9: (Lu 21:12).
10: (Mt 24:14).
11: The Holy Ghost will help you. But do not depend upon any

19: In those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the

20: The elect - The Christians: whom he hath chosen - That is, hath

of the Spirit and belief of the truth. He hath shortened - That is,
will surely shorten.
21: (Mt 24:23).

in their several stations. This seems chiefly to respect
ministers at the day of judgment: but it may be applied to
all men, and to the time of death.(Mt 25:14,Lu 19:12).
