For nation shall rise against nation...Nations shall arise,
many die without goodbyes,
lead to death by lies!
Signs of the Times...
- False Christs...
- Wars & rumours of wars...
- Nation against nation...
- Kingdom against kingdom...
- Famines & Pestilences...
- Earthquakes in diverse places...
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 the 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.Matthew 24: 3-8
Remembering first... that the reference to the end of the world is a mis-translation of the word aeon & that it is the end of the age that the Lord Jesus Christ was referring to. All the signs mentioned are self-explanatory to those who watch television & read newspapers. The abundance of religious cults, wars & conflicts, continual pestilences, (despite the fact that medical science considered all infectious diseases had been brought under control back in the 1970's).
The continual threat of earthquakes in diverse places, with associated volcanic eruptions, cause scientists to seek a reliable means of detection & warning.
These are the beginning of sorrows!
"From time to time, as we all know, a sect appears in our midst announcing that the world will very soon come to an end. Generally, by some slight confusion or miscalculation, it is the sect that comes to an end."- ILN, 9/24/27 G.K. Chesterton

Signs, (also known as the beginning of sorrows) are a warning...of the coming Great Tribulation...
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.Matthew 24.21
Then, looking beyond the Great Tribulation...the Blessed Hope!
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.Matthew 24:29-30
