Are We Living in “the Last Days”?

Jehovah knows what the future holds. (

    Hello guest!

Soon after he received Kingdom power, Jesus took action. “War broke out in heaven,” says the Bible. “Michael [another name for Jesus] and his angels battled with the dragon [Satan the Devil], and the dragon and its angels battled.” Satan and his wicked angels, the demons, lost that war and were cast out of heaven to the earth. 

God’s faithful spirit sons rejoiced that Satan and his demons were gone. Humans, however, would experience no such joy. Instead, the Bible foretold: “Woe for the earth . . . because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.”—

Please notice what would result from the war in heaven. In his fury, Satan would bring woe, or trouble, upon those on earth. As you will see, we are now living in that time of woe. But it will be relatively brief—only “a short period of time.” 

Even Satan realizes that. The Bible refers to this period as “the last days.” (

) How glad we can be that God will soon do away with the Devil’s influence over the earth! Let us consider some of the things foretold in the Bible that are happening right now. These prove that we are living in the last days and that God’s Kingdom will soon bring everlasting blessings to those who love Jehovah. First, let us examine four features of the sign that Jesus said would mark the time in which we live.

 •“Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.” (

Paul said that people would be

  • lovers of themselves
  • lovers of money
  • disobedient to parents
  • disloyal
  • having no natural affection
  • without self-control
  • fierce
  • lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God
  • having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power

 • “This good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth,” said Jesus Christ in his prophecy about “the conclusion of the system of things.” (Read

“Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God will come, He answered them, “The kingdom of God is not coming with something observable;  no one will say, ‘Look here!’ or ‘There!’ For you see, the kingdom of God is among you.” Luke 17:20,21

“The Pharisees and Sadducees approached, and as a test, asked Him to show them a sign from heaven.

He answered them: “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy because the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to read the appearance of the sky, but you can’t read the signs of the times. An evil and adulterous generation demands a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” Then He left them and went away.”  Matt 16:1-4

“Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.”

Does the birth of God’s Kingdom come from Satan’s world? 

Job 14:4 - Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?
No one!

Satan’s world does not give birth to the Kingdom, instead, it is the “woman”/New Covenant. Rev 12:2; Gal 4:26; Eph 4:13; Rev 12:5; 9:4; 7:3; Jer 25:29-34

John 18:36 -  “My kingdom is not of this world,” said Jesus. “If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I wouldn’t be handed over to the Jews. As it is, My kingdom does not have its origin here.”

“They are not of the world,
as I am not of the world.”  John 17:16

Eph 6:12 –  “For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.”

The signs of the Great Tribulation comes upon God’s anointed ones, his “kings”.  These “kings” and their “nations” are at war – spiritual kings who have either fallen for Satan’s lies, or are strictly sided with Christ and truth. Rev 16:14; 19:19 They war against one another.  Rev 17:2,12,14,16-18; 11:7; 19:11,14; 2 Cor 10:4

Rev 17:6; 18; 18:24; 2 Pet 3:10

The food shortages and pestilence of Matt 24:7 and Luke 21:11 is outlined in Amos 8:11, the lack of truth and its resulting sickness.  Ezek 28:23,24; Isa 5:13; Hos 4:6; Rev 16:2,11; 2 Thess 2:11,12; Rev 2:21-23; Rev 18:8; (Rev 12:15,6,14)

Jesus spoke in parables.  If we were to look into Satan’s world for the understanding of these signs, what need would there be for parables?  This is where our exertion is vital to get through the narrow gate, putting our full reliance on the Father for His Spirit to help us see.  Matt 13:10-15

The “earthquakes” experienced by God’s anointed ones as the “labor pains” continue until the birth of God’s Kingdom, are the spiritual upheavals we all face when realizing that what we believed as truth, is instead, the lie.  2 Thess 2:11,12

"I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.  And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Jer 24:2,3;29:17; Isa 34:4; Matt 25:2;24:29

 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. Isa 34:4; Mark 13:24,25  15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” Rev 6:12-17

It is the separating taking place during the harvest of the wheat and the weeds – the heart’s inclination to either truth or lies.   Ezek 38:19; Zech 14:4,5; Matt 13:39,41,49; Mal 3:18; Heb 12:27

“When they persecute you in one town, escape to another. For I assure you: You will not have covered the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.”  Matt 10:23

Within the realm of spiritual Israel – the anointed ones -  is where we look for the signs of the coming Kingdom.  Matt 10:6,7; 24:33

It is too easy to see what Satan is doing in his world.  Since Satan desires to take down Christ’s seed (Gen 3:15) it is clear that he would divert the attention of the real war at hand by creating the scenario of Jesus words as a literal fulfillment, and not a spiritual one.
