"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 great sound of the trumpet, and they shall gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."(Matthew 24:30-31)
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, not on the sea, nor on any tree.





This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? 2 Peter 3
ASSURANCE OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST

"And wh en he had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward he aven as he went up, Behold two men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come inlike manner as ye have seen him go into heaven."(Acts 1:9-11)

"And then shall appear the sign of the sign 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 after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, not on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and sea, saying, Hurt not the earth neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads".(Rev.7:1-3)

And the very God of sanctify you wholly and I pray your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. Brethren pray for us. Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen." (1 Thessalonians 5:16-28)
