Saint Paul Said In Second Letter to Timothy
Feast Day: June 29
~The Last Days~
2 Timmothy 3:1-5
1 Remember that there will be difficult times in
the last days. 2 People will be selfish, greedy, boastful,
and conceited; they will be insulting, disobedient to
their parents, ungrateful, and irreligious; 3 they will be
unkind, merciless, slanderers, violent, and fierce; 4 they
will be treacherous, reckless, and swollen with pride;
they will love pleasure rather than God; 5 they will hold
to the outward form of our religion, but reject its real
power. Keep away from such people.
14 Then Peter stood up with the other eleven
apostles and in a loud voice began to speak to the
crowd: "Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem,
listen to me and let me tell you what this means.
15 These people are not drunk, as you suppose;
it is only nine o'clock in the morning. 16 Instead, this is
what the prophet Joel spoke about:
17 'This is what I will do in the last days, God
says: I will pour out my Spirit on everyone. Your sons
and daughters will proclaim my message; your young
men will see visions, and old men will have dreams.
18 Yes, even on my servants, both men and
women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and
they will proclaim my message.
19 I will perform miracles in the sky above and
wonders on the earth below. There will be blood, fire,
and thick smoke;
20 the sun will be darkened, and the moon will
turn red as blood, before the great and glorious Day of
the Lord comes.
21 And then, whoever calls out to the Lord for
help will be saved.'
