4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.
9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Christ foretells signs of the end times and the rapid spreading of the gospel of the kingdom of God in the world. He tells us that the gospel will be offered worldwide but not received everywhere. And then shall the end come.
With the advent of the World Wide Web, there is not a corner of the world that has not been touched by the gospel of the Kingdom of God.
We have only to listen to the news to hear about natural disasters, deadly tornadoes, hurricanes and other catastrophes that plague the world in an ever-increasing and reoccurring number.
There has been ongoing wars in multiply countries for decades.
Wickedness has increased exponentially with the world’s new acceptance, tolerance and promotion of sexual immorality, sexual perversions and abominations.
There have been an ever-increasing number of false prophets coming on the scene with a different Gospel and salvation plan other than that which was first delivered by the apostles of Christ. Through Protestantism, Catholicism and other isms, many have abandoned the genuine Faith and practice hatred, segregation and discrimination against each other.
One has only to open his/her eyes to see that…
The Beginning of The End Has Already Begun.
