HELPS Lexicon excerpt

1448 eggízō (from 1451/eggýs, "near") – properly, has drawn close (come near).  1448 (eggizō) occurs 14 times in the Greek perfect tense (indicative mood)  in the NT.  This expresses "extreme closeness, immediate imminence – even a presence (= 'It is here') because the moment of this coming happened (i.e. at the beginning of Jesus' ministry)"  (J. Schlosser).
