NOW PLAYING:

Something wicked this way cometh (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Dennis Kreiss, February 25, 2017
Part of the The Coming Spiritual Earthquake series, preached for Growing Together Radio

You never know what you’re going to come home to. You might meet up with a hungry bear or a coiled rattler, poised to strike. But there are worse things lurking in the shadows, ready to creep up on us. Around the corner, down by the house, over the hill, a premonition of prophetic danger awaits. America is facing its greatest spiritual crisis in history. The Church has been persecuted in every age and in most every country since it’s inception. The time may come when the church will be under savage assault. Something wicked this way comes.

Perilous Times Will Come - 2 Timothy 3:1-5

The general nature of the last days is that they will be____________

1. Love / people will love themselves and money

2. Communication / will be contemptuous and abusive

3. Values / the “un” generation will be without virtue

4. Actions / people will be slanderous and dangerous

5. Attitudes / will be despicable and haughty

6. God / ____________ will be their God

___________ people who display perilous personalities

Scoffers Will Come - 2 Peter 3:3-14

Scoffers enjoy making a mockery of our faith

Peter responds to his skeptics

In the future it will be destroyed by the __________________

We respond to skepticism by living as we ought to live

The Time Will Come - 2 Timothy 4:1-5

The ___________________ will one day tire of the message

We won’t want to hear the “Thou Shalt Not’s” of Scripture

Savage Wolves Will Come - Acts 20:28-30

Some teachers will be savage wolves

We are looking to raise up godly men and women who are prepared to stand against the wickedness of the latter days. By God’s grace, by whatever means you can, find a way to free yourself up to get prepared. Drop those extra-curricular activities and learn the Bible. Dump those weekend getaways and get trained up to be a man or woman of God. Whatever it takes, you do it before that day takes you by surprise and you are unprepared for it.
