      passage: 2Peter 3:1-3:18

      Chapter 3

      This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I
      stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful
      of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the
      commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this
      first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after
      their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for
      since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from
      the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of,
      that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing
      out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was,
      being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth,
      which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto
      fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But,
      beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the
      Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord
      is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;
      but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish,
      but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will
      come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away
      with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat,
      the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
      Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner
      of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
      Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein
      the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall
      melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise,
      look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
      Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent
      that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
      And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even
      as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto
      him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in
      them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood,
      which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the
      other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved,
      seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away
      with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

      passage: Mark 13:24-13:31

      Chapter 13

      But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened,
      and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall
      fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then
      shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power
      and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together
      his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to
      the uttermost part of heaven. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When
      her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer
      is near: So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to
      pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you,
      that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
      Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
