Enduring to the end



ROMANS 11:25 Because I don’t want you to remain ignorant of this mysterious enigma, in case you should be just fooling yourselves, that Israel has become blinded in their minds for only a limited time, until the full number of the rest of mankind who will be made right with God through Jesus is reached, and only God knows that number. 26 And then all of Israel will be made right with God; as it has been written, ‘There will come forth a Saviour from Zion who will turn away all ungodliness from Israel’.

Daniel 12:1…there will be a time of anguish for the Jews greater than any previous suffering in Jewish history. And yet every one of your people whose names are written in the Book will endure it and be delivered…4."But Daniel, keep this prophecy a secret; seal it up so that it will not be understood until the end times, when travel and education shall be vastly increased!"
5. Then I, Daniel, looked and saw two men on each bank of a river. 6. And one of them asked the man in linen robes who was standing now above the river, "How long will it be until all these terrors end?"
7. He replied, with both hands lifted to heaven, taking oath by him who lives forever and ever, that they will not end until three and a half years after the power of God's people has been put down.
8. I heard what he said, but I didn't understand what he meant. So I said, "Sir, how will all this finally end?"
But he said, "Go now, Daniel, for what I have said is not to be understood until the time of the end. Many shall be purified by great trials and persecutions. But the wicked shall continue in their wickedness, and none of them will understand. Only those who are willing to learn will know what it means.

Romans 8:26. The Spirit joins himself to us in our human weakness, because we do not always know what we should be asking God for, but the Spirit feels our agony and pleads on our behalf with silent cries.
27. And He who searches the hearts shares the same mind as the Spirit, because He pleads for those who have entrusted their lives to Him, for the Father to answer their cry in His own perfect way.
28. And so we can be assured that everything that happens in our lives will be divinely contrived to bring about His greatest benefit for us, who love God, and who accept the invitation to be part of his will for our life. 29. For he knew beforehand and predetermined all of us who are now being conformed to the image of his Son, that his Son would be the family firstborn among a multitude of brothers and sisters.
31. So what will we say about all this? If God wants to do all of this for us, who can stop him?
34. Who can dare judge us? It is Christ that died, and what’s more, has risen again, and who is even at the right hand of the Father, and who prays for His best to happen to us.
35. So what can separate us from this love of Christ? Could it be suffering or misfortune, or persecution, or no food, no clothing, danger, or violence?
36. The Scriptures say “It is for your sake that we suffer death blows all day long. We are counted as sheep for the slaughter”.37. No, in all these things we end up winning because of Him who loved us.38. And I am convinced that not even death, or life, or heavenly angels, or angels of darkness, or demons, or what is happening now, or what might happen in the future,
39 Or things above, or things below, or any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
