It is very apparent that we are living in the last days. Speaking of the coming of the Lord and the catching-away of the saints, Paul wrote:
Do not let anyone deceive you in any way. For that Day will not come unless a falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself as God (2 Thess. 2:3-4).
