Acts 13: 14, 43- 52

13:14 And so, in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, who said, ‘Hearing, you shall hear, but not understand; and seeing, you shall see, but not perceive.
13:43 Then the just ones shall shine like the sun, in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear.
13:44 The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field. When a man finds it, he hides it, and, because of his joy, he goes and sells everything that he has, and he buys that field.
13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking good pearls.
13:46 Having found one pearl of great value, he went away and sold all that he had, and he bought it.
13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net cast into the sea, which gathers together all kinds of fish.
13:48 When it has been filled, drawing it out and sitting beside the shore, they selected the good into vessels, but the bad they threw away.
13:49 So shall it be at the consummation of the age. The Angels shall go forth and separate the bad from the midst of the just.
13:50 And they shall cast them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
13:51 Have you understood all these things?” They say to him, “Yes.”
13:52 He said to them, “Therefore, every scribe well-taught about the kingdom of heaven, is like a man, the father of a family, who offers from his storehouse both the new and the old.”

Revelation 7: 9, 14- 17

7:9 After these things, I saw a great crowd, which no one could number, from all the nations and tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and in sight of the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.
7:14 And I said to him, “My lord, you know.” And he said to me: “These are the ones who have come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and have made them white by the blood of the Lamb.
7:15 Therefore, they are before the throne of God, and they serve him, day and night, in his temple. And the One who sits upon the throne shall dwell over them.
7:16 They shall not hunger, nor shall they thirst, anymore. Neither shall the sun beat down upon them, nor any heat.
7:17 For the Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, will rule over them, and he will lead them to the fountains of the waters of life. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

John 10: 27- 30

10:27 My sheep hear my voice. And I know them, and they follow me.
10:28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall not perish, for eternity. And no one shall seize them from my hand.
10:29 What my Father gave to me is greater than all, and no one is able to seize from the hand of my Father.
10:30 I and the Father are one.”
