Luke 21:25-28 NRSVue
25“There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars and on the earth distress among nations confused by the roaring of the sea and the waves. 26People will faint from fear and foreboding of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27Then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in a cloud’ with power and great glory. 28Now when these things begin to take place, stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”,

Some thoughts on this scripture
Lord, in nearly eighty years of life I have seen no signs in the sun and the stars. We seem to be still in the early millennia of this blessed planet, a long way off from the apocalypse you describe. It looks like I will see you in person before these things take place. Meanwhile I stand prepared but unworried.
