Don't Believe We Live in the End Times? The Bible Disagrees

11:00AM 11/17/2021 Shawn A. Akers

For those who don't believe that the Bible has anything to do with what is going on in the 21st century, Pastor Jack Hibbs says they should think again. And for those who do not believe the end times are near, Hibbs says everyone, not just believers, should pay close attention to what is happening in the world right now.

The lead pastor of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino Hills, California, Hibbs says you need only to observe the current climate of culture to discover that it has become one of immorality and one that is "spinning out of control.' Hibbs says Jesus spoke of this 2,000 years ago, and Hibbs quoted scripture to back it up:

  • "Jesus said there would come a time of the escalation against truth," Hibbs says. "In Matthew 24:3-5, he says, 'Take heed that no one deceives you.' For many will come in my name saying I am the Christ, and will deceive many."

  • "Jesus said there will come an escalation of the deconstruction regarding society. God's pattern was that I have made human beings in my image. Genesis 1:27 says, 'So God created man in His own images; in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." Does that ring a bell with the entire transgender issue?

  • "Jesus said there will come an escalation of calamities in society. In Matthew 24:7, it says, 'For nation will rise against nation."

  • "Jesus said there would come an escalation of the death of brotherly love. Man's common, general love for one another will wane. Many will be offended. Matthew 24:10,12 says, "Then many will fall away and betray one another, and hate one another. And may false prophets will rise and deceive many. Because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold." Sound familiar?

  • "Jesus said there will be a devaluing of human life. Luke 17:26-30 says, 'Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. They were eating, drinking, marrying, and were given in marriage until the day when Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.Likewise, as it was in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built. But on the day that Lot departed from Sodom, fire and brimstone rained from heaven and destroyed them all.So will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed.'"

  • The Bible says there will come an escalation of disregard for the law. Genesis 6:5 reads, 'The Lord saw the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was continually only evil."

  • "Jesus said there will come an escalation of racism upon the earth. Matthew 2:7 says, 'For nation will rise against nation and kingdom will rise against kingdom.'"

  • Jesus said there will come an escalation of fear. Luke 21:11 says that 'great earthquakes will occur in various places, and there will be famines and pestilence. And there will be terrors and great signs from Heaven.'" Fear of the COVID pandemic has gripped the world for almost two years. The economy is shaky, prices for everything are rising, and anxiety levels in society are at a fever pitch.

  • "Jesus said there will be an escalation of the divorce of man from God. Man will, as it were, launch a case against God to divorce himself from God. God will no longer be in our thinking, no longer be in our world, no longer be in our classrooms, no longer be in our courts and no longer be in our marriages. He will no longer be. We will become like 'gods' and call the shots and run the show. What happens to a culture when something like that takes place?"

Hibbs says all the signs are there. It's time for believers to wake up and see them right before our eyes.
