Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
in hope of the Life of the Ages which God, who is never false to His word, promised before the commencement of the Ages.
in order that having been declared righteous through His grace we might become heirs to the Life of the Ages in fulfilment of our hopes.
and having a hope directed towards God, which my accusers themselves also entertain, that before long there will be a resurrection both of the righteous and the unrighteous.
and that this hope never disappoints, because God's love for us floods our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
It is *in hope* that we have been saved. But an object of hope is such no longer when it is present to view; for when a man has a thing before his eyes, how can he be said to hope for it?
May God, the giver of hope, fill you with continual joy and peace because you trust in Him--so that you may have abundant hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
on account of the hope treasured up for you in Heaven. Of this hope you have already heard in the Message of the truth of the Good News.
2 Thessalonians 2:16
And may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself--and God our Father who has loved us and has given us in His grace eternal consolation and a bright hope--
He added an oath, in order that, through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for Him to prove false, we may possess mighty encouragement--we who, for safety, have hastened to lay hold of the hope set before us.
1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in His great mercy has begotten us anew to an ever-living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1 John 3:3
And every man who has this hope fixed on Him, purifies himself so as to be as pure as He is.
For the Son of Man is soon to come in the glory of the Father with His angels, and then will He requite every man according to his actions.
"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then will He sit upon His glorious throne,
"I am He," replied Jesus. "But I tell you that, later on, you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Omnipotence, and coming on the clouds of the sky."
Every one, however, who has been ashamed of me and of my teachings in this faithless and sinful age, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in His Father's glory with the holy angels."
"I am," replied Jesus, "and you and others will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the divine Power, and coming amid the clouds of the sky."
1 Timothy 6:13
I charge you--as in the presence of God who gives life to all creatures, and of Christ Jesus who at the bar of Pontius Pilate made a noble profession of faith--
so the Christ also, having been once offered in sacrifice in order that He might bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, separated from sin, to those who are eagerly expecting Him, to make their salvation complete.
2 Corinthians 4:4
in whom the god of this present age has blinded their unbelieving minds so as to shut out the sunshine of the Good News of the glory of the Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Timothy 4:1
I solemnly implore you, in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is about to judge the living and the dead, and by His Appearing and His Kingship:
1 Peter 1:7
The sorrow comes in order that the testing of your faith--being more precious than that of gold, which perishes and yet is proved by fire--may be found to result in praise and glory and honour at the re-appearing of Jesus Christ.
1 John 3:2
Dear friends, we are now God's children, but what we are to be in the future has not yet been fully revealed. We know that if Christ reappears we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.
He is coming in the clouds, and every eye will see Him, and so will those who pierced Him; and all the nations of the earth will gaze on Him and mourn. Even so. Amen.
In piety and uprightness before Him all our days.
I and the Father are one."
This too is my own earnest endeavour--always to have a clear conscience in relation to God and man.
But these are not the lessons which you have learned from Christ;
But as for you, you must speak in a manner that befits wholesome teaching.
