I Wonder

Volume 42

May 2019

Number 5

Beloved:

While on a trip of any length, Parents are sure to be asked by their Child or Children: "Are we there yet?" No doubt the next question to follow is: "How much longer before we get THERE?" These two questions might well be asked concerning the Subject Matter found in II Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV): “This KNOW also, that in THE LAST DAYS Perilous Times shall come” (II Timothy 3:1, KJV). Here we find PREDICTIONS of THE LAST DAYS as the APOSTLE Paul writes to Timothy. 

These verses have had many and various Interpretations by the People of God. To cite a few: 

(1) There are those who say THE LAST DAYS here refer to the period of time between Christ’s first and second Coming. 

(2) Others believe THE LAST DAYS begin with the Ascension of our Lord and will conclude at the Rapture of the Church. 

(3) Still others believe these verses refer to the time Immediately Preceding the Rapture of the Church and the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus (my personal belief). 

(4) Yet others believe there are many Periods of Moral Corruption throughout the History of the Church that could mirror these verses (e.g., The Dark Ages). 

So, how will we know when we arrive at THE LAST DAYS? The ANSWER IS TO BE FOUND AS Paul warns Timothy (and us) that TIMES will be PERILOUS (as in difficult and dangerous), a period of TERRIBLE APOSTASY (Read II Timothy 3:2-5, KJV). Here is one of the most frightening, disgusting Pictures in the New Testament of what a godless world would be like. Here are the terrible qualities of godlessness set in a horrible series. QUESTION: ARE WE THERE YET? I WONDER!

YOU are a Blessing to this Preacher and REVIVAL MINISTRY. YOUR HELP is used of our Lord to keep this Ministry of Revival before God’s People. THANK YOU, THANK YOU. As always, I love YOU dearly in our Wonderful Lord Jesus. 

Now a Word from HIS WORD: “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh”--Luke 21:28 (KJV).
