'Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.'
Jesus Christ is God. He is Holy which means He cannot lie. Jesus has told us what to look for as a sign to His imminent arrival. As a warning to those who have rejected Him and will face judgement (Is 66:14-16, Heb 10:26-28, 2 Peter 3:11-13, Rev 8:6-8), and as a blessed hope for the saints that are alive and remain and will escape all these things that are coming upon the earth (, Eph 1:10-14, 1 Thes 4:13-18, Titus 2:12-14, Rev 11:12, Rev 22:12).
