What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
Traits that accompany the perilous times of these last days include rampant blaspheme, disobedience to parents, and the unholy (2Tim.3:1-2). Blaspheming is “impious irreverence”, “speaking reproachfully of Jehovah God.” He said, “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain” (Ex.20:7) That is already rampant, but calling the Almighty, Holy, Creator of the world, “The man upstairs,” is blasphemous, as is slanderous use of initials OMG. God said to King David, tangled in sin, “by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme” (2Sam.12:14); and the Apostle Paul exhorts, “give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.” My lacking Christlike testimony, can produce blasphemers.
Are young people disobedient to parents today? Irreverently! Thanks to Dr. Benjamin Spock (1903-1998). And irreverently, thanks to John Dewey (1859-1952), student destroying disciple of Karl Marx, 70% of college students prefer socialism to democracy, 50% prefer communism to capitalism. Rampant Pro-Palestinian, Anti-Israel riots, deem America's course quite irreversible.
To be holy is to be with no impurity … none. God is Holy. The Holy Bible is labeled that on purpose. God says, “Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God” again, “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” (Lev.20:7, 1Pet.1:15-16). Society is rampantly unholy, as are many calling themselves “Christian.”
These things are rampant in the end times, there are more listed, twenty total! Let them not be once named among you as becometh saints. The pre-millennial, pre-tribulation, rapture of the church, will be post perilous times. Prepare to stand.
