Luke 21:9 NIV
When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”
Mark 13:7-8 NIV
When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.
