It's getting Biblical. I always poopooed the Book or Revelations; now I'm not so sure.
wars, rumour of wars;
earthquakes in diverse places;
signs in the sun, moon and stars;
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love,
unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of
Talk of peace and safety are a sign of the last days;
Love of God growing cold in most people; Breakdown of the family and children who are “disobedient to parents.”
Matthew 24:37-39 ...'But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. In the Last Days People Will be Without Natural
Affection; In the Last Days People Will be Despisers of Those That are Good; “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There
will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains” (Matthew 24:7-8;
You will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death” (Matthew 24:9). There has been an increase in the persecution of Christians, with Fox
News reporting that “nearly 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith in 2016 and that as many as 600 million were prevented from practicing
their faith through intimidation, forced conversions, bodily harm or even death.”
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of
devils. (1 Timothy 4:1); This would include "motivational" sermons instead of teaching how to know and accept Jesus into your life.
2 Peter 3:3 - 3 Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying,
“Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the
ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.';
and many, many more have been fulfilled. Yes, nothing to see here.....
