Signs That We Are in the End Times
We will know that we are in the end times when signs God has foretold become evident. Are we there now? When did the “end times” begin? Read the Word of God and come to your own conclusions. The signs are unmistakable and He has not hidden them from us.
In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 God reveals a glimpse of ungodly signs of the end times:
“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.”
Here we see nineteen signs, though many can be reduced to more general signs, like pride. Most of the signs we already see as we go about our daily lives, so what makes these signs evidence of the end? We should look for a dramatic increase in the frequency and severity of each.
In addition, Paul the Apostle also wrote in 2 Timothy 4:3-4:
“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.”
Continually read God’s Word, and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Remember Matthew 11:15, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
