No one would survive, if the days of distress had not been cut short by the Lord...; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days...
How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers!
-“But in those days, following that distress,
“ ‘the sun will be darkened,and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky,and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’
“At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.
