In these last days, as we await the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, it is essential for every Christian to be vigilant and discerning of the signs that point to His imminent return. The Scriptures provide us with crucial warnings to guide us during these times of uncertainty and spiritual challenges. Just like the ten virgins in Jesus' parable, we must ensure that our lamps are lit and we have enough oil (representing the grace and support of the Holy Spirit) to endure until the bridegroom arrives. Let us explore some of the warning signs every Christian should be looking out for in these last days.



1. The Spirit of Slumbering

The spirit of slumber is a dangerous spiritual influence that weakens a person's commitment to the things of God. It causes disinterest and laziness towards prayer, studying the Word, attending church services, and obeying God's commands. Jesus warned us through the parables of the ten virgins and the wheat and weeds about the dangers of spiritual slumber. As believers, we must be watchful and avoid distractions that can lull us into a state of spiritual inactivity.

"Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." - Ephesians 5:14



2. The Increase in Sin and Sinfulness

In these last days, we witness a disturbing increase in sin and moral decay. Society has become desensitized to immorality and abominations, and what was once considered sinful is now embraced and normalized. As Christians, we must uphold the moral values taught in the Scriptures and guard our hearts against the corrupting influence of the world. The level of sinfulness in the world today serves as a warning sign of the approaching end times.

"Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold." - Matthew 24:12



3. Love for Self Over Love for God

One of the significant signs of the end times is the prevalence of self-centeredness and a lack of genuine love for God. People have become lovers of themselves, seeking personal gain and pleasure above all else. The love for God and righteousness has been replaced with selfish desires, leading many to stray from the path of faith. As Christians, we must constantly examine our hearts and ensure that we put God's will above our own desires.

"Having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people." - 2 Timothy 3:5



4. The Falling Away of Many

Jesus warned us that in the last days, there will be a falling away from the faith, and many believers will be deceived by false prophets and teachings. This mass deception is a dangerous trap that can lead even the strongest of saints astray. It is crucial for every believer to remain rooted in God's truth, stand firm in faith, and be discerning of false teachings and doctrines.

"Let the one who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall." - 1 Corinthians 10:12



5. Intense Persecution of God's People

As the end times draw nearer, persecution of Christians will intensify. Believers will face opposition, hatred, and even martyrdom for their faith in Jesus Christ. However, we must remember that our ultimate victory lies in Christ, and we are called to stand firm in the face of persecution, trusting in God's strength to carry us through.

"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 5:10



6. Increased Wickedness and Selfishness

In the last days, we will witness a surge in wickedness and selfishness, with people turning against each other for personal gain and pleasure. The Bible warns us that in such times, the love of many will grow cold. As followers of Christ, we must resist the prevailing culture of selfishness and strive to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus to those around us.

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God." - 1 John 4:7



7. The Gospel Preached to All Nations

Amidst the signs of darkness and tribulation, there is a glimmer of hope. The gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a testimony to all nations before Christ's return. This is a remarkable sign, as it shows that God's Word is being proclaimed and that people from all walks of life are being given the opportunity to receive salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." - Matthew 28:19




The signs of the end times are evident in our world today. As Christians, we are called to be vigilant, discerning, and unwavering in our faith. These signs serve as warnings to keep our lamps burning, hold fast to the truth of God's Word, and eagerly await the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Let us not be caught unaware or led astray by the spirit of slumbering, the increase in sin, the love for self, or the falling away from the faith. Instead, let us be strengthened in our resolve to stand firm in Christ, share the gospel, and demonstrate His love to a hurting world.

Remember, our ultimate hope lies in the promise of Christ's return. As we see these signs unfolding, may we be encouraged, knowing that our redemption is drawing near. Let us continue to fix our eyes on Jesus, the author, and finisher of our faith, and be ready for His glorious return.
