Difficult Times Will Come — Are Here Now!
I have seen the days change, and watched it with my own eyes and heart. I have experienced the difference between the way it was back then in 1943 and now in 2021.
I have stood in pulpits now for many years, preached to many people and saw their response, and now is very difficult times for the preacher to preach.
Once men somewhat listened, and many heard with hearts open, but now men are hard and unconcerned, even distant.
Religion abounds, but without heart-felt conviction and set up to please the flesh and without real Power of The Holy Spirit.
Read the description wrote in The Holy Word by the apostle Paul to young Timothy and see the description of “Difficult days coming”, then know they have arrived….
“1 But understand this, that in the last days dangerous times [of great stress and trouble] will come [difficult days that will be hard to bear].
2 For people will be lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused], lovers of money [impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane, 3 [and they will be] unloving [devoid of natural human affection, calloused and inhumane], irreconcilable, malicious gossips, devoid of self-control [intemperate, immoral], brutal, haters of good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of [sensual] pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of [outward] Godliness (religion), although they have denied its power [for their conduct nullifies their claim of faith]. Avoid such people and stay away from them.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5 emphasis added.
Please take note of the last line of v. 5
According to the apostle Paul, his advice was back then: avoid such people and stay away from them!
Why did the great apostle Paul warn men to avoid such people? I know the answer…. If one hangs around them they will be greatly hurt and even affected by the dull and lifeless spirit and way they live.
Mostly I have learned by [hard experience as a preacher of The Word] that these people are demon influenced and even tormented.
The demon in them will actually try to jump on you! When you allow any such person described above to come into your house or fellowship, just know you just let the devil walk into your front door. When the devil gets there, he will jump on you and hurt you.
So Paul warned about keeping company with them.
Watch out, and beware of sick religious people, for with them dwells many demons, and these demons will literally attack you.
These demons will not just hurt you, but they will try to kill you. Many do not think a “saved person” can have a demon in them, but this is so untrue, for when any person gives the devil room in their life, he will take it.
Demons lodge in their flesh, and live on the open door of false religion and untruth. The demon can thrive in the body of flesh of people [even a christian who is saved], if that person invites them in… keep away from them!
This admonition is not received favorably in today’s “Church settings”, for one who practices the above will be called legalistic or a judge over many; they will be rejected as bigots.
Today, the word is to love everybody and do not judge. It has become very bad to be found living for The LORD and walking away from that which is evil.
In today’s “religious circles” anything is okay. Just as long as you say you love them. This sort of attitude and belief system will greatly damage any young mind who in sincerity does not recognize the hideous nature of the beast.
There is then a real reason why The LORD says: “Avoid such people and stay away from them”…
And the reason is, it is dangerous and may even be life or death.

A reader asked this question:
How do we apply Luke 19:10, Jesus said, “The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” If we are to reach out for those that needs saving Grace of God without compromising ourself through Timothy 3?
Prophet Ken replied:
Thanks for your question.
There is a lot of difference between going to someone and teaching or preaching the Gospel to them.
Jesus went to Sinners houses and sat down with the Sinner and ate with them. Jesus was called the Friend of Sinners, but, you will not find Jesus approving them in sin. He did not compromise by witnessing to them, he led them to the truth. So must we.
We preach to them in Love and give them the message, then they must choose. But, no where are we command to receive the Sinner into the Church as is… the entrance to the Church is JESUS CHRIST THE DOOR TO THE SHEEPFOLD.
Jesus must know them and they must know him. He is Savior and it depends upon what they decide to do about receiving or rejecting Jesus.
So my answer is plainly, we can REACH OUT FOR THOSE IN NEED by going into the highways and byways and compelling them to come in.
The Church is for the Saved. Sinners cannot enter without being Born-Again and Saved. Then they will be added to the Church. But not until they are Saved and Born-Again.
Today so many invite the sinner to come in and they accept them AS THEY ARE.
The fact is many do not even preach that one must be Born-Again, nor do they teach the true Gospel Message.
I hope this helps..
