And now, little children, abide in Him; that, if He shall be manifested, we may have confidence, and not be put away from Him with shame at His coming.
Beloved, now are we children of God, and never yet was it manifested what we shall be. We know that, if He shall be manifested, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.
In this has love been made perfect with us, that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, even so are we in this world.
When Christ, our Life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also with Him be manifested in glory.
My little children, these things I write to you, that ye may not sin. And, if any one sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ, the Righteous.
For whosoever is ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man also will be ashamed of him, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."
For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of glorying? Are not even ye, in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming?
as it has been written, "Behold, I lay in Zion a Stone of stumbling, and a Rock of offense; and he that believes on Him shall not be put to shame."
so that ye fall short in no gift, waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ;
but each in his own rank; Christ, the First-fruit; then those who are Christ's at His coming.
to the end that He may establish your hearts unblamable in holiness before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints.
And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved entire, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
that you keep the commandment, unsullied, irreproachable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,
henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, will recompense to me in that day, and not only to me, but also to all those who have loved His appearing.
looking for the blissful hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;
so also Christ, having once for all been offered to bear the sins of many, will, to those who are eagerly waiting for Him; appear a second time apart from sin, unto salvation.
that the proving of your faith??eing much more precious than gold that perishes, but is proved through fire??ay be found unto praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? for, from the day the fathers fell asleep, all things remain as they were from the beginning of the creation."
And this is the confidence which we have toward Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us;
