Does this sound like the world today? It sure seems like we are in the last days.?

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NKJV) But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.

    Yes&many'll b gulible but some'll b wise-46+yrs I'v studied the whole Bible-parts many times(word Rapture isnt Biblical-2nd Coming=ONLY 1 event. Ppl CONFUSE TRUTH-offends many/HATE-impose human limits/labels 2 God's power=dumb limits. God of Israel declared end 4rm start(best if ud pay closer attention 2 Jesus' directions 2 see signs or it'll b better if u werent born-@the end ppl'll b frantic sorting thru doc/Bible trying 2 figure it out). Even now a star appears in the East.

    Bible says dont panic(MUST take place-Mt 24/Mk 13/Lk 21/2Ths2)-stay alert(by Jesus' Biblical directions)but No1 knows day/hr except God-Mk13:32-33. Anti-Christ(in the world)deceives ppl who dont follow Jesus' directions-2Tm3:1-5.

    Bible severely warns dont trust humans=u, clergy/churches, scholars/scientists, TV(Jr 10:2-5,23/Is 2:22/Job 12:11/Prv 14:12/Acts 17:11)-Carefully think over what I say. Dont just believe/ignore what I write-might save u from getting in2 god[generic]less religions=poisoned trees/fruits. Who knows more about a house-the Builder/ppl moving in later?

    ET Events:

    1~Ppl claiming last-day dates/signs/it wont/already happened greatly increase.

    2~Ecc12:12 Many more books r made than all of history. Dan 12:4-knowlg increases(By WWW more knowlg is had in 1 nano-2nd than in all of history). When my granddad was young he lived mostly as ppl lived 4 1000s of yrs-wood fires/oil lamps/horses. B4 dying he saw rockets go 2 moon-most new things used 2day began in his lifetime-bridge gen 2 real end-times.

    3~Dan 12:4 Many shall run 2/fro-in less than 1 day we travel magnitudes more than all history b4 jets.

    4~3000yrs ago King Solomon-called wisest human ever(still true 2day)-said u cant create(add 2)/destroy what God made(Ecc3:14)-proved in 1800s=nothing is 2 b added/omitted 4rm Rv/Bible truth standing 4ever unchanged-Jn3:12.

    5~Men's hearts will fail them-1950s heart problems greatly increased. Even if doctors repair heart problems-prophecy fulfilled.

    6~2400 yrs ago: Zech14:12 Man's eyes/tongues will rot while still on their feet(didnt happen until 1945 atomic bombs in Japan-1rst time we hv way 2 destroy all mankind).

    7~In 1800s found light(wireless telegraph)can b used 2 comm(not just simple signal/mirror reflection apps)-no accident Light/Word of God r 2gether in Jn1:1-5-2day we network 24/7 by light/web more than all of history-Bible often links light/voice/words. W/o WWW its impossible 2 instantly message the world-this Gospel shall b known thru out world-now a reality.

    8~Ppl see 2 witnesses in streets(impossible b4 TV cameras-WWW instantly broadcasts 2 whole world).

    9~Wars&rumors of/earthquakes greatly increase(God knew there'd b global warming/man would detect/report many more things 2 world)-only start of birth pangs but 1 paying right att will know whats been sealed 4 1000s of yrs in Bible-Jr23:20.

    10~God's/Jesus' names r household words(in good&bad ways)-true 2day.

    11~Calling good evil&evil good greatly increase.

    12~There'll b a global gov/economy.

    13~Biblical abominations accepted/increase as normal/good(like gays-UN put 1 more nail in world's coffin-proph fulfilled&using Christian label 2 approve same=false teacher-will receive greatest punishment).

    14~Ppl seek false prophets/teachers appealing 2 what they like/feels good greatly increase but few seek our real God thru His Son=Door-Jn10:9.

    15~Some churches got rid of some Catholic nonsense but didnt find Jesus(skipped Biblical directions b/c of agendas=huge mistake-fulfilling proph against practices[Amos 8:11/Jr 12:10/Is 5:9 {large houses=churches-Mt 24:1-2}]/Hos 4:6/Mk 7:1-23{Jn 3:3,5/Ez 36:24-27,26}/Lk16:15/Rv 21:27/Jr 10:2-5/Is 1:11-15).

    16~Ppl hv more skin prob/seasons overlap.

    Much worse is coming. Dont b deceived-true believers'LL B HERE part of tribulation(no point 2 many end-time details unless we'r here). Judgment of all(even if universe was wall2wall ppl)happens in split 2nd(all stand b4 throne@same time/then ur life flashes b4 u=no long lines 4 judgment).

    Religion doesnt=the truth/r built on ideas man likes/seen as good 2 control masses/agendas-cant teach much on God=CANT ALL B RIGHT(only 1 Bible-why so many interps? 2Pt1:19-21=cant teach what u dont know).

    Jesus couldnt do whats in NT w/o fully knowing OT(impossible w/o God/NT didnt exist yet)/Apostles couldnt write NT w/o Jesus hving them remember all He did-Lk24:25-27,45.

    In history only Jesus said no1 can know God w/o Him(Jn 14:6/5:39/10:1,7/Acts4:11)=the truth=all new teaching/other beliefs r false/godless or Jesus is 1 more false prophet 2 ignore. God hates us b/c of sin-why He sent Jesus. Eternal hope is only in Jesus if u trust in Him/His Bible.

    Are modern times more like this than - for example - the time of Jesus, when most of the World was pagan and the Roman Empire actively suppressed newborn Christianity?

    Or the following 3 centuries, with much the same thing, before the persecution of Christians by Roman officials was outlawed in the Roman Empire?

    What about during the long centuries between the time of Jesus and the time that the Americas were Christianized - mostly by force? Were those centuries so very much better than our present time in the ways specified in that Bible passage?

    "The World today" seems "fallen from morality" to modern eyes who look back and see the past idyllically - as if it were The Waltons or Little House on the Prairie. And make no mistake: in many ways, it has fallen in morality.

    But when we compare things to the time Jesus walked the Earth, we can say honestly and confidently, "Wow...morally, things sure are a ***whole*** lot better now - throughout the whole World - than they were then, despite the many moral faults of our society and civilization."

    The time that Paul foretold is a time morally worse even than his own time - far worse than our time. It does not sound like the World today when we realize that Paul was predicting a moral situation considerably worse that that which existed in his **own** time. We still have quite a way to go before - morally - things are even equally bad to that time! We have not surpassed Roman society in moral decay!

    The Age is winding down, so we can realistically say that we're in "the end times," but we cannot say that it's the "end of the world." Yeah, I've read those Biblical verses. The Srimad Bhagavatam also made many prophecies regarding the end times ... the politicos keep telling us, "There is no cause for alarm! Please remain calm! Everything is going to be alright! The economy is on an upswing!" ... and like the idiots we are, we believe them. The reality is this: Every day, 192,000 people are born, and 155,000 people pass away. That means the planet is gaining 37,000 people a day. That means that even though people, out of pure need, believe in freedom, the reality is that there is less and less of it as time passes, and less and less of it as the population increases. Isaac Asimov talked about this during an interview ...

    The Epistles to Timothy are attributed to the apostle Paul, who expected Christ's return in his own lifetime. People have been seeing their own time as the "last days" for 2000 years - or more, really, as apocalypse cults were a thing even before the time of Christ. I believe our generation is nothing special, things will get a lot worse before we wake up to be judged.

    Harpazo = Rapture

    END-TIME BIBLE PROPHECY

    The Messiah Lord Jesus said BIRTH PANGS would signal the time of the end (Matthew 24:8). There are NINE birth pangs, they are all PRE-TRIBULATIONAL and the 1st three already occurred.

    The first birth pang was worldwide conflict coupled with famines and earthquakes (Matthew 24:7-8). Worldwide conflict was fulfilled in 1914-1918, major famines happened in 1918-1921 and most of the world’s major earthquakes began to occur since 1900.

    The second birth pang was the restoration of a Jewish State (Ezekiel 20:33-38; Ezekiel 22:17-22; Ezekiel 36:22-24; Zephaniah 2:1-2). This was fulfilled in 1948.

    The third birth pang was Jewish control of the Old City of Jerusalem (Revelation 11:1-2). For the third Jewish Temple (Tribulation Temple) to be rebuilt, Jerusalem needs to be under Jewish control and this was accomplished in the Six Day War in 1967.

    The fourth birth pang will be the Ezekiel 38 war. Russia, allied states of Iran, Ethiopia, Somalia, Germany and Armenia will invade Israel. God will miraculously destroy the invading army by earthquake, civil war among the invading soldiers, pestilence, blood, flood, hailstones, fire and brimstone. This will bring a revival in Israel where many Jews will turn to the Lord, and Israel will spend 7 years and 7 months burying the bodies and burning for fuel the military equipment left behind (Ezekiel 39:9-16).

    The 5th birth pang will be the development of a one world government (Daniel 7:23-24).

    The 6th birth pang will be the splitting of the one world government into 10 kingdoms and this Ten Kingdom Stage will continue until mid-Tribulation (Daniel 7:24).

    The 7th birth pang will be the revelation of the Antichrist (II Thessalonians 2:1-3; Daniel 7:24).

    The 8th birth pang will be a period of peace and false security that will be shattered by the Tribulation (1 Thessalonians 5:1-3).

    The 9th and final birth pang before the Tribulation is the signing of the 7-year covenant between Israel and the Antichrist. THIS EVENT IS WHAT BEGINS THE (7-year) TRIBULATION - NOT THE RAPTURE!

    The Rapture of the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) is also a pre-tribulational event (Luke 21:34-37; 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-10; Revelation 3:10; Revelation 19:6-8). The fact that the Church is not mentioned in any of the Tribulation Scriptures proves the Rapture is pre-tribulational. All raptured Christians will receive glorified bodies (Romans 8:22-23; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54)) and it can happen at any second.

    THE FIRST HALF OF THE TRIBULATION (SUPPORTING VERSES IN REVELATION 6-9 AND 17)

    The Ministry of 144,000 sealed Jewish believers will bring many throughout the world to accept Christ.

    There will be a powerful Ministry of Two Witnesses who will also be anointed Jewish believers.

    A one world religious system (Babylon the Harlot) will rule. Under this one world religious system, many who are saved during the Tribulation will suffer persecution and death.

    The Political system of the 10 kings of the one world government will continue.

    During the first half of the Tribulation there will also be war, worldwide famine, death (1/4 of the world’s population will die), a huge earthquake, a blackout and a meteor shower. 1/3 of earth’s dry surface will be destroyed, 1/3 sea life and salt water will be destroyed, a fallen angel called Wormwood will make 1/3 of earth’s fresh water bitter, 1/3 of earth’s natural light sources will be destroyed, there will be another blackout and demons in the form of “locust-scorpions” will come up out of the abyss led by Abaddon their king and they will inflict harm and pain for five months upon those who are not sealed by God (unbelievers). Another demonic invasion will occur and the demons involved will be led by four fallen angels who will be released from the Euphrates River and this army will kill 1/3 of the earth’s population.

    MID-TRIBULATION (SUPPORTING VERSES IN REVELATION 10-14 AND 17)

    The Antichrist will war against the 10 kings, and during the war the Antichrist will be killed.

    Satan will be cast out of the atmospheric heavens onto earth and will resurrect the Antichrist.

    The Antichrist will kill 3 kings (the kings of Syria, Egypt and Mesopotamia) and the 7 other kings will submit to him.

    The Antichrist will kill the Two Witnesses in Jerusalem and the wicked people will celebrate this event. Three and a half days afterwards, God will resurrect the Two Witnesses and take them up to Heaven and the people who celebrated will become terrified. The city of Jerusalem where the murder of the Two Witnesses occurred will then suffer an earthquake which will kill 7,000 people.

    The False Prophet will receive from Satan the power to perform great miracles and will deceive many. The False Prophet will command all people to worship the Antichrist and have persons create an image to the Antichrist. The False Prophet will use his satanic powers to give it life and the ability to speak. The False Prophet will cause those who refuse to worship the Antichrist and the image to be killed.

    The False Prophet will issue his own counterfeit seal known as the Mark of the Beast and it will be placed on all those who surrender to the Antichrist’s authority and accept him as god. Those who refuse to take this mark will not be able to buy or sell. Those who take this mark will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire.

    The Antichrist will break the seven-year covenant he made with Israel, cause the sacrifices to stop, sit in the Jewish Temple, declare to the world that he is really God and set up an idol called the Abomination of Desolation in the Temple (Daniel 9:27; Daniel 12:11; Matthew 24:15-16; 11Thessalonians 2:3-4; Revelation 13:11-15).

    Through the Antichrist and the False Prophet, Satan will attempt to destroy the Jews once and for all but he will fail because 1/3 of the Jews will succeed in fleeing into the wilderness. These Jews who escape will accept the Lord Jesus as their Saviour during the Tribulation (Zechariah 13:7-9) and while they are in hiding, God will miraculously provide for them (Zechariah 13:8-9; Isaiah 41:17-20). Divine intervention will also destroy the pursuing army.

    THE SECOND HALF OF THE TRIBULATION (SUPPORTING VERSES FOUND IN REVELATION 15, 16, 18, 19, 20)

    In the second half of the Tribulation, those with the Mark of the Beast will suffer skin sores, the remainder of sea water and fresh water will be destroyed, the sun will cause terrible burns and the wicked will blaspheme God. There will be yet another blackout and persons will suffer gnawing pains.

    Babylon will be the center of world economy and political system but Babylon will be swiftly destroyed by fire and become uninhabitable for man.

    The Antichrist will locate the Jews who sought refuge in the wilderness and surround them with his armies to wipe them out. The Lord Jesus will then descend from Heaven with His angels and Saints. He will come with great glory riding upon a horse and will destroy the Antichrist, the False Prophet and all of their armies. After this, a loud voice will cry out “It is done!” followed by the greatest earthquake in the earth’s history and hail weighing 120 pounds will fall.

    At the end of the Tribulation, there will be another blackout, the stars will fall from the sky and the heavenly bodies will be shaken (Matthew 24:29), the Antichrist and the False Prophet will be thrown into the eternal Lake of Fire and Satan will be cast into the Abyss and bound for 1,000 years.

    THE MILLENNIUM

    The Lord Jesus will reign over the entire earth during the Millennium. The Jewish and Gentile believers who survive the Tribulation will go on to populate the Millennium. Believers who died before and during the Tribulation and believers who were raptured will be present on earth during the Millennium and because they will have glorified bodies they will not reproduce. All believers will be given special tasks by the Lord Jesus (Revelation 20:4-6). There will be no wars (Isaiah 2:2-4), animals will return to the Edenic state and become vegetarians (Isaiah 11:6-9), people will not labour in vain but eat what they plant and inhabit what they build, there will be renovations in the heavens and earth and there will be righteous and unrighteous children born during the Millennium (Isaiah 65:17-25).

    At the end of the Millennium, Satan will be loosed from the Abyss and will deceive and gather the unrighteous for a war against the righteous. This will be his final attempt to destroy the righteous and when the unrighteous of the Millennium surround the good people, God will send fire down from Heaven which will suddenly and massively annihilate all of the wicked people. Satan will then be cast into the Lake of Fire where he will remain in torment for eternity (Revelation 20:7-10).

    THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT

    The Great White Throne Judgment will be the next main event. The old heavens and earth will be done away with and all will stand before God’s throne to be judged (Revelation 20:11-12). Those whose names are not found written in the Book of Life will be cast into the Lake of Fire which will be their final and eternal abode (Revelation 20:14-15).

    THE ETERNAL ORDER (REVELATION 21 AND 22)

    Those whose names are found in the Book of Life will enjoy paradise with God forever. The heavens and earth will be made new and the New Jerusalem will come down upon the earth making the earth like Heaven. All curses from the fall will be removed and the earth will be inhabited by the Triune God (The Father, Son and Holy Spirit), all angels and all of the righteous. The seas, moon, night and sun will be done away with and the glory of God will illuminate the earth. The River of Life will flow from God’s throne, the Tree of Life will bear health-giving fruits and leaves and the name of Jesus will be on the foreheads of all of the righteous.
