are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken." Luke
there shall be ... upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity;
... Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things
which are coming on the earth." Luke 21:25, 26.
This sounds strangely like an editorial from a current newspaper--a perfect picture
of the world today--and there is a reason: We are the people of the very last
days of earth's history.
All around us the world is manifesting intense activity. There is a feeling of
apprehension among all people; they are looking for some great event, but know
not what it is to be. The nations are filled with anxiety, and there is a spirit
of unrest and tumult on every hand. If ever there was a time when men should
look to the Bible it is now.
The tense atmosphere present in the world today should not surprise us. Christ
foretold it. It should convince us that His coming is near.
