    That there shall come in the last days scoffers

    II Peter 3:3

    There have been several news items recently about the validity of the Bible account of creation, of Jesus Himself, does God exist, is there really a supreme being? There have been some articles saying Jesus was a Marxist, the rapture will not happen, Christians are insensitive to women’s rights {abortion} and to homosexuals.

    All of these things are to be expected because they are precursors of the coming of the Lord in the rapture of the Church. Peter is telling us that these false teachers and preachers will come on the scene in the last days. This kind of thing, as well as many coming forward as announcing themselves to be Christ Jesus, is not new. However, it does seem that in the recent news there have been more of these accounts than usual.

    There is no doubt that we are living in the last days. There are those who have predicted that Jesus will come before 2016…..and this could happen, but do not lose sight of the fact that Jesus could come today.

    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 just want them to know that they believe the Bible and know in their hearts that there is a God and His Son is Jesus Christ the Lord. This is commendable but futile. For the most part, these writers are just trying to get their names in the paper or on the news. What they say or do does not affect the coming of the Lord one bit. Peter told us these things were going to happen and he also told us how to react.

    “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.” II Peter 3:17-18

    Don’t let these scoffers bother you. Look for the coming of the Lord and give more time to your Bible, learning of Him who is about to appear in the clouds.
