“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.”
Just exactly WHO in the end times will be marking ‘them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned’?
And just WHERE will this ‘contrary doctrine’ be preached? Certainly not in the world.
In the churches.
And so true Christians will be labeled “troublemakers” by those who control the buildings known as “churches.”
Regardless of what some may insist, in the end times the true Christian will be looked upon as a “troublemaker” by those in the pagan churches.
Deception is now so thick, one could cut it with a knife–and it will only get worse..
The Apostate Church has been chugging along for quite some time now
Long enough so that what was once evil is now proclaimed to be good–and what was good is now determined to be evil.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! “
Long enough, in fact, so that heresies and blasphemies permeate the church to such a degree that few now pay them much attention.
Long enough so that the scandalous doctrines that were popular in the mega-churches ten years ago have now seeped into the capillaries of the smaller, visible churches.
Things will get worse–much worse–but for now, many of the few remaining watchmen are being thrown off the walls by those they watch over.
The linked, short article covers why that is.
END TIMES CHURCHES
The Bible describes the people who populate the end times churches.
It is not very complimentary.
What does the Bible say about those who inhabit the end times churches?
Grievous wolves, ravening wolves, wolves in sheep’s clothing, seducers, evil men, false prophets, false Christs, ungodly men, “men…speaking perverse things,” false teachers, “them which cause division and offences contrary to doctrine…by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple,” false apostles, deceitful workers, “ministers of Satan” who present themselves as “ministers of righteousness,” ear-tickling false teachers: this is who the Bible warns will be in the churches.

The Bible also describes who the end times churches will be worshiping.
It is not very complimentary.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast… And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
The Bible also describes who it is the dragon and the beast consider “troublemakers.”
“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
The dragon will be at war with the saints. Those in the churches (most of whom believed they would be whisked off to heaven at the first sign of trouble–in spite of what God’s Word declares) will still be sitting in their seats in the churches. And they will still be shaking their heads at the “troublemakers” who are “getting what they deserve.”
Jesus questioned if He would “find faith on the earth” when He returned.
It was not a rhetorical question.
“Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
Is the reader a “troublemaker“?
Or is he comfortable with whatever he is told by those who prowl the pulpits?
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
