The Last Days or The End of Times
Have you ever wondered when is the Last Days, when will
it start and when is the date that it will end? So let’s
go over the when the Last Days is mentioned in the Bible.
When did the Last Days begin?
Hebrews 9:25-28 Nor yet that he should offer himself
often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every
year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered
since the foundation of the world: but now once
in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin
by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed
unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ
was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them
that look for him shall he appear the second time without
sin unto salvation.
Acts 2:15-17 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing
it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which
was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come
to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of
my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions,
and your old men shall dream dreams:
When we read these verses with The Last Days in mind, we
should see that the Last Days started when Jesus came to
die on the cross for our sins.
When will the Last Days End?
While we will
not know the exact time of His coming, (Mark 13: 32. But
of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels
which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.) God
obviously wanted us to know when that time was getting closer.
Let’s go over the verses that will give us clues to
the End of Times.
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also
the coming of the Son of man be.
In Noah's days there was violence, wickedness, and unbelief.
In Genesis 6:5 “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.”
So we can only imagine what it was like to live in their
time. The unbelief got so strong that in the end there were
only 8 people left. That would be Noah and his wife, their
3 sons and their wives was the only ones left to make it
out of there alive. God was so fed up with all of these
things that he just wanted to start over.
Today the percentage of born again Christians are decreasing
every year. Even in our Country which was a Bible believing
Country 234 years ago is now primarily filled with non-believers.
Our jails are so full that some crimes nowadays goes on
to be unpunished, and some people to be let out early for
their crimes. So the prophecy in this verse is being fulfilled
Luke 17:28-30 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot;
they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted,
they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom
it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed
them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son
of man is revealed.
In Lot's days there were gay lifestyles in the city Sodom.
So in the last days there will be an abundant of gay people.
There is big spot light on the gay movement today and companies
are contributing big sums of money to their cause. So the
gay lifestyle is just going to get bigger and bigger every
day. So we can clearly state that the prophecy in this verse
is being fulfilled at an alarming rate.
Daniel states in Daniel 12:4. But thou, O Daniel, shut up
the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end:
many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Now to me the term "to and fro" means that speed
in which you can get to one place to another will be increased.
Today a person can get on an airplane and fly just about
anywhere in the world in a day or so. As far as knowledge
is concerned, we can find anything we want to know about
on the internet and print off sometimes hundreds of pages
about one subject. Now I’m not saying that we will
be any smarter than we were years ago, but the knowledge
will be there if we choose to want it. So we can clearly
state that the prophecy in this verse has already been fulfilled.
