For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to right teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever they want to hear. 2 Tim 4:3 NLT.
It is sad to say, but we are living in those days. Too many pastors and ministers seem to desire attracting crowds over hpholding righteousness. They are afraid to preach the truth with boldness, worried that they will jeopardize all they've worked hard to build. So they tell the people what they want to hear and sidestep confrontation.
The results are devastating. Sinners sit in our congregations unconvicted of sin and unaware of what righteousness is all about. Many of these confused individuals assume they are saved, when in fact they are not. At the same time, some ministers pursue the favor and rewards of man without considering the favor of God, while godly believers cry out, "Where is God?"...
What is God's answer? It is found in the word "remnant". Just as God found a remnant who trembled at His word to fill with His glory in the former rain, so shall He find a remnant of believers in these last days of the latter rain through which He will again reveal His glory. The size or number of the group is not important.
John Bevere The Fear of the Lord
Wow! Now you know why John Bevere is one of my favorite authors. I'm determined to be part of the remnant. Through Jesus we'll do exploits for His glory. What about you? What about your church?
