MOCKERS AND SCOFFERS: Part of the End Times Scenery

Mockers and scoffers

MOCKERS AND SCOFFERS

Mockers and scoffers, so the Bible tells us, are a part of the end times scenery.

Get used to them.

“How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.”
–Jude 1:18

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
–2Peter 4:3-4

Most mockers and scoffers in the end times engage in mocking and scoffing when they are caught with nothing else to say. Having nothing else to say, they ridicule, scorn, mock and scoff.

Most often, they are caught trying to justify evil by calling it good.

When this happens, the believer should quote Isaiah 5:20

“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!”
Isaiah 5:20

It might seem to do little good to quote Isaiah to mockers and scoffers, but do it anyway.

For two reasons.

1- The mockers might convert and save themselves great woe.

2- The mockers will not convert–but will have something to think about during their eternity of woe.

Is the reader plagued by mockers and scoffers?

OR, is the reader a mocker and scoffer himself?

IF the latter is true, there is STILL yet a little time to change your direction.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

THE GOSPEL

“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.”
-–Romans 1:16

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
2 Corinthians 4:3
