Revelation 20: 1- 4, 11- 21: 2

20:1 And I saw an Angel, descending from heaven, holding in his hand the key of the abyss and a great chain.
20:2 And he apprehended the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and he bound him for a thousand years.
20:3 And he cast him into the abyss, and he closed and sealed it, so that he would no longer seduce the nations, until the thousand years are completed. And after these things, he must be released for a brief time.
20:4 And I saw thrones. And they sat upon them. And judgment was given to them. And the souls of those beheaded because of the testimony of Jesus and because of the Word of God, and who did not adore the beast, nor his image, nor accept his character on their foreheads or on their hands: they lived and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and One sitting upon it, from whose sight earth and heaven fled, and no place was found for them.
20:12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing in view of the throne. And books were opened. And another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged by those things that had been written in the books, according to their works.
20:13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it. And death and Hell gave up their dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.
20:14 And Hell and death were cast into the pool of fire. This is the second death.
20:15 And whoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the pool of fire.


21:1 I saw the new heaven and the new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and the sea is no more.
21:2 And I, John, saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband.

Luke 21: 29- 33

21:29 And he told them a comparison: “Take notice of the fig tree and of all the trees.
21:30 When presently they produce fruit from themselves, you know that summer is near.
21:31 So you also, when you will have seen these things happen, know that the kingdom of God is near.
21:32 Amen I say to you, this lineage shall not pass away, until all these things happen.
21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away. But my words shall not pass away.
