Do You Endure Sound Doctrine?

Scripture: 2 Timothy 4 v 3

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears."

- This is a sign of the end times, when there will be a falling away from the truth concerning Jesus and believe people who appeal to them and who never challenge the sin in their lives.

- People prefer their own fleshly lusts to be pandered to and cannot endure the truth. They go looking for philosophy or a lifestyle that leads them away into darkness and uncertainty.

- I exhort you all to put away the false things you cling to and throw yourself at the merciful feet of Jesus Christ. Follow Him into eternal life and the riches of His Kingdom.  Do not be deceived and follow the crowd, but find the strait (disciplined) and narrow (moral) path that leads to life.

- Jesus walked that path before you and you need to follow in His footsteps knowing that all who live Godly lives in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But the joy of salvation and victory over the flesh is pure heaven.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, You overcame all the deception of the devil to show us how to defeat him for ourselves. Help us Lord, to learn this lesson well and apply it to every part of our lives. Amen.
