Many people DO NOT understand the KNOWLEDGE OF GOD and the foundation of the TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL, and are instead holding on to FOOLISH BELIEFS that they are going to be so called “raptured” in the middle of the night to escape what is COMING upon this earth.
The CHILDREN OF GOD will be here during the GREAT TRIBULATION up to the LAST DAY when Jesus comes for the DAY OF JUDGMENT at the END OF THE WORLD (Matthew 24:36) (Revelation 11;18, 20:11-15). For those of us alive, we will suffer many things and have to endure to THE END.
Our Lord Jesus says: “[ALL THESE ARE THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS]. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: AND YE SHALL BE HATED OF ALL NATIONS FOR MY NAME’S SAKE” (Matthew 24:8-9).
“[AND YE SHALL BE BETRAYED BOTH BY PARENTS, AND BRETHREN, AND KINSFOLKS, AND FRIENDS; AND SOME OF YOU SHALL THEY CAUSE TO BE PUT TO DEATH]. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. “But there shall not a hair of your head perish. [IN YOUR PATIENCE POSSESS YE YOUR SOULS]” (Luke 21:16–19).
“[AND THE BROTHER SHALL DELIVER UP THE BROTHER TO DEATH], and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: [BUT HE THAT ENDURETH TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED]” (Matthew 10:21-22).
“[AND FEAR NOT THEM WHICH KILL THE BODY, BUT ARE NOT ABLE TO KILL THE SOUL]: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).
“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and [HE THAT HATETH HIS LIFE IN THIS WORLD SHALL KEEP IT UNTO LIFE ETERNAL]. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be” (Matthew 12:24-26).
The Apostle Paul said: “[HE THAT SPARED NOT HIS OWN SON, BUT DELIVERED HIM UP FOR US ALL], how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth” (Romans 8:32-33).
“[WHAT SHALL WE THEN SAY TO THESE THINGS? IF GOD BE FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US]?” (Romans 8:31).
“As it is written, [FOR THY SAKE WE ARE KILLED ALL THE DAY LONG; WE ARE ACCOUNTED AS SHEEP FOR THE SLAUGHTER]. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, [SHALL BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD, WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS] our Lord” (Romans 8:36-39).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).
