Matthew 10:21–23 (MEV): “The brother will deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child. And the children will rise up against their parents and cause them to be put to death. You will be hated by all men for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. But when they persecute you in this city, escape into another. For truly I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
Jesus told of trying times that will come. He spoke of persecution. He said when they persecute in one city, go to another.
It might be tempting to think that fleeing to another city is a temporary solution. It could be… But the promised end is not temporary.
That is hope for us in any time. For a believer, the future is secure in Jesus.
