Increasing Evil and Wickedness is a Sign of the End Times!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

The world is falling ever deeper into a dark pit, the bottom of which is unseen, yet what lurks below is not from above but is of the evil one.  The further into the darkness those of the world wander the less of the light they can see, they become more and more blinded to the truth and are more easily deceived.

Romans 1:28-32

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

And so it goes with the world of today, people who have turned their backs in rebellion to God have been given over to a debased mind, doing things which are not fitting.  Society at large has become evil and wicked, and those who follow the ways of the world will find it more and more difficult as time goes on to see what is right and what is wrong, more difficult to retain knowledge of God.

Not only do we see people of the world acting out in unfitting, evil and wicked ways, but we also see them approving of them!  They approve of unrighteousness, of unholiness, of evil and wickedness.

We see the world lusting after the desires of their hearts, fulfilling sinful passions, and performing despicable acts, people who are out of control, who have a lack of morals and values, who have a desire to follow the sin in their hearts rather than do what is righteous and holy.

The world is under the control of the evil one, and those of the world are under the sway of the wicked one.

1 John 5:19

We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

It’s no wonder we see the world headed in the direction that it is, that it seems as though the world is falling apart.  The closer we get to the return of Jesus Christ at His second coming the world will become more and more evil and wicked, people will lose self-control, they will harden their hearts, and they will seek the desires of the flesh.

The evil, the hatred, the violence that we now see happening in the world is not letting up my friends, and it won’t until Christ returns to earth!  And if you think that things are bad now just wait until after the Tribulation period begins. 

I truly believe that the church will be raptured out of here before that time begins, and if this is so could you even imagine what the world will look like at that time?!  Absolutely no morals, no values, no restraints!  If you think that the evil and wickedness is bad now just wait until that time comes.

The Tribulation period is a time of God’s wrath upon the world, not just the last three and a half years, the entire seven years!  Who would want to be around when the Antichrist is in power?  Or mass pestilence like we have never seen, or mass starvation?  It will not be a pleasant time on earth during any of the seven years, not only the last half as many believe.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The lawless one is the Antichrist my friends as spoken of by the apostle Paul.  He has all power, signs, and lying wonders, and will deceive those who are not saved.  God will also send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie, that they may be condemned.  Doesn’t sound like a fun time to be around!

I don’t know how much time we actually have left, but I don’t think that we have much!  And the way things are heating up in the Middle East between Iran, Russia, Syria and Israel, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a war break out soon, at the very least Israel attacking Iran in some fashion!

As the darkness increases the light becomes brighter, and the Son of God approaches even closer!  God will only wait so long before He pours out His wrath upon the wicked, just as He did with Sodom and Gomorrah, just as He did with the great flood in Noah’s day.  God has great patience, but take heed, He will not wait forever!  The time is soon coming, as is the rapture of the church and Christ’s second coming!

For those of you who think that I am being a chicken little crying out “The sky is falling!”, let me remind you that Jesus said people would be eating, drinking, and marrying as they do day in and day out.  In other words, people will be living their daily lives just as they are now, not believing that Christ’s return is soon, not believing that God’s wrath is soon upon them!  Everything seems just normal to most people, as if it will continue on this way forever.  But what most of them don’t realize is that they are running out of time!

2 Peter 3:3-4

knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

We have had too many prophetic biblical signs happen not to sit up and take notice, too many bible prophecies being fulfilled to not stop and wonder just what on earth is going on?!  And if people don’t wake up and take notice, if they don’t take God seriously, then it will be too late for them!

The abundance of natural disasters should be enough to wake people up but it’s not!  Even though there seems to be a pattern with these disasters, they strike in numbers, one right after the other, very strange and unusual.  Have we already forgotten about all of the blood-red water and rain?  How about all of the strange and unusual sounds?  Or the mass animal deaths around the world?  Even bridge collapses, train accidents, sink holes, and massive fires, all deadly, one after another!  Doesn’t anyone else other than me think that all of these events happening as they have seem out-of-place, out of the ordinary and strange? 

I for one believe that they are all signs of the end times, when nature itself is groaning in pain until the second coming of Christ!  I believe that the groaning will increase until the return of Christ, and this is partially what we see happening in the world all around us!  But I also believe that God is trying to get our attention, either by allowing these things to happen as they are or actually making them happen, either way I believe that they are from the Lord.

Romans 8:22

For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.

God is trying to get our attention, but are we listening?!  Is the world listening?  Unfortunately most people living in the world will find a worldly explanation for all of these events, whether scientific, natural, or coincidence, anything other than an act of God!

But God is the same today as He was yesterday and will be tomorrow.  Have we forgotten what He did to Egypt and the Pharaoh?  Have we forgotten about the Ten Plagues upon Egypt?  If God could do that then why couldn’t He do similar things now?!  He can and I believe that He is!

God is coming soon, what was written thousands of years ago is now coming to pass.  It’s been almost two thousand years since the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and I believe that this age is nearing the end of the path.

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  1. I agree with your article. I truly believe Antichrist is alive and waiting under the wings. Right now LA Airport are testing facial recognition and I think across the nation airports goal to complete by in 2020. That’s making sense because I’ve heard the rumor about Universal ID 2020, United Nations wanted all nations to be universal ID 2020 and get everything ready by 2030. Sounds like to me One World Government. I believe soon Israel will having WAR this year and it’s possible the rapture is very near, crossing my finger this year, I’m not setting the date but I tell you this, I honestly believe we will NOT be here 2020 to 2030. By the way, did you see Obama portrait? Very CREEPY!!!!!!

    • Thanks for your comment Jim!

      I agree that the Antichrist is waiting under the wings. I also believe Israel will more than likely be at war soon, and it could just be this year.

      I haven’t heard of the Obama portrait, where is it posted?

      God bless my friend! Maranatha!

  2. I agree with your assessment. And Scriptures’ says it best:
    Yet they say to God, ‘Depart from us, For we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.(Job 21:14)
    “For My people are foolish, They have not known Me. They are silly children, And they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, But to do good they have no knowledge.”(Jeremiah.4:22)
    We grope for the wall like the blind, And we grope as if we had no eyes; We stumble at noonday as at twilight; We are as dead men in desolate places. (Isaiah 59:10)
    They said to God, ‘Depart from us! What can the Almighty do to them?’ (Job 22:17). This mindset has permeated our existence (to dire consequences they cannot fathom as evil).

    “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.(Prov. 9:10). that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; (Colossians 1:10)
    Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, And find the knowledge of God. (Prov. 2:5)
    For in much wisdom is much grief, And he who increases knowledge increases sorrow (Ecc.1:18). Knowing the truth and exposing it is a risky business for people don’t care to hear it. You’re pointing their errs out of love but unfortunately it’s not seen that way.
    [ Guard the Faith ] …Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge— 1Tim 6:20

    that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, (Col 2:2)
    in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col 2:3
    who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1Tim 2:4)
    and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, (Col 3:10)

    We are given the knowledge of good and evil, it’s up to us to heed the one and avoid the other. And that can only happen with accepting Christ into our hearts.
    Knowledge has increased at warp-speed (just as Scripture’s predicted it would back in Daniel’s time). “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” (Dan 12:4) And yet not the knowledge of God.

    The introduction of AI (artificial intelligence), Crisper (gene manipulation), cloning,(did you know they have successfully clone monkeys and monkeys are primates as we humans are. wouldn’t be surprise if somewhere on this planet someone is experimenting cloning humans.) Then there’s holograms (which can project an image of anything somewhere else [even in the skies].) Drones (which can be considered as UFO’s). And this is just the tip of the iceberg we’re privy too. Which in my opinion, is the vehicle the dragon will use to invade our dimension. Talk about an invasion – aliens coming; their coming alright and they won’t be little green men, (Scripture tells us their demons; some are already here in people who give themselves over to the dark side.) Sounds like science fiction, right. But very much real. Oh! the world is evil and wickedness abounds. The deception is great. A crucified Christ, a resurrected Christ, God Himself pleads with humanity to come out of her. Are we listening..?.. heeding His Word..?..

    It’s unbelievable as you point out Gordon, that people just don’t see what’s in front of their eyes. The subliminal signs/messages have been imprinted in our minds for a long time, via every media source available to hide the truth. They mark it down as fables the things of God and believe themselves to be gods. God is the only truth and the sooner we realize this the better we’d be to handle the onslaught that’s approaching and in some cases already here. As you also point out it’s only going to get worst. God bless us all to understand, to open our eyes to what we’re up against and the strength of His armor, He alone can give us to combat it. Jesus hear our prayer in Your name we ask, Amen.

    Thank you Gordon for letting me vent. God bless you and all of us to stay on the short and narrow for we are living in ‘the time of the end’. This chapter is indeed coming to a close in world’s history, a new millennium is coming, where Christ is our rightful king! Keep hope alive! Keep the faith, always looking up.

    • Thanks for your comment SweetJava!

      The world is indeed being deceived my friend, and unfortunately so are many believers! We must be strong and hold fast to the truth of God’s word, being led by the Spirit of Truth. Wisdom and understanding only come from God, may the good Lord reveal Himself more and more to us each and every day!

      God bless my friend! Maranatha!

    • Thanks for your comment Nathanlovesvalerie!

      Thank the Lord that there are many of us who can see what is taking place in this world, that we are eagerly awaiting the return of our Lord and Savior to come take us home!

      God bless! Maranatha!

    • Thanks for your comment churchesrevolution!

      It is literally getting worse by the day as is the increased persecution of believers, for those who know the truth and speak the truth, for those who attempt to uncover the darkness and expose it to the light. Yes brother, we must continue to watch and pray daily, as the world turns darker the closer we get to the rapture of the church!

      God bless! Maranatha!
