In the final hours of Jesus’ earthly sojourn in human flesh, He gave His disciples a quick survey of what would happen before He returned: wars, rumors of wars, nation against nation, famines, and earthquakes were all, Jesus said, just “the beginning of sorrows.”
Today, from our vantage point in the flow of history, we can see that nearly all of what Jesus warned about has come to pass, and just as He predicted, too. Thus, we surely are now living in “the end of the days” (Dan. 12:13). But not only do we not know when the end—climaxing with the second coming of Jesus—will come, we don’t need to know. We need to know only that it will come, and that when it does, we must be prepared.
