The Last Days: What is Going On? – Key Points
When we look at the last days and the latter times, the Bible says that the Spirit speaks expressly, or clarity that the Holy Ghost gives. Expressly means outspokenly or distinctly. The Bible speaks distinctly concerning what is going on now, and what is to come.
2 Tim. 3:1 says, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” Perilous times are times when wickedness is unleashed on earth and times of trouble like you have not seen or experienced. There are so many things in life we bring on ourselves. For instance, the perilous times would not have to come if men forsook their sinful ways and iniquity, and repented. Perilous times come because (for) men become lovers of their own selves. 2 Tim. 3:2-3 says, “2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection…” God is intentional in the order of these characteristics as there is a downward progression.
We can’t change whether it is the last days or latter times, but we have a say in whether or not the last days are perilous. We have the ability to stop the devil from making the perilous times more perilous. 2 Thess. 2:7-8 says, “7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 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:” The word “letteth” in 2 Thess. 2:7 means prevent. The church is preventing the devil from being able to do whatever he wants to do in the world right now.
In order to avoid going down the downward progression that 2 Timothy 3:2-5 lists, we must put God first. Don’t create your priorities and then put God in the back; instead love God first! Our prayer to God should be: I NEVER want to be even a little bit off or LESS than what You require of me. It is important to love God more than pleasures and never one time do you want to be less than what God is calling you to be.
