Are you preparing for the coming of the LORD Jesus? Many people mistakenly believe that His return is far off, but that's not what the Bible teaches. In fact, there are many signs that indicate His coming is near.
Don't be caught off guard! Read on to learn what to look for so you can be ready when Jesus comes again.
The Increase in Knowledge
You've probably heard of the saying, "with knowledge comes power." It's a quote that's as true now as it ever has been. And it's especially relevant when it comes to the topic of the LORD's coming.
Think about it. The more you know about what to expect, the better prepared you'll be. That's why we're committed to providing you with all the information we can so that you can be ready for whatever comes our way.
Knowledge is power, and when it comes to the LORD's coming, it can be the difference between being ready and being caught off guard.
The Rise of False Prophets
You will also see a rise in false prophets. These deceivers will come in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. They will deceive many people with their lies, and as a result, the truth will be buried. But you must be careful. Do not be fooled by their clever words or their innocent appearance.
The Love of Money
People often wonder if the Lord is coming back soon. They look at the signs in the natural world and try to piece together what's happening. But there's one sign that is often overlooked, and that's the love of money.
In Jesus' day, the Pharisees were experts at figuring out when the Lord was coming back. But they missed the most obvious sign—the love of money. They were so focused on their own agendas and getting ahead that they missed Jesus standing right in front of them.
Are you so focused on making money that you're missing what's happening around you? The Lord is coming back soon, and He's not going to be happy with those who have let the love of money overtake their hearts.
The Increase in Wickedness
The Bible says that in the last days, there will be a great increase in wickedness (2 Timothy 3:1). Look at the world around us. Violence, immorality, and selfishness are rampant. People seem to have no regard for human life. Even innocent unborn babies are being killed every day. This is a sign that the end is near.
The Increase in Natural Disasters
There have been an unprecedented number of natural disasters in recent years. And while some people might say that this is just a coincidence, I believe that it's one of the signs that indicate the LORD's coming is near.
The Bible tells us that in the last days, there will be famines and earthquakes in different places (Matthew 24:7). And we're seeing this play out with all the droughts, floods, and other extreme weather events that have been happening around the world.
So if you're wondering whether or not the LORD's coming is near, I believe that this is one of the signs that indicate that it is.
The Wars and Rumors of Wars
One of the signs that Jesus gave us that His coming is near is the increase in wars and rumors of wars. When you look at the world today, it's not hard to see that this is certainly taking place.
All you have to do is turn on the news and you'll see story after story about different countries at war with each other. And it's not just traditional warfare that we're seeing, but also terror attacks and other acts of violence.
In addition to the wars that are taking place, there are also more and more rumors of wars. These are conflicts that have not yet erupted into full-blown war, but there is a lot of tension and it seems like it's only a matter of time before they do.
So if you're wondering whether or not the end times are upon us, this is definitely one of the signs that you should be looking for.
No one knows when the LORD will return, but there are some signs that indicate His coming is near. The important thing is to be ready, no matter when He comes.
