SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN
1. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.
2. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Thy friend friendship suits me well,
Both young and will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.
3. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.
4. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee
5. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds be black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.
6. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?

Father, save your children from the perilous times. Redeem all your children who become victims of the perilous times, in Jesus name.
MEMORY VERSE: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come”. — 2TIMOTHY 3:1
BIBLE PASSAGE: 2TIMOTHY 3:1-5
2 Timothy 3:1
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.
2 Timothy 3:2
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
2 Timothy 3:3
without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,

having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

INTRODUCTION

The translated word for “perilous” in 2Timothy 3-1 is ‘chalepos’, which means troublesome, dangerous, harsh, fierce, full of risk, hazardous, harmful, dreadful, threatening. The term,”last days”, refers to the period between Christ’s accession into Heaven and his second coming. “Perilous” constitute part of the last days.’The last days’ is not just a prophecy, it started from the days of the Bible (Hebrew 1:2; 1John 2:18-19). The importance of the prophecy and warning against the perilous times cannot be over emphasised because we are living in the fulfillment of the perilous times. The purpose of this study is to carefully consider the writing of Paul to Timothy in 2Timothy 3:1-5 on the things that characterise the ‘Perilous Times’ and the position every believer in Christ should take.
