WORMWOOD: One of the KEY SIGNS of the END OF YEARS (Revelation 8:7-11).

In this present day, our life appears to be normal; however, we need to remind ourselves that in the coming end of years of time before Jesus’ return, there will be a period when life as we know it will change in an instant.

Many people will be undoubtedly frightened because “there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken” (Luke 21:25–26).

“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called [WORMWOOD]: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter” (Revelation 8:7-11).

However, those with faith having refuge in the Kingdom of God will not be afraid.

“Thus saith the LORD, [LEARN NOT THE WAY OF THE HEATHEN, AND BE NOT DISMAYED AT THE SIGNS OF HEAVEN]; for the heathen are dismayed at them” (Jeremiah 10:2).

We as God’s elect will not be afraid as the heathen because we have refuge in the Kingdom of God.

“The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah” (Psalm 46:6-7, 10-11).

“Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20).

“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).

“Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen” (psalm 89:52).

Meteorite is flying towards the Earth

The KINGDOM OF GOD is DELIVERED UP to HEAVEN on the LAST DAY on the DAY OF JUDGMENT at the END OF THE WORLD before the WRATH OF GOD is poured our on the earth (Matthew 24:35-36) (Revelation 11:18, 16:17, 20:11-15).

“[FOR GOD HATH NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH], but to [OBTAIN SALVATION BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST]” (1 Thessalonians 5:6-9).

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by [THE COMING] of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by [OUR GATHERING TOGETHER UNTO HIM], whereunto he called you by our gospel, [TO THE OBTAINING OF THE GLORY] of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thessalonians 2:1).

“[FOR THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH A SHOUT], with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: [AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST], then [WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS], to meet the Lord in the air: [AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD]” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).

“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).

“[BEHOLD, I SHEW YOU A MYSTERY; WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED]. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [LAST TRUMP]: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and [WE SHALL BE CHANGED]. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (1 Corinthians 15:44-55).

“THEN COMETH THE END, when he shall have [DELIVERED UP THE KINGDOM TO GOD, EVEN THE FATHER]; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).

“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14).

“Be ye also patient; stablish your heart: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh” (James 5:8).

“Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not” (Luke 12:40).

“And the nations were angry, and thy [WRATH IS COME], and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that [OVERCOMETH WILL I GIVE TO EAT] of the [TREE OF LIFE], which is in the midst of the [PARADISE OF GOD]” (Revelation 2:7).

“He which testifieth these things saith, [SURELY I COME QUICKLY]. Amen. [EVEN SO, COME], Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).

People rising into distance toward starry light

To live is to LIVE FOREVER and there is ONLY ONE WAY to get to LIVE FOREVER WITH GOD THE FATHER IN HEAVEN (John 3:16-18, 14:6).

“[FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD]” (Colossians 3”3).

“[THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE]” (John 3:15).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that [WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED]: but [HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY], because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

“[AND THE TIMES OF THIS IGNORANCE] God winked at; but now [COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERY WHERE TO REPENT]: Because he hath [APPOINTED A DAY], in the which he will judge the world in [RIGHTEOUSNESS] by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).

“IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

[SET YOUR AFFECTION ON THINGS ABOVE, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH].

[FOR YE ARE DEAD, AND YOUR LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD].

WHEN CHRIST, WHO IS OUR LIFE, SHALL APPEAR, THEN SHALL YE ALSO APPEAR WITH HIM IN GLORY” (Colossians 3:1-4).

“[JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, AND TODAY, AND FOREVER]” (Hebrews 13:8).

“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

“[NO MAN CAN COME TO ME], except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and [I WILL RAISE HIM UP AT THE LAST DAY]” (John 6:44).

“[I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE]: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

Figure of Light Appears in Sky over Beautiful Landscape

“[THIS IS THE DAY] which the LORD hath made; [WE WILL REJOICE] and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24).

Peter, JESUS’ disciple encouraged us, said: “Beloved, [THINK IT NOT STRANGE CONCERNING THE FIERY TRIAL WHICH IS TO TRY YOU], as though some strange thing happened unto you: But [REJOICE, INASMUCH AS YE ARE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST’S SUFFERINGS]; that, [WHEN HIS GLORY SHALL BE REVEALED, YE MAY BE GLAD ALSO WITH EXCEEDING JOY].

[WHEREFORE LET THEM THAT SUFFER ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD] commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator” (1 Peter 4;12-13, 19).

“And we know that [ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD], to them [WHO ARE THE CALLED] according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

The Apostle Paul said: “[REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAY: AND AGAIN I SAY, REJOICE].

Let your moderation be known unto all men. [THE LORD IS AT HAND].

[BE CAREFUL FOR NOTHING; BUT IN EVERY THING BY PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION WITH THANKSGIVING LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN UNTO GOD].

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:4-7).

“[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 the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).

PEACE FOREVER IN PARADISE or Punishment Forever in Perdition?

The day is soon COMING when the FAITH of all humans will be tried at which time we must decide whether to ACCEPT OR REJECT THE “MARK OF THE BEAST”? (Revelation 13:8-9).

“[AND HE CAUSETH ALL, BOTH SMALL AND GREAT, RICH AND POOR, FREE AND BOND, TO RECEIVE A MARK IN THEIR RIGHT HAND, OR IN THEIR FOREHEADS]. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Revelation 13:16-17).

We must be reminded that GOD CREATED ALL THINGS and ONLY GOD MUST BE WORSHIPPED.

“For all the earth is mine” (Exodus 19:5).  “The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalms 95:5, 24:1).

Therefore, the devil aka Satan has NO AUTHORITY to cause human beings to obtain a “mark” to buy or sell.

Ever human being must be reminded what will happen if anyone accepts this “Mark in the right hand or forehead”: “[THE SAME SHALL DRINK OF THE WINE OF THE WRATH OF GOD], which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; [AND HE SHALL BE TORMENTED WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE IN THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY ANGELS, AND IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LAMB]: [AND THE SMOKE OF THEIR TORMENT ASCENDETH UP FOR EVER AND EVER: AND THEY HAVE NO REST DAY NOR NIGHT], who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:10-11).

The ELECT CHILDREN OF GOD will NOT ACCEPT THE MARK OF THE BEAST and WILL NOT WORSHIP THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST!

“[FOR GOD HATH NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH], but to [OBTAIN SALVATION BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST]” (1 Thessalonians 5:6-9).

“If any man have an ear, let him hear. [HE THAT HATH AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT SAITH UNTO THE CHURCHES]” (Revelation 13:9, 2:29).

“And ALL THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL WORSHIP HIM, whose [NAMES ARE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE OF THE LAMB] slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:8).

We must EVERYDAY keep the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST TO THE END (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11:18). “For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).

“[EXAMINE YOURSELVES, WHETHER YE BE IN THE FAITH]; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).

“[KNOW YE NOT THAT YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD], and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (1 Corinthians 3:16–17).

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh [SHALL NOT BE HURT OF THE SECOND DEATH]” (Revelation 2:11).

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).

BEWARE of Prosperity Preaching: Preaching to gain the things of this world by money rather than PREACHING TO GAIN SOULS FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD by the word of GOD and the Gospel of Christ (Matthew 7:15-16, 20).

“NOW the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and [DOCTRINES OF DEVILS]. Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron” (1 Timothy 4:1-2).

Our Lord Jesus says: “[BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS], which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? [WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM]” (Matthew 7:15-16, 20).

“[NO SERVANT CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. [YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON]” (Luke 16:13).

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘[VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT A RICH MAN SHALL HARDLY ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN]’. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:23-24).

“BELOVED, [BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, BUT TRY THE SPIRITS WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD]: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God:  [EVERY SPIRIT THAT CONFESSETH THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH IS OF GOD]: And [EVERY SPIRIT THAT CONFESSETH NOT THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH IS NOT OF GOD: AND THIS IS THAT SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST], whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:1-3).

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 1:7).

“[FOR SUCH ARE FALSE APOSTLES, DECEITFUL WORKERS, TRANSFORMING THEMSELVES INTO THE APOSTLES OF CHRIST]. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; [WHOSE END SHALL BE ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS]” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

“[TAKE HEED, AND BEWARE OF COVETOUSNESS]: for [A MAN’S LIFE CONSISTETH NOT IN THE ABUNDANCE OF THE THINGS] which he possesseth” (Luke 12:15).

“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:31).

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:14).

Our FATHER in the name of JESUS we thank you for bring us into this new day and week, and PRAY for your BLESSINGS, GOODNESS and MERCIES.

“It is of the LORD’s [MERCIES THAT WE ARE NOT CONSUMED], because his compassions fail not. They are new [EVERY MORNING]: great is thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).

“IT is a [GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS] unto the LORD, and to [SING PRAISES UNTO THY NAME, O MOST HIGH]: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the [MORNING], and thy faithfulness every [NIGHT]” (Psalm 92:1-2).

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in [SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]” (John 4:23–24).

“[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS, AS THE HEATHEN DO[: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: [FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM]” (Matthew 6:7-8).

“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our [DAILY] bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).

The POWER of GOD the FATHER and of HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON is too often overlooked and not harnessed: All we have to do is come together in two or three and PRAY in TRUTH AND IN SPIRIT to GOD in the name of JESUS CHRIST FOR WHAT WE REQUIRE IN OUR LIVES.

“[GOD HATH SPOKEN ONCE; TWICE HAVE I HEARD THIS; THAT POWER BELONGETH UNTO GOD]” (Psalm 62:11).

“The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand” (John 3:35).

“Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father” (John 6:46). “

JESUS, the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD says: “All things that the Father hath are mine” (John 16:15).

“[ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH]” (Matthew 28:18).

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the [TRUE WORSHIPPERS SHALL WORSHIP] the Father in [SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:24, 23).

“Verily I say unto you, [WHATSOEVER YE SHALL BIND ON EARTH SHALL BE BOUND IN HEAVEN: AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL LOOSE ON EARTH SHALL BE LOOSED IN HEAVEN].

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

[FOR WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED TOGETHER IN MY NAME, THERE AM I IN THE MIDST OF THEM]” (Matthew 18:18-20).

“I am with you alway, [EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

Wake up World before it is too late and come to KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH: “[AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND SIN NOT]; for some have not the [KNOWLEDGE OF GOD]” (1 Corinthians 15:34).

“[FOR THIS IS GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE IN THE SIGHT OF GOD OUR SAVIOUR]; who will have [ALL MEN TO BE SAVED], and to come unto the [KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH]” (1 Timothy 2:3-4).

“[FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE]; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

[AND THEY SHALL TURN AWAY THEIR EARS FROM THE TRUTH], and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

“[EVER LEARNING, AND NEVER ABLE TO COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH]” (2 Timothy 3:7).

“We can do nothing against the [TRUTH, BUT FOR THE TRUTH]” (2 Corinthians 13:8).

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that [WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE]. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED]: but [HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY], because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18).

“[FOR THE WRATH OF GOD] is revealed from heaven [AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS OF MEN], who hold [THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS]” (Romans 1:18).

“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall [CONSUME WITH THE SPIRIT OF HIS MOUTH, AND SHALL DESTROY] with the [BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING]: Even him, [WHOSE COMING IS AFTER THE WORKING OF SATAN] with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all [DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS] in them that [PERISH]; because they [RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED]” (2 Thessalonians 2:8-10).

Our Lord JESUS CHRIST, the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD says: “It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4).

“[THE TIME IS FULFILLED], and the kingdom of God is at hand: [REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL]” (Mark 1:15).

“[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).

“[HEAVEN AND EARTH SHALL PASS AWAY], but [MY WORDS SHALL NOT PASS AWAY]” (Matthew 24:35).

“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3).

“[FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH].

[WATCH YE THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS], that ye may be accounted [WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS] that shall come to pass, [AND TO STAND BEFORE] the Son of man” (Luke 21:35-36).

“[I AM HE THAT LIVETH, AND WAS DEAD; AND, BEHOLD, I AM ALIVE FOR EVERMORE], Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18).

We must PRAY ALWAYS to GOD in the name of JESUS especially now for PERILOUS TIMES ARE COMING because our enemy the devil, aka Satan knows his TIME IS COMING TO AN END (Revelation 11:18, 14:11, 20:11).

“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).
