We have plenty of evidence of moral and physical decay around us now. That seems very contemporary but actually it began much further back. God has spent generations patiently waiting for His creation to understand “the end of all things is at hand” began as the natural consequence sin set in motion way back in that First Garden. The blame game began there with the corruption of everything perfect God created. It’s too late now for questioning “why didn’t God…?” God did! Jesus is our beginning that overcomes “the end of all things” and validates our life and prayers through His Spirit in us. BC[before Christ] you were already “dead.”
I Peter 4:6 For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does. 7 The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. 8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
