“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the Truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.” 2 Timothy 3:1-8
The corruption of the Endtime Church is among us. Their form of godliness deceives many a silly women. Sorry ladies but it was Eve who was deceived in the garden by her diverse lusts, not Adam (1 Timothy 2:14). We are emotional beings and are too often led astray by our ‘feeling’s of which false teachers prey on.
This form of godliness denies the Cross of Christ Jesus for victory over sin’s dominion, through which the Holy Spirit operates, and functions in vain philosophies which are taught as ‘biblical doctrine’…from such turn away.
The Holy Spirit does not operate outside the parameters of faith in the Cross of Christ. Looking unto Jesus, Who HE is and what HE has done for whosoever believes sin’s power is utterly defeated on Calvary’s Cross, the Holy Spirit removes that which is not pleasing unto God.
The Holy Spirit superintends the work of God in our heart. He gives us the desires of our heart and if our desires don’t line up with God’s Word, we recognize the Holy Spirit did not give it to us and ask the Lord for help to overcome such evil desires. These are diverse lusts that corrupt our hearts. We cannot overcome them on our own accord but we can submit unto God, resist the devil and he will flee. Until we are submitted unto God’s plan for victory over sin, Jesus Christ and Him crucified, we cannot resist the devil (James 4:7). We cannot follow Jesus until self is denied (Luke 9:23).
Holiness and Righteousness expels evil, it does not ‘corrupt’ evil. However, evil corrupts Holiness and Righteousness. The Endtime Church has been corrupted. It is apostate and cannot be rehabilitated. Sadly it resists the Truth and refuses to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying. Seeing they see not. Hearing they hear not and neither do they understand.
“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2 Timothy 3:13
The seducers will wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. Some who claim they believe the Bible deny the condition of the modern church. Even worse, they have denied the Truth of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for victorious Christian living and have been seduced by lying signs and wonders.
If we claim to believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, we must also believe the Endtime Church has been corrupted. The gospel of which they preach and the Jesus of which they lift is another and not the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. They did not allow His Holiness and Righteousness to expel the evil in their hearts and have compromised with the devil for sin’s dominion…from such turn away. Come out from among them and be ye separate.
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
