"The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness.
Instead, He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish,
but everyone to come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9-12)
"For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words." (1Thessalonians 4:16-18)
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
