Thematic Bible







And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men, saying, Behold, Lord came with his holy myriads,

But we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, about those who are asleep, so that ye may not grieve, as also the others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and arose, so also those who became asleep through Jesus, God will bring with him. For this we say to you in the word of Lord, that we who are alive, who remain for the coming of the Lord, will no, not precede those who became asleep. read more.
Because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with a voice of the arch-agent, and with a trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive, who remain, will be caught up simultaneously with them in clouds to the Lord's gathering in the air. And so we will always be with Lord. Therefore encourage each other with these words.

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east. And the mount of Olives shall be split in the midst of it toward the east and toward the west, a very great valley. And half of t And ye shall flee by the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azel. Yea, ye shall flee, just as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. And LORD my God shall come, a

But straightaway after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light. And the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of man will appear in the sky. And then all the tribes of the earth will beat the breast, and they will see the Son of man coming in the clouds of the sky with power and much glory. And he will send forth his agents with a great trumpet sound, and they will gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the boundaries of the heavens--as far as their boundaries.

But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars of the sky will be falling, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with much power and glory. read more.
And then he will send forth his heavenly agents, and will gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the outermost part of the earth as far as the outermost part of heaven.

And I saw the heaven opened, and behold a white horse, and he who sits upon it called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. And his eyes are a flame of fire, and upon his head are many diadems having names written, and a name written that none knows except he himself, and clothed in a garment dipped in blood. And his name is called The Word of God. read more.
And the armies in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, pure white.

The Mighty One, God, LORD, has spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun to the going down thereof. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shone forth. Our God comes, and does not keep silence. A fire devours before him, and it is very tempestuous round about him. read more.
He calls to the heavens above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people. Gather my sanctified together to me, those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly things in Christ. Just as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, for us to be holy and unblemished before him in love. Who predestined us for sonship through Jesus Christ for himself, according to the desire of his will, read more.
for appreciation of the glory of his grace, by which he blessed us in him who is beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of transgressions, according to the wealth of his grace, which he abounded for us in all wisdom and intelligence. Having made known to us the mystery of his will according to his desire, which he purposed within himself for an administration of the fullness of the times. To gather together all things in the Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth, in him in whom also we obtained an inheritance. Having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the deliberation of his will.

But about the times and the seasons, brothers, ye have no need to be written to you. For ye yourselves know accurately that the day of Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, Peace and safety, then sudden destruction approaches them, as the woman having birth pangs in her womb, and they will, no, not escape. read more.
But ye, brothers, are not in darkness, so that the day would seize you as a thief. Ye are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. So then let us not sleep, as also the others, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who are intoxicated get drunk at night. But we, being of the day, should be sober, putting on a breastplate of faith and love, and a helmet, the hope of salvation. Because God appointed us not for wrath, but for an acquired possession of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us. So that, whether we are awake or sleep, we should live together with him. Therefore encourage each other, and build ye up one by one, just as ye also are doing.

Now we ask you, brothers, on behalf of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to him, for ye not to be quickly shaken from your mind, nor to be alarmed, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by a letter as by us, as that the day of the Christ has come.


Now we ask you, brothers, on behalf of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to him, for ye not to be quickly shaken from your mind, nor to be alarmed, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by a letter as by us, as that the day of the Christ has come. Let not any man deceive you in any way, because if not, the defection may come first, and he may be revealed--the man of sin, the son of destruction, read more.
who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or an object of worship, so as for him to sit in the temple of God, as God, displaying himself that he is God. Do ye not remember that when I was yet with you I told you these things? And now ye know that which restrains, for him to be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already working, only he who restrains it until now will develop from the midst. And then the lawless will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth, and will neutralize at the appearance of his coming. Whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and marvels of deceit, and in all deception of unrighteousness in those who are perishing, in return for which, they did not accept the love of the truth in order for them to be saved. And because of this God will send them the force of a delusion, for them to believe a lie, so that they might be condemned--all those who did not believe the truth, but who delighted in unrighteousness.

And when Jesus departed he was going from the temple. And his disciples came near to exhibit to him the buildings of the temple. But Jesus said to them, Do ye not see all these things? Truly I say to you, there will be left here, no, not a stone upon a stone, that will not be thrown down. And as he sat on the mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign of thy coming, and of the termination of the age? read more.
And having answered, Jesus said to them, See that not any man may lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am the Christ, and will lead many astray. And ye are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye not be alarmed, for all the things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes in places. But all these things are the beginning of travail. Then they will deliver you up for tribulation, and will kill you, and ye will be hated by all the nations because of my name. And then many will be caused to stumble, and they will betray each other and will hate each other. And many FALSE prophets will arise, and will lead many astray. And because of the increased lawlessness, the love of the many will become cold. But he who endures to the end, this man will be saved. And this good-news of the kingdom will be proclaimed in the whole world for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. When therefore ye see the abomination of desolation that was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let him who reads understand), then let those in Judea flee to the mountains. Let the man on the housetop not go down to take things from his house. And let the man in the field not return back to take his clothes. And woe to those who have in the womb and to those who suckle in those days. And pray ye that your flight may not happen in winter, nor on a Sabbath, for then there will be great tribulation, such as not has happened from the beginning of the world until now, nor, no, it will not happen. And if those days were not shortened, no flesh would be saved. But because of the chosen those days will be shortened. Then if any man should say to you, Lo, here is the Christ, or, Here, believe ye not. For there will arise FALSE Christs and FALSE prophets, and they will give great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen. Behold, I have foretold it to you. If therefore they should say to you, Behold, he is in the wilderness, do not go forth. Behold, he is in the inner chambers, do not believe. For as the lightning comes out from the east, and shines as far as the west, so also will be the coming of the Son of man. For wherever the carcass may be, there the vultures will be gathered together. But straightaway after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light. And the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of man will appear in the sky. And then all the tribes of the earth will beat the breast, and they will see the Son of man coming in the clouds of the sky with power and much glory. And he will send forth his agents with a great trumpet sound, and they will gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the boundaries of the heavens--as far as their boundaries. Now learn a parable from the fig tree. When its branch now becomes tender, and sprouts leaves, ye know that the summer is near. So ye also, when ye see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors. Truly I say to you, this generation will, no, not pass away, until all these things happen. The sky and the earth will pass away, but my words may, no, not pass away. But about that day and hour no man knows, not even the agents of the heavens, except my Father only. And as the days of Noah, so also will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until that day Noah entered into the ark. And they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away. So also will be the coming of the Son of man. Then two men will be in the field, one is taken, and one is left. Two women grinding at the mill, one is taken, and one is left. Watch therefore, because ye know not at what hour your Lord comes. But know this, that if the house-ruler had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. Because of this ye also be ready, because in that hour ye think not the Son of man comes.

And as he went forth out of the temple, one of his disciples says to him, Teacher, see what kind of stones and what kind of buildings. And Jesus having answered, he said to him, See thou these great buildings? There will be left, no, not a stone upon a stone, that will, no, not be brought down. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew questioned him privately, read more.
Tell us, when will these things be? And what is the sign when all these things are going to be fulfilled? And having answered them, Jesus began to say to them, Watch that not any man lead you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, I am, and they will lead many astray. And when ye may hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not alarmed, for it must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These things are the beginnings of travails. But watch ye yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and ye will be beaten in synagogues. And ye will be stood before rulers and kings because of me, for a testimony to them. And the good-news must first be preached to all the nations. But when they lead you, delivering you up, be not anxious before what ye might speak, nor meditate. But whatever may be given you in that hour, speak ye this, for ye are not who speak, but the Holy Spirit. And brother will betray brother to death, and a father a child. And children will rise up against parents, and will condemn them to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name, but he who endures to the end, this man will be saved. But when ye see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not (let him who reads understand), then let those in Judea flee to the mountains, and let the man on the housetop not go down into the house, nor enter in to take anything out of his house, and let the man who is in the field not turn back for the things behind, to take his cloak. But woe to those who have in the womb, and to those who suckle in those days. And pray ye that your flight may not be in winter. For those days will be tribulation, such as has not happened from the beginning of the creation that God created until now, and no, will not happen. And unless the Lord cut short the days, no flesh would have been saved, but because of the chosen, whom he chose, he cut short the days. And then if any man should say to you, Lo, here is the Christ, or, Lo, there, do not believe. For FALSE Christs and FALSE prophets will arise, and will give signs and wonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen. But watch ye. Behold, I have foretold all to you. But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars of the sky will be falling, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with much power and glory. And then he will send forth his heavenly agents, and will gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the outermost part of the earth as far as the outermost part of heaven. But learn a parable from the fig tree. When its branch now become tender, and sprouts the leaves, ye know that summer is near. So ye also, when ye may see these things happening, know ye that it is near, at the doors. Truly I say to you, that this generation will, no, not pass away, until all these things happen.

And as some spoke about the temple, that it was adorned with fine stones and gifts, he said, These things that ye see, the days will come during which there will not be left a stone upon a stone that will not be thrown down. And they questioned him, saying, Teacher, when therefore will these things be? And what is the sign when these things are going to happen? read more.
And he said, Watch that ye may not be led astray, for many will come in my name, saying, I am, and, The time has come near. Go ye not therefore after them. And when ye may hear of wars and tumults, do not be alarmed, for these things must first happen, but the end is not straightaway. Then he said to them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And great earthquakes will be in various places, and famines and plagues. And there will be fearful sights and great signs from the sky. But before all these things, they will throw their hands on you, and will persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. But it will go out from you for testimony. Settle therefore in your hearts not to premeditate to make defense. For I will give you a mouth and wisdom that all those who oppose you will not be able to contradict or to resist. And ye will be betrayed even by parents, and kinsmen, and friends, and brothers. And some of you they will condemn to death. And ye will be hated by all men because of my name. And, no, not a hair of your head will perish. In your perseverance ye gain your souls. But when ye see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that the desolation of it has come near. Then let those in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those in the midst of it depart out, and let not those in the countrysides enter into it. Because these are days of vengeance to fulfill all things that are written. But woe to those who have in the womb, and to those who suckle in those days. For there will be great distress upon the land, and wrath to this people. And they will fall by the jaw of the sword, and will be led away captive into all the nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, roaring of sea and of tossing, fainting of men from fear, and of anticipation of the things coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and much glory. And when these things begin to happen, stand upright, and lift up your heads, because your redemption approaches. And he spoke a parable to them. Behold the fig tree, and all the trees. When they are now sprouting, ye know seeing for yourselves that summer is now near. Even so ye, when ye see these things happening, know ye that the kingdom of God is near. Truly I say to you, that this generation will, no, not pass away until all things happen. The sky and the earth will pass away, but my words may, no, not pass away. But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down in debauchery and drunkenness and mundane cares, and that day come upon you sudden. For it will come like a trap upon all those who sit upon the face of all the earth. Watch ye therefore, making supplication at all times, so that ye may be considered worthy to escape all these things going to happen, and to stand before the Son of man.


But we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, about those who are asleep, so that ye may not grieve, as also the others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and arose, so also those who became asleep through Jesus, God will bring with him. For this we say to you in the word of Lord, that we who are alive, who remain for the coming of the Lord, will no, not precede those who became asleep. read more.
Because the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with a voice of the arch-agent, and with a trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive, who remain, will be caught up simultaneously with them in clouds to the Lord's gathering in the air. And so we will always be with Lord. Therefore encourage each other with these words.

But now Christ has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruit of those who are asleep. For since death is because of a man, the resurrection of the dead is also because of a man. For as by Adam all die, so also by Christ all will be made alive. read more.
But each in his own order. Christ the first fruit, then those of Christ at his coming.

If therefore ye were raised with the Christ, seek the things above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Think on the things above, not the things on the earth. For ye died, and your life has been hidden with the Christ in God. read more.
When the Christ, our life, is made known, then ye also will be made known with him in glory.


Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins, who, having taken their lamps, went forth to the bridegroom's gathering. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish, foolish women, who, having taken their lamps, took no olive oil with them. read more.
But the wise took olive oil in their vessels with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom delayed, they all slumbered and slept. But at midnight a shout occurred, Behold, the bridegroom comes! Go ye forth for his gathering. Then all those virgins were roused, and put their lamps in order. And the foolish said to the wise, Give us from your olive oil, because our lamps are going out. But the wise answered, saying, Perhaps there may not be enough for us and you. But go ye rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came. And the prepared entered in with him for the wedding festivities, and the door was shut. But afterward the other virgins also came, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But having answered, he said, Truly I say to you, I know you not. Watch therefore, because ye know not the day nor the hour in which the son of man comes.

Watch ye! Be alert and pray, for ye know not when the time is, like a man abroad, having left his house, and having given authority to his bondmen, and to each man his work, and commanded the doorkeeper that he should watch. Watch therefore, for ye know not when the lord of the house comes, at evening, or at midnight, or at cock crowing, or in the morning, read more.
lest having come suddenly, he may find you sleeping. And what I say to you I say to all, watch!

Let your loins be girded about, and the lights burning, and be ye like men waiting for their lord, when he may return from the wedding festivities, so that when he comes and knocks, they may straightaway open to him. Blessed are those bondmen whom the lord when he comes will find watching. Truly I say to you, that he will gird himself, and will cause them to sit down, and having come, will serve them. read more.
And if he should come in the second watch, and should come in the third watch, and find so, blessed are those bondmen. But know this, that if the house-ruler had known in what hour the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore, ye also become ready, because the Son of man comes at that hour ye do not suppose.

And as they heard these things, he spoke, adding on a parable because he was near Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately. He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And having called ten of his bondmen, he gave them ten minas and said to them, Do business until I come. read more.
But his citizens hated him, and sent an embassy behind him, saying, We do not want this man to reign over us. And it came to pass for him to return, having taken the kingdom. And he said for these bondmen to be called to him, to whom he gave the silver, so that he might know what any man gained by trading. And the first came, saying, Lord, thy mina gained ten minas. And he said to him, Well, thou good bondman. Because thou became faithful in the least, be thou having authority over ten cities. And the second came, saying, Lord, thy mina gained five minas. And he also said to him, And thou become over five cities. And another came, saying, Lord, behold thy mina, which I had put away in a napkin. For I was afraid of thee because thou are an austere man. Thou take up what thou did not lay down, and reap what thou did not sow. He says to him, Out of thy mouth I will judge thee, thou evil bondman. Thou had known that I am an austere man taking up what I did not lay down, and reaping what I did not sow. Then why did thou not give my silver into a bank, and having come I would have collected it with interest? And he said to those who stood by, Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has the ten minas. And they said to him, Lord, he has ten minas. For I say to you, that to every man who has, will be given, but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away from him. Nevertheless those enemies of mine who did not want me to reign over them, bring here, and kill them before me.

And he spoke a parable to them. Behold the fig tree, and all the trees. When they are now sprouting, ye know seeing for yourselves that summer is now near. Even so ye, when ye see these things happening, know ye that the kingdom of God is near. read more.
Truly I say to you, that this generation will, no, not pass away until all things happen. The sky and the earth will pass away, but my words may, no, not pass away. But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down in debauchery and drunkenness and mundane cares, and that day come upon you sudden. For it will come like a trap upon all those who sit upon the face of all the earth. Watch ye therefore, making supplication at all times, so that ye may be considered worthy to escape all these things going to happen, and to stand before the Son of man.


And to the agent of the congregation in Sardis write, These things says he who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars: I know thy works, that thou have a name that thou live, and thou are dead. Become thou watchful, and strengthen the remaining things that thou were going to throw away, for I have not found thy works made complete before my God. Remember therefore how thou have received and heard, and be on guard, and repent. If therefore thou will not watch, I will come upon thee as a thief, and thou will, no, not know what hour I will come upon thee.

But straightaway after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light. And the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of man will appear in the sky. And then all the tribes of the earth will beat the breast, and they will see the Son of man coming in the clouds of the sky with power and much glory. And he will send forth his agents with a great trumpet sound, and they will gather together his chosen from the four winds, from the boundaries of the heavens--as far as their boundaries. read more.
Now learn a parable from the fig tree. When its branch now becomes tender, and sprouts leaves, ye know that the summer is near. So ye also, when ye see all these things, know that it is near, at the doors. Truly I say to you, this generation will, no, not pass away, until all these things happen. The sky and the earth will pass away, but my words may, no, not pass away. But about that day and hour no man knows, not even the agents of the heavens, except my Father only.

Watch therefore, because ye know not the day nor the hour in which the son of man comes.

The sky and the earth will pass away, but my words may, no, not pass away. But about that day or that hour no man knows, not even the agents in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father. Watch ye! Be alert and pray, for ye know not when the time is, like a man abroad, having left his house, and having given authority to his bondmen, and to each man his work, and commanded the doorkeeper that he should watch. Watch therefore, for ye know not when the lord of the house comes, at evening, or at midnight, or at cock crowing, or in the morning, lest having come suddenly, he may find you sleeping.

Become thou watchful, and strengthen the remaining things that thou were going to throw away, for I have not found thy works made complete before my God.

If therefore thou will not watch, I will come upon thee as a thief, and thou will, no, not know what hour I will come upon thee.

Watch therefore, because ye know not at what hour your Lord comes. But know this, that if the house-ruler had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. Because of this ye also be ready, because in that hour ye think not the Son of man comes. read more.
Who then is the faithful and wise bondman, whom his lord appointed over his service, to give them the provision on time? Blessed is that bondman, whom his lord when he comes will find so doing. Truly I say to you, that he will appoint him over all things being possessed by him. But if that evil bondman should say in his heart, My lord is late coming, and should begin to beat the fellow bondmen, and to eat and drink with the drunken, the lord of that bondman will come in a day that he does not expect, and in an hour that he is not aware, and he will cut him in two, and place his share with the hypocrites. There will be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.

Therefore, ye also become ready, because the Son of man comes at that hour ye do not suppose.

Let not your heart be troubled. Ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many dwellings, and if not, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I come again, and will take you along to myself, so that where I am, ye may be also. read more.
And ye know where I go, and ye know the way. Thomas says to him, Lord, we know not where thou go. How can we know the way? Jesus says to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father, except by me.

Therefore Jesus knew that they wanted to ask him, and he said to them, Do ye inquire among yourselves about this, because I said, A little while, and ye do not look at me, and, Again a little while, and ye will see me? Truly, truly, I say to you, that ye will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. Ye will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will become into joy. When a woman brings forth she has pain because her hour has come. But when she has given birth to the child she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a man was born into the world. read more.
And now therefore indeed ye have sorrow, but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no man takes your joy away from you.


Now we ask you, brothers, on behalf of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to him, for ye not to be quickly shaken from your mind, nor to be alarmed, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by a letter as by us, as that the day of the Christ has come. Let not any man deceive you in any way, because if not, the defection may come first, and he may be revealed--the man of sin, the son of destruction,

Be patient therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient for it, until it receives the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient. Establish your hearts, because the coming of the Lord has approached.


And as the days of Noah, so also will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until that day Noah entered into the ark. And they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away. So also will be the coming of the Son of man. read more.
Then two men will be in the field, one is taken, and one is left. Two women grinding at the mill, one is taken, and one is left. Watch therefore, because ye know not at what hour your Lord comes. But know this, that if the house-ruler had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. Because of this ye also be ready, because in that hour ye think not the Son of man comes. Who then is the faithful and wise bondman, whom his lord appointed over his service, to give them the provision on time? Blessed is that bondman, whom his lord when he comes will find so doing. Truly I say to you, that he will appoint him over all things being possessed by him. But if that evil bondman should say in his heart, My lord is late coming, and should begin to beat the fellow bondmen, and to eat and drink with the drunken, the lord of that bondman will come in a day that he does not expect, and in an hour that he is not aware, and he will cut him in two, and place his share with the hypocrites. There will be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.

And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so also it will be in the days of the Son of man. They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. And likewise as it happened in the days of Lot. They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built. read more.
But in that day Lot went out from Sodom he rained fire and brimstone from the sky, and destroyed them all. It will be according to these things in that day the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he who will be on the housetop, and his vessels in the house, let him not go down to take them up. And let him who is in the field likewise not return for the things behind. Remember Lot's wife. Whoever will seek to save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose it will keep it alive. I say to you, in that night there will be two in one bed. The one man will be taken, and the other man will be left. Two will be grinding together. The one woman will be taken, and the other woman will be left. [This verse is not in the majority of the Greek manuscripts.] And having answered, they say to him, Where, Lord? And he said to them, Where the body is, there the vultures will be gathered together.


to the congregation of God that is at Corinth, to called men, to holy men who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus with all in every place who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ--both ours and theirs. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God always about you, for the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus, read more.
that in everything ye were enriched in him, in all speech and in all knowledge. Just as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that ye come behind in not one gift, waiting for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you until the end, irreproachable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful through whom ye were called for the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.


Who is the liar if not he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. Every man who denies the Son, also does not have the Father. Therefore ye, let what ye heard from the beginning abide in you. If what ye heard from the beginning abides in you, ye also will abide in the Son and in the Father. read more.
And this is the promise that he promised us: the eternal life. I wrote these things to you concerning those who lead you astray. And for you, the anointing that ye received from him abides in you, and ye have no need that any man teach you, but as the same anointing teaches you about all things, and is TRUE and is no lie, and just as it taught you, ye will a And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he is made known, we may have confidence, and not be shamed by him at his coming.


I write to you now this second letter, beloved, in which I arouse your sincere mind by a reminder, to remember the sayings that were earlier spoken by the holy prophets, and of the command of your apostles of the Lord and Savior. Knowing this first, that there will come at the end of the days, scoffers, proceeding according to their own desires, read more.
and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For, from since the fathers became asleep, all things continue this way from the beginning of creation. For this is willfully ignored by them, that long ago there were heavens, and an earth that came together out of water and by water by the word of God, by which the world then perished, having been overflowed with water. But now the heavens and the earth, which have been stored up by the same word, are being preserved for fire in a day of judgment and destruction of irreverent men.
