Throughout the course of history great men and women of God have spoken of their loyalty to the Gospel presented in Holy Scripture. They have relayed the battle for the truth regarding the future. Below is a collection of a few such statements.

"Only a love for the truth and a willingness to do what the Word of God says will preserve us from the apostasy that Scripture tells us will overtake the world." - T.A. McMahon Refashioning God 08-20-2009

"St. John makes the denial of the incarnation of the Son of God the criterion of Antichrist, and consequently the belief in this truth the test of Christianity." - The Person of Christ: The Perfection of His Humanity Viewed as a Proof of His Divinity By Philip Schaff, p.5. www.forgottenbooks.org

"The apostolic church thought more about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ than about death and heaven. The early Christians were looking, not for a cleft in the ground called a grave but for a cleavage in the sky called Glory." - Alexander Maclaren, quoted in Draper's Book of Quotations for the Christian World (Wheaton: Tyndale House Publishers, 1992)

"More than a fourth of the Bible is predictive prophecy. Approximately one-third of it has yet to be fulfilled. Both the Old and New Testaments are full of promises about the return of Jesus Christ. Over 1,800 references appear in the Old Testament, and seventeen Old Testament books give prominence to this theme. Of the 260 chapters in the New Testament, there are more than 300 references to the Lord's return – one out of every thirty verses. Twenty-three of the twenty-seven New Testament books refer to this great event. Three of the four other books are single-chapter letters written to individuals concerning a particular subject, and the fourth is Galatians, which does imply Christ's coming again. For every prophecy on the first coming of Christ, there are eight on Christ's second coming." - George Sweeting Who Said That? Moody Press, 1995, p. 391.
