Is this the end of the world as we know it?

I suppose for as long as there have been people on the planet, they have had a curiosity about what the future holds. And, with all of the chaos and crisis happening in the world today, many people have begun to question – are we living in the last days? Is the end of the world close at hand?
To those who are familiar with the Bible, they know that Jesus Himself did much teaching about the signs of the times that would take place before the end of the world. See Matthew 24 for a whole chapter devoted to the topic! He declared that in the last days, there would be political unrest, wars and rumors of wars, and an increase of natural disasters – including famines, earthquakes, and even tsunamis.
Perhaps the most telling sign of the times is the breakdown we see in relationships between people. Jesus said, “And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”
So, is the second coming of Jesus close at hand? Although the Bible says no one knows the exact day or hour, it does tell us that we can recognize the season. But whether Jesus returns during our lifetime or not, our job remains the same: Watch and be ready! And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the entire world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.
