I have been frustrated for weeks now because of what is happening in the world. I become thoroughly disgusted every time I read and listen to the headlines of the long list of international media houses that I follow. It has been disheartening to see people wax worse, delude themselves and pretend there is no Almighty God.

The thought "Am I making a difference with my minuscule ministry?" even crossed my mind but I quickly rebuked the adversary because I knew that that was a fiery dart from him. I am hurt, heartbroken and wounded within because of all the [still have not found a word to describe it] in the news yet I will continue to proclaim the Epignosis of the Word of God and continue to say: "Get thee behind me satan, for it is written...

In the book of 2 Peter, chapter 2:

“For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.” (v. 20-23)

The scripture says we ‘escaped’ (Greek—APOPHEUGO, pronounced ä-po-fyü'-gō) or fled from the pollutions of the world through the ‘knowledge’ (Greek—EPIGNOSIS, pronounced e-pē'-gnō-sēs), that is, through the ‘precise and correct knowledge’ of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The ‘pollutions’ (Greek—MIASMA, pronounced mē'-ä-smä) are those things which defile or contaminate us. This may happen when we walk in the counsel of the ungodly, stand in the way with sinners and sit in the seat of the scornful (Psalm 1). ‘World’ (Greek—KOSMOS, pronounced ko'-smos) refers here to the world as well as to the universe as a harmonious arrangement, constitution or order.

If we are again ‘entangled’ (Greek—EMPLEKO, pronounced em-ple'-kō) then we are involved in and woven into the pollutions. If we are ‘overcome’ (Greek—GINOMAI, pronounced gē'-no-mī, and HETTAOMAI, pronounced hāt-tä'-o-mī) in our entanglement then we become less than or inferior and are made worst or conquered by the pollutions from which we had escaped.

The scripture rightly says that it would have been better not to know, than to know and turn away. It is clearly talking about people that had accepted Christ and then rejected Him. The scripture likens them to a dog eating its own vomit and a washed hog returning to the mud.

It is also written:

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
