livered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things ? Rom. viii. 32.

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

2 Cor. iv. 17, 18; v. 1.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption ; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

And let us not be weary in well doing ; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Gal. vi. 7-9.

Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sake, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.

It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with Him, we shall also live with Him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him.

2 Tim. i. 10, 11.


For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.


I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith :

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing

2 Tim. iv. 6—8.

But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

And to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than the blood of Abel.

Heb. xii. 22-24.

Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours ; and their works do follow them.

Rev. xiv. 13.

As therefore the tares are gathered and burnt in the fire, so shall it be at the end of this world.

The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend and do iniquity;

And shall cast them into a furnace of fire : there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth,


Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.

Matt. xiii. 40–43.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net that was cast into the sea, and gathered of

every kind.

Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

So shall it be at the end of the world : the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from the just,

And shall cast them into the furnace of fire : there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matt. xiii. 47–50.

When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shali He sit on the throne of His glory :

And before Him shall be gathered all nations ; and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.

And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, and the goats on the left.

Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world :

For I was an hungred, and ye gave Me meat ;
I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink ; I was a
stranger, and ye took Me in :
Naked, and

clothed Me: I was sick, and ye

visited Me: I was in prison, and ye came unto Me.

Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we Thee an hungred, and fed Thee? or thirsty, and gave Thee drink?

When saw we Thee a stranger, and took Thee in ? or naked, and clothed Thee?

Or when saw we Thee sick and in prison, and came unto Thee ? And the King shall answer and say

unto them, Verily, I say

Inasmuch as

ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.

Then shall He say also unto them on His left hand, Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels :

For I was an hungred, and ye gave Me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me no drink :

a stranger, and ye took Me not in : naked, and ye clothed Me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited Me not.

Then shall they also answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we Thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto Thee ?

Then shall He answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not unto the least of these, ye did it not to Me.

And these shall go into everlasting punishment; but the righteous into life eternal.

Matt. xxv. 31–46.

I was

We must all appear before the judgment-seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 2 Cor. v. 10.

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened : and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Rev. xx. 12.


In My Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I


to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there you may I

be also. John xiv. 2, 3.

Neither pray

I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word;

That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be one in us : that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.

John xvii. 20, 21.

Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which Thou hast given Me: for Thou lovedst Me before the foundation of the world.
