Are we living in "the latter days"? This applies not only to the nations of Israel and Judah, but also to the church. The church is going through this as a forerunner to what the nation will go through under much more horrible terms and conditions. What has come upon us is tiny and insignificant compared to what will descend upon the nation. These prophecies will be carried out fully against them. God will chasten the leadership of the nations of Israel far worse than He has chastened us.
John W. Ritenbaugh
In the latter days, do we understand it perfectly? What God is performing and executing right now, throughout His whole plan? Or, are we presumptuously saying that everything is going to be okay? That we are all right, that we are spiritual, that we are on God's good side, that we have God's favor?
