LAST DAYS - Perilous Times
If the disciples understood the time in which they lived 2000 years ago as the latter times before Jesus returns then surely we believe that if we discern the times in which we live, according to scripture, it is very evident for those with eyes to see and ears to hear that we are living in the last days of the last days before Christs return. ! (Acts 2:17, Hebrews 1:2, 1 John 2:18).
Of course many will mock us, as we read in 2 Peter 3:3-4,
"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation."
We are nearing the end of this current age and on the cusp of what prophecy reveals as a time period of Great Tribulation such as the world has never seen (Matthew 24:21). We base this belief solely on the many prophetic biblical signs and warnings given by our Lord Jesus ), his chosen prophets and apostles and what has transpired over the course of history and how we see things escalating day by day.
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. -MATTHEW CHAPTER 24:3:-14
"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;" - LUKE 2:25
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. - LUKE 17:26-30
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables"
2 TIMOTHY 4:3-4
While these passages merely scratch the surface of the depth of end times prophecy our ministry will serve as a watchman sounding the alarm as prophecy unveils and the pages of the Book of Revelation unfold we will dedicate much of our efforts discussing end times world events and how they apply to the current age in which we live and how we can prepare ourselves spiritually by studying the Holy scriptures of what is yet to come.
