So with that comforting promise in mind, let’s consider………..
5 Keys To Surviving These Perilous Times
KEY #1: WE MUST STAND FIRM ON THE WORD OF GOD
Scripture: Matthew 7:24,25
What Jesus is telling us in these two verses is that if we are going to survive these perilous times……..if we are going to survive this awful storm…….WE MUST STAND FIRM ON THE WORD OF GOD!
You may say, “Well preacher, I believe every word of the Bible. I believe the BIBLE from cover to cover! Well my friend that is wonderful! But STANDING FIRM on the Word of God means more than just believing God’s Word is true
.it means BELIEVING IN IT ENOUGH TO BUILD YOUR
WHOLE LIFE ON IT.
Now why is that so critically important? I’ll tell you why…….
Jesus warns us in Matthew 24:24 that one of the things that will characterize these PERILOUS LAST DAYS before His coming is that we will see a great increase in the number of FALSE TEACHERS throughout the world.
The fact that there are currently over 4,200 different religions in the world right now testifies that what JESUS said is absolutely true. False teachers are everywhere. They are like a bad infestation of “cock roaches!”
You can find false teachers everywhere from pagan Hindu temples of India to the University and College classrooms of America. You can find false teachers from the Buddhist Shrines of China to some of the most popular televangelist on American TV.
Oh dear Christians, if you and I are going to survive these PERILOUS TIMES we must STAND FIRM on the WORD of GOD! Read it! Study it! Meditate on it! Believe it! And live it!
