Who Has Eyes to See and Ears to Hear
How could anyone be so blind and so deaf to all of the GODless
attacks that are going on all around us in these tumultuous times?
An almost 2000 year old book has given us quite an
accurate picture of life as we know it today.
It has hit the nail squarely on the head.
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come."
I would say they are here now, wouldn't you agree?
Can you think of more perilous times than we have now, what with so many nations having the bomb that is able to destroy all mankind?
And that is only one aspect. There are so many other perils facing all of us today, and they are coming from every direction at once.
"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,"
How many of the examples listed above can be applied to what you have seen or heard lately?
"Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,"
Without a doubt, all of the above are happening this very day.
"Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;"
Just look at some of the people in high places today and see how they fit perfectly with 2Timothy 3:4.
"Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."
Isn't it true that we are witness to all of this today?
"For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,"
Isn't it true that we see and hear all of this today?
"Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."
Truer words were never spoken.
Back to 2Timothy 3:1, are we in perilous times today?
It appears that we surely are.
"Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say:
Behold this is new: for it hath already gone before in the ages that were before us."
The dire things listed in 2Timothy 3:1-7, were happening long before 2Timothy was written by Saint Paul in about 67 A.D..
There is no doubt that they have been happening in every century ever since.
However, who can show that they were all happening at the same time in every century as they are happening today?
"As it is written, God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, down to this very day."
