We somehow think we really know something about ourselves but do we? Even more concerning is that we think we are capable to know the Lord, but we can't. Job thought he understood something until heaven broke it's silence and the Lord spoke to Job. Then he realized, as we must, that we stand before an all mighty God who knows the way.
Proverbs 30:11-14 " There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless their mother.
12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
13 There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up.
14 There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men."
In the last times – the times that we are living in now between Christ's first coming and second coming – there will be perilous and dangerous times. Scripture is very realistic, but there is still hope – even in this warning.
The natural human state is to look out for #1, and the rest of the list of bad things in this passage are just outworkings of that main sin of a distorted and perverted self-love. Our culture is puffed up with self-esteem and we are told to "believe in ourselves."
Pauls says to avoid these kind of people. We need to be watchful because hypocritical unbelievers will creep into the Church and they are almost more dangerous than outright pagans.
Do we understand and know the power of the Gospel? We need to be watchful against these false teachers, but we can also be encouraged because these people do not get the last word. The Lord Jesus has set up His Church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it!
Studies on the end times can be an exercise in speculation. The prospect of looking into a crystal ball is alluring. But eschatology driven by mere curiosity is a sure sign of spiritual disinterest. End-times theology is vital to the eternal state of our souls. "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil" (2 Cor. 5:10).
Studying the end times can be helpful if we ask the right kind of questions and listen to Scripture's answers with a firm resolve to obey. Not all Christians agree about the details of the last judgment. But Scripture's basic testimony is plain.
Another trend the Bible says will be present on the Earth we He returns is False Accusers. Is this something we see in our world today? Are things starting to align to make us aware of the lateness of the hour?
Now we get into the heart of it. Signs that the average person doesn't know about concerning the end times. It is a strange one and one that they are starting to push upon the world. The limiting of meat consumption!
Louie takes us through an overview of how the last days will playout, and he explains why we need to share the gospel today while we still have some peace!
1 Cor. 15:3-4, 1 John 5:13
