Q: Does god show signs of his coming often?
A: Dear Anthony,
I think there are always signs of Jesus’ second coming all around us. I’m not sure which signs you are asking about. In Matthew 24:4-7 Jesus said that there would be wars, famines (food shortages), pestilences (diseases), and earthquakes (with other natural disaster). Then in verse 8 He said “All these are but the beginning of ?the birth pains.” Birth pains start out slow, but they increase in frequency and intensity – there are more of them, and they are stronger. Jesus said that is what it would be like with all the wars, sicknesses, famines and natural disasters just before He comes – there would be more of them, and they would be more severe. The Bible also tells us that society will become more violent, and that people would be absorbed with the things of this life (shopping, relationships, work – see Luke 17:25-30; 2 Timothy 3:1-5). The signs are happening all around us. Jesus warned us to “Stay awake at all times, ?praying that you may ?have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and ?to stand before the Son of Man” (Lk 21:36). This doesn’t mean we are never to sleep, but we should always be spiritually awake, making sure to spend time with Jesus every day, and trusting in Him to get us ready for when He comes again to take us home to heaven with Him.

Thanks for writing, and remember, there's never been a better time to share Jesus!

Your friend,
Pastor Howard
