What shall be the sign of thy coming?

We are on the “verge of a stupendous crisis”, but, “but the end is not yet”, what we are witnessing with the disease outbreaks, the wars and rumors of wars (even rumors of WW III), economic crisis, corruption, crime, etc, “are the beginning of sorrows”(Matt. 24:8),  the word “sorrows” in the concordance means “child birth pain”, in other words, as the due date gets closer, a mother experiences sharper and more frequent pain. In the same way, what the world is experiencing now, will only get worst until the Lord comes.  Even though the “end is not yet”, and we are at the “beginning of sorrows”, we are cautioned, “…the final movements will be rapid ones.”—Testimonies for the Church, vol. 9, p. 11.  “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Matt. 24:22  God in His mercy is going to shorten to pain and suffering.

Among the perplexities of the world there is hope, peace and comfort in Christ Jesus. This is our only safety, “give Him your heart without measure”, His coming is near, “…even at the doors” (Matthew 24:33)

Matthew 24:3-8
” And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

Through spiritualism, Satan appears as a benefactor of the race, healing the diseases of the people, and professing to present a new and more exalted system of religious faith; but at the same time he works as a destroyer.  – {GC 589.1}

Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls. He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows. When he was suffered to afflict Job, how quickly flocks and herds, servants, houses, children, were swept away, one trouble succeeding another as in a moment. It is God that shields His creatures and hedges them in from the power of the destroyer.  – {GC 589.2}

While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation. Even now he is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast. “The earth mourneth and fadeth away,” “the haughty people … do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.” Isaiah 24:4, 5. – {GC 589.3}
