   Question: Are these the last days?


Answer: Today there has been an attempt to twist and present half-truths in order to discredit the Word of God. The Scriptures we teach comes from the doctrine of Christ.

The Word doctrine simply means: something that is taught, system of belief, principle accepted as authoritative.

For instance, the doctrine of Christ which is supported by the Life of Jesus Christ who was born unto a virgin Jewish woman named Mary. At the age of 30 years old, Jesus began his ministry of teaching and preaching for 3 ½ years. During this time period there were many miracles such as blinded eyes open, deaf ears open, lame people walking and the paralyzed receiving strength in their bodies. They crucified Jesus Christ on the cross and when he was dead, God the Father raised Him up from death. He was taken up in a cloud towards heaven with the witness of the Apostles and two Angels standing by in white apparel. He showed himself living by proofs of the nail prints in His hands, and a hole in His side where water and blood came out while he was nailed to the cross.

Jesus said; My doctrine or teaching is not my own. It comes from Him who sent me. If anyone chooses to do God’s will, he will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak of My own. John 7:16-18 (LSAB)

Most people believe there is a God. Simply stated Jesus is saying what I teach and do come directly from God in heaven. His Father in Heaven gave Him power which to operate in the earth realm. This power comes through the Holy Spirit.

In 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when people will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.

Other words the time will come when men will not want to adhere to sound doctrine but to appease their own desires, they’ll gather or put around themselves a multitude of teachers who will eagerly say what their ears want to hear.

With truth there are not any gray areas. For instance the DaVinci Code by Dan Brown is fiction. It makes up a story of Jesus being married to Mary Magdalene. In the canonize scriptures that one item of untruth isn’t found. The Bible states Mary Magdalene as the one whom Jesus cast out seven devils. Also she was with Mary the mother of James and Salome, who brought sweet spices to the tomb of Jesus very early in the morning so they could anoint Him.

The scriptures in its distinctiveness have constant references in Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic. For years people have tried to discredit revealed truth. Jesus said it this way; and you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. In its translation; from the Dead Sea Scrolls, these scriptures are practical in daily living yet God’s Holy Word is spiritual. There are gravitational laws called G Force, there are moral laws which govern our daily lives and spiritual laws.

For example our spirit is made up of communion with God, wisdom of God and conscience of God.

There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of God. Having a form of godliness but denying its power. Further the scripture says, have nothing to do with theses types of individuals. 2 Timothy 3:16 (LASB)

These are the signs of the last days. Just look around and see the evidence; actually if you just look around your own house. You don’t have to look far to see the last days approaching, they are already here.

Just pray and ask God to keep you from being deceived.

Our Father who dwells in Heaven, I ask you to keep me from being deceived in these last days. May I receive strength from heaven to keep on the straight and narrow road, while I’m here in this earth realm; blessed forever our Lord who rules and reigns in the affairs of men. May the Lord Jesus Christ continue to watch over me and my love ones with His loving kindness; Jesus is able to keep me from falling. Amen
