‘But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall increase.’ Daniel 12:4
‘From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that He is near, at the very gates.’ Mark 13:28-29
‘As it was in the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man’ Mat 24:37 (The Days of Noah were categorised by rebellion against the moral laws of God, in Greek Apostasia, lawlessness, the earths crust coming under pressure, signs in the heavens and true believers a tiny minority mocked by the world which, like Sodom and Gomorrah, has become a stench in God’s nostrils and is ripe for sudden, unexpected judgement.)
‘God is our refuge and strength, a very well proved help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth be moved, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;’ Psalm 46:1-2

‘The kings of the earth …, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and His anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds asunder, and cast their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision. Then He will speak to them in His wrath and terrify them in His fury…’ Psalm 2:2-5
‘…when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flames of fire, inflicting vengeance upon those who do not know God and upon those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus. They shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion from the presence of the Lord…’ 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9
‘And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent’. John 17:3
