[Luk 21] But before this they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name’s sake. This will be a time for you to bear testimony.
[Mal 3] Then those who revered the LORD spoke with one another; the LORD heeded and heard them, and a record was written before him of those who revered the LORD and thought on his name. “They shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, my special possession on the day when I act, and I will spare them as one spares their child who obeys them. Then once more you shall distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him. For behold, the day that comes shall burn them up, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings.” [Mal 4:1-2]
