2 Timothy 3:1
This know also, that in the last days perilous times
Certainly, after all the events that have transpired
over the last month all over the world, many are
wondering what the world is coming to.
Look how the Apostle John
felt about the days that he was living in:
1 John 2:15-18
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the
world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father
is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust
of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of
life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And
the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he
that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little
children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that
antichrist shall come, even now are there many
antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
And doubtless, there were
many times in history when the world was in peril with
many signs and wonders happening. Peter said, in so
many words, that when the end is near, people will
dismiss the thought of the end times because since the
beginning of time it hasnít happened, so why should it
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.
But Peter continues:
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some
men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward,
not willing that any should perish, but that all should
come to repentance.
So what does Jesus say
about all of this? WATCH!
Watch therefore: for ye know not
what hour your Lord doth come.
Heaven and earth shall pass away:
but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and
that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are
in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye
heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who
left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and
to every man his work, and commanded the porter to
watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the
master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or
at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming
suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I
say unto all, Watch.
And take heed to yourselves, lest
at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting,
and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day
come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on
all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be
accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall
come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
