In the Last Days...Stand Firm

Long ago, God foretold that "scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts" (2 Peter 3:1–6). The Bible states that "in the last days" men "having a form of godliness but denying its power" will actually deny that "all Scripture is given by the inspiration of God" (2 Timothy 3:1–17).

Looking to the end of the age, the Apostle Paul predicted that "the time will come when… they will have itching ears [to hear some new idea], they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables" (2 Timothy 4:1–5).

This is where we are today!

... But in the midst of it all, we can —and must— stand firm in the promises of God. ℛℒ

I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Psalm 16:8

He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved. Psalm 62:6

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 2 Thessalonians 2:15

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58 ♥
