3 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 that 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 righteousness  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 commandments and  none else 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  even the dead which died in me, to recieve a crown  of righteousness, and to be clothed upon even as I  am to be with me that we may be one
4 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; and there shall be greater signs  in the heavens above and in the earth beneath, and  there shall be weeping and wailing among the children  of hosts of men; and there shall be a great hail  storm 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 veangeance upon the  wicked for they will not repent: for the cup of mine ind ignation is full: for behold my <blood> shall not cleanse them if  they hear me not
5 Wherefore I the Lord will send flies upon the earth  face of the earth, which shall take hold of the inhabitants  thereof 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 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 [p. 94]
