Now more than ever

Now more than ever before, as we come to the end of this age as we know it, we need to be careful of who we align ourselves to and must discern by the spirit, that which is of God.

Matt 7:15  Jesus said, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. The sermon then suggests that their true nature will be revealed by their actions (by their fruits shall ye know them, verse 16).

And Paul wrote to Timothy in 2 Tim 3:1-10

The Dangers of the Last DaysYou should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like thatThey are the kind who work their way into people’s homes and win the confidence of  vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires. (Such women are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth.) These teachers oppose the truth just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses. They have depraved minds and a counterfeit faith.  But they won’t get away with this for long. Someday everyone will recognize what fools they are, just as with Jannes and Jambres.

Paul’s Charge to Timothy

But you, Timothy, certainly know what I teach, and how I live, and what my purpose in life is. You know my faith, my patience, my love, and my endurance. Timothy, guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge
