Bible Verses About the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, Jesus knocking on the door

1. Signs of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ

A. Mankind Has Been Deeply Corrupted and the World Is Dark and Evil

2 Timothy 3:1-5
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Luke 17:26-30
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

B. Spiritual Famine

Amos 4:6–8
“‘And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have you not returned to me,’ said Jehovah. ‘And also I have withheld the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain on one city, and caused it not to rain on another city: one piece was rained on, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered. So two or three cities wandered to one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have you not returned to Me,’ said Jehovah”.

Amos 8:11
“‘Behold, the days come,’ said the Lord Jehovah, ‘that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of Jehovah’”.

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.


C. The Appearance of the War, Famine, and Earthquakes

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

D. The Restoration of Israel

Matthew 24:32–33
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near: So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

Luke 21:29–32
And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, you see and know of your own selves that summer is now near at hand. So likewise you, when you see these things come to pass, know you that the kingdom of God is near at hand. Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
