|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.
|For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
|So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
|O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
|And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
|And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
|And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
|And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
|And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
|And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
|He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
|But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
|And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
|And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
|And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
|And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
|And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
|And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
|And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
|And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
|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.
|This promise is also in: Angels
|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.
|I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;
|That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
|Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
|So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
