Jesus’ End Time Warnings

Jesus warned his disciples of the kinds of events that would mark what the Bible calls ‘last days’  that would immediately precede His return.  (Luke 21:25-28)  “And there shall be signs in sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the billows;
men fainting for fear, and for expectation of the things which are coming on the world: for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; because your redemption draweth nigh.”

When driving the interstate we all observe times that we are between cities where there are few signs.  As we approach a city, we begin to observe signs advertising hotels and attractions.  The closer we get, the more signs we observe that include gas stations, fast food restaurants etc.  The signs appear more and more frequently until we arrive at our destination.  So it is with the biblical signs of the end times.  We are literally seeing and experiencing those signs in our own lives today. 

Who can doubt that the nations of earth have entered a time of great “perplexity”?   When have we seen the massive destruction left from recent tsunami’s and earthquakes?  It is in this regard I keep my eyes on those events.  We are about to go from 2012 to 2013 and we are told of two comets that will pass by in the new year. 
So my friend, “look up, and lift up your heads; because your redemption draweth nigh.”
