giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they
knew nothng about what would happen until the flood came and took
them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of

What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his
soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? If anyone is

glory with holy angels.
At that time men will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great
power and glory. And he will send his angels and gather his elect
from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the
Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the
house will come back - whether in the evening, or at midnight, or
when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not
let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone:

the Blessed One?" "I am," said Jesus. "And you will see the Son of
Man sitting at the right hand of the Might One and coming on the
clouds of heaven."

of Man is revealed.

of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is
coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At
that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power
and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up
and lift your heads, becasue your redemption is drawing near."

also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so,

you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and
take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know
the way to the place where I am going."
"Men of Galilee," they said. "why do you stand here looking into the
sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will

Thessalonians 4:15-5:4 According to the Lord's own word, we
tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming
of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen
asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a
loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet
call of god, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we
who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with
them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be
with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these
words. Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write
to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come
like a thief in the night. While people are saying, "Peace and

bring about in his own time - God the blessed and only Ruler, the
King of Kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives
in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be
honor and might forever. Amen
4:1-2 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will

patience and careful instruction.

redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people

against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is
standing at the door!

in it will be laid bare.
