Hard Truth

 17  Also, accept the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, that is, God’s word,

Section Title

2 Timothy 3:16

16  All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness,

Jehovah's judgement on nations

Ezekiel 38:14-23 14  “Therefore prophesy, O son of man, and you must say to Gog,(Coaliton of nations) ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: “Will it not be in that day when my people Israel(true christians) are dwelling in security that you will know [it]? 15  And you will certainly come from your place, from the remotest parts of the north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses(tanks/military vehicles), a great congregation, even a numerous military force(troops). 16  And you will be bound to come up against my people Israel(true christians), like clouds to cover the land. In the final part of the days it will occur, and I shall certainly bring you against my land, for the purpose that the nations may know me when I sanctify myself in you before their eyes, O Gog.(Coaliton of nations)”

17  “This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said, ‘Are you the same one of whom I spoke in the former days by the hand of my servants the prophets of Israel, who were prophesying in those days—years—as to bringing you in upon them?’

18  “‘And it must occur in that day, in the day when Gog(Coaliton of nations) comes in upon the soil of Israel(true christians),’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah, ‘that my rage will come up into my nose. 19  And in my anger, in the fire of my fury, I shall have to speak. Surely in that day a great quaking will occur in the soil of Israel(true christians) 20  And because of me the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the wild beasts of the field and all the creeping things that are creeping on the ground and all mankind that are upon the surface of the ground will be bound to shiver, and the mountains will actually be thrown down and the steep ways will have to fall, and to the earth even every wall will fall.

 

21  “‘And I will call forth against him(Coaliton of nations) throughout all my mountainous region a sword,’ is the utterance of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ‘Against his own brother the sword of each one will come to be. 22  And I will bring myself into judgment with him(Coaliton of nations), with pestilence and with bloodshed; and a flooding downpour and hailstones, fire and sulphur I shall rain down upon him(Coaliton of nations) and upon his bands and upon the many peoples that will be with him.

 23  And I shall certainly magnify myself and sanctify myself and make myself known before the eyes of many nations; and they will have to know that I am Jehovah.’

Psalms 110:5-6

 5  Jehovah will be at your right hand; He will crush kings on the day of his anger. 6  He will execute judgment against the nations; He will fill the land with dead bodies. He will crush the leader of a vast land.

Daniel 2:44

44  “In the final days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever.

Carved Images crosses/amulets/statues wrong

Romans 1:21-25  21  because, although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God nor did they thank him, but they became empty-headed in their reasonings and their unintelligent heart became darkened. 22  Although asserting they were wise, they became foolish 23  and turned the glory of the incorruptible God into something like the image of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed creatures and creeping things.

Exodus 20:3-5

You must not have any other gods against my face.  “You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth.  You must not bow down to them nor be induced to serve them, because I Jehovah your God am a God exacting exclusive devotion, bringing punishment for the error of fathers upon sons, upon the third generation and upon the fourth generation, in the case of those who hate me;

Gay/ homosexuality wrong

Romans 1:24-27   24  Therefore God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, gave them up to uncleanness, that their bodies might be dishonored among them, 25  even those who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and venerated and rendered sacred service to the creation rather than the One who created, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26  That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature27  and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error.

 

Romans 6:9

 Or do you not know that unrighteous people will not inherit God’s Kingdom? Do not be misled. Those who are sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, men who submit to homosexual acts, men who practice homosexuality, 10  thieves, greedy people, drunkards, revilers, and extortioners will not inherit God’s Kingdom.

Leviticus 18:22

22  “‘You must not lie down with a male in the same way that you lie down with a woman. It is a detestable act.

Colossians 3:5

 Deaden, therefore, your body members that are on the earth as respects sexual immorality, uncleanness, uncontrolled sexual passion, hurtful desire, and greediness, which is idolatry.

People ignoring warning in last days

Luke 17;26-30

26  Moreover, just as it occurred in the days of Noah, so it will be in the days of the Son of man 27  they were eating, they were drinking, men were marrying, women were being given in marriage until that day when Noah entered into the ark, and the Flood came and destroyed them all. 28  Likewise, just as it occurred in the days of Lot they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building. 29  But on the day that Lot went out of Sodʹom, it rained fire and sulfur from heaven and destroyed them all. 30  It will be the same on that day when the Son of man is revealed.

1Peter 3:3-7

3  First of all know this, that in the last days ridiculers will come with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires 4  and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep in death, all things are continuing exactly as they were from creation’s beginning.”5  For they deliberately ignore this fact, that long ago there were heavens and an earth standing firmly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6  and that by those means the world of that time suffered destruction when it was flooded with water. 7  But by the same word the heavens and the earth that now exist are reserved for fire and are being kept until the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly people.

God not responsible for bad things

Ecclesiastes 9:11-12   11 I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all. 12 For man does not know his time. Just as fish are caught in an evil net and birds are caught in a trap, so the sons of men are ensnared in a time of disaster, when it suddenly overtakes them.

James 1:13    13 When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone

Authorities in place by God and in subjection to God

Romans 13:1   Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God: the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God

The antichrist is not merely one individual person or entity

the Bible says that there are “many antichrists.” Rather, the term “antichrist,” which comes from a Greek word meaning “against (or instead of) Christ,”

Signs of the last days

Luke 21:7-11   7  Then they questioned him, saying: “Teacher, when will these things actually be, and what will be the sign when these things are to occur?” 8  He said: “Look out that you are not misled, for many will come on the basis of my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The due time is near.’ Do not go after them. 9  Furthermore, when you hear of wars and disturbances,* do not be terrified. For these things must take place first, but the end will not occur immediately.”10  Then he said to them: Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11  There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another food shortages and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs.

2Timothy 3:1-5

But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3  having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4  betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5  having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

Keep preaching despite persecution

Acts 4: 18-20

18 With that they called them and ordered them not to say anything at all or to teach on the basis of the name of Jesus. 19 But in reply Peter and John said to them: “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, judge for yourselves. 20 But as for us, we cannot stop speaking about the things we have seen and heard.”

Acts 5:40-42    

40 At this they took his advice, and they summoned the apostles, flogged them, and ordered them to stop speaking on the basis of Jesus’ name, and let them go.

41 So they went out from before the Sanʹhe·drin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy to be dishonored in behalf of his name. 42 And every day in the temple and from house to house they continued without letup teaching and declaring the good news about the Christ, Jesus.

Acts 5:29   29 In answer Peter and the other apostles said: “We must obey God as ruler rather than men

1 Peter 3:11-17

11 Let him turn away from what is bad and do what is good; let him seek peace and pursue it. 12 For the eyes of Jehovah are on the righteous, and his ears listen to their supplication, but the face of Jehovah is against those doing bad things.”

13 Indeed, who will harm you if you become zealous for what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are happy. However, do not fear what they fear, nor be disturbed. 15 But sanctify the Christ as Lord in your hearts, always ready to make a defense before everyone who demands of you a reason for the hope you have, but doing so with a mild temper and deep respect.

16 Maintain a good conscience, so that in whatever way you are spoken against, those who speak against you may be put to shame because of your good conduct as followers of Christ. 17 For it is better to suffer because you are doing good, if it is God’s will to allow it, than because you are doing evil.
