Are We Living in the Last Days? – 2 Peter 1-3 – Skip Heitzig

Are We Living in the Last Days? – 2 Peter 1-3 – Skip Heitzig

When it comes to the last days or the end times or, for that matter, any Bible prophecy, there is no shortage of speculation and sensationalism. Every generation has its doomsday preachers predicting the end of everything, trying to fit current events into the predictive prophecy so prevalent in Scripture. Yet one day the world will end. So what are the last days and what are the characteristics of that time period? Let’s consider five features.

This teaching is from the series 20/20: Seeing Truth Clearly with Skip Heitzig from Calvary Church.

00:00 Introduction
08:13 Foreseen by Scripture
18:45 Focused on Christ
26:16 Filled with Apostasy
35:26 Framed by Skepticism
39:41 Faced with Hope

    so according to this Pastors own words, there was a great falling away 2000 years ago, that started from within the church.

    How do you know that you aren’t in this "fallen away church" that ended up being the Harlot?

    The prideful will be the first to respond.

    there is so much hate and evil out there, seperations in blood families over politics and other nonsense and people who only care about facts that are proven instead of having true faith , they only believe in mans science.

  5. P T T on August 22, 2022 at 1:10 am

    Not one person ever questions this message. Yet to Believe that Jesus has still not come you have to ignore all the time statements of Jesus and you have to ignore the writings of Josephus. You have to ignore the earmarks and signs of deception such as it benefiting the enemies of Christ and the mental excitement it stimulates. I will get lots of abuse for this because people want to believe the lie. They refuse to study and they have no clue how much Satan influences church teaching

    Bottom Line: We are all going to experience "The last day: we are all going to die."

  7. SkatieSadiemator on August 22, 2022 at 1:11 am

    Skip: "This world, this universe, this earth will one day come to end. Just like every person will an end, this world will have an end."

    The Bible: is. 45:18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.

  8. matt cranford on August 22, 2022 at 1:11 am

    I keep looking at a screen shot of 32:00, listening to what he says, and scratching my head as I compare this to Revelation 20:12-13

    Either this Preacher is lying or God is lying… I don’t know about you, but I’m not prepared to say that it is God who is lying.

    Come on people… WAKE UP!!!!

  9. John Graham on August 22, 2022 at 1:11 am

    Focusing on the last days rather than the Gospel is sending a LOT of ‘Christians’ straight to hell. Darby did nothing but interpret the Bible privately…WITHOUT the leading of the Holy Spirit.

  11. G Q on August 22, 2022 at 1:15 am

    Since the world begun, All life has been living in the last days! My Mom died January 12, 2020. That was her last day. When I died it will be my last day. When you die, it will be your last day! Stupid people!

  15. Calbenmike on August 22, 2022 at 1:21 am

    I heard a pastor once say, "We have been in the last days since the ascension of Christ."

    I have never forgotten it.

  16. Rob on August 22, 2022 at 1:21 am

    Oh no, not the old "End of the World" chestnut again? LOL! Religious nuts have been predicting that for hundreds of years and every date they named has passed without incident! Get real, people! This is the 21st century, not medieval times. By the way, is "Skip Heitzig" your real name?

  17. matt cranford on August 22, 2022 at 1:24 am

    everyone reading my words pause this, and go listen to what he says @ 3:52-4:20…

    Now ask yourself… how do you know that this already hasn’t happened? If you were born into a period of deception, how would you know?


  18. Mike Sharp on August 22, 2022 at 1:25 am

    No we are not. Unless you’re on your death bed than it’s not your last day. They been saying that for years. This is just newspaper preaching ain;t worth the time.

  19. Thomas Dickensheets on August 22, 2022 at 1:26 am

    I feel that we are in end times

  20. Old Eagle on August 22, 2022 at 1:27 am

    When the moon turns to blood and the sun goes away the earth shall come to an end some day! You better listen to what I say because Jacob’s trouble is on the way!

    8 But, beloved, *be not ignorant of this one thing,* that *one day is with the Lord as a thousand years,* and a thousand years as one day.

    God bless. Amen.

  23. Alexandra Stefi on August 22, 2022 at 1:29 am

    Wow! This preach opened my eyes to many things. In everyday life, living among unbelievers, I end up asking myself "Is the problem with me?"
    That is, people give me their version of how they look at life and they think I am abnormal and I end up asking myself such a question, when in fact the Bible speaks of the fact that in the last days the truth will be perverted. Congratulations on the sermon was and it is very constructive for my life. GBY ( sorry for my bad english)

  24. Paul Thomas Shepherd on August 22, 2022 at 1:32 am

    If the world is to "come to an end" then how will Jesus come and reign for the His biblical 1,000 years here? End of the world vs end of an era are two different statements.

  25. Paul Bates Bates on August 22, 2022 at 1:35 am

    We are in the last days. God gave me one word for 2022! Intense! This means everything we have seen in 2021 will be just intensified. More natural disasters, chaos, sickness and diseases. Calamity and division and these things will happen in a shorter period of time! Things will not go back to normal they will only proceed to get more intense until his coming. Prepare yourself for inflation and shortage of food and water.
    I also asked myself when will I stop believing in pretribulation. After the first seal is open, the last seal! God helps them who helps themselves! God will always do his part and we will have ours! Signs are there for a reason!

  27. PureLife on August 22, 2022 at 1:37 am

    What do you think about the hypothesis that the 7th head of Satan’s beast control system was the *OTTOMAN EMPIRE* ? I submit that it received its fatal wound in 1923 and will be revived in 2023. President Erdogan of Turkey has been working on its recreation as the Neo-Ottoman Order, and I wonder if that fits your eschatology. Thank you and bless your ministry!

  28. Mr. J on August 22, 2022 at 1:39 am

    So far every prediction regarding the end of the world has been wrong. It will probably end when due to a black hole….my prediction.

  29. audrey powell on August 22, 2022 at 1:39 am

    truthful Biblical teaching …thank you so much …

  30. fahad nazir on August 22, 2022 at 1:41 am

    Hi Brother and Sister Help me I’m very worried I really need help I’m just worried about my situation I’ve been worried for five years No one has helped me yet I also want to do something in my life Please help me God bless you all

  31. Gods Sheepknowhisvoice on August 22, 2022 at 1:42 am

    The time is not far distant…
    There are many, even of those engaged in this movement for Sunday enforcement, who are blinded to the results which will follow this action. They do not see that they are striking directly against religious liberty. There are many who have never understood the claims of the Bible Sabbath, and the false foundation upon which the Sunday institution rests.
    “Revelation 13:18. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

    The Number of His Name. – The number of the beast, says the prophecy, “is the number of a man;” and if it is to be derived from a name of title, the natural conclusion would be that it must be the name or title of some particular man. The most plausible expression we have seen suggested as containing the number of the beast, is the title which the pope takes to himself, and allows others to apply to him. That title is this: Vicarious Filii Dei, “Vicegerent of the Son of God.” Taking the letters out of this title which the Latins used as numerals, and giving them their numerical value, we have just 666. Thus we have V, 5; 1:1; C, 100 (a and r not used as numerals); 1:1; U (formerly the same as V), 5 (s and f not used as numerals); 1:1; L, 50; 1:1; I, 1; 500:500 (e not used as a numeral); 1:1. Adding these number together, we have just 666.

    False prophets do not exalt Christ. They rather draw attention to themselves. “Speaking perverse things,” they “draw away disciples” after themselves. Acts 20:30. To accomplish this, they teach in a manner to please the carnal mind of those who in their hearts “say to the seers, see not; and to the prophets, prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things.” Isaiah 30:10. These alleged prophets or teachers are “of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.” 1 John 4:5.

    Many do not see that they are striking directly against religious liberty. There are many who have never understood the claims of the Bible Sabbath, and the false foundation upon which the Sunday institution rests. egw

    ,Godbless, Pray and read your bible

  32. Paul Elliott on August 22, 2022 at 1:48 am

    Every generation believes, these are the end times. Children are born. My Grandmother believed, Jesus would return to earth in her lifetime, because of everything happening in the world. She died in 1980. My parents believed, Jesus would return in their lifetime. My father died in 2013, mom in 2015. I live my life, one day at a time. I pray to God twice a day, morning and evening. Do I believe God will return in my lifetime. No, I don’t.

  33. Ellisa Warren on August 22, 2022 at 1:48 am

    I will be ready for the coming

  34. matt cranford on August 22, 2022 at 1:48 am

    it’s stunning that this Pastor has the insight about us being in the end days… but still doesn’t know who 666 is warning us about… or who the False Prophet is…

  35. MACTV on August 22, 2022 at 1:50 am

    Matthew 24:37 
    As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

    Today you will see many countries are in flood like in the days of Noah the Earth was devastated by water.

    I thought it was a real cientific study not a stupid fairy tale

  39. mril80 on August 22, 2022 at 1:55 am

    "NO"! were not in the "Last Days", the Last Days only applies to the 1st Century followers of Christ, no modern people or current world events is supported within the Biblical text!

  40. Old man on a mission on August 22, 2022 at 1:57 am

    Would return by 500 AD … unreal……. I remember Jesus saying something in the lines of God will come like a thief in the night. No one will know the day, time, or the hour. Jesus doesn’t even know he will come again. Only god knows. So, don’t listen you what others wrote as it’s not worth the paper it’s written on.

  41. Michael Edwards on August 22, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Obviously, the tribulation period is near! Pope Francis is the false prophet of the Antichrist as is written in the book of revelations! So , the Antichrist will be on the world scene soon! The enforcement of the " Mark of the Beast" is sure to follow very siin!

  42. jean chapman on August 22, 2022 at 2:03 am

    I dont agree weve been in the last days for 2000 years you have to put everything together Israel had to be reborn (1948) also certain things have to be happening eg people traveling a lot and knowledge to be increased (the last 30-50 years have been amazing in new tech etc) the third temple being ready to be built in Jerusalem wars and rumors of wars (so many wars at the moment) This generation will not pass away which one ?? the one from 1948 so 1948 + 70 or reason of strength 80 years = 2028 (the second coming)- 7 years of tribulation = 2021 (for the rapture) yea now we are in the last days
