The disciples questioned Jesus at Jerusalem about the coming Kingdom. “When will these things happen? And what will be the sign when these things are about to take place?” Luke 21:7
The question has often been asked, “When”?
In times past, people watched around them to see the first little flowers popping out of the ground and buds forming on trees. These let them know spring was on its way. When the leaves started to change color and there was a different feel to the wind, they knew fall wasn’t far away. They watched for the signs around them.
When will Jesus return? The Bible doesn’t give us a date, but it does give us signs to go by. When you see the signs listed in the books of Matthew and Luke coming to pass, then you can know the time is near. You need to prepare. Jesus said, “When these things begin to take place, straighten up, lift up your heads because your redemption is drawing near.
Jesus warned us, “Be on guard so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap.”
