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, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of GOD; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth. (2Ti 3:1-7)
We are to know them by their deeds, and discern their character and words which are contrary to the Scriptures, by knowing the Scriptures and our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We are to study His Word, and know the thoughts and words of them which come and speak, whether what they say is Truth, and reject all falsehood. We are to see, yes even judge, with righteous judgment, the character and behavior, especially of those in leadership who serve GOD's Church, and reject those who are not holy, walking right with GOD, and speaking His Truth in the love of the Spirit of GOD, who say one thing while doing another. Especially those who deny or subvert His great Salvation by faith through grace, and our need of repentance toward GOD and saving faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary.
We are to be filled with the Spirit, walking in the power of His love, mercy, and grace, that others might see Jesus in us, the hope of Glory. As His ambassadors, we minister to those around us who are hurting and in need. As ministers of reconciliation we are to be on mission for Him. As members of His body, and of one another, we are to love others as He first loved us, and disciple other believers in His Word that we may all grow up into Christ and be conformed into His image. As His witnesses we are to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost and dying world, and as we go, proclaiming to all we meet the Good News of forgiveness of sin through repentance and a new life in Him by faith in Christ alone, that those who believe might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
