Falling Away

This page is about

The Falling Away

during the end times

as seen in the Bible


Matthew 24:10,

2 Thessalonians 2:3,


1 Timothy 4:1.


And this page talks about

How Not to Fall Away from God.


We present a short


on the topic.


And then we give

Inspiration to help us

Stay Close to God.


And then we have

A Word Study on the concept of "Falling Away"


But first

we present those verses mentioned above.


Matthew 24:10 AMP version

At that time many will be offended

and repelled

[by their association with Me]

and will fall away

[from the One whom they should trust]

and will betray one another

[handing over believers to their persecutors]

and will hate one another.

Some translations of Matthew 24
do not use the words "falling away"
so I present more about that at the bottom of the page.

2 Thessalonians 2:3 a NKJV 

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first,

1 Timothy 4:1 NKJV

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.


How not to be

part of 

The Falling Away

Why do people fall away in the end times?

Or using the words of 1 Timothy 4:1...

Why do people depart from the faith in the latter times?


Here are some reasons.

Persecution - Physical or Mental or Emotional

Affliction / Troubles

Ungodly Peer Pressure


False Prophets lead many astray. 

(See our False Prophets of Today  page)

False Teachers lead many astray. 

Lack of Bible study so people wander away.

Lack of Prayer so people wander away.

Lack of Growth in spiritual maturity.

Lack of Dedication to God.

Below we have

Inspiration for Staying Close to God.

Prayer for Yielding

Glorious Lord, Mighty God,

I worship you.

You are my King.

You are my everything.

I give my life to you.

Reign in me.

In my happy times, you are my joy.

In my unhappy times, you are my strength.

I will yield to you so you can reign in me.

Greek Word Study

Since several main Bible translations 

do not use "falling away" in 

Matthew 24:10.

So I have given you help to do a study for yourself

concerning that verse.


The website

Bible Hub

is a good resource for

studying the Greek words used to translate the Bible.

I have given you


to the two pages that are

foundational for those who want to check things out.


First Link


The Greek word translated "to fall away" in Matthew 24:10

is Strong's Greek # 4624. 

Actually some translations

do not choose to use the words "to fall away."

For example, KJV uses the words "be offended."

You can look up the Greek word # 4624

in the link below

and gain insights ...

Second Link


On the page directly above,

we can read all the ways

this Greek word

is translated in the

New American Standard translation

(known as NAS or NASB).

I have copied those ways below the yellow arrow.

Notice "fall away" or "falls away"

is the choice that

NAS translation

uses 7 + 1 = 8 times total

in its translation for the Greek Word # 4626.


Below are all the word choices


used to translate the Greek word # 4626

in its

entire translation of the New Testament

cause (1), cause...to stumble (2), causes (2), causes...to stumble (6),

fall away (7), falls away (1), led into sin (1), makes...stumble (2),

offend (1), offended (1), stumble (3), stumbling

(1), take (1), take offense (1), took offense (2)
