No, this post isn’t about a pandemic or economic collapse or an EMP. All those things would be devastating, but if they happen, they are still in the future. But what about if you could see and identify without a shadow of doubt, that the end is here?
The Bible makes it pretty plain. Paul, writing to Timothy, says how people will “be” in the last days. The Scripture is found in 2 Timothy 3. After reading the passage, listen to Francis Chan discuss how this is happening right in front of our eyes.
Could you be one of the people that Paul discusses? You don’t have to be. God has something great for you…BUT, it’s not really ALL ABOUT YOU!
But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, without love for what is good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people!
6 For among them are those who worm their way into households and capture idle women burdened down with sins, led along by a variety of passions, 7 always learning and never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so these also resist the truth, men who are corrupt in mind, worthless in regard to the faith. 9 But they will not make further progress, for their lack of understanding will be clear to all, as theirs was also.
2 Timothy 3:1-9 (HCSB)
