Surviving the Last Days #1 / Surviving the Last Days #2
Surviving the Last Days #1 – The Apostle Paul told us that “in the last days perilous times shall come.” You need to know what “perilous” actually means and the impact this can have on you. The defining characteristic of our age is the substitution of sex for love. Can you remember when aspirin and Alka Seltzer were the biggest medical advertisements on TV? Now its Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. Why? Paul said, “For men shall be lovers of their own selves.” Have men lost the power to love? Do we have an epidemic of impotence in this country?
Surviving the Last Days #2 – Keep in mind as you study the Bible that there is some ambiguity in the use of the expression “in the last days.” Perhaps God want us to be less dogmatic and more enquiring? Paul’s message in Part One showed we should struggle against the spirit of the age. Then Peter came with a message that scoffers, walking after their own lusts, would come in the Last Days questioning the promise that Christ will return. He tied this in with the Day of the Lord leaving a powerful admonition you need to understand.
