“You will hear of wars and reports of wars; see that you are not alarmed, for these things must happen, but it will not yet be the end. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be famines and earthquakes from place to place. All these are the beginning of the labor pains. Then they will hand you over to persecution, and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of my name. And then many will be led into sin; they will betray and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and deceive many; and because of the increase of evildoing, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved.” (Matthew 24:6-13)
The biblical passage, written about 2,000 years ago, seems to fit like a glove today… watch Nightly News on television if you have any doubt. Ironically, Apostasy is rampant worldwide, but Approach God and consider Spiritual Growth.
