But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know Him that sent me.

persecutions, sufferings; such as came to me in Antioch, in Iconium, in Lystra; such persecutions as I endured: and the Lord delivered me out of them all. But truly all wishing to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

And before all of these things, they will lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you into their synagogues and prisons, led before kings and governors on account of my name.

Remember the word which I spoke to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, they will also keep yours.






Simon Peter, the servant of God and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those receiving like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. Grace to you and peace be multiplied in the perfect knowledge of Jesus Christ, our Lord. As His divine power having given unto us all things which appertain to life and godliness, through the perfect knowledge of the one having called us to his own glory and virtue: read more.
through which precious and greatest promises have been given unto us; that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, escaping the corruption that is in the world through lust. And in harmony with this same thing also, add to your faith heroism; and to heroism, knowledge; and to knowledge holiness; and to holiness patience; and patience, godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness divine love. For these things, being in you and overflowing, render you neither barren nor unfruitful in the perfect knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ; for he unto whom these things are not present is blind, not seeing afar off, having received the forgetfulness of his purgation from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be the more diligent to make your calling and election sure: for doing these things you can never fall. For in this way an entrance will be administered unto you abundantly into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.






For, I think, God has exhibited us apostles the last, as exposed to death: that we may become a theater to the world, and to angels, and to men. We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are glorious, but we are dishonorable. until this hour we both hunger and thirst, and suffer for insufficient clothing, and are buffeted; and we tramp, read more.
and we toil working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure it; being scandalized, we entreat: we have become as the offscourings of the world, the refuse of all things until now.

And He departing out from the temple, one of His disciples says to Him, Teacher, behold, how great stones and how great buildings! And Jesus responding said to him, Do you see these great buildings? stone may not be left upon stone, which may not be thrown down. And He sitting upon the Mount of Olives in front of 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 when all these things may be about to have an end? And Jesus began to say to them, See, lest any one may deceive you. For many will come in my name, saying, I am He; and will deceive many. I And when you may hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not disturbed: for it behooves it to be so; but the end is not yet. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earth-quakes in divers places; and there shall be famines. These are the beginnings of travails. But you take heed to yourselves: for they will deliver you into councils; and will beat you in the synagogues: and you shall stand before governors and kings on account of me, for a testimony unto them. And it behooves the gospel first to be preached to all the nations. And when they may lead you forth, delivering you up, do not be solicitous what you may speak, nor meditate: but whatsoever may be given to you in that hour, speak this: for you are not those speaking, but the Holy Spirit. And brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father the child; and the children will rise up against the parents, and put them to death. And you shall be hated by all on account of my name: but the one persevering to the end, the same shall be saved.

Behold, I send you forth like sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the sanhedrins, and will beat you in their synagogues; and they will lead you before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony unto them and the Gentiles. read more.
And when they may deliver you, be not solicitous how or what you may speak: for it will be given unto you in that hour what you may say. For you are not those speaking, but the Spirit of your Father is speaking in you. And brother will deliver brother unto death, and the father the child: and children will rise up against parents, and put them to death. And you will be hated by all on account of my name: but he that persevereth unto the end, the same shall be saved. And when they may persecute you in this city, fly to another: for truly I say unto you, You may not complete the cities of Israel, until the Son of man may come. The disciple is not above his teacher, nor the servant above his lord. It is sufficient for the disciple that he may be as his teacher, and the servant, as his lord: if they call the landlord Beelzebul, how much more the inmates of his house?

Jesus having gone out departed from the temple, and His disciples came to Him to show Him the buildings of the temple. And responding, He said to them, Do you not see all these? Truly, I say unto you, that stone may not be left here upon stone, which shall not be thrown down. And He sitting upon the Mount of Olives; the disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, when these things shall be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming and the end of the age? read more.
And Jesus responding said to them, See, lest any one may deceive you. For many will come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and they will deceive many. And you will be about to hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you are not disturbed: for it behooveth all these things to be, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines and earthquakes in divers places. And all these things are the beginning of travails. Then they will deliver you into tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of my name, and then many will be offended; and they will betray one another, and hate one another.

And certain ones speaking concerning the temple, that it was ornamented with beautiful stones and offerings, He said, These things which you see, the days will come, in which stone will not be left upon stone, which shall not be thrown down. And they asked Him, saying, Teacher, when then shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when these things may be about to come to pass? read more.
And He said, See that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, saying, I am He; and The time is at hand: go ye not after them. And when ye may hear of wars and commotions, be not affrighted: for it behooveth these things first to take place; but the end is not immediately. Then He said to them, Nation shall rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in divers places; and there shall be great terrors and signs from heaven. And before all of these things, they will lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you into their synagogues and prisons, led before kings and governors on account of my name. And it shall come to pass to you for a testimony. Place it in your hearts, not to premeditate your defense: for I will give to you mouth and wisdom, which all who are opposed to you will not be able to gainsay nor resist. And you shall be delivered up also by your parents, and brothers, and relatives, and friends; and they will kill some of you. And you shall be hated by all, on account of my name: and not a hair from your head shall perish. In your patience gain your souls.

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me not producing fruit, He takes it away: and every one producing fruit, He purifies it, that it may produce more fruit. So ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. read more.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch is not able to produce fruit of itself, unless it may abide in the vine; so you are not able, unless you may abide in me. I am the vine, and ye are the branches. The one abiding in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit: because you are not able to do anything without me. If any one may not abide in me, he is cast out as a branch, and withered; and they gather it, and cast it into the fire, and it is burnt. If you may abide in me, and my words may abide in you, ask whatsoever you may wish, and it shall be done unto you. In this my Father is glorified, that you may bear much fruit; and ye shall be my disciples. As the Father loved me, I also loved you: abide in my love. If you may keep my commandments, abide in my love; as I have kept the commandments of my Father, and I abide in His love. I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. This is my commandment, that you may love one another, as I loved you. No one has greater love than this, that he may lay down his soul for his friends. You are my friends, if you may do those things which I command you. No longer do I call you servants; because the servant knows not what his lord is doing: but I have called you friends; because all things which I heard with my Father, I made known unto you. You did not choose me, but I chose you, and placed you in your position, that you may go forth and bear fruit, and your fruit may abide: in order that He may give you whatsoever you may ask in my name. I command these things unto you, that you must love one another with divine love. If the world hates you, know that it first hated me. If you were of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, on this account the world hates you. Remember the word which I spoke to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, they will also keep yours.

I have spoken these things to you, that you may not be offended. They will put you out of the synagogues: but the hour is coming, that every one killing you may think he is offering service to God. And they will do these things, because they did not know the Father, nor me. read more.
But I have spoken these things to you, that when the hour may come, you may remember them, that I did say them to you. But I said not these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.





And before all of these things, they will lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you into their synagogues and prisons, led before kings and governors on account of my name.

Remember the word which I spoke to you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you; if they kept my word, they will also keep yours.

Be sober, watch. The devil is walking round like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour: whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that it is for you to complete the same sufferings in this world along with your brotherhood. But the God of all grace, the one having called you into his own eternal glory in Christ, will himself make you perfect, having suffered a little while, will establish you, will strengthen you, will settle you.
