2-17-2016 A Lost Generation

In Proverbs 30:11-14 NKJV, a generation is identified by 4 characteristics. “There is a generation that curses its father, And does not bless its mother.” They have no respect for parents. “There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, Yet is not washed from its filthiness.” They are self-righteous and judgmental of others. “There is a generation-oh, how lofty are their eyes! And their eyelids are lifted up.” They are full of pride. “There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, And whose fangs are like knives, To devour the poor from off the earth, And the needy from among men.” Their selfish wants takes from others to get it. To “be saved from this perverse generation” (Acts 2:40 NKJV),”Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38 NKJV).
