Matthew 24:5-8 gives us some important clues so we can discern the approach of the end times; “For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.”
An increase in false messiahs, an increase in warfare, and increases in famines, plagues, and natural disasters—these are signs of the end times. In this passage, though, we are given a warning: we are not to be deceived, because these events are only the beginning of birth pains; the end is still to come.
Some interpreters point to every earthquake, every political upheaval, and every rumor of war as a sure sign that the end times are rapidly approaching. While these events may signal the approach of the last days, they are not necessarily indicators that the end times have arrived. The apostle Paul warned the last days would bring a marked increase in false teaching. “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons” (1 Timothy 4:1).
The last days are described as “perilous times” because of the increasingly evil character of man and people who actively “resist the truth” (2 Timothy 3:1-9; see also 2 Thessalonians 2:3).
What do we know for sure about the end times? Two things. First, that the AntiChrist will come preaching unity, multiculturalism, racial brotherhood, and globalism. Anyone who supports these things is, whether they know it or not, doing the devil’s own work, and should be the enemy of every believer.
But secondly, we know that we can sneak a peek ahead to the end of the book, to see how the story turns out, and guess what? No matter how bleak things may look, when it’s all said and done?
Get red-pilled, then get White-pilled, and prepare to claim your victory.
