5 ¶ Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
There are people out in the Christian community who desire to be teachers; some call themselves by names and titles taken from Scripture. They distort the Scriptures to support what they claim and stand aside to watch it fulfilled, whether or not it means or is applicable to the situation at hand matters little to these people, they remained fixated in their own world of corrupt thought and interpretation of the Holy Word.
The Word and Law of the Creator is good when used lawfully, yet it was not made, as the above scripture indicates, for the righteous but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, the list above goes on and describes various forms of wickedness it can be applied to yet those who pervert the Word of GOD use it to support their own belief system.
One example of this would seem to be focused on the so-called Endtime Scenario. The scripture does indeed mention the end of days and there are hundreds of scripture which point to that day, yet in our day it has become an obsession for millions it would seem.
When the primary purpose of the description of the end time events as described in the Bible is not only to identify the Holiness of the Creator but also to warn the waywardness of mankind that there needs to be a change done in their heart. That the need of repentance is real and genuine in every generation, not only in the current and endtime generations but throughout history the Love of GOD has never failed, it calls mankind to repent and to turn from wickedness.
Yah has said through HIS Spirit in the following Scripture;
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Ezekiel 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
So you see, both in the New and the Old Testaments we see that the Creator does not find any pleasure in the death of the wicked but that they should repent and turn from their wickedness and evil.
Our lives are not judged by our works, it is judged whether or not we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior.
Those who desire to be teachers yet understand not that which they teach are like clouds without water, constantly blown about by every wind of doctrine that may come their way, they are quick to pick up a news story or hear of something happening to another and they bang their drums and blow their trumpets and declare their version of the story claiming everyone else is wrong.
They are more interested in making a profit by selling their own books and lectures, their own self help guides sermonette, yet ignoring the desperate need of a lost world, that is to bring the Gospel to the lost in this world because our GOD does not want the wicked to die in their sins, HE wants and desires them to know HIS Son who came to die for mankind. Our loving Father in the Heavens is not concerned with a writers books or lectures, HE cares little for their touring dates or public displays of faith and super-mega churches which only give a sense of fellowship. Our GOD looks at the heart of man, HE and HE alone knows the end from the beginning. Our GOD does not desire sacrifice but instead HE desires mercy to be shown to the poor and to others.
Hosea 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
Matthew 9:13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Matthew 12:7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
Those who desire to be teachers forget that first they are to show mercy, to learn mercy, sacrifice is the least of these two attributes which our Creator and HIS Son desire to be shown to our fellow man.
Are we to be concerned with the end of days?
Yes within its perspective, that being the return of our Savior. We are told to watch for the signs of His coming, to be alert and to warn others that there is a limited amount of time, that salvation is for today not tomorrow. Only Yah the Creator knows the end from the beginning, only HE knows when your number is going to be called. We need to press this issue to the lost and sinners in the wold world, the field is ripe and the seeds need to continually be planted and watered, and rewatered, we are never to give up hope that a person can come to the saving knowledge of Christ but we are told to move on when there is an open and public rejection of the Gospel, to pray that those rejecting him will come to the saving knowledge of our Christ.
