In the end the righteous will be separated from the wicked–the righteous being those who have been led to treasure Jesus.

KJV Text:

The section starts at about 5:50 and ends at about 7:9

     44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. 52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 612:
That Day of Wrath, That Dreadful Day

— Organ Audio


1. That day of wrath, that dreadful day, 
When heav’n and earth shall pass away! 
What pow’r shall be the sinner’s stay? 
How shall he meet that dreadful day? 

2. When, shriv’ling like a parched scroll, 
The flaming heav’ns together roll; 
When louder yet, and yet more dread, 
Swells the high trump that wakes the dead, 

3. Lord, on that day, that wrathful day, 
When man to Judgment wakes from clay, 
Be Thou the trembling sinner’s Stay, 
Tho’ heav’n and earth shall pass away.
