The Apostasy Of David Wilkerson

Specific Apostasies

Specific apostasies start with Adam in Genesis 3 and they stretch throughout the New Testament. Some returned to salvation and some didn't! Among the many apostasies are king David, king Solomon, the apostle Judas Iscariot, the apostle Peter, Demas, Hymenaeus and Philetus (2 Tim 2:17,18) and many who were unnamed. It is for good reason we read:
All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. (Mat 10:22)
We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first. (Heb 3:14)
