“Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

The signs are there, but then, they have been there from the beginning.  Do not chase after the signs but follow the One who calls you.  In Him is life.  Life is in Him alone.  He has called you through the water and word of your baptism and in Him you have all the assurance anyone could ever want.  Come through Christ and be given the power to become a child of the Heavenly Father.  Walk in the power of Christ.

It is not your power, but His.  He is the author and finisher of your faith.  In Him alone is all hope.  Apart from Him, there is no hope.  Come then into the salvation He has prepared and be guided by His goodness and mercy.  The son of  destruction will be cast into hell soon enough.  The end of days will come upon us all.  Meanwhile, there is kingdom work to be done.  Do the work prepared for you by the Master.

Lord, teach me to learn and grow.  You are my guide and apart from You, I can do nothing.  Lead me, O Lord, and grant me a heart that willingly follows.  Through all that comes my way, guide me to hold fast to You knowing that these things must come to pass first.  There is lawlessness round about me, but help me to be one who lives in You and therefore within the law.  Through all things, be my strength.  Amen.
