Nations come near to hear, and people, listen
let the earth hear, and all that is in it;
the world, and all things that come from it.
Because the indignation of Yahu is upon all nations,
and His fury upon all their armies:
He has utterly destroyed them,
He has delivered them to the slaughter.
Their slain also shall be cast out,
and their stink shall come up out of their carcasses,
and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved,
and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll:
and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falls from the vine,
and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
~ YashaYahu 34:1-4 ~
For yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night.
For when they shall say,
“Peace and safety,”
then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child,
and they shall not escape.
But you, brothers, are not in darkness,
that that Day should overtake you like a thief.
You are all the sons of light,
and the sons of the day:
we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others;
but let us watch and be sober.
For those that sleep sleep in the night
and those that are drunk are drunk in the night.
But let us, who are of the day, be sober,
putting on the breastplate of faith and love;
and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
For God has not appointed us to wrath,
but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ who died for us,
that whether we wake or sleep,
we should live together with him.
So comfort yourselves together,
and build up one another,
even as you do.
~ Thessalonians [A] 5:2-11 ~
