Good Morning! Today’s devotional meditation is taken from 1 Timothy 4:1 which says,
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed too seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (2) Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.“
It is sad to say that in these last and evil days, there are so many who have abandoned the bedrock of the truth of the Scriptures. The Lord is warning us that the increase of madness coming out of some pulpits and from those who do not rightly divide the Word of truth, and that have their own agenda, will distort Scripture because they are being deceived by Satan and his minions. They will introduce error that may sound like it is right, but stands in total opposition to the sound doctrine.
It is absolutely necessary that we make sure that we know the truth that is rightly divided in order to refute the damnable distortions that will cause some to be deceived and eternally lost. I make the appeal to those who find it necessary to neglect going to Bible Study (Hebrews 10:24-25). Do not be fooled into thinking that you cannot be deceived by the enemy of your soul. Make the sacrifice to be present when the Scriptures are being taught.
Blessings to you in Christ!
