What signs will there be for Jesus’ return?


Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3
            While certain cultural and spiritual declines will prompt Jesus’ return, for the most part He will come as unexpectedly as a thief breaking into your house.
            Take the story of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah.  The cities and the world had spiraled into an “every man for himself” mentality, with everyone doing whatever they wanted.  That’s certainly a sign for our times now, but it can get worse.  Jesus is patient about His return, not wanting anyone to perish.
            We should be paying very close attention these days.  Our guard must be up.  We must get ready and preparing.  While the signs are there, we’ll never know for sure.
