Beloved! now, are we, children of God; and, not yet, hath it been made manifest, what we shall be,We know that, if it should be made manifest, like unto him, shall we be, because we shall see him, just as he is.
For, every thing, there is a season,and a time for every pursuit, under the heavens:
Bring forth, therefore, fruit worthy of repentance;
Who will transfigure our humbled body, into conformity with his glorified body, according to the energy wherewith he is able even to subdue, unto himself, all things.
Because, I, Yahweh, have not changed, therefore, ye, the sons of Jacob, have not been utterly consumed.
Behold me! doing a new thing, Now, shall it spring forth, Will ye not take note thereof? Surely I will set In the desert, a way, In a desolate land, rivers:
3 Of this, first, taking notethat there will come, in the last of the days, with scoffing, scoffers, after their own covetings, going on,
4 and sayingWhere is the promise of his presence? For, since the fathers fell asleep, all things, thus remain, from the beginning of creation.
5 For this they, willfully, forgetthat there were, heavens, from of old, and, an earth, on account of water and by means of water, compacted, by Gods word,
6 By which means, the world that then was, with water being flooded, perished;
7 While, the heavens and the earth that now are, by the same word, have been stored with fire, being kept unto the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly men.
4 Generation, goeth and, generation, cometh, but, the earth, unto times age-abiding, remaineth.
5 And the sun, breaketh forth, and the sun, goeth in,yea, unto his own place, he panteth, from whence he brake forth.
6 Going unto the south, and circling unto the north,circling, circling continually, is, the wind, and, over its own circuits, returneth the wind.
7 All the streams, flow into the sea, yet, the sea, is not full,unto the place whither the streams flow, thither, do they again flow.
The heaven and the earth, shall pass away, but, my words, shall not pass away.
Jesus Christ, yesterday, and to-day, is the same,and unto the ages.

And, we all, with unveiled face, receiving and reflecting, the glory of
Nay! I tell you, but, except ye repent, ye, all, in like manner, shall perish.
On the contrary, now, no longer, are we gaining it. So that, if any one is in Christ, there is a new creation! the old things, have passed away,Lo! they have become new!
Every good giving, and every perfect gift, is, from above, coming down from the Father of lightswith whom is no alternation, nor shadow cast, by turning:
Lo! a sacred secret, unto you, do I declare:we shall not, all, sleep, but we shall, all, be changed,
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, during the last trumpet; for it shall sound, and, the dead, shall be raised, incorruptible, and, we, shall be changed.
That which hath been, is the same that shall be, and, that which hath been done, is the same that shall be done,and there is, nothing new, under the sun.
Is there a thing, of which it can be said, See here, it is, new? Already, hath it been, for ages, which was before us.
