Really, there is no time to spend and to waste. Everything is pointing to the final consummation of the age.

The subject today is "THE GREAT APOSTASY"
1st Timothy chapter 4 verses 1- 3
“But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by them that believe and know the truth”
Again 2 Timothy chapter 4 verses 1 to 4
“I charge thee in the sight of God, and of Christ Jesus, who shall judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be urgent in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables”
Finally, the book of Matthew chapter 24 verse 12
“And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold”
When you hear the word "apostasy", What is it?
a. It is an act of defection
b. It is a state of backsliding, heresy, or abandoning the truth
c. It is a total desertion or departure of the real way ( especially in a religion)
So,From the places, we read we discovered many things about the hour mankind is living in today. Friend, this is the time the Word of God is talking about- the time of great apostasy. Apostle Paul charged his son in the faith- Timothy, to preach the undiluted truth of God’s word, having seen that a time comes when men would no longer care for sound doctrine, rather pursuing shadows. Mark that word "sound" which means, not every word from the mouth of some people are sound. It may look like truth but not whole truth. You know these days, we have many orators and charismatic players. Some are smart and we think they are anointed.
My Brothers and Sisters, The word of God reveals that the end time before the coming of the Lord will be characterized by great apostasy. I mean, a great falling away from the original, orthodox teachings of the faith. People should choose their way. Truth shall be a rare commodity.
In 1st Timothy chapter 4 verses 1 to 3, the Word of God gives us a few pictures of the apostasy. You are hearing many teachings these days. The Spirit of God now speaks expressly that majority even, people inside the church, though clapping their hands and shouting ‘Amen’ like a thunder, shall depart from the faith and getting married to seducing spirits and satanic doctrines. Friend, there is satanic doctrines going around now. The reason why you may not have seen it,is maybe, you have no original. If you have an original, when you see fake or counterfeit, you will know it. Some people are now speaking lies in hypocrisy. In as much as they get their daily bread through manipulation, threat and intimidation, they care not. No wonder, we see confusion here and there.Why? many people are moving around with consciences already seared with hot iron.
