The bible alerts us to be on the lookout for the signs that will come to pass before the end of the world.
Matthew 24:3-14 WE Jesus was sitting on the hill called the Mount of Olives. The disciples came to him alone. They said, Tell us, when will this happen? What will be the sign to show you are coming and that it is the end of this world? 4 Jesus answered them, Take care. Do not let anyone fool you. 5 Many men will come in my name. They will say, I am the Christ. They will fool many people. 6 You will hear about wars. You will hear that war is coming. But do not fear. These things must happen, but that is not yet the end. 7 One tribe will fight against another tribe. And one country will fight against another country. The people will have no food to eat. Many people will be sick. The earth will shake in many different places. 8 All these troubles are only the beginning of troubles that will come. 9 Then people will trouble you and kill you. All nations will hate you because you are true to me. 10 Then many people will stop believing. They will give one another over to trouble. They will hate one another. 11 Many people will come and say they are prophets of God. But they will not be true. They will fool many people. 12 People will do more and more wrong things and many people will stop loving me. 13 But the person who keeps on being true to me until the end, that one will be saved. 14 This good news about the kingdom will be told in all the world. The people in all countries must know about it. And then the end will come.

Romans 1:26-28 WE That is why God left them to do the wrong things they wanted to do. Their women left the right way for women and did things that are wrong for women to do. 27 Their men also left the right way with women. They wanted to have sex with one another. They did wrong things with other men. Their own bodies were punished because of the wrong things they did. 28 They did not want to know God. So he left them to their wrong thoughts and to do things that are not right.
