“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”
II Timothy 4:1-5 NKJV
We live in the days the scriptures spoke about, when people cannot endure sound doctrines, when people desire to hear what they want to hear. This means that people no longer desire to know the truth, will not accept when they're wrong and will reject any correction. Many Pastors today cannot preach the truth because of personal gains and the fear of losing members. But the word encourages us to preach the truth of God's word in and out of season.
