2 Thes 2:1-4 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ, and by our gathering together unto
him,"-1 Thes 4:16; Mt 24:31; Mk 13:27 "That ye
be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor
by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand."-Mt 24:4; Eph
no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come
a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"-Rev
9:11; Mt 24:4; Dan 9:27 "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called
God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,
showing himself that he is God[pretending to be God/Christ]."-Is. 14:13;
Rev 13:6; 1 Cor 8:5
Matthew 13:24-30, 38-43
"The kingdom of
heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But…his
enemy came and sowed tares[false brethren/false teachings]among the wheat" "Wilt
thou then that we should go and gather them up?" "But he
said, Nay; lest while ye gather up
the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them." "Let both
grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say to
the reapers, Gather ye together first the
tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my
barn." "The field is the world; the good seed are the children of
the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one."-Compare
John 8:44; Mark 16:15; Gen 3:15 "The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the
end of the world; and the reapers are the angels." "As
therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the
end of this world." "The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall
gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do
iniquity;" "And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be
wailing and gnashing of teeth."-Cp. Rev 18:15-24; 17:15; Lk 13:24-28;
21:23-26; Hos 13:13-16; Mic 4:9-12; Jer 4:31; Jhn 5:43 "Then
shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who
hath ears to hear, let him hear."
1 Cor 15:50-55
"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
neither doth corruption inherit incorruption." Compare Mt 16:17; Jhn 3:3,
I show you a mystery, We shall not all sleep[die-natural, earthly death], but
we shall all be changed," Compare 1 Thes 4:15; Phil 3:21 "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." Compare Zech 9:14 "For this
corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on
immortality."-Compare 2 Cor 5:4 "So
when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this
mortal[soul]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?"-Compare Hos 13:14
Eze 13:18 And say, Thus saith the
Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs
upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my
people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
Eze 13:19 And will ye pollute me among my people
for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should
not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my
people that hear your lies?
Eze 13:20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make
them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the
souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
Eze 13:21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of
your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall
know that I am the LORD.
Eze 13:22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad,
whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he
should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:
Eze 13:23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations:
for I will deliver my people out of your hand:
and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
John 17:5-17 "And
now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had
with thee before the world was."-Compare Heb 1:3; 2:14-18; Phil 2:6; Col
have manifested thy name unto men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine
they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word."-Cp. Rev
9:13-27 "Now they have know that all things whatsoever thou hast
given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest
me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from
thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray
not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are
thine."-Cp. 1 John 5:19 "And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am
glorified in them. And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the
world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom
thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. While I was with them in
the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and
none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be
fulfilled."-Cp. Heb 2:13; 2 Pet 3:7; Ps. 109:7; Ezk 28:2, 9-10, 18-19 "And now
come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my
joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world
hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the
world."-Cp. 1 Jhn 3:13 "I pray not that thou
shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from
the evil."-Cp. Ezk 13:20 "They are not of the
world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word

blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the

able to withstand in the evil day, and
