The Day of the Lord (The Monstrance Series)
The Day of the Lord will come like a thief,
and then with a roar the sky will vanish,
the elements will catch fire and melt away,
the earth and all that it contains will be burned up.
Since everything is coming to an end like this,
what holy and saintly lives you should be living
while you wait for the Day of God to come,
and try to hasten its coming:
on that Day the sky will dissolve in flames and the elements melt in the heat.
What we are waiting for, relying on His promises,
is the new heavens and new earth,
where uprightness will be at home.
(2 Peter: 10-13)
