Signs of the Time










This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
 
2 Timothy 3:1











Many people speculate on when Jesus is returning to take those that follow Him away; also known as the rapture.  But Jesus said

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24:36-37



The bible records the days of Noah as exceedingly evil:


And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Genesis 6:5

In the world that we are living in today where there is much rioting and drunkenness,  chambering and wantonness, strife and envying.   It really makes me think Sodom and Gomorrah; even of Nineveh.  It sounds like the world has reached the same place as in the description of the days of Noah.  

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,  Matthew 14:37:38

¨     Though the human side of me detests all of the hatred leading to the senseless killings that are rampant today, 

¨     though I am saddened in my heart as I see more and more suicides and attempted suicides among every status of society, 

¨     though I simply hate what the rampant use and abuse of drugs is doing to our children and has done to a large portion of our adult society regardless of the race, 

¨     though I abhor the total loss of morality in regards to sexuality and marriage no matter the gender, 

¨     though I am baffled by the same sex/homosexual and same sex marriage issue, 

¨     though I am embarrassed for and outraged at all of the sexual harassment  activity now coming to light,

I am fully aware of what the word of God says in relation to these times we are now living. 

Because the word of God tells us of the things preceding Jesus' second coming. we should not be surprised at the cruel, heartless and downright evil activity that is at epidemic proportions today. 

Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they’re animals.

Apostle Paul describes the nature of people as worded above in this manner:

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. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:1-7

Those of us who believe in God and His word should recognize that we are living in the end times and thus we should be more about our heavenly Father’s business more now than ever before. 

God would not have us ignorant.

But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
2 Timothy 3:14

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.  2 Timothy 3:16-17

We know that through His word that when the world knows of God, then the end is coming.  

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 24:14

Yes, we mourn the senseless deaths, the moral decay that has eroded the very fabric of our society but saints, it is time to look up; be as the sons of Issachar and recognize the signs of the times.  

Come on church (body of Christ) let’s do our part and put an end to the gross darkness that has taken over the world.  This is not the time to be vying over church positions, arguing over religions and other insignificant things.  We need to be prayerful, be praying, be alert and be sharing the good news of Jesus!

  1. Thank you for this post, many people are troubled by the recent shootings by the police and of the police, but God said that we are to be still and know that He is God. We are to keep our minds and hearts stayed on Him. Church let's trust that He is working in the world through His word. Did you know that the difference between world and word is the l, when you take the light out of the world all you have left is the WORD. Trust and believe, everything you need right now is in the word of God.
