If, you have clicked on this article I can assume you must be wondering "are we truly living in the end times?".
After reading this article there should be not doubt in your mind that we are living in the end times.
It is written in Isaiah 46:9-10
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Here is an inexhaustive list of end times prophecies recently fulfilled
1. Running to and fro and knowledge increased
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
For the longest period the fastest method of travel for humans was by horseback. It was only until recently we have had such a rapid advancement in technology to allow us to achieve such great feats as creating the automobile etc.
This verse also says that knowledge will increase, which thanks to the computer knowledge is increasing at an unbelievable rate.
2. Perilous times would come
2 Timothy 3:1
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
This prophecy is accurately fulfilled in modern times. Here are a few examples
-it is estimated that around 187 Million people were killed in wars in the 20th Century.
- 3.1 Million children are dying of starvation every year and nobody cares.
-very rapid increase in rates of divorce and unfaithful spouses show that few people today have any sort of love.
3. There shall come false money greedy prophets
2 Peter 2:1-3
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
The bible says there will come false prophets seeking your money. Many prosperity gospel preachers like Joel Osteen hoard a large sum of money to themselves and do not care to support to poor.
4. There will come Scoffers which will mock Jesus' 2nd coming
2 Peter 3:3-4
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5. A one world monetary and currency system would be possible
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
This is an unbelievable prophecy considering in the Apostle John's days such a thing would not even be possible.
6. Egypt would exist in the last days. But, with much less power that it had previously
And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt, and will cause them to return into the land of Pathros, into the land of their habitation; and they shall be there a base kingdom. It shall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither shall it exalt itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them, that they shall no more rule over the nations.
Today Egypt is a third world country. The bible foretold the destruction of many groups of people and kingdoms, yet Egypt remains!
7. An increase of earthquakes in diverse places
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Earthquakes have become stronger and more common in recent years. Source
8. Men will be lovers of themselves
2 Timothy 3:2-5
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
These verses very accurately describe the selfish "me, me, me" state of mind that corrupt man has today. Self love, esteem, reliance and many other selfish ideologies are widely taught in schools, media and psychology.
9. People in the last days would increase in learning, but never able to accept the truth
2 Timothy 3:6
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
With todays technology it is extremely easy for people to increase their knowledge, yet there are more scoffers than ever.
10. Many Christians would depart from the faith
2 Thessalonians 2:3
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
As research shows many Christians are departing from the faith and becoming Atheists. Source
The only reason Christianity is remaining a strong religion is because christians have much higher fertility rates than non believers.
