We are presently living in a time where our Lord Jesus foretold saying: “And because [INIQUITY SHALL ABOUND], the [LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD]” (Matthew 24:12).
There is a spirit of disobedience unfolding every day in this world that is only going to get worse (Ephesians 5:5-6)!
“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).
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).
“These things must come to pass” (Luke 21:9).
“[BUT HE THAT SHALL ENDURE UNTO THE END, THE SAME SHALL BE SAVED]. [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 24:13-14).
“[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).
“[IF ANY MAN WILL COME AFTER ME], let him deny himself, and [TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY, AND FOLLOW ME]” (Luke 9:23).
“And [HE THAT TAKETH NOT HIS CROSS], and [FOLLOWETH AFTER ME, IS NOT WORTHY OF ME]” (Matthew 10:38).
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. [IN THE WORLD YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION]: but be of [GOOD CHEER]; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
“I [AM WITH YOU ALWAY, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD]. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
