    Arrested… beaten… testimony… the Gospel spread… then the end. 9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. 10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations. 11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost. 12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Mark 13

    On a similar note is this subtle connection. 1. We are saved by the work of Christ, not our own good works. 2. The planet is saved by the work of Christ (His return and establishment of paradise), not our own good works to ‘bring in the kingdom.’ Doing good works is good but we must look at the motive and make sure it is not the same as ‘fig leaf’ religion, or the offering of Cain versus Abel. Is it faith in God and His salvation, or do we think we can take matters into our own hands for deliverance? The apocalypse must come first, it is written and there is no circumventing it.

    And this overlaps with the prosperity gospel heresy. They have that thing about ‘word of faith’ speaking things into existence ‘positive confession’ garbage. This is totally distinct from say, casting out demons, because it’s self centered. But I have noticed so much about manipulating one’s own reality for their own benefit in the apostasy, and that is exactly what witchcraft does, and even with the same ways often, but it all goes unnoticed by the modern ‘church.’
