The future is purchased by the present.
– Samuel Johnson
Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
– the apostle Paul (Colossians 4:5)
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
– Jesus Christ our Lord (Matthew 6:19-21)
And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
– the angel, speaking of the end times (Revelation 22:10-11)
