Other signs are more proximate. Mark (Chapter 13), Matthew
(Chapter 24), and Luke (Chapter 21) all describe the

2 Timothy 4:1-2

2 Timothy 3:1-5
But understand this: there will be
terrifying times in the
. People will be self-centered and lovers of
money, proud, haughty, abusive, disobedient to their
parents, ungrateful, irreligious, callous, implacable,
slanderous, licentious, brutal, hating what is good,
traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather
than lovers of God, as they make a pretense of religion
but deny its power. Reject them.
