Matthew Chapter 24
24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of
heaven, but my Father only.
24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son
of man be.
24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe
entered into the ark,
24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so
shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the
24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken,
and the other left.
24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what
watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have
suffered his house to be broken up.
24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not
the Son of man cometh.
From 1st John Chapter 3
3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what
we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like
him; for we shall see him as he is.
3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as
he is pure.
From 1st Thessalonians Chapter 4
4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them
which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also
which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are
alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them
which are asleep.
4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with
the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in
Christ shall rise first:
4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with
them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be
with the Lord.
4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
From Acts Chapter 1
1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,
behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into
heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall
so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
From Matthew Chapter 24
24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
From 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 2
2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by
spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ
is at hand.
2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed,
the son of perdition;
2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or
that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
shewing himself that he is God.
2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these
2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his
2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now
letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume
with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of
2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power
and signs and lying wonders,
2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;
because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be
2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they
should believe a lie:
2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had
pleasure in unrighteousness.
2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren
beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to
salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
2:14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the
glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye
have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which
hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope
2:17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
