The world has itching ears

2 Timothy 4:1-4
“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing, and his kingdom: Preach the word, be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

As Christians’, we are commanded to

  1. Preach the gospel without ceasing.
  2. Reprove false doctrine and teaching.
  3. Exhort, edify and build-up the brethren.

We are to be busy going about the Lords’ business – strengthening the church and preaching the gospel to the world. I for one, could be doing a lot more in these areas. How about you? The time has always been, and is now being fulfilled to the maximum, whereby the world (and often the church), refuse to listen to the sound doctrine of Jesus. Scientists tell us the physical universe was formed by random chance, and life arose on the planet because of evolution – both lies. Atheists demand obedience to their mantra, “God does not exist, religion is a fairytale”. Another lie,but one you get away from God, evil naturally seeps in to pollute the void. All atheists are liars according to God, and most scientists know nothing. As we approach the end of days, all manner of evil and uncleanness will increase in abundance. Rather than listen to the one true God, our world seeks after the “expert opinion”, not caring for what God has to say. How about you, will you listen to His word today? Are you going to continue believing the lies of the world, or embrace the glorious light and truth of Jesus Christ?

God bless,
