The Final Week
Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. Revelation 8:8-9
If you would like to learn about the Book of Revelation in the most info packed and amazing way, then I would recommend watching every single video in this series from Koinonia House, and presented by Dr. Chuck MIssler. The rest of this section does dive into certain topics of the book of Revelation in more detail, for a closer look into each subject. This 24 session study of Revelation is a must, if you are wanting to understand this book.
1:21:53The Book of Revelation - Session 1 of 24 - A Remastered Commentary by Chuck Missler
If you already believe in an amazing beginning to our existence, that which was spoken into being by Almighty God, then an incredible end will not shock you. Personally I think people who believe in a very impossible "Darwinian Evolution" as the start to existence, require far more blind faith to believe that, but then again, they've never questioned it, or even verify so-called "facts". They just trust what has been taught for so long, and that's enough reason for them. It is what the majority believes these days, and people are going to think you are crazy for believing in the Bible for that reason alone. In the season of the end, It would be wise to lock your heart in a cage of faith and patience.
After the Rapture/mass disappearance, (when God takes his people home so that they don't have to endure the time of Jacob's trouble) there is going to be 7 years of terribly bad events. There will be many children who will also be taken to the Lord, this is because they never reached the "Age of accountability" or even born due to abortions. In other words, there were never old enough to make the decision for themselves, and so will be raptured. This topic is a bit ambiguous, but there are verses that addresses it specifically, and some that allude to it, and they are there to give us a lot of comfort on the matter.
God is a just God, and He is a God of love. If we know Jesus, we know his father, and after learning his character from the Bible, I certainly trust him with those who never had a chance to understand much of anything to even make a choice. The are the verses that address this specifically, and should give comfort concerning children and spouses.
1 Corinthians 7:14
“For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.”
Just define what it means to be “Sanctified.” if you have doubts.
'Moreover, your little ones who you said would become a prey, and your sons, who this day have no knowledge of good or evil, shall enter there, and I will give it to them and they shall possess it.”
To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law.
(That verse answers the famous question "What about all the remote people's who never heard of Jesus?)
So you can see from these verses, God does not hold accountable those who are unable to be accountable.
There is no defined age or ability, but we know the Lord does know, and he is just.
Something to think about on that point, is that there have been around 1.5 billion abortions Worldwide since Roe Vs. Wade in 1973.
In these times of great deception how many of them do you think would have found the Lord? Of course in no way do I support abortion, but even in that tragic number of death, God is there to give them a home with him forever. Where as, many of them probably would not have chosen Him in this life, having parents who think abortion is a good option.
Once the mass disappearance, there will be a lot of people with a lot of questions, and that is the main reason for this site. This site is here to be left behind for all those who's said they will believe it when they see it. I certainly hope they do, because there is a lot of "lying wonders" coming their way that are designed to unhinge and misguide you. I did my best to map out what is said to happen according to the Bible, and tried to read the plays of the enemy, according to how we see the stage being set for the "Aliens", and the Muslim and Catholic relations. Understanding the Book of Revelation requires studying the entire Bible thoroughly, but for a good categorized overview of where in the Bible end times knowledge comes from, this is a great website that lists everything "End times" related and where.
If you have been left behind
You can still be saved!
IT IS NOT by way of the "aliens" or the ones on earth performing miracles .
They WILL have that power and will deceive many, but they are NOT God, or with God. Don't trust anything they say, and do NOT take the mark. Eternity is far longer than 3 1/2 or 7 years.
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:9-14
You are in for some VERY hard times.
Revelation 6:9-11 speaks of those martyred during the Tribulation “because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained.” These martyrs will correctly interpret what they see during the Tribulation and will believe the gospel themselves and call on others to repent and believe as well. The Antichrist and his followers will not tolerate their evangelism and will kill them. All of these martyrs are people who were alive before the Rapture, but who were not believers until afterward. Therefore, there must be opportunity to come to Christ in faith after the Rapture
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.
Revelation 14:9-11 reads:
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Why is this "Loving" God being so mean?
This life is very short, and what we do here, matters for eternity. This is a test, with an important thing we need to figure out, which is to find out if there is a God, and to acknowledge what God did for us. To believe in his son Jesus Christ. God knows that, and he knows that at any cost to us, and suffering the ultimate cost to himself, this is what matters most for us, and he uses whatever it takes to get us to figure that out. It is well worth eternity with God. He knows this, and he knows there is great deception in the world. However, He seals up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work. -Job 37:7 "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse."
The following is a greatly simplified analogy, but it gives a basic idea of the situation of our general relationship as humankind with God. Let's say somebody gives you a brief case with 10 million dollars in it, no strings attached, just because they love you. You would be very inclined to say thank you, wouldn't you? What if you didn't say thank you to that person? What if instead of saying thanks, you instead said, "I can do this myself, my way, and I don't need you for it, but i'll take that cash. By the way, you didn't give me that cash, it evolved." Now, instead of the gift being 10 million dollars let's say that person gave you your existence and Earth itself. Without that gift, you never would have existed, or even had a place to exist. This is God, and his motive the whole time was love, and to provide a realm and spectrum for it to occur. We certainly owe it to him to give our thanks and be grateful that, that is his motive. Unfortunately real love can't exist with out the choice. This is cause for worship, genuine gratitude. All he wants is true love. What an amazing God we have! The fact that, THAT is his way, and not some other existence. It's when we fall away from him things get bad.
Just read the Bible, that message is very clear. It's no different from your own father. How did he feel about it when you didn't listen to him? Good fathers love their kids, in the same way. They tell their kids what they should or shouldn't do, and even punish them because they love them. After all how many of us pray more when things aren't going well? Do you think that is new news to God?
Now in the tribulation, the final chance and warning, people are going to be put to death for their belief in the Gospel. By beheading in fact. According to the verses discussed in the other sections. Being put to death is far better, than the other option. Do NOT receive the mark, that you will need to buy and sell food. This is the last chance you will ever get at eternal life, and it will still be the hardest thing you will ever do. This means that unless you know how to sustain yourself beyond the system before this one world currency is enforced, you won't be able to feed yourself or your children, if they are here with you in this last "seven".
Many will get angry at God for being so hard on them, and say, "Well how should we have known? We've been lied to our whole lives." Well, the entire Bible has been written about Israel's history of falling away, or ignoring God and be brought to ruin by those who got them to follow other gods, or practices. This was so that some may return and acknowledge that He is the one and only God, who wants nothing more than to provide an existence where true love can exist, and for us to understand life and choose love. What have we been doing with our short time on earth? Usually the answer is chasing the wind.
Scientifically, our existence is, and has always been totally ludicrous. Sure there are laws, constants, and grand designs, BUT HOW DID THEY GET THERE?! It's SO exact. If you ever think about any one piece of creation and how it exists you will need to acknowledge a designer. That isn't even to mention how they all tie into each other in a complex and seamless symbiotic coexistence. In other words you have to be bullheadedly defiant to try and find another explanation using science.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Why doesn't God stop evil?-Ravi Zacharias 6:55
The Judgements of Revelation
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing.
They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-10
First Trumpet: Vegetation Struck
Revelation 8 : 7
The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.
Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck
Revelation 8 : 8-9
Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck
Revelation 8 : 10-11
Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.
Fourth Trumpet: The Heavens Struck
Revelation 8 :12-13
Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.
13 And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
Fifth Trumpet: The Locusts from the Bottomless Pit
Revelation 9: 1-12
Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. 6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them. 7 The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. 8 They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. 10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon. 12 One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.
Sixth Trumpet: The Angels from the Euphrates
Revelation 9: 13-21
Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. 18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed—by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths. 19 For their power is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm. 20 But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. 21 And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.
The Seventh Trumpet:
Consisting of seven bowls of judgement:
God Steps in.
Revelation 11: 15-19
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. 16And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. 19And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God upon the earth. 2And the first went, and poured out his bowl upon the earth; and there fell foul and evil sores upon the men who had the mark of the beast, and upon them who worshiped his image. 3And the second angel poured out his bowl upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man; and every living thing died in the sea. 4And the third angel poured out his bowl upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 5And I heard the angel of the waters say, You are righteous, O Lord, who is, and was, and shall be, because you have judged thus. 6For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink; for they are deserving of it. 7And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are your judgments. 8And the fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun; and power was given unto it to scorch men with fire. 9And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, who has power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. 10And the fifth angel poured out his bowl upon the throne of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. 12And the sixth angel poured out his bowl upon the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, who go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 17And the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceedingly great.
"The Judgments of the Tribulation" 28:31
We also know that there will 144,000 tribes from Israel to preach the Word after it does happen. there will also be two witnesses that will stand at the Temple and preach the Gospel until the Antichrist kills them at the midpoint of the Tribulation, and then after a few days will be resurrected. That is what is when the sacrifices cease, and the abomination that causes desolation.
The 144,000 explained
For a close examination into the prophecies of the end, I highly recommend going through the efforts of Bill Salus, put together in either book form, or DVD. The chart above titled," Events of The Seven Year Tribulation" was made using what he presents in his material. It is a scripturally based timing of events, after a careful examination of the prophecies, specifically with the cohesive timing of the events in mind.
As we get closer to the fulfillment of these prophecies, the prophecies begin to come more, and more into focus. We are getting so close now, that most, if not all of the stage is set for these events to occur. It is now just a matter of time.
If you'd like to get more into detail and understand these events better, you can go to
and buy his DVDs or books for the detailed study.

This is a diagram made to visually explain what we read from the Book of Daniel and Revelation laid down beside each other.
After one gets past the 4 kingdoms, you will notice that you're entering a fringe realm into conjecture and possibilities. There are several fields of view, and a few different proposed ideas as to who the players may be. Some are more supported than others, but this side of the rapture, we won't ever see who signs the 7 year peace deal, and we probably won't hold the answer as to who the ten kings are that hand their power to him. Nevertheless, this will be highly important knowledge for those who find themselves in the final seven years of the age as we know it. It will confirm beyond any shadow of a doubt who the Antichrist is, and who not to listen to! Don't take the mark!!

The 24 Elders — Powerful Proof of the Pretrib Rapture 15:23
Although this is one of the strongest proofs for a pre-final week rapture of the church, it is a topic and a question that occurs in the Book of Revelation, and so this section has been put here. Jesus Christ himself Identifies the 7 lamp stands as the 7 churches, and the seven churches were actually 7 real churches. They also not only represent the entire church body as a whole, they also foretell the entire timeline of church history up to the point of the rapture. One major thing that should be noted about the 7 lamp stands, is that they are located on earth in chapter 3, and in chapter four, they are represented by the 24 elders who are before the thrown roof of God. This video by Lee Brained, from his channel Soothkeep, explains it all very well.
Who Are The 24 Elders
The Two Witnesses
"Who Are The Two Witnesses In Revelation Chapter 11" 49:23
"Two Witnesses Clearly Identified" 26:24
The Two Witnesses - Chuck Missler 10:30
The Two Witnesses — Who Are They? 23:27
Of the two witnesses being discussed, the prophet Elijah is not the witness in contention. There are those who say it could be Enoch, and those who say it is Moses. It would seem that the arguments to support this being Moses, are a lot stronger than the argument for Enoch. Even if the main point to support those who believe it is Enoch is because he was taken by God, that is also true for Moses' body just as these videos state, when Michael the Archangel came and recovered his body to take to heaven as recorded in Jude verse nine. Josephus' book Antiquity of The Jews also mentions this. In addition to that point, the argument made that he never actually died, and he needs to die in order to follow the rules is a moot point. Millions of people are going to be raptured, and so none of us will have actually died either.
There is also an argument that the two witnesses may be two very large groups of people, but that is incorrect for many reasons. The nouns being used about them are in singular form, but also because when they are killed, their bodies will lay in the street for three days, for all to see. Again, that's street, just one street in the village. If this was referring to two very large groups, those bodies would really need to be piled high to fit them all onto that one street. After watching these videos and being made aware of how much we know about these two witnesses, it is unlikely a person would still think these are two groups. Once this all unfolds, I am sure there will be no question as to who is burning people alive with fire from there mouth, that should pretty much settle it for everyone I would hope.
Here is also an article on the two witnesses.
As you can see after studying what is on the pages here, and what information we have been given, this is certainly not something to be ignored. If you have found yourself reading this after the rapture, your prayer will be heard to accept Jesus as your savior. Pray for his protection and mercy. When the time comes for you to accept the "MARK OF THE BEAST", on your hand or forehead, which will be identified by it being the only way to buy and sell.
DO NOT RECEIVE IT.
Though your way of life may be saved with the mark of the beast, Your eternity in heaven will be severed forever, and you will be subject to all of the wrath found in the book of Revelation while you're still alive for a short period. You will seek death but you won't find it. And again in Matthew Twenty four:
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
If you aren't willing to lose your head, you will need to do your best to hide, survive, and prepare to be hidden for three and a half years. Find a way to be self sufficient for that entire time. You need to have food and supplies to last you for the remainder of the "Mark of the beast" which will be enforced by penalty of death. After that you won't be able to buy or sell anything. If drinkable water, or electricity is going to be a difficulty, or a concern, building a wood gasifier, a water turbine, a wind turbine, or a solar turbine to run a generator, and having a good survival garden will be essential. You can collect water from the air with an air conditioning unit as it condensates, and it would also cool air in hot conditions. Salt blocks also collect moisture from the air, any salty water can be distilled with a solar distillery so you can drink it. We know there will be nuclear war, the Sun will get burning hot, and one hundred pound hailstones will occur. If you can, a fallout shelter is good option, otherwise bury shipping containers, and hide the air vents and entry. I also recommend painting the inside ceiling like the sky if you have the time. It really does make a big difference on morale.
Here is a link to list of several good ways to build a gasifier.
Pray for forgiveness and believe in Jesus so that you may be saved at the end. Share this knowledge with as many people as you can.
Stay strong, be careful, and read God's word, which has written for you,
How to get ETERNAL LIFE
according to the Bible
Believe in your heart Jesus is The Lord, and that God raised him from the dead.
Declare it with your mouth, and you will be saved.
If you believe Jesus is your savior, be thankful! We're going home to place where 1 Corinthians 2:9 happens!
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
If you aren't quite sure Jesus is your savior, put your heart out on a limb. Nobody even needs to know you said it, God knows. It doesn't cost you anything, it is very easy, the reward is eternal life, just take a moment to believe,
Jesus is who he said he is.
Even if nothing happened, you are still in the same place you were before. The risk vs. reward here is an easy decision.
John 3: 12-21
If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are worked in God.
Acts 11: 16-18
Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ So if God gave them the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way?” When they heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, “So then, even to Gentiles God has granted repentance that leads to life.”
While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?”
They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”
So Paul asked, “Then what baptism did you receive?”
“John’s baptism,” they replied.
Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”
What is the will of The Father?
“And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”
