This is the most glorious times of the ages for the true believers. The Bride is preparing for her transition to be with her husband. Only the character of the pure word of Gd will stand and be ready to depart this world. bear with me as we look at the signs in these last days.
Many people ask, “Do you believe we are in the last days?” The only answer we can give comes from the Scriptures. The apostle Paul in his second letter to Timothy gives us a very clear answer:
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” II Timothy 3:1
The word perilous means “troublesome, dangerous, harsh, fierce, and savage.” As we view the trouble in the Middle East, our war on terrorism, the threat of more terrorist acts against these United States, and all our people around the earth, a failing economy, layoffs, truly, we are living in perilous times. The last days question answers itself if we only watch the news and read the Bible. Paul gave Timothy more signs of the last days when he wrote:
“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,” II Timothy 3:2
Men truly have come to the place where they do not feel they need God, and mostly, they believe God just gets in their way. This is a covetous nation. All the financial news talks about it is how to become wealthy. The church is leading this get rich scheme and the members are falling for it. There is no mention of the needs of the poor, the helpless, or the homeless.
Boasters and proud of their covetous way of life, disobedient to parents. Children have their parents arrested if they are corrected or when they do not get their own way. The problem climb when crooked politicians took prayers oout the school and dicipline out the hands of the parents. It was that parental discipline that brought me to this place and I say thanks to my parents. Paul stated, when people become unthankful and unholy, we are truly in the last days. Today all people want is more and more, and they do not care how they get it, by the “hook or crook”, all is fair and accepted in the business world. Timothy continues:
“Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. II Timothy 3:3-4
Without natural affection, abortion and child abuse runs rampant, while society looks the other way. Truce breakers, lying has become an accepted art form. Paul spoke of the people becoming incontinent which means intemperate, with no self-control. They hate those who are good in the sight of God. They love the pleasures or this modern life, more than they love God. The church is no better. As Paul wrote:
“Having a form of godliness, but denying that power thereof: from such turn away.” II Timothy 3:5
The organized church has a form of godliness, but deny the power of the Holy Spirit to work in their lives. Yes, we truly are living in the last days. Even the smallest church is on a rampage to get recognition and the pust for power. Rather that getting involved in the word of God and how to feed their flock they are riddled with confusion and itching ears.
