There are so many signs that tell us we are living in the last days of earth’s history. Not only do we have the main Bible signs, and the 6000-year timeline plan of God, we also have the apostle Paul’s description of the last days in 2 Timothy 3.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 …..”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.”
Would you agree that we are living in “perilous times”? I believe we are. But how can we be in the last days when so many people around the world are living normal happy lives, without a care in the world? …
Matthew 24:37-39 … “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
Do you see it? The reason so many people are carrying on as normal is that they don’t see the signs and they don’t know what is about to happen to this world. So they blindly carry on living as if nothing is going to happen, and these people will continue to live normal lives right up until the second coming of Jesus, at which point their lives will come to an abrupt end.
Let’s look at 2 Timothy 3:1-5 and compare what Paul says about the last days with where we are today.
