... how I shrank not from declaring unto you anything that was profitable, and teaching you publicly, and from house to house ... - Acts 20:20
A Journey through the Book of Revelation
When apostle Paul was writing to Timothy he warned him that "in the last days perilous times will come" 2 Timothy 3:1. Paul then lists a multitude of characteristics of these perilous times, giving Timothy, and us, a picture of what to expect.
The word perilous is the Greek word 'chalepos' and it means: harsh, savage, difficult, dangerous, painful, fierce, grievous, hard to deal with [Word Wealth in New Spirit Filled Life Bible - 2 Tim.3:1]. Paul also told Timothy in 1 Timothy 4:1 that "the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons". There have been, and still are, difficult, painful, fierce, savage and dangerous days ahead that we need to walk through in Christ.
Paul says that these perilous times will be in the last days. Many people focus majorly on the negative things about the last days. What else do the Scriptures say about the the last days?
• "God...has in these last days spoken to us by His Son" Hebrews 1:1-2. God speaks through the Son to us in these last days! We can now hear God through Jesus!
• "And it shall come to pass in the last days', says God, 'That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh..." Acts 2:17 [quoted from Joel 2:28 by apostle Peter]. In the last days God is pouring out His Spirit on all flesh, all who will receive Jesus, without partiality. How awesome!!
Rom 1:5, "For we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name."
