As if you didn't already know life requires a level of endurance the likes of which no one ever prepared us for, read the entire passage from Luke, 21:5-19. It's a dire prophecy. Imagine what life would be like for you under such circumstances. Deeply consider this: then, as now, God will be with you - giving you words to say and defending you against persecution, betrayal, and death. Just "beware that you are not led astray."
