The Darkness

posted by jfletcher

There are all sorts of amazing prophecies in the Bible. Not all of them deal with antichrists and things that go bump in the night. But they do signal a season of darkness before the light dawns.

Among other places in the New Testament, the two letters that bear Peter’s name discuss “false teachers” and departures from the Christian.

Apostasy.

The apostle indicates that both false teachers and their “students” will do so willingly. In particular, 2 Peter 3 has a fascinating discussion of this, revealing to us that in the last days, there will come “scoffers” into the Church, specifically, and that they will first deny the origins accounts of Genesis, then they will, in effect, put up their hands and mockingly ask, “Where is the promise of His [Jesus] coming?”

It doesn’t help Bible prophecy students and teachers today that men like Harold Camping are such bunglers. Because if people were able to see past the Harold Campings of the world, they would see clearly that Peter’s predictions are coming to pass every single day, especially among the liberal wing of the Church—and this includes the evangelical wing of Christendom. It is open season on believers who actually think that Jesus will physically return to Jerusalem, as He told his disciples He would.

One blogger recently said that we must be mindful of believers struggling with the mocking and that we should be “preparing them for the coming post-evangelical darkness.”

That’s interesting; post-evangelical darkness. If you don’t realize that those shadows are already falling, pay attention. Pay attention to the mocking jabs from those in the liberal wing and the so-called “Emergent” crowd.

Be mindful of 2 Peter 3; the scoffers today—within the Church!—are fulfilling the very prophecy they deny.

Isn’t that amazing?
