    Jesus preached to the unsaved, some believed some didn't, and He just kept walking and preaching, healing. Same with Paul. And others. No matter how hard it was, when it seemed no one was listening, they kept on, in the joy of the Lord.

    Aletha:Yes! Very! For The Time is here, that They won't endure Sound Doctrine:2Timothy 4:1-8 / The Night cometh,when no Man can Work. John9:4 /The Night is far Spent--- put on The Armour of Light. Romans 13:10-14./ They run from The Light: John 3:19. / Sometimes I sit in my room, Numb! Spiritually depressed: Eternity is coming They don't care.

    Vs. 11 especially speaks to me at a time when it is VERY difficult to find a place of worship that doesn't have a "subculture" of gossiping and backbiting. Many times the Pastor's are not aware that these "busy bodies" are eroding His Church. People ultimately leave the ministries. Sad to see this happening †

    Vs 5 don't be ignorant their was a first earth age. Destruction Jer. 4:20-27 Why? Ezekiel 28 Satans downfall where he wanted to be God but is only a man, pride, sin. Satan got one third of Gods children to follow him and they road that tail in Rev.12:4 and in Matt. 13:36 -40 it explains that Satan sends his tares, children to earth just like God does. 1st earth age spiritual bodies. 2nd age flesh.
