There is constant debate among believers in the church about whether or not we are living in the end times, as described by the Bible. Judging by what is happening in our world, Lion of Judah Ministries says, biblical end-times prophecy is indeed happening, whether many choose to see it as truth or not.
The falling away of the church from the truth of God's Word and from their faithfulness to Him, the ministry says, is a sure sign that Jesus will be coming soon. Judging from what is happening within the church right now, and our country, it is confirmation of what the Bible teaches.
Second Thessalonians 2:3-4 says that before Christ comes, there must be a falling away and a great rebellion against God. It is apparent that is happening not only in secular society, but also within the church.
"Do not let anyone deceive you in any way. For that Day will not come unless a falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or is worshipped ..." (MEV).
Hosea 4:6 says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being My priest."
"One of the reasons some believers have fallen from the faith is that they do not know what the scripture says about the time we are in," Lion of Judah Ministries says. "God does not celebrate or encourage ignorance. That is the reason that he lamented that his very own people are destroyed from a lack of knowledge."
All end-time events that we need to know have been prophesied and record in Scripture for our knowledge and understanding.
"It is our duty to know and discern what these scriptures actually say and mean," Lion of Judah says. "Do not run away from the prophetic nature of the Word of God. If we are watchful, we can follow the trend of events recorded in the Bible that are unfolding before our very eyes.
"Paul wrote to Timothy about the falling away of the church in 1 Timothy 4:1-2. Here, Paul was referring to the church, not the world. Some shall depart from the faith. They will speak lies and be hypocritical. But most of all conscience will seared. They will not have any sense of guilt for doing evil. They will begin to act in opposition to the faith they once received. And, they will be drawn to the things they left behind."
"Accepting false doctrines is to make a shipwreck of the Christian faith," the video narrator says. "2 Timothy 4:3-4 says that it is within the church that false prophets will arise and deceive many. Certain sermons are not being preached because the church is concerned to preach only what the people want to hear and not what God wants them to hear. Only a few preachers give sermons in the reality of hell .. there are preachers who exalt themselves on the pulpit rather than God Almighty. It is visible in the church."
