MORNINGTIME 2584
 
But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, WHO SHOULD WALK AFTER THEIR OWN UNGODLY LUSTS. These be they WHO SEPARATE THEMSELVES, sensual, HAVING NOT THE SPIRIT. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, KEEP YOURSELVES IN THE LOVE OF GOD, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Jude 1:17-21. It's interesting that mockers will separate themselves from The Truth. That Truth is Christ, and His Word. The idea of someone separating from something, means that at some point, they were near The Truth. This doesn't mean they were once Christian, just that somewhere in the past they may have heard some sermons, and rejected the Truth of them. Close enough to "hear", but far enough away to resist The Truth and go after their own foolishness. One very prominent Truth is the story of Creation. The very prominent Lie is the theory of Evolution. A growing  Christian may believe evolution for a while, but when he is presented with the Truth of Creation, he'll deny the Lie and follow Christ and the Creation Truth to the very end. Again, these mockers make themselves out to be smarter than God, so they become a god unto themselves. Both they AND their lies will eventually fall into the ditch and be swept away into oblivion and  soon forgotten. The Christian, on the other hand, must "work" to stay in Christ. Not BY works, but by making time in their busy schedule to read of, study of, pray over, and follow Christ. Remember, not ONE  of Christ's sheep will be lost, NOT ONE. But it WILL take great effort to Obey Christ in all things in your daily Walk WITH Him. Only Christ and His Holy Spirit can take a man OUT of the sewer, clean him off, cover him with the Holy Spirit, put him BACK into the sewer, AND KEEP HIM CLEAN. That man WILL, Be Blessed.
