God declared of his only begotten Son, Jesus, the root of David (Revelation 22:16): “I will make him my [FIRSTBORN], higher than the kings of the earth. His seed also will I make to endure forever, and his throne as the days of heaven” (Psalm 89:27, 20).
The Apostle Paul explained of Jesus: “Who is the image of the invisible God, the [FIRSTBORN] of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the [BEGINNING, THE FIRSTBORN FROM THE DEAD]; that in all things he might have the pre-eminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell” (Colossians 1:15-18).
Brethren, do not be deceived; Jesus comes after the great tribulation on the Last Day at the End of the world.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall [SHEW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS]; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not” (Matthew 24:23-26).
