Perseverance of the Saints: Matthew 24:13
“But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” Matthew‬ ‭24‬:‭13‬ ‭
As things go from bad to worse in the end times, we will see the concept of the perseverance of the saints shine. There will emerge glorious stories of genuine and godly believers remaining faithful to the end of their lives. They will not be bought off, threatened off or lured off by the world into sin and compromise. They will be like Stephen the first faithful martyr for Jesus.
“The end” seems to refer to “the end of their lives.” Whatever comes, they will remain true to their Master. They will not be saved by their works, but their works will testify that they are saved.
Though there are many false teachers and much forsaking of the truth in our day, there are also thousands of inspiring stories of the faithful and true forsaking all, including life itself for the love of Jesus. The last one hundreds years has added volumes to the story of the faithful and true.
