When TIME IS UP there will be NO MORE TIME (Matthew 24:36) Revelation 11:18)!

This world of VANITY is COMING to an END (Isaiah 65:17) (Jeremiah 4:23) (1 Peter 21:33) (Mark 13:31) (2 Peter 3:10) (Revelation 21:1).

“[FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, PEACE AND SAFETY; THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM], as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

“[UPON THE WICKED HE SHALL RAIN SNARES, FIRE AND BRIMSTONE], and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup” (Psalm 11:6).

“[FOR THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS WITH GOD]” (1 Corinthians 3:19).

“[IF ANY MAN LOVES THE WORLD, THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM].

[FOR ALL THAT IS IN THE WORLD], the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, [IS NOT OF THE FATHER], but is of the world.

[AND THE WORLD PASSETH AWAY], and the lust thereof: [BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF GOD ABIDETH FOREVER]” (1 John 2:15–17).

“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]” (John 3:16).

“[HE THAT BELIEVETH ON THE SON HATH EVERLASTING LIFE]: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).

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

JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of God says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: [REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL]” (Mark 1:15). “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3). “[FOR I CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, NOT TO DO MINE OWN WILL], but the will of him that sent me” (John 6:38).

“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).

“[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).

Are we living in the END OF DAYS or END OF YEARS?

All over social media channels so called preachers, prophets and so on are all sounding the alarm that these are the end of years and to get ready for the coming of Jesus.

DO NOT BE DECEIVED!

These are NOT THE END OF DAYS or END OF YEARS!

The Antichrist and Satan, the Seventh and Eighth world kings have NOT RISEN TO POWER as yet (Daniel 8:23–24) (Daniel 11:36–37) (Revelation 17:10-11)!

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and [WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN OF THY COMING, AND OF THE END OF THE WORLD]?” (Matthew 24:3).

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, [TAKE HEED THAT NO MAN DECEIVE YOU]. [FOR MANY SHALL COME IN MY NAME], saying, [I AM CHRIST; AND SHALL DECEIVE MANY]” (Matthew 24:4-5).

“[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” (Matthew 24:24-25).

“[FOR NATION SHALL RISE AGAINST NATION], and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [AND YE SHALL HEAR OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS]: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, [BUT THE END IS NOT YET]” (Matthew 24:6–7).

The prophet Daniel explained said: “[AND IN THE LATTER TIME OF THEIR KINGDOM, WHEN THE TRANSGRESSORS ARE COME TO THE FULL, A KING OF FIERCE COUNTENANCE, AND UNDERSTANDING DARK SENTENCES, SHALL STAND UP]. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people” (Daniel 8:23–24).

“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, [AND BY PEACE SHALL DESTROY MANY]: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand” (Daniel 8:25).

“[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).

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).

JERUSALEM: keep eyes on JERUSALEM.

What are the KEY SIGNS indicating the imminent return of Jesus?

The key signs will be in the JERUSALEM.

What did our Lord, Savior and King explain to his disciples when they asked: “Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be [THE SIGN OF THY COMING, AND OF THE END OF THE WORLD]?” (Matthew 24:3).

“When ye therefore shall [SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, [STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE], standing where it ought not (whoso readeth, let him understand)” (Matthew 24:15).

“And when ye shall [SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES], then know that the desolation thereof is nigh” (Luke 21:20).

“[THEN LET THEM WHICH BE IN JUDÆA FLEE INTO THE MOUNTAINS]. Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house. Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:16-21).

“And EXCEPT THOSE DAYS SHOULD BE SHORTENED, there should [NO FLESH BE SAVED: BUT FOR THE ELECT’S SAKE] those days [SHALL BE SHORTENED]” (Matthew 24:22).

“[IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS] shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:”(Matthew 24:29).

“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, [AND THEY SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY]” (Matthew 24:30).

“[SO LIKEWISE YE, WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS COME TO PASS], know ye that the Kingdom of God is nigh at hand; then look up, and lift up your heads; for your [REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH]” (Luke 21:31, 28).

“[BEHOLD, I COME AS A THIEF]. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).

“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).
The Face Of Christ In The Sky

We must keep our HEARTS set on HEAVEN!

As time counts down towards the end on this earth, we will have to endure trials and tribulations. We must keep in our hearts that there is a world without end in heaven that we can only begin to imagine what GOD has prepared for HIS CHILDREN!

“[FOR SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD MEN HAVE NOT HEARD, NOR PERCEIVED BY THE EAR, NEITHER HATH THE EYE SEEN], O God, beside thee, what [HE HATH PREPARED FOR HIM THAT WAITETH FOR HIM]” (Isaiah 64:4).

“[OUR SOUL WAITETH] for the LORD: he is our help and our shield” (Psalm 33:20). “It is good that a man should [BOTH HOPE AND QUIETLY WAIT] for the [SALVATION] of the LORD” (Lamentation 3:26).

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for [THE THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN ARE TEMPORAL]; but [THE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN ARE ETERNAL]” (2 Corinthians 4:18).

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, [THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN]” (Hebrews 11:1).

“For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).
James, the brother of Jesus sked: “Hath not God chosen the [POOR OF THIS WORLD RICH IN FAITH], and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” (James 2:5).

Our Lord JESUS says: “[LAY NOT UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES UPON EARTH], where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But [LAY UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES IN HEAVEN], where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. [FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE WILL YOUR HEART BE ALSO]” (Matthew 6:19-21).

“[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).

TIME is RUNNING OUT: The new global rule “NO MASK NO SERVICE” is a forerunner to “NO MARK NO BUY OR SELL” (Revelation 13:16-17).

This is without a doubt PRE-CONDITIONING to accept the MARK OF THE BEAST IN THE RIGHT HAND OR FOREHEAD which is to worship the Antichrist and Satan (Revelation 13:11-15).

DO NOT BE DECEIVED by the Prince of this world, the devil aka Satan because he knows he has a Short time when all his wisdom of how life should be is COMING TO AN END when he and ALL who follow him will go into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT in PERDITION (Revelation 14:10-11).

We must STAND firm in our FAITH of JESUS CHRIST: we must NOT give in or give up to give place to Satan, NEVER (Revelation 13:8-9)! “For ye are all the children of God by [FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS]” (Galatians 3:24).

“[GOD IS LOVE; AND HE THAT DWELLETH IN LOVE DWELLETH IN GOD, AND GOD IN HIM]” (1 John 4:16).

“[FOR GOD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR]; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

“[THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE; BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTETH OUT FEAR]: because fear hath torment. [HE THAT FEARETH IS NOT MADE PERFECT IN LOVE]” (1 John 4:18).

“[LET US THEREFORE COME BOLDLY UNTO THE THRONE OF GRACE], that we may [OBTAIN MERCY], and [FIND GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED]” (Hebrews 4:14-16).

We must PRAY to GOD in the name of JESUS to supply our needs remember these words of our Lord JESUS CHRIST, saying: “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).

“[FEAR NONE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THOU SHALT SUFFER]: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have [TRIBULATION TEN DAYS]: be thou [FAITHFUL] unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life” (Revelation 2:10).

“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).

“[PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU]: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. [LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID]’” (John 14:27).

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

START, STAY and STEADFAST with JESUS to the END because PERILOUS TIMES ARE COMING (Matthew 24:8-28):

Without any doubt a ‘PERFECT STORM’ IS FORMING ALL OVER THIS EARTH as these words are being written THAT WILL SOON BRING ABOUT A DRASTIC CHANGE IN LIFE as we know it all over the world.

“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).

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 hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 21:17-19).

“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).

“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).

“[PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU]: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. [LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED, NEITHER LET IT BE AFRAID]’” (John 14:27).

“[FEAR NONE OF THOSE THINGS WHICH THOU SHALT SUFFER]: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have [TRIBULATION TEN DAYS]: be thou [FAITHFUL] unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life” (Revelation 2:10).

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

Are we in the END OF DAYS or END OF YEARS?

We are NOT in the END OF YEARS as yet because the ANTICHRIST HAS NOT RISEN TO POWER YET! However, without any doubt, in this present time, utmost deception is being used by the “great mystery kingdom” for the eventual rise to power of the seventh world king.

“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).

This seventh world king or Antichrist will be handsome and the most wealthy person, and he will have powers that will exceed those seen by superheroes in the movies (Daniel 8:23–24, 9:16, 11:8, 45) (Revelation 13:13).

When this “…KING OF FIERCE COUNTENANCE…” rises to power he will do so in the spirit of the devil, “the God of forces, a strange god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things” (Daniel 11:38).

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?’” (Revelation 13:4).

“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.

[IF ANY MAN HAVE AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR]” (Revelation 13:8-9).

Who is the Antichrist?

DO NOT BE DECEIVED: The C H R I S T whose name is J E S U S is of the “seed Royal” (1 Kings 11:9-11) (Psalm 89:27, 20) (Acts 3:13-15, 5:31-32) (Revelation 5:5, 22:16).

What is his name?

DO NOT FEAR THE NUMBER ‘666’ and DO NOT BE DECEIVED by ALL pretending to figure out the meaning of “..Six hundred threescore and six..” or “666”. It is the key to unlocking the name of this one world ruler or the seventh king who is the Antichrist.

“[HERE IS WISDOM]. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six” (Revelation 13:18).

“[WISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING]; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7).

“HEAR this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world: Both low and high, rich and poor, together. [MY MOUTH SHALL SPEAK OF WISDOM]; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding” (Psalm 49:1-3).

“For the LORD [GIVETH WISDOM: OUT OF HIS MOUTH COMETH KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING” (Proverbs 2:6).

“[THE THING THAT HATH BEEN, IT IS THAT WHICH SHALL BE]; and that which is done is that which shall be done: [AND THERE IS NO NEW THING UNDER THE SUN]. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us” (Ecclesiastes 1:9-10).

In glory of the FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
End Of Days

REDEMPTION TO HEAVEN: “Christ the [FIRSTFRUITS]; [AFTERWARD THEY THAT ARE CHRIST’S AT HIS COMING]” (1 Corinthians 15:23).

Now, the FIRST TO BE REDEEMED from this earth are NOT CHRISTIANS as is represented in the so called “rapture of the church” doctrine.

God first chose the people of Israel for his inheritance and then sent his Son Jesus to ALL Jews and Gentiles (Luke 2:32) (John 3:16-18) “to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God” (Acts 26:18).

“But thou, [ISRAEL, ART MY SERVANT, JACOB WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN], the seed of Abraham my friend” (Isaiah 41:8). “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and [THE PEOPLE WHOM HE HATH CHOSEN FOR HIS OWN INHERITANCE]” (Psalm 33:12-18).

Jesus underscored this very fact in his communication with a Samaritan woman by a well saying: “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: [FOR SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS]” (John 4:22-24).

The Apostle Paul added, said: “The Gentiles should be fellowheirs, as co-inheritors with the Jews and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel” (Ephesians 3:6).

“[THAT AT THAT TIME YE WERE WITHOUT CHRIST, BEING ALIENS FROM THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL], and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world. [BUT NOW IN CHRIST JESUS YE WHO SOMETIMES WERE FAR OFF ARE MADE NIGH BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST]. For [THROUGH HIM WE BOTH HAVE ACCESS BY ONE SPIRIT UNTO THE FATHER]” (Ephesians 2:12–19).

The FIRSTFRUITS to be redeemed from this earth are the 144,000 servants of God who will be killed or “…slained for the word of God…” (Revelation 6:9-11), and are PRIESTS OF GOD AND OF CHRIST (Revelation 1:1-7, 7:1-3, 20:6). In the Book of Revelation John wrote: “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed [AN HUNDRED AND FORTY AND FOUR THOUSAND OF ALL THE TRIBES OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL]” (Revelation 7:4).

“[THESE ARE THEY WHICH WERE NOT DEFILED WITH WOMEN; FOR THEY ARE VIRGINS]. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. [THESE WERE REDEEMED FROM AMONG MEN, BEING THE FIRSTFRUITS UNTO GOD AND TO THE LAMB]. And in their mouth was found no guile: [FOR THEY ARE WITHOUT FAULT BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD]” (Revelation 14:4).

The Apostle Paul clearly pointed out God’s REDEMPTION PLAN when he wrote: “Christ the [FIRSTFRUITS]; [AFTERWARD THEY THAT ARE CHRIST’S AT HIS COMING]” (1 Corinthians 15:23).

JESUS EXPLAINED IN DETAIL WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN HE COMES ON THE LAST DAY (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). when he will separate the sheep; (those who are Christs) from the goats (those who are the devils) in (Matthew 25, KLV).

“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).

In glory of the FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.

We must NEVER PUT DOWN THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST: NEVER (Matthew 10:38, 16:24)!

The disciple Peter warned us, said: “[BE SOBER, BE VIGILANT]; because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

The Apostle Paul also warned, said: “[FOR MANY WALK, OF WHOM] I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they [ARE THE ENEMIES OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST]: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, [WHO MIND EARTHLY THINGS]” (Philippians 3:18–19).

“[FOR WE WRESTLE] not against flesh and blood, but [AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES, AGAINST POWERS, AGAINST THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, AGAINST SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES]” (Ephesians 6:12).

“[FOR RULERS ARE NOT A TERROR] to good works, but [TO THE EVIL]” (Romans 13:3).
Our Lord JESUS also warned us to be prepared for the COMING END OF YEARS, said: “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 hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls” (Luke 21:17-19).

“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).

“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

“The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil” (John 7:7).

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