Since things are getting worse and worse in the world, is the devil working overtime?

The devil knows the Bible, so, he knows that his time is short. As time draws nearer and nearer to the return of Christ, the devil will continue to increase his efforts to keep people from trusting in the Lord.

Jesus described these last days for us. "You will hear of wars and rumors of wars ... Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places" (Matt. 24:6-7). Further, we are told to expect things to keep getting worse: "Evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived" (2 Tim. 3:13).

Because of Satanís increased efforts, we must work harder, too. It is the call to every believer to go and preach the Word. We must be witnesses for Christ in these last days, and we must keep ourselves ready to meet the Lord.
