Jerusalem was the center place at beginning and will be the ending.

“O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?” (Jeremiah 4:14).

JESUS, after he was raised from the dead, appeared in the midst of a room where his eleven disciples were assembled (Luke 24: 36-44).

“Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, [BEGINNING AT JERUSALEM].
And ye are witnesses of these things” (Luke 24:45-48).

Prior to his crucifixion, death and resurrection when he was gathered with his disciples in Jerusalem, they wanted to know the sign of his coming and the End of the World.

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and [WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN OF THY COMING, AND OF THE END OF THE WORLD]?” (Matthew 24:3).

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5).

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).

“[WHEN YE THEREFORE SHALL SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, [STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE], (whoso readeth, let him understand:)” (Matthew 24:15).

“And [WHEN YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES], then know that the desolation thereof is nigh” (Luke 21:20)
“Then let them which be in Judæa flee into the mountains” (Matthew 24:16).

“[FOR THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION], such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:15-16, 21-22).

“[IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION] of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: [AND THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN]: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:29-30).

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and [EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM], and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).

Jesus prays in the clouds.

TRIAL and TRIBULATION = CROWN OF LIFE.

“The LORD [TRIETH] the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth” (Psalm 11:5).

“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is [TRIED], he shall receive the [CROWN OF LIFE], which the Lord hath promised to them that love him” (James 1:12).

Jesus says: “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have [TRIBULATION] ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a [CROWN OF LIFE]” (Revelation 2:10).

“In the world ye shall have [TRIBULATION]: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

“I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20).

Never lose HOPE.

“For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it” (Romans 8:24-25).

“The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD” (Lamentations 3:25-26)Inspiration Quote : " Never Ever Lose Hope" With Sun Burst Behin
