Dan 8:25   He will cause deceit to prosper
through his cunning and by his influence,
and in his own mind he will make himself great.
In a time of peace, he will destroy many;
he will even stand against the Prince of princes.
But he will be shattered, not by human hands. 
Matt 24:3-7  As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?" And Jesus answered them, "See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and they will lead many astray.  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.
 Mark 13:4-7  "Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when all these things are about to be accomplished?"  And Jesus began to say to them, "See that no one leads you astray. Many will come in my name, saying, 'I am he!' and they will lead many astray.  And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. This must take place, but the end is not yet.
Luke 21:7-9    And they asked him, "Teacher, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when these things are about to take place?"  And he said, "See that you are not led astray. For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am he!' and, 'The time is at hand!' Do not go after them.   And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified, for these things must first take place, but the end will not be at once."
Act 17:30   Times of ignorance God overlooked. Now He Commands all people everywhere to Repent, because He has fixed a day on which He will Judge the World in righteousness by a Man whom He has appointed; & of this He has given assurance to all by Raising Him from the Dead. 

Isa14:13 The 5 "I WILL's": 
1 Ascend to Heaven; Above the Stars of God 
2 Set my Throne on High;
3 Sit on the the Mount of Assembly in the Far Reaches of the North.; 
4 Ascend Above the Heights of the Clouds;
5 Make "Myself" like the Most High.'
But you are brought down to Sheol to the far reaches of the Pit
Rom 14:17  The "Kingdom of God" is not a matter of Eating & Drinking but of "Righteousness" and"Peace" and "Joy" in the "Holy Spirit". Whoever thus serves "Christ" is Acceptable to "God" and Approved by 'Men'. So then let us 'pursue' what makes for "Peace" & for "Mutual Upbuilding"
The Preeminence of Christ

  Col 1:15-20  15 "He" is the Image of the invisible God, the "Firstborn of all Creation". 16 For by "Him"    all things were Created, in Heaven and on Earth, visible and invisible, whether Thrones or Dominions    or Rulers or Authorities—all things were Created through "Him" and for "Him". 17 And "He" is before    all things, and in "Him" all things hold together. 18 And "He" is the Head of the Body, the Church.   "He"   is the Beginning, the Firstborn from the Dead, that in everything "He" might be "Preeminent".   19  For in "Him" all the "Fullness of God" was pleased to Dwell, 20 and through "Him" to Reconcile to   "Himself"   all things, whether on Earth or in Heaven, Making "Peace" by the Blood of "His" "Cross".
1 Peter 5:6-9   If you will humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, in his good time he will lift you up.  7 Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.  8 Be careful-watch out for attacks from Satan, your great enemy. He prowls around like a hungry, roaring lion, looking for some victim to tear apart. 9 Stand firm when he attacks. Trust the Lord; and remember that other Christians all around the world are going through these sufferings too. 

Heb 1  In these Last Days
God has spoken to us by His Son whom
He has Appointed Heir of all things & through whom
He made the Universe.
He is the Radiance of His Glory
the Exact Expression of His Nature" and
He Sustains all things by His Powerful Word 
The Lesson of the Fig Tree
28 "From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near.  29 So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that he is near, at the very gates.  30  Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.  31  Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. 

No One Knows That Day or Hour
32 "But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.  33  Be on guard, keep awake. For you do not know when the time will come.  34  It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to stay awake.  35  Therefore stay awake—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the cock crows, or in the morning—  36 lest he come suddenly and find you asleep.  37 And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake."    Mark 13:28-37
The Importance of Watching

​Lk 21:32-35   32 "I solemnly declare to you that when these things happen, the end of this age has come. 33 And though all heaven and earth shall pass away, yet my words remain forever true. 

34-35 "Watch out! Don't let my sudden coming catch you unawares; don't let me find you living in careless ease, carousing and drinking, and occupied with the problems of this life, like all the rest of the world. 36 Keep a constant watch. And pray that if possible you may arrive in my presence without having to experience these horrors." 
Philippians 2:14-18    Do all things without "Grumbling or Questioning", that you may be Blameless and Innocent, "Children of God" without Blemish in the midst of a Crooked and Twisted Generation, among whom you "Shine as Lights" in the World, "Holding Fast" to the "Word" of "Life, so that in the "Day of Christ" I may be proud that I 'did not' "Run in vain" or "Labor in vain".   Even if I am to be "Poured out as a Drink Offering" upon the "Sacrificial Offering" of Your Faith, I am Glad and Rejoice with you all.   Likewise You also should be Glad and Rejoice with me. 
Rev 6:1-2   Now I Watched when "The Lamb" "Opened" 'One' of the "Seven Seals", and I Heard 'One' of the "Four "Living Creatures" say with a "Voice" like Thunder", "Come!"   And I Looked, and 'Behold', a "White Horse"! And its"Rider" had a 'Bow', and a 'Crown' was Given to 'him', and 'he' Came Out "Conquering, and to Conquer".
