Matthew 24:9-14 " Then shall they deliver you up to be
afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate
one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And
because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that
shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the
kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and
then shall the end come."
Matthew 24:16-31 " Then let them which be in Judaea flee
into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any
thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to
take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give
suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither
on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since
the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except
those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the
elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto
you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great
signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the
very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto
you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret
chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and
shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For
wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and
the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and
the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of
the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power
and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a
trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from
one end of heaven to the other."
Matthew 24:36-46 " But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no,
not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the
coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be
taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one
shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour
your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known
in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have
suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such
an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and
wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them
meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh
shall find so doing."
1Thessalonians 4:15-18 " For this we say unto you by the
word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the
Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall
descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with
the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are
alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet
the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore
comfort one another with these words."
