Westminster Confession of Faith

(Chapter 32, paragraph 2)

“At the last day, such as are found alive shall not die, but be changed; and all the dead shall be raised up with the self-same bodies, and none other, although with different qualities, which shall be united again to their souls forever.”







The Great Tribulation

(Matthew 24:11-22)


(11)  And many false prophets shall arise, and shall lead many astray.

(12)  And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold.

(13)  But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.

(14)  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a testimony unto all the nations; and then shall the end come.

(15)  When therefore ye see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let him that readeth understand),

(16)  then let them that are in Judaea flee unto the mountains:

(17)  let him that is on the housetop not go down to take out things that are in his house:

(18)  and let him that is in the field not return back to take his cloak.

(19)  But woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days!

(20)  And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on a sabbath:

(21)  for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be.

(22)  And except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
