Jesus predicted this when He said,

“And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come. “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are My followers. And many will turn away from Me and betray and hate each other. And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew‬ ‭24:6-12‬ ‭NLT

‬‬“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John‬ ‭16:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew‬ ‭10:28‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for Me, you will find it.” Matthew‬ ‭10:39‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Yes,

“And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.” 1 John‬ ‭2:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬
