Rev 20:8  and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth–Gog and Magog–and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.

SUFFER

JESUS SUFFERED

Mat_16:21  From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.

Mat_17:12  But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.”

Luk_24:26  Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”

Luk_24:46  He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,

Act_3:18  But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Messiah would suffer.

Heb_2:9  But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

Heb_12:2  fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Heb_2:10  In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.

Heb_2:18  Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Heb_5:8  Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered

Heb_13:12  And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood.

1Pe_2:21  To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.

1Pe_2:23  When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

1Pe_2:24  “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”

1Pe_3:18  For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.

1Pe_4:1  Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin.

Mat_20:19  and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”

Mar_15:15  Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.

Act_1:3  After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.

PAUL SUFFERED and THE DISCIPLES SUFFERED

Act_9:16  I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.”

Act_16:40  After Paul and Silas came out of the prison, they went to Lydia’s house, where they met with the brothers and sisters and encouraged them. Then they left.

Act_22:4  I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison,

Act_22:24  the commander ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks. He directed that he be flogged and interrogated in order to find out why the people were shouting at him like this.

Col_1:24  Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.

2Co_11:23  Are they servants of Christ? (I am out of my mind to talk like this.) I am more. I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again.

2Co_1:6  If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.

1Th_2:2  We had previously suffered and been treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, but with the help of our God we dared to tell you his gospel in the face of strong opposition.

Mar_13:9  “You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them.

Act_16:23  After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully.

Luk_21:12  “But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.

Act_12:5  So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.

WE WILL SUFFER FOR HIS NAME’S SAKE

Php_1:29  For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him,

1Pe_1:6  In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.

1Pe_2:20  But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.

1Pe_3:14  But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.”

1Pe_3:17  For it is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

1Pe_4:16  However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.

1Pe_4:19  So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.

Rev_2:10  Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.

Luk_21:9  When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”

1Th_2:14  For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of God’s churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own people the same things those churches suffered from the Jews

Heb_10:34  You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.

1Pe_5:10  And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

Rev_9:5  They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes.

1Co_4:9  For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like those condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to human beings.

1Pe_4:1  Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin.

1Pe_2:24  “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”

Mat_5:10  Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Rom_6:16  Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey–whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

Rom_6:18  You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

Rom_6:19  I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness.

Rom_6:20  When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.

Act_5:41  The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.

Rom_5:3  Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;

1Th_1:6  You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.

2Th_1:5  All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.

2Ti_1:8  So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.

2Ti_1:12  That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day.

2Ti_2:3  Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

2Ti_2:9  for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God’s word is not chained.

Heb_10:32  Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering.

Heb_13:3  Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

Jas_5:10  Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.

1Pe_2:19  For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God.

Rev_1:9  I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.

Mat 10:38  Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

STUDENT NOT GREATER THAN  TEACHER

Joh_15:20  Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.

Mat 10:16  “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.

Mat 10:17  Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues.

Mat 10:18  On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles.

Mat 10:19  But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say,

Mat 10:20  for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

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  You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Mat 10:23  When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

Mat 10:24  “The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master.

Mat 10:25  It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how much more the members of his household!

Mat 10:26  “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.

Mat 10:27  What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs.

Mat 10:28  Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Mat 10:29  Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.

Mat 10:30  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Mat 10:31  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Mat 10:32  “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.

Mat 10:33  But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.

Mat 10:34  “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

Mat 10:35  For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law–

Mat 10:36  a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’

Mat 10:37  “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:38  Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:39  Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

PERSECUTED

Mat_5:10  Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

2Ti_3:12  In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,

Mat_5:12  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Mat_10:23  When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

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.

Joh_15:20  Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.

Act_22:4  I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison,

1Co_4:12  We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;

1Co_15:9  For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

2Co_4:9  persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

Gal_1:13  For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it.

Gal_1:23  They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.”

Gal_4:29  At that time the son born according to the flesh persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now.

Gal_5:11  Brothers and sisters, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished.

Gal_6:12  Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.

1Th_3:4  In fact, when we were with you, we kept telling you that we would be persecuted. And it turned out that way, as you well know.

2Ti_3:12  In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,

Heb_11:37  They were put to death by stoning; they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated–

BEHEADED

Mar_6:27  So he immediately sent an executioner with orders to bring John’s head. The man went, beheaded John in the prison,

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 about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

FLOGGED, ARREST

Mat 10:17  Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues.

Mat 10:18  On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles.

Mat 10:19  But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say,

ENDURE

1Co_4:12  We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;

1Co_10:13  No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

2Co_1:8  We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself.

2Ti_2:10  Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

2Ti_2:12  if we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us;

2Ti_4:5  But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

Heb_12:7  Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?

1Pe_2:20  But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.

Rev_3:10  Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.

Rev 13:10  “If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be killed.” This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.

PERSEVERE

Heb_10:36  You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Heb_12:5  And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,

Heb_12:7  Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?

Heb_12:8  If you are not disciplined–and everyone undergoes discipline–then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.

Heb_12:11  No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

Heb_12:9  Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live!

Heb_12:10  They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness.

1Co_16:13  Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

Mar_13:7  When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.

PURIFY

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_12:10  Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.

Tit_2:14  who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

Rev_3:19  Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.

Luk_21:9  When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”

HATED

Mat_10:22  You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

STAND FIRM

Mat_10:22  You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.

KILLED

Mat 10:28  Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Mat 10:29  Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.

Mat 10:30  And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Mat 10:31  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Rev 13:10  “If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be killed.” This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.

DON’T EXPECT TO LIVE A PEACEFUL LIFE

Mat 10:32  “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.

Mat 10:33  But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.

Mat 10:34  “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.

Mat 10:35  For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law–

Mat 10:36  a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’

Mat 10:37  “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:38  Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:39  Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF JESUS

Mat_10:24  “The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master.

Luk_6:40  The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.

1Jn_4:17  This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.

1Jn_2:6  Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.

VICTORIOUS

Rev_2:26  To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations—

Rev_2:7  Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

Rev_2:11  Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who is victorious will not be hurt at all by the second death.

Rev_2:17  Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.

Rev_2:26  To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations– r

Rev_3:5  The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.

Rev_3:12  The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name.

Rev_3:21  To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.

Rev_15:2  And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God

Rev_21:7  Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.

END TIMES- THE DEVIL WILL BE RELEASED FORM CAPTIVITY SOON AND IT WILL BE HELL IN THIS WORLD

Rev 20:7  When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison

Rev 20:8  and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth–Gog and Magog–and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.

Rev 13:10  “If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be killed.” This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.

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 about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
