Perilous Times Are Here!
By David J. Stewart | April 2008 | Updated August 2020
"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." —2nd Timothy 3:1-7
People can be so cruel and coldhearted. What do you do when your parents disown you, your spouse divorces you in an ugly divorce, your children break your heart, and friends betray you? You do the only thing you can do—you turn to the Word of God. All we can do is hold the hand of our unchanging God, Jesus Christ. 2nd Timothy 3:1-7 is a wake-up-call for those who have been hurt (physically, financially, emotionally or otherwise) by others. God told us that these “perilous times” would come... when people would be lovers of their own selves.
Unbelievable Crimes in These Perilous Times
I read in the news about two 10-year old boys in Europe who kidnapped a 2-year old boy. They led him into a secluded area and beat him to death with pipes and then placed his barely alive body upon the train tracks. A train cut the child in half. Those two 10-year old boys were tried as adults and received life in prison.
In Chicago years ago it was reported in the news that two African-American teenage boys kidnapped a female Caucasian college student. She was walking to her car after an evening class at the University of Chicago. Those wicked boys drove the girl to a secluded area, gang raped her, beat her to death by repeatedly throwing a cinderblock down upon her, and then they both urinated upon her dead body. Can you honestly tell me that we are not living in dangerous times, in the “perilous times” forewarned about in 2nd Timothy 3:1-2? We are living in the Last Days.
When our nation kicked God, the Bible and prayer out of the public schools in 1963, we invited Satan into our schools. No wonder we are now paying as a nation for our wickedness!!! Is it so hard to figure out why we are getting what we deserve as a nation who have forsaken God?
Our church used to run hundreds of buses into Chicago every Sunday to reach them for Jesus Christ. I loved working in the bus-ministry. I worked in the bus-ministry for 8-years. I drove a church bus for about 4-years. I worked as a mechanic in the bus-garage for one year. I taught Sunday School for 4-years. Between the morning and evening services, the bus-workers had about an hour or two to take a break, get a bite to eat, or take a nap on the bus. On a particular Sunday, one of the buses were parked on the Southside of Chicago. One of the bus-workers, a young man, was taking a short nap on the last seat of the buss. An African-American man opened the back door of the bus, jumped onboard with an aluminum baseball-bat and nearly beat that busworker to death. His entire right-side of his faced was crushed in.
The criminal escaped and was never caught by the police. That bus-worker had to have reconstructive surgery done through his nose. Surgeons did their best to repair his broken cheek bones and help him; but his pain was horrible and he'll suffer for the rest of his life with arthritis and pain. Why would someone jump on a church bus with a baseball bat and beat a Christian worker nearly to death? He may have been high on drugs. We are living in dangerous times my friend. The good old days are gone when you could leave your doors unlocked and blindly trust others. We are living in perilous times.
I'm not saying that any victim of a crime gets what they deserve as an individual, not at all. What I am saying is that 95% of our kids grow up in a heathen school system, being taught that God doesn't exist, being taught immoral sex-indoctrination and are given condoms, being denied any type of moral teaching. Children are not taught that marriage is the right way. Children are not taught that they are sinners and need God in their life. And so they grow up to be ticking timebombs, lacking any moral compass, committing unthinkable crimes.
On October 25, 2001, Shatoya Lofton carried a razor blade inside the South Shore Mall in Bay Shore and searched for someone to slice. On that night, Lofton, 16, of Islip, hoped to gain entry into a gang, the Crips, she told a Riverhead judge yesterday. Ideally, she would come upon a rival gang member. But if not, any black person wearing red would do. She found her victim in an absolute stranger: a 17-year-old cashier at a clothing store wearing a red shirt. Lofton and her friend Khadijah Muhammad, 18, of Brentwood, trailed the girl as she headed down to the food court on her dinner break. As she returned to the store, the two girls struck - punching, kicking and knocking the cashier to the ground. Then, in front of dozens of shoppers, Lofton ran the razor blade down the right side the girl's face, opening a pencil-sized wound from temple to chin.
Yesterday, Lofton pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and received a sentence of 10 years in prison. "I don't take any pleasure from imposing this sentence," said Suffolk County Court Judge Joseph Farneti before an emotional courtroom, which included several of Lofton's relatives and friends. "But from any angle, her conduct was horrific." By pleading guilty to the 10-year sentence, Lofton, who will be formally sentenced in June, avoided facing a possible sentence of 25 years in prison, which attorneys on both sides said was a distinct possibility given the brutal nature of the crime.
"This was a violent gang initiation against a 17-year-old stranger which required 180 stitches and facial surgery," said Drew Biondo, a spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney's office. "Ask the victim if this [sentence] was enough." The victim has not been identified and was not present in the courtroom. Muhammad is also charged with first-degree assault and is expected to plead today, said Biondo. Her family could not be reached for comment. Lofton's attorney, Phil Murphy of Bay Shore, said his client was fortunate to receive the plea. "The bottom line was it wouldn't get any better than 10," he said.
Unfortunately, the righteous are suffering with the wicked, because nearly all of our nation is wicked (1st John 5:19). Hardly anyone cares about God anymore (Philippians 2:21). People are liars and false accusers, hypocrites and evil-minded. Feminism has destroyed our homes, teaching women to be intolerant of their husbands, encouraging divorce. Lawyers are cutthroat, encouraging divorce, telling spouses to STRIKE FIRST. No Sir, that is heathendom! You don't strike at all. That's your spouse! Divorce is a sin! God's love is unconditional. God doesn't love us for who we are; but rather, because of Who He is! Likewise, we ought to love our spouse unconditionally because of who WE ARE, and not because of who they are, what they do, or what they think.
I remember another news story about a woman in Chicago who was kidnapped and gang-raped by nine gang members upon the train tracks while waiting for city train in the wee hours of the morning. In another story, a man was held at knifepoint in Lincoln Park, as a group of Hispanic men gang-raped his pregnant wife just before sunrise. This is the sinful and evil world that we live in today. This is reality. You cannot live your life without looking over your shoulder. I recommend that families move out to the country, to smaller towns where crime is rare. Big cities are no place to raise families. Lot moved his family to Sodom in Genesis and it ruined his family.
I remember reading in the Chicago Sun Times about a gang of thugs who kidnapped a business owner's husband. The middle-aged couple owned their own business, and the gang demanded money as a ransom or else they'd kill the husband. The woman refused to pay the ransom, The police found the husband's head in one part of Chicago, and the rest of his body in another area. Rapes... Drive-by shootings... Gang-related crimes everywhere... Theft... it has become so dangerous in America's cities that it has become safer to live in the jungles of Africa amongst the wild animals.
I heard a shocking story in the news in Chicago, that happened in one of the suburbs. A group of three people, a man and two women, attacked a pregnant woman on the street. They literally took a knife and cut her belly open, removing the child from the mother's womb. They killed the mother. We are living in perilous times.
This is all just from Chicago. It's just as bad nationwide. America was shocked when a mother in Texas drowned all of her precious children in a bathtub. An idle or weak-mind is the Devil's workshop. If you don't have God in your mind, causing you to care, then you are capable of anything. A society that openly, legally, and shamelessly murders its children by abortion is capable of anything. It shouldn't come as a surprise to all of us.
“I wish I didn't have to say this, but you just can't trust people no more like you used to. I'm telling you what, it's unreal.”

While America is going to Hell, our churches are falling apart. The average church uses the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible, translated by numerous unrepentant homosexuals. Thank God for the inspired and preserved King James Bible. Today's churches are out of touch with reality...
“We're living in a different generation. ... They've been a whole new crowd come up in the last 15-years. And what's happened is our churches ... you listening to me? Churches have lost touch! Brother, we've lost touch! ... We're in a perilous time tonight. ... It's a dangerous time that you and I are living in.”

Amen and amen! Jesus said that the End Times would be as it was in the days of Noah, when everyone only cared about themselves. Of the total earth's population at the time of the flood, only 8-people survived. No one cared enough to listen to Noah and get on the ark. All they had to do was get onto the ark. That's a picture of the simplicity of salvation. The Lord Jesus Christ paid for our sins in full. The ark represents the Lord Jesus Christ. All we need to do is get on the ark and we'll be saved. But people today won't get on the ark. People today are receiving false bibles, false gospels, false doctrines, and false Christs. Jesus told us to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES in John 5:39, because the Bible is TRUTH (John 17:17). This lost world needs to know that there is a God. We need to tell them about the redeeming Savior, Jesus.
Sexual Filth, Provocative Clothing and Lasciviousness
Photo to right: Marylyn Monroe—a Hollywood whore who died of drug overdose
We are living in a selfish world today. America's infatuation with sexual immorality, lasciviousness and nudity is fueled by greed, lust and selfishness. The whores who are willing to strip naked (or nearly naked) to make a buck are helping to destroy America. I'm talking about Carrie Underwood, Britney Spears, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride, Paris Hilton, Dolly Parton, Hannah Montana, the Dixie Chicks, and thousands more. Every woman who has ever posed naked in a dirty magazine, such as Playboy, will give account to God for helping to destroy marriages, wreck homes, cause rapes and lead men away from God.
Pornography is no trifle matter to God. Hebrews 13:4 is clear... "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge." Jesus said in Matthew 5:28... "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." Women who strip naked in a filthy movie, or in an immoral magazine, or on the adulterous HEE HAW show, are deliberately causing tens-of-millions of men to have lustful desires that are unholy, covetous, and adulterous. I can't think of anything more malicious and selfish. Many little children are being sexually molested because of booze and pornography. Now cellphones makers are making the sin of adultery even easier...
Cell phone porn to ring up $3.3 billion
Like the Internet before it, it looks like mobile's content explosion could be set off by porn.
Adult content on mobile devices will be worth $3.3 billion by 2011, up from $1.4 billion this year, according to industry analysts Juniper Research.
Europe is the biggest spender on porn, due to both its appetite for smut and the relatively high-priced nature of adult content. The Asia-Pacific region follows in second place.
The development of the adult content market will also evolve in parallel with mobile telephony technology, Juniper predicted. Currently, most adult content is text-based. As 3G wireless, which provides more capacity for multimedia services, reaches maturity, porn will switch to video delivery, Juniper said. More than 70 percent of revenue will be derived from that medium by 2011, according to the report.
"Erotic adult entertainment is big business--sex sells! What's more, the underlying drivers mean that the demand is pretty constant," the report's authors noted.

I agree with pastor Jeremiah Wright... GOD DAMN AMERICA!!!
The Morally Reprehensible Sin of Homosexuality
There is no sin any more indicative of a societies' spiritually apostate condition than homosexuality (Romans 1:22-32). Homosexuality (called "sodomy" in the Old Testament) was a crime punishable by death in ancient Israel (Leviticus 20:13). One of the sins for which God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah was homosexuality (Genesis 19:1-10). Tragically, the Devil's children are even forcing the homosexual agenda on Christian children in public schools. This is evil. If you can't afford a private school, then you are legally required to enroll your child into a public school which is going to homosexualize them...
Judge orders 'gay' agenda taught to Christian children
Rules kids need teachings to be 'engaged and productive citizens'
By Bob Unruh | February 24, 2007

A federal judge in Massachusetts has ordered the "gay" agenda taught to Christians who attend a public school in Massachusetts, finding that they need the teachings to be "engaged and productive citizens."
U.S. District Judge Mark L. Wolf yesterday dismissed a civil rights lawsuit brought by David Parker, ordering that it is reasonable, indeed there is an obligation, for public schools to teach young children to accept and endorse homosexuality.
Wolf essentially adopted the reasoning in a brief submitted by a number of homosexual-advocacy groups, who said "the rights of religious freedom and parental control over the upbringing of children … would undermine teaching and learning…"

That ungodly judge would be hung until dead if I had any say in the matter! God doesn't have to damn America, because we are doing it to ourselves! That sicko judge is just as demented as the Golden State Killer! As a result of removing God, prayer and the Bible from the school system in the 1960's, today's generation sees no immorality in abortion, drunkenness, gambling, fornication, Rock 'N' Roll, immodest dress, or promiscuity. And now homosexuality is being taught as a legitimate way of living, and a "right" to be enforced. No Sir! Homosexuals are the filth of any society and such shameful living ought to be shunned by every Christian, Christian group and Christian organizations.
Rock 'N' Roll, Fornication and Abortion
The sin of Rock 'N' Roll brought immorality into the hearts of America's youth, drawing them away from God and moral principles. The very nature of Rock music is rebellion against God, parents and the preacher. Rock 'N' Roll is a curse which America has brought upon itself.
As a consequence of devilish Rock music coming to America in the 1950's and 1960's, the sin of fornication skyrocketed. The natural result was millions of UNWANTED pregnancies, and abortion became federal law in 1972. Everything happens for a reason.
Today, the average woman laughs at the Biblical teaching that a woman ought to dress "in modest apparel" (1st Timothy 2:9), sending a proper message of virtue and chastity by her ladylike clothing. In sharp contrast, the average woman today sees nothing even remotely wrong with wearing tight pants or a miniskirt to deliberately arouse men. It's a game to a lot of women, and they think it's sexually healthy for men. The truth is that women who wear inappropriate attire are causing men to commit adultery in their hearts (Matthew 5:28). Jesus said in Matthew 15:19... "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies." It all begins in the heart. Child molesting begins in the heart. Rape and adultery begin in the heart. Is it any wonder why Jeremiah 17:9 states: "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" When a woman wears seductive clothing, teasing a man, you don't know what is going on in his heart. You may become the victim of a rape, or cause a little child to be raped, or worse.
Not surprisingly, the same women who laugh at the Biblical idea of dressing in modest apparel, also see no harm in murdering children by abortion. We are certainly living in "perilous times" when tens-of-millions of children in America are being systematically annihilated. Woe unto America!
America's Shameful Bible Colleges And Churches
The greatest evil of all in these woeful “perilous times” is the departure from THE TRUTH is our religious institutions. From our nation's churches to our Bible colleges, and from our rescue missions to the very Bible revisions that we use, truth has been corrupted, forsaken and betrayed. At one time in America in 1944, Bob Jones University was the citadel of Christian fundamentalism, but today it is a cesspool of heresy, worldliness and a haven for yuppie neo-evangelicals. Sadly, BJU and many of their graduates have moved away from the hope of the Gospel. BJU is the biggest promoter of the Devil's corrupt English Standard Version (ESV), a bastard Bible version if ever there was one!
Neo-evangelicals simply don't care about THE TRUTH! They don't care about morality either, following the low morals of the heathen world, allowing their female students to wear halter tops, dress pants to church, and men's shorts during sporting events to compete with the world. I mean, why even have a so-called Christian college if you're going to pattern yourself after the world. I get sick that these Bible college presidents and vice-presidents get paid outrageous 6-digit salaries. I think it is very unethical, based in greed and not Christian principles. Bob Jones University affiliated colleges executives like John MacArthur, Marty Herron, Sam Horn and Steve Pettit all get paid 6-digits lucrative salaries. I think that is utterly disgusting, and worse, they all teach the Devil's damnable lie of Lordship Salvation! Spiritual crime pays well!
Perhaps BJU should seriously consider hiring Jerry Falwell's son, the now terminated president of Liberty University, who uploaded a very shameful photo of himself recently with his pant's zipper down, with his arm around holding a whorish woman with her pant's zipper down too, who is not his wife. There is no shame anymore! We are all sinners, but carelessly displaying our sins for the world to see is even worse! Falwell's son will receive a whopping $10,500,000 from Liberty University for his resignation as a severance package. That is disgusting! Now he can spend all his time on rich men's yachts with bimbo whores! This is where the love of money leads. Something is very wrong, unethical and absolutely unChristlike about paying Bible college executives $150,000 a year and more! They've turned Christianity into a damned dirty business!
Falwell's son said it was only a prop? Right, and I'm Captain Kangaroo! What a stupid thing he did, shaming his father's legacy and revealing what a phony Christian he really is! I am not judging, I am preaching against the Bible college hoax in America! Please don't waste God's money. The day you got saved, everything that you own became God's, including all your money. So when you give anything to God, you are simply letting go of what is already His. Amen! I am the biggest sinner that I know, so I am not condemning these people, God forbid. I am just showing how phony today's Bible colleges are, and that they are all about making money, and not really about serving God. They just want your money boys and girls!!!
I checked their statement of faith, and Liberty University teaches the same junk theology as Bob Jones University, requiring people to “repent of their sins” to be saved. You cannot show me one verse in the Bible that says to “turn from sins” or “repent of sins” to receive God's free gift. The Coronavirus pales in comparison to the infectious pandemic of Lordship Salvation, which has destroyed tens of thousands of churches! I am sick and tired of seeing Bob Jones' female students clothed just like the heathen world, wearing tight shorts while playing ball. Modesty means nothing anymore! The Harvest Baptist Church on Guam is just as shameful, where the staff's daughters all wear pants. Little things matter, but modesty is no little thing!
The number one threat to churches today is Bible colleges! You heard me right. The biggest deadly threat to churches today are hiring graduates from today's apostate Bible colleges, who deny the inspiration of the King James Bible. I'm warning you about Hyles-Anderson College! Since 2008 they don't teach that the King James Bible is verbally inspired anymore! I'm not kidding! You couldn't make this stuff up! Neither does Pensacola Christian College, Crown College, Faithful Baptist Bible College And Theological Seminary, Bob Jones University or Liberty University, believe that we have an inspired King James Bible today in 2020!!! WE DO HAVE AN INSPIRED KING JAMES BIBLE!!!!!!! Satan is a master deceiver, and he will always try to sneak fake Bibles, a false gospel, and false prophets into a local, Bible-believing, soulwinning, New Testament church.
Today's shallow Bible colleges are public enemy number one, whose incompetent graduates (in almost every case) preach the damnable heresy of Lordship Salvation. They teach that you must “turn from your sins” to be saved. These ungodly pastors say that people who are still living in sin never repented, so they are not really saved. Liar, liar, pants on fire!!! The life that a believer chooses to live has absolutely NOTHING to do with the free gift of eternal life. If a professed Christian is still living in open sin, then they are no different than the Christian who hides his sins better! Don't judge others because they sin differently than you do! Please understand that I am not condemning anyone, I am simply preaching against the disgusting apostate condition of Bible colleges in America today! All we can do is try to live above reproach with Christ's strength (Galatians 2:20), but even the best Christians struggle with sin (Romans 7:14-25).
I have read umpteen comments on the internet, from malicious ungodly people who calls Bible-preachers “nuts.” In particular, they've attacked Pastor Steven Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. Prey tell me, how is Pastor Anderson a “nut” for upholding the Bible's truth that homosexuals are worthy of the death penalty by the government? It is ungodly Americans who have lost their minds, not Bible-preaching men of God! As recently as 1962, homosexuality was a punishable crime in all 50 states. It is amazingly disturbing how gullible, foolish and quickly perverted people's minds can become when the newsmedia brainwashes them, calling evil good and good evil!
Please don't allow ungodly people to rob you of your walk with God, and your joy in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are on the winning side in Jesus Christ (John 16:22). Sometimes the heathen world will adversely affect us, but we must consider the “perilous times” in which we live. These are insane times because of sin! Should it be surprising that people are so malicious, mean and heartless—when they are willing to murder their own children by abortion? Not at all. Should it be surprising that so many people today are angry, frustrated and confused—when they are involved in dirty images, gambling, substance abuse, public nudity, illegal drugs and immorality? Sin always undermines any nation! We are living in “perilous times,” because we are living in sinful times when men have forsaken the God of the Holy Bible.
Ye Must Be Born Again!| You Need HIS Righteousness!
