"This is not a given - without a doing."

"BECAUSE you (BELIEVERS)... (your part) have obeyed My command.... to continue and endure even in the face of difficulty,

I will protect you from.....Great Tribulation that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world.

(Your part) Hold on to what you have, so that... no one will take away your crown.   (Revelation 3:10,11)
