We are reminded of Jesus words–for this time in which we are living:
Matthew 24:21–22 (ESV)
21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. 22 And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
Bless you, Pastor Barkman for this study and may it lead many to the Cross of Jesus Christ to find His Grace and Salvation. Amen~
In our text, we can see that the false religions of this world traffic in the “souls of men”. In other words, they profit from the lives of men, their passions, and their lifestyles. They profit from men as they appeal to their lustful desires and their goals.
Stop and think about it, in most cases, the false teachings of Satan’s kingdoms appeal to the carnal nature of man. Some religions say that there is no god or higher authority to which men must answer. Others, say that there is a god but all roads lead to him. There are others who will tell men they can please god through proper motives or moral works. There are those who say that all truth is relative and man has the ability to discern what is truth in any given situation.
