Whenever the topic of the ‘end times’ crops up, there seems to be a basic lack of understanding of when these times happen.
One of the most popular media questions has to do with asking, “Are we living in the end times?”
- WHAT ARE THE END TIMES, AND ARE WE LIVING IN THEM?
- Are We Living in the End Times? (VIDEO)
- Are We Living in the End Times?
AND there are DOZENS more media pieces with the same or similar headlines.
To provide a quick answer to that popular question:
YES, WE ARE.
What are the end times?
The end times are usually thought of as the time between the first visit of Jesus Christ to earth and his return.
So, by that accepted definition, we are DEFINITELY living in the end times.
There should be NO confusion on this point.
[This is a VERY elementary point in the discussion of end times events, but it is a very IMPORTANT one. After seeing ANOTHER media article posing the question, “Are we living in the end times?“, it was decided to present this short answer.]
God’s Word only tangentially addresses the timing of the last days.
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
DOES the reader believe we are living in the end times?
OR, does the reader believe that the “end times” is just more religious nonsense?
It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
