There are many predictions, prophecies and statements about the end times. Especially recent “prophecies” often turn out to be wrong very quickly. In the Bible there are numerous descriptions of the conditions in the times of the “final”. Some statements can certainly be interpreted, while others are unmistakable because they are in plain text. There are quite a few.
