This will be a basic overview ofrepparttar 140526 main end time events. I will then go into additional parts giving you a bit more detail into some of these specific events.

The problem is that allrepparttar 140527 verses pertaining torepparttar 140528 second coming of Jesus to our earth are all scattered throughoutrepparttar 140529 Bible. You thus have to search them out and then match them up to be able to see exactly what is coming downrepparttar 140530 road - just like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. God always seems to want to make you hunt and search for all ofrepparttar 140531 knowledge that is inrepparttar 140532 Bible. Seek and then you will find. The subject of revelations and end time events is no exception.

End Time Events - The Miscellaneous Signs

Written by Michael Bradley

1. Perrepparttar miscellaneous signs listed in my previous article, Jesus literally tellsrepparttar 140524 apostles face to face whatrepparttar 140525 signs are that will let us know when He is about ready to come back to our earth for His second coming. The verse is fromrepparttar 140526 gospel of Matthew and it reads as follows:
"Tell us, when will these things be? And what will berepparttar 140527 sign of Your coming and ofrepparttar 140528 end ofrepparttar 140529 age? And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My Name, saying ‘I amrepparttar 140530 Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, butrepparttar 140531 end is not yet.

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom And there will famines, pestilences and earthquakes in various places. All these arerepparttar 140532 beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound,repparttar 140533 love of many will grow cold. But he who endures torepparttar 140534 end shall be saved.

And this gospel ofrepparttar 140535 kingdom will be preached in allrepparttar 140536 world as a witness to allrepparttar 140537 nations, and thenrepparttar 140538 end will come." (Matthew 24:3-14)

2. Another verse onrepparttar 140539 false christs and false prophets that will come is also found in Matthew. It reads:
"For false christs and false prophets will ariseand show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible,repparttar 140540 elect." (Matthew 24:24)
3. Paul also talks aboutrepparttar 140541 state of man inrepparttar 140542 latter days and how bad man is going to get. Here isrepparttar 140543 verse:
"But know this, that inrepparttar 140544 LAST DAYS perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power." (2 Timothy 3:1)
4. Paul also states inrepparttar 140545 latter days that some Christians will be departing fromrepparttar 140546 faith due torepparttar 140547 influence of demons. The verse is found in 1 Timothy.
"Nowrepparttar 140548 Spirit expressly says that in LATTER TIMES some will depart fromrepparttar 140549 faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons." (1 Timothy 4:1)
