Matthew 24:9-14 "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
Matthew 24:16-31 "Then let them which be in Judaea 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. And
except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be
saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then
if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe
it not. 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.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert;
go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto
the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For
wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered
together. 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. 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 24:36-46 "But of that day and hour knoweth no
man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of
man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were
eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day
that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came,
and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man
be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the
other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall
be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what
hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the
house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have
watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the
Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his
lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due
season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall
find so doing."
1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 "For this we say unto you by the
word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming
of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 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. Wherefore comfort one another
with these words."
Revelation 3:10 "Because you have kept My command to persevere,
I also will keep you from the hour of trial, which shall come upon the whole world."
