In the LAST days


Matthew 24:42

King James Version

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour 

your Lord doth come.

Are we in the last days?

What are we to expect?

What does the Bible say?

Daniel 12:1-4

King James Version

12 And at that time shall Michael stand up, 

the great prince 

which standeth for the children of thy people: 

and there shall be a time of trouble, 

such as never was 

since there was a nation even to that same time: 

and at that time thy people shall be delivered, 

every one that shall be found written in the book.

2 And many of them that sleep 

in the dust of the earth shall awake, 

some to everlasting life, 

and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

3 And they that be wise 

shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; 

and they that turn many to righteousness 

as the stars for ever and ever.

4 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.

Joel 2:28-32

King James Version

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, 

that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; 

and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, 

your old men shall dream dreams, 

your young men shall see visions:

29 And also upon the servants 

and upon the handmaids in those days 

will I pour out my spirit.

30 And I will shew wonders 

in the heavens and in the earth, 

blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, 

and the moon into blood, 

before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

32 And it shall come to pass, 

that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord 

shall be delivered: 

for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, 

as the Lord hath said, 

and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.

Matthew 12:36-37

King James Version

36 But I say unto you, 

That every idle word that men shall speak, 

they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, 

and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Matthew 24:14

King James Version

14 And this gospel of the kingdom 

shall be preached in all the world 

for a witness unto all nations; 

and then shall the end come.

Matthew 24:29-31

King James Version

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days 

shall the sun be darkened, 

and the moon shall not give her light, 

and the stars shall fall from heaven, 

and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear 

the sign of the Son of man in heaven: 

and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, 

and they shall see the Son of man coming 

in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels 

with a great sound of a trumpet, 

and they shall gather together his elect 

from the four winds, 

from one end of heaven to the other.

Matthew 24:37-39

King James Version

37 But as the days of Noah were, 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood 

they were eating and drinking, 

marrying and giving in marriage, 

until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Matthew 24:48-51

King James Version

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, 

My lord delayeth his coming;

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, 

and to eat and drink with the drunken;

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day 

when he looketh not for him, 

and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And shall cut him asunder, 

and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: 

there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 21:25-28

King James Version

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, 

and in the moon, and in the stars; 

and upon the earth distress of nations, 

with perplexity; 

the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, 

and for looking after those things 

which are coming on the earth: 

for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of man 

coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

28 And when these things begin to come to pass, 

then look up, and lift up your heads; 

for your redemption draweth nigh.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3

King James Version

5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, 

ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly 

that the day of the Lord 

so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; 

then sudden destruction cometh upon them, 

as travail upon a woman with child; 

and they shall not escape.

2 Timothy 3:1-7

King James Version

3 This know also, that in the last days 

perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, 

covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, 

disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, 

false accusers, incontinent, fierce, 

despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, 

lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof: 

from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, 

and never able to come 

to the knowledge of the truth.

Hebrews 1:1-2

King James Version

1 God, 

who at sundry times and in divers manners 

spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, 

whom he hath appointed heir of all things, 

by whom also he made the worlds;

James 3:1

King James Version

3 My brethren, 

be not many masters, 

knowing that we shall receive 

the greater condemnation.

2 Peter 3:1-4

King James Version

3 This second epistle, beloved, 

I now write unto you; 

in both which I stir up your pure minds 

by way of remembrance:

2 That ye may be mindful of the words 

which were spoken before by the holy prophets,

 and of the commandment of us 

the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

3 Knowing this first, 

that there shall come in the last days scoffers, 

walking after their own lusts,

4 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.

2 Peter 3:5-7

King James Version

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, 

that by the word of God the heavens were of old, 

and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6 Whereby the world that then was, 

being overflowed with water, perished:

7 But the heavens and the earth, 

which are now, 

by the same word are kept in store, 

reserved unto fire against the day of judgment 

and perdition of ungodly men.

2 Peter 3:8

King James Version

8 But, beloved, 

be not ignorant of this one thing, 

that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, 

and a thousand years as one day.

2 Peter 3:9

King James Version

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:10

King James Version

10 But the day of the Lord 

will come as a thief in the night; 

in the which the heavens shall pass away 

with a great noise, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, 

the earth also and the works that are therein 

shall be burned up.

Knowing all these, how are to we be then?

How are we to conduct ourselves?

How shall we be saved?

Who shall we believe?

Matthew 24:42-43

King James Version

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43 But know this, 

that if the goodman of the house 

had known in what watch the thief would come, 

he would have watched, 

and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

Matthew 24:44-47

King James Version

44 Therefore be ye also ready: 

for in such an hour as ye think not 

the Son of man cometh.

45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, 

whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, 

to give them meat in due season?

46 Blessed is that servant, 

whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

47 Verily I say unto you, 

That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

John 10:27-28

King James Version

27 My sheep hear my voice, 

and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; 

and they shall never perish, 

neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

John 14:6

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, the truth, and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, 

but by me.

Acts 16:31

King James Version

31 And they said, 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

King James Version

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless 

unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 3:11-13

King James Version

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, 

what manner of persons ought ye to be 

in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting 

unto the coming of the day of God, 

wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, 

according to his promise, 

look for new heavens and a new earth, 

wherein dwelleth righteousness.

2 Peter 3:14

King James Version

14 Wherefore, beloved, 

seeing that ye look for such things, 

be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, 

without spot, 

and blameless.

2 Peter 3:17-18

King James Version

17 Ye therefore, beloved,

 seeing ye know these things before, 

beware lest ye also, 

being led away with the error of the wicked, 

fall from your own stedfastness.

18 But grow in grace, 

and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour 

Jesus Christ. 

To him be glory both now and for ever.

When man forsakes GOD


Jeremiah 2:13

King James Version

13 For my people have committed two evils; 

they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, 

and hewed them out cisterns, 

broken cisterns, 

that can hold no water.

There have been many instances in the Bible, wherein GOD's people forsook Him.

How did GOD react?

What did He do?

What did He promise to do?

Find out from the book of Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 1:16

King James Version

16 And I will utter my judgments against them 

touching all their wickedness, 

who have forsaken me, 

and have burned incense unto other gods,

 and worshipped the works of their own hands.

Jeremiah 2:5

King James Version

5 Thus saith the Lord, 

What iniquity have your fathers found in me, 

that they are gone far from me, 

and have walked after vanity, 

and are become vain?

Jeremiah 2:12

King James Version

12 Be astonished, 

O ye heavens, at this, 

and be horribly afraid, 

be ye very desolate, 

saith the Lord.

Jeremiah 5:18-31

King James Version

18 Nevertheless in those days, 

saith the Lord, 

I will not make a full end with you.

19 And it shall come to pass, 

when ye shall say, 

Wherefore doeth the Lord our God 

all these things unto us? 

then shalt thou answer them, 

Like as ye have forsaken me, 

and served strange gods in your land, 

so shall ye serve strangers in a land 

that is not your's.

20 Declare this in the house of Jacob, 

and publish it in Judah, saying,

21 Hear now this, 

O foolish people, 

and without understanding; 

which have eyes, and see not; 

which have ears, and hear not:

22 Fear ye not me? 

saith the Lord: 

will ye not tremble at my presence, 

which have placed the sand 

for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, 

that it cannot pass it: 

and though the waves thereof toss themselves, 

yet can they not prevail; 

though they roar, 

yet can they not pass over it?

23 But this people hath a revolting 

and a rebellious heart; 

they are revolted and gone.

24 Neither say they in their heart, 

Let us now fear the Lord our God, 

that giveth rain, 

both the former and the latter, 

in his season: 

he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.

25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, 

and your sins have withholden good things from you.

26 For among my people are found wicked men: 

they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; 

they set a trap, they catch men.

27 As a cage is full of birds, 

so are their houses full of deceit: 

therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.

28 They are waxen fat, they shine: 

yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: 

they judge not the cause, 

the cause of the fatherless, 

yet they prosper; 

and the right of the needy do they not judge.

29 Shall I not visit for these things? 

saith the Lord: 

shall not my soul be avenged 

on such a nation as this?

30 A wonderful and horrible thing is committed 

in the land;

31 The prophets prophesy falsely, 

and the priests bear rule by their means; 

and my people love to have it so: 

and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Jeremiah 17:5-6

King James Version

5 Thus saith the Lord; 

Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, 

and maketh flesh his arm, 

and whose heart departeth from the Lord.

6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, 

and shall not see when good cometh; 

but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, 

in a salt land and not inhabited.

Jeremiah 17:13

King James Version

13 O Lord, 

the hope of Israel, 

all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, 

and they that depart from me 

shall be written in the earth, 

because they have forsaken the Lord, 

the fountain of living waters.

Jeremiah 22:6-9

King James Version

6 For thus saith the Lord 

unto the king's house of Judah; 

Thou art Gilead unto me, 

and the head of Lebanon: 

yet surely I will make thee a wilderness, 

and cities which are not inhabited.

7 And I will prepare destroyers against thee, 

every one with his weapons: 

and they shall cut down thy choice cedars, 

and cast them into the fire.

8 And many nations shall pass by this city, 

and they shall say every man to his neighbour, 

Wherefore hath the Lord done thus 

unto this great city?

9 Then they shall answer, 

Because they have forsaken 

the covenant of the Lord their God, 

and worshipped other gods, 

and served them.
