* In Creator/PiersAnthony's ''[[Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality Being a Green Mother]]'', plague, earthquakes, floods, and volcanic eruptions are all the result of singing the Llano of Chaos, which ends all living things within weeks of it being sung. Although one could argue that these are less ''signs'' of the end and more the ''cause''.

* Increasingly unhinged right-wing fundamentalist preacher John Hagee makes a big thing about "[[http://www.fourbloodmoons.co.uk/ The Four Blood Moons]]", arguing that the Bible foretells a time when four eclipses of the moon will happen in quick sucession, heralding the commencement of the End Times, unless [[OnlyInAmerica the world]] renounces its evil ways and turns from liberalism, socialism, feminism, unjust criticism of God's holy state of Israel, and other manifestations of godlessness, and returns to the ordained path of the LORD, as defined by people like John Hagee. Apparently the Bible was written four thousand years ago to predict what is happening right now.

* The [[Literature/TheBible biblical]] ''Literature/BookOfRevelation'' is crammed with them from start to finish, including plagues, world wars, stars falling to earth, TheNumberOfTheBeast, DemonLordsAndArchdevils showing up... it would be easier to list the signs that ''don't'' appear. Unsurprisingly, this is one of the original TropeMakers if not the UrExample.

8:12) In another verse, He explicitly states that the coming of The End will be a major surprise for everyone, that "concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. (Matthew 24:36)"
