Word for the Day
[Jesus is speaking.] Then they will deliver you into trouble, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all unbelievers because of My name. At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. (Matthew 24:9-13) (Psalm 33:12)
Pastor Spencer - What kind of picture does this give us of Christ's Church here on earth as the Last Day draws near? It most certainly is not one where Believers run the show! On the contrary, Jesus is quite clear that as Judgment Day approaches, more and more people will reject the Gospel, abandon the Kingdom of God, and become totally absorbed in rebellion against all things Godly. The world will follow its own many false messiahs. We must stay true and faithful to the pure Gospel and God's perfect Word. That is our only hope. Let others run away from trial and persecution; by God's grace we shall prevail in The End!
