People have been predicting the end of the world for centuries. There are so many theories and schools of thought on this subject that it’s honestly hard to take any of them seriously. But Jesus gives us an idea of what it will be like. No, he doesn’t point to a date on the calendar. He doesn’t even give an approximate time frame. He does give some signposts to look out for, but more importantly, he lets us know how we should prepare ourselves. So do you need to stock up on bread and milk and get busy building that underground bunker in the backyard? No. The preparation for that glorious day is much simpler than you think.
