End Time Signs

.

Even though many of the following subjects have been occurring in some form for centuries, the Bible tells us that as the Rapture draws near and the Tribulation ensues there will be a simultaneous escalation in frequency and intensity of these events, just like a woman having increasingly strong 'birth pangs' during childbirth, which is exactly why Jesus used that term in His description of the signs:

"All these [signs] are the beginning of sorrows [birth pains]." (Matthew 24:8)

Therefore, there are two points to consider with the list: First, the Rapture is a signless event (1 Corinthians 15:52a). Nothing specific has to happen for it to occur, so second, when we see these events increase, and we're seeing that in the news every day, we know that it is near (Matthew 24:33).
