Scripture Passage: Matthew 24
According to the Scriptures, Christ will return. Prophecy is an often talked about topic and often looked at incorrectly.
When is the return of Christ? This is a question we all would like to have answered.
When will He return? Scripture doesn’t tell us the day but it does give us some signs that point us to the return of Christ.
The Bible points of signs that indicate the season of Christ’s return.
- Cults | There have always been cults that easily deceive people and turn them away from Christ. The explosion of cults has taken place in the 20th Century.
- World Politics | Wars and Rumors of wars. Kingdom against Kingdom. During the 20th Century over 100 million people have died in wars.
- Natural Disasters | The Bible says there will be earthquakes, famine, floods, plaques. These have happened for years but the intensity has increased year after year.
- Christian Persecution | over 200,000 people annually suffer for their faith in Christ. Persecution of Christians is rampant around the world.
- Apostasy | The church is declining around the world. Never would we have thought that churches would accept homosexual ministers, same sex marriages.
- Breakdown of Society | America has become the moral polluter of the world. For example the movie “Gone with the Wind” was held up because the movie had a curse word in it. Recently a movie from Hollywood, “The Wolf of Wall Street” has one particular curse word 506 Times!
- Proclamation of the Gospel | Finally some good news. In all the horrific signs of His coming there will be the proclamation of the Gospel. Never before has the Gospel been proclaimed to so many people. Over 90% of all the people in the world have access to the Bible in their language.
He is coming again! Are you ready?
