Day 3 2 Timothy 3 2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. 10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Every form of evil is tolerated in the world today. People are afraid to offend anyone, so everything a person is or does is acceptable and anyone who comes against any of those evils is persecuted because of their intolerance. Paul told Timothy what people would become and we see those traits in the world today. He also told Timothy those traits have been around since Moses’ day, and even before that, as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of sodomy. As Christians, it’s hard to keep quiet about what we know to be true because of the intolerance of the world today. Yet, every time a Christian talks about the evils of the world, they are persecuted or killed for their beliefs. Satan has so blinded the eyes and minds of people that everything is tolerated and nothing is considered evil. Yet God will judge those who practice evil. It isn’t for Christians to judge those people, but to love them as Jesus told us we are to love all people and pray for them that they would know the truth and their blind eyes would be open. Let’s pray: Father, let me remember You are the Judge of mankind, not me. Help me love and pray for people who practice evil ways so their eyes would be opened to the truth. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen. Copyright © 20 May 2019 by Valerie Routhieaux Image courtesy of Pixabay

What has been written has all been fulfilled or happening in the last days.

Not completely fulfilled. We are in the latter days with the signs seen daily. Have a blessed day.

It is what is happening today, people don't respect God and people, they don't care of anyone or anything except for themselves, I am happy when I see good people doing something good.
