It’s without doubt how we are emerging into what will be the most perilous times. Times never seen on the history of the earth. We will see specifically why they are perilous, to have faith, and to overcome. It’s either have faith in perilous times, or fall away…
The Prophecy Of Paul—Last Days Wicked “Christians”
Wickedness is not new under the sun. There has always been wicked times in the world. However, the wickedness in the world is unique now, because of the overall working of lawlessness. Fallen angels interfering with men. The global deception. And specifically, “God’s people” departing from the faith, and wicked men claiming to belong to Christ.
The Apostle Paul warned about men in the last days who would come in, claiming to be followers of Christ. Many Christians erroneously think that Paul is talking about the “unsaved” but Paul is speaking to Timothy and giving counsel on how to oversee God’s people. It says,
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men (professing Christians) will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Tim. 3:1-5)
