We begin this series by looking at Ezekiel 34 when God gives a severe warning to those who have been called to be shepherds yet are not caring for the flock, not going after the scattered, not healing the hurting.

Sadly, this is creeping into the Church. Evil men and imposters will go from bad to even worse. They will deceive many. So how do we escape the deception of the spirit of this age?

Difficult Times Will Come

We are told in 1 Timothy 3:1-5 that in the last days men will become lovers of self, lovers of money, and lovers of pleasure.  Other words are also describe the condition of mankind in the last days.  While we may see this deterioration of society taking place around us, as Christians, we must stand firm in godly behavior and speech that he has called us to.

Usually bitterness begins with a small misunderstanding or offense. Sometimes bitterness is caused by a legitimate concern of being mistreated. Regardless, bitterness will grow if unchecked, and eventually can cause devastating effects on us. Even more important, bitterness can turn off the flow of God’s grace over our lives. It is essential that we know how to avoid bitterness and how to overcome it.
