"What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?"

Matthew 24:3   And as (Jesus) sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us ... what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?  

Matthew 24:4   And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 

Matthew 24:5   For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 

Matthew 24:6   And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 

Matthew 24:7   For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 

Matthew 24:8   All these are the beginning of sorrows. 

Matthew 24:9   Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 

Matthew 24:10   And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 

Matthew 24:11   And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 

Matthew 24:12   And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
