The Last Days are here, prepare for the end of the world.

Are you prepared for the end of the world, for the last days? For some reason people feel that they still have a whole lifetime or two to live and enjoy their new houses, new cars, new play things and vacations. Which I am all for them, but when that is all we focus on, then it is bad, because these are the last days before the end will come, and how will we spend these last days is what counts.

Why do I think these are the last days? Are you not sure if these are the last days? Even the bible states that in 2 Timothy 3:1 "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people." 

AS you can see we can tell when it is the last days by the kind of people we see surrounding us. Every where you go, at church, at work, at school, what kind of people surround you. There was a recent trend that you have to learn how to love yourself, or you can love others... so not biblical. Because in the bible it says, romans 6 "13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness." NO where in the bible it talks about loving yourself. The only thing it mentions is love your neighbor as yourself. But that does not give us an order to go pleasure yourself, and learning to love yourself, by doing what ever bring you pleasure, to learn how you should love your neighbor. 

NOw is the time to prepare, to get strong in the Lord, now is the time to love God, not yourself. God is still waiting, He is still close by, dont want for him to turn his back on you.

 A lot of things will be happening all around us too, like it states In Luke 21:11

"There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven." 

The clouds are gathering, the storm is brewing, it is almost here, prepare yourself to withstand all the storms of life, devastation and calamity, by being in Jesus. By loving him alone.
So I am sure a lot of people will agree with me that yes, we are living in the last days, and the end of the world is upon us, how will we live these last days. I know we still have to go to work, and do our daily life, but how do we spend our free time, do we increase in the knowledge of God, or increase our bodily pleasure?
