Those days will be shortened.The return of Christ will bring deliverance for His people, and judgment to His enemies (Matt. 3:12; 13:30; 25:31-33; Rev. 19:11-21).
For the elect’s sake.The term
elect refers to those who believe in Jesus Christ,
the Elect One (Isa. 42:1). Just as we share His Sonship, so also, we share His election (Eph. 1:4-6).
