But Know This

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!" - 2 Tim. 3:1-5

 

Did you catch that? "But KNOW this". Notice that he isn't telling us that it MAY be this way but, rather we are to KNOW that it WILL be this way. He isn't telling us that it MIGHT be this way but, rather he is telling us that it WILL be this way. There is no doubt, no question, no hesitation and no guess about it. Timothy tells us that it WILL be this way. Ever watch the news reports? Read the paper? Listen to the news on the radio? Read magazines based on world events? They ALL have stories about terrible events that are actually happening in our world TODAY, RIGHT NOW and are VERY current.

 

When you think of "perilous times" what goes through your mind? ISIS? Law Enforcement officers assassinated? Arson? Beatings? Rapes? E-mail erasers? Embassy attacks? Borders over-run? Assaults? Burglaries? Robberies? Gangs? Drugs? Murders? Children being abused or murdered? It's all happening today and it's all up for display on the news. 

 

How about the "selfie craze"? "Men will be lovers of themselves"...

 

How about the phrase; "He with the most toys wins"? "lovers of money"...

 

How about the popularity of social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and many others? "boasters"...

 

How about the popularity of "self-help" books? Self-help "religions" like Dyanetics? Where the focus is on personal self? "proud"...

 

Have you read some of the comments on sites like this one? "blasphemers"...

 

How many television shows and movies are there where parents are portrayed as "stupid", "preoccupied" or "incompetant". "disobient to parents"...

 

There is an entitlement mentality which the Liberals have fueled. "unthankful"...

 

There is a passion for doing what is PC or what is popular. "unholy"... If you look up the definition of the word holy you will see that it means "set aside or set apart", exactly the opposite of PC or what is popular.

 

If you look at many of the comments around the web you will see that there are those whose comments are full of vulgarity, nastiness, violence, threats and hatefulness. "unloving"...

 

Holding a grudge is human, right? It may be what human beings do but, it's not what God tells us to do. "unforgiving"...

 

How many times have you seen people lash out at someone with all sorts of verbal comments which were untrue, unproven and totally from emotion? "slanderers"...

 

Liberals would love for you to believe that Conservatives are against Homosexuals personally but, are they against the person or against the lifestyle? Those in the "gay community" would like everyone to believe that they cannot help themselves, that they were "born this way" and that they are unable to control who they "love". "without self-control"...

 

Once again, if you watch the news you will see plenty of brutality. "brutal"...

 

I could go on but, will stop there. If you look around there are many instances where the scripture is literally being proven correct right before our eyes. While there are some in our society who choose to bury their head in the sand with their tin foil hat on. They can claim that it's not happening but, one only needs to see to realize that they are wrong. Just as there were people in both Sodom and Gomorrah (see Genesis 19:23 - 29) who choose to bury their head and claim that everything was fine.

    End days are here wil and it is getting worse.
    People has to see how things are going in the last eight years.
    Is it too late ?
    I believe there’s still hope out there. The Demos as usual will make sure Sodom and Gomorrah continues at any means necessary.

      The Demos are banking on the calamities to promote their agenda. The Demos are banking on calamities to pass more taxation so that they can steal money from the unsuspecting masses. The Demos are promoting “climate change” and “global warming” so that they can pass additional taxes, regulations and put MORE people out of work.

        The debates are around the corner. President-elect Trump is going to take her and exposed what you’ve posted above as her “hidden” platform.
        She has to know this type of foolishness isn’t going to hold water…it’s been proven by this dude.
        If she uses any type of reasoning she’ll be a no show…or arrived drunk and fall out.
        She better get a nose job…it’s too long.

          The problem as I see it is that there are Liberals who couldn’t care less about America, families, children nor people who are unemployed. Narcissism is rampant in the Liberal world.

            Chicago is a city crying out for help. The liberals are not listening. More US cities may follow suit(example Philly). The American public should see this. It’s been proven under this dude’s regime nothing has been done…yet he was voted in for a second term.
            How many more lives will be snuffed out before we realize voting Demo is the wrong and murderous way to go ?
            I dare anyone with a brain and walking upright vote Demo.

              That’s exactly the problem. Liberal Democrats think that they are intelligent and will believe it because that’s what the DNC tells them.

    I find it interesting still being blocked from creating new posts,responding to the “Conversation” link and “Topics”. However I still have access by pulling down my “History” tab to respond. I was told by a few outside sources a major attempt to shut me up and out.
    There’s a big problem with this country…it’s the liberal Demos out of control.
    On Monday of this week I believe the first debate will be underway. This will decide who’s headed to Washington.
    I will never give up support as I recommend our voters to vote straight Republican. Sure we have been hearing folks plan not to vote but they will.
    If they don’t want one or the other holding office they will vote in record numbers.
    Trump and other Republicans will prevail and livelonger knows it. You can tell by his nervously constructed posts containing cheap and unnecessary shots.
    I said enough…for now.

      I really don’t know. What I DO know is that it is the “tolerant, open-minded and Liberal” Democrats who are tearing up Donald Trump signs so it wouldn’t surprise me.

    Donald Trump did a fantastic job tonight(Monday). He was clear cut and he knows precisely what this country is up against and what needs to be done in making our country great.
    This queen wannabe fell apart as soon as Lester Holt began questioning.
    Just in those two hours I believe America has already made up its mind in favor of President-elect Trump. We can look at the upcoming debates and watch Hillary entertain us.
    wil…turn her over she’s done.

      I’ve seen many more signs for Donald Trump than Jihadi Hillary however, I won’t bet my lunch money on Donald Trump being elected. The Liberal Democrats are too good at lying, covering-up, propaganda and plausible deniability for me to ever assume that truth will win over lies and innuendo.

        I’m betting my house Donald Trump will be elected. I have no uncertainties.
        The Demos feed on concerns that Mr. Trump will not succeed and I understand were you are coming from.The Demos like to build reservations when it’s actually fear. I called it cheap propagandized rhetoric.

          Well I hope you keep your house and I hope that Donald Trump does win the election. There is no question in my mind that if Hillary is elected, a war WILL break out, the U.S. WILL be attacked and the good Democrats have decimated the military so as in WWII, we won’t be prepared and many good Americans will die as a result.
