Signs of the End Times



It follows a synopsis of Luke’s Chapter 21 about the Apocalypse.  

11 There will be great earthquakes and plagues and famines in various places; there will be terrifying events and great signs from heaven.

20 When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you must realize that it will soon be laid desolate.

22 For this is the time of retribution when all that scripture says must be fulfilled.

24 For great misery will descend on the land and retribution on this people. They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive to every gentile country; and Jerusalem will be trampled down by the gentiles until their time is complete. 25 There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; on earth nations in agony, bewildered by the turmoil of the ocean and its waves; 26 men fainting away with terror and fear at what menaces the world, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. 27 And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand erect, hold your heads high, because your liberation is near at hand.

31 So with you when you see these things happening: know that the kingdom of God is near.

34 “Watch yourselves, or your hearts will be coarsened by debauchery and drunkenness and the cares of life, and that day will come upon you unexpectedly, 35 like a trap. For it will come down on all those living on the face of the earth. 36 Stay awake, praying at all times for the strength to survive all that is going to happen, and to hold your ground before the Son of man.”

Humanity should repent of their sins and surrender to the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

    Other than this one text: “For it will come down on all those living on the face of the earth” all of the other warnings and prophecies in those verses could refer to the destruction of the Jewish Temple in 70 A.D. Much work has been done in this area by Catholic scholars; it would be interesting to see some reference to Magisterial teaching on this subject.
