Perilous Times Protection
& Knowledge Scriptures
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge.
2 Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Luke 10:16 He who hears you hears Me, he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.
Perilous times are upon us just as the scriptures tell us in 2 Timothy 3.
Perilous Times and Perilous Men
2 Timothy 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! (This is most of the church today because they don't see any power).
Try to read the following two scriptures everyday out loud and these words will help you to acknowledge the protection that God has already provided to us. It’s very important that you know and believe these scriptures and all of the Word of God.
Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God
Psalm 91:1-16 (all) 1 He
who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of
the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My
God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the
fowler And from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His
feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall
be your shield and buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by
night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of
the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the
destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your
side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come
near you. 8 Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of
the wicked. 9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most
High, your dwelling place, 10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any
plague come near your dwelling; 11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways. 12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone. 13 You shall tread upon the lion and
the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. 14
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. 15 He
shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in
trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
A Perpetual Covenant of Peace
Isaiah 54:1-17 (all) 1 “Sing, O barren, You who
have not borne! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, You who have
not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate Than
the children of the married woman,” says the Lord. 2 “Enlarge the place of your
tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen
your cords, And strengthen your stakes. 3 For you shall expand to the right and
to the left, And your descendants will inherit the nations, And make the
desolate cities inhabited. 4 “Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed;
Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the
shame of your youth, And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood
anymore. 5 For your Maker is your husband, The Lord of hosts is
His name; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the
whole earth. 6 For the Lord has called you Like a woman forsaken and grieved in
spirit, Like a youthful wife when you were refused,” Says your God. 7 “For a mere moment
I have forsaken you, But with great mercies I will gather you. 8 With a little
wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; But with everlasting kindness I will
have mercy on you,” Says the Lord, your Redeemer. 9 “For this is like
the waters of Noah to Me; For as I have sworn That the waters of Noah would no
longer cover the earth, So have I sworn That I would not be angry with you, nor
rebuke you. 10 For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed, But My
kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,” Says the Lord, who has mercy on you. 11 “O you afflicted one, Tossed with tempest,
and not comforted, Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, And lay your foundations with sapphires. 12 I will make your pinnacles of
rubies, Your gates of crystal, And all your walls of precious stones. 13 All your
children shall be taught by the Lord, And great shall be the
peace of your children. 14 In righteousness you shall be established; You shall
be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; And from terror, for it shall
not come near you. 15 Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because
of Me. Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake. 16 “Behold, I
have created the blacksmith Who blows the coals in the fire, Who brings forth
an instrument for his work; And I have created the spoiler to destroy. 17 No
weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises
against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the
servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.
Tribulation-The Spiritual Battle
Read what Jesus teaches us in (John 16:33)These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”Jesus said we would have tribulation. He did not say that He was the one bringing the tribulation or what the tribulation would be, but He said it would come. Then He made the amazing statement that in the midst of tribulation we were to be of good cheer. Tribulations exist because there is a battle between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of the devil. When we operate in faith, God is able to grant us such victory that we are actually better off because of the battle. It's just like when a army goes to war. If they win, they gain spoils. But if they embrace their enemy because of the spoils they were expecting to receive, they will be killed instead of blessed. First, you have to fight and win the war and then, and only then, will the spoils be available. The enemy doesn't come to be a blessing, but a blessing can be obtained from the enemy if we are victorious. Likewise, tribulations and adversities are not blessings from God. They are attacks from the enemy intended to steal the Word of God out of our lives. No man should say that the temptation came from God, for God is not the one who tempts any man (James 1:13). If problems were what perfected us, then most Christians would have been perfected long ago and those who experienced the greatest problems would be the greatest Christians. However, that's not the way it is. God's Word is given to us to make us perfect, and thoroughly furnished unto every good work (2 Timothy 3:17). God's Word does not need to be supplemented with problems to accomplish its work.
