“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for [THE THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN ARE TEMPORAL]; but [THE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN ARE ETERNAL]” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
“Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But [THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, WHICH ARE NOW], by the same word [ARE KEPT IN STORE, RESERVED UNTO FIRE AGAINST THE DAY OF JUDGMENT AND PERDITION OF UNGODLY MEN]” (2 Peter 3:6-7).
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which [THE HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT, THE EARTH ALSO AND THE WORKS THAT ARE THEREIN SHALL BE BURNED UP].
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?” (2 Peter 3:9-12).
“[NEVERTHELESS WE, ACCORDING TO HIS PROMISE, LOOK FOR NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH, WHEREIN DWELLETH RIGHTEOUSNESS]. 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 3:13-14).
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, [THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN]” (Hebrews 11:1).
“[FOR SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD MEN HAVE NOT HEARD, NOR PERCEIVED BY THE EAR, NEITHER HATH THE EYE SEEN], O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him” (Isaiah 64:4).
“[NOW THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH]: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But [WE ARE NOT OF THEM WHO DRAW BACK UNTO PERDITION; BUT OF THEM THAT BELIEVE TO THE SAVING OF THE SOUL]” (Hebrews 10:38–39).
