“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. And from such people turn away!” (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
Yes people, we are living in the last days. Therefore, there are things starting to happen everywhere to wake up not only those of this world, but we as a church as well. For we see false teachers and those who are claiming to be Jesus Christ. Also, we’re seeing devastation all across the world. For Jesus said: “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” (Luke 21:11 NKJV) This is true brothers and sisters in Christ. Look at the volcanic eruptions that are taking place, the massive floodings that are occurring as well as the extreme summer heatwaves and devastating winters. And let’s not forget the gross sins that are taking place today around the world. For we see the rising up of the LGBTQ+ community (what’s interesting is that we’re not seeing an inclusion of the letter “S” for those who are Strait), as well as the spike in crimes being committed in our cities.
However, for us who are in Christ, we should already know this. For God’s word clearly says that these things will come to pass before our Savior’s return.
But that being said, do we as Christians really believe this from our hearts? I say this because there are so many who profess Christ as their Savior and yet are so caught up in this world’s nonsense. For there are sports events to attend, unbiblical movies to watch, Godless video games to play and the list goes on and on. My brothers and sisters in Christ, what are we doing? Shouldn’t we be more concerned with those lost souls who don’t know Christ? For it’s our job to share the love of Jesus with those of this world. For the first word’s that came out of our Savior’s mouth after being baptized and tested was: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 4:17)
Now, let’s take heed to what Jesus said to us Christians. First, we read that we must beware: "See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains." (Matthew 24:4-8 ESV) Next, we read what they are going to do to us. "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:4-14 ESV)
Wow, we read that we who are in Christ will be even put to death. However, we also read that the gospel is going to be proclaimed throughout the whole world. And the only way it can be proclaimed is through us who are Christ’s disciples. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” (Romans 10:13-15) So, just as God our Father sent his Son Jesus Christ to proclaim the gospel (good news) to us, we are now to do the same. For we being his disciple are called to do this. So, let's start preaching brothers and sisters in Christ. Amen.
So, my fellow Christians, let’s also take note to the warning that Jesus gave us who believe: “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (Luke 21:34-36 ESV) Yes, let’s always be watchful and ready for our Lord’s return so that we can be counted worthy to enter into his Kingdom. Amen.
God bless you as you seek to do his will. Amen.
