Exposition: Conditions Prior to the Rapture

2 Timothy 3:1 describes the days of the rapture, the last days, as perilous times for reasons that become readily apparent. The earlier discussion of Sodom and Noah showed these people would be:

  • Oblivious to the coming danger
  • Ignoring all warnings
  • Continuously thinking only of evil
  • Given to fulfilling the desires of the flesh especially drunkenness, gluttony, and sexual indulgences (outside of marriage, deviant acts, and with both sexes)
  • Marrying and remarrying freely
  • Materialistic

Elsewhere, the Bible describes people of this time as:

  • Lovers of their own selves (love of self displaces all other loves) (2 Timothy 3:2)
  • Covetous (2 Timothy 3:2)
  • Boasters (2 Timothy 3:2)
  • Proud (2 Timothy 3:2)
  • Blasphemers (2 Timothy 3:2)
  • Disobedient to parents (2 Timothy 3:2)
  • Unthankful (2 Timothy 3:2)
  • Unholy (2 Timothy 3:2)
  • Without natural affection (natural forms of love have disappeared such as parents for their children, spouses for each other, natural sexual attractions, and Godly affections) (2 Timothy 3:3)
  • Trucebreakers (even refusing to enter truces or reconcile) (2 Timothy 3:3)
  • False accusers (2 Timothy 3:3)
  • Incontinent (no self control) (2 Timothy 3:3)
  • Fierce and merciless (2 Timothy 3:3)
  • Despisers of those that are good (2 Timothy 3:3)
  • Traitors and betrayers (2 Timothy 3:4)
  • Heady (headstrong, passionately self destructive) (2 Timothy 3:4)
  • High minded (prideful) (2 Timothy 3:4)
  • Lovers of pleasures (sin - Hebrews 11:25) more than lovers of God (2 Timothy 3:4)
  • Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof (2 Timothy 3:5)
  • They creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts (2 Timothy 3:6)
  • Curse their father (Proverbs 30:11)
  • Do not bless their mother (Proverbs 30:11)
  • Pure in their own eyes but not washed from their filthiness (Proverbs 30:12)
  • Teeth as swords and teeth as knives to devour the poor and needy (Proverbs 30:14)
  • Many false prophets and doctrines (Luke 21:8)
  • Fight many wars (wars and rumors of war) (Luke 21:9-10)
  • Persecute the religious (righteous) (Luke 21:12-16)
