We are told to teach the Bible. We are told to stay true to the Bible. We are warned that in time people will turn from God and instead seek after “fables.”
2 Timothy 4:1 – I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
We are told to reprove. – elegcho el-eng’-kho of uncertain affinity; to confute, admonish:–convict, convince, tell a fault, rebuke, reprove.
We are told to rebuke. – epitimao ep-ee-tee-mah’-o; to tax upon, i.e. censure or admonish; by implication, forbid:–(straitly) charge, rebuke
We are told to exhort. – parakaleo par-ak-al-eh’-o; to call near, i.e. invite, invoke (by imploration, hortation or consolation):–beseech, call for, (be of good) comfort, desire, (give) exhort(-ation), intreat, pray.
Why? Because they will accuse us of judging them, because they wish to live in a myth, a fairytale, a fable of their own creation that they call Jesus, but it is not. For they have strayed from the true teachings of Christ and have embraced that which is a lie, because the truth was too harsh for them to handle, which is why we are told to reprove, rebuke and exhort them.
We now live in these times and we need to stand our ground and make it known what is true, good and holy within the teaching of “the Word,” the Bible.
It is now that all that truly call themselves “Christian” must step fully into the light and make all fully known that is true, that is Jesus, that is GOD
