“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” 2 Tess 2:3-4
There’s several signs revealed in the Bible, that announce Jesus’ return! Earthquakes, wars, hunger…Signs that have been witnessed all over the world. However, a sign is manifesting itself more and more, apostasy.
For those who don’t know, APOSTASY means: TO PUBLICLY DENY THE FAITH THAT WAS ONCE CONFESSED.
It doesn’t mean to abandon the faith because it grew cold, relaxed, or even due to falling in sin, no!!! Apostasy means to deny and go against that in which you one day believed in. That’s the biggest characteristic of the ANTICHRIST.
The Holy Spirit warns us, that near the end of times, before the ANTICHRIST’S manifestation, many will manifest his ’spirit’.
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,” 1 Timothy 4:1-2
Those mentioned gave ears to men used by deceiving spirits, men who had their minds seared, hardened and were insensitive towards repentance.
It’s not difficult to find videos of people who try to defame the faith that they once announced (APOSTASY). Men who once announced Salvation, but today they announce hatred and doom.
Meanwhile, may everyone be aware that this is so that the signs said to happen before Jesus’ return, may come to be!
