Are we truly the Final Generation? Are we the last generation? Have you recently looked at the world around you? What does the Bible tell us the last days be like? “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” – 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
We also learn from 2 Peter 3, “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 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. 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: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 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.” It would appear that we are the final generation. Isn’t it quite terrifying out there? Or, somewhat confusing? It is also horrible seeing what is happening to those around us. Are we the last generation?
As I look at my own children and the struggles that many kids have nowadays, things are much different than what they used to be. We are the last generation. It should be pretty evident to anyone who is aware of the signs of the times. The whole world is currently in a mighty uproar and I see fear in the eyes of most people that I come across. For example, the grocery store, a doctor’s appointment, or just about anywhere that you go. What happened? How did things did so bad so quickly? Just a couple of years ago, this world appeared to be normal. Now, it is not even close. Slowly seeing people lose their grip on what they define as reality. Are we the final generation?
“Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble. To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God?” – Isaiah 40:21-27.
I used to be someone who never read the Bible at all. To even attempt to try to understand the Prophets seemed alien to me. Now, they are some of my favorite books to read. Understanding the Word of God and being able to lie down in green pasture the very moment that we open the cover sounds like something pretty remarkable. Well, I can testify to this truth. It truly is. In some places, it is also quite terrifying.
“Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompence to his enemies. Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.” – Isaiah 66:4-7.
Biblical Revelation To The Last Generation – In The Father’s Shoes
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.” – Isaiah 41:10-13.
