There is much speculation regarding the coming of the Messiah Y’shua. Many interpretations and predictions are made. How do we know what is true? What will be the sign of Y’shua’s coming? Y’shua’s disciples were also anxious to know this. The first thing Y’shua said when asked this question was to warn them to see to it that no one deceives them. This warning is for us too. There are so many theories and prophets out there. Some of these theories have been repeated so many times that is has been accepted as truth. It may seem true, but do not be deceived, test everything against YHVH’s word. That is the purpose of this article to see how Y’shua answered this question to His disciples and align it with the rest of scripture in order to give us a clearer perspective on this.

When we are thinking about these end time topics, were are in good company. The disciples of our Master were also discussing the topic, but they had the advantage of asking Him the question directly. They asked Him how we will know that the end of age has come. Lots of us can easily quote His words on earthquakes and rumours of wars, but most miss the first part of His instruction. This article will do a more detailed study on this first part of the answer that most believers seem to miss. – Take heed that no one leads you astray!
