men; and there shall be a great hailstorm sent forth to destroy,  the crops of the earth: and it shall come to pass, because of  the wickedness of the world, that I will take vengeance upon  the wicked, for they will not repent: for the cup of mine in dignation is full; for behold, my blood shall not cleanse them  if they hear me not.
5 Wherefore I the Lord God will send forth flies upon the  face of the earth, which shall take hold of the inhabitants there of, and shall eat their flesh, and shall cause maggots to come in  upon them, and their tongues shall be stayed that they shall  not utter against me, and their flesh shall fall from off their  bones, and their eyes from their sockets: and it shall come to  pass, that the beasts of the forests, and the fowls of the air,  shall devour them up: and that great and abominable church,  which is the whore of all the earth, shall be cast down by de vouring fire, according as it is spoken by the mouth of Ezekiel  the prophet, which spoke of these things, which have not  come to pass, but surely must, as I live, for abomination shall  not reign.
6 And again, verily, verily I say unto you, that when the  thousand years are ended, and men again begin to deny their  God, then will I spare the earth but for a little season; and the  end shalt come, and the heaven and the earth shall be consum ed, and pass away, and there shall be a new heaven and a  new earth; for all old things shall pass away, and all things  shall become new, even the heaven and the earth, and all the  fulness thereof, both men and beasts: the fowls of the air, and  the fishes of the sea, and not one hair, neither mote, shall be  lost, for it is the workmanship of mine hand.
7 But behold, verily I say unto you, before the earth shall  pass away, Michael mine archangel, shall sound his trump,  and then shall all the dead awake, for their graves shall be  opened, and they shall come forth; yea, even all; and the  righteous shall be gathered on my right hand unto eternal life;  and the wicked on my left hand will I be ashamed to own be fore the Father: wherefore I will say unto them, depart from  me ye cursed into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and  his angels.
8 And now behold I say unto you, never at any time, have I  declared from mine own mouth, that they should return, for  where I am they cannot come, for they have no power; but  remember, that all my judgments are not given unto men:  and as the words have gone forth out of my mouth, even so  shall they be fulfilled, that the first shall be last, and that the  last shall be first in all things, whatsoever I have created by  the word of my power, which is the power of my Spirit; for [p. 114]
