Section 3G of Preface: Warning of False Teachers, False Prophets and False Spirits

Prior to the writing of the Book of Revelation, the Lord told His followers of His love for them, what would happen to the souls of the dead, and gave answers to the question as to when He would come and what would happen at the time of His second-coming.

Jesus told His followers how to treat people who persecuted them, and what God would do to those persecutors at the day of judgment.

In addition to all of these, Jesus also prepared His followers for a different kind of trouble...false teachings, false teachers and prophets.
