“In the day of our Lord’s return, there shall at length be a complete division. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye; at the last trumpet, each party shall be separated from the other forever more. Wives shall be separated from husbands; parents from children; brothers from sisters; masters from servants; preachers from hearers. There shall be no time for parting words, or a change of mind, when the Lord appears. All shall be taken as they are, and reap according as they have sown. Believers shall be caught up to glory, honour, and eternal life. Unbelievers shall be left behind to shame and everlasting contempt. May we think on these things and consider our ways.”
