If you know the signs of the last days, you can stay alert and meet your Lord with love and joy!
This is a very important question. If you believe in Jesus, you do not want to miss those signs and be left behind. And the Bible clearly reveals to us what those signs of the last days are.
5 major signs of the last days:
Bible tells us that no one knows the hour or the day of the second coming of Jesus Christ. However, Jesus and Apostles talked about us knowing the times and seasons. It means we should understand the times and know if the season is close.
These signs are many. Jesus revealed to us some of them. Let’s take a closer look.
- Israel becomes a nation
It’s a major one. For 2000 years Israel was not a nation anymore. Bug God prophesied that in just one day it will become a nation once again! And it has already happened. In Gospel of Matthew 24:34 Jesus talks about one generation which would witness the coming together of Israel and His return. Back in 1948 Israel has become a nation once again. Despite the resistance and adversities God has brought His people back together.
- False teachings
It’s another key signs of the last days. We read about it in the 1 letter to Timothy 4:1-4. Jesus also spoke about the abundance of false prophets and false christs showing up before his Second Coming. And we see this taking place right before our eyes. So many people claim to be the “prophets of God”. They even try to do wonders and miracles. Many of them are just fooling people; others do some wonders, but they do not come from the power or the Spirit of God.
The problem is that many Christians are chasing miracles and prophets, instead of chasing Jesus and the Word of God.
- Earthquakes and other calamities
In Gospel of Matthew 24 Jesus also talks about various horrible things that would come upon the ungodly world. Now we witness earthquakes, floods, waves, droughts, etc. As never before such activities have increased and take away hundreds of thousands of lives all over the world.
- Wars and military conflicts
These were indicated in the Daniel’s prophesy (Daniel 2). The last kingdom would have strength of iron, but fragile as clay. Over the last centuries we have seen the bloodiest wars ever. Millions and millions of lives have been taken by them.
We read in the book of Revelation that the beast would install his symbol on people enabling them to buy and sell. Now we realize it’s the technology and micro chips which can be implanted into hands or foreheads of people. The technology is already in place and ready to be used. This surely testifies that the last days are nigh.
As you see, these 5 signs are major and we see all of them coming together in our times. We might be the generation to see the second coming of Jesus!
