Default End times anyone?

The mention of end times has come up a number places on this forum so I thought I would start a thread for it and voice some of my views. Jesus said this in 2 Timothy.

2 Timothy 3:1-5

1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Godó 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.


I can see this going on all around us and I personally believe it is going to get worse before Jesus returns for his followers.

As an agnostic pothead, i guess those two parts aren't good for me. Here's hoping the second coming is after my going.

BTW, kudos on your faith; at least you have one that makes sense to you. Lots of us don't.

I won't say it's not happening, sense I see some of this also. But I saw it 40 years ago, and my parents saw it in their youth. We can go all the way back to a time when electornics did not exist and the going job was goat herder, they believed the end time was up on them then.

I don't worry about when it comes, but the trick is to be ready all the time so your not caught with your pants down.

I too was once an agnostic pothead, I sincerely encourage you investigate the teachings of Jesus further. It won't matter if you are gone before Jesus comes back, the end result will be the same.

Luke 21:10-12
10Then He continued by saying to them, "Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom,
11and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

12"But before all these things, (H)they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for My name's sake.


Anyone else see this happening?

I agree opaww, my parents and grandparents have talked about the very thing you mentioned. Luke 21:13 says,

13"(I)It will lead to an opportunity for your testimony

so I am.

+1000 Spit

While it is true that these signs have been in existence since man was created, the real indicator is the rapidity and volume of these occurrences. There is no doubt in my mind that these "indicators" have grown exponentially in the last 40 years...people ask "how much worse can it get?" - read Revelations and weep! We are not there yet, and I hope I am not around when we are...because THAT will be the real SHTF scenario for which "preparedness" will have little meaning or effect.
You can run, but you can't hide...

Nope!! Not enough destruction, chaos, or war!! Besides, no one will for see the end of days. I for one do not presume to be a visionary or prophet of the end of times.

I have come to a unique place in my relationship with God where I no longer worry about the "end times" like I used to. I think the world will try to make believers suffer, but God will shelter His own against the coming wrath.

Since the world is already attacking believers at record numbers, I am excited to be living in such times as these. The worst thing that can happen is we can die. But since our bodies are merely shells containing our spirit, is this really a loss?

Be prepared if that's what your heart leads you to do, but press in to the Father is you want to have peace. We were not meant to worry about it.

You have stated my view on this very subject quite well but that is only my personal view. I'm hoping this thread my encourage others to investigate this subject and perhaps in the near future share our view.

God has given me peace and joy in my life, I hope I can share that with others here. At the same time I can share my love of this great nation, firearms and my dislike of the left, hippies and and obamalamadingdong.
