A Volta de Jesus
1 But of the times and the seasons, my brethren, you need not that I write to you;
2 for you truly know that the day of our Lord as a thief in the night so cometh.
3 While they shall be saying, Peace and tranquillity, then unawares will destruction arise against them, as distress upon the child-bearer, and they shall not escape.
36 BUT concerning that day and concerning that hour, no man knoweth; neither the angels of heaven, but the Father only.
37 But as the days of Nûch, so shall be the coming of the Son of man.
38 For as before the deluge they were eating and drinking, taking wives and giving to husbands, until the day that Nûch went into the ark;
39 and knew not till the deluge came, and carried them all away; so shalt be the advent of the Son of man.
9 And as these he said, while they beheld him, he was taken up, and the cloud received him, and he was covered from their eyes.
10 And while they looked to the heavens as he went, two men were found standing with them in white vestments;
11 and they said to them, Men, Galiloyee, why stand you looking to the heavens 3? this Jeshu who is taken up from you into the heavens will so come as you have seen him ascend into the heavens.
11 As, therefore, all these are to be dissolved, how behoveth it you to be holy in your conversation, and in the fear of Aloha;
12 expecting and desiring the coming of the day of Aloha; that (day) in which the heavens, tried with fire, shall be dissolved, and the elements burning shall melt?
13 But new heavens and earth, according to his promise, we expect; those wherein righteousness dwelleth.
He who testifieth these saith, Yes: I come quickly. Amen. Come, Lord Jeshu.
8 But this one (truth) be not ignorant of, my beloved, That one day with the Lord (is) as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 Not dilatory is the Lord in his promises, as some consider delay; but is patient on your account, not willing that any man should perish, but (that) every man to repentance should come.
10 But the day of the Lord cometh as a thief: that (day) in which the heavens suddenly shall pass away, but the elements burning be dissolved, and the earth and the works that are in it be found not.
For our Lord himself with the mandate, and with the voice of the chief of angels, and with the trumpet of Aloha, will come down from heaven, and the dead who are in the Meshiha will arise first;
and then we who remaining alive, shall be rapt with them together in clouds, to the meeting of our Lord in the expanse; and so always with our Lord shall we be.
But of that day and of that hour man knoweth not, nor the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
For whoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, the Son of man will be ashamed of him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
1 But we beseech of you, my brethren, as it regards the coming of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha, and our assemblage with him,
2 that you be not soon moved in your minds, nor perturbed, nor by word, nor by spirit, nor by letter, which (may be) as (if it were) from us, that, Behold, the day of our Lord cometh!
3 Let no one deceive you by any one of the methods, because unless there shall come first the rebellion, and there be revealed the man of sin, the son of perdition;
4 He who is the adversary, and is exalted over all who is called God and Venerable; so that also in the temple of Aloha as Aloha he will sit, and will make manifest of himself as that he is Aloha.
24 But in those days after that affliction the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give forth her light,
25 and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be moved.
26 And then will they see the Son of Man coming in the cloud with great power and with glory.
27 And then will he send his angels, and will assemble his chosen ones from the four winds, from the extremity of the earth to the extremity of the heavens.
Many are the mansions of my Father's house: and if not, I would have told you; for I go to prepare for you a place.
And if I go to prepare for you a place, I will come again and take you with me, that where I am you also may be.
Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to every one according as is his work.
31 WHEN the Son of man cometh in his glory, and all his holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory.
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats.
33 And he shall cause the sheep to stand upon his right hand, and the goats on his left.
42 Be wakeful therefore, because ye know not in what hour cometh your Lord.
43 But this know; that if the master of the house knew in what watch the thief would come, he would have been watching, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
44 Wherefore be ye also prepared, because in the hour that ye expect not shall come the Son of man.
And as it is ordained to the sons of men, that they must once die, and after their death the judgment;
so also the Meshiha was once offered, and in his (own) person sacrificed (for) the sins of many; but the second time without sins he appeareth for the salvation of them who expect him.
11 And I saw heaven opened. And behold a white horse, and he who sat upon him was called the Faithful and the True; and in righteousness he judgeth and maketh war.
12 But his eyes were as the flame of fire, and upon his head were many diadems, having names written; and the name which was written of him no man knoweth but himself.
13 And he was arrayed in a vestment sprinkled with blood, and his name was called The Word of Aloha.
14 And the armies of heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in garments of fine linen, pure (and) white.
15 And from his mouth went forth a sharp sword of two edges, that therewith he might smite the nations. And he will rule the nations with a rod of iron, and he will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Aloha the Omnipotent.
16 And he had upon his vestment and upon his thigh the name written, King of kings, and Lord of lords.
