My birthday present to you in 2017!!! Some say I am retired!?! Could have fooled me! But I say – the voice more powerful just keeps on calling – stay persistent do not get discouraged by people seeking their own desires . The promise made will be a lasting treasure! My birthday gift to those willing to listen and with ears willing to hear! From 2 Timothy 4:
I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingly power:
a 2; be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient; convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching.
b 3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity,* will accumulate teachers
c 4 and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths.
d 5 But you, be self-possessed in all circumstances; put up with hardship; perform the work of an evangelist; fulfill your ministry.
Has this day (b 3;) already arrived? What myths (c 4;) has the world embraced? Who has the courage (d 5;) to be open, listen and speak the truth?
