PROPHETIC WARNINGS - Mockings, Perilous Times

When a nation is under judgment, Deuteronomy 28 spells out how one can tell. We read of multiple examples in the early chapters of Exodus as the Pharaoh that opposed Jehovah came under judgment for his defiance against God's Will. Because of Pharaoh, food sources were destroyed, Egypt was littered with dead and dying livestock and animals, homes and public buildings were destroyed or heavily damaged because that's what judgments do -- they destroy and dismantle a nation's infrastructure and the economy. David Wilkerson wrote in several of his books the different signs of judgment upon a nation.

When a nation is under judgment WARNINGS OF ALARM AND PAST PROPHETIC WORDS AND REMINDERS OF JUDGMENT ARE IGNORED, GO UNHEEDED.

David Wilkerson, Racing Toward Judgment (pg 27):

God will judge this nation for turning a deaf ear to true prophecies of both deliverance and destruction. . . . God has warned this nation in love, hoping and pleading for a people to seek Him and call upon Him for help.

Prophetic warning: The warnings of God will be mocked.

The very first occurrence of the word 'mocked' in the KJV of the Bible is found in Genesis 19:14.

And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city (Sodom). But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

The Blue Letter Bible notes that 'mocked' in this verse means 'to jest.'

Meaning?

Lot's sons-in-law thought he was joking.

But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy. (2 Chronicles 16: 36)

Note that when judgment falls, it usually falls suddenly and without warning.

Another note -- people are usually running for their lives.

If they can.

Prophetic warning: Men of God will warn the wicked.

The very first use of the phrase 'the wicked' in the King James is found in Genesis 18: 23. Abraham uses the phrase to describe the people of Sodom and Gomorrah to God.

And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. (Ezekiel 33: 9)

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; (2 Peter 2: 5)

Prophetic warning: In the last days perilous times will come . . . (2 Timothy 3: 1)

The phrase 'perilous times' occurs only this once in the King James,and it is found in 2 Timothy 3: 1. It is a phrase that means 'hard to take, hard to bear, dangerous, fierce.'

In the last days perilous times will come . . . deceivers will 'creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts' (2 Timothy 3: 6)

In the last days perilous times will come . . . evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (2 Timothy 3: 13)

Blue Letter Bible notes that the use of the word "deceiving" means "to lead away from the truth."

The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. (Psalm 58: 3)

He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. (Psalm 101: 7)

And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the Lord. (Jeremiah 9: 3)
