What Type of Events Characterize the Last Days?

SEARCHING...

More than once, someone has posed a question about the type of events one can expect to see during the last days of the end times.

While there are a NUMBER of different incidents detailed in God’s Word, almost ALL of those events are similar in one regard.

First, the details.

Jesus (when He walked the earth the first time) warned of false prophets which would appear before He returned.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”
–Matthew 24:3-5

Jesus ALSO warned men to give heed to wars, earthquakes and other ‘natural disasters’–though these would be signs that the end is near, NOT that the end had arrived.

“But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.”
–Luke 21:9

“And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.”
–Mark 13:7-8

According to God’s Word, immediately after the string of natural disasters, the followers of Jesus will be the target of the modern world’s hatred.

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.  And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”
–Matthew 24:9-10

After another warning about false prophets (Fake men of God must certainly be an important part of the end times!), Jesus touched upon man’s complete cruelty to his fellow man.

THEN Jesus Christ told when readers would KNOW the end had arrived.

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
–Matthew 24:14

So, that’s the short version of what will take place during the last days before Jesus returns.

Was the reader paying attention?

NOW: about how are all of those events related?

They are ALL events (wars, earthquakes, persecutions) which stir up FEAR and ANXIETY among other men.

IS the reader STILL paying attention?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
