“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
For the time will come when THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And THEY SHALL TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Tim 4:2-4).
“Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, SO DO THESE ALSO RESIST THE TRUTH: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith” (2 Tim 3:8).
IT HAD HAPPENED BEFORE
“This is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits” (Isaiah 30:9,10).
HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF
Today, we can CLAIM the good promises from the Old Testament, but reject the instructions of righteousness of the Old Testament. Yet Jesus’ sacrifice only abolished ceremonial laws of Old Testament, but His grace upholds and enables us fulfill the moral laws of it, as we believe. Jesus says, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil” (Matt 5:17).
We select the convenient TRUTHS to obey in the Scriptures and reject the not-so-convenient ones. Yet, “All scripture (Old and New Testaments) is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the (wo)man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
(2 Tim 3:16,17).
