ARE WE IN THE LAST DAYS?

What does the Bible say about the last days. Paul teaches Timothy in 2 Timothy chapter 3 about the last days.  “You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.  For people will love only themselves and their money.  They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful.  They will consider nothing sacred  They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control.  They will be cruel and hate what is good.  They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.  They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly.  Stay away from people like that!

2 Timothy 3:1-5

Paul’s reference to the “last days” reveals his sense of urgency.  The last days began after Jesus’ resurrection when the Holy Spirit came upon the believers at Pentecost.  The “last days” will continue until Christ’s second coming.  This means that we are living in the last days.  So we should make the most of the time that God has given us.
