Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, by Viktor Vasnetsov. Painted in 1887.

According to biblical scriptures
it is hard to pinpoint the end of times.

But the signs are depicted

The false prophets

Those who deny the coming of God into the flesh
Those who deny salvation by the cross
Those who deny the Resurrection

Those who perform miracles
in their own name
And mislead many

Those who preach
With subtle lies
And pursue evil purpose

Faith has nothing to do with belief in miracles
It is humble service of Most High and menkind

You have only One Teacher
And One Master
Be not misled

 

Moral decay

Growing evil in society.
There is no more virtue.
Sins are committed and preached.
People follow their own desire.

2 Timothy 3:1-4, “in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.”

The signs in the sky

In many places of the Bible
Referrence is made
With the signs in the sky

Luke 21:25-26, “There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken.”

The great tribulation

The spirit of evil spreading over menkind
Those who oppose Christ
The anti-christ

And the coming of Christ
To judge humanity

Earthquakes in many places and famines

The earth shaking as never before
The foundations of earth shaken

Cities collapsing
And famine all over the earth

The Woman in the sky

And above all
The sign of the woman in the sky

Book of revelation 12,1 :
A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.
