The Last Days – When?

The last days started with Christ’s first coming. How do we know this?

NIV – Avoid speculations

2 Tim 3:1 – vs. 5b – “last days” – turn away from these people (NKJV) – The last days were going on then.

Heb 1:1-2 – God used to speak in other ways, but in these last days has spoken by his Son Jesus. – The last days began with Jesus.

Jas 5:3, 9 – You’ve stored up treasure in the last days (NKJV); Judge is at the door (second coming), near. See NIV ftn. The last days were going on then.

2 Peter 3:2-5 – vs. 1 – remind you; vs. 2 – this man was predicted; vs. 3 – scoffers; vs. 4 – “no change” – vs. 5 “deliberately forget flood”
The last days were going on then.

Jude 16-18 – These ungodly people (vs. 4) are doing bad now – vs. 16

1 John 2:18 – this is the last hour – why? John writes: “Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrist’s have come” (NIV)

Many antichrists have come.
The last days were going on then. This was after the “Jewish system” was destroyed. The “last days” started with Christ’s first coming and end with his second coming.
