by Bill Swanson Where are we in Bible prophecy? Is this age the time of the end? Can people calculate the date of Jesus Christ’s return to this earth? For years people have proclaimed and set dates for the time of the end. Yet Jesus Christ has not returned. When will the end of this “present evil age” (Galatians 1:4 ) come? Approximately 2,000 years ago, Jesus’ disciples came to Him with similar questions. “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, ‘Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?’” (Matthew 24:3). Jesus then began explaining what would happen during the end times preceding His return. Even though the Bible does not give a specific date for when Christ will come back to earth (and even says we can’t know the “day and hour,” Matthew 24:36 ), it does predict what conditions will be like at this pivotal time. Be sure to read this section carefully, as we consider why the end of the world is actually good news, how to understand end-time prophecy, signs of the end times, the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, the rapture, Armageddon, the Antichrist, how the world will end and what you need to do to survive these momentous end times.
