Introduction: Seven Prophetic Signs Before Jesus Return

Previous generations have thought that Jesus Christ would return in their lifetimes, but they were proven wrong. Many people alive today think Christ's return is imminent. Certainly, the Bible contains prophecies that could not have been fulfilled until this generation.

Shortly before His crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus Christ delivered a major prophecy of end-time events, recorded in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21. He was asked by His disciples: "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 responded with a description of conditions and events that would lead up to His second coming. He said that when these signs became evident, His return would occur within one generation (Matthew 24:34). Could this be that generation?

Throughout the nearly 2,000 years since Christ gave His prophecy, many have thought that theirs was the time of His return. They all turned out to be wrong, of course. But interestingly, there are a number of prophecies in the Bible that could not be fulfilled until our modern era, the post-World War II period.

The Bible is filled with prophecies, each of which has come to pass or will come to pass in its appointed time. The purpose of these prophecies is to give Christians hope for the future and lead them to live transformed lives, submitting themselves to God's righteous rule in their lives.

The seven prophecies covered in this guide are prime examples of important past and future events that set the stage for Jesus' second coming. God's sincere desire is that you are filled with hope and a desire to live godly lives transformed by the sure Word of God.
