rumors of war; rumors of wars

the threat that fighting will happen
—No matter how peaceful it may seam, there are always rumors of war coming from somewhere in the world.

When Jesus said that the temple in Jerusalem would be destroyed, his disciples said to him,

“Tell us, when will these things happen? And what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Watch out that no one misleads you. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will mislead many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. Make sure that you are not alarmed, for this must happen, but the end is still to come.” (Matthew 22:3-6)
