Save Yourself from This Perverse Generation

By David J. Stewart | March 2011

Acts 2:40, “...Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”

       Acts 2:40, “...Save yourselves from this untoward generation.” The word “untoward” in Acts 2:40 means “perverse, crooked”; and that is exactly what America has become today. The Bible says, SAVE YOURSELF FROM THIS PERVERSE GENERATION. And then the next verse in Acts 2:41 tells us that 3,000 souls were saved that day and added to the Church. The answer is not rehabilitation, nor education, nor reformation, nor legislation; but rather, REGENERATION by the Gospel power of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16). Ye must be born again (John 3:5). To be “born-again” means to have He Who is the Beginning (Jesus) born in You! That is the hope of America!

The Apostle Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost, telling the multitude of listeners to save themselves from the perverted and crooked generation in which they lived. As a result of Peter's invitation to come to Christ to be saved, to escape the doom of their madhouse generation... 3,000 souls were saved that day. The message hasn't changed in 2,000 years.

I come to you today as a Christian and warn you sternly... SAVE YOURSELF FROM THIS INSANE, PERVERTED, AND CRAZY GENERATION in which we live! Please don't go to Hell with all the other fools. Worshipping statues like Catholics do won't get you into Heaven. People have lost their minds today! God hates the sin of idolatry; yet, people actually think it's the way of salvation in Roman Catholicism. The official Vatican position on Our Lady of Fatima is that Mary can save those who come to her by way of reciting the Rosary. That's BLASPHEMY!!! Yet, that's official Catholic dogma—and it's a doctrine of devils.

Save yourselves from this perverse and crooked, fornicating, abortion-loving, child-murdering, pleasure-seeking, totally-irresponsible generation!

Acts 2:40, “...Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”

SAVE YOURSELF FROM THIS PERVERSE GENERATION of crooked Roman Catholicism... come to Jesus Christ instead my friend, and be truly forgiven and saved. No Catholic priest can forgive. Priest John Corapi cannot absolve your sins—he can only make matters worse and get you into even more trouble with God than you already are. SAVE YOURSELF while you still can... run to Jesus!!! Get on the ark before the flood comes! The end is likely near. If nothing else, the end of your life could happen TODAY! Life is very short my friend. Healthy people drop dead all the time, while deathly sick people endure for decades in the worst of circumstances. Go figure! Proverb 27:1 reminds us that anything can happen without notice, so don't boast about tomorrow... for it may never come for you on earth.

I thought it was very interesting that the Apostle Peter told everyone present at Pentecost (at least 16 different nations are mentioned, Acts 2:9-11) to save themselves from their perverse and crooked generation. Peter echoed these words again in Philippians 2:15, “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of A CROOKED AND PERVERSE NATION, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.” In 2011 we undeniably live in a perverse and crooked world. The world has gone insane. They're now selling cow urine soft-drinks in India so followers of the Hindu religion can express their faith more. Tell me that the world hasn't gone insane? Check my Disturbing Truths page, but you'll likely lose some sleep tonight.

Society is absolutely insane. We have gone whacko tobacco in the world. We are living in loonyville today on planet earth. This world has deteriorated into one giant insane asylum. Someone please open the lion's and tiger's cage at the zoo so I can live with them and be safe from people.

Save yourselves from this homosexual, lesbian-lusting, gay-clergy, Sodomite generation that ignores the reality of the consequences of sin (Romans 1:32), despises and changes the truth of God's Word into a lie (Romans 1:25), and are the enemies of God (James 4:4)... whose god is their belly (Philippians 3:18-19, “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things”).

Please don't go to Hell with this wicked generation. We are enduring through wicked times. 2nd Timothy 2:3, “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” We are at spiritual war today (Ephesians 6:12). Most people aren't on the Lord's side. Nearly everyone is bound for the Lake of Fire in their sins. I dare say that only 1 out of 100 people are truly saved. You are not saved unless you have been born-again by the Spirit of God, by the Seed of God's Word (1st Peter 1:23). If you don't have the Holy Spirit of God living inside you, then you are not saved (Romans 8:9). It's that simple!

Have you been born-again? Have you acknowledged your guilt of sin before God, i.e., your sinnership? And have you believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God, the Christ, Jesus, to forgive your sins? If so, then you are saved. We are the SINNER and Jesus is the SAVIOR! Salvation is receiving, not giving. It is the free gift of God, paid for by Jesus' precious, literal, blood (1st Peter 1:18,19). Salvation is received, not achieved. You just take it, it's a gift.

Tragically, this untoward generation loves their sins so much that they won't come to Jesus to be saved, LEST HIS DEEDS SHOULD BE REPROVED the Bible says in John 3:20. Sin hinders people from getting saved. So many false ministers pervert the Gospel by teaching that a person cannot be saved unless they are willing to stop living in sin; but the Bible teaches that people who love their sins WON'T come to Christ to be saved. So the problem takes care of itself. What we need to do is leave the Gospel alone and teach the plain Biblical truth that the gift of God has absolutely NOTHING to do with one's desire to forsake their sins.

A man recently told me that he warned a bi-sexual family member that God wouldn't allow any bisexuals into Heaven. The man is sincere, but wrong. God will allows murderers like David and adulterers like Mary Magdalene into Heaven, and a good thing or else horrible sinners like you and I wouldn't be allowed in either. The gift of God has nothing to do with whether or not one has forsaken a particular sin in their life.

Albeit, the truth is that the bisexual man in question has a better chance of winning a trip to the moon than of getting to Heaven one day; because of his love for sin that keeps him from coming to Christ to be saved. The Lord Jesus wants to save all men, but love for sin prevents men from coming to Christ to be saved. If you understand this Biblical truth, then you fully realize that the entire teaching of Lordship Salvation is bogus, unnecessary, and unscriptural in every way.

On my website ministry, I defend the purity of the Gospel message as taught in the Bible. I am not going to cater to the semantical ignorance of ministers who don't understand the free grace Gospel verses living a consecrated life for Christ. Salvation is a free gift without any works of self-righteousness (Romans 4:5-6), and the vilest sinner may have eternal life without so much as a desire to give up one sin (Ephesians 2:8-9). Albeit, the truth is that nearly all sinners WON'T come within 10-feet of the Gospel for fear of having their deeds exposed and reproved as being evil, sinful, and of the Devil.

Most professed Christians today are as lost as the Devil, but it's not because they still have sins in their life; No, rather, it's because they've never truly been born-again to begin with and so there has been no changed life.

Acts 2:40, “...Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”

What is the answer you ask?

How can I save myself from this perverse generation? The answer is to get saved. The solution is in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. God the Father sent His beloved Son into this horrible world to pay for our sins, so that He could redeem us back to Himself. Jesus is the Christ, the Savior, the precious Son of God. If you believe that Jesus died, was buried, and rose to pay for YOUR SINS, then you will be saved for trusting upon Him. This is the promise of John 20:31, “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”

The Bible is not telling us to give ourselves eternal life, for we CANNOT do that. The Bible is telling us to save ourselves by allowing Jesus to save us. By placing our faith in Jesus Christ to forgive our sins, we are escaping the wrath of God to come against the wicked (Romans 5:9). Jesus is the ONLY lifeboat my friend. In Acts 2:40 the Greek word for “save” is “sozo,” meaning to “deliver or protect” one's self. In other words, the world is headed for utter doom and destruction in the Lake of Fire; but you DON'T have to join them. There is eternal life and forgiveness of sins available, but ONLY through the name of Jesus Christ (John 14:6). Get on the lifeboat. Jesus is waiting!

Most people are fools are won't accept God's offer (1st Corinthians 1:21). It will soon be too late. Just as it was too late once God closed the door on the ark, so will it be too late once you breathe your last breath or the Rapture happens and you're left behind. God will send you strong delusion the Bible says (2nd Thessalonians 2:9-10). God will harden your wicked unbelieving heart, just as He did Pharaoh's stubborn heart in Exodus. 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 tells us that those who are blinded during the Tribulation will be done so because they RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH when they had the chance to get saved. NOW IS THAT TIME WHOEVER YOU MAY BE! Today is the day of salvation!!!

The Bible is telling us in Acts 2:40 to escape the same doom that 99% of humanity is going to face—when they are all cast into the Lake of Fire to suffer the eternal vengeance of God's wrath in Hell (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). SAVE YOURSELF while you still can. The choice is yours alone to make! No one can, nor will, force you to come to Jesus to be saved. Jesus said in John 5:40, “And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.” Notice that Jesus says YE WILL NOT, rather than YE CANNOT. People WILL NOT, of their own free sinful choice, come to the Lord to be saved. WHOSOEVER will may be saved (John 3:16). God will forgive and save the vilest sinner who comes in the name of Jesus to be saved (Isaiah 1:18; Acts 4:10-12).

Acts 2:40, “...Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”

God will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:7, “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” The Bible always associates a changed life with salvation—not because you have to change your life to be saved; but rather, because being saved changes your life. That's something that a lot of people confuse and misunderstand, and so they pervert and teach a false view of the Gospel, requiring men to forsake their sinful ways to be saved. No Sir, it doesn't work that way. When you come to Jesus to be forgiven of your sins, then God changes you over time. God makes the necessary changes AFTER a person is in Christ. 2nd Corinthians 5:17 says “Therefore, if any man “BE IN CHRIST, he is a new creature...” Notice that he is already “IN CHRIST,” i.e., he is saved, and now there are changes happening in that person's life as the Holy Spirit deals with them on a daily basis (1st Peter 2:2). Changes take time, just as a new born babe must first learn to crawl, and then walk, before that person can run a marathon.

In Matthew 24:37-38 Jesus warned that the world in the Last Days would once again return to the apostasy of Noah's time, when people lived only to eat, drink, have sex, and party; having no desire for THE TRUTH, nor concern for the things of Jesus Christ. Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: BECAUSE THOU HAST REJECTED KNOWLEDGE, I will also reject thee...” They deliberately rejected the truth, just as people today deliberately sit in front of their idolatrous TV; knowing that they're being lied to, but are too lazy , unspiritual, and wicked in their hearts to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES, to listen to alternative news sources, to read books that aren't on the New-York-Times Best-Seller BRAINWASHING List, and to seek out wisdom (Proverb 18:1).

You have to want the truth or you won't get it. 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 says that the world's idiotic masses will follow THE BEAST because they RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH. If all you do is watch TV, then you DO NOT love the truth at all. You're brainwashed and indoctrinated and are a mess in your mind and opinions. You know nothing but lies, distortions, and misinformation. You are an educated fool. That's what television does to people.

Acts 2:40, “...Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”

The Bible is telling us to save ourselves by allowing Jesus to save us. By placing our faith in Jesus Christ to forgive our sins, we are escaping the wrath of God to come (Romans 5:9). 1st Corinthians 16:22, “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.” Here again the Bible associates loving Jesus with salvation. We do live right to get saved; we live right because we are saved. Paul said if any man doesn't love Jesus, i.e., is not saved, let him be cursed (anathema) for the Lord is coming (Maranatha). The storm clouds are gathering my friend. The rains are beginning to fall. The ark door is still upon and the invitation to the world is still WHOSOEVER WILL MAY COME. Revelation 22:17, “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And WHOSOEVER WILL, let him take the water of life freely.”

What are you waiting for... SAVE YOURSELF FROM THIS PERVERSE GENERATION... get on the ark... trust Jesus Christ to forgive your sins!!! Don't wait another minute. Don't play Russian Roulette with your eternal happiness. If you reject God's gift and goodness now, then you will have no one to blame later except yourself when you're burning and being tormented in the molten sulfur and flames of Hell forever and ever and ever. Revelation 14:11, “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

Acts 2:40, “...Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”
