In the Olivet Prophecy, in response to His disciples’ question “What will be the sign of Your coming and the end of the age?” Christ gives us many things to look for. Included in that prophecy of events and attitudes that will occur, He also gives “end of the age” instructions so that Day doesn’t catch us unaware.
