vapors of 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 the Lord shall utter his voice, and all the ends of the earth shall hear it, and the 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.
9. And then shall the Jews look upon me and say: What are these wounds in thine hands, and in thy feet? Then shall they know that I am the Lord, for I will say unto them: These wounds are the wounds with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. I am he who was lifted up. I am Jesus that was crucified. I am the Son of God. And then shall they weep because of their iniquities; then shall 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 have received the truth, and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide, and have not been deceived, verily I say unto you, they shall not [p. 107]
