WHAT ARE THE SIGNS TO PROVE THAT HE MAY COME AT ANY MOMENT?
God’s Word says, “In the last days perilous times shall come.” THERE SHALL BE: Trucebreakers, Traitors, Boasters, Blasphemers, Despisers of those that are good. Disobedient to parents. Lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. II Timothy 3:1-5. Many running to and fro, and increase of knowledge. Daniel 12:4. Nation against nation, kingdom against kingdom, famines, pestilence and earthquakes in diverse places. Matthew 24:7. Rich men heaping up treasure for the last days. James 5:3.

A TIME OF TROUBLE
For there shall be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Daniel 12:1; Matthew 24:21. For when they shall say peace and safety, then sudden destruction cometh upon them. I Thessalonians 5:3.
SEARCH FOR SCRIPTURES
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21:36. Let us work while it is day, for the awful Tribulation darkness is rapidly approaching. On every hand we hear the same testimony of God’s saints, that the Antichrist Spirit is already being felt in a very pronounced manner, making it harder and harder to keep up a spirit of prayer and to ward off the spiritual lethargy and indifference that is creeping so stealthily over the church today. This is not a time for God’s children to invest in houses and lands and things of this world, but a real Gilt-Edge Investment should be made in Human Souls. Remember that one second after you are dead, it will make no difference whether you died in a palace or an attic.
