And what is the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” (v3) "Then Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics and earthquakes in various places. All these events are the beginning of birth pains." (vv4-8) Persecutions Predicted “Then they will hand you over for persecution (tribulation, distress), and they will kill you. You will be hated by all nations because of My name. Then many will take offense, betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be delivered (saved). This good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the world (inhabited earth) as a testimony to all nations. And then the end will come." (vv9-14) Where will you spend ETERNITY?
