This Also Know....Perilous Days



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.
2 Tim. 3:1-7

 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures through all generations.
The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises
 and faithful in all he does.
Psalm 145:13


Above prayer from Sermons and Prayers by Peter Marshall


These perilous days are here
Of Ignorance without fear
A world of youth blind to the Truth
And ears that do not hear

These perilous days have come
Of hearts haughty and numb
So cold to God, bold to applaud
 Evil’s appalling sum

These perilous days will pass
But oh, alas, alas
To those who think that they can wink
At death and die as grass

These perilous days are grim
Still, all who trust in Him
Can know for sure, Hope is secure
Though hope seems dark and dim

These perilous days are here
Of doubt, hate, godless fear
Still, God of grace will help us face
These days…He remains near

These perilous, perilous days
Cannot annul the praise
To Holy God from sky, sea, sod
Attuned to mercy’s gaze

Then pray, before the toll  
That severs skin and soul
We have believed and thus received
Through  grace, the Victor’s goal
