    How will it be in the last days
  • Marleina on 2 Timothy 3:1
    I too feel that the media has its own agenda which does not include telling the truth! We never hear about the number of deaths that are attributed to drivers using cell phones! I'm so glad to see that some of us are "awake"! God help us.....

    The first 9 verses of 2 Timothy Chapter 3 gives us a description of the last days. We have been in the last days for a long time now, since Paul's day. The last days are not to be taken as meaning the tribulation period, even though the tribulation period is included in the last days. Paul was very compelled in his letters to speak about the apostasy of the last days.

    He believed the apostasy was starting in his day. And we are still in those last days. The last days began in Acts Chapter 2 at the coming of the Holy Spirit, and they will end at the end of the Tribulation Period. We are in the last days deeper now than in Paul's day. And again, Paul believed the apostasy was in his day. And we see all these things happening in and amongst the church.

    A study of the description of the last days shows us two things. First, we see the characteristic of people in the last days in Verses 1 through 5, and then the condition of people in the last days in Verses 6 through 9. These are people that are in the church, as Verse 5 tells us. They are not just in it, but among the believers. These are the things that are happening in and among the church even today. These are people who have a form of godliness but reject and deny the power thereof.

    While I do believe that the media and politics have "manipulated" details, for their own nefarious reasons. I do believe this is a horrible virus, worse than "just the flu". And to say anything else is showing a lack of compassion and sensitivity to those that have gone through it, or will still have to go through it. Whether it is the person, or their families, or the first responders, and healthcare workers. God's word says everywhere: Matt 7:1 Judge not lest ye be judged.... Ephesians 4:32 Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted...

    Unfortunately, the media likes to deceive and pretend that the leading causes of preventable death is no big deal, while acting like we should focus on a way lower threat. Since Feb 1, more people have died of pneumonia alone than covid-19. Source: CDC which is the absolute authority. So, no one covers that higher threat, but covers the lesser threat. But pneumonia is nowhere near as dangerous as accidents, such as driving. And smoking causes hundreds of thousands of preventable deaths, as does alcohol and drugs, but somehow that's popular and gets ignored. Strain out a gnat and swallow a camel Matthew 23:24.

    Besides heart disease and other higher risks, the absolute highest threat of death is entirely preventable. Not only that but the government actually encourages and helps fund the deaths which is absolutely sickening. It's abortion. Many states even conceal the horrifying high number killed, but it is estimated to be 1 million just in the US alone. God will surely punish severely all those involved in mass murder. Media rarely will talk about the actual leading causes of death which are entirely preventable.

    I agree with much of your statement, where was the out rage when people are dying from other things just as deadly ? Death is death . Thank God Jesus over came it and lives !
