The apostle Paul writes, “Concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-31 Thessalonians 5:1-3 But of the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need that I write to you.
 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes on them, as travail on a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Today’s world could change virtually overnight. It’s happened before and the Bible tells us it will happen again. But you can understand and not be surprised by dramatic changes in world events.
