definately the last times, each day gets us closer but Gods' timing is right not ours. However, we should at all times be ready to meet him, praying,keeping a strong and faithful bond with him, like the others have said.
These signs happening now have be there for decades but the bible tells us to be prepared.You may not know how, you may not know when, but he will do it again.
" For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the lord so cometh as a theif in the night. For when they say peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, my brethren, are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief" 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4
Jesus Christ, the name above all names be with you all.
