How does Jesus count someone worthy?

So how is one counted worthy?

"For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.
Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass,
and to stand before the Son of Man."

Luke 21:35,36

Who would count you worthy or not?

Only Jesus, right?

So how would He count you or anyone worthy?

RE:  How does Jesus count someone worthy?
King James Bible...Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Jesus Christ is the only way to Salvation.
1 Corinthians 1611 AV KJ Bible
Chapter 15
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Re: What's going to happen to all of us?
There are bibles everywhere for free for a reason. Eternal life is a reality. You choose where you end up. God keeps trying to get everyone’s attention. It’s time to get serious and figure out where you want to spend forever. 43 Green User ID 71088931 11/14/2021 11:54 PM

RE:  Search for Minnesota mother accused of abducting daughter to prevent vaccination.
Sounds like a hero mom, that dad with the stroke should be locked up for trying to push that shot on his daughter. In a few years we will all be vindicated and the vax pushers will be remembered the same way we now view nazis. They will never brush the stain of their sin off of them it will be a mark that will forever follow them until death Anonymous Coward User ID 78878344 10/13/2022 01:35 PM

End Blasphemy End SatanismStop Satanism • Blaspheme Never Again !

The First Amendment protects against the infringement of religion and in so doing, it protects religion itself from blasphemers, heretics, iconoclasts, and apostates.

Satanism is NOT a legitimate religion and does not deserve any protections under the First Amendment.

Satanism exists solely as a repudiation of another religion, Christianity. Satan is NOT a god. He's a flunky. Any worship of Satan is merely a rude gesture AGAINST the God of Christianity. The entire act of worship in Satanism IS flinging an insult at the God of Christianity. As such, it is not the practice of a religion, but rather the practice of an insult.

Neurolinguistic Programming

You may already know that NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The name is derived from three components that most affect our human experience: our neurology, our language, and our programming, or the way in which we have learned to model the world around us. The development of NLP began in the 1970s in California, by Richard Bandler and John Grinder as an innovative approach to psychotherapy, communication, and personal development.

NLP studies the methods, validity and scope involved in what it means to be human on many different levels and dimensions. It focuses on fostering competence and flexibility of behavior, and involves analytical and strategic thought to understand what mental processes are behind human behavior.

        Board game set in an alternate-history in 1920s 

        A time of farming and war, broken hearts and rusted gears, innovation and valor 

            It is a time of unrest in 1920s Europa. The ashes from the first great war still darken the snow. The capitalistic city-state known simply as 'The Factory,' which fueled the war with heavily armored mechs, has closed its doors, drawing the attention of several nearby countries.   

            Other than each player’s individual hidden objective cards, the only elements of luck are encounter cards that players will draw as they interact with the citizens of newly explored lands and combat cards that give you a temporary boost in combat. Combat is also driven by choices, not luck or randomness.
