When in the Scriptures is written the “last days”, there is meant a period in which predicted events will occur. This article lists the prophesied signs of the end times, if possible, placed in the correct order. So every Christian will know in which period we live now and what will come.
Introduction ‘signs of the last days’:
Different indications for the last days are: last day, last of days, end of times, end of days, the end or intended time. If the event concerns the final end, this will become clear from the context of the Scripture. It may thus be the times that precede the end, or the period that includes the final end.
To be able of charting the signs of the last days, we have made a choice of taking the summary of the article ‘world powers’ and some additional Scriptures as a starting point.
Summary of the article ‘world powers’ and identification of the eighth world power:
The seven world powers – (Revelation 13:1) … a wild beast with seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten diadems, but upon his heads blasphemous names
Satan the Devil – (Revelation 12:3) … a great fiery-colored dragon, with seven heads and ten horns and seven diadems on his heads
The false prophet – (Revelation 13:11) 11 And I saw another beast rising from the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, but was speaking as a dragon.
The financial world power, the 8th kingdom – (Revelation 17:3) 3 … .. scarlet-colored wild beast sat, which was full of blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.
The 10 kings – (Revelation 17:12,13)12 The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour. 13 These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings. They also will overcome who are with him, called and chosen and faithful.”
The king of the north, the financial eighth world power, comes to an end:
HerzSt (Daniel 8:23-25) 23 In the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce face, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up [financial system of central banks]. 24 His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power [by the 10 kings together with the image of the wild beast] ; and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper and do his pleasure; and he shall destroy the mighty ones and the holy people. [persecution of Christians]. 25 Through his policy he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart. [The eighth kingdom is full of blasphemous names (Rev. 17:3)] , and in their security shall he destroy many: he shall also stand up against the prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. [He will make war against Christ, together with the NWO, but will be destroyed by Jesus and his army.] (see Revelation 17:12-14)
WEB (Revelation 17:12-14) 12 The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour. 13 These have one mind, and they give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings. They also will overcome who are with him, called and chosen and faithful.”
Additional signs in the end times from the book of Daniel:

• there will be nations on which the king of the north has no power
