There Shall Come in the Last Days Scoffers

There have been several news articles recently questioning the validity of the Bible, the Saviour and God as to their existence and truth. Some are saying that Jesus was a fake, a Marxist and many other things about His teaching. Christians are being accused of being insensitive to women and homosexuals.

All of these things are to be expected because they are all signs of the soon coming of the Lord in the rapture of the Church and preparation for seven years of tribulation. There is no doubt that we are living in the last days. There are some making predictions based on what they think is sound Bible doctrine.

When these scoffers make the news there are many who comment concerning their accusations. No doubt many of these are good Christian people who just want to set the record straight. They want them to know that there are some believers who still stick by the truth of the Word of God and the principles therein. This is commendable but futile. For the most part, these writers are just trying to get their names in the paper and in the news. They could care less about the truth, our Lord and what we believe and know. What they say or do does not affect the truth of God’s Word.

The Apostle Peter tells us that these things are going to happen and how we should react to them.

“Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.”

Don’t let the scoffers of this world hinder your looking for the soon coming of the Lord. Give more time to your Bible, your Church, your brothers and sisters and service to our Lord. Look up, Jesus is coming soon.
