We have been talking about all kinds of Biblical subjects, but it would only be fair to us to discuss some of the Biblical warnings. They are for our benefit and affect our eternal life, so what do you say that we study some of them and see what they are.
2 Peter 2:1,2,3 "but there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who brought them, and and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words, for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber."
2 Peter 3:16 speaking of Paul here "as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures."
2 John 7 "For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist."
Jude 3,4 "Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were ungodly men who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ."
Right now things are happening that will try to lead us away from God's word to the words of men. We must study to show ourselves approved unto God a workman that needeth not be ashamed. We need to know what we believe so that these false teachers will not lead us astray. We need to contend earnestly for our faith. God will bless all who are faithful to Him and His word.
1 John 3:2 Beloved now we are children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is." This is a beautiful promise for God's children, we shall see Him as He is. Are you looking forward to seeing Him as He is. I am and I pray that you are. Let us heed the warnings that we have been given and believe the word of God as it is written, not as men interpret it. We will see Him when He comes to save us. Grandma Joan
