But realize this, that in the
difficult times will come.
--2 Timothy 3:1
" The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. --- 1 Peter 4:7-9
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. --- 1 Peter 4:12-13
Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good. --- 1 Peter 4:19
" ....for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. "
--Revelation 12:10b-11 NASB
