The LORD's Coming

The LORD's Coming

shared by Dana on Dec 17th 2021

Of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. (1 Thess. 5:1‑4)
That day won’t take you as a thief —
For ere the dull world shall awaken,
The treasure of earth shall be taken,
The salt of the earth and its light;
The dungeons of death shall be riven;
The bride to the Bridegroom be given;
His jewels be raptured to heaven,
In wondrous and glorious might.
