The Bible Is Essential In These Last Days 2 Peter 1:19-21
Bible prophets agree perfectly in their prophecies that time just before the return of Christ.
Compare Enoch’s prophecy of Christ’s second coming (Jude 14,15)
… with that made by Isaiah (Is. 13:3-5)
… with that made by Christ (Mt. 24:30)
… with that made by Paul (2 Th. 1:7-9)
… with that made by John (Re. 19:11-21).
Though separated by centuries, these prophecies agree perfectly.
Fulfilled prophecy proves the Bible to be the Word of God!
Bible has over 50 descriptions about the people at the time of the end; before Jesus returns!
These accurately describe, NOT the people of 100 years from now, but people living today!
Here are ten:
People would be departing from the faith … some will go into Satan worship.1 Tim 4:1
People would be mocking those that believe and declare that these are the last days. 2 Peter 3:3; Jude 18.
People would be lovers of themselves. 2 Tim 3:1,2.
The Predicted Mentality Of The Last Days “… they received not the love of the truth”
Clearly, when a person stands for nothing, he will fall for anything! In the minds of most Americans (including religious denominations), the biggest problem about the agenda of born again Christians is our insistence on an absolute adherence to scriptural truth. The prevalent mentality is that the persistence to Bible truth divides, but “love” unifies!
The sentimental “love” being promoted in the name of unity today is not love at all! God’s love rejoices in the truth (1 Cor 13:6). The concept of love popularly advocated is not genuine Christian love at all — it is simply tolerance mistaken for love … a counterfeit love, the perfect complement to“…another Jesus … another spirit … another gospel ” (2 Cor 11:4) that possesses the mentality of most in these last days, even professing Christians!. This bogus love is leading to an unscriptural unity — a unity that will finally be realized when the antichrist and his false prophet come on the world scene. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (2 Thess 2:8-10)
People would be disobeying their parents. 2 Tim 3:1,2
People would be generally ungrateful. 2 Tim 3:1,2
Homosexuality would increase. Lk 17:28,30; Gen 19:5; Ro 1:24,26,27
People would be without sexual self-control. 2 Tim 3:1,2,6; Rev 9:21, Lk 17:28,30; Jude 7
This is the so-called great sexual generation! Result: sexually transmitted diseases and millions of unwanted babies. The millions are summarily slaughtered … 1 million every year! 3,000 babies meet a horrible death every day in this country. Since Roe vs. Wade (1973), 45 million babies have been slaughtered … amounting to one sixth of the entire USA population.
People would love pleasures more than God. 2 Tim 3:1,2,4.
“Shall we go on a picnic, watch football, or sleep in on Sunday mornings?” “Oh, go to a Bible-preaching Church? You must be kidding!”
Our American motto “In God we trust” has become a joke!
People would be taking drugs. Rev 9:21 The Greek word for“sorceries” is actually pharmaceuticals or illicit drugs.
People would have reprobate minds. Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.
In their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. Example: Last Days “Border Security” ? I want our government to safeguard our cities from being vaporized by terrorists with nuclear weapons. I want our government to safeguard our economy from being bankrupt by those who are here in violation to our Laws. The United States Government exists constitutionally to protect the nation’s citizens. That protection is now suspect because of the government’s refusal to enforce the Law! I don’t understand it … except it be a reprobate mind as described for the last days.
I believe that the vast majority of leadership in Washington, DC have a collective “death wish” because of their reprobate minds … it must be satanic! New evidence of reprobate minds is exposed everyday in the morning and nightly news broadcasts.
Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
These descriptions predicted centuries ago point the the fact that we are at the time of the end.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work (2 The 2:7)
