nWhen is the end?
No one except God knows!
in matthew 24 Jesus tells us “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. …. (and it goes on to say) “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.
When will the end come? At a time when we do not expect him…. Lk 12:40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
the end will come Like a thief in the night!
Lk 12:39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.
When will the end come? It is going to be soon!
Rev 1:1 The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
"wait a minute preacher! you guys have been talking about the lords comming for years and years! where is he?

What will it be like?
The Lord will come in the same way as we saw him go!
tell the story of the disciples looking up into the sky the cloud hiding him from their sight, and the angel telling them that he will return in the same way. )
( … then show them the verse in revelation 1 that says he is coming with the clouds and every eye will see Him! )
1Th 4:13 Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.
