Matthew 24:37-25:30

Matthew 24:37-51 "37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the Coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the Coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your LORD doth come [The reason you "watch" is because "ye know not"]. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the Thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. [If you're NOT "ready", Christ will come when you don't expect Him. Your house will "be broken through" by the Unexpected "Thief", and you will be left destitute.] 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not [in the natural, unwatchful thinking] the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his LORD hath made ruler over His Household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his LORD when He cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That He shall make him ruler over all His Goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My LORD delayeth His Coming; 49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The LORD of that servant shall come in a Day when he looketh not for Him, and in an Hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

Matthew 25:1-30 "1 Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto Ten Virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the Bridegroom. 2 And five of them were Wise, and five were Foolish. 3 They that were Foolish took their lamps, and took no Oil with them: 4 But the Wise took Oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the Bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the Foolish said unto the Wise, Give us of your Oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the Wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the Bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with Him to the Marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, LORD, LORD, open to us. 12 But He answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the Day nor the Hour wherein the Son of man cometh. 14 For the Kingdom of Heaven is as a Man travelling into a far country, Who called His own servants, and delivered unto them His goods. 15 And unto one He gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took His journey. 16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his LORD's money. 19 After a long time the LORD of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, LORD, Thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21 His LORD said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the Joy of thy LORD. 22 He also that had received two talents came and said, LORD, Thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23 His LORD said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the Joy of thy LORD. 24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, LORD, I knew Thee that Thou art an hard man, reaping where Thou hast not sown, and gathering where Thou hast not strowed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid Thy talent in the earth: lo, there Thou hast that is Thine. 26 His LORD answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strowed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put My money to the exchangers, and then at My Coming I should have received Mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

The Resurrection of the Just
followed by
the Pre-Wrath Rapture

Revelation 21:2,9 "2 And I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her Husband... 9 And there came unto me one of the Seven Angels which had the Seven Vials full of the Seven Last Plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the Bride, the Lamb's Wife."

John 5:28-29 "Marvel not at this: for the Hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear His Voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the Resurrection Of Life; and they that have done evil, unto the Resurrection Of Damnation."

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 "13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. 15 For this we say unto you by the Word of the LORD, that we which are alive and remain unto the Coming of the LORD shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the LORD Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the Trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the LORD in the air: and so shall we ever be with the LORD. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these Words."
