When Satan Resorts To Mockery


“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 3:3-5

” But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.”
–Jude 1:17-18

Though it may be DIFFICULT to remember when one is beset on all sides by the world’s MOCKERY, one should remember that old childhood rhyme:

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will NEVER hurt me.”

NOW, words DO have the power to hurt and wound a body.

BUT, words ONLY have the power the listener gives to them.

IF the listener pays NO heed to those words, those words are essentially, POWERLESS.

THEREFORE, when the devil and his workers of iniquity come mocking–and they will–the reader would do well to NOT give their words any power.

In other words, do NOT pay any attention to what they are saying.

NOW, this is advice which MANY mothers over the years have given their children, but it is TRUE.

The ‘antidote’ to mockery may just be that old childhood taunt:

I know you are but what am I?

Whether that old taunt is true or not highlights who has the POWER when one begins mockery of another.

IF the mocking words are given any credence, THEN they have the power the mocker intended: the power to wound; the power to sting.

On the other hand, IF the mocking words are mostly IGNORED, then they do NOT have the power intended by the mocker.  They are only words and ONLY have the power given to them by the one being mocked.

Something to remember when Satan–and the world–comes mocking.

WHAT does the reader believe about mocking?

IS mockery terrible–or not-so-bad?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“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
