II Timothy 3:1-5, I Timothy 4:1-3 , II Peter 3:3

We can discern that we are living in the last days by the kind of people who live in the world today .People who are selfish,coveteous, boastful , proud,abusive,disobedient to parents,ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control ,brutal, not lovers of good, trecherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasures etc.As we observe the behaviour of the people of the world today surely we can discern that we are living in the last days.

3.PERSECUTION

Luke 21:12,16-17

We can discern that we are living in the last days by the persecution that God’s children are experiencing today all over the world.Even in countries where there used to be freedom for evangelism there is persecution today.As we observe the persecution of God’s children surely we can discern that we are living in the last days.

4.PROBLEMS

Luke 21:34 Luke 17:26-30

We can discern that we are living in the last days by the problems facing todays society such as surfeiting, drunkeness and cares and fears and worries .Jesus revealed such a condition will prevail during the last days and warned His children not to allow themselves to be drowned in the cares of this life lest the day of His coming come upon them unawares. As we see the problems facing today’s society surely we can discern that we are living in the last days.

6.PROCLAMATION

We can discern that we are living in the last days by the rapid proclamation of the gospel all over the world. Modern media has made it possible for the gospel to be preached to millions through television , radio, print media etc. As we observe the rapid spread of the gospel surely we can discern that we are living in the last days.

7.PREPARATION

We can discern that we are living in the last days by the call to prepare for the coming of the Lord. All over the world God’s people are sensing the need for preparation and purification to meet the Lord when He comes. The Holy Spirit is preparing the bride of Christ to present it blameless in spirit, soul and body at the coming of the Lord.Surely we can discern tht we are living in the last days.

Let us prepare to meet the Lord when He comes and let us proclaim the gospel to every creature before He comes. May God bless you.
