The Sign of The Second Coming of the Lord
 

The following is an expanded translation, based upon all of the information from seventeen different translations, including the definitions of the Greek words and all related Scriptures, in regards to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ:


1. What will be the sign and token to indicate and signify, when these predictions and events are about to take place, to be accomplished and fulfilled; regarding the coming and bodily presence of your return?


2. And of the entire, full, completed and specific period of time, of the end of the age and of the end of the world?


3. For the Gentle nations, the heathen and pagan people will rise up and move up against and among one another’s bordering nations and kingdom against kingdom, one place of reign touching another.


4. There will be famines, a lack of food, causing destitution of people being without food.


5. An outburst of diseases, plagues, pestilences and troubles.


6. And great earth-shocks, earthquakes and a great shaking of the ground, causing it to tremble, shake sideways and back and forth, for the earth will be shaking in divers or different and various places, down through its’ distribution in many locations.


7. And there will be great signs of terror and fearful sights from heaven.


8. All these are the beginning, of the grief, the first of the troubles and sorrows, like the early pains and travail of childbirth.


9.And there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood; and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And should destroy and bring to ruin them which morally corrupt the earth. And there were lightning and voices and thundering and an earthquake and great hail.


10. Watch ye therefore and take heed to yourselves, for you do not know what hour your Lord will come. It may be during the evening or at midnight or in the early morning; What I say unto you I say to all, Watch. Therefore, be ye always ready and do not let your hearts be burdened and weighted down with a life filled with self-indulgence and pleasure, with a state of drunkenness and the cares and worries of life; in case the Lord comes and finds you sleeping, for in such an hour in which you are unaware and are not thinking, the Lord will come. For these things of life will be a snare and trap upon all who dwell upon the earth. Watch and pray that you may be accounted worthy to escape these things that will come to pass and to be allowed to stand before the Son of man. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.


11. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: In an almost indivisible moment of time, at the instant of the jerking and twinkling of the eye, at the farthest, final, last, towards the latter end of the uttermost trumpet, for the trumpet will sound; To seize; to take for oneself,  catch (away, up), pluck, pull, take (by force); take or grasp something {someone} abruptly or hastily with emphasis on the idea of suddenness or quickness; and the dead in Christ shall rise first: the dead will be waken and rise up to a state of undecaying immortality and we shall be changed and made different; Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


12. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.


13. Immediately after the pressure, affliction, anguish, burden, persecution, oppression, distress, tribulation and trouble of those days; as a sign, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light and the stars of heaven shall fall from the firmament of the sky; and upon the earth there will be distress of the nations, having a mental state of having no way out, as in bewilderment and confusion, because of the loud roaring of the sea and roaring waves; and the forces and powers that control heaven will be shaken, moved in disorder and will be disturbed.


14. And 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. And 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. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And 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 exceeding great.


15. And then shall they see the sign of the Son of man coming in the clouds of the sky with power and great glory and all the tribes of the earth shall smite the breast and mourn.


16. And shall he send forth his angels with a great sound of a trumpet and gather his elect from the uttermost end of the heavens.
