The term “End Times” means that life as you know it is about to end, that the end of the earth is not far off, and that you have a choice to make about where you will spend eternity.
You might look around and see all the wars, climate change, earthquakes, famine, pollution, new viruses, corruption etc. and wonder if the earth can withstand much more. Many secular people believe it is end times just based on those facts alone. There are many books in the Bible that prophesy events to come. The main ones are Revelation and Daniel but prophesies are found throughout the Bible. What does the Bible say will bring about the end of the earth as we know it? And…are we in those times now? The answer is emphatically yes, we are. Below I list 15 main things that occur as we enter end times. There are many more. We stand on the threshold to this open door that will not and cannot be shut. As you read through you may be scared and even feel a little hopeless. Don’t be. While I want you to be aware of what is happening, please know there is GREAT HOPE for those who choose it. I will explain more in the other tabs (Does God Care? How to Know Him).

When speaking of end times Jesus said this:
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 rumours 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. (Matthew 24: 4-8)
The book of Revelation (the last book in the New Testament of the Bible) talks about how this earth will end. It was transcribed from a vision God gave to the Apostle John about 2000 years ago (AD 96). John wrote in the “Prophetic Perfect” – that means it is written in the past as if it has already happened – yet it hasn’t happened yet. Why? Because only humans are stuck on this timeline – God knows already what will happen, and indeed has already happened in his eyes. He gave that revelation to John all those years ago to warn us what is to come. (God ALWAYS warns of impending doom via his prophets) Over the ages people have tried hard to understand this book and while the main points were obvious (God wins the fight against evil for all time!!) it was hard to understand the details. Now the details are becoming agonizingly clear.
Christians who are paying attention and know their Bible agree we are living in “End Times”. How can we be sure? The birth pangs Jesus mentioned above are the beginning but as the age turns there are large signposts and events that signal the speeding up of the end. To see what the major signs are Click Here.
