Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous his thoughts: and let them return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon them; for our God, will abundantly pardon.
Brethren, it is with due diligence that I write unto thee of the common salvation; too exhort thee to examine the Word of God. That ye may, earnestly contend for the faith, which was once delivered unto thee.
Too remind thee that the Lord destroyed all those who refused to hold fast to their faith… after saving them out the land of Egypt. For many in Israel, departed from the faith and sought to be bound again unto Egypt… as servants of the world. These were they who pursued the ways of Cain and Balaam… and, perished in the rebellion of Korah. Will ye not learn and repent? (See Heb 6:4-8, 11:38, 2Pet 2:20-22; Jude 3-11)
It is expedient that ye be reminded of the doctrine of Christ, that ye may resist every wind, carried about by the deceitfulness of men. For certain men have crept in among thee; whose, damnable heresy’s corrupt the Grace of God, turning it into an excuse for lasciviousness… By this, many now deny the Truth and have fallen away. (Eph 4:14, 2Th 2:3 &11, Jude 3-4, 18-19)
The hour is late, the righteous are warned too keep the faith, and the wicked too repent:
Too, expel the leaven from thy midst…
Too, exhort sound doctrine and contend for the True faith…
Too, refute compromise with the world.
Too, warn the wicked of his ways, that they may repent.
A good minister of Jesus Christ shall call the brethren into remembrance of these things… That, the righteous may contend for the true faith and warn the unrighteous. That the wicked may find space to repent; while, the Spirit of God remains with man.(See Gen 6:3, 1Tim 4:6 Rev 2:5, 16, 20-21, 3:3)
The Lord would say: "Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold I stand at the door and knock…" Will ye hear, and open thy door? (Rev 3:19-20)
Your Brother in Christ;
