Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/28/16

This week’s scripture is from 2 Timothy:

Jesus Christ 3“For the time is coming when people will not put up with sound doctrine…”  (2 Tim. 4:3a)

If we but look around at the state of the Church, we can see that this time has come upon us. The great apostasy, the falling away, is here, for there are those who no longer believe the truth of the Word, but have turned away from the Word of God to listen to those who teach falsehood and lead the people astray. The people run here and there seeking to fill their itching ears with what they want to hear, so they may believe what they want to believe.

Let us not follow after them but stand true to the Word of God, and believe what the Word says, trusting that the One who gave the Word is true to His Word. Let us always remember that the Lord does not change and He does not change His Word to suit the fashion of the day, for His Word is eternal because its truth is eternal. So let us stand on the Rock of our faith and be not swayed.

May the Lord bless you with resolve and strength to stand upon His Word.
