2 Peter 3:10 (Listen)
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies1 will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.2
Psalm 46:6 (Listen)
6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
2 Peter 3:13 (Listen)
13 But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Hymn: TLH 611, st. 1,2,6 :
The Day Is Surely Drawing Near
1. The day is surely drawing near
When God’s Son, the Anointed,
Shall with great majesty appear
As Judge of all appointed.
All mirth and laughter then shall cease
When flames on flames will still increase,
As Scripture truly teacheth.
2. A trumpet loud shall then resound
And all the earth be shaken.
Then all who in their graves are found
Shall from their sleep awaken;
But all that live shall in that hour
By the Almighty’s boundless pow’r
Be changed at His commanding.
6. Therefore my Intercessor be
And for Thy blood and merit
Declare my name from judgment free
With all who life inherit,
That I may see Thee face to face
With all Thy saints in that blest place
Which Thou for us hast purchased.
