One of the things we studied at the conference was the nature of people during the last days. In 2 Timothy chapter 3, we read that men shall be lovers of their own selves. In verse 2, several characteristics are mentioned and all of these behaviors are a direct attack against the laws of G-d. The anti-christ is often called the man of lawlessness. People will be covetous (led by their flesh), boasters (exalting self, not G-d), and disobedient to parents (won’t submit to authority).
As we seek to become more holy, living a sanctified life, which is the process of becoming holy, let us be aware that we will become more and more UNLIKE the world and we can expect persecution.
