Is Jesus coming soon? It may be hundreds of years from now. Or, it may be today. Honestly, I don’t know, but Jesus said no one would know. However, there would be signs. In my assessment, I see more than just signs but foundations laid. Paul describes these foundations in 2 Tim. 3:1-5, “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.”
Yes, history is filled with similar eras, but that’s why we don’t always know for sure. But, a simple reading of the news reveals that we see everything on this list en masse. What’s worse is that much of Paul’s list is not on headlines because they are so accepted. Scary? No, expected.
