IN THE LAST DAYS

These days are fast approaching

And perhaps we’re in the midst of them,

Where godlessness will try to prevail

Bringing sorrow and much shame.

Difficulties will arise

Because when God is far removed,

From all institutions of society

Every aspect will not improve.

In the last days…

People will be lovers of themselves,

And have no respect or any regard;

It’s where arrogance will dwell.

In the last days…

Parents will not be respected,

And where ungratefulness and heartless measures

Towards each other will be subjected.

In the last days…

The slander without self-control,

With recklessness, swollen with conceit

In the heart will take strongholds.

In the last days…

His noble name will be blasphemed,

Where unwholesome words will proceed

And where unforgiveness will be seen.

In the last days…

The love of money will increase,

With brutal tactics that are unappeasable

And where pleasures they will seek.

It’s a sad state of affairs

When the author of life is rejected,

And when evil ways are much preferred

And where God’s statutes are not respected.

There is always a consequence

As we reap what we do sow,

But there’s safety and protection

When God’s ways we learn and know.

In the last days…

God help everyone left on earth,

As we pray sincerely that all repent

And be renewed with the spiritual birth.

(C) P.B. 2022

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.  And from such people turn away!”  2 Timothy 3:1-4

“Repent, and let every one of you be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”  Acts 2:38

“And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God.  Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal…But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.”  Revelation 21:10, 21:27

“Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.’”  John 3:3
