“THESE LAST DAYS”? – Part 3


THEN THE END WILL COME

Matthew 24:14  “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

15  “Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),

16  then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.

17  “Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house.

18  “Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak.

19  “But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!

20  “But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath.


FOR THEN, A GREAT TRIBULATION


21  “For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.

22  “Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.

23  “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him.

24  “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.

25  “Behold, I have told you in advance.

26  “So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them.

27  “For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.


THESE LAST DAYS


Hebrews 1:1 “God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, (v2) in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.”


THE LAST DAYS


Look in Acts 2:17  ‘AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,’ God says, ‘THAT I WILL POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT ON ALL MANKIND; AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS;


THESE LAST TIMES


1 Peter 1:18  “…knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, (v19) but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ. (v20)  For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you (v21)  who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.”


These words by Jesus, the Apostles Paul and Peter were spoken (and written) in the 1st century, AD.  So, it is easy to see, by these scriptural references, that The Last Days began in the 1st Century AD – and this is earth-shaking news.
