Excerpts from the passage that I believe to be timely for Malaysia in this season…
v9 And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified, for these things must first take place, but the end will not be at once.
v14-15 Settle it therefore in your minds, not to meditate beforehand how to answer, for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict.
v18 Not a hair of your head will perish.
v19 By your endurance you will gain your lives.
v28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.
v34 But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap.
