There are many Bible verses about the end of the world, but 2 Timothy 3:1-5 gives a shocking description. Some people view the world more positively than other folks. The older generation may say the world is a worse place now then when they were growing up. Regardless of your age or attitude in life, the last seven words in these verses offer excellent advice. Whether the world ends tomorrow or never ends in your lifetime, the people you associate with is very important. Below are these verses from the New International Version of the Bible that describe the last days.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God- 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
The World Today
Turn on the news today and chances are you will hear about terrible things. An example of these five verses was seen in one news story about a girl suing her parents. She was disobedient to her parents, ungrateful, and without love. Money and love of self was more important than anything.
You can make your brain hurt watching the news or dwelling on terrible things happening in the world. If you want to search the Bible there are many verses that can be plucked out that show negative aspects of our world and signs that the end of the world is coming.
Learn From The Bible
Students from any school can gain knowledge learned from books to help them in life. Bible readers can learn some really important things by just following instructions. If you read 2 Timothy 3:1-4 there are instructions on how not to have a good life.
Verse 5 gives easy instruction on how to avoid terrible times in the last days. Have nothing to do with people that practice the description in the first 4 verses. In addition, if you love God and do not deny the power of that love your life will be better. It seems like the Bible is a pretty good instruction book. Whether the world ends or goes on these instructions should create a better life.
