Jesus replied. "If any loves me he will obey my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. "He that loves me not does not obey words, and yet the words to which you are listening are not mine, but the Father's who sent me. "All this I told you while still with you. read more.
"But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and bring to your remembrance everything that I have told you. "Peace I leave with you. My own peace I give to you. It is not the world's 'Peace' I give you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. "You heard me tell you, 'I am going away, and yet I am coming to you.' If you loved me you would have been glad because I said 'I am going to the Father,' for my Father is greater than I. "And now I tell you this before it happens, so that when it does happen you may believe. "I shall not talk with you much more, for the Prince of this world is coming.

Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to meet him, I entreat you, brothers, not to be "quickly shaken out of your wits" and not to be agitated either by a spirit or by a message, or by an epistle purporting to be from me, saying, "The Day of the Lord is at hand." Let no one deceive you by any means. For it will not come until after the Great Apostasy, and the revealing of the Man of Sin, the son of perdition, read more.
the adversary, who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God, or is an object of worship; so that he takes his seat in the Temple of God, and vaunts himself as God. Do you not recall that I often told you this, when I was with you? And now you know what is holding him back, to the end that he may be revealed in his appointed time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only there is one who is hindering and will continue to hinder till he be removed; and then the lawless one will be revealed. Him the Lord will consume with the breath of his lips, and destroy with the brightness of his appearing; even he whose coming is according to the energy of Satan, in every power and sign and lying wonder, and with all deceit of unrighteousness for those who are perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth for their salvation. For this reason God is sending on them an energy of delusion, that they should put faith in a falsehood; so that they all should be condemned, who are faithless to the truth, but take pleasure in evil.

My children, this is the last hour, and as you have heard that an antichrist was coming, and now many antichrists are already risen, whence we may know that it is the last hour. They came forth from us, but they did not belong to us. If they had belonged to us they would certainly have remained with us, but they went out that they might be manifest that they all are not of us.

Do not believe every spirit, beloved, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets are gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God; every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit which confesses him not, is not from God. And this is that spirit of Antichrist of which you have heard that it is coming, and that now it is already in the world.


Let no one deceive you by any means. For it will not come until after the Great Apostasy, and the revealing of the Man of Sin, the son of perdition, the adversary, who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God, or is an object of worship; so that he takes his seat in the Temple of God, and vaunts himself as God.

Then Jesus left the Temple courts and was walking away, when his disciples came to point out to him the Temple buildings. "You see all these buildings?" he answered them; "I tell you solemnly that there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be torn down." When he had seated himself on the Mount of Olives, his disciples came to him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?" read more.
"Take care," Jesus answered, "that no one mislead you; for many will come in my name saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see to it that you are not afraid. Such things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these things are the beginning of birth-pangs. Then they will deliver you up to suffer affliction, and will put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. And then many will stumble and fall, and will betray one another, and hate one another. Many false prophets will rise up and mislead many; and because of the increase of iniquity the love of the majority will grow cold; but he who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be proclaimed throughout the whole inhabited earth, for a testimony to the Gentiles, and then will come the end. "So when you see the Abomination of Desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place let the reader take note of this, then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains; let him who is upon the housetop not go down to get the things in his house, and the man in the field not turn back to get his cloak. Alas for thee women who are with child, and for the nursing mothers in those days! "But pray that your flight may not be in the winter; nor on a Sabbath; for then shall be a time of great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never shall be again. And if these days had not been shortened, no flesh would have been saved; but for the elect's sake these days will be cut short. "If at that time any one should say to you, 'See, here is the Christ!' or 'There he is!' believe him not. For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will work great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if it were possible, the very elect. See, I have forewarned you! So if they say to you, "'See, He is in the desert,' do not go out there. "'See, He is in the inner room,' do not believe it. For just as the lightning flashes from the east, and is seen even to the west; so will be the coming of the Son of man. Wherever the corpse lies, there will the vultures flock together. "But immediately after the tribulation of those days, "The sun will be darkened, The moon will not shed her light, The stars will fall from the sky, And the powers of the heavens will be shaken. "Then the signs of the Son of man will appear in the sky; and then all the tribes of the earth will lament, when they see the Son of man coming upon the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send forth his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather his elect together from the four winds, from utmost heaven to utmost earth. "Learn from the fig tree, her parable; when her branches are become soft, and put forth leaves, you know that summer is near; so you also, when you see these signs, know that He is near, at the very doors. I tell you in solemn truth, that the present generation shall not pass away till all these things happen. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. "But no one knows about that day and hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. And as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For just as in the days before the deluge they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the very day when Noah entered the ark, nor did they know until the deluge came and swept them away; so will be the coming of the son of man. At that time there will be two men in the field; one will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and the other left. Keep guard then, for you do not know the day on which your Master is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have been on his guard, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for in an hour when you do not expect him, the Son of man is coming.

As Jesus was walking out of the Temple courts, one of his disciples said to him, "Look, Teacher, what wonderful stones and buildings these are!" "You see these mighty buildings? There shall not be left here one stone upon another which shall not be thrown down," he answered. When he had seated himself on the Mount of Olives, facing the Temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, read more.
"Tell us when these things shall be, and what shall be the sign that all these predictions are about to be fulfilled." So Jesus began to tell them. "Be ye watchful lest any one mislead you. Many will come in my name, saying, 'I am he,' and will mislead many. But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars do not be dismayed, such things must come, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise in arms against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines; these are the beginning of birth-pangs. "You yourselves must be on your guard. They will hand you over to the courts, and you will be flogged on the synagogues; and you will stand before rulers and kings for my sake, to witness to them for me. But the gospel must first be proclaimed to all the nations. When, however, they are leading you all to trial, do not worry beforehand about what you are to say, but whatever is given you in that hour, that say, for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit. "And brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child, and children will rise up against their parents, and have them put to death. You will be hated by all men for my name's sake, but he that endures to the end shall be saved. "But when you see the Abomination of Desolation 'standing where he ought not' (let the reader ponder this), then let those in Judea flee to the mountains; let him who is on the housetop not go down, nor go in to get anything out of his house; and he who is in the field, let him not turn back to get his cloak. And alas for the pregnant women, and for those that are nursing their infants in those days! Pray that it may not come in the winter. For those will be days of suffering the like of which has never been from the beginning of God's creation until now, and never shall be. And had not the Lord cut short those days, not a single person would escape; but for the elect's sake whom he has chosen, he has cut them short. "At that time if any one tell you, 'See, here is Christ,' or 'See, there he is,' do not believe it; for false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show signs and wonders, to lead astray the very chosen, if they can. Be on your guard! I have told you it all beforehand. "But when the tribulation is past, in those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not shed her light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. Then will they see the Son of man coming in clouds, with great power and glory. Then he will send forth the angels and gather his chosen from the four winds, from uttermost earth to uttermost sky. "From the fig tree learn now her parable; as soon as ever her branches are full of sap and bursting into leaf, you know that summer is near. So also do you, whenever you see these things happening, know that He is near, at your very door. I tell you truly that the present generation shall not pass until all these things begin to happen.

And to some who were about the Temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones votive offerings, he said, "As for what you are looking at, the time is coming when not one stone will be left upon another, that shall not be thrown down." "Teacher, when will this be?" they asked him, "and what shall be the sign that these things are about to happen?" read more.
"Take heed," he answered, "that you are not led astray, for many will come in my name, saying, 'I am he,' and 'The time is close at hand.' Do not go and follow them. "And when you shall hear of wars and tumults, do not be frightened; for these things must happen first, but the end does not come immediately." Then he said to them. "Nation shall rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom. "and there shall be great earthquakes, and, in many places, famines and pestilences; and there shall be terror and great portents from heaven. "But before all these things happen, they will apprehend you and persecute you and deliver you to the synagogues and to prisons, and bring you before kings and governors for the sake of my name. "It shall turn out for a testimony to you. "So settle it in your hearts not to prepare a defense beforehand, "for I will give you utterance and a wisdom which none of your adversaries will be able to answer or withstand. "You will be betrayed even by parents or brothers and kinsfolk, and friends. "Some of you they will put to death. And you shall be hated by all men for the sake of my name. "And not a hair on your head shall perish. "In your patience you shall purchase your souls. "But when you see Jerusalem encompassed with armies, then know that her desolation is at hand. "Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let those who are in the country enter not in. "For these are the days of vengeance and of fulfilment of all that is written. "Woe to women with child and to those who are nursing infants in those days! For sore anguish will come upon the land, and wrath upon all his people. "They shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led captive among the Gentiles, and Jerusalem shall be trampled under foot by the Gentiles, until the appointed times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. "And there will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roar of the sea and the billows; "men lifeless through fear, and foreboding of that which is about to come upon the habitable earth. For the powers of the heavens shall be shaken, "and then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud, with power and great glory. "But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, lift your heads! for your redemption is drawing near." And he told them a parable. "Look at the fig tree and all the trees! When they put out their leaves you can see for yourselves that summer is coming. "So whenever you see all these things comings to pass, you know that the kingdom of God is near. "In solemn truth I tell you that this generation shall not pass away until all this happens. "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall never pass away. "But take heed to yourselves lest your hearts be surcharged with self-indulgence and drunkenness and worldly cares, and that day catches you suddenly like a trap. "For it will come upon all the dwellers on the face of the earth. "So be on your guard at all times, praying that you may be worthy to escape these things that shall come to pass, and to take your stand in the presence of the Son of man."

He that overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God; and he shall go out from it nevermore. And I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
