Are we Living in the End Times?
It is our firm belief that we are the last generation and that we are living in the end times. The last days are upon us and this short article will explain why we believe we are living in the end times. I pray that you would think about what you read here, compare it with the Word of God in the Bible and pray over it, because these are perilous times that we live in and we need to get ready for Christ Jesus.
"In the last scenes of this earth's history, war will rage. There will be pestilence, plague and famine. The waters of the deep will overflow their boundaries. Property and life will be destroyed by fire and flood." (E.White, Mar174, 1897)
This above quote was written in 1897. An inspired quote stating what the world would be like in the very last days of earth's history, just before the second coming of Jesus. Are we experiencing the "last scenes" today? Are all these things happening now in our time? Very much so!
WAR WILL RAGE - Just look at all the conflicts happening now all over the world.
PESTILENCE - Aids? Bird Flu? Tuberculosis? Malaria? Respiratory Infections? These alone count for tens of millions of deaths each year!
PLAGUE AND FAMINE - Just look at how much plague and famine has ravaged the third world countries, especially in Africa.
WATERS OF THE DEEP WILL OVERFLOW - New Orleans Flood? Indonesia Tsunami? Japan Tsunami?
PROPERTY AND LIFE DESTROYED BY FIRE - Just look at the wild fires we are getting around the world now!
"Some" of these things were happening back in 1897, but they are ALL happening now with great strength and frequency. But we don't need to just rely on this quote to know we are living in the end times. No, there are many more signs. Take a look at the many Bible signs of the end times and you will see without doubt that the signs given were specifically for our generation, showing that we are living in the last days just before the second coming of Christ.
There are many scoffers out there who say that these signs have been with us for hundreds of years and people all throughout history have been proclaiming that their time is the end times. We were warned about these scoffers in 2 Peter 3:3-4. Those who scoff at the idea that we are living in the last days say that the disasters we are seeing today are no worse than any time in history. This is a lie, as you only need look at the statistics to see that things are MUCH worse today. Just take a look at the stats for earthquakes on our Bible signs page and you will see the increase in earthquakes over the past ten years.
