The Apostle Paul said: “Behold, I shew you a mystery; [WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, but WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED]. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and [THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED]” (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).
“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the [DAY OF JUDGMENT]: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
“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” (1 Thessalonians 4:16–17).
“Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14).
“Be ye also patient; stablish your heart: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh” (James 5:8).
“Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not” (Luke 12:40).
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).
