Jesus taught that certain things would point to His coming. We see many of those things taking place today. He said before He comes again we will hear of wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, and false prophets.
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” Matthew 24: 6-7,11.
God prepares us for His return, He let’s us know what to expect. Some people have predicted when Jesus will return. But no one knows except God.
“But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” Mark 13: 32
When He tells Jesus to come and get His children, then He is coming. The most important thing in our lives is to be ready when He comes.
