The End Times Are Upon Us

end times...loading

Many folks, over the years, have posed the question, “Are we in the end times?”–or words very similar.

The SHORT answer is “Of course!”

That is because the END TIMES are the time period between when Jesus walked the earth THE FIRST TIME and when Jesus returns.

So, what those curious folks want to know is probably, “Are we in the LAST DAYS?”–which is that time period IMMEDIATELY BEFORE the return of Jesus Christ to earth.

Though the answer to this second question is the same as the answer to the first.

The LAST DAYS are what Jesus talked about when he was around the FIRST TIME.

“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.”
–Matthew 24:6

Okay, ‘wars and rumours of war.’

CHECK.

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”
–Matthew 24:7

‘…Famines, and pestilences (diseases), and earthquakes in diverse (many different) places.’

CHECK.

BUT, Jesus did NOT say that these signs would be all that His followers would see.

“All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
–Matthew 24:8

Jesus warned His followers that any who were alive when He returned would be SORELY tried.

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”
–Matthew 24:9-10

Jesus ALSO warned of the general condition of man before He next arrived, along with some other things to watch for AND a promise.

“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
–Matthew 24:11-13

All of that appears to be occurring NOW.

In Matthew 24, Jesus gave ONE MORE SIGN of the last days.

“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.”
–Matthew 24:14

THAT is coming to pass shortly. In fact, the reader will likely be a witness to it.

So, to answer that question “Are we in the end times?”

AGAIN, the correct answer is “Of course!”

God’s Word contains the TRUTH of what will occur.

God’s Word is the ONLY truth for the times in which we now live.

In case the reader was wondering…

DOES the reader believe God’s Word?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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?

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.”
-–Romans 1:16
