Last Days (1) - Worldliness (LG39)

Luke 21:34-36   “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

This warning from our Lord Jesus Christ that in the last days the great danger to Christians will be accepting worldliness, which will trap them (with non believers) and they will definitely miss Rapture.

James 4:4   Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

The Lord warn us to 'Watch':-

  1. the end time signs so that our faith will be strengthened as each event is being fulfilled,
  2. warnings of heresies and sins that will be commonly or wrongly accepted/committed by end time Christians, and;

Pray that we will be enlightened and willing to humble ourselves before the Lord by trusting and obeying Him, His word and warnings, so that we will be able to overcome all these distractions, temptations, carnality, sins, wrong doings, wickedness, worldliness, etc.

Only then can we hope that the Lord will find us worthy to be caught up to Him at Rapture and to stand before Him.

What are the other last days sins?
