LAWLESENESS and MORAL decline :
SIGNS POINTING TO THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST .....Signs spoken of
by Jesus Christ Himself , 2000 years ago :
Jesus Christ said ..........
MATHEW 24:3 As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him
privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will
be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?”
... MATHEW 24:4 And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray.
MATHEW 21:12b Jesus Christ said.........."lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold."
The words spoken here by Jesus Christ to His disciples , 2000 years ago
, after they had requested of Him the time of His Second Coming and
what should be expected to be happening on the Earth prior to His
arrival , were to be a sign for those who witness these future events
that would precede His Second Coming to planet Earth .
stated that there would be an increase , in the world , of lawlesness
and a moral decline with people growing cold towards one another with
relation to human relationships and actions .
The warning of
Jesus Christ , concerning this worldwide moral decline which would be a
sign of His Second Coming , were also echoed by The Apostle Paul :
2 Timothy 3:1-5 But understand this, that in the last days there will
come times of difficulty. 2For people will be lovers of self, lovers of
money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents,
ungrateful, unholy, 3heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without
self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4treacherous, reckless, swollen
with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5having the
appearance of godliness, but denying its power.
How well and true these words can be applied to the world we live in . A
world indeed which on every level of human actions and living , clearly
resemble a world that mirrors the kind of world that Jesus Christ said
would be in existence at the end of the age and one which His Second
Coming would fit into extremely well .
Are we witnessing the
very words of Jesus Christ and The Apostle Paul , spoken two thousand
years ago , being fulfilled in our time ?
