End-Time Prophecy: Is Jesus Coming Back?

Jesus’ end-time prophecy was a sign for us to know that this present world will come to an end one day. There are arguments about the reality of the end-time. Some people said that this world will exist forever, while some argued that it may probably be destroyed by the meteorites in the space.

Late Harold Camping was so mathematical about the end-time prophecy, and he fixed dates for the end of the world (September 6, 1994 and May 21, 2011). But his predictions failed several times, thereby misleading a lot of people.
Is Jesus’ end-time prophecy true or false? Let’s check it out!
The book of Matthew chapter 24 explained how curious the disciples were interested in the end-time prophesies, and Jesus gave full predictions from verse 4 to 14;

1. Many will Come and Proclaim to be Messiah

This was the first end-time prophecy predicted by Jesus, and it came to pass few years after His ascension to heaven. Among these false messiahs are Dositheus, the Samaritan, who affirmed that he was Christ; Simon Magus, who said he appeared among the Jews as the Son of God; and Theudas, who persuaded many to go with him to the river Jordan, to see the waters divided.

Matthew chapter 24 verse 4 and 5 says: “And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.’’

2. Wars will Break Out

This second end-time prophecy came to pass in the history of Rome that the most violent agitations prevailed in the Roman Empire before the destruction of Jerusalem. Four emperors, Nero, Galba, Otho, and Vitellius, suffered violent deaths, in the short space of eighteen months.

In consequence of these changes in the government, there were commotions throughout the empire, Parties were formed; bloody and violent wars were the consequence of attachment to the particular emperors. Mathew chapter 24 verses 6 say: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

3. World War/Famine/Earthquake

This third end-time prophecy started its fulfillment at Caesarea in AD 59, the Jews and Syrians contended about the right to the city, and twenty thousand of the Jews were slain. At this blow the nation of the Jews was exasperated, and carried war and desolation through the Syrian cities and villages. Sedition and civil war spread throughout Judea; Italy was also thrown into civil war, by the contests between Otho and Vitellius for the crown.

The First World War centered in Europe on 28th July 1914, and the Second World War in 193. The occurrence of these world wars is a strong sign for you to believe the end-time prophecy of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that about 805 million people of the 7.3 billion people in the world, (one in nine) were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2012-2014. The worst affected countries include Ethiopia, Malawi, Sudan, Djibouti, and Eritrea.

Earthquake had been a consistent occurrence since the first record of 1769 near Los Angeles. Mathew chapter 24 verse 7 and 8 says: “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

4. Great Persecution

This end-time prophecy started its fulfillment when Peter and John were brought before the council as recorded in the book of Act chapter 4 and verse 5 to 7. Paul and Silas were also beaten and imprisoned. Stephen was stoned to death, and James was killed by Herod…

Mathew chapter 24 verses 9 and 10 say: “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”.

5. Emergence of False Prophets

This end-time prophecy came to fulfillment when Simon Magus, Hymeneus and Philetus, (2Timothy2:17) emerged in the early days after Christ’s ascension. Many false prophets are also available in our time.

Mathew chapter 24 verses 11 say: ‘’Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”

6. Sin will be Common Everywhere

This end-time prophecy gave me the understanding that the living sacrifices of Jesus’ blood on the cross will only wash the sins of people who genuinely surrender their lives to Jesus. This generation is filled with enough grace to live a holy life, unfortunately the love of many Christians had gone cold and sinful occurrences can be found everywhere.

Mathew chapter 24 verses 12 and 13 say: “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

7. Global Evangelism

Global evangelism is the only end-time prophecy that is not fulfilled yet. The Good News must get to the nooks and crannies of the earth before the second coming of Jesus. Presently, bold missionaries are taking the Gospel to the tough regions of the Asia continent. And majority of the Evangelists are making use of the internet facilities to preach globally through the website.

Mathew chapter 24 verses 14 say: “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the entire world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”

The end of this world will come when all the nations are fully aware of the Good News. Since, all the end-time prophecy had come to pass except the seventh, then I want you to believe that this world will surely come to an end.
Live a holy life according to the instructions of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Bible, to avoid missing the glory of His second-coming. Make sure you get ready for His second-coming every day you wake up from bed, because only God knows the D-day. Matthew chapter 24 verses 36 say: “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”

The end-time prophecy is coming to pass in our generation, so it is not a joke, but a reality that Jesus Christ is coming back to take the saints to Heaven. Are you ready?
