And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours 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.
Over 140 earthquakes have shaken the earth this week (today is 8-24-18) A 7.1 earthquake hit Peru, this morning.
The disciples wanted to know “what shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world. ”
Jesus gave them these signs to look for.
Surely all these signs are becoming more powerful, frequent, and intense, “like the labor pains of a woman delivering a child. ”
Wars and rumors of wars. We had rumors of war with North Korea, Iran, Russia in Ukraine, etc. This earth is covered with wars. Famines are going on in Yemen, Venezuela , Nigeria, Kenya, South Sudan, many places. We have Ebola in the Congo, Cholera in Yemen, Black plague in Madagascar. And many diseases spreading around the world.
Surely, we have entered that time of sorrows. We do not know how long this time period will last.
Then the Tribulation will start.
God is getting the attention of rebellious man.
Repent, and believe the Gospel and be saved today!
Believe you are a condemned sinner and have constantly broken God’s laws. Recognize the penalty for even offending God with only one sin is death in hell. James 2:10
Admit you can do nothing to save yourself. Ephesians 2:8,9
Realize that Jesus is God in the flesh and loves you. He took the penalty for your sins, and of the whole world, and paid for them with the sacrifice of His blood and body on the cross. He died for your sins, tasted death for every man, then after being dead in the grave, arose after 3 days.
You must trust only in Him to save you, not in your religion, not in your church, not in good works. John 14:6 says”I am the way, the truth, the life. no man comes to the Father but by me. ”
You must humble yourself, bow your head and by faith ask Him to forgive you and come into your heart and save you.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
