There are big chunks of scriptures that give clear indications of what the signs will be to indicate that we are in the last days. Of course the critic and cynic would say, ‘give it a rest’ and generally mock Christians, discouraging a genuine search of what the Bible says about this important subject. So the Christian is on the back foot in actually considering a serious and comprehensive look at what the Bible says about the signs. I have seen it too often, young Christians having an appetite to know about this subject only to be discouraged, and also brought to task by more seasoned Christians telling them they need to deal with their lifestyle and concentrate on living for today. Yes this has merit, but not at the expense of being ignorant of what is to come.
There are four major areas where we can identify these signs. The World, the Church, the Nation of Israel, and Signs in the heavens. In each of these areas there are symptoms and signs recorded in the Bible, so when we consider the four areas together we have incredible clarity of where we are in God’s prophetic clock.
