Why the last Days part 2



Heb 1:1-3

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

Acts 2:17

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:


It is important to note that one of the major markers for the last days is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. And this happened about two thousand (2000 yrs) ago. So the last days did not begin ten or twenty years ago or after the Second World War, the era of the last days started when Christ was exalted and the Holy Spirit was outpoured.

We see in our text that the Holy Spirit causes strange acts to happen in the lives of the people of God when they receive Him but it really is not the case for those who are not in the kingdom of God because the dawning of the last days only means a reminder to the devil and his kingdom that his time is shorter, this means a further manifestation also of demonic activities causing the men of this world to be more evil and ungodly (See 2 Timothy 3:1-9).

We should know that the last days are a good thing for the church because it first and foremost means the outpouring of the Holy spirit to us ward, secondly it means a season when we get to hear expressly from God through His son ( see: Hebrews 1) and a time when the kingdom of this world and of darkness is being weakened for the kingdom of God and His church because even the gates of the kingdom of darkness cannot stand the invasion of the church of Christ (see Matt 16:18).

The dawning of the endtime means God’s people are to be more circumspect and careful in this world because their adversary the devil is particularly angry, like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. The end time people of God cannot afford some excesses like God’s people of old because the battle line has become tougher. There is a manifestation of the power the power of God to help us who are in Christ because in the world we will have tribulation but in Christ we have peace.

Go into today knowing that we are in the endtime and this is the time for the manifestation of God’s great power in your life. No devil can stop you because you are part of the church of Christ.

Prayer confession for the Day:

Matt 16:19

And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
