To help put this into perspective, this website covers an extensive list of end times Bible prophecies coming to pass indicating the end of the age and Jesus Christ's promised return, a time foretold to include various and increasing calamities, plagues, wars, famines, moral decline, growing governmental control/mandates and biblical astronomical signs. Signs of the End Times
Luke 21:25-28 is one of many verses spoken of by Jesus that foretold some of the signs and world conditions that would indicate the end of the age and his second coming.
"25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man (Jesus) coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."
According to research this was a one time alignment involving the sun, moon, and stars that accurately matches the reading of Revelation 12:1-2 word-for-word, an end times bible prophecy in the last book of the Bible.
"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered." Revelation 12:1-2.

What is recognized as the #1 defining event/sign unlike any other time in history indicating the end of the age was the rebirth of Israel in 1948.
"The rebirth of Israel as an independent nation in 1948 is one of the most significant events in world history." "Five of these seven prophetic events have already been fulfilled, and the final two are certain to follow." "The scriptures prophesied that Israel would be dispersed among the nations then brought out from among them in a gradual process that would culminate in the establishment of Israel as a nation in a single day. And that's exactly what happened. The Bible also foretold the exact year in which this would happen.” The Rebirth of Israel

Why should we read the Bible / study the Bible? "The Bible is literally "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God’s very words to us." "it is totally reliable and without error." "because there is so much false teaching. The Bible gives us the measuring stick by which we can distinguish truth from error." "The Bible equips us to serve God (2 Timothy 3:17;Ephesians 6:17;Hebrews 4:12). It helps us know how to be saved from our sin and its ultimate consequence (2 Timothy 3:15)."
