Bible Ballistics: “BBs”   #43

As I’ve said before, “saying so, don’t make it so”.  If our life doesn’t match our words we need to check out our heart and mind.  Because what we really believe will come out in our words and actions.  It grieves my heart to see so many, so influenced by the world, speaking and acting like the world rather than the God and the Word, which we claim to believe and follow.

2 Peter 3:11 says, “Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,”  (conversation meaning lifestyle, not just words)

2 Timothy 3:1, describes our times,  “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

And living in those perilous times we are!!  When speaking the truth may cost you not only ridicule, but job, family, friends and yes, even imprisonment.  We’ll stand for whatever the latest ‘buzz’ word of the day is, but are we really willing to stand for Jesus with lives of ‘holiness’ and ‘obedience’ to HIS Word?  To not only say we’re ‘Christians’, but to live like it?  Why?  Because—

2 Timothy 2:19,  “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” 

If you claim itLIVE IT!!!

And 2 Timothy 3:19, ” Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”

So?  Here’s our shot for the day—?  Live right for Jesus, and expect to pay the price in perilous times—they’re here!!!

So?  ??????  Look up!!!

Get ready.

Be ready.

Stay ready.

Because—

And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”  Luke 21:28
