Assertions like the following that conclude the cover feature, THE END OF A SIGN, OR A SIGN OF THE END? damage the Church���s credibility with members and nonmembers alike. ���While we do not know how much longer time will last, the prophetic periods and signs confirm that truly we are in the end-times.���
