“Many false prophets will arise and deceive many; and because of the increase of evildoing, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who preserves to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world as a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:11-14)
The contemporary Apostasy is due to an increase of evildoing according to (Matthew 24:12).
“Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near.” (Matthew 24:32)

“Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come. Be sure of this: if the master of the house of the house had known the hour of night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into. So too, you must also be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.” (Matthew 24:42-44)
