smoke; and before the day of the Lord shall come, the sun shall be darkened, and the
moon be turned into blood, and stars fall from heaven; and shall be gathered unto this
place, and then they shall look for me, and behold I will come: and they shall see
me in the clouds of heaven, clothed with power and great glory, with all the holy
angels: and he that watches not for me shall be cut off.
7. But before the arm of the Lord shall fall, an angel shall sound
his trump, and the Saints that have slept, shall come forth to meet me in the
cloud: Wherefore if ye have slept in peace, blessed are you, for, as you now behold
me, and know that I am, even so shall ye come unto me and your soul shall live, and
your redemption shall be perfected, and the saints shall come forth from the four
quarters of the earth.
8. Then shall the arm of the Lord fall upon the nations and then
shall the Lord set his foot upon this mount, and it shall cleave in twain, and
the earth shall tremble, and reel to and fro, and the heavens also shall shake, and

nations of the earth shall mourn, and they that have laughed shall see their folly;
and calamity shall cover the mocker; and the scorner shall be consumed; and they
that have watched for iniquity shall be hewn down and cast into the fire.

wounds in thine hands, and in thy feet? Then shall they know that I am the Lord,

they lament because they persecuted their king.
10. And then shall the heathen nations be redeemed, and they and they
that knew no law shall have part in the first resurrection, and it shall be tolerable
for them; And Satan shall be bound, that he shall have no place in the heart of the
children of men. And at that day, when I shall come in my glory, shall the parable be
fulfillid, which I spake concerning the ten virgins; for they that are wise and
