This page is about
The Falling Away
during the end times
as seen in the Bible
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"
we present those verses mentioned above.
Matthew 24:10 AMP version
At that time many will be offended
[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
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.

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.
