Are We Living in the Last Days?

Q: Can You show me in the Bible that we are Living in the Last Days?

A: In Acts 2:16, Peter addresses the crowd on the Day of Pentecost, saying, “…this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days, God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days,… And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Peter said on the Day of Pentecost, they were witnessing the fulfillment of the prophesy of Joel (Joel 2:28-32) that The Holy Spirit would come upon all believers in the Last Days; so scripturally, The Last Days began on the Day of Pentecost; this is also the birthday of the church. Other synonyms with varying time lines are: The Church Age, The Age of Grace, The Parenthesis, and The Time of the Gentiles.

The whole period of time from the Day of Pentecost until ‘The Day of the Lord’, or Jesus’ Second Coming IS The Last Days. We are living in the Last Days and have been for nearly 2000 years. This scriptural Truth is vital to a correct interpretation of Revelation and End-Time events.
