A Volta de Jesus
1 But about the times and the seasons, brothers, ye have no need to be written to you.
2 For ye yourselves know accurately that the day of Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
3 For when they say, Peace and safety, then sudden destruction approaches them, as the woman having birth pangs in her womb, and they will, no, not escape.
36 But about that day and hour no man knows, not even the agents of the heavens, except my Father only.
37 And as the days of Noah, so also will be the coming of the Son of man.
38 For as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until that day Noah entered into the ark.
39 And they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away. So also will be the coming of the Son of man.
9 And having said these things, as they were watching, he was taken up, and a cloud received him from their eyes.
10 And while they were gazing at his going into the sky, behold, two men had also stood by them in white apparel,
11 who also said, Men, Galileans, why stand ye gazing into the sky? This Jesus who was taken up from you into the sky will so come, in that same way as ye saw him going into the sky.
11 Therefore, all these things being disintegrated, what kind ought ye to be in holy actions and pieties,
12 anticipating and hastening the coming of the day of God, by which the heavens, being made fiery hot, will be disintegrated, and the elements dissolve, being intensely hot?
13 But we anticipate a new heavens and a new earth according to his promise, in which righteousness dwells.
He who testifies these things says, Yea, I come quickly. Truly. Yea, come, Lord Jesus!
8 But beloved, this one thing you should not ignore, that one day with Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack about his promise, as some regard slackness, but is patient toward us, not wanting any to perish, but all to go forward to repentance.
10 But the day of Lord will come as a thief in the night, during which the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the elements, being intensely hot, will be disintegrated, and the earth and the works in it will be destroyed by fire.
Because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with a voice of the arch-agent, and with a trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first,
then we who are alive, who remain, will be caught up simultaneously with them in clouds to the Lord's gathering in the air. And so we will always be with Lord.
But about that day or that hour no man knows, not even the agents in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father.
For whoever may be ashamed of me and of my words, the Son of man will be ashamed of this man when he comes in his glory, and of the Father, and of the holy agents.
1 Now we ask you, brothers, on behalf of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to him,
2 for ye not to be quickly shaken from your mind, nor to be alarmed, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by a letter as by us, as that the day of the Christ has come.
3 Let not any man deceive you in any way, because if not, the defection may come first, and he may be revealed--the man of sin, the son of destruction,
4 who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or an object of worship, so as for him to sit in the temple of God, as God, displaying himself that he is God.
24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light,
25 and the stars of the sky will be falling, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken.
26 And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with much power and glory.
27 And then he will send forth his heavenly agents, and will gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the outermost part of the earth as far as the outermost part of heaven.
In my Father's house are many dwellings, and if not, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I come again, and will take you along to myself, so that where I am, ye may be also.
Behold, I come quickly, and my reward is with me to render to each man as his work will be.
31 But when the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the holy agents with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory.
32 And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate them from each other, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
33 And he will truly place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left.
42 Watch therefore, because ye know not at what hour your Lord comes.
43 But know this, that if the house-ruler had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.
44 Because of this ye also be ready, because in that hour ye think not the Son of man comes.
And inasmuch as it is reserved to men once to die, and after this, judgment,
so also the Christ, having been offered once in order to take up the sins of many, will appear a second time, independent of sin, to those waiting for him for salvation.
11 And I saw the heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and he who sits upon it called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.
12 And his eyes are a flame of fire, and upon his head are many diadems having names written, and a name written that none knows except he himself,
13 and clothed in a garment dipped in blood. And his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, pure white.
15 And a sharp two-edged sword comes out of his mouth, so that he would smite the nations by it. And he will tend them with a rod of iron. And he treads the winepress of the wine of the wrath of the anger of the Almighty God.
16 And he has on his garment and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
