1. There are certain signs that are intended to cause us to realize the nearness of Christ’s second coming.
The Bible says in Luke 21:28 “Now when these things begin to happen, look up And life up your heads. because your redemption draws near.”
2. No man knows when the second coming is going to be. But there are general Signs.
The Bible says in Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour no man knows, not Even the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
3. Fear among people.
The Bible say’s in Luke 21:23 “men’s hearts failing them for fear and the expectation Of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will Be shaken.”
4. Moral laxness and an unhealthy appetite for pleasure.
The Bible say’s in 2 Timothy 3:1-4 “But know this, that in the last days perilous Times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, Proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, thankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, Slanders, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, Lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of good.”
5. False Peace.
The Bible say’s in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 “But concerning the times and the seasons Brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know Perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains on a Pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.”
The Bible say’s in James 5:1-3 “Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your Miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments Are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a Witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure n the last Days.”
The Bible say’s in 2 Peter 3:3-5 “knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the Last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise Of His coming? For since the Fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were From the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word Of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,”
The Bible say’s in Matthew 24:6 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end Not yet.”
9. Knowledge greatly increased and frantic way of life.
The Bible say’s in Daniel 12:4 “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the Book until the time of the end, many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall Increase.”
10. What must take place before Christ’s returns.
The Bible say’s in Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached In all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
11. Since we have no idea when the exact time of Christ’s coming will be, then we Must be spiritually prepared.
The Bible say’s in Mark 13:33-37 “Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not Know when the time is. It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house And gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the House is coming-in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the Morning-Lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I Say to all: Watch!”
