2 Peter 3:9
8 Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, that a single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are like a single day. 9 The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some regard slowness, but is being patient toward you because he does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief; when it comes, the heavens will disappear with a horrific noise, and the celestial bodies will melt away in a blaze, and the earth and every deed done on it will be laid bare.
4 Ezra 8:592 Esdras
57 Yes, and they trampled on his just servants; 58 they said to themselves, “There is no God”, though well aware that they must die. 59 Yours, then, will be the joys I have predicted; theirs the thirst and torments which are prepared. It is not that the Most High has wanted any man to be lost, 60 but that those he created have themselves brought dishonor on their Creator’s name, and shown ingratitude to the One who had put life within their reach. 61 My day of judgment is now close at hand, 62 but I have not made this known to all; only to you and a few like you.’
