If you take into consideration all the signs, there is no mistaking that our generation is living in the last days, nearing the second coming of Jesus. Problem is, Satan can see how close we are to the end of the world, which is why he brings certain people into the spotlight (like Harold Camping of recent times), proclaiming false dates for the second coming, which when those dates come and go, causes many people to turn away completely from the truth. The truth being that we are living in the end times. The Bible is very clear on that. We just can’t set specific dates for Jesus’ return. But we CAN know when the end is near … And we are certainly now seeing all these things”.
No man knows when the world will end. Indeed the time of the end of the world was not even communicated by the Father to the human nature of the Son (Matt.24,36). However, in the Gospels the Son of God does tell us of the signs which must come to pass before the end of the world. What are these signs and what conclusions, however hesitant, can we draw from them about the times in which we live?

The twelve signs that must come to pass before the end are given as follows:


1) Many will come in the name of Christ and deceive many (Matt.24,5; Mark 13,6; Luke 21,8)

2) There will be wars and rumours of wars between nations and kingdoms (Matt.24, 6-7; Mark 13,7-8; Luke,21,9-10).

3) The first sorrows will be in the form of calamities: ‘famines, pestilences and earthquakes in divers places’, fearful sights and great signs from heaven (Matt.24,7-8; Mark, 13,8; Luke 21,11).

4) Orthodox Christians will be delivered up, killed and hated by all nations (Matt. 24,9; Mark 13, 9-11; Luke 21,12-15).

5) Everywhere men will hate and betray each other (Matt.24,10; Mark 13,12-13; Luke 21,16-17).

6) Many false prophets will appear and deceive many (Matt.24,11).

7) On account of abundant iniquity (evil deeds and unrepented sin), the love of many will grow cold. Only those who endure to the end will be saved (Matt.24,12-13; Mark 13,13; Luke 21,19).

8) The Gospel will be preached throughout the world ‘for a witness unto all nations’ (Matt.24,14; Mark 13,10).

9) After this Jews will become Orthodox Christians (Romans 11,25-28).

10) Preparations will be made for the coming of Antichrist, called the son of perdition and the beast. Preceded by false prophets and false signs and wonders, Antichrist will be a master of illusion, of ‘shock and awe’, taking away people’s freedom, but making them think that they have been freed. He will persecute the true servants of Christ with rage and fury. The Temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt for him to be enthroned there in the place of Christ – hence his name ‘Antichrist’, he who comes in the place of Christ (Matt, 24,15-24; Mark 13,14-22; 2 Thess.3-11; 1 John 2,18; Rev.13,1-8).

11) Signs will appear in the heavens, the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from heaven, the sea and the waves will roar and the powers of heaven will be shaken (Matt.24,29; Mark,13,24-25; Luke 21,25-26).

12) The sign of the Son of man (the Cross) will appear in the heavens and then will take place the Second Coming of Christ with power and great glory. Angels will be sent and shall gather the elect together ‘from the four winds’ (Matt.24,30-31; Mark 13,26-27, Luke 21,27).


As we look at the above, we may be tempted to think that the first half of these signs, the first six, have already come to pass. Concerning the first sign, over the centuries many have indeed come, saying that they are Christ and they have deceived many. As regards the second sign, the twentieth century especially but also already the beginning of the twenty-first century, have been marked by ‘wars and rumours of wars’. The third sign, ‘natural’ (i.e. unnnatural) disasters, has been taking place, as ‘famines, pestilences and earthquakes’ are occurring all over the world. Fourthly, Orthodox Christians have everywhere been ‘delivered up, killed and hated’. The fifth sign has also appeared, for the modern world seems to be full of ‘hatred and betrayal’. Sixth, false prophets already abound and ‘deceive many’.

However, there are those who would go beyond this interpretation. They would say that we are now already three-quarters of the way to the end, with the revelation of the three next signs. For them, the seventh sign, iniquity, now abounds and the love of many is indeed growing cold. And the eighth sign too is now under way, for the Gospel is being preached throughout the world as, with the freeing of Russia and global population movements, Orthodox Christianity is now spreading throughout the world. A time is coming when there will be no man who has not heard of the Orthodox Church. As regards the ninth point, the fact is also that many Jews, in Russia at least, have in recent years been baptised into the Orthodox Church.

If this is the case, then we are now awaiting the preparation of the tenth sign. What can we say of this, the final preparation for the coming of Antichrist?

The signs of the end times is something that all end time prophecy students look for to find out how close we are to the second coming of Christ Jesus. Even many non believers are looking into this issue now, which shows there are significant changes going on in our world today. The Bible prophesies of many events that will occur in the end times. These events can be categorized as natural signs, spiritual signs, sociological signs, technological signs, and political signs. We can look to what the Bible says about these things, and if the signs are present in abundance, we can be certain that we are, in fact, living in the end times.

The bible teaches us that there is but one requirement for salvation, and it has nothing to do with anything you ever did or ever will do outside of trusting Christ. It has to do with what Jesus did on the cross. Paul and Silas are in the jail at Philippi, and are sprung out of their prison cell by a great earthquake sent from God. Almighty. The jail keep wakes up from his sleep, sees all the doors wide open, and presumes that all the prisoners that he was charged with have escaped. That would mean instant death at the hands of his superiors. he draws out his sword and is just about to kill himself when Paul cries out to “Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.”

“Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” The answer that Paul and Silas gave him is exactly how anyone gets saved in this age of grace thru faith that we live in.

Whether one believes the Bible or not, it is difficult to explain away these predictions coming to fruition. The ruthlessness, rise and spread of terror is unlike anything ever encountered on earth, and it’s just going to get worse. Society was supposed to become more civilized as humans advance, not less civilized. After the Holocaust, we said never again. Yet here we are barely over 70 years later, and not only are Jews being savagely targeted again, but Christians and more. There are plenty more signs expected to come to fulfillment next, ignore and mock them at your peril.

“We are standing on the threshold of the crisis of the ages. In quick succession the judgments of God will follow one another – fire, and flood and earthquake, with war and bloodshed”. (E.G.White, Last Day Events) This quote was made in 1914, and just look at what is happening in our world now! We are certainly in the end times! It is our prayer that you will seek the truth and make every effort to follow in the footsteps of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. GET READY! He is coming soon!

  1. In God’s word, there are a lot of clues as to when Jesus takes to his throne. Basically it boils down to 2520 years after the destruction of the temple in 607 B.C.E. The end of those 2520 years falls on October, 1914. God’s word never says Jesus will visibly return to Earth, in fact it does say he will NEVER return to Earth, but will rule it from heaven, along with his co-kings, co -priests, and co-heirs with God. It says he will return as he left, and he left obscured by clouds, unseen. His return was unseen. But we are in the end of the end timies, as Jesus’ return marks it’s beginning. He gave a shopping list of signs showing his presence, and all have been fulfilled. He also gave a list of signs for the beginning of the great tribulation, and only one has yet to be fulfilled, and it begins. It describes the U.N. as destroying Christendom and all who adhere to it. You can whine and argue and complain that your “church” doesn’t say that, but God’s word DOES say exactly that. His word does also teach several times, that all religions of man are false religion, and that we are to “flee” from them. He said they’re false religion, and His son said they’re “works of the flesh”. Revelation says they’re “Babylon the Great”.

    Think about it. No two religions have ever taught the same thing. No religion has taught the “one true faith” as Jesus taught it. That one true faith is the only real, true religion. All others are fakes, counterfeits, false religion. Wanna be religions. To God, they are an abhorrence.
