Are We Really Living in the Last Days?

In light of the cataclysmic events currently happening in our world, there are those that espouse that the end of all things is imminent. However, is this really what the New Testament teaches?
Jesus advocated something entirely different: “See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet” (Matthew 24:6). In His same discourse on the Mount of Olives, Christ elucidated what event will unequivocally usher in the end of the world: “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
An erroneous understanding of eschatology [end-time events] has produced a Church that is passively waiting on God to rescue them out of the world and take them to heaven when all along it is the Lord’s intention that the Kingdom of God as leaven would spread and fill the earth with righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. “He told them still another parable: ‘The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough’”(See Matthew 13:33).
