Straight Talk 4 Overcoming VS Escaping Teaching Scriptures

Galatians 5:16-17

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
17 For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in
opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.

1 John 2:18-20

18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists
have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour.
19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have
remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not
grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have
fallen asleep in Jesus.
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of
the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and
with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the
Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5: 1 Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you.
2 For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.
3 While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor
pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief;
5 for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness;
6 so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.

Matthew 24:1-3

1 Jesus came out from the temple and was going away when His disciples came up to point out the
temple buildings to Him.
2 And He said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be
left upon another, which will not be torn down.”
3 As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when
will these things happen, and what {will be} the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

Matthew 24:34 “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

Matthew 24:37-41

37 “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.
38 “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in
marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,
39 and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the
Son of Man be.
40 “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.
41 “Two women {will be} grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.
