There is much discussion about the end times. When and how it is going to be. This post will direct you to some of the main points in the Bible about end times.

  1. Revelation 22:20-21 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.

These are the last two verses of the Bible. The Bible ends with a promise. Jesus is coming back. The first time Jesus came as a humble servant. He will return as King of kings and Lord of lords.

  1. 2 Timothy 3:1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.

Before Jesus comes back there will be times of difficulty, of tribulation. The Bible warns that people will be led astray and Christians will face much persecution. There are also warnings about wars and natural disasters.

  1. John 11:23-24 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.”

When Jesus comes back on the last day, the Bible speaks of the resurrection of the dead. Jesus showed that it is true by raising Lazarus from the dead after four days, just before going up to Jersualem for his death and resurrection. 

  1. Matthew 12:36 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak

We will all stand before Jesus and be judged. We are all guilty of sin, from which we must repent and ask for forgiveness. It is by God’s grace we are forgiven.

  1. 2 Peter 3:13 But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

The heaven and earth will be set on fire and dissolved. The Bible gives us a promise of a new heaven and a new earth.

  1. Revelation 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.

For those with their name in the book of life, the new Jerusalem will come down from heaven and will dwell with God forever. 

  1. Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Although words of coming tribulation and judgement may worry you, do not worry about tomorrow. Christians are called to be lights in the world and share the Gospel today.
