Isaiah 2: 1- 5

2:1 The word that Isaiah, the son of Amoz, saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2:2 And in the last days, the mountain of the house of the Lord will be prepared at the summit of the mountains, and it will be exalted above the hills, and all the nations shall flow to it.
2:3 And many peoples will go, and they will say: “Let us approach and ascend to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob. And he will teach us his ways, and we will walk in his paths.” For the law will go forth from Zion, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
2:4 And he will judge the nations, and he will rebuke many peoples. And they shall forge their swords into plowshares, and their spears into sickles. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they continue to train for battle.
2:5 O house of Jacob, let us approach and walk in the light of the Lord.

Romans 13: 11- 14

13:11 And we know the present time, that now is the hour for us to rise up from sleep. For already our salvation is closer than when we first believed.
13:12 The night has passed, and the day draws near. Therefore, let us cast aside the works of darkness, and be clothed with the armor of light.
13:13 Let us walk honestly, as in the daylight, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in promiscuity and sexual immorality, not in contention and envy.
13:14 Instead, be clothed with the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in its desires.

Matthew 24: 37- 44

24:37 And just as in the days of Noah, so also will be the advent of the Son of man.
24:38 For it will be just as it was in the days before the flood: eating and drinking, marrying and being given in marriage, even until that day when Noah entered into the ark.
24:39 And they did not realize it, until the flood came and took them all away. So also will the advent of the Son of man be.
24:40 Then two men will be in a field: one will be taken up, and one will be left behind.
24:41 Two women will be grinding at a millstone: one will be taken up, and one will be left behind.
24:42 Therefore, be vigilant. For you do not know at what hour your Lord will return.
24:43 But know this: if only the father of the family knew at what hour the thief would arrive, he would certainly keep vigil and not permit his house to be broken into.
24:44 For this reason, you also must be prepared, for you do not know at what hour the Son of man will return.
