    (1) “Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom” (Matt. 24:7)

    (2) There will be food shortages . . . in one place after another” (Matt. 24:7)

    (3) “There will be great earthquakes” (Luke 21:11)It is true that there were major quakes in centuries past; furthermore, with their sensitive equipment scientists now detect more than a million quakes a year. But no special instruments are needed for people to know when there is a great earthquake.

    Has there actually been a significant number of major earthquakes since 1914? With data obtained from the National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, supplemented by a number of standard reference works, a tabulation was made in 1984 that included only earthquakes that measured 7.5 or more on the Richter scale, or that resulted in destruction of five million dollars (U.S.) or more in property, or that caused 100 or more deaths. It was calculated that there had been 856 of such earthquakes during the 2,000 years before 1914. The same tabulation showed that in just 69 years following 1914 there were 605 of such quakes. That means that, in comparison with the previous 2,000 years, the average per year has been 20 times as great since 1914.

    “(4) In one place after another pestilences” (Luke 21:11)

    (5) Increased lawlessness accompanied by a cooling off of love on the part of the greater number’ (Matt. 24:11, 12)

    (6) “Men become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth” (Luke 21:25, 26)

    (7) Christ’s true followers to be objects of hatred by all nations on account of his name’ (Matt. 24:9)

    (8) ‘This good news of the kingdom preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness’ (Matt. 24:14)

    ***The Bible describes these events and conditions that mark this significant time period. “The sign” is a composite one made up of many evidences; thus its fulfillment requires that all aspects of the sign be clearly in evidence during one generation. The various aspects of the sign are recorded at Matthew chapters 24, 25, Mark 13, and Luke 21; there are further details at 2 Timothy 3:1-5, 2 Peter 3:3, 4, and Revelation 6:1-8. By way of illustration, we will consider a few outstanding portions of the sign.***
