Signs of the time-perplexity- Last generation

Signs of the time reveal that the coming of our Lord is near. Christ has given us many signs, most of which have been fulfilled and the others are fulfilling. Just recently it was reported that the past 12 months, June last year to June this year has been the hottest in the US on record. Signs are following signs, worst tornado season, drought, economic woes, corruption, flooding, …,perplexity, all indicates the end is near.
“The exact day and hour of His coming has not been revealed. Christ told His disciples that He Himself could not make known the day or the hour of His second appearing. But He mentioned certain events by which they might know when His coming was near.” {SJ 175.4}
There shall be signs,” He said, “in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars.” Luke 21:25. And He speaks still more plainly: “The sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven.” Matthew 24:29. {SJ 175.5}
“Upon the earth, He said, there shall be “distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth.””Luke 21:25, 26. {SJ 175.6}
We are now living in the last of these signs as listed by Jesus in Luke chapter 21. The nations are perplexed, they have no way out of the mess that the world has find itself in. All this is leading to the coming of the Son of man.
And they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds,from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew 24:30, 31. {SJ 175.7}
The Saviour adds: “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.” Matthew 24:32, 33. {SJ 176.1}
“Christ has given signs of His coming. He says that we may know when He is near, even at the doors. When the trees put forth their leaves in the spring, we know that summer is near. Just so surely, when the signs appear in the sun and the moon and the stars, we are to know that Christ’s coming is near.” {SJ 176.2}
These signs have appeared. On May 19, 1780, the sun was darkened. That day is known in history as “the dark day.” In the eastern part of North America, so great was the darkness that in many places the people had to light candles at noonday.The darkening of the sun and the moon was a sign of His coming.” {SJ 176.3}
“November 13, 1833, there was the most wonderful display of falling stars ever beheld by men. “Again thousands believed that the day of judgment had come.” {SJ 176.4}
“Since that time earthquakes, tempests, tidal waves, pestilence, famine, and destructions by fire and flood, have multiplied. All these, and “distress of nations, with perplexity,” declare that the Lord’s coming is near.” {SJ 176.5}
Of those who beheld these signs He says, “This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away.” Matthew 24:34, 35.” {SJ 176.6}
We have beheld these signs, so we know that we are living in the last generation.
““The Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.” {SJ 177.1}
Christ is coming, coming with clouds and with great glory. A multitude of shining angels will attend Him. He will come to raise the dead, and to change the living saints from glory to glory. {SJ 177.2}
He will come to honor those who have loved Him and kept His commandments, and to take them to Himself. He has not forgotten them nor His promise.” {SJ 177.3}
