The end times are upon us. The signs are all around. Make no mistake. The end times are upon us. The signs are all around. Make no mistake. Generally, Thinking about the actual end of the world is scary, no doubt about it. But it doesn’t have to be!

There are four main Sign of end times

  1. The Sign of Deception

At the last days, Jesus said there would be an increasing danger of deception by false teachers. “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5). ). And the people willingly participated in this idolatry. They didn’t throw God out of their worship. Instead, they treated Him like He was one of many gods. The Israelites synthesized their religion with another. More and more people will search for leaders to deliver them, and they will seek mystics and religious leaders who claim to have deeper knowledge. Deception may be one of the greatest threats to the Church today, but it is nothing new. Before the religious reforms of ancient Israel’s King Josiah, the priests—God’s representatives to the people—set up idols to false gods in the temple (2 Kings 23:4)

For all the deception going on today, we cannot spend our time chasing down every rumor. Our time is better spent focusing on the solution, and that is Jesus Christ. In John 14:6, He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 8:32) said that” Through Him, we “shall know the truth, and the truth shall make [us] free

  • The Sign of Disputes Among Nations

At the end times Conflicts, border skirmishes, race wars, national battles, and general unrest will escalate. As dissension escalates, we can view it as a sign of the times. The book of Revelation tells us that conflict—ceaseless, unending, terrible war—will fill the Tribulation period, and it will escalate until the entire world is involved Jesus warned His disciples that the end of the age would be marked by “wars and rumors of wars” with nations rising against each other (Matthew 24: 6, 7).

In many countries there is at least one military weapon and four thousand pounds of explosives for every man, woman, and child on earth. In 2019, global military expenditures grew to an astonishing 1.92 trillion U.S. dollars. As shocking as this may seem, long ago the Bible predicted an escalation of conflict, border skirmishes, race wars, and national battles during the End Times.

  • The Sign of Devastation

Devastation is the act of devastating; destruction. Devastated state; desolation

Beside with the deception and disputes of the Last Days, Jesus warned of “famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places” (Matthew 24:7). According to the World Health Organization, there have been recent outbreaks of yellow fever, the plague, Nipah virus, meningitis, and many others. To make matters worse, “superbugs” are developing resistance to antibiotics. We are also witnessing an increase in the frequency and intensity of earthquakes.

We live in a day when we can scarcely turn on the TV without seeing someone trying to raise money to feed the hungry. Even though God has blessed us with a fruitful, abundant planet, millions of people in the world face food insecurity and scarcity. COVID-19 has raised global awareness of our vulnerability to novel diseases, but it isn’t the only outbreak in our world today.

  • The Sign of Deliverance Into Tribulation

The bible says that “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake” (Matthew 24:9). We are already seeing evidence of this today. Headlines carry stories about Christian business owners who are expected to set aside their beliefs in support of secular, progressive ideals. Over the World, the situation is even more sobering. During the 2021 World Watch List reporting period, Open Doors recorded the following crimes against God’s people:

  • More than 340 million Christians lived under high levels of persecution and discrimination
  • 4,761 Christians were martyred
  • 4,488 churches and other Christian-affiliated buildings were attacked
  • 4,277 believers were detained without trial, arrested, sentenced or imprisoned

The Word of God (Prophecy) reminds us that the deception, conflict, devastation, and tribulation of the Last Days is no match for Almighty God. When we experience terrible events like the COVID-19 pandemic and persecution, Scripture reminds us that God declares “the end from the beginning” and that His “counsel shall stand” (Isaiah 46:10).
