    “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain. For the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4

    “Look, I am coming soon! ***My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.*** I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. ***Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices lies.***

    “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” ***The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.*** … He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen.” ***Come, Lord Jesus.*** The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.” Revelation 22:12-17, 20-21

    Christ Himself will be dealing with these kinds of brutish evil people, and will give them their just punishment. “The Lord rebuke you!” Maranatha!

    “And shall not God avenge His own elect, which cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them? ***I tell you that He will avenge them speedily!*** Nevertheless when the Son of Man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?” Luke 18:7-8

    But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

    Salah, zakat, hajj and jihad will not save you when you stand before Jesus Christ the righteous judge.
