Fear nothing you are about to be suffering. The adversary is about to be casting some of you into jail, that you may be tested
Become faithful until death, and I shall be giving you the wreath/crown of life.
“The just shall live by faith, and if he should ever be shrinking back, My soul will not delight in Him.” Yet we are not of those shrinking back into destruction, but of faith into the procuring of the soul.
For if we died together, we shall also be living together; if we are enduring, we shall be reigning together also; if we denying Him, He also will be disowning us; if we are disbelieving, He is remaining faithful --- He cannot disown Himself.
II Timothy 2:11-13
Brother shall be giving up brother to death, and father, child, and children shall be rising up against parents, and shall be putting them to death. And you shall be hated by all because of My name. Yet he who endures to the consummation, he shall be saved.
We are counting as blessed those who endure. You hear of the endurance of Job, and you perceive the consummation of the Lord. For very compassionate is the Lord.
That the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
