When Are The Last Days?

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...

And it shall come to pass in the last days, said God, I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: (Acts 2:17)

If anyone knew when the last days are it is the apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ. The men whose letters make up the New Testament. Also the Hebrew prophets knew it was days that were coming and they prophesied of them.

In the passage above Peter is preaching, quoting the Hebrew prophet Joel, the first sermon after the resurrection and ascension into heaven of Jesus. He is the apostle with the keys to the kingdom. Jesus gave them to him when he confessed that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God.

He knew and so did the others with him that the last days began then. So the last days have been going on for about 2000 years. And personally I believe not only are we living in the last days we are living in the eleventh hour and midnight is almost upon us when the Bridegroom comes.

So we know from this that the last days began from the first century AD  and continue to now. When Jesus was here on earth began the last days.

I have heard many skeptics say that nothing is new that all these things Jesus predicted have been happening right along. Yes all along the last two thousand years.

America is not even 300 years old? Yet in its short existence America has managed to so rebel against the laws of God that it is now home to hundreds of thousands of pythons?

God didn’t do this but people who do not think of consequences.

Earthquakes happening in frequency as never before which is another sign of the last days. Go check out the frequency of earthquakes now compared to a hundred years ago. No contest.

Jesus said that Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luke 21:26)

Fear is nothing but anxiety and stress. And anxiety and stress are the cause of heart attacks as well as obesity and hating others.

The world has never been more dangerous. This cannot be refuted.

We are living in the last days when the four horses of the Revelation of Jesus Christ  have been sent into the earth.

They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. (Luke 17:27)

I have heard people say that this what Jesus said has ben happening all along. It is nothing new.

Exactly! And Jesus knew that a thousand or two thousand years later they would still be doing what they have been doing since the dawn of creation; partying!

Are you getting ready for that day? That last day? And even if the Lord delays his coming for the next 75 years are you ready to die and meet God in peace with Christ within to stand for you before God?

It is something to consider. Make plans for your eternal future because you do have one.
