The Final Chapter

Many people today believe that we are in a “when SHTF scenario.” This is nothing new. It was actually written about thousands of years ago in the Bible. The Bible gives us many signs which warn us of the coming end of the age. We are also told we will not know the time of the actual end of the world as we know it. However, God must have wanted us to recognize when that time is coming or He would not have provided us with the information contained in the Bible.

It is increasingly obvious, to me at least, the time of the Lord’s coming is drawing near. Prophecies from the Bible are being fulfilled frequently, and at a faster pace than ever before. You do not have to be a “believer” in Jesus Christ or God to read these prophecies and and not see the correlation today.

Below is a glimpse of the prophetic signs God gave us as a warning of the approaching end of the age. Many of them are being fulfilled now and many will be fulfilled in the near future. I would encourage you to look with an open mind and make your own opinion.

There are many more verses and much more information in the Bible that talks about the end of the age but below I have provided you with 6 signs that Jesus indicated would allow us to see the end of the age approaches.

In Matthew 24:3 Jesus was asked, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?” Jesus told his apostles to look for the following signs prior to his second coming and the end of the age.

  1. FALSE PROPHETS AND CHRISTS

    Matthew 24:5 – For many will come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and will mislead many.

    Matthew 24:11 – And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many.
    In the last several years many have claimed to be the Messiah. Jim Jones and David Koresh come to mind and are examples of a false christ. There are many others who have come but never made the front page news. These false prophets are a prelude to the antichrist. The antichrist is said to be the one who will usher in world peace.

  2. WARS

    Matthew 24:6 – And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.
    Rumors of wars in all areas of the world now occur frequently thanks to instant media coverage and the availability of a multitude of 24-hour news sources.

    Matthew 24:7 – For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. More people have been killed in warfare in this century, more than any other time in history. The death toll continues to rise in the Middle East, and more and more countries are working to develop weapons of mass destruction. Add to that the expanding threat of terrorism and the potential for the outbreak of war exists in nations, kingdoms and places across the globe.

  3. FAMINES

    Matthew 24:7 – For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
    The undernourished of the world exist in every nation. A large portion of the worlds 5 billion people suffers from food shortages.

  4. EARTHQUAKES

    Matthew 24:7 – For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
    The number and intensity of earthquakes this century is at a level higher than any other time in history. The recent earthquake in Nepal is a prime example. The aftershocks wold have been full fledged earthquakes anywhere else in the world. A staggering number of seismic events occur around the world on a daily basis.

  5. TRIBULATIONS

    Matthew 24:8-9 – But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of my name.
    Christians are under attack throughout the world today. ISIS and other splinter groups are becoming more and more bold in their persecution and killing of Christians. Even in the United States Christians are being targeted for persecution in many areas. However, in other countries such as China, Sudan, Africa, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, Russia, and many Muslim nations, Christians suffer much greater persecution and often times death for their faith. During the tribulation this suffering will be worldwide and will continue even to the point of martyrdom.

  6. THE GOSPEL WILL BE PREACHED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

    Matthew 24:14 – And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.
    This prophecy has already been fulfilled through television, radio, missionaries, the translation of the Bible into many languages, as well as the internet. People all over the world now hear the message of Christ from missionaries who have the means to travel the globe, and via technology that allows us to communicate with people on the other side of the world right from our own homes, churches and offices.

The Bible says that if you repent of your sins and receive Jesus Christ into your life as Lord and Savior, you will be saved from eternal punishment in Hell when you die. To repent means that you truly feel regret or remorse for them.

So I would ask, suggest, encourage, beg, you to receive Jesus Christ into your life as your LORD and Savior and you will be saved from the torment of and eternal Hell.

In the end it will not matter how much ammo you have, how many guns you own, how many meals you have stocked, whether you live in the woods or in the city. In the end one thing is certain, we are going to die.

How does one get “saved” and “born again?” How can you receive eternal life so that you will be saved from the torment of and eternal Hell and instead live eternally with the God of all creation?

  1. Admit that you are a sinner.
    The Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
  2. Know that God has already provided a way for your salvation.
    “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ] that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
  3. Understand that you can do nothing to save yourself.
    “Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us” (Titus 3:5).
    Repent of your sins.
    “Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).
  4. Ask Jesus Christ to save you.
    “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13) and “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
  5. Proclaim Jesus before others.
    “If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness: and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9, 10).
