Sinais do Fim dos Tempos
17 'It will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.
18 Yes, upon the slave men and slave girls that are mine I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.
19 I will give portents in heaven above and signs on the earth beneath, blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the day of the Lord comes \'97 that great and glorious day.
21 And every one who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'
I am telling you a mystery. We shall not all fall asleep, but we shall all be transformed,
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet-call. For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be transformed.
And this good news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the inhabited world for a testimony to all the Gentiles. And then will come the end.
1 I WOULD have you know this, that in the last days trying times will come;
2 for people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, haughty, abusive, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, profane,
3 without family affection, relentless, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,
4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
5 They will have a form of religion, but will cast off its power. Avoid such people.
34 Take care that your hearts are not dull through overeating and drinking and the cares of life, so that that day may come on you unexpectedly like a trap.
35 For it will come on all who dwell on the face of all the earth.
36 Be watchful at every season in prayer that you may be able to escape all these things that will happen, and to stand before the Son of Man."
29 "Immediately after the distress of those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give her light, and the stars will fall from heaven and the powers of heaven will be shaken.
30 And then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. Then will all the tribes of the earth beat their breasts for grief, and they will see the Son of Man as he comes on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet-blast, and they will gather his chosen from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
15 This we tell you by the word of the Lord: We, the living, who have been left until the coming of the Lord, will not have the start of those who have fallen asleep.
16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel and with God's trumpet-call, and first the dead in Christ will rise.
17 Then we, the living, who are left, will be caught up along with them into the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall forever be with the Lord.
18 So encourage one another with these words.
"But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, not even the Son, but the Father only.
42 Watch, therefore, for you do not know what day your Master is coming.
43 But this you do know, that if the householder had known in which watch the thief was coming he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into.
44 Therefore be you also ready, for in an hour that you do not think the Son of Man is coming.
8 Do not forget this one thing, beloved, that one day with the Lord is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like one day.
9 The Lord is not slow about what he has promised, as some think of slowness, but is long-suffering toward us, wishing not to have any perish but to have all come to a change of heart.
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. On that day the heavens will pass away with a loud noise and the burning elements will be dissolved and the earth and the things in it will not be found.
11 Since all of these things are to be dissolved, what sort of persons ought you to be in holy lives and piety,
12 you who are looking for and hastening toward the coming of the day of God, when the blazing heavens will be dissolved and the burning elements melted?
13 But according to his promise we are expecting new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness will dwell.
1 THEN I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away and the sea was no more.
2 I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "The Tent of God is with men. He will tent with them and they will be his people and he will be their God.
4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death shall be no more; neither shall there any longer be sorrow or wailing or painful toil; for the first things have passed away."
teaching them to keep all the commands that I have given you. And, behold, I am with you all the days to the end of the world."
