It’s without doubt how we are emerging into what will be the most perilous times. Times never seen on the history of the earth. We will see specifically why they are perilous, to have faith, and to overcome. It’s either have faith in perilous times, or fall away…
The Prophecy Of Paul—Last Days Wicked “Christians”
Wickedness is not new under the sun. There has always been wicked times in the world. However, the wickedness in the world is unique now, because of the overall working of lawlessness. Fallen angels interfering with men. The global deception. And specifically, “God’s people” departing from the faith, and wicked men claiming to belong to Christ.
The Apostle Paul warned about men in the last days who would come in, claiming to be followers of Christ. Many Christians erroneously think that Paul is talking about the “unsaved” but Paul is speaking to Timothy and giving counsel on how to oversee God’s people. It says,
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men (professing Christians) will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Tim. 3:1-5)
The overall denial of the faith from the majority professing to be Christian is a huge reason for why there’s peril. This Scripture is Paul’s prophetic insight in the last days, and this is why times will be hard, “for Christians will be as these.”
Having Faith To Leave The Perilous Environment
Notice how he says, “turn away from people like this”? And how many people, churches, and “believers” who profess Christianity are as these? And indeed, we must turn away from Christians who are like these. We must have faith, and leave. Having faith is the key to walk through trials and the fires that surround them. Even in our unique wicked times, it’s the way to overcome.
At Pam Sheppard Ministries we are a place that you can run to. Every church is the reason why the times are peril, because of “men like these,” the overall apostasy of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Gospel, and their religious works of death. We are here for you, as a ministry to help you have faith in these times. To encourage you, by the grace given to us.
Overcoming Means Being Surrounded By True Believers
This is how you overcome, “to be encouraged by one another day by day” (Hebrews 3:13). It’s within each day of encouragement that sin does not deceive us and make in us a harden heart. Our ministry, is a ministry if you are trying to overcome the perilous times, remain faithful, and not be deceived.
You will not overcome the peril of the last days if you are surrounded by a bunch of “lovers of themselves, money, pleasure” and so on. How can you? “Bad company corrupts good morals.” You can not possibly think that being surround by end times Christians as Paul prophesied about and not be effected by them.
We understand, for most of us here were once in the religious system. Contact us at 888-818-1117 if you need help, counsel, and are struggling with your faith, and feeling overcome by the peril. God did not design His people to be overcome by evil, but for His people to overcome evil with good.
