Topic: IN TIMES LIKE THESE

By: Pastor Babangboni Femi

Anchored scriptures: Matthew 16:2-4


“He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.”

• Sad enough, even pastors, ministers, prophets who are suppose to be preaching and telling us the truth, are falling away too

WHAT TIMES ARE THESE? WHAT TIMES ARE WE?
1 Timothy 4:1-3, 2 Timothy 3:1-7, Matthew 24:3-13, Mark 10:31

===> You will not fall back, you will not fall out, the signs of these times will not carry you away, in the name of Jesus

From the scriptures, we can deduce the followings
1. These are perilous times; dangerous times, risky times, times you cannot afford to joke with your creator

2. These are times when false prophet flourishes and deceive many

3. These are times of war

4. These are times when iniquity will abound; where sin will have another name

5. These are times of fake doctrines, evil doctrines and satanic doctrines

6. These are times of evil seduction; satanic seduction
– It is a time that it is in fashion to expose the breast

• The truth is that many has allowed these times to capture us, you can’t afford to continue like these till 2016

7. These are times when adultery and fornication drives

8. These are times of wild and disobedient youths, stubborn children everywhere
===> This message will not go against you on the day of judgement in Jesus’ name

9. These are times of strange marriages; unusual marriages
* Instead of Adam marrying Eve, it is Adam marrying Steve

10. These are times of free and excess demonic influence

11. These are times when the love of money is so strong and corruption is rampant very well even in the church

12. These are times when the World influence the Church rather than the Church influencing the World

13. These are times when the Bible is pushed to the background

14. These are times when preachers preach what congregation wants to hear

15. These are times of competition among brethren

16. These are times when the love of many has waxed cold

17. These are times of strange diseases that lead to sudden death

18. These are times the true children of God will be hated

19. These are times when the first will become the last and the last will be first

20. These are times many will backslide and depart from faith

21. These are times when lies and hypocrisy will drive

22. These are times of ungrateful people/generation

23. These are times when people’s conscience will be strangled to death

24. These are times when people will hear the truth but never heed to the truth

• We just need to survive, make the last supper of the Lamb and meet our Bridegroom

HOW DO WE SUCCEED? HOW DO YOU PULL THROUGH DURING A TIME LIKE THESE?
1. You need Jesus
2. You need the Bible

• Don’t waste time taking selfies, the most beautiful selfie you can ever take is with the Bible because it is the best camera for a selfie

3. You need an anchor of faith that can withhold any tide
4. You need to get yourself occupied with God’s work
5. You need to pray more
6. You need to examine yourself daily; not weekly or monthly
7. You need to declare who you are
• The most difficult word to say is “NO” – Dr. D.K Olukoya

8. You need a true prophet
