What should Christians be doing to get ready for the calamitous events preceding the end of the world? Given the current state of affairs across the globe, it’s hard for many to avoid the conclusion that the Lord may be returning soon. With so much chaos in the world, it can be easy for anyone—even Christians—to feel uneasy about what’s to come.

In his newest book, “Is The End Near?,” bestselling author Dr. Michael Youssef addresses Jesus’ words of warning about the end times in Matthew 24 and 25 while encouraging Christians to find hope in Christ’s return. In the book, Youssef looks at everything from the four dimensions of judgment to catastrophic events that could trigger unprecedented turmoil. These are very real events that could—and will—take place at the end of the age, and Youssef calls for believers to watch for the signs… and be prepared. The book is available now.

“I won’t sugarcoat the truth,” Youssef writes. “I will tell you plainly that being a Christian in the end times will be incredibly difficult. It will mean being hated and persecuted for your faith.

“But I guarantee that even if you are hunted down, abused and killed for your faith in Jesus, it will have been worth it. You will have eternal life with Jesus in heaven. When He returns, you will be full of joy at His appearing while the unsaved world despairs. Only Jesus offers true security in a collapsing world.”

“Most important of all, you will have the honor and privilege of being a partner with God in the final destruction of Satan. As the apostle Paul wrote in Romans 16:20, ‘The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.’ Imagine, God has promised to crush Satan under our feet! What a thrill it will be to take part in the annihilation of our ancient enemy. No matter what the future holds, you will be secure forever in His hands.”

Youssef examines biblical truths about the end times and cuts through the clutter of end times misconceptions, inaccurate predictions and sensationalized speculations to address what Jesus Himself said about the last days. Instead of being fearful of the events to come, Youssef inspires readers to share the gospel with others so they can be a light to those who are afraid. Christians don’t have to fear the end times. “This book is a must-read because it will encourage you. It will lift you up—it will make you look up, not down,” Youssef says. {eoa}

Dr. Michael Youssef, who has traveled around the world 67 times, was born in Egypt and lived in Lebanon and Australia before coming to the United States and fulfilling a childhood dream of becoming an American citizen. He holds degrees from Moore College in Sydney, Australia, and Fuller Theological Seminary in California, with a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology from Emory University. Youssef has authored more than 50 books, including popular titles like “Jesus, Jihad and Peace,” “Hope for This Present Crisis,” and “Saving Christianity?”
