Signs of the times

 

"Blessed are you when men hate you, 

and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast 

out your name as evil  for the Son of Manís sake.

 

"Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! 

For indeed your reward is great in heaven....

 

"Woe to you when all men speak well of you,

For so did their fathers to the false prophets."

Luke 6:22-23, 26

See also Matthew 24:9

To prepare His people for future events, Jesus told His disciples,

"Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near... Watch therefore...." Matthew  24:32-33, 42
