|747||CHRIST'S SECOND COMING||John 14, Acts 1, and Matthew 24 KJV|
Let not your heart be troubled:|
ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again,
and receive you unto myself;
that where I am, there ye may be also.
While they looked stedfastly toward
heaven as he went up, behold,
two men stood by them in white apparel;
which also said,
Ye men of Galilee,
Why stand ye gazing up into heaven?
this same Jesus, which is taken up
from you into heaven,
shall so come in like manner
as ye have seen him go into heaven.
for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
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.
Therefore be ye also ready:
for in such an hour as ye think not
the Son of man cometh.
Who then is a faithful andwise serand wiser> whom his Lord hath made ruler over
to give them meat in due season?
Blessed is that servant,
whom his Lord when he cometh
shall Lind so doing.
