Matthew 13:24-30, Matthew 13:36-43, Genesis 3:15, Genesis 6:1-5, John 8:42-45, Isaiah 1:4, 1 John 3:9-12, Matthew 24:36-42, Daniel 2:41-44, Galatians 2:4, 2 Peter 2:1-3, 2 Peter 2:12-19, Jude 1:10-13, Deuteronomy 32:5, Revelation 9:1-6, 1 John 2:18-19, Matthew 24:21-28

As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man…
