of July.

  2. Matthew Henry says in his commentary (I am paraphrasing): Those who keep themselves pure in times of common corruption, God will keep safe in times of common calamity.

    The common calamity is here, and I’m afraid it will get worse. Our duty is to guard our hearts and our children’s hearts by not allowing the common corruption that rules the day also to rule in our homes.

    Thank you for your blog. I have been greatly encouraged by it. May the Lord continue to grow and bless your ministry. ❤️

  3. Sadly, this is very true. You see this time and again, often in the media. Prominent people, including actors, muscians, and high ranking politicians are all guilty of this. People who are loved and trusted. We are certainly being duped by them.
