And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
Beloved, now we are the sons of God, and it is not yet made manifest what we shall be; but we know that if he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
In this the charity with us is made perfect, that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, that as he is, so are we in this world.
When Christ, who is our life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also be manifested with him in glory.
My little children, I write these things unto you, that ye sin not; and if anyone has sinned, we have an Advocate before the Father, Jesus, the righteous Christ;
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
For what is our hope or joy or crown of rejoicing? Is it not you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
And when the great Prince of the pastors shall appear, ye shall receive the incorruptible crown of glory.
And it shall be said in that day, Behold, this is our God, whom we have waited for, and he has saved us: this is the LORD, whom we have waited for, we will be glad and rejoice in his saving health.
Israel is saved in the LORD, eternal salvation; ye shall never be ashamed nor confounded through all ages.
But who may abide the time of his coming? and who shall stand when he appears? for he shall be like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap:
Behold, I send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD:

But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward, those that are Christ's at his coming.
that your hearts may be confirmed in holiness, irreprehensible before God, even our Father, for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
And the very God of peace sanctify you completely, that your spirit, soul, and body be preserved whole without reprehension for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold (which perishes, nevertheless it is tried with fire), might be found unto praise and glory and honour when Jesus, the Christ, is made manifest;
and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the day in which the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
