How to Live in the End Times

Over the last few years I have been amazed at how clear and complete End Time Bible prophesy has been fulfilled. It also seems that over the last few months there has been a sprint toward the finish line taking place. We have seen nationality against nationality, what seems to be a push toward an effort to put the final touches on a cashless society (check out www.pymnts.com ), lawlessness at unprecedented levels, disease that has caused a worldwide pandemic and with that a great falling away of and from the church.

If it seems that the world is spiraling out of control that may be because it is. It has never been under the control of mankind but always under the watchful eye and control of the Lord. He knew from the beginning what would take place and how this would play out. The real question is not what is happening but rather how are we called to deal with it as Christians? How should we react to the lawlessness, deprivation of righteousness, and the lack of natural love in our world and society? The real question is that knowing these are the last days and all that we see will someday and maybe soon be dissolved how should we live? That is question I hope to answer in my sermon this week. As for now just let me say that we cannot live with a love for this world and the things in it and still have the love for God and the kingdom to come at the same time. If you love the world the love of God is not in you. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.

“If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” 1 John 2:15-17 (KJV)
