The Plain Truth is that people have been stating for eons that they are living in the end times. Is there some way to know the timing? The Bible does give some informative scripture about how to know. Bob Barney has a great column on this topic of what signs to look for and how it is a misnomer referring to it as the “End Times”, Here. Also, another great read of the 5 Signs to Look for”, Here. 

Also, Bob’s “What Must Happen Before The End Times“.

We are further away than most think.

The Bible has a number of verses referring to the end of the age, or end times, but specifically says, in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark, “But about that day or hour no one knows.”

Even so, a large number of Americans believe we are, in fact, “living in the end times.”

It is Pew Research, in a recent poll, that found among all U.S. adults, 39% say the “end times” are now.

That includes 47% of all Christians, which in turn included 55% of Protestants, 63% of evangelicals, 31% of mainline church members and 76% of historically black church memberships.

Only 29% of those in “other religions” fell into that category, with only 9% of atheists and 14% of agnostics sharing that view.

Among Republicans it is 45% and among Democrats, 33%.

“Periods of catastrophe and anxiety, such as the coronavirus pandemic, have historically led some people to anticipate that the destruction of the world as we know it – the ‘end times’ – is near. This thinking often has a religious component that draws on sacred scripture. In Christianity, for example, these beliefs include expectations that Jesus will return to Earth after or amid a time of great turmoil,” the poll said.
