Proverbs of a 40 yr old man
Evil persons in the last days. The Scriptures warn us that in the last days life will be very difficult. The LORD Jesus will return one day. The period before he comes will be the last days. They will be terrible times and life will be hard. We can see the birth pangs already happening in the world. But they will spread wider and get far worse in the last days. And this because the hearts of men will grow continually evil with no end in sight. This is not new though, there have been people like this all through history. But in the last days, there will be a big increase in such evil. Like in the days of Noah so the last days will be the same. The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. Amen. The Spirit of God still strives with man's heart to receive The Gospel of the Kingdom. In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. In those days I will give my Spirit to my servants, both men and women, and they will prophesy. I will work miracles in the sky above and wonders on the earth below. There will be blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The sun will become dark, and the moon will turn blood red before that great and glorious day of the LORD arrives. But everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved. As Holy Spirit pours out a latter rain still the hearts of many people will grow cold. These are people who will not look after anyone else. They are selfish and only think about themselves. Their aim in life is to get as much money as they can for their own benefit. They will think of themselves as being most important. They are proud of what they have. And they are proud of what they are in their own opinion. They try to convince people of how much better they are. They talk as if other people, as compared to themselves, are of no worth. They will say evil things. They will not respect other people in how they speak. They will be insulting and not polite. They will not obey or show respect for their own parents. They are not at all grateful for what they are or have. They do not give thanks to God for all that he has given. They live as if there were no God. This is because they will not believe in him. They do not have natural feelings and they do not show love. They never forgive people if they think that they have done wrong things to them. They will wrongly accuse people and speak bad things about them. They are not able to control their own actions. They are fierce and wild. They hate everything good because they are evil. You cannot depend on them because they will not be loyal. They will not do what they have promised. They do things without thinking. And they do not care what the effects might be. They will do anything to get what they want. They see themselves as important and they are proud of it. Their one aim is to satisfy their own desires. They love to please themselves. They have no room for God in their lives. They do not love or know him. Many of these wicked persons say that they have some kind of religion. Some will even claim to be Christians. A true belief in God will have the power to change us. And it will change how we live. The attitudes of these people show that they do not have a real belief in God. How they live denies the power of their religion. And so it shows that their religion is false. Pray ask God to help get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls.
