In the last days ....

HAVE you ever watched the news and thought, ‘Can things get any worse?’ There is so much tragedy and cruelty that some people believe we must be close to the end of the world. Is that true? Is there a way to know what will happen in the future? Yes. Although humans cannot predict what will happen, Jehovah God can. He tells us in the Bible about our future and the earth’s future.—Isaiah 46:10; James 4:14.

When we read in the Bible about the end of the world, it means, not the end of planet Earth, but the end of wickedness. Jesus taught people that the Kingdom of God would rule over the earth. (Luke 4:43) His disciples wanted to know when God’s Kingdom would come, and they asked Jesus: “When will these things be, and what will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?” (Matthew 24:3) Jesus did not give them the exact date, but he told them what would happen just before the end of this world. What Jesus said would happen is happening right now.

At 2 Timothy 3:1-5, the Bible says: “In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.” The apostle Paul described how many people would behave during the last days. He said people would  be selfish love money disobey their parents not be loyal lack affection for their family have no self-control be violent and aggressive love pleasures more than God pretend to love God but refuse to obey him 11. According to Psalm 92:7, what will happen to wicked people? 11 Do many people behave like this where you live? All over the world, many do. But God will soon do something about it. He promises: “When the wicked sprout like weeds and all the wrongdoers flourish, it is that they may be annihilated [or, destroyed] forever.”—Psalm 92:7.  GOOD NEWS IN THE LAST DAYS

    1. Meant to say more...

      I was praying not too long ago about war. You know, what if...what if there is a war. My young nephew joined the military recently. I was praying for him and for the people on the "other side." It's usually ...always...innocents who fight, kids stuffed into uniforms meant for the people who make the decision to go to war. They don't fight. They just decide. Anyway, as I was praying (really, fretting...) the Lord spoke to me. "I know who are Mine."

      He knows. Our and theirs, He knows....

      God bless you, Janice.
