There is a lot going on right now. Clearly we are seeing another birth pain. These cycles of birth pains, the times when we see an apparent increase in the various signs that Jesus gave us, are most definitely increasing in frequency and intensity. We should be watching these signs and allowing the realization that we are in the last days strengthen our relationship with Christ Jesus, and witnessing on His behalf:
"So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time." (Mark 13:23).
"Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know whan that time will come." (Mark 13:33).
"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour." (Matthew 25:13)
"Even so, when you see all these things YOU KNOW THAT IT IS NEAR, RIGHT AT THE DOOR." (emphasis mine) (Matthew 24:33).
There is no need for further commentary.
Jesus said it all.
