A Volta de Jesus
But, concerning the times and the seasons, brethren,ye have, no need, that, unto you, anything be written;
For, ye yourselves, perfectly well knowthat, the day of the Lord, as a thief in the night, so, cometh;
As soon as they begin to sayPeace! and safety! then, suddenly, upon them, cometh destruction,just as the birth-throe unto her that is with child,and in nowise shall they escape.
36 But, concerning that day and hour, no one, knoweth, neither the messengers of the heavens, nor the Son,save the Father only.
37 For, just as the days of Noah, so, will be the presence of the Son of Man;
38 For, as they were in those days that were before the flood, feeding and drinking, marrying and being given in marriage,until the day Noah entered into the ark;
39 And they observed not, until the flood came and took away all together, so, will be, the presence of the Son of Man.
And having said these things, as they were beholding, he was lifted up, and a cloud caught him away from their eyes.
And, while they were looking steadfastly into heaven as he was going his way, then lo! two men had taken their stand beside them, in white garments,
Who also saidMen of Galilee! why stand ye looking into heaven? This Jesus who hath been taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, in like manner as ye yourselves have gazed upon him going into heaven.
Seeing that all these things are thus to be dissolved, what manner of persons, ought ye all the while to be, in holy ways of behaviour and acts of godliness,
Expecting and hastening the presence of the day of God, by reason of which, heavens, being on fire, will be dissolved, and, elements, becoming intensely hot, are to be melted;
But, new heavens, and a new earth, according to his promise, are we expecting, wherein, righteousness, is to dwell.
He that beareth witness of these things, saithYea! I come, speedily. Amen! come, Lord Jesus!
But, this one thing, forget not, beloved,that, one day, with the Lord, is as a thousand years, and, a thousand years, as one day.
The Lord is, not slack, concerning his promise, as some count, slackness; but is long-suffering with regard to you, not being minded that any should perish, but that, all, unto repentance, should come.
Howbeit the day of the Lord will be here, as a thief,in which, the heavens, with a rushing noise, will pass away, while, elements, becoming intensely hot, will be dissolved, and, earth, and the works therein, will be discovered.
Because, the Lord himself, with a word of command, with a chief-messengers voice, and with a trumpet of God, shall descend from heaven,and, the dead in Christ, shall rise, first,
After that, we, the living who are left, together with them, shall be caught away, in clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:and, thus, evermore, with the Lord, shall we be!
But, concerning that day or hour, no one, knoweth, neither the messengers in heaven, nor the Son,save the Father.
For, whosoever shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, of him, the Son of Man, will be ashamed, whensoever he shall come in his glory, and that of the Father, and of the holy messengers.
1 But we request you, brethren,in behalf of the Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not quickly tossed from your mind, nor be put in alarmeither by spirit, or by discourse, or by letter as by us, as that the day of the Lord, hath set in:
3 That no one may cheat, you, in any one respect. Because except the revolt come first, and there he revealed the man of lawlessness, the son of destruction,
4 The one who opposeth and exalteth himself on high against every one called God, or an object of worship; so that he, within the sanctuary of God, shall take his seat, showeth himself forth, that he is, God:
24 But, in those days, after that tribulation, the sun, shall be darkened, and, the moon, will not give her brightness,
25 And, the stars, will, out of the heavens, be falling,and, the powers which are in the heavens, will be shaken;
26 And, then, will they see the Son of Mancoming in clouds, with great power and glory.
27 And, then, will he send forth the messengers, and they will gather together his chosenout of the four winds, from utmost bound of earth, unto utmost bound of heaven.
In the house of my Father, are, many dwellings; or else I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you.
And, if I go, and prepare a place for you, again, am I coming, and will take you home untomyself, that, where, I, am, ye also, may be.
Lo! I come speedily, and my reward is with me, to render unto each one as, his, work is.
But, whensoever the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the messengers with him, then will he sit on his throne of glory;
And there will be gathered before him, all the nations, and he will separate them one from another, just as, the shepherd! separateth the sheep from the goats,
And he will set, the sheep, indeed, on his right hand, but, the goats, on the left.
Be watching, therefore, for ye know not, on what manner of day, your Lord is coming.
But there is, one thing, ye knowThat, if the householder, had known, in what watch, the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert, and not have suffered his house to be dug through.
Wherefore, ye also, be getting ready, because, in what hour ye are, not thinking, The Son of Man doth come.
And, inasmuch as it is in store for menonce for all to die, but after this, judgment,
Thus, the Christ also, once for all having been offered, for the bearing of the sins, of many, a second time, apart from sin, will appear, to them who for him are ardently waitingunto salvation.
11 And I saw heaven, set open, and lo! a white horse, and, he that was sitting thereon, called Faithful, and True; and, in righteousness, doth he judge and make war;
12 and, his eyes, are a flame of fire, and, upon his head, are many diadems, having, a name, written, which, no one, knoweth, but himself,
13 and arrayed with a mantle sprinkled with blood, and his name hath been calledThe Word of God.
14 And, the armies which were in heaven, were following him, upon white horses, clothed with fine linen, white, pure;
15 and, out of his mouth, is going forth a sharp sword, that, therewith, he may smite the nations,and, he, shall shepherd them with a sceptre of iron, and, he, treadeth the wine-press of the wrath of the anger of God the Almighty.
16 And he hath, upon his mantle and upon his thigh, a name, writtenKing of kings, and Lord of lords.
