Jesus said, take heed that no man deceive you. Many false prophets shall rise, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these things are the beginning of sorrows, but the end is not yet. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and persecuted for my name's sake.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, stand in the holy place, making war with the saints through miracles and lying wonders Blaspheming God, know that the end is near, even at the door. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? We casted out devils and we did in thy name – and we did many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:(no relationship) depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
But watch thou in all things, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry and endure afflictions Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in the kingdom of heaven. When ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. But the end it not yet.

And after these things I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: Let us be glad and rejoice, give honour to him: for the marriage supper of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
