10 - Are these the Last Days (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
Luke 21:28 (KJV) "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."
"This know also, that in the last days, perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection…"
2 Timothy 3:2.
The strongest natural affection is that of a mother to her child. Even in the animal world, a mother will fight to protect her young. Think about the “mother bear” with her cubs. All species protect their young. But with the passage of Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. Thus, the natural love of a mother was broken and over 63 million lives have been sacrificed to the god of pleasure. The court could not decide when life begin. According to Genesis human life began when God breathed life into Adam.
Genesis 2:7 (KJV) “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.”
Since that instant eternal life has passed from human to human through two living cells, the female egg, and the male sperm. Thus human life is a continuum from God. Human life does not end and will ultimately take one to Heaven or hell, depending upon one’s belief in Jesus’ substitutionary death on the cross.
Also, God created marital love to be between one man and one woman.
Genesis 2:21-25 (KJV) “And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
Our distortions of this law of God’s is an abomination, no matter what the courts have ruled. The Sons of God (fallen angels) attempted to violate this law and create a super race to overthrow God. That rebellion ended with God’s destruction of the Earth by water, killing every living thing, except Noah and his family. Our current rebellion will only end with the destruction of the Earth by fire at the end of time.
