A continuation of A verse by verse look, through Romans 1:18-32, to show the time we are living in today. The Great Tribulation is very near, which makes the rapture even closer.

Continuing with Romans 1:28…
28 Furthermore, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, He gave them up to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.Romans 1:28 BSB
The moment that an individual—from the heart—decides to reject the Lord Jesus Christ, He will give that person over to their sins, which is a way to say that their chances of going to heaven have passed and they will end up in hell—which precedes the second death. The second death occurs after the Great White Throne Judgment of Christ when He will take all those from Hades and cast them into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:11-15).
29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice. They are gossipsRomans 1:29 BSB
Once their spiritual state has become finalized, they will no longer contain any restraint when dealing with their sinful nature. They will become the epitome of sin in the likeness of their god, Satan. In 2 Timothy 3, the Scripture says that in the end times, the people will grow cold and become so depraved that they will emulate the time of Noah (Genesis 6).
30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant, and boastful. They invent new forms of evil; they disobey their parents.Romans 1:30 BSB
Their hearts will grow so dark that they will speak evil of what is good. Anything that has to do with God—society will consider Him detestable because the people will embrace wickedness as their father and depravity as their mother. These evil people will show no respect for others or those in authority. Not only will that generation live in such a manner—they will even come up with new ways to make themselves more evil. Parents during those times will find themselves powerless to raise their children in the right way, as the culture will be so bad and so influential that it will instill in kids and young adults to adhere to Satan’s path rather than God’s. The degree of sins they will commit will make any face who sees it change as seeing something grotesque.
We are entering the time of the end, and if you think what you see now can’t get any more dangerous and immoral—unethical mandates and moral decay, God’s Word says it will get much worse.
This is the end of Part 4. Thank you for reading.
