When will the End Times begin?

We can state, according to Bible prophecies, that End Times have already begun. To begin studying Jesus' second coming, it is necessary to go to Matthew 24, where Jesus himself told what would happen the days immediately before his second coming:

Matthew 24:36-44
“No-one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

We will deppen Matthew 24 when explaining the time of the end signs. When observing inside Matthew 24, this chapter shows in details the whole historical context that will lead to the End Times. But this is only the beggining of this study.

As said above, we don't know about the hour or the day when Jesus will return. Jesus himself told that only Father God knows it. God warns that, what was not revealed by Him, we are not allowed to figure it out, according to Acts 1:7:

"He said to them: It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority."

That is why everyone who "sets" a date Jesus will return, are considered liers, and they are denying God's word.

But, although God does not allow us to know about the day and hour, He wants us to study the prophecies inside the Revelation book:

  • Revelation 1:3
    “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.”
  • Revelation 22:7
    “Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”

God is even deeper: He wants us to know about all His prophecies in Bible, not only Revelation book ones:

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:20
    “do not treat prophecies with contempt.”

Did you know that 28% of the Bible is composed by prophecies? If God did not want us to know about prophecies, He would never dedicate them almost one third of whole Bible.
