Last Days (2) - Perilous Times (LG40)

2 Thess 2:3  Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

How will Christians fall away in the last days?

2 Tim 3:1-5  But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

From the above scriptures, end time Christians have been misled and have returned back to the old man, walking in the flesh and behaving worse like the heathens. These Christians though confess Jesus as Lord, pray, quote scriptures and testify His goodness (having a form of godliness) but will not put themselves to trust Him for healing, deliverance, provisions, protection, nourishment, etc. (denying its power).

Beware, for end time Christians are lovers of themselves, lovers of money, unloving, slanderers, despisers of good, traitors, etc.

With this type of people, do you expect them to give to God's work in charity and mission (the leftover crumbs possibly). Heathens give out of their conscience to feed the poor and needy.

Nowadays, most of the Christian charitable homes depend on the supports of heathens, for end time Christians have betrayed the Lord (traitors), because they are selfish and merciless, and giving excuses for not giving, thus hindering His work in the various ministries.

James 1:27  Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

Brethren, do not be conformed to the worldly and wicked ways of the end time Christians. Overcome this norm in the perilous times of the last days by your willingness, humility, faith and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 8:13-14  For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
