Signs of the “Last Days”: A Departure From the Faith

Signs of the “Last Days”: A Departure From the Faith

The Last Days will be characterized by a great departure from the Christian faith, with many who were formerly believers, falling away from Jesus. Paul wrote to the Christians at Thessalonica that this would be one of the ultimate “signs” of Jesus arrival to remove the church from the earth, and the beginning of the seven year Tribulation.

Paul warned: “That day” (the Day of the Lord), will not come unless the falling away (Greek: “Apostasia”, Departure from the faith) occurs first”.

Reent books by authors such as Kenneth Daniels, who claims to be a former believer and missionary in Africa, but left the Christian faith, are an example of just such a departure that Paul was writing about.
