“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I AM come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household,” Matthew 10:34-36.
“And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south,” Zechariah 14:4.
“For on that day I will come through the clouds.
I will come and my feet will rest upon the Mount of Olives. I will come, not as a man of peace but as a king who will separate the wheat from the straw.
I have come to separate the goats from the sheep. I have come with a sword and to create division, for whoever is against Me will be separated on that day.
On that day you will weep and yet many others will rejoice. You have looked for Me to come and yet even though the time is rapidly approaching, that time will only come when the man of perdition has wrought his destructive reign.
And yet those who trust in Me will have found that I have kept them safely. But indeed, many trials are ahead for you.
These trials will test you beyond what you may think that you could endure. You will be stretched, and you will be given places to hide amid the storms.”
