“[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).
“[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).
Our Lord Jesus says: “[FOR MANY SHALL COME IN MY NAME], saying, I am Christ; [AND SHALL DECEIVE MANY]. And ye shall hear of [WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS]: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, [BUT THE END IS NOT YET]” (Matthew 24:5-6).
“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 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. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. [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 24:7-14).
“[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: 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 24:29-30).
“And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:31).
“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).
