END noun: the point in time at which something stops/ends
1 Peter 4:7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.
Mark 13:33-37 Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
“Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’
ETERNITY noun: time without end

What does “the near future” mean in terms of eternity/infinity? Is soon even relevant if time never ends?
