“THY WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET, AND A LIGHT UNTO MY PATH” (Psalm 119:105).
Our Lord Jesus Christ, the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD warned us, saying: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (Matthew 7:15).
“Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall [SHEW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS]; insomuch that, [IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT].
Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not” (Matthew 24:23-26).
“For [NATION SHALL RISE AGAINST NATION, AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM: AND THERE SHALL BE FAMINES, AND PESTILENCES, AND EARTHQUAKES, IN DIVERS PLACES].
[ALL THESE ARE THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS]. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. [BUT HE THAT SHALL ENDURE UNTO THE END, THE SAME SHALL BE SAVED].
“This know also, that in the [LAST DAYS PERILOUS TIMES SHALL COME]. For men shall be [LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES], covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; [HAVING A FORM] of godliness, but [DENYING THE POWER] thereof: from such turn away” (2 Timothy 3:1–5).
“[THESE ARE MURMURERS, COMPLAINERS, WALKING AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS]; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
How that they told you there should be [MOCKERS IN THE LAST TIME, WHO SHOULD WALK AFTER THEIR OWN UNGODLY LUSTS].
These be they who separate themselves, sensual, [HAVING NOT THE SPIRIT].
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
[KEEP YOURSELVES IN THE LOVE OF GOD, LOOKING FOR THE MERCY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST UNTO ETERNAL LIFE]” (Jude 1:16-21).
“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another [DAILY], while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast [UNTO THE END]” (Hebrews 3:12-14).
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).
