Perilous Season of Perishing Sinners

"Fret not thyself because of evildoers… For they shall soon be cut down like the grass" (Psalm 37:1,2).  "Thus saith the LORD… Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls?... [They] shall know whose words shall stand, Mine, or theirs" (Jeremiah 44:7,28).  "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be… ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth… All scripture is given by inspiration of God, that the man of God may be… thoroughly furnished" (2 Timothy 3:1-7,16,17). 

This season very soon shall pass
In which the scorners still increase,
For they shall be cut down as grass,
And all their mocking then shall cease. 

Though sinners think that they control
The final word on education,
Their arrogance betrays their soul,
Resulting in their condemnation. 

These are the days God said would come;
They should not take us by surprise. 
Yet God may use us to save some,
For he that wins a soul is wise. 

This season, Lord, is perilous,
Of sinners perishing today!  
We need Your Word instructing us,
That we may reach them as we pray.
