Topic: Perilous Times
Opening Prayer: Father, save your children from the perilous times. Redeem all your children who become victims of the perilous times in Jesus’ name.
Previous Knowledge: “This known also, that in the last days, perilous time shall come”.- 2 Timothy 3:1.

Lesson Introduction
The translated word for “perilous” in 2 Timothy 3:1 is “chapelos”, which means troublesome, dangerous, harsh, fierce, full of risk, hazardous, harmful, dreadful, and threatening.

 

The term “last days”, refers to the period between Christ’s ascension into Heaven and His second coming. “Perilous times’ constitute part of the last days.

 

“The last days” is, not just a prophesy, it started from the days of the Bible (Heb. 1:2; 1 John 2: 18-19). The importance of prophecy and warning against the perilous times cannot be overemphasized because we are living in the fulfilment of the perilous times. The purpose of this study is to carefully consider the writing of Paul to Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:15 on the things that characterize the ‘Perilous Times’ and the position every believer in Christ could take.
