JESU COME BACK
| As Jesus was sitting
on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell
us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be
the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"
Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you.
For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ, and will
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are
not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There
will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
All these are the beginning of birth pains.
"Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death,
and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and
hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many
Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow
but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel
of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony
to all nations, and then the end will come.
Matthew 24, 3 - 14
| Heaven and earth will
pass away, but my words will never pass away.
"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in
heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the
Son of Man.
For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking,
marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark;
and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came
and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the
Son of Man.
Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left.
Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and
the other left.
"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your
Lord will come.
Matthew 24, Verse 35 - 42
| "At that time
the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps
and went out to meet the bridegroom.
Five of them were foolish and five were wise.
The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them.
4The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.
The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy
and fell asleep.
"At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out
to meet him!'
"Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps.
The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our
lamps are going out.'
" 'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and
you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.'
"But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom
arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding
banquet. And the door was shut.
"Later the others also came. 'Sir! Sir!' they said. 'Open the
door for us!'
"But he replied, 'I tell you the truth, I don't know you.'
"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the
hour. Matthew 25, 1 - 13
