No doubt the days are here.
People want to have their ears tickled.
Even those within the professing body of Christ.
The people like it that way.
The “leaders” like it that way.
“Pulpit-readers” will spend much time on “personal experiences”.
They spend much time on “legends”, “what might be”.
They spend minimal time in Scripture and then with only oblique references/inferences.
They go to great extremes to avoid having a real encounter with the Lord and His Word.
They do not worship…they are often distracting during times of worship.
All in the name of the Lord.
The Lord tells us about such…
2 Tim 4:3-4
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;
but wanting to have their ears tickled,
they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,
and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.
Yet, there is a remnant.
A remnant that wants the Truth of the Lord.
A remnant that yearns for the transformative power of the Word and Spirit.
A remnant that desires to be the vessel of the Kingdom that the Lord has designed us to be.
What are we to do?
2 Tim 4:2
preach the word;
be ready in season and out of season;
with great patience and instruction.
Continue to pursue the Lord.
Seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness.
Be the remnant.
Be the vessel.
