dead at His appearing.
Let no one deceive you about the second
coming, Paul warned.

that no man deceive you.
No one knows that day, not even the
angels, but my Father only.

for that blessed hope
and glorious appearing.

after 3½ years of ministry]
He caused sacrifice to cease.
Christ’s sacrifice as The Lamb of God,
left the sacrificial system unnecessary

by stoning Stephen]

Beast then is taken into captivity
[French Revolution: 1798 Pius VI taken to France]
Another beast comes up out of the earth:
like a lamb (youthful nation),
then speaks as a dragon (becomes a world power).

all power and signs and lying wonders
precedes the Advent.
Many false Christs and prophets will
showing great signs and wonders.
Beast's head is healed: and all the
world wonders after the beast,
and worships the dragon.
Seond beast will force world to worship

As it was in the days of Noah
so shall it be in the days of the coming
[Gr. parousia] of the Son of man.
They were eating, drinking marrying
until the day Noah entered the ark.
They knew not until the
flood came and took them all away
...and destroyed them all. (no
Likewise as in the days of Lot in Sodom:
they ate, drank, bought, sold, planted, built.
But the same day that Lot went out,
fire rained down and destroyed them all.
Even so will it be in the day when
the Son of man is revealed.

Gospel shall be preached
in all the world...and then shall the end come.
A great voice comes out of heaven's
temple, from the throne, "It is done."
"He that is unjust, let him be unjust
he that is filthy, let him be filthy still;
he that is righteous, let him
be righteous still;
he that is holy, let him be holy still."
At that time Michael stands
up [probationary time has ended]
and there shall be a time of trouble such as never was.

of the world to this time, nor ever.
But in the time of trouble God will
hide us in His pavilion:
in the secret of His tabernacle.
He that endures to the end shall be

even to the end of the world.”
There were voices, thunders,
lightnings, a great earthquake.

every mountain and island moved out of their places.
Every island fled away, and mountains
were not found.
Earth is moved exceedingly, and reels
to and fro like a drunk man.
Mountains quake, hills melt, the earth
is burned at God's presence.
But God is the saints' refuge: they
will not fear though the earth is removed,
...though the mountains be carried
into the midst of the sea.
As lightning shines from
east to west so shall be His coming [Gr. parousia]

two grinding: one taken the other left.
Two men sleeping (death) in one bed (grave),
two women grinding, two men in the field.
Taken where? Jesus said, "Where the vultures are gathered together"
You don't want to be taken; you want to be left behind!
The carcases shall be meat for the fowls of heaven.

some to everlasting life.
Not all shall sleep
...the sleep of death.
Jesus said Lazarus was asleep. Then
explained, "Lazarus is dead"
Jesus said Jairus' dead daughter was only asleep.
For in death there is no remembrance of God:
in the grave who shall give Him thanks?
Shall the dead arise and praise God?
or declare His faithfulness in destruction?
For the living know that they shall die, but the dead know not anything.
The soul that sins shall die.

in chains of darkness (on this earth)

and bring to pass His strange act.
...to consume the whole earth.

He will make them as a firey oven;
He will swallow them up;
the fire shall devour them.
They shall not be able to deliver themselves
from the power of the flame.
Their flesh, eyes, and tongue shall
while they stand on their feet.
They go away into everlasting punishment...
...punished with everlasting destruction
from the presence of the Lord.
Death and hell were cast into the lake
This is the second [final] death.
The wages of sin is [eternal] death
