'ENDTIME NATURE'

"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last day scoffers, walking after their own lust" - 2 Peter 3:3
.
The Holy Spirit, through His apostles, gave us insight into the characteristics of people who will be in the last day and Apostle Peter summarized their nature. 
.
In 2 Timothy 3:2-5, Paul described the signs you will notice in them and Peter summed it up - they are mockers walking after their own lust (desire).
.
Are you walking after your own lust?
.
Those who walk in their own lust are those who choose to live their lives according to their own desire but do not want to subject their desire to align with God's. These are those who do not want the Spirit of God to influence their lives but their carnal nature or the opinions of men.
.
Are you noticing the signs of selfishness, covetousness, boasting, pride, blaspheming, disobeying your parent, being ungrateful, unholy, false accusation, lacking self-control, fierce, despising those who are good, you love pleasure more than God and so on in your life? These are those who walk after what they desire.
.
Lust will draw you away from acknowledging God in the affairs of your life. And when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished brings forth death (James 1:15).
.
What are those lust that has become the order of your life? What are those lust that are influencing your relationship with your spouse or the opposite sex which is contrary to the will of God?
.
Repent so that you won't be left behind when the Son of man shall appear. Walk in the Spirit always so that you won't fulfill the lust of the flesh that leads to death in this world and in the world to come.
