2 Timothy 3:1-2 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.” The Bible tells us some of the things we can expect as we approach the end. It is a time of great stress and trouble. We can see this coming around the world. Christians are going to suffer. There will be a great loss and hardship which is already happening. But as awful as these things are, none of them should be the focus of our ministry. We must continue to proclaim the love of God and know that God and God alone is in control of all things. Isaiah 26:3 “Thou wilt keep Him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:” We are to gather all the knowledge we can about the oncoming storms, so we can prepare our hearts for whatever we will face. It all sounds frightful but all Jesus wants is for us to believe in Him who is over all these awful things and know that He is a loving Father. To know the will of God in these perilous times is to be a Christian that follows the pattern of instruction given by the Holy Spirit. What Am I To Do?

A little girl made a cup of tea for her mother. “I didn’t know you could make tea,” said mom taking a sip. “Yes, I boiled some water, added the tea leaves like you do, and then strained it into a cup. But I couldn’t find the strainer, so I used the fly swatter.” “What!” exclaimed mom, choking on her tea. “Oh, don’t worry. I didn’t use the new fly swatter. I used the old one.”
