Tuesday, February 13/26, 2013: 2Peter 2:9-22, Mark 13:14-23
- passage: 2Peter 2:9-2:22
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to
reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly
them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise
government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to
speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power
and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak
evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in
their own corruption; And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness,
as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are
and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they
feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease
from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with
covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way,
and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who
loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity:
the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest;
to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak
great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the
flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them
who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are
the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same
is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions
of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse
with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to
have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to
turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened
unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own
vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
passage: Mark 13:14-13:23
But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by
Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth
understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither
enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: And let him that is
in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. But woe
to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. For in those days
shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation
which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that
the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for
the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is
there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise,
and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even
the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
