Matthew 24:3-14

"As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”"

Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately. They asked, “What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them with many signs.

He said there would be wars and rumors of wars. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.

There would be famines, earthquakes, and troubles in various places. These are just the beginning of sorrows. Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. The love of most will grow cold due to increase in wickedness, but whoever stands firm to the end will be saved.

Mark 13:5-13

"Jesus said to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.”"

Jesus spoke to his disciples about the end times. He warned them about false prophets who would come in His name and deceive many. He told them not to be alarmed by wars, earthquakes, or famines.

These things must happen first, but they are just the beginning.

People will hate and persecute believers for following Jesus Christ. Families will betray each other. Some followers will be put to death for their faith. But those who stand firm till the end will be saved.

Luke 21:10-11

"Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.”"

Luke 21:10-11 speaks of great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences in various places. There will be fearful events and great signs from heaven. Jesus told his disciples about these things to warn them about the coming days.

He also spoke of the destruction of Jerusalem. The people who heard him connected this with the end times and His return. These signs are part of what many call “the last days.

2 Timothy 3:1-5

"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people."

2 Timothy 3:1-5 speaks about difficult times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves and money. They will be boastful, arrogant, and disobedient to their parents. Moral decay is a big issue here.

Society will face large-scale problems because of these behaviors.

The passage warns us about perilous times ahead. Dangerous people with bad traits make things worse for everyone. Values will collapse as wickedness grows stronger. This prediction shows a change for the worse in how people think and act.

The Return of Christ

People will see Jesus return on the clouds. Everyone will know it is Him. In Matthew 24:30-31, it says He’ll come with power and glory. Angels will gather believers from all over the earth.

This event is also called the second coming of Christ.

In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Paul speaks about this moment too. The Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a shout and a trumpet call. Those who have died believing in Him will rise first.

Then living believers will meet them in the air to be with Jesus forever.

Revelation 1:7 states every eye shall see Him even those who pierced Him, and people everywhere will mourn because of Him… showing how impactful His return would be across nations.

Matthew 24:30-31

"Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other."

Christ will come back one day. The sky will show a sign of HimEveryone on earth will see this and be very sad. Christ, the Son of Man, will arrive with great power and glory.

Angels with loud trumpets will gather His followers from all over the world. This event is described as “the second coming.” Some think it might be part of the rapture—others believe it shows Jesus meeting believers in the air before final judgment day.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

"For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever."

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 states that the Lord will come down from heaven with a loud command. The archangel’s voice and trumpets will soundBelievers who died will rise first. Then, those still alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.

This passage reassures believers about the resurrection of their bodies. Some worry what happens if they die before Jesus returns. This says there is hope for all who follow Christ—whether dead or living—they’ll join Him when He comes again.

Acts 1:11

"“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”"

Two angels spoke to the disciples. They said Jesus would come back the same way he went up into heaven. Acts 1:11 tells about this moment. It happened after Jesus rose from the dead, showing his power and promise of return.

This verse is a key part of Christian beliefs. It promises that Christ will come again, fulfilling prophecies in the Bible. Jesus sits now with God in heaven but will return as seen by his followers during his ascension.

Revelation 1:7

"“Look, he is coming with the clouds,” and “every eye will see him, even those who pierced him”; and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.” So shall it be! Amen."

Revelation 1:7 talks about the return of Jesus Christ. Everyone will see Him, even those who pierced Him. This verse says that all tribes on earth will mourn because of Him. It shows the visibility and impact of His return.

The second coming is a key part of Christian belief. It means that every eye, everywhere, will witness this event. The mourning mentioned highlights the deep effect on all people. This shows how powerful and universal Christ’s return will be for everyone around the world.

Warnings and Encouragement

Scoffers will come in the last days. They will follow their own sinful desires, making fun of holy scriptures. Believers shouldn’t be surprised by this and should stay strong in faith.

Peter warned about these scoffers, saying they would ask where Christ’s return is since everything seems to continue as it has from creation.

John called such people “antichrists.” He said we are living in the last hour because many antichrists have already come. Jude also spoke about them, highlighting that they create divisions and follow their natural instincts without having the Spirit.

Hebrews 10:25 encourages believers not to give up meeting together but to encourage one another as they see the Day approaching. This helps keep faith alive amidst trials.

2 Peter 3:3-4

"Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”"

In 2 Peter 3:3-4, the Bible warns about scoffers in the last days. They will make fun of the idea that Christ will return and follow their own evil desires. These scoffers ask, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised?” They doubt because things seem to stay the same since our fathers died.

The presence of these mockers highlights their deceitful nature. Their actions show they don’t respect God’s promises. Instead, they walk after their own lusts and lead others astray from the knowledge of truth.

1 John 2:18

"Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour."

1 John 2:18 speaks about the last hour. Many people have denied Jesus, which proves we are in these final days. The verse mentions Antichrists who deny Jesus as the Christ. These people reject Him as part of the Holy Trinity.

John wanted everyone to know they lived in special times. Some members of the church also turned away from their faith, denying that Jesus is Lord and Savior. This denial matches what was said about many false prophets appearing before the end times come.

Jude 1:18-19

"They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit."

Jude 1:18-19 talks about false teachers appearing in the last times. These people, predicted by the apostles, follow their own ungodly desires and cause divisions among believers. They are worldly minded and lack the Holy Spirit.

These scoffers will try to manipulate others. Believers should be aware of these dangerous influences in the end times. The Bible warns us to guard ourselves against those who depart from faith and spread untruths.

Hebrews 10:25

"not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

Hebrews 10:25 stresses the need for Christians to meet together regularly. It says not to stop gathering, especially as “the Day” of Christ’s return nears. This verse points out how important it is to encourage each other in faith and good deeds.

Gathering as a church builds community and support among believers. The Bible emphasizes this, saying fellowship helps us stay strong in our faith. Hebrews 10:25 also serves as a warning for those who skip meeting with others.

Jesus will come again, so staying connected is crucial for spiritual growth and readiness.

Judgment and the Day of the Lord

God’s judgment day will come. People must answer for their actions. Good deeds get rewarded, bad deeds are condemned. On this day, Jesus Christ will return to judge everyone. God alone knows when this day will come.

The Bible tells us about the final judgment in 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 and Revelation 20:11-15. The righteous receive eternal life and enter the kingdom of God, while others face punishment.

This shows God’s justice. Even if people suffer on earth now, they can find comfort knowing that God’s judgment is fair and true.

2 Thessalonians 1:7-10

"and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you."

2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 describes the Second Coming of Christ. Jesus will come from heaven with blazing fire. This shows His power and glory. Those who do not know God or obey the gospel will be punished.

The passage talks about the persecution of Christians in Thessalonica. It reveals God’s righteousness through their suffering. Believers will find rest when Christ returns, while unbelievers face destruction.

This ties to Biblical prophecies and themes seen throughout Scripture, such as everlasting life and the day of judgment.

Revelation 20:11-15

"Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire."

Revelation 20:11-15 talks about the Great White Throne Judgment. This is when the dead are judged by their deeds, and books are opened to reveal them. Jesus is seen as a powerful judge, like a King of kings and Lord of lords.

The passage is very serious because it shows the final sentencing of those who are lost. Christ comes quickly with His reward for everyone based on their actions. This day marks man’s last time in God’s court, stressing how important this judgment is.

Zephaniah 1:14-18

"The great day of the Lord is near— near and coming quickly. The cry on the day of the Lord is bitter; the Mighty Warrior shouts his battle cry."

Zephaniah 1:14-18 talks about the “day of the LORD” which will come soon. It describes a time of great sadness and pain, where God will punish sin and wrongdoings. People will be very afraid as they face God’s anger.

This passage shows God’s power over all nations, not just Judah. On this day, money won’t save anyone from God’s wrath. The whole world will feel His fierce punishment for their sins.

Malachi 4:1

"“Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the Lord Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them.”"

The day is coming like a burning furnace. The proud and wicked will be like stubble. Malachi 4:1 speaks of final destruction for the unrepentant. This verse foretells a day of reckoning, where the wicked face annihilation.

Malachi also talks about the Sun of Righteousness, Jesus, coming back for the righteous. Before this happens, Elijah will return. This prophecy emphasizes healing and turning hearts between fathers and children before end times arrive.

New Heaven and New Earth

An oil painting of the new heaven and new earth, representing the event following Jesus' return and the final judgment, where righteousness dwells, free from the curse of sin, symbolizing the perfect world Christians anticipate with hope and faith.

God will create a new heaven and a new earth. This event follows Jesus’ return and the final judgment. Revelation 21:1-4 describes it as a place where sin and pain are gone forever.

Isaiah 65:17 says that old things will not be remembered in this paradise of God.

Righteousness dwells in the new creation, as mentioned in 2 Peter 3:13. It is humanity’s forever home, free from the curse of sin. In Revelation 22:12-13, Jesus promises to bring rewards for each person based on their deeds.

Christians look forward to this perfect world with hope and faith.

Revelation 21:1-4

"Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”"

Revelation 21:1-4 shares a vision of a new heaven and a new earth. The old earth will pass away, making room for this perfect place. In this new world, there is no more sea. A holy city called New Jerusalem comes down from God.

It shines like a bride ready for her groom.

In this place, God dwells among His people. He wipes every tear from their eyes—there’s no death, sorrow, crying, or pain anymore. All the old hurts are gone forever in this new creation where God lives with us.

This chapter gives hope about the end of suffering and the arrival of eternal peace and joy with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 65:17

"See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind."

Isaiah 65:17 says God will create new heavens and a new earth. This means old problems will be forgotten and hidden from His view.

In this passage, Isaiah talks about God’s plans for the future. He shows a peaceful time where even animals get along with each other. Some people think the long life mentioned in verse 20 could be symbolic or literal.

Others say it points to end-time events described in the last chapters of Isaiah’s book, such as Bible prophecies about peace and renewal for Zion among others.

2 Peter 3:13

"But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells."

2 Peter 3:13 talks about God’s promise of “new heavens and a new earth.” This verse means that there will be a future renewal of creation. True Christians are encouraged to look forward to this promise.

God’s power will bring judgment, just like He did in Noah’s flood. This shows God’s ability to change the world.

In these new heavens and new earth, there won’t be sin or vanity. The Bible says that true believers should have hope for this future. It marks an end to the current sinful world and beginning of something perfect as told by prophets like Daniel and Isaiah.

Revelation 22:12-13

"Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."

Jesus says He is coming soon. His reward will be with Him to give each person according to their deeds. Jesus declares, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”.

This verse shows that God sees everything we do. It reminds us that our actions matter. Those who follow God’s commandments and seek good things like glory and honor will receive eternal life.

The end of sin and rebellion is near; heaven awaits for those who are ready.

Scoffers will mock God’s promises. They follow sinful desires and doubt Jesus’ return (2 Peter 3:3-4). The Bible says a day is like a thousand years to the Lord, showing we live in the last days now (2 Peter 3:8).
