Remember—A Key to Standing Strong in the Faith!
1. Remember God’s Judgment on the Wicked (5-10)
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”
Warning: Resist false teachers because of their final judgment.
2. Remember God’s Judgment on the False Teachers of the Past (11-16)
The deeds of false teachers today are no less evil. They may masquerade as prophets of light, but they are full of darkness.
Warning: Resist false teachers because of their evil words and deeds.
3. Remember the Words of the Apostles about the days to come (17-19)
1 Timothy 4:1-2
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared.”
2 Timothy 4:3-4
“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.”
Warning: Resist false teachers because they are not from God.
If you don’t remember what God says in his word, you will not be able to resist the influence of false teachers in your life and in the church.
