  1. 1. ==== ====The Truth About The Last Days, Antichrist, The Rapture, More. ====Most people who look at the signs of the end times tend to focus on Matthew 24 where Jesusgives a number of signs for the end. Now the problem with only focusing on this chapter is the factthat the signs given in Matthew 24 have been happening for a long time. Ok, the intensity andfrequency of the signs are increasing, there is no doubt about that. But taken on their own, thescoffers will just continue to ridicule the signs, saying that these things have been happening forthousands of years. And in a way they are right.Another problem arises when certain Christians proclaim dates for the second coming, like HaroldCamping proclaiming that the "rapture" (which in itself is a false teaching) will happen on May 21st2011. These kind of people and false predictions just add fuel to the fire for the scoffers.By the way, the Bible prophesied that there would be scoffers in the last days in 2 Peter 3:3,saying "where is the promise of His (Jesus) coming?" So we can expect there to be scoffers nomatter what we say and show them.So with these things in mind, in this article I am going to concentrate on another passage ofscripture that give us signs that we are living in the end times. And that passage is found in 2Timothy 3:1-5.2 Timothy 3:1-5....This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall belovers 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 loversof God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.As you can see it says that in the last days perilous times shall come. Are we living in periloustimes? Natural disasters, wars, crime, economic trouble, animals dying, wildfires, extremeweather, terrorism. I think these signs show we are certainly living in perilous times.How about the rest of the scripture above? The signs given for the last days are; men shall belovers of themselves, covetous, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient, unthankful, unholy,without natural affection (homosexual), fierce, despisers of those who are good, lovers of pleasuremore than God, and having a form of Godliness only, but not living Godly lives.We are now living in an age where ALL of these signs are being fulfilled. Go back just 50 yearsand many of these end time signs in 2 Timothy would NOT have been fulfilled, because peopleback then were much more respectful and didnt have such a wicked attitude as described in theabove Bible verses. Now something that interests me about these signs is that many of them haveeven entered the churches! Just look at the number of churches now accepting active homosexual
  2. 2. people, and even in leadership positions. And I would say that the majority of professing Christiansare now "lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God". We are certainly living in a time of earthshistory like no other before.Now if you put these end time signs from 2 Timothy together with the signs from Matthew 24, thenwe have real tangible evidence that we are living in the end times. But will people see this? Sadly,many people wont, because they are too caught up in this world, enjoying life to be botheredabout it. And the Bible prophesied that people would be like this in the end times in Matthew24:37-39, where it says that as in the days of Noah, so will the coming of Jesus be. People willcarry on eating, drinking, marrying, etc. In other words, they will carry on with life as normal andnot prepare for the second coming, just as the world did not prepare for the flood.So it is my firm belief that if you look at ALL the signs of the end times from the Bible and not justthe signs from Matthew 24, then you will see that our generation is living in the last days of earthshistory. So lets not just say "oh there are more earthquakes now, we must be living in the endtimes". Instead, lets put all the end time signs together and show the world we are a generationlike no other before.Mark WBible Student and Website ownerEngland Source: ====The Truth About The Last Days, Antichrist, The Rapture, More. ====
