“Little children, it is the [LAST TIME]: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is [THE LAST TIME]” (1 John 2:18).
“[LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU BY ANY MEANS: FOR THAT DAY SHALL NOT COME], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3–4).
“This know also, that in the [LAST DAYS PERILOUS TIMES SHALL COME]. For men shall be [LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES], covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; [HAVING A FORM] of godliness, but [DENYING THE POWER] thereof: from such turn away” (2 Timothy 3:1–5).
“[THESE ARE MURMURERS, COMPLAINERS, WALKING AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS]; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
How that they told you there should be [MOCKERS IN THE LAST TIME, WHO SHOULD WALK AFTER THEIR OWN UNGODLY LUSTS].
These be they who separate themselves, sensual, [HAVING NOT THE SPIRIT].
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
[KEEP YOURSELVES IN THE LOVE OF GOD, LOOKING FOR THE MERCY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST UNTO ETERNAL LIFE]” (Jude 1:16-21).
“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. [IN EVERY THING GIVE THANKS]: for this is the [WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS CONCERNING YOU]” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).
