Dan 7:20 I also wanted to know about the ten horns
on its head and about the other horn that came up, before which three of
them fell--the horn that looked more imposing than the others and that
had eyes and a mouth that spoke boastfully.
Dan 7:21 As I watched, this horn was waging war
against the saints and defeating them,
Dan 7:22 until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced
judgment in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came when
they possessed the kingdom.
Dan 7:23 "He gave me this explanation: 'The fourth
beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different
from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling
it down and crushing it.
Dan 7:25 He will speak against the Most High and
oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints
will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time.
Dan 8:12 Because of rebellion, the host of the
saints and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything
it did, and truth was thrown to the ground.
Dan 8:13 Then I heard a holy one speaking, and
another holy one said to him, "How long will it take for the vision to
be fulfilled--the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion
that causes desolation, and the surrender of the sanctuary and of the host
that will be trampled underfoot?"
Dan 8:23 "In the latter part of their reign, when
rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue,
Dan 8:24 He will become very strong, but not by
his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in
whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people.
Dan 8:25 He will cause deceit to prosper, and he
will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy
many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed,
but not by human power.
Dan 11:33 "Those who are wise will instruct
many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured
Dan 11:34 When they fall, they will receive a little
help, and many who are not sincere will join them.
Dan 11:35 Some of the wise will stumble, so that
they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end,
for it will still come at the appointed time.
Dan 12:1 "At that time Michael, the great prince
who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress
such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But
at that time your people--everyone whose name is found written in the book--will
Mat 10:21 "Brother will betray brother to death,
and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have
them put to death.
Mat 10:22 All men will hate you because of me,
but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
John 16:1 "All this I have told you so that you
will not go astray.
John 16:2 They will put you out of the synagogue;
in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering
a service to God.
John 16:3 They will do such things because they
have not known the Father or me.
Mat 24:9 "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted
and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
Mat 24:10 At that time many will turn away from
the faith and will betray and hate each other,
Mat 24:21 For then there will be great distress,
unequaled from the beginning of the world until now--and never to be equaled
Mat 24:22 If those days had not been cut short,
no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be
Rev 6:9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under
the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of
God and the testimony they had maintained.
Rev 6:10 They called out in a loud voice, "How
long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of
the earth and avenge our blood?"
Rev 6:11 Then each of them was given a white robe,
and they were told to wait a little longer, until the number of their fellow
servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed.
Rev 7:13 Then one of the elders asked me, "These
in white robes--who are they, and where did they come from?"
Rev 7:14 I answered, "Sir, you know." And he said,

their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev 13:7 He was given power to make war against
the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe,
people, language and nation.
Rev 13:10 If anyone is to go into captivity, into
captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the
sword he will be killed. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness
on the part of the saints.
Rev 20:4 I saw thrones on which were seated those
who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who
had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the
word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not
received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life
and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
