The Bible uses the expression last days to refer to the concluding time up to a divinely appointed excution that marks the end of a wicked system of things. The Bible describes events and conditions that mark that we are living in the last days. I have listed some of these below. Please note that I have summaried all the scriptures stated. 1. Matthew 24:7- nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. 2. Matthew 24:7- there will be food shortages in one place after another 3. Luke 21:11- There will be great earthquakes 4. Luke 21:11- Pestilences in one place after another 5. Matthew 24: 11 & 12- Increased lawlessness accompanied by a cooling off of love on the part of the greater number Have you seen these things occuring?

Certainly it is that wars and epidemics have always been there in the history,as someone has written,but in the bible ,I don't remember where ,Jesus says :there will be wars and noises of was....it is thanks to the Tv that we now have 'noises of war'. In the passed time th e wars there were but we could not have the noise of it.

What if the false prophet is already in our midst, but away from the public eye. Maybe he's still a teenager. You never know. Cause He will come to power only when the entire world is in great turmoil. I pretty much see it happening now as we speak. Global warming, starvation, economical unrest, wars, civil wars, terrorism, to name a few.

True prophets are individuals or organizations that proclaim messages that they attribute to a superhuman source but that dont originate with God and are not in harmony with his revealed will. For example persons who state that it is Gods will to kill another. The bible give us ways we can identify false prophets. One is: 1. Matthew 7:15-20 states in summary that we must be on the watch of false prophets and that by their fruits we will be able to recognise them since they bear bad fruit or manifest a bad character in their lives. So since there are person today who proclaim messages that they claim originate from god but however are not manifesting qualities laid out in the bible there are false profits among us today.

Yes, I have seen these things happening more and more frequently. Yes, they might have been happening for the past hundred years, but the situations nowadays are more serious. You have never heard nations using big weapons to destroy each other have you? The food shortage is becoming more and more common. It may not be obvious in the US, but it's very common here and other places (obviously). The only reason we don't see it is because we're paying attention to others and not to us. But that's also clalled selflessness, isn't it?

Yes the situation is more serious. More persons are dieing as more diseases and wars occur. And what you sais about the weapons are also true. And the weapons are used like toys. Everyone has one and they kill persons without feeling a thing. We are also in a recession and the price of food is now so expensive. But what is strange is that no matter what the government officials do they cannot solve all of our problems. Have you ever wondered why?
