Signs of the Times
Prophecy in the News

Welcome! Have you noticed that reading the news lately is a lot like reading the Bible? It's amazing how many things the Bible foretold are now coming to pass right before our eyes. You don't need a prophet of God to tell you "the end is near." Jesus said you would know for yourself simply by observing the signs of the times.

The headlines below are linked to original articles. All scriptures are linked to the Bible Gateway so you can easily research context and choose different Bible versions.

"When these things begin to come to pass,
then look up, and lift up your heads;
for your redemption draweth nigh."

Luke 21:28

Times of Change: Chapters on Urban Jerusalem
If you say...
"People have been saying for thousands of years that the end is near!"
You yourself are fulfilling prophecy!

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Peter II 3:3-12

Now that you have seen evidence that the return of Jesus Christ is very near, even at the door, I beseech you to choose you this day whom you will serve. God loves you and He has a wonderful plan for your life. If you are a follower of Jesus you will not look upon the events that are coming with fear and trepidation. With faith in Him, you will long to be in his presence, face to face with God for all eternity in peace and joy beyond description. If you put off making a decision, you are still making a choice that has eternal consequences.
