10 For the hour is nigh, and the day soon at hand,  when the earth is ripe:
11 And all the proud, and they that do wickedly,  shall be as stubble, and I will burn them up, saith  the Lord of Hosts, that wickedness shall not be up on the earth:
12 For the hour is nigh, and that which was spo ken by mine apostles must be fulfilled; for as they  spoke so shall it come to pass;
13 For I will reveal myself from heaven with  power and great glory, with all the hosts thereof,  and dwell in righteousness with men on earth a  thousand years, and the wicked shall not stand.
14 And again, verily, verily I say unto you, and  it hath gone forth in a firm decree, by the will of  the Father, that mine apostles, the twelve which  were with me in my ministry at Jerusalem, shall  stand at my right hand at the day of my coming in  a pillar of fire, being clothed with robes of righteous ness, with crowns upon their heads, in glory even  as I am, to judge the whole house of Israel, even  as many as have loved me and kept my command ments, and none else;
15 For a trump shall sound both long and loud,  even as upon mount Sinai, and all the earth shall  quake, and they shall come forth:
16 Yea, even the dead which died in me, to re ceive a crown of righteousness, and to be clothed  upon, even as I am, to be with me, that we may  be one.
17 But behold, I say unto you, that before this  great day shall come, the sun shall be darkened,  and the moon shall be turned into blood, and the  stars shall fall from heaven;
18 And there shall be greater signs in heaven [p. 62]
