 22 And you shall be hated by all men for my name's sake; but he who endures to the end will be saved.

 21 Yet has he no root in himself, but endures only for awhile; for when tribulation or persecution rises because of the word, he is eventually offended. [Tribulation, suffering, and persecution occur because a person endures in obeying "the word," which is the spoken words they hear, (spoken by the Lord to them), as they wait, watch, and listen. Every believer who takes up the inward cross of self-denial and endures for awhile will experience trials and tribulations with suffering and persecution; some will be offended, causing them to give up their enduring — they cease their first priority of obedient following and seeking of God to fall back into the ways of the world.]

2 Thessalonians 1:4-5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 4 So that we ourselves speak proudly of you to the churches of God because of your steadfast endurance and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure; [Love bears all things, ...endures all things. 1 Cor 13:7]

 5 Which is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you suffer. [To enter the kingdom, every man must go through seven troubles, or seven trials — which is great tribulation. The seventh is the trial of perfection, the final trial before the revealing of Jesus Christ and his resurrection with you. The seven troubles correspond to the seven vials in the book of Revelation.]

Hebrews 6:15

 15 And so, after Abraham had patiently endured [in waiting on God and obeying His voice], he obtained the promise.4 [Abraham, the father of the Christian faith, did not receive instant salvation; and neither does anyone without patient endurance on the inward cross of self-denialendurance to the death of your sinful nature, carnal mind, passions, pleasures, lusts, pride, and satanic spirit that all uncrucified men have. “Lo! This is our God, we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” Isa 25:9]

Hebrews 10:36,39,12:7

 36 For you need endurance in order to do God’s will, so that after you may receive the promise . [In order to receive the promised salvation you must endure in waiting, tribulations, suffering, and obedience to crucify your sinful nature. Then you are righteous, permanently freed from sin, translated into His kingdom, and in union with Christ and God.]

 39 But we are not of those who draw back [don't endure] to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul. [A believer can draw back into perdition before his soul has been saved in ceasing to wait, listen, and obey; or by failing to stay on the inward cross of self-denial until the death of his selfish nature, which requires patience and great endurance. The parable of the sower explains why people draw back failing to produce the fruit of the Spirit.]

 7 Endure your trials; God deals with you as with sons, for what son is there whom the father does not discipline? [We are fallen men, slaves to sin, who must must be cleansed of sin through the inward cross of self-denial, which includes trials with suffering to be rid of sin. Your faith is tested through trials: is it strong enough to last through trials with suffering, or do you become offended and cease seeking God as your first priority?]

Luke 21:19

 19 By your steadfast endurance do you possess your soul.2 [For salvation, (to save your soul), you must patiently endure in waiting, tribulations, suffering, and obedience in order to mortify and crucify your sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial. From the Word of the Lord within: "To endure on the cross is dying. Salvation comes to those who heed and obey. Salvation comes to those who wait. Be like the early Church, who for inexpressible joy endured to the end."]

James 1:2,12

 2 My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trials; [It is through many trials and tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God. Acts 14:22. Many are the trials of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. Psa 34:19. He shall deliver you in six troubles; yes, in seven no evil shall touch you. Job 5:19 ]

 12 Blessed is the man who endures trials because when he is proven genuine, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love him. [Your faith is tested through trials; is it strong enough to last through suffering, or do you become offended and cease seeking God as your first priority?]

James 1:3-4

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works steadfast endurance. [When God delivers you from a trial, it strengthens your steadfast endurance, your faith, and hope of your coming eternal salvation.]

 4 But let steadfast endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.1 [Note! If you lack nothing, then you have everything possible, (including fellowship with Christ and the Father, raised to heaven, sitting with Christ in the kingdom, in union with Christ and God, free from even the desire to sin, pure, holy, permanently perfected, protected from ever sinning again — all while still alive on earth), as Paul wrote the perfect man does: Until we all come to the unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; Eph 4:13. If you are a perfect man and possess the fullness of Christ, you have everything possible.]
